Good not great
March 20, 2022
While this is a versatile stroller and the bottom basket is a great size it is bulky and fragile. Broke after one flight.

Great system overall.
August 12, 2021
Love the fact the entire system is available in one package. The stroller is easy to fold and unfold. The infant seat has extra padding and nice to cradle a newborn and the additional bassinet that converts to stroller seat which is pretty cool. We have not tried all of that yet. The straps in the bassinet look uncomfortable. When hooking the car seat to stroller it seems awkward and a bit scary. Sort of difficult to latch evenly with baby aboard.

Super nice travel system
July 14, 2021
The Maxi-Cosi Zelia 2 is a great travel system! It is really easy to set up and collapse. It is lightweight and has a sleek design. The material is comfortable and easy to clean. I really like the amount of storage there is under the stroller. It easy to maneuver too. Definitely recommend this travel system!

So Simple!
July 5, 2021
This was so simple to put together. I put the stroller together in less then 1- minutes and the car seat already came put together. This stroller is premium and I love how I can simply recline it when my baby falls asleep. We just used it at a theme park and the bottom had great storage and it was great. The handle adjusts for different heights and my husband can push it so easy.

Amazing Stroller!
June 21, 2021
This stroller is just what we needed. It's lightweight and stylish. I love the different modes because it can fully recline for baby. It is very easy to adjust. There is a very useful canopy and visor to protect the baby from sunlight. I like that there is even a peekaboo window. The infant car seat is pretty light and seems really safe and durable. I like that the seat pad comes off and I can wash it in the machine when necessary. This stroller is really cozy for baby!

Smooth ride, hard to put together
June 21, 2021
The stroller is so lightweight, but I did find it hard to put together and take apart. I found it to be harder than other ones on the market. It does have a really smooth ride and a good amount of storage underneath. I love the leather handlebar because it doesn't hurt your hands like some of the other ones. The car seat is also lightweight, which is very important to me because I hate lugging around a huge car seat. It seems easy to clean, too. I do like this system, however found it to be hard to take down and put back together each time (in and out of the trunk).

Great quality travel system at good price
June 20, 2021
The Maxi-Cosi mico XP car seat has the best, buttery soft fabric that is ideal for a newborn/infant. The quality of the fabric by far exceeds expectations and is softer than Nuna's fabric. It also is removable and washable which is essential. One downside to the carseat was that I struggled to push both buttons to lower the carrying bar, they seem hard to push. It also does weigh a little more than the Nuna Pipa. I also like that it has the option to use the base or a seatbelt. For the stroller, I like that it comes with a cup holder, as other brands you have to buy them separate for extra. The stroller has the same buttery soft fabric as the car seat which my daughter loves. I like that it folds up and stands on its own, but I struggle to fold it one handed. It requires multiple steps to close and open. The weight of the stroller is manageable and comparable to the nuna mixx. Overall I'd recommend the travel system for a good middle range price point where you get some of the "luxury" aspects without the hefty price tag.

Beautiful design
June 19, 2021
This travel system is absolutely gorgeous. I love the design and love the leather handle bar on the stroller- it creates a very high-end look without the price tag! It's very well-built, but the cloth on the seat does seem a little cheap, but time will definitely tell the durability. So far, I love it.

I absolutely fell in love with this stroller car seat combo it works amazing the car seat is so lightweight and easy to carry and detach from the stroller ..the stroller has a detachable carrier that can be switched to either use the Carrier or the car seat on the base ..it is so easy to push around it turn so easy very light weight and it's very quality made the leather handles are amazing on the stroller part and it's just so convenient to go in and out of places it folds simply and isn't hard to take in and out of my vehicle I'm so glad I found this it is the best ever I'm so honored to have had received this set to try out

Wow - this system is awesome
June 19, 2021
I cannot say enough good things about this travel system. The infant car seat and base are secure, the car seat has an insert that is super comfortable for baby and the seat will fit all sizes from tiny newborn to a larger baby as it's growing The stroller will accommodate all sorts of terrains, different styles of baby seat style and would fit easily in the back cargo or think space of pretty much any vehicle. Very very pleased and impressed with this travel system and definitely recommend it

Not What I Expected
June 16, 2021
For the price, I thought this was a “higher end” product. However I was disappointed. The strap to tighten/loosen the harness is tough to pull, it is too wide with the base to fit one of my vehicles and isn’t very secure when installed with the seatbelt, the canopy gets hung every time, and the handle bar is difficult to move. It does have the comfort I was looking for though. I wanted to return and buy something else, but Albee Baby doesn’t allow returns if something has been used even once so I’m unfortunately stuck with it now.
  • Comfortable
  • Difficult to use, too big with base to fit properly in vehicle.

