How do you use Phil and Teds cocoon?

I am not sure how to use Phil and Teds cocoon. I do know that it is a car seat made for infants as they grow into toddlers, but how does the cocoon come into play? Do you place your child inside of the cocoon, or are there other uses? Please help!

The Cocoon can be used in any position on top of the frame – whether facing outwards or backwards. It also protects children from rain and wind when travelling by car.


Do Phil and Teds strollers have seats with backs?

No, all Graco FastAction Strollers offer an optional backseat that reclines just like our infant carriers so the baby can enjoy an inclined lie-flat position without any of the drawbacks that you usually see with other strollers.

The Phil and Ted Stroller has an optional reclining backseat to provide your child with a comfortable lie-flat position.


What are Phil and Teds strollers like?

The rigidity is good for larger children, but this comes at the expense of manoeuvrability which can become problematic when navigating tight spaces or around family members on crowded sidewalks.

A rigid frame makes these Graco FastAction Umbrella Strollers perfect for keeping little ones in place while they’re having fun, but it does make them harder to push through small openings or turn tightly as compared to our more flexible models such as our LiteRider Models which have been designed specifically with these difficult situations in mind.

If you’re looking for a Graco stroller with more manoeuvrability, LiteRider Models are a perfect choice! They have a lightweight frame and come equipped with an easy one-step recline so smaller children can enjoy the ride too.

These models also offer increased flexibility as they boast 360° of rotating wheels, which makes them easier to push on any surface or turn tightly in small spaces.


How do you Open a Dash Stroller?

Builders of this stroller recommend opening the howler by following these steps:

Place one hand on either side of the howler’s top canopy bar and push up with your fingers to disengage the howler from the lower frame. You should feel a “pop” or another release as howler pops free.

To fold, first press in both handles (with hands) then rotate them down towards each other until they lock into place; pull fabric forward over handlebars while continuing to hold handles together. Push fabric under-seat area at back and around front wheel strut where it will be held securely when folded closed again.
