gogo Kidz Universal Carseat Travelmate

IMPORTANT! We are closed this week for Spring Break. No orders will ship until MONDAY April 21st when we return.

Note: This is not the Carseat Travelmate MINI, this is the Standard Travelmate with inline skate wheels. The Mini had several problems (strong smell of rubber, squeakiness of wheels), and I have decided to only stock the excellent Standard version instead. Yes, you will have to pay a little more, but it is well worth it when you are schlepping kids through airports...especially if you are a mom traveling alone with one or more children. Trust me...get the one that works.

The gogo Kidz Carseat Travelmate converts your carseat into a stroller. It is easier and more convenient to use than anything else on the market. A ratcheting quick-release strap allows the Travelmate to be attached and removed from car seats in just seconds. This product is a definite must-have for parents traveling with small children.

Compare two airplane trips with a 2-year-old and his carseat: The first trip was WITHOUT the gogo Kidz Carseat Travelmate. We dragged our giant but beloved Britax Marathon around, along with our other luggage, and it was a huge pain. My son was on my back in his baby carrier, so that part was fine, but we had to rent a $3.00 cart at least twice just to transport the carseat to the check-in counter. My hand hurt, my shoulders hurt, I hated it.

Next trip was WITH the gogo Kidz Carseat Travelmate. Instead of carrying the carseat, I attached the gogo Kidz Carseat Travelmate and suddenly I had a fantastic stroller/luggage cart. I threw my carry-on luggage into the now-portable car seat, and getting around the airport was a breeze. On the return trip we were loaded down with boxes, and I put them ALL into the car seat and rolled them right up to the check-in counter. It was unbelievably easy in comparison to our previous flight.

Be sure to check out the new Carseat Travel Bag as well. This protective wheeled bag works fantastically well with all carseats, even fits larger items such as strollers.

If you take your carseat on the plane, the Carseat Travelmate becomes even more useful. There is no need to remove it, you just put the handle down and use the seat belt (get an extender) to secure the carseat. Plus, if you need a stroller at your final destination, you can convert your carseat into a stroller for your trip and avoid bringing both carseat *and* stroller.

  • Wide wheels provide stability and steer beautifully.
  • Sturdy, soft 5" inline skate wheels with bearings provide an incredibly smooth ride.
  • Easily lifted into shuttles or trams
  • Weight limit is the same as car seat manufacturer standard.
  • Doesn't interfere with the airplane seat or the safety belt. You do not need to remove the Carseat Travelmate when you have your carseat installed in the airplane seat. I suggest that you ask the flight or gate attendant for the seat belt extender prior to attaching car seat on the plane. The seat belt buckle will connect in the middle of the back of the car seat, and it can be difficult to release the buckle at the end of the flight. Getting an extender will solve this problem.

GoGoBabyz GogoKidz Universal Carseat Travelmate with Wheels and Handle

Works for Dennis and Kimberly Quaid, and it can work for you too.

Will the Travelmate Fit My Car Seat?

First, the Travelmate does NOT fit infant carseats. The Travelmate only works with so-called "convertible" car seats that can be used past the infant stage, usually up to 45-80 pounds.

If you can carry it on your arm and click it into a base, it's an infant carseat. No dice. If it stays in the car, it's a convertible carseat. If you are due to travel soon, have an infant car seat and really wish you could use the Travelmate, my advice is to go ahead and get yourself a convertible carseat now. You can use it with even tiny babies, and a good one will last up to school age, so it's not like you aren't going to get your money's worth. Then you can use the Travelmate and easily travel with your carseat.

OK, so you have a convertible carseat. Great. Let's narrow this down further.

  1. Does your carseat have a seatbelt slot in back? You need a seatbelt slot in order to use the Travelmate.
  2. Is the back face of your carseat (the hard plastic part that contacts the seat) relatively flat in the middle, not curved or angled? You need the carseat's back to be flat in order to fit flush and secure against the flat face of the Travelmate and not wobble.
  3. Is the bottom of your carseat flat? There are two prongs on the bottom of the Travelmate that the carseat rests on, so the bottom shouldn't be curved or angled sharply. But this is not as important as the back face being flat.
  4. In general, you want the back of your carseat to be shaped like a letter "L" and have a seatbelt slot. That's it! See the video for details.