Comfortable and super lightweight!!
June 14, 2021
Comfortable and super lightweight!! This travel system was everything it said it would be and more! As a mom, who often travels on my own with 2 young kids, this system was so lightweight and easy to use while out and about. I can easily fold it up and place in the back of the car without the stress of a bulky system while having my 4 year old next to me. It is definitely practical. We have used the system while at the zoo and my 7 month old seemed was very comfortable, secure and cool throughout the day. I also really love how nice it looked. I felt like the travel system looked really cute, expensive and quality-made! I have owned 2 other systems before and this has been the best quality while also having the best appearance. Would definitely recommend!!

Perfect travel system
June 11, 2021
The size, easy and multi function use of this travel system is absolutely what we needed. We have always loved the maxi cosi brand. My older daughter used a convertible one for years. It has been great long lasting quality. I love this travel system and so does my baby!

Plenty Of Options
June 11, 2021
I want to start out with saying that I was highly confused at first while putting this together. It was not easy in the slightest, even when I had instructions just because there are so many bells and whistles. Truly just a user issue. So, you have a full infant car seat with base included. The base has; a push handle for height adjustment, numbered arrows with step by step instructions and a base angle indicator. The car seat itself has; an ergonomic handle, push button in back for lifting car seat out, canopy, easily removable fabric for washing and an infant insert. On to the stroller! I love the wide feet in the back, rather large under storage area, and extendable handle. The structure of the stroller seems sturdy and accommodating. The right wheel also locks to keep stroller in place. Features; a removable cup holder that can be placed on either side, bassinet with a canopy that has button in back that you push while pulling handle to change seat position, handle for bassinet for easier use, extra clips for switching canopy with car seat for less time spent transferring baby. The bassinet lays down flat or leans down for sitting and even has straps as well. The material all around for both car seat and stroller feel very nice and well made, look very stylish and on trend. Material on stroller handle and bassinet handle remind me that of leather and feel nice. Final thoughts: I absolutely love this setup! It has made traveling so much easier and is helpful when we go to big places such as the store, shopping etc. Stroller folds down and fits easily while still providing some space for groceries. We have used both options but for now ultimately prefer the car seat on the stroller base due to ease of use. This is a lifesaver when you have multiple children! Overall I highly recommend!

Travel system
June 11, 2021
This travel system is super easy to put together. It can be conveniently opened and closed quickly. Looks like a high quality product but is not crazy expensive. Gets the job done and helps us to get from point A to point B. Love the color we received. It is light and easy to move around.

I was always afraid of buying strollers because they look heavy and not very easy to carry around. I was really surprised with this one! The Maxi-Cosi Zelia 2 Max 5-in-1 Travel System with Mico XP is super lightweight, great design and easy to carry around!

Amazing Travel system!
June 9, 2021
There is so much cushion in this stroller & car seat that I wish I could sit in it! The car seat itself is light and the whole system (bassinet conversion) works perfectly, versatile system and good value. Was very easy to assemble, the quality is great, it is a beautiful stroller, easy to take the car seat in and out of holder, and rides smoothly. I am very pleased overall with this product! Looks sleek and modern

Super lightweight
June 8, 2021
Ok so for starters, this whole set is beautiful!!! The car seat is so lightweight compared to others we've had with our older children, even the stroller is on the lighter side! I've read of people having problems with their wheels, we've used ours for a week straight with zero flaws. The car seat easily goes into the stroller and the base in the car. So far no complaints and our son seems comfortable and happy! I also love that everything is machine washable so if he spills his milk we can easily remove the covers and wash them.

Light and easy to close!
June 8, 2021
This stroller is amazing! It's easy to maneuver without any squeaking and closes up in seconds. There's a good amount of space underneath for storage and the opening is large so you don't have to struggle getting things in and out. Good for tall toddlers too! There's a bunch of shoulder straps holes so you can get the right fit. Has more than our previous stroller. Also closes so much easier than our previous. Big big fans of this one!

