Safety 1st RIVA 6-in-1 Flex Modular Travel System Review
I am very excited that I got to try out the new Safety 1st RIVA 6-in-1 Flex Modular Travel System. One of the exciting aspects of this stroller is it is made with lightweight recycled plastic. The fabric is also both washer and dryer safe make cleaning so simple.
When you get the stroller it does require some simple assembly. According to the direction you need to put wheels and basket on chassis but mine were already on which may explain why to stroller jingles a little when pushed. All together it only took me about 20 minutes to put all together.
The stroller comes with a car seat which is lightweight (7.5lbs) and simple to use. Can be used with or without base until baby is 35lbs. The car seat can attach to stroller frame with adapters (included) and face parent or forward face.
The stroller is lightweight at less than 20lbs. The stroller seat can be used as a bassinet or seat with the simple clipping or unclipping of a buckle which is nice. When in seat mode it has a small recline and the reclining buckle is not very easy to use. The seat can be parent facing or forward facing by simple flipping the seat around. It comes with two drink holders on handlebars and and belly bar for the seat. On smooth surfaces it pushes well. The seat is small so even though the weight limit is 50 lbs it would really only be good for the first few years with an averaged sized child. The basket is large but not huge and can be accessed from both front and back plus sides of stroller and could definitely hold a large diaper bag and more. Fold is compact and simple but not one handed and can be done with seat on forward facing.
For a lightweight $300 travel system stroller for use with an infant or small toddler it seem like it could be a good choice for your car or travel stroller. For me who needs a rugged stroller that can handle all the bumpy city sidewalks and walking a lot it would not be my first choice.
Molly, her husband, and their new baby plus a 4 and 6 year split their time between their little piece of the cape in Orleans and Cambridge. She was a kindergarten teacher before her oldest was born then became a SAHM. She loves running, books, supporting literacy, nature walks, arts, craft, knitting and sewing as well as being outside and on the beach!
