Evenflo Sibby Travel System Review
This travel system comes with Evenflo LiteMax 35 Infant Car Seat that can accommodate a baby from 4 to 35 pounds, and a base that we can keep installed in the car.
This infant car seat is super lightweight which makes it very easy to lift and carry with its ergonomic handle. The seat is nicely padded to provide maximum comfort for your newborn or infant. The stay-in-car LiteMax Base (6 lbs) was designed to fit in most cars currently available on the market.
The stroller itself has a maximum capacity of 50 pounds and can accommodate a child up to 5 years.
Evenflo Sibby Travel System really grows with the baby! And it adapts to growing family’s needs – if you have two children close in age, you can add a board for the older one that can already walk.
What’s really awesome is that the Ride-Along Board is included with the stroller!
Infant Car Seat
The LiteMax Infant Car Seat weighs 10 lbs, is rear facing and has a capacity of 4-35 lbs. The height limit is 17-32 inches. This car seat is pretty long, therefore it will grow with your infant and it’s suitable for taller babies. It will definitely serve you for a longer period of time.
Car seat base is very easy to install with the belt-lock and 2-position recline.
Transferring between the car base and the stroller is very easy and quick thanks to one secure click.
Besides, this infant car seat is super light and has the ergonomic handle, therefore you can easily carry your baby to and from the car. This is a big advantage, because you will be using infant car seat not only for your newborn, but also for a 6-month-old baby that weighs a little more 😉
I carried this infant car seat in the crook of my arm and didn’t feel any pain and my baby didn’t get bumped around. I love how easily I can move around with this car seat.
It features full canopy and infant head support to provide comfy and safe ride for the little one.
The buckles in the car seat might feel a little hard to open at the beginning, but they loosen up over time. The straps can be adjusted as the baby grows: the crotch strap adjusts at the bottom, the shoulder straps adjust in the back and the belly strap adjust under the seat padding.
Everything is also very clearly described in the manual so just follow the steps and it will be super easy!
The canopy on the LiteMax infant car seat isn’t the biggest one, but when we attach the car seat into the stroller and use two sunshades the baby is fully covered and protected from the sun, wind and rain! I love this double protection 🙂
The car seat is backward facing, therefore we can keep an eye on our precious cargo during the stroll.
|Evenflo LiteMax Infant Car Seat can be bought separately in many different color versions. Check it out >>here<<|
It can accommodate child up to 50 lbs/ 38 in/ 5 years (whatever comes first). This regular seat has multi-position recline and it is facing forward so the baby can watch surroundings. There is a strap with a clip that we need to pull or push to adjust the seat angle. It can be locked in any position. It’s super easy to lower and raise the seat.
The seat is also equipped with an adjustable foot rest that offers 3 different positions. We can adjust it as the baby grows, for the most comfortable strolling.
For napping we can lift the foot rest all the way up and when the baby is older and doesn’t need it any more, we can lower it all the way down and it doesn’t get in the way of older kids or bigger kids with longer legs.
With fully recline seat and flat leg rest we can have a perfect space for changing a diaper!
There is also 5-point harness which is very well made. At first straps might seem hard to use, but they are just sturdy. They hold the baby securely in the middle and prevent baby from slumping to one side.
The seat fabric is very easy to clean with wet cloth – thank God, because there’s always something that spills out. With two kids it’s more than guaranteed. 🙂
It can be a great solution, instead of having a double stroller. No more struggling with loading bulky and heavy stroller into the car trunk, no more problems with getting through doorways and elevators!
If you don’t use the board you can fold it away or detach it and it won’t get in your way during strolling. The board can accommodate a child up to 50 lbs so it’s perfect for toddlers and preschoolers. If your child can already walk, but gets tired on long distances or day trips he can just hop on the board and his little legs can rest a little bit.
Children can ride on the board facing forward or backward and during riding the child should hold on to the handles. This ride-along board is great option for older sibling to hop on when they get tired of walking and need a little break.
