The New Batmobile

We received our new Graco Symbio B on Monday.
I built it on Monday night & we took it for a test drive on Tuesday.

I have to say, so far so good…!!

It is an absolute dream to push & steer when it’s in forward facing mode.
I only took it into the local town centre, so haven’t given it a run on uneven terrain yet, or tried to get it in & out of the car, but here’s my thoughts up to now…

Sam looked snug in the seat – it is well padded and the harness seems very secure – not to mention I didn’t trap my fingers in it – RESULT!

I love the fact the hood has a sun visor which basically extends the hood well beyond normal cover – perfect in the low sunlight on Winter’s Days.
It is very sturdy and feels like it is very well made.

My only complaint to date is the tiny shopping basket – it was full after putting just the rain cover into it.
Graco have redeemed themselves there though – you can buy a bag to attach to the back of the pushchair to provide extra storage.
The folding technique isn’t as easy as our old pushchair’s, but I am sure I will get used to it soon.

I am looking forward to taking it out for a proper test drive as soon as the weather allows. (It was pouring down today, so I stayed inside to shake off the cold I’ve been fighting for a week). Fingers crossed it’ll brighten up later so we can take it for a walk to the park.

In the meantime, here’s some photos of Sam in the pushchair for the first time….
