How it works
Safety is a number one priority, but who says it cannot be convenient as well? In 1984, the Safety 1st company was founded in the United States. They started out with the classic, “Baby on Board,” sign and continued to add more and more products for safety and convenience. They continue with the best selling sign to home equipment to hygiene and to strollers and car seats.
The Safety 1st Smooth Ride Travel System with onBoard 35 Infant Car Seat is one of the company’s products which includes safety and convenience. Families are traveling more and more every year. Having the equipment to keep up with that lifestyle has become an essential part of life today. The infant car seat snaps onto the stroller for convenience while keeping a sleeping baby safe and secure.
The stroller is intended for children up to fifty pounds. It is intended for children who can sit up on their own, which is why it is so convenient to have the travel system so infants can remain in their car seat, and snap onto the stroller so parents do not have to carry the baby or baby and car seat. For children with the ability to sit up on their own, the midpoint of the child’s head should be at or below the top of the stroller seat when they are in a seated position.
The Safety 1st Smooth Ride Stroller has a comfortable, plush fabric to ensure kids stay snug. The stroller’s seat can recline to allow the child to rest or even take a nap. The large canopy provides protection from the sun and other elements. As we know, kids are not always resting and they want to play and be entertained even more! The Smooth Ride Stroller has a tray for the child’s toys or snacks to help keep them happy and content while on the go!
The Smooth Ride Stroller is designed to be convenient and easy to use. It has a large canopy to shelter the child from the sun and elements. It has a visor that can be flipped out to assist parents in providing extra protection. One would think with a large canopy, it may block a parent’s view of their child, but not with the Safety 1st stroller. The canopy has a window so you can keep an eye on your bundle of joy enjoying the ride in the stroller while also providing more air circulation for your little one. If you are wondering how you will travel or go shopping with an infant car seat, stroller, diaper bag, and other items you pick up along the way, you don't need to worry with the Smooth Ride Travel System. The stroller had a large storage compartment, a tray for parents to keep their smaller items, and don’t forget the smaller tray for the child. Toys, sippy cups, snack containers all will work in order to keep the ride more enjoyable!
The Safety 1st Smooth Ride Travel System features the QuickClick to allow you to connect the onBoard 35 Infant Car Seat to the stroller. If the baby is still sleeping, no need to take the baby out of the car seat to go into the stroller, just a click and the seat is secured to the stroller and you are ready to roll! When used together, the canopy on the car seat and the stroller can come together to provide coverage and keep things darker for a sleeping baby.
Ease of Use
When you take the baby and infant car seat out of the vehicle, place the car seat facing the handlebar. The car seat will snap onto the child’s tray, and you are set to enjoy your day. When your day is done and you are ready to leave, release the car seat from the stroller in the same manner you do when removing it from the car. Now it is time to fold the stroller. All it takes is one hand! The Safety 1st stroller comes with a “lift to fold” handle cleverly located in the seat of the stroller. Just do as the name implies. Lift the handle and the stroller will fold up for easy transport. No more pushing buttons, twisting the lever, and pushing down on the stroller in an attempt to fold it!
The stroller has wheels made to assist in mobility. They are made to create a smooth ride and to maneuver in the direction you need to travel. Safety 1st has also taken measures to make it easy when you want to keep your stroller from moving. The Smooth Ride Stroller has brakes that can be used with just one flick. It is just one of the many safety features of this product!
As with anything, be sure to read your user’s manual for helpful instructions to get the maximum benefit from the Safety 1st Smooth Ride Travel System, and ensuring the child’s safety at all times.
The Smooth Ride stroller has a 5 point harness to keep babies safe as they ride. The stroller can be used as your child grows, and the harness can be adjusted to allow a safe and comfortable fit. The wheels of the stroller can be locked in place when the stroller is to remain still. This travel system is made to be convenient and easy to use but does not cut corners on providing a safe ride in and out of a vehicle.
The onBoard 35 Infant Car Seat comes with a base to secure to your vehicle, but it can be used without as well. This way Grandma can take the baby out for the day as well. The base of the car seat can be adjusted to five different levels to ensure a proper fit in different vehicles. The car seat is compatible for airplane use too. No need to postpone a trip anymore!
The Safety 1st Smooth Ride Travel System with onBoard 35 Infant Car Seat is a lightweight and easy to use system. The car seat comes complete with a base to secure to your vehicle.
