The Chicco Keyfit Caddy Stroller Frame is not too expensive yet will prove to be useful during your child’s first year – especially if you are getting the Chicco Keyfit 30 infant seat that is compatible with it, which is one of the best choices when it comes to an infant car seat.
Is it a fair choice to put on your baby registry?

The Stroller Seat
Unlike other strollers, this Caddy doesn’t have a stroller seat for your child to sit on. It is only a frame that is meant to carry a Chicco Keyfit infant car seat.
With that, it is only usable as long as your child is still using their Chicco Keyfit infant car seat.
This stroller frame is designed to carry any Chicco Keyfit infant car seat.
One-Hand Open/Fold Mechanism
It is very easy to open and close the Chicco Keyfit caddy. You only need one hand to do it. And it’s an easy job!
Can It Stand Upright Alone?
It is worth noting that this caddy can stand upright when closed. Most parents would want it because aside from being a space-saver when stored upright, it is also more hygienic since most of its parts will not be touching the ground.
The Storage Area
The expandable basket is HUGE. It’s another awesome thing about this caddy since you can put a lot of stuff in the storage below.
The handle is adjustable so you can customize its height and angle according to your preference. A lot of parents want this feature since the one who will be pushing it can either be a tall daddy or a short mommy 🙂
The Parent Tray
This caddy has a parent tray with two cup holders – a feature that is very useful especially for parents that are always on the go. You even have a covered compartment for your keys in the middle.
There’s no child’s tray since the one who’ll be using this is an infant/young baby who’s riding an infant car seat. 🙂
There’s also no built-in stroller canopy. The canopy you will be using is the infant car seat canopy unless you get a separate rain cover for the caddy, which is quite hard to find nowadays.
Size And Weight
It is relatively lighter than most strollers.
Given that it is only a “bare aluminum frame” which has little bells and whistles (parent tray with cupholder, huge basket, adjustable handles), it easy to handle the weight which is 11.15 pounds.

Diameter of front and rear wheels: 6.25 inches

The wheels can sometimes get squeaky – especially when the basket is overloaded with HEAVY stuff and while maneuvering it on smooth surfaces like the mall.
Take note also that it cannot handle rough roads, terrains, and other rocky surfaces.

Cheapest Place To Buy
How long you can use this caddy is dependent on how long you can use the car seat you will attach to it, which is most of the time the Chicco Keyfit 30 infant seat. After your child has outgrown the car seat, there is no other use of this caddy unless you are having a second child.
It’s compact and lightweight – two most important things especially for the first few months of a mom who just had a C-section.
It’s useful for daily errands. While the expandable basket is huge, don’t expect to carry heavy stuff in there as the wheels can be flimsy with a heavy load. You can, however, put bulky but LIGHT stuff.
For short walks in the park, it’s also awesome that you can just grab this in an instant and still be able to hold your drinks in the parent tray and your diaper bag in the basket.
While it probably can only be used for an average of 1 year (again, dependent on your infant car seat), that’s like spending USD 8.25 per month for a stroller before you transition to another stroller that you can use until your child no longer needs them. Not bad if you come to think of it.
I highly suggest you check out the reviews of the parents who got it to further confirm your decision.
