    Does anyone know anything about the Graco Cleo? Seen it, used or have one?

    Re: Graco Cleo

    I don't have any experiance with the Cleo, but I do have the IPO, which actually looks very similar to the one you are looking at, but much lower in price, I got mine for $55 on sale. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0010EITSA I'm very happy with it, it stants tall so my husband doesn't complain about his back if he's the one pushing, it has nice large wheels so it goes through rough ground easily, it lays back, has carry handle to carry it easily when it is folded up and also folds easily and compactly. it holds up to 50lbs. The only difference I can tell between the two is the cleo has a bar in front and the IPO doesn't. if you want on with the bar check our the Graco mosaic it has a bar. looks identical to the Cleo actually and I ususally sit it for around $100. Just thought I would let you know, you could save some money by going with the IPO or the Mosaic.

    The Ipo and Mosaic are Maclaren knockoffs, the Cleo is a Peg Perego P3/Inglesina Zippy knockoff...not to say knockoff in a bad way, but if you want to compare features, those are the strollers you need to be comparing to

    I saw the cleo in person at Goore's ...It is ok I guess, but I wouldn't spend that much money on a Graco stroller. Might as well spend $50 more and get a Peg.

    Wow, a lot of stuff to do to close it. I would go with a peg too. Actually am. I will be buying one in a couple weeks!

    Re: Graco Cleo

    I'm new here (wife's expecting in August). Anyone have thoughts on what Graco stroller folds up in the most compact size? We're getting a Safeseat and I don't have room in my Jeep for even a snugrider frame with the "add-a-trunk" installed behind the back seat (2001 Wrangler). I've played around with a Mosaic and it might fit but was wondereing if the Cleo is significantly bigger or smaller.

    Thanks

    If it is anything like the pliko, it will be slightly larger than the Mosaic.

    As a follow-up, I found folded dimensions for the Mosaic and Cleo stroller at the Graco European website(http://media.gracobaby.eu/catalogues...-catalogue.pdf). 45x40x99cm for the Cleo and 34x41x95cm for the Mosaic. FYI, both look to be too long (and deep) for the back of the Jeep folded.

    I bet the Maclaren Easy Traveller would fit... http://www.rosenberryrooms.com/339-m...y-traveler-str
