Traveling with a toddler means juggling plenty of gear. Whether you buy your tot his own seat on the plane or not, you will probably need a car seat once you get to your destination. Maybe a booster seat, too. Not to mention a stroller for long walks, starting with the one from security to the terminal. The Sit 'n' Stroll from Triple Play functions as all three. A set of heavy-duty wheels extend s and lock s quickly into place and can handle all kinds of terrain. With the wheels retracted, it is a comfortable rear-facing car seat for infants up to 30 pounds or a cushy, forward-facing seat for children 1 or older who weigh 20 to 40 pounds. It has an easy-to-use five-point harness system, and it is approved by the Federal Aviation Administration for in-flight use (and is slim enough to fit the aisles of most commercial airplanes). Accessories such as a sunshade or a mesh bag can be purchased separately. The Sit 'n' Stroll costs about $200, is available online at beebuzzbright.com , strollerdepot.com , and babiesrus.com , and at Magic Beans (312 Harvard St., Brookline; 617-264-2326 ), Right Start (104 Worcester St., Natick; 508-650-1271 ), or mail order at Safe Beginnings ( 13 Alexander Road, Billerica; 978-670-7189).