May 25, 2021
The stroller has a nice look to it and has plenty of storage underneath but the wheels always stick especially when coming down from a curb. It's also difficult to get the car seat on the stroller

Wheel broke off while baby was in it!
February 14, 2021
I bought this system for my daughter and she has only used it two months. While using it today the large wheel fell off. The the shaft that the wheel plugs into (so it can spin) completely failed. Could have been very dangerous. Now she's out of town for a couple days and has no stroller for her new baby

I didn't get a carseat adapter
February 14, 2021
I really like the travel system however I didn't get the carseat adapter with mine so unfortunately I can't use the stroller with my carseat. And I can't find the adapter anywhere to buy it. It's such a shame.

It's pretty okay
December 25, 2020
I honestly wanted to love this. Especially that it came in a bundle with the stroller. The straps are hard to adjust and I cannot get them tight enough to where there is no slack, but the chest buckle leaves a mark on my baby's chest. And when I think it's tight enough I see her head isn't positioned correctly! The fact I also have to press the two buttons to get it out of the stroller, without taking out the adapters, is challenging because I don't want to open the car seat cover in winter :/ The handle bar has also gotten stiff and it takes a large amount of space in the back seat. We have to push the forward seat in order to create space. At least we put the car seat behind the passenger seat and not the driver because my husband is tall and pushes his seat back. As for the inserts and headrest, they aren't the best. In comparison with the Evenflo I loved that car seat better because there was no flimsy inserts. It had a clean design and I kind of regret not buying it. So I'm waiting until I have to convert to the convertible car seat.

For the actual stroller, I haven't used it yet, but I did use it once on a night stroll and she loved it and it was nice. I'll have to wait until summer to actually use the stroller part!

Beautiful but horrible wheels
December 14, 2020
I was excited when I was gifted this product for my first baby. It is a beautifully made stroller and car seat. After the first few months, the wheels on the stroller would get stuck and drag. It makes it so difficult to navigate and turn when it gets stuck. For the price of this travel system, I would expect more from this stroller.

Horrible Travel System
December 11, 2020
Stroller looks nice but that's about it. There wheels absorb zero vibrations from the ground so your baby is shaking and vibrating on any outdoor surface. The recline adjustment on the bassinet/ stroller seat is an awkward strap that you can't adjust with the baby in the stroller. You need separate attachments for the car seat with no place to store them securely when you fold up the base. The car seat sits the baby very deep and the inserts for an infant were awful. There's nothing to hold the straps to the side to get your baby in. The straps are so tight to adjust you need manly upper body strength and the clasp for the harness is so hard to open, I have to get my husband every time. Past my return period so to get rid of this system I have to try to sell secondhand for pennies. Dont waste your money, buy the better brands!

Love the convertibility
December 9, 2020
I've been using mine for almost 7 months. Love the ease in which I can change from bassinet to a sitting position. This is great for when he has fallen asleep in the chair and want to make him more comfortable.
Super easy to close and open too.

The only issue I've had is that one of the front wheels will not straighten with out me toeing it back into place. Makes maneuvering a bit difficult.

The car seat took some getting use to when unlatching it from the base. I have a small car so that added it to the difficulties. When using it in my husband car, which is more spacious in the back, it was easy to tech for the latch and pop tight out.

Good product and all but not what I expected from a $500 product, material was kind of cheap and flimsy and very thin, also the stroller was mostly plastic.
  • Good system in the fact that it includes bassinet, car seat, and stroller with six interchangeable modes.
  • Cheap, low quality material

Hate it ... wheels are terrible!
October 29, 2020
I had I hopes for this system. It is not a cheap set so you would expect it to be worth the money. It is not! Trust the reviews you see .... the look of the stroller is nice, the fact that it is a travel system is good but THE WHEELS are that bad. I don't care how nice it looks or what you can interchange if you can push it and use it without being frustrated. We go anywhere and the wheels get stuck, lock up or go the other way. It is so frustrating and embarrassing when in public. Sad because it is not cheap. The wheels are everything, find a better stroller.

October 19, 2020
Okay so I loved the look of the stroller and how it was a travel system but.... THE WHEELS😭 I will be in a store with my son in the stroller and the wheels lock or go the other way. It is so annoying I have switched the wheels and everything ! I just get so annoyed at it and want to cry because it wasn't cheap.

