    Question Fisher Price Safe Voyage Stroller

    Does anyone have this? I found it online, and I'm interested in replacing my huge Graco Central Park Quattro Tour Stroller with it, but I can't find enough info anywhere to reassure me that it is actually smaller, and doesn't just look that way. All I can find is PACKAGE size, and not the stroller size. If anyone wants to share their experience w/ it or refer me somewhere w/ the info, I'd love it....I've searched and searched and searched.... and still can't find what I'm looking for.

    I agree with this. We bought one a few months ago and I like it a lot. (Haven't used it a ton, though, and mostly indoors - this IS Michigan, after all! )

    Does it fold up small? Would you say it's smaller than the graco full size ones?

    Re: Fisher Price Safe Voyage Stroller

    I'm not familiar with the Graco strollers. It folds up a little bigger than my Kolcraft literider (I think thats what it was called). I can put it in the back of my Ford Focus wagon with one end up against the back of the seat and the other against where the door closes. That's my measure of a "small enough" stroller, cause it leaves me a reasonable amount of cargo space compared to having to put the stroller in the other way.

    Re: Fisher Price Safe Voyage Stroller

    See, I told you I wasn't familiar with Graco strollers.

    This is the one I was thinking of - I have what I think it just the older model. http://www.toysrus.com/product/index...ductId=2624758

    That FP stroller...it's not good... discontinued, in fact. How about a Kolcraft Contours? (there's a few of them... 3 wheel, 4 wheel, lite...)

    guess that's why it's only 39.99 at albeebaby.com

    were these built off of one of the britax stroller model, the way the FPSV carseat was built off of the decathlon? it doesn't look like a preview, but maybe?

    Re: Fisher Price Safe Voyage Stroller

    Nah, it was just their attempt to make a bugaboo It just is crummy to push and has a teensy seat and a 33 lb weight limit, so it was unpopular the moment it hit the shelves (at $199).

    Re: Fisher Price Safe Voyage Stroller

    I thought they were cute too, and then I checked it out on strollerswap. It has a ridiculously low weight limit and the seat back is also very low. I don't know what fp was thinking that people would pay $200 for a stroller that basically is only good for a year At least with the bugaboo you can buy all the different seats and attachments that make it last longer.
    If it seems like I'm not making sense, it's probably just my phone

    Re: Fisher Price Safe Voyage Stroller

    I think we're talking about two different strollers now.

    This is the Fisher Price Safe Voyage stroller. It's made by Britax and, though I'm not familiar enough with Britax strollers to know for sure, I think it's based on a Britax stroller.

    http://www.albeebaby.com/fiprsavostin.html

    This is the Fisher Price Bugaboo knockoff - not related to Britax at all (to my knowledge).

    Re: Fisher Price Safe Voyage Stroller

    Is Andrea right? It *does* look like there was a mix-up in this thread. I am interested in the FPSV, but not if it is "not good" or "crummy." Also, does the FPSV recline?

    The FPSV stroller is great. It is smaller than big graco systems, but I suppose it is most comparable to the Graco Spree in size. It does everything I need it to do. I would call it a good mid-size with all the ammenities.

    Re: Fisher Price Safe Voyage Stroller

    I just got off the phone with Britax and here is some more tech info on the stroller:
    - stroller weight = 17 lbs
    - accommodates 6 months through 40 lbs.
    - one hand fold (I asked whether it was freestanding when folded, but the rep didn't know)
    - has an auto head barrier (don't know what this is)
    - dual rear brakes
    - all wheel suspension

    Does anyone know whether the Britax Companion seat fits on it?

    Also, I forgot to ask whether the seat fabric is removable and washable--anyone know?

    Thanks!

    Re: Fisher Price Safe Voyage Stroller

    I don't know whether the Companion fits on it (is the Companion to the FPSV infant seat as the MA/DC is to the FPSVD? If so ... ) or whether the fabric is removable. But it is NOT freestanding when folded.

    i thought she was referring to this (hence, the graco comparison): http://www.albeebaby.com/fisher-pric...rcus-dots.html

    this wasn't FPs rediculously expensive bugaboo knockoff, which i think was simply called the "infant to toddler stroller". that sure didn't stay on the market long, though...i remember seeing them in an advertisement and then seeing one in the store, checking out the weight limit and shaking my head. it was a shame, too, because i wanted one!


    eta: lol! didn't read all the comments before making this one, obviously.
