safety 1st Step and Go

SEAT

The Step and Go stroller seat is roomy and accommodates up to 50 lbs. It measures 12 1/2″ wide with a 19″ seat back and a measurement of 26″ from seat back to canopy. This is definitely a seat that your bigger and taller toddlers will fit in. The adjustable, padded, 5-point harness keeps your little one safely in the seatΒ but the harness buckle is easy for toddlers to master with just one push.

The leg rest is not adjustable but it is a long leg drop with a measurement of 12″. The deep recline is adjusted with a two-handed strap system but is not a flat recline.

CANOPY

The three panel canopy with additional pop-out sun visor is large for good sun protection and sports a mesh peek-a-boo window on top with cover.

HANDLE

The Step and Go’s handle is not adjustable but it is taller measuring 42″ from ground to handle which makes it good for taller and shorter parents.

BASKET

There is a large basket under the seat that is easy to access from the back for a large diaper bag or from the sides for loose baby essentials. We even found that it is easy to access with the seat fully reclined.

WHEELS

The stroller rolls on 8″ hard rubber wheels in the back and 7″ swivel wheels in front. The stroller is best on smooth surfaces but if you lock the front wheels straight, it tackles “mommy terrain” (grass, gravel and playground mulch) a bit better by giving the stroller extra stability and preventing it from getting caught up in every bump and hole. Individual brakes on the rear wheels lock the stroller into place and are easy to use.

FOLD/UNFOLD

The one-handed fold is easy to do with a strap in the seat but the unfold is what makes it the “Step and Go.” This innovative fold requires no hands and can be done with one foot. That’s right, this is a “one-foot unfold” and it’s super easy to to. Just step down on the pedal with your foot and the stroller pops open. The only thing you need to use your hand for is to adjust the baby tray back into place.

TRAVEL SYSTEM

The stroller travel system comes with the Safety 1st Onboard 35 infant car seat which is for babies 4-35 lbs and features side impact protection, a washable seat pad and large sun visor. The car seat works seamlessly with the stroller clicking into the seat with no additional adapters.

WRAP-UP

The Safety 1st Step and Go Travel System will be available in April 2015 retailing for $299. Overall, this travel system is budget-friendly, full of features and has one of the easiest unfolds that we’ve ever seen.

  1. I recently got one of these but can’t find a travel bag that fits it since it’s fairly large when closed. Does anyone know of one?

  2. Great review on this cool stroller, the one-foot unfold is definitely something that other stroller makers should pay attention to. Seems that everybody is putting the one hand fold it the seat now, I hope no hand opening is next.

  3. The one-fold is what makes this stroller unique! I how light it is, that it is a travel system, and it is very reasonably priced.

  4. I love the no hands needed to unfold the Safety 1st Step & Go Travel System. I granny nanny and having a step on method to unfold the stroller is awesome.

  5. I love the innovative fold which requires no hands and can be done with one foot…..sounds like a “no brainer” even for a grand parent!

  6. I like that it is roomy enough for taller kids, has a drink tray, and is super easy to fold. The price isn’t bad either, especially for both pieces!

  7. I LOOOVE this! I am expecting a baby in September. My only other child is 10 years old and I remember wrestling with her stroller years ago and what a pain it was. I am so looking forward to getting this!

  8. This looks like it would be a fabulous stroller for moms on the go, I really like the easy fold feature! Hope I can win it πŸ™‚

  9. I love the large basket. There’s always so much to carry around and being able to stick the whole diaper bag underneath is a huge plus.

  10. I love the unfold option just like everyone else. it’s just so easy and quick! I also really like that it will hold up to 50 lbs because my first child I pushed til she was about six and fifty lbs….so i’m not sure what we will be doing with the 2nd child that is currently a baby lol

  11. Love the one handed fold because most of the times, that’s all i have available for a second, just one hand! lol & love the sun canopy for hot sunny days in south florida πŸ™‚
    love this stroller!

  12. I love the toddler tray in front.Other stroller make that an accessory to purchase above and beyond the stroller package. Nice perk!

  13. Love the side-impact safety protection. Safety is most important factor of all! The other features are very nice, also. Such as the one-foot fold, roomy, adjustable, storage and all-terrain.

  14. I love that the canopy looks to cover more area to shield your little one & that it’s easy to fold &unfold. With kids it’s hard to take extra time fighting to open to pack up a stroller.

  15. So many great feature such as the large canopy prefect for sunny Arizona and the one- foot unfold,
    this would be prefect for my bundle of joy arriving in June 18th x

  16. My favorite feature is the seat height; love that it can be used for an infant with a car seat and also into toddler-hood!

  17. I just love the one foot fold and the large basket … My hands are always full so easy open close as well as lots of storage are great features !!

  18. My favorite feature is the One-Handed Fold. Makes it nice when you have little ones in one arm and a stroller to deal with!

  19. I love how versatile it is, and so convenient! I’m pregnant with my first baby, and this would be amazing to have!

  20. well I love the COLOR but other then that it looks very easy to FOLD. This is one of my biggest problems with my current strollers. looking like an idiot in a parking lot folding up strollers!

  21. Perfect for a grandmother like me with one foot fold. Older people are always looking to make taking care of our grandchildren easier. I am waiting for the arrival of my great granddaughter in May and this would be perfect.

  22. O the fold and unfold is amazzzing! I have no stroller for my baby so this would be heaven! Thank you for another chance to have a stroller!!

  23. Great looking travel system. Love the color and style shape….also what a great feature to use your foot to open it!!

  24. I love so many features about this stroller. I think it’s great that it has the roomier seat to accommodate toddlers better. Also I like the taller handle-more comfortable to push for us taller parents.

  25. I really love the feature that it is so easy to fold up. That was always such a hassle for me when I was a Mommy πŸ™‚ My daughter needs this badly πŸ™‚

  26. My favorite feature of this stroller is the large canopy! Great for keeping baby safe from sun, rain, wind and other weather elements! A must have for any mom!

  27. I love the coverage of the canopy with the extra pop out sun shade. Of course the easy fold and unfold is AMAZING!!!

  28. I love how easy it looks to use and that its a 5 point harness. I’m nesting now so this would be a first great item! πŸ™‚

  29. I’m loving the convenience features of the folding up and the expandable handle. As a first-time grandmother-to-be (June) this would be awesome for me to use with Baby Johnny that will be making his appearance.

  30. I love most things about it but the most unique is the foot step to unfold, that is really cool! I also love that it comes with a onboard.

  31. I would love to win this! I have my 3rd child on the way. And we had gotten rid of our travel system. Due in July!

  32. Hands down, the large canopy is a major plus. I have to keep my baby protected from this AZ heat and sun ☺.

  33. We have always loved our Safety 1st seats, but new baby and time for a new one. The new fold and unfold process looks great! That process always confuses my husband and I think he could figure this one out.