Could be better
May 31, 2020
The fabric of the stroller isn't that great. Think some parts are very cheaply made. Very disappointed that the car seat canopy is already ripping with minimal use and it's very flimsy. I used the bassinet/stroller ONCE for less than 3 hours and the thread is already coming apart from the seat cushion inside. My 2 month old was sleeping during the whole time so no movement should've caused the fabric to start coming apart. The car seat harness is extremely difficult to tighten and loosen. I have to pull very hard I'm order to adjust. I also find it very difficult to remove the car seat from the base. For me it wasn't something I could snap and take off. I struggle every time. Base is wobbly and the canopy isn't as long as they state it is for stroller and carseat. The handles of the stroller rest against the floor when the stroller is closed. Not very sanitary! Huge back wheels. Besides the cons, pretty easy to install. You can also watch videos on how to set up if you seem to have trouble. Very easy to close stroller. There's a cup holder included that you can attach to the side,even though I prefer something in the middle and not too much on the side. This does look like a fancy stroller but the fabric portion just doesn't make me happy at all.

Waste of money
May 21, 2020
I bought this stroller and I didn't use it the first 2 months of my baby. Naw I have been using it for 3 months and it started to make noises. It's not possible to put my baby to sleep in the stroller because it make noises and he cannot sleep. The other issue is that it's kinda narrow, my baby is only 5 months and it's so uncomfortable when I want to put him in the stroller. Another issue is that when I want to adjust the stroller to the sitting position it's so uncomfortable for my baby and I can only adjust to the sitting position if it's faces to me, if I want to flip it to the other side it looks so weird and uncomfortable. I don't know if I got the defective one or this is how they made it. I'm so disappointed and I wish I could return it. It was a waste of money

Great Product
February 27, 2020
I purchased this item 4 months before having my son, but I was able to use it for my two-year-old. The seat worked wonderful for her, but it could be a little taller. She is 3 1/2 feet tall so she kept hitting her head on the top. But other than that, she loved that I could pull the sun visor all the way down. It was also a smooth ride and folds up easily. I had my son in December and he loves the car seat. He falls asleep instantly and stays asleep even going on bumpy roads or sidewalks. So, he must be comfortable. Overall great product the only suggestion is that the seat itself be made for taller toddlers. 👍

Versatile and functional
July 26, 2019
I was lucky enough to receive this product from the WeeSpring parent panel. Below I have listed some pros/cons I found which may be helpful when considering a travel system for your child. If your like me, I obsessed for months trying to figure out the best for my child only to end up just as confused as when I started. This system overall has been wonderful for use with both my children. Although it does have some cons which may not be the case you someone else, I found it to be versatile, functional and overall easy to use and install.
1. Lightweight compared to my other infant carrier 2. Fabric soft and was easy to remove and clean.3. The whole system was easy to put together. It took me about 30 minutes to read the instructions and assemble.4. The stroller is easy to use and folds easily. Is lighter compared to some other brands. 5. Lots of storage in the stroller bottom. 6. Love the anti tip bar on the carseat base. 7. The stroller is easy to maneuver and smooth ride on fairly smooth pavement. This however is not for rough terrain as these are plastic wheels. 8. The child seat on the stroller is so easy to take off and on. My 2 year old used this as my son is still in infant seat. The stroller was easy to push and maneuver with her in it. I was able to get her in and out easily as well. 9. cup holder on the side however I'd rather have a center console to hold drinks etc. 10. The handle is adjustable for height.
Unfortunately maxicosi only allows a certain number of character to write a review this hindering an accurate listing of pros and cons and there were several like seat and base are bulky making it difficult to place in compact car and even my crossover. If you try to use The seatbelt strap on the base the seat won't lock down. You almost have to use the latch system. Customer service is lacking. It arrived broken and I attempted to contact via email and phone with no luck. Infant carrier is hard to place on stroller. Fabric on canopy is flimsy.

Luxe Travel System with Adjustable Height Push Bar
July 23, 2019
This travel system is gorgeous. While taking it out of the box, I couldn't get over the colors of the fabric and the luxe faux-leather. It's definitely a show-stopper. My little one loved riding in the seat in the most upright position, and I loved being able to easily reverse it so that he could look out in front of us or be facing me. It comes in really handy when the sun is really bright for a quick turn-around, or just when he gets overwhelmed and needs to see his mama. There is also plenty of room in the 'basket' underneath for a cooler, diaper bag, and anything else you need to bring with you - we were surprised to fit a larger cooler bag, swim bag, towels, and two large cups for a full day at the pool!

