Graco – Modes 3 Lite XT Click Connect Travel System


We managed to get our hands on one of the fabulous Graco Modes 3 Lite XT Click Connect Travel Systems and can’t wait to tell you all about it.  

Main Features

gracoThe first thing that you need to know about the Modes 3 Lite XT Click Connect Travel System is that it is not just a pushchair, oh no, it is so much more.  It doubles as a pram using the fabulous infant bassinet, or carry cot attachment, which of course enables you to then take the little one, even if they are still sleeping, from the pram and into the house!  However, that, you might think is brilliant on it’s own, but the Modes 3 Lite also utilizes the  Graco SnugRide Click Connect 35 Infant Car Seat to make traveling with your new addition that much easier.

The  Graco SnugRide Click Connect 35 Infant Car Seat allows you to face baby to the world or yourself and will accommodate any size from 4-35lb and up to 32″.  Of course it can also be securely fitted in your car so that baby can travel safely no matter how long the journey might be.  Again removing the need to wake your little on to move from car seat to stroller or the need to carry an additional piece of equipment! It also has a snazzy Click Connect System which enables you to use a ‘one-step, secure attachment’ for the car seat to the stroller! 

The stroller itself has plenty of positions, up to a total of 9 and so can easily be adjusted to ensure your little mite is not just comfortable, but able to explore the world around them easily as they grow. Of course that could cause you a little concern when it comes to making sure your bundle of joy is securely and safely kept inside the pushchair at all times.  No need for any worry at all because the Graco Modes 3 Lite comes with a harness that is not only top of the range and secure, but it can be converted from a 3 point to a 5 point harness as the little one grows! You can use the stroller up until your baby weighs 50lbs.

The Modes 3 looks fantastic as well, it has a really modern sporty look, but appearances don’t detract from the maneuverability of the device at all.  It has a complete 3-wheel maneuverability and a front swivel locking wheel, so you will always have the maximum amount of control you need when out and about.  It is also lightweight as well as being sturdy, ticking all of the boxes that new parents should be looking for when shopping for a stroller.

All of this travelling about can easily wear out your tiny one and it is inevitable they will end up falling asleep at some point, so to keep them shielded from the world when they do there is a large extendable canopy, it has a zipper for maximum coverage and of course can be used to keep those harmful sun rays away from baby’s face,

Other Features

Storage is always an issue when looking at pushchairs and prams, they aren’t small things and the life we lead today means we are generally short on space.  The Graco Modes 3 Lite has a wonderful ‘one-second, one-hand‘ folding system that makes it super easy to pack away the stroller.  It doesn’t take up a great deal of space and you can chose to store the Modes 3 with or without the toddler seat attached.  Once you do fold it down there is a storage lock that automatically engages, keeping the stroller safe while not in use and securely packed away.

Other notable features of this fabulous travel system from Graco include the addition of a ‘Parent’s Tray’ that comes complete with not just one, but two cup holders, a storage compartment and somewhere for you to store your keys safely.  There is also a large basket to pop all of your supplies or shopping in, whether you need to take your changing bag along or do a little shopping, there is a great storage space to help you out with that.

Our Verdict

We love the Graco Modes 3 Lite XT Click Connect Travel System, it is perfect for the modern family and looks great, but is so much more than just looks.  It has everything you could need in a stroller and more.  You can find out more about the Graco Modes 3 Lite XT Click Connect Travel System by checking out Graco’s website!
