  • Compact fold
  • Weighs less than most travel systems
Cons
  • Small storage basket
  • Small canopy
  • Handles not adjustable
Where to Buy
 

The Graco Mosaic stroller is a great alternative to a traditional travel system, reviewers say, because at just under 20 pounds, it's considerably lighter than most travel systems. A car seat is not included with the Mosaic, although it is compatible with all Graco infant car seats, and reviewers say attaching a car seat to this stroller is a breeze. The Graco Mosaic comes in a choice of six patterns, including a Mickey Mouse theme. The Mosaic folds compactly, using a three-dimensional fold that collapses the stroller to the ground without scratching or allowing the fabric to come in contact with the floor. Parents say the Mosaic is easy to steer and maneuver, and it's narrow enough to fit easily through most store aisles. There are a few features the Mosaic lacks: We found several complaints that the canopy and storage basket are small, the foot brake is problematic and the handles are not adjustable to suit parents of different heights.

ConsumerReports.org doesn't include the Graco Mosaic in its latest round of stroller testing, but "Baby Bargains," the baby-gear book written by consumer advocates Denise and Alan Fields, provides brief coverage of the Mosaic in its latest edition. StrollerReviews.net provides a detailed, individual product review of the Mosaic. We found dozens of owner-written reviews on Amazon.com, and additional consumer reviews can be found on Walmart.com and WindsorPeak.com, the online community for readers of "Baby Bargains."

3. Baby Bargains

The newest version of the popular baby-gear book provides thorough coverage of the Graco line of strollers, offering ratings for manufacturers but not individual models. Because Graco's line of strollers is so extensive, coverage of individual models is limited. The Graco Mosaic is discussed briefly; the authors note the three-dimensional fold, which allows the stroller to collapse without scraping the floor.

5. Windsorpeak.com

Fewer than 10 owners have commented on the Graco Mosaic on WindsorPeak.com, the publisher's online community for readers of the popular baby-gear book "Baby Bargains." Parents appreciate the compact fold, which is great for weekend getaways when extra trunk space is needed. Several readers say the storage basket is small, and the wheels and fabric do not wear well.