The canopy is probably the best canopy I've seen on any baby product - there is just so much coverage when extended fully! My favorite feature is the ease of extending the length of the push bar! I am tall, as is my husband, and a one-button height change in that bar is amazing, and not a feature I have found before in any other stroller. It also performed better than expected on grass and gravel, though I would still recommend mostly for use on paved stretches.

There were a few little things that were challenging, but they were minimal compared to the other great features. We found it a little difficult to collapse the stroller for storage or transport, and hooking the harness in the bassinet/seat of the stroller is quite difficult for someone with arthritis (like my mom). It takes a significant amount of hand strength (my husband disagrees, but I stand by my assessment!).

The car seat was fairly easy to install, and the anti-rebound bar is a feature I really like for safety reasons. For looks as well as comfort and function, I'd give this carseat a 10 out of 10! The way it attaches to the stroller is quite convenient as well. Thanks so much to the weeSpring Parent Panel for providing me with this Travel System to try.

Overall Great with a Little Room for Improvement
July 19, 2019
Overall, I really loved the stroller that was a part of this travel system. I loved the versatility of a seat and bassinet and that it could be turned to face forward or face towards me. The canopy on the stroller was fantastic - its over-sized design kept my baby out of the sun and the material it was made out of was breathable so she didn't get overheated. The large basket on the bottom was another huge plus and easily held everything we needed (which is a lot with four kids). The stroller was also really easy to maneuver; even my big kids could push around their baby sister with ease. The materials that the car seat and stroller are made out of are very soft and have a luxurious feel to them. The car seat had clear, easy to understand instructions and it was pretty straightforward to adjust the straps. I also really like shape of the car seat handle - it saved my hips from bruising and the baby from getting bumped around too much.

The only things I didn't like (which is why I'm rating it 4 stars instead of 5) is that you need the extra pieces to switch between the car seat and regular seat modes for the stroller. It makes it more difficult to switch between using it with an infant and a toddler. The other negative was that the stroller felt a little wobbly, like some of the pieces didn't connect tightly enough.

Overall, I really like the car seat and stroller. It looks and feels high-end and it's versatility is great. It's been great to use for outings with the family. Thank you so much to the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me
this travel system to review!

Good travel system
July 18, 2019
I recently got the Maxi-Cosi Zelia-Max travel system. It's a beautiful color and I really liked the materials- the vegan leather was soft and the fabric seemed durable and easy to clean. Which is huge for baby spit-up! Overall, it's very pretty.

It took me approximately 20 minutes to put it together. It would have taken me less time but the instructions weren't 100% clear. I didn't read step 5 'Convert between carriage and seat' because I didn't need the carriage. However, I needed that step in order to learn that I had to clip the sides together to make a seat. The step can easily be overlooked if you don't need the carriage.

With this being my second baby, I've seen my fair share of strollers. This one was super nice in certain areas but appeared cheap in other areas. I LOVED the conversion option between a carriage and a seat for the stroller. Not many strollers out there offed that perk so it's a great option! The handle bar extension took two hands to push down/pull up and it also didn't have a great cup holder. The undercarriage has decent room but not enough to fit a diaper bag. Not a deal breaker since most strollers don't have that much space underneath anyways. These aren't deal-breakers to me, so I thought the stroller was great.

The car seat was plush and SO incredibly light! I received it with a worn spot on the car seat (like something had rubbed up against it in the shipping process), so that was disappointing, but I am sure it is easily correctable with the company. It was easy to install in the car and easy to put the baby in the car and feel safe.

Overall, it's a great option for a stroller travel system.

I was given this travel system to try as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel.

Lightweight and Versatile but Needs Improvement
July 17, 2019
Many thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for giving us a chance to test out this travel system. We loved how lightweight all the parts were, which made for easy lifting. What was great was that most adjustments could be made with the push or click of a button and that we were able to put the stroller together in less than 10 minutes. We had some mild annoyances: the stroller couldn't be folded with one hand, there was only one cup holder and no child tray.

