This post was sponsored by Evenflo as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received the Evenflo Sibby Travel System to facilitate my review.
With three kids I have actually gone through three different travel systems. Practically, I should have used the same for all three but the first time I made the mistake of getting the cheapest I could find. Let’s just say I got what I paid for. The next one was better but still lacking in many regards. I was high hopes for the Evenflo Sibby travel system from Target and it did not disappoint! Third time is the charm right?
This thing that really sets this one apart is the Ride Along Board on back so you can transport two kids without the bulk or expense of a double stroller. This one is perfect for a growing family, especially when another child can’t quite walk all the time but doesn’t need to be in the stroller the whole time either.
I’ve never seen this board before. I used to have a sit and stand and there was not enough room for the child to stand. They basically had to lean backwards. I was always kicking and walking into it because of the position it sat in. When they are passed the point of needing to sit in a stroller full time but still too tired to always walk, this Ride Along Board provides the perfect solution.
The Ride Along Board provides much more room and works surprisingly well. The wheels turn easily and in every direction.
I also like that it’s easily detachable so you can just remove and store it when not in use!
The handles are extra tall so that child and parent can hold on at the same time.
It’s also nice if you are tall like me and don’t have to bend down to handles. That’s a back killer!
The larger tires on back make for a much smoother and more stable ride. It almost feels like a jogger when pushing it but without the pop-pable tires. I’ve been through a few of those as well!
I also like the way this collapses. You just have to pull on a handle in the middle of the seat and it folds in half. I much prefer this to the other kind where you have to push one part while you simultaneously pull another! Simplicity works!
When folded in half it collapses pretty flat but it is pretty long. It can squeeze nicely into a trunk.
The bar that goes across the front of the stroller is really easy to remove if you aren’t using the infant car seat clicked into it. My toddler actually likes it there to hold onto but it’s nice to have the option to remove.
The canopies on both car seat and stroller are extra long and provide complete coverage of the baby when used together.
I struggled a bit with clicking the car seat into the stroller. It’s not as easy as it was to the base so there’s a bit of a learning curve to it. Like anything though you get used to and become an old pro in no time.
The basket underneath is a nice size. It’s much larger than any I have seen. Part of it seems to be that the seat of the stroller is higher than most and the height of the back tires probably helps. You can actually fit a full diaper bag in there and still have room for more.
The one feature I don’t particularly care for is the cup holder. It’s nice that the size is adjustable for different sized drinks but I don’t like it on the side. It tends to stick out and get caught on things and I think it’s just a matter of time until it’s broken off.
The car seat could have used a bit more cushion but it’s better than many out there. I liked that it had a 35lb weight limit so even my toddler can still use it. He looks like a giant in it but thanks to all the levels of adjustment, it’s not a problem!
It has the nice pillow which is comfy for newborns who still can’t support their head.
It clicks easily into the base and most importantly, is easy to take out! I have really struggled with some!
The handle you hold onto is much wider than most making it easier to carry.
While I love the car seat, the stroller is my favorite of the set. I’ve gone through even more strollers than I have car seats so I know what works and what doesn’t for my family.
This new travel system is available now at Amazon! They recently re-designed their baby section and it looks amazing! You can find this travel system among the others and I think you’ll find it’s the best bargain for all it’s amenities!
Overall it’s a really nice travel system, somewhere in the middle price range with a lot of really nice features. The Ride Along Board makes it the perfect on the go stroller for those that don’t want to deal with the hassle of a double stroller or sit and stand. Motherhood is hard and all the gear that comes with a baby can be overwhelming. Anything that makes my life easier makes me a happy mom! Most importantly, my kids are happy and safe in the car seat and stroller. You can’t put a price on that!