Sibby Travel System has dual front wheel design and oversized rear wheels. The front wheels swivel for better agility. Thanks to new Cruiser Tires your child will have a comfy and smooth ride while you will be pushing the stroller effortlessly!
The wheels are plastic therefore they works best on flat surfaces. This is a perfect stroller for going over city streets, pavement, running errands and shopping at the mall.
This cheap stroller with car seat has double action brakes, the pedals are placed next to rear wheels. They are easy to push and lift, even in flip flops and high heels.
There is a 3-panel extendable canopy that provides nice coverage, up to baby’s hips or knees. There is no peek-a-boo window, which is the biggest downsize I could find about this stroller.
However, when the seat is fully recline, there is a mesh window above baby’s head. It’s great for air-flow, but also we can take a look on the sleeping little one if we bend a little bit.
Evenflo Sibby Travel System has two ergonomic handles, which is very common solution in lightweight strollers.
I’m a fan of single handlebar, but these handles are surprisingly easy and comfortable to push even during all-day trips! I guess this is because of its shape, which is more comfortable than the horizontal shaped handles.
Maneuverability and ease of use
I was wowed with this stroller maneuverability! It is very easy to control and turn. Even with my 1-year-old son in the toddler seat and 3-year-old daughter on the ride-along board I made tight turns almost effortlessly. Turning radius is super small!
Sibby steers better than many other lightweight and even full-sized strollers! I couldn’t believe how smoothly it glides!
This cheap stroller with car seat is very easy and convenient to use. The infant car seat fits in the base and the stroller well and clicks in securely. It’s also very easy to remove the car seat from the base and stroller frame. Transition from the car, stroller and home is simple and quick. Everything clicks perfectly.
Moreover, Evenflo Sibby Travel System is lightweight and easy to operate, yet remains very sturdy and balanced.
This travel system has large storage basket under the seat. I didn’t have any problems with fitting my large diaper bag into it. Even some snack, drinks and a blanket fitted in at the same time!
Seriously, it is one of the biggest basket I’ve ever seen, especially on a lightweight stroller! And it’s easy accessible from the back and front (with the foot rest lifted up).
Weight, size, folding
This travel system has actually a weight of an umbrella stroller! The stroller weighs only 13 lbs which makes it easy to lift and carry.
We left this stroller at grandparents for vacations. They live on the third floor and never have any problems with carrying folded Sibby down the stairs (even with one hand!). The compact size and small weight are also very convenient for travel.
This travel system is very easy to fold which simplifies storage and transportation. We just need to pull the strap hidden under the seat fabrics and the stroller will fold down. Folded Sibby Travel System takes up really small space thanks to slim profile and fits into the car trunk with no problem. Besides, it stands up when folded!
It took me literally few minutes to put all together. Actually I just had to put the wheels on, that’s it! Everything clicks perfectly which you can hear and see, so you can be sure it’s done correctly. Installing the base and attaching the infant car seat is also very simple or well described in the manual.
Evenflo Sibby Travel System not only comes with the Ride-Along Board for the second child, but also includes parent cup holder. It adjusts to the size of the beverage which makes it perfect for bottles, cups and cans! Remember to take it off when folding the stroller.
Really not every stroller comes with these extra accessories, especially for such a low price!

It grows with the baby and the whole family. You can start using it since birth with the backward facing infant car seat. Then, when the baby can sit upright and holds its head straight, we can switch to regular seat.
It’s really great that everything is included with one stroller. You don’t have to buy another piece of baby gear when your child gets older – with Evenflo Sibby Travel System you just change the seat! This stroller will definitely serve you for couple of years.
And when your family gets bigger, you don’t need to buy new stroller or a bulky double stroller. You can make this travel system to accommodate two kids! The older child (toddler or preschooler) can ride on the board. How great is that?!
|This travel system is excellent single stroller, but offers also a smart solution for two children. When you’re on the go with two kids, you need a lightweight stroller that is easy to handle and maneuver. Sibby gives you all of that for really pocket-friendly price!|
This cheap stroller with car seat is a perfect choice for:
