The Fusio is the latest pushchair offering from Graco, boasting a reversible seat cleverly designed to allow your baby to face you at all times.
This model is a travel system – meaning it can be used either as a pram, pushchair or with a child car seat – and is suitable for use from birth to three years (or 15kg). It has a ‘One-Click’ fixing mechanism designed to allow you to switch between functions quickly and easily.
The Graco Fusio will be in Babies R Us from January 2011.

Graco Fusio first impressions
Pushchairs with reversible seats aren’t that unusual – we’ve tested more than 50 of them in the Which? test lab, and 18 of them were impressive enough to be awarded a Which? Best Buy status.
On first impressions though, this one is particularly easy to use, mainly due to the concertina design of the seat unit – so instead of trying to line up both sides, you can attach one side and then stretch the seat over to the other side to attach the other side.
Find out how reversible models from Mamas and Papas, Bugaboo, Babystyle, Mothercare and more were rated by our lab and parent testers in our pushchairs review, where we’ll be fully reviewing the Fusio in 2011.
Our parent testers often comment that it can be a bit of a struggle folding and unfolding a pushchair, especially with a baby in one arm. In an effort to overcome this, the Fusio uses colour coding to simplify the process – but we still found it a little tricky to fold at first, though ok once we got the hang of it.
The pushchair costs £299.99 and comes with a raincover, newborn liner, footmuff and apron. To turn it into a travel system you’ll need to buy the compatible Graco Logico car seat for around £100 – see our car seat reviews to see how well it fared in our crash tests.
Travel system or pushchair?
Travel systems like this model from Graco encapsulate all your baby transport needs in one product – but they’re more expensive than a straightforward stroller.