The car-seat was super plush and, in our opinion, the best part of this travel system. However, it does come with flaws. The lack of rethread harness in the car seat costs more time to change the straps to new slots. Keep in mind that this makes it THAT much easier to tighten and change the harness if needed without replacing the whole seat. Other major complaints: there isn't a recline angle indicator on the base so you've gotta use the red level line on the car seat to determine if the seat is level and there's only one routing method parents can use for seat belts when installing without the base. Essentially, this means, for us (and for frequent travelers), we needed lots of YouTube videos to figure out how to use this seat when we travel next month. We ended up contacting Maxi-Cosi about this. Thankfully, the LATCH installation was easy-peasy--just push-on lower LATCH connectors. The included stroller adapters weren't that intuitive but I'm glad they come with the system.

Overall, if you're looking for a plush, versatile, and lightweight system that's easy to assemble and adjust, the Zelia is a great bet; BUT if you're looking for a system that's more intuitive and comes with more convenient features--this won't be your choice. Good carseat but the stroller needs more work.

Good Travel System
July 17, 2019
I am a second time mom with a newborn baby girl and a toddler. I was interested in a travel system this time around because I wanted to make my life easier when going out with both my kids. Since my son is already sitting in a front facing booster seat, I needed an infant car seat and a versatile stroller. I was given this Travel System to try as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel.

When the large box arrived my husband was able to assemble the travel system within minutes. My first observation was the material and fabric are high quality and feel soft. But what I loved most about the whole system is how lightweight every component is. My baby girl can sit comfortably in her cushy car seat and I can easily place it on the base which stays put in my car. When removing the car seat all you have to do is press on the large button on the back and pull it out of the base. If we are going on a day trip what I like best is that I don't have to keep my baby curled up in the car seat longer than the car ride, because I can attach the carriage and lay my baby flat in the bassinet facing me and it has a large canopy to protect her from the sun. As she gets older I can easily recline the carriage so she can sit facing me or looking toward the front. The other plus is the bottom of the stroller has a large basket to carry additional baby stuff, which comes in handy every time we go out, I can even fit my large diaper bag down there.

The only downside to this whole travel system is that it is too bulky, the frame is wide and the rear wheels are big, that it takes up most of my trunk space. Also, there is no cup holder or caddy to place my cellphone or wallet.

Overall, this is a good travel system with various configurations, lightweight and maneuverable. Thank you weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this travel system to try and review.

Lightweight infant seat and convenient travel system!
July 16, 2019
As a busy mom of three little ones, including an infant, I definitely need a travel system that is light weight and easy to use...the Zelia Max 5-in-1 Travel System passes the test! First, the infant seat includes luxury fabric which can be removed and washed *(huge bonus). My infant doesn't love being in her car seat, but seemed very comfortable in the Mico Max 30 and less fussy than riding in other infant car seats. The seat is one of the lightest in the market, and since I am petite and have other kiddos to manage this is a must have! The canopy is nice sized, but in very sunny weather is a bit sheer so sun does still come through. The infant seat and base were relatively easy to install, but the base could benefit from a guide for leveling to ensure the safest install.

Next, the stroller is a very smooth ride and also includes luxury materials and finishes. The basket below is ample in size and can hold up to 10 lbs. We especially love that the stroller seat can be converted to a carriage! Most other stroller systems require a completely different additional seat to use as a carriage (with, of course, additional cost)! Love that this is an included configuration! The stroller is pretty easy to maneuver and fold. The material on the stroller seat is also washable!

Overall, I recommend this travel system but do want to include a couple of cons that were noted. The release on the infant seat when taking it out of the car seemed to stick (not sure if it will get better with time). It takes two hands to yank up the handle, which ends up being a very bumpy ride for my little one. In addition, the release for the infant seat when attached to the stroller also seemed to stick. It's good that both are secure, but seemed to be a bit more difficult to release than they should be. Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for providing me with this travel system to test in exchange for my honest opinion!

A solid travel system with some big flaws
July 16, 2019
This travel system looks great & has a sleek aesthetic. It glides smoothly & is highly versatile. However, in terms of function, it's hit or miss.

CAR SEAT: Love the extra safety features & ability to be used without the base for travel on planes/Lyft rides, plus machine washable fabrics. However, it took 2 people 45 minutes to install the base with the manual, my car's manual, YouTube, & trying both LATCH & the belt path. No matter how we tightened it, the belt path method allowed the seat to move upward significantly. Ultimately we used LATCH, but it still wiggles more than I'd like. Although we triple-checked the instructions, I definitely feel like it needs to be checked by a pro!

