Graco Vie4 Lightweight Stroller Review
We needed a new lightweight baby stroller and after shopping around for a while decided to buy the Graco Vie4. It was the lightest and most agile of the few strollers we looked at but still had the room we needed for our little one. Graco is also a name we can trust so that factored into our decision. We already have one of their highchairs and swings, so the stroller was almost a no brainer.
There are quite a few things I like about it. The basket is very large for a stroller of this size and it can hold everything we need when we venture out. It handles like a dream and it looks even better in person than in the pictures. When I took it out of the box I was able to put it together in around 20 minutes and I’m not a handy person. I didn’t even need my husband to help.
I also like that there are 2 coffee cup holders and the baby’s tray can easily hold a sippy cup. The seat is very comfortable and it reclines fully for sleeping. The safety harness straps very easily with push buttons and can be used as either a 3 or 5 point setup (though we always use the 5).

The adjustable handle is nice because my husband is much taller and likes the handle quite a bit higher. Finally, it folds very compactly with only one hand (just as the description states). This is a nice feature and something you don’t really appreciate until you do it.
There are a couple of things I don’t like about the Vie4 though. The sun canopy doesn’t seem to have a lot of coverage and it gets in the way when folding up the stroller. I also wish there were some loops on the canopy to hang toys like the other strollers I looked at. This is a good way to keep your child occupied on longer walks. One other thing is very minor but to me, it stands out. The buttons are red but should be either a pink or brown to match the fabric.
Overall I like the Graco Vie4. It’s a great choice for anyone looking for a lightweight stroller but there are just a couple of improvements that could make it perfect. It’s still recommended and you should be able to find a good price if you look around enough. I found it online for $20 cheaper than our local store had it.
