First Impressions

After unboxing these items, the assembly was easy and quick. The Inglesina Electa Bassinet is so luxurious and spacious, with beautiful, gender-neutral padding and a cooling ventilation control system. The stroller came with Car Seat Adapters, but the Bassinet also easily clicks into the stroller base (as well as its own simple 'Standup' frame). The bassinet also comes with a hood and easy-access cover (UPF50).

I loved the color - the overall stylish factor - and I couldn't get over how well everything worked together, bassinet to stroller or car seat to stroller, forward or parent-facing seat, an adjustable handle, a huge basket... and it's so lightweight! And the bassinet is simply gorgeous and so comfortable.


The Inglesina Electa Stroller is perfect for everyday use, sidewalk bumps, and theme parks, due to its shock-absorbing, foam wheels and a large storage basket underneath. It's a lightweight stroller that's effortless to push around. It makes smooth turns, and with one hand, you can fold it down or pop it open.

Folding, Unfolding, Storage & Lifting

This full-size stroller can be easily carried with just one hand thanks to its convenient carry on handle. The Electa stroller features a legendary one-handed opening and closing system. You can easily open and close it with just one hand and the seat attached; the folded stroller stands on its own and is car seat compatible. We have a small car and the stroller easily fits in the truck (or the backseat, when our trunk is full).

Comfort & Ease of Use

The five-point harness system was easy to figure out, and the shoulder pads are extremely comfortable and don't move - they won't fall off and get lost! The stroller is easy to use and turn. Plus my son was very comfortable in there. The seat can face the parent or the street, the high backrest adjusts to help your child comfortably sit up or lay down, and the cup holder sits lower on the base, leaving the height-adjustable (four options) leatherette handle free of anything extra. Also, some added bonuses, it comes with a rain cover and all of the fabric lining can be removed and is machine washable!

The bassinet is luxurious and comfortable. My son was instantly at home. It's so big that even at 10 months, he still technically fits inside it (and he's in the 90th percentile for height!). Though we stopped using it around six months, when he was becoming mobile. You really can't go wrong with the Inglesina Electa Stroller & Bassinet.


The stroller's five-point harness is very secure and easy to adjust. The comfort pads don't move or get in the way as some do (they're actually very comfy!), and the shoulder straps are easy to adjust as your child grows. The brake is simple, one side for 'stop' and one side for 'go', they hold securely, and are flipflop friendly! The bassinet doesn't have a harness system, but if you follow the rules (once your baby can roll over and sit up, you stop using a bassinet), you'll be just fine. The bassinet stand is very secure, and the fabric is extremely soft and breathable.

Final Thoughts

The Inglesina Electa Stroller & Bassinet is by far one of the best stroller and bassinet combos I've seen. The stroller is lightweight, compact, and tastefully sophisticated, the bassinet is spacious and chic... both are perfect for everyday use. I loved using them, and my son loved being in them.
