How it works

The Chicco Bravo Trio is more than a stroller or a car seat. It’s packaged together as a travel system. With it, you get the Chicco Key Fit 30 Infant Car Seat that can be turned into the stroller just by fitting it into the frame. The system consists of the stroller frame, car seat and base.

It is one of the most popular car seat stroller combinations on the market right now. It’s a mixture of ingenuity, style, and convenience which are defining attributes to all Chicco™ brand products. The resulting product is a high quality, all-in-one travel system that parents who are constantly on the move will love.

The Chicco Bravo Trio truly stands out and it is a work of innovation because of its industry-leading features. The Chicco stroller can easily be opened or folded up with one hand. Once folded, it becomes very compact for convenient storage and handling. The car seat itself has a few different configurations as well so it can be laid flat and reclined upward like a normal seat, with a few additional options in between.

The material of the seat is also what makes the Chicco Bravo Trio a great product. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing with its sleek designs and chic colors, the fabric is also very easy to clean. And the neutral but stylish colors, as well as the modern design, allow it to match well with all types of car interior fabrics or colors.

The Chicco Bravo Trio travel system is intended for infants between 4 and 30 lbs and up to 30 inches in height so it’s a great seat that parents can use for several years due to its versatility and durability.

The travel system fits children between 4 and 30 pounds who are under 30 inches tall. The stroller weighs 23 pounds by itself.
