What Is a Travel System? 

A travel system is a versatile and convenient solution for parents on the move. It includes a car seat, stroller, and accessories, providing a seamless transition for your child from the car to their stroller.  

During the early months, the car seat attaches to the stroller frame, allowing easy movement without disturbing your baby. Once your little one reaches six months of age, they can start to use the stroller seat. 

While some parents choose to build their own travel system by selecting compatible products, opting for an all-in-one travel system, such as the Willow Brook Travel System, ensures streamlined functioning and aesthetics. 

The Willow Brook Travel System includes: 

  • Brook Stroller 
  • Willow Car Seat 
  • Aspen car seat base 
  • Parent Cup Holder 
  • Child Tray 

Willow Infant Car Seat 

THE SPECS: 

  • Child Weight Minimum: 4 lbs. 
  • Child Weight Maximum: 35 lbs. or 32” in height 
  • Car Seat Weight: 10.9 lbs. (without base) / 19.99 lbs. (with base)
  • Car Seat Dimensions: 26.6” L x 17.9" W x 25.85" H 

The rear-facing Willow Car Seat has a range of features that make every journey a breeze! 

To start, the seat’s RightSize system offers adjustable points at the hips, shoulders, and between the legs. These adjustments create a custom fit for your baby, ensuring optimal comfort and safety as they grow. 

The SpaceSaver Design does away with cramped back seats! This clever design ensures the car seat remains slim on the outside while offering ample room on the inside for your child to stretch out comfortably. 

Of course, safety is paramount, and the Willow car seat is thoroughly outfitted with safety features. It uses Britax’s patented SafeCell technology, which acts as a crumple zone and diverts crash energy away from your precious cargo. Additionally, the seat is side-impact tested and its ReboundReduce carry handle acts as a stability bar to reduce the movement of the car seat during a collision. 

Installing the car seat is super easy, thanks to the Aspen base, which is secured in three simple steps. See our video above for more details!

This car seat also comes with a few extra features we love, including an extendable canopy and removable (and machine washable) infant inserts and harness cushions.



Brook Baby Stroller  

STROLLER SPECS: 

  • Supports children up to 50 lbs. and up to 44” in height 
  • Stroller Weight: 22 lbs. 
  • Stroller Unfolded: 37" L x 23.5" W x 42" H 
  • Stroller Folded (frame only): 16 L x 23.5 W x 36 H 
  • Stroller Folded (with toddler seat): 21 L x 23.5 W x 39.5 H 

This fantastic stroller is designed to offer convenience, comfort, and style, making it the perfect companion for a day out! 

First up, let's talk about its 1-step, compact fold feature. With a single quick motion, you can close the stroller in seconds. No more struggling! The Brook simplifies things — especially when you're go, go, go and need to pack up quickly. The stroller is also self-standing, so it's nice and easy to store out of the way when not in use.

The stroller also boasts an ultra-lightweight frame, making it easy to maneuver and carry without any added strain. You also get an under-seat cargo basket that offers ample room to store your baby essentials and more.  

For protection, Britax includes a water-resistant UPF 50+ canopy complete with a flip-down sun visor! This ensures your growing one stays comfortable and shielded from harmful UV rays, wind, and light rain. 

Lastly, the reclining toddler seat not only allows your child to rest comfortably on the go but also features a no-rethread harness for added safety. Whether it's a quick nap or a relaxing stroll in the park, the adjustable seat and harness provide the perfect combination to keep your child snug and secure during every journey! 

 

Beyond the Basics 

The Willow Brook Travel System comes in two sleek colours to suit your style — Onyx Glacier (all black) or Graphite Glacier (silver and black). 

We also love that both the toddler seat and infant car seat can be positioned in parent-facing and world-facing modes, allowing flexibility that suits your baby's preferences. Even better, the stroller can fold with the toddler seat in either position!

Outfitted with SafeWash Performance Fabric, cleaning is easy peasy, with the cushioning designed for tossing in your washer and dryer. Additionally, the fabric is naturally flame-retardant with no added FR chemicals. 

If all that wasn’t enough, the Brook stroller includes a parent cup holder and a child tray to keep your essentials within reach while on the go. Often, these accessories are sold separately, so it’s a real bonus that they are included in the travel system. 

Final Thoughts 

Travel systems are practical and versatile investments that simplify your daily routine, provide a comfortable ride for your child, and add an element of convenience that any new parent will appreciate. 

The Willow Brook Travel System from Britax is an excellent and affordable companion for busy parents. With the Brook Baby Stroller, the Willow Car Seat, the Aspen car seat base, as well as a host of functional (and fashionable) features, you’ll ensure your baby's comfort and safety every step of the way!