STROLLER FRAME: Also has pros & cons. It comes with great storage space & is still compact & lightweight-a MUST for my tiny hatchback! It's easy to fold & carry, though it requires two hands initially, & I love that it stands up by itself. However, when it stands, the handlebar rests against the floor-not sanitary! Also, if you don't remove the parent cup before folding, it rubs against the tire-also gross.

STROLLER SEAT: pretty standard, but my baby loves sitting upright & looking around. The standout feature is the bumper bar, which swings open so I can easily unbuckle & lift out my baby. It makes me smile every time because it's such a genius idea!

Now the huge disappointment: As a petite woman with small hands, I can't remove the car seat from the stroller at all, which makes this mode unusable. You have to use both hands to very firmly grasp both sides of the seat, while simultaneously lifting up the weight of the seat AND your baby. I really wish there was an easier or one-handed mechanism that would let me lift the car seat by the handle, as I could probably overlook all of the other negatives of this system.

Overall, it's a solid travel system but has a few frustrating features that could be improved. Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending this to me to review!

Near perfect travel system
July 15, 2019
This Maxi Cosi travel system is a breeze to put together & use. My favorite configuration to use was in the traditional backward facing car seat style. The car seat was super easy to install in the car with the latch system and it also transferred over to the stroller quickly. My LO seemed super comfortable and snug in the car seat. My favorite feature of the stroller was the big canopy. The fabric is soft yet durable. The car seat is light & easy to carry. I received this product from the weeSpring Parent Panel.

Wish I Had This Sooner
July 15, 2019
I received the Zeila Max 5 -in-1 Modular Travel System through weeSpring Parent Panel, and I am so excited that I did. This stroller offers your little one so many travels options. Snap-in car seat option facing you, bassinet facing you or out and regular stroller seat facing you or out. With my first child I did not think that I needed a stroller that offered the bassinet as an option, but I found out that I DO need it. The bassinet option was incredibly nice, it was so great to be able to stroller around town with my newborn laid out flat rather than crunched up in his carseat. Stroller handles nicely, can easily be pushed one handed if needed. I live down a long gravel driveway and it went through the gravel driveway and grassy front yard without issue. The stroller can collapse with the bassinet/seat attached. It does not close very small however, and I found that the cup holder was in a terrible location once folded, it always hit one of the big back wheels. Despite it not folding very small, it did still fit in the trunk of my Nissan Altima. The stroller claims that it can hold a child up to 50lbs. I put my 2.5yr old in the stroller and she is only 33lbs, it did fit her, but it won't fit her all the way up to 50lbs. She was already pushing the height limit on this stroller it seems. She said it was comfortable, but it won't last long for a toddler. Conversions from carseat stroller, to bassinet to regular seat are all quick and easy. One sort of annoying thing was when going from bassinet to regular seat, there is buckle that you have to connect in order for the leg support portion of the seat to pop up, I found this buckle very hard to buckle together, the male and female ends barely reached. Car seat base was easy to put in the vehicles. As far as the car seat itself goes, I do not like how thick the shoulder pad straps are. They are removable but then you are left with a strap with no padding at all. Overall, the pros on this far out weigh the cons.

Zelia 5-in-1 travel system
July 15, 2019
I received this travel system from the WeeSpring Parent Panel. What a super cool travel system! I love that the stroller base easily folds into something manageable. My favorite configuration was using the bassinet in rear facing on the stroller base. It's super cool that you can also use the bassinet in forward facing too!! Using the infant seat on the stroller cuts down on trunk space, but I have a special place in my heart for that dreamy bassinet! The car seat was super easy to install using the LATCH system and the infant seat easily clicks into the base. I had minor difficulty removing the infant seat from the base. To attach the car seat to the stroller, you need two extra clips which are provided but it was pretty simple. My 2 month old loved riding in the bassinet as she isn't a fan of the car seat yet!! I seriously loved the bassinet! The extra features like the vegan leather handle and cup holder take this stroller over the top. It's very luxurious. The only thing I can remark poorly on is the size of the stroller base. It folds nicely, however, when assembled it is quite large!
