Rating:  4/5 


"The Graco Symbio pushchair is a very lightweight and easy to manoeuvre pram. It features the 'one click' system which allows you to interchange between the padded bucket seat, the carry cot and the car seat with no fuss whatsoever.


The frame is very light and folds away very easily into a reasonable size, it can be unfolded using only one hand and the handlebar can be moved so the pushchair can become forward facing or rear facing. The tyres are air filled and the brake is situated at the side of the handlebar which takes a little getting used to if you are used to using your foot to apply the brake. A rain cover is included and the whole pushchair only weighs 7.5KG
The bucket seat is nice and comfy and can be tilted back for comfort if your child is sleeping. The harness clicks together and adjusts easily. The seat is only suitable from 6months onwards so if you have a newborn you would have to buy the carry cot or the car seat separately. The car seat adaptor comes with the pushchair and it clicks onto the frame with no effort at all.
My favourite points of this pushchair is the moveable handle switching from front facing to rear facing, also the ease of interchanging between the seat and car seat is great. The pram is very easy to push and can move around the tightest of obstacles.
My only negative points is the hood on the bucket seat. The material is very thin and doesn't match the quality of the rest of the pram. I found after trying to attach it to the seat the stitching had already become loose and frayed. I also find that because the seat is only suitable from 6months onwards that it could become quite expensive if you bought the carry cot (£129.99) and the car seat (£109.99) as well.
All in all this is good looking pushchair that is practical, easy to use and stylish. Perfect for new parents and baby
