Graco Trax Jogger Review
Did you know that the first car seats for children were designed in the early ’30s?
Although they were eventually installed in the cars, their priority was not keeping the child safe. In fact, the original purpose of the car seat was to bring the child to the level of the front passenger seat so the parent that was driving could see the child much better; they were early and basic versions of the booster seats. The safety of the car seats became a priority much later. Back in 1962, Jean Ames created the first car seat that had one and only purpose.
To protect the child from injuries the car seat was designed so that the child faced the rear window and was fastened with a firm strap. This is actually very similar to modern day designs that we know today.
But let’s have a closer look at one of the best traveling systems on the market: The Trax Jogger by Graco. What does it contain? What are the specifics? What are the pros and cons? And is it a good purchase for you and your child?

The seat of the stroller features panels made out of mesh material. What are they for? Well, they inserted for the optimal comfort for your child. The mesh adds extra breathability when your child is reclined back on the seat, and they let not just the air to circulate, they help the drying of the seat to become much faster. Accidents like spilled bottle happen, but there’s no reason your child to lose comfort over a tiny accident. But what about the comfort for the parents that are actually in charge of the system?
Well, Graco got them covered as well. Like, for instance, the handlebar. Not only it’s adjustable to the height of the parent that’s actually in charge of the stroller, but it also has a nice and very practical tether that attaches on the parent’s wrist. It’s comfortable and practical at the same time, and it will really come in handy when the parents are jogging and controlling the stroller at the same time.
You can thank the front wheel for that, and the fact that this is a stroller with three wheels, not your standard four wheels. The front wheel is very capable to go through the different terrains, harrow street corners and pretty much everything that it much comes your way, without jeopardizing the comfort. But what about the fit of the child inside the system? Yes, the dimensions and the design that was implemented in the car seat and in the stroller suggest that the fit will be more than sufficient to accommodate your child with ease and comfort.
The width of the stroller is 25.5 inches, and the depth of the stroller reaches 40.25 inches. Just enough for a child to sit comfortably for a lengthily period of time. Hey, jogging requires time, effort and a lot of patience, and not that many children are willing to sit nice and quiet for an extended period of time. They’ll start fidgeting; they’ll get agitated if there’s not enough space in the stroller to move and well… You know what’s coming next. Thankfully the depth and the width are in line with the comfort and practicality so there will be none of that.
Just place your child in the stroller, put on your favorite running shoes, and go for it. But how it’s used is just as important as what it’s used for. The stroller, in particular, has a very practical and adjustable handlebar that offers easy strolling regardless of the terrain. The adjustability is applied to the height of that handlebar and it can be easily adjusted to the height of both of the parents. And if you decide that it’s done its job and you’re looking for a way to fold it and store it, you can do it in two separate ways. With and without the tires. Yes. You can remove the tires, and store the stroller with ease.
There’s a nice big basket underneath the seat that is more than capable of carrying all your belongings and the baby’s essentials as well. Everything from diapers, wet naps, bottles and foot for the baby. It can fit perfectly without any restrictions.
That’s all great. But what does the stroller contain, for you and your child to use. What is useful on that particular object? Well, the model has two separate treys. One for the parent and one for the child. The trey for the parent has two fantastic cup holders, while the baby’s trey has enough space to store snacks, toys and everything else, and it actually pivots nicely for convenient no-fuss use.
It will keep you and your child safe at all times. Oh, and this piece information doesn’t really fit in the versatility portion of this review, but why not… You can actually take your child to Disneyland with this item. Yup. The versatility even goes there. It meets all of the Disney requirements for safety and you can easily take your child to the happiest place on Earth.
