Willow Brook Travel System Review
You need a car seat and stroller that’s going to grow with your baby, so make sure to make the Willow Brook Travel System is your next purchase. You can purchase the Willow in one of three colors: Graphite Glacier, Navy Glacier, and Onyx Glacier. We’re reviewing the Onyx Glacier one today. The Willow comes with infant car seat, stroller and base — plus a parent cup holder and child tray. The entire system can be used birth to 50 pounds; however, the car seat holds a baby up to 30 lbs or 32”, whichever comes first. There are four ways to use the system: parent-facing infant car seat, forward-facing infant car seat, parent-facing toddler car seat, and forward-facing toddler car seat. You can install the car seat in your car with three easy steps: open, thread the seat belt & buckle, and click it closed. It has ClickTight technology that helps you install it smoothly and securely. The car seat’s fabrics can be machine washed and dried. The RightSize belt system provides adjustment points at the hips, shoulders and between the legs to help you find the perfect fit. The canopy is water-resistant and has a flip-down sunshade and it has a large storage basket. The Willow is lightweight and easy to carry. I love that the shoulder straps of the car seat are easy to adjust to the 4 different sizes and the clicktight installation makes installing it a sweat-free experience. The Willow folds and opens easily and I love that the cup holder can hold my Stanley cup. The large basket easily holds Riley’s diaper bag and the extended sun visor keeps Riley safe from sun from every angle. Plus, the snack tray is great as Riley loves to snack on the go. However, you can’t adjust the height of the handle which can be a pain for taller parents, the phone pocket is near the bottom and not easily reachable, and it has a double foot break which makes it hard to stop on the spot. Plus, the stroller doesn’t store very compactly and the car seat visor doesn’t go down far so it feels like your baby will be more exposed to sunlight.
Should I get it?
We enjoyed this travel system. I liked that the height limit was 32″ because Riley would be able to use it longer than his other infant carseat. Also, being able to hold my Stanley cup was a huge plus!
