Joovy Zoom 360 Stroller Review

joovy_zoom_360_1Joovy Zoom 360 is a sport stroller that can be used for jogging or all-terrain. Unlike many joggers with the permanently fixed front wheel, Zoom 360 has a swivel front wheel that can be locked straight making it great not only for sport use, but also for everyday activities.

The large air-filled tires and excellent rear-wheel suspension provide a very smooth ride even when the terrain gets rough. It is a very long stroller (50″) so while I would take it to the park, it’s not the best for going shopping, doctor office, or for public transit. The maneuverability on Zoom 360 is amazing, you can push it with one hand.

Parents love this stroller for great features like large canopy, huge basket, a lot of storage, and easy fold. It is can be used from 6 months and up to 75 lbs. If you want to use it from birth, you can convert it into a travel system by purchasing a car seat adapter.

Quinny Moodd Stroller Review

quinny_moodd1The Quinny Moodd is a modern luxury stroller that has a unique frame and seat design. It reminds me of a cool office chair with an egg-shaped seat. LOL. This stroller is definitely a head turner! I was lucky to test the Moodd by Britto model and in real life it looks like an amazing piece of art and not a stroller. The frame and the bumper bar are all covered with bright colorful design making it stand out from the crowd. :)

Aside from sleek design, it has a reversible seat, adjustable foot rest, telescoping handle bar, double parking brake, and one-hand recline. It has easy fold and one-touch AUTOMATIC unfolding! Very innovative and inspiring. The maneuverability on the Moodd is amazing. With 12″ rear wheels and 7″ front wheel, this buggy can easily handle grass, mulch or gravel with no problems.

The Moodd is a 3-in-1 travel system that can accommodate a child from birth and up to 50 lbs.  You can turn it into a travel system by removing the seat and replacing it with an infant car seat or turn it into a pram by replacing it with a carrycot/bassinet (sold separately).

Parents love Verve not only for its sleek and modern look, but also for the luxury features like adjustable handle bar, hand brake, floating canopy, and very large basket.

Phil and Teds Dot Stroller Review

phil_and_teds_dot1Phil and Teds Dot is one of the most compact inline strollers on the market. You can use it as a single or convert it into a double mode by purchasing a 2nd seat. This is an all-terrain stroller that rolls on 10″ air-filled wheels. Take it to the park, playground, or over the grass, it can tackle any kind of rough terrain. The Dot is great for active parents who like outdoors.

The main seat has a flat recline and can accommodate a child from birth and up to 44 lbs. It’s full of great features like adjustable handle bar, large basket, and easy one-hand fold. The Dot truly grows with your family. In single mode, you can use it as a travel system or a pram by purchasing a carrycot/bassinet. In double mode, you can use it as a travel system plus a seat for a toddler or two seats for two kids. All this goodness weighs 26 lbs which is an average weight for a inline stroller.

Despite all the great features I’ve listed, I gave this stroller 3 out of 5 stars because of the medium canopy size, inconvenient recline, lock of storage, and non-telescoping handle bar. But, my main issue is the easy to reach wheels in a double mode. A child can hurt himself by getting his hand into the wheel. This is not safe! Also, I think that the handle bar should telescope to provide more feet room instead of adjusting up and down.

BOB Revolution CE Stroller Review

bob_revolution_ceThis is one of my favorite strollers! BOB Revolution CE is a great for walking around the neighborhood, long walks in the park, and light jogging. This CE (City Edition) model is designed for active parents who like to walk more than run. This is NOT a power jogging stroller. If you are looking for a jogger, SE (Sport Edition) model would be a better choice.

I like to go for light jogging, but more often prefer to walk. We have a lot of trails near my house, so I put my baby Sophia in the stroller, grab phone, keys and my little Yorkie (in this order) and walk out of the house. Sophia usually falls asleep within first 10 min and I have some time to call my friends to catch up.

Since I always have my phone in one hand, I push the stroller and hold the leash with another. The stroller has to be easy-to-push and navigate in order for me to do it all at once. Well, the CE model is truly one handed stroller. I don’t recommend it for shopping because it is very wide (25.5″) and very long (51.5″). You will be constantly hitting display stands with the front wheel.

BOB Stroller Strides Fitness Stroller Review

bob_stroller_strides1BOB Stroller Strides Fitness model was released after BOB teamed up with a nationwide exercise program called Stroller Strides®. It is a very popular stroller-based fitness program designed for moms who want to get in shape while spending time with their kids outdoors (no babysitter!). It incorporates power walking, strength, toning, songs and activities. BOB Stroller Strides Fitness Stroller is based on a top selling BOB Revolution model.

And just like Revolution, it has 16″ tires and high-impact polymer wheels. Both strollers are identical, that is why you are not going to find separate reviews for this stroller. The only difference is when you order Fitness model, you will get a parent console ($30 if you buy it separately) and a fitness kit that includes two exercise tubes of different tension, a Stroller Strides exercise manual, and coupons for a week of free Stroller Strides classes. Oh, almost forgot! The most important feature of this stroller is it’s red color.
