Joovy Zoom 360 Ultralight Stroller Review

The Joovy Zoom 360 Ultralight is an updated version of the Zoom 360 that has been one of the best selling joggers on the market. It might not be as fancy as some other models, but has a lot of great features and is very budget-friendly. The swivel front wheel that can be locked straight, makes it a perfect option for jogging as well as everyday use.

The air-filled tires together with rear-wheel suspension can handle any terrain while providing a smooth ride. The maneuverability on Ultralight is one of the best! You can easily push ans steer it with one hand. The roomy seat is not very upright in the most upright position, but does have a deep recline suitable from 3 months and up to 75 lbs (highest weight limit for joggers). You can also use it from birth with a travel system.

There tons of storage including large easy-to-access basket, two mesh pockets in the seat, large mesh pocket in the back of the seat, and included parent organizer. Nice! While Zoom 360 Ultralight is lighter than their previous Zoom 360 model it still weighs almost 26 lbs which is an average weight for a jogging stroller. So, I think that ‘Ultralight’ part of the name is a little deceiving.

Joovy Groove Ultralight 2017/2018 Umbrella Stroller Review

joovy-groove-ultralight2017-25It’s not a secret that the Joovy Groove Ultralight is one of my favorite umbrella strollers. So, I was very pleased to see a new redesigned 2017/2018 model which is even better than the previous one.

While weighing only 15 lbs it features a very roomy seat with a tall canopy that can accommodate even the tallest toddler. The high weight limit of 55 lbs should last you till college. LOL.

The deep near-flat recline together with an adjustable leg rest offers plenty of stretch room and is suitable for a newborn. Great for long naps and quick diaper changes.

BTW, not many umbrella strollers have a flat recline, so it’s a BIG plus. If you decide put a newborn directly into the seat, I do recommend using an infant insert. There is even a hidden mesh in the leg rest for a newborn as an extra safety feature which will prevent a baby from sliding out of the seat. Keep in mind, there is no travel system option.

Joovy Groove Ultralight Umbrella Stroller Review

joovy-groove-ultralight14The Joovy has recently introduced a new stroller called Joovy Groove Ultralight which is a lighter version of a very popular Groove model. I don’t know how they did it, but Ultralight model is 5 lbs lighter than the original. While weighing only 12 lbs (hard to believe right?), it is full of great features like deep recline, large canopy, and compact fold.

The Goove Ultralight is one of a few umbrella strollers that has a 149 degree recline (which is very deep), that is great for long naps and on-the-fly diaper changes. To give your child even more stretching room they’ve included an adjustable leg rest.

Once the seat is recline, there is a large opening in the back that provides nice air circulation during hot summer day. When the weather gets chilly, you can cover it with the attached closure. The seat can accommodate a child from 3 months and up to 55 lbs. It does NOT take infant car seat.

There are plenty of storage! Aside from the medium size basket which is typical for an umbrella stroller, there is also a zipper pocket in the back of the canopy  two mesh pockets inside of the seat and a mesh bottle holder/mesh pocket for small items.

The tall parents will be happy to see tall ergonomically positioned handle bars located at 41″ from the ground. The fold is very easy and has an automatic lock. There is also a shoulder strap for easy transportation. And at 12 lbs it’s really a shoulder kind of stroller. What I really like about it that despite the light weight it is still a very sturdy stroller.

Joovy TooFold Stroller Review

joovy_toofold14Joovy TooFold is a luxury versatile stroller with a creative frame design and some unique features. It has unusually shaped seat that might look small, but in fact is very room and comfortable. The main features of TooFold is it’s BUILT-IN stand-in board that can hold a second older child. It can be quickly fold up when not used. How great is that? No attaching, no carrying board with you. Easy. Another great thing about this model is it’s ability to convert into a double inline stroller with the addition of the second seat. The main seat can accommodate a child from 3 months and up to 45 lbs while the second seat is designed for an older child from 6 months and up to 45 lbs.

Basically, it’s designed for everyday life like running errands, going the park, or grocery store. While technically it’s not an all-terrain stroller, the large 12″ air-filled rear wheels will go through any type of terrain unless you are trail walking. The front-wheel suspension helps to absorb the bumps.

I found the adjustable double handle very unique. It can not only adjust up and down, but also to the sides. You will love going shopping with TooFold because it has tons of storage. While the basket is a medium size, the included waterproof shopping bag is huge and can hold a lot of groceries. There are also two small pockets for small items.

I have a mixed feelings about this one. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because while it’s scored extra points for unique design, built-in board, lightweight, large wheels, and the double seat option, I was not impressed with the hard to access basket, mediocre canopy, second seat age limit, stability, bulkiness and a high price tag. It really depends on your lifestyle and matter of preferences. Are you ready to overlook all the cons because of the built-in board, double option, lightweight, and large wheels? If yes, I would say go for it!

Joovy 2014 Scooter Stroller Review

joovy_scooter_2014_13Joovy Scooter got a serious face lift this year. So serious that I wouldn’t call it Scooter anymore. LOL. There are a lot of differences between the old 2010 Scooter and the new 2014 Scooter. It went from being one of the cheapest Joovy single strollers to one of the most expensive. Are these upgrades worth the money? I think so. The new Scooter is full of luxury features and has a new sporty look.

It’s designed for busy parents that like going to the mall, grocery shopping, or run errands around town. The small sealed bearing wheels perform best on a flat surface, but can also tackle some mommy terrain like grass, gravel, or playground mulch. The maneuverability on Scooter is outstanding! You can easily push it with one hand even fully loaded. Storage is the name of the game in the new Scooter. Aside from a large easy to access basket that can fit a lot of stuff, it has two pockets inside of the seat for your child’s stuff, and two pockets in the back of the canopy for mommy stuff :). For me, the large basket is important bc moms love to shop. It’s our daily therapy session. LOL.

It also has a huge canopy that goes all the way down to the bumper bar providing full coverage. Other features that I really like are: adjustable handle bar, adjustable leg rest, all-wheel suspension, 5 point harness, and easy fold. The roomy seat with a removable seat liners has a deep recline and can accommodate a child from 3 months and up to 55 lbs. If you want to use it from birth, you can covert it into a travel system. The stroller weight is 20 lbs.

The stitched leather on the handle bar and the bumper bar add to expensive feel. The roomy seat is reversible and has a super soft insert that can be removed and washed.

Joovy Scooter Stroller Review

joovy_scooter1Joovy Scooter is an umbrella stroller that is designed for on-the-go parents who live in an urban environment. It is great for running errands, going to the mall or walking in the park as long as you stay on the flat surface. You will love going grocery shopping with this one because it has a huge basket and is only 21.5″ wide which makes it perfect for navigating narrow aisles of the store. Four hard rubber wheels with sealed bearings and all-wheel suspension make it very easy to maneuver while providing your child with a smooth ride.

Weighing 18.5 lbs, it is a little on a heavy side for an umbrella stroller, but has many features of a full size stroller like large canopy, roomy seat, one-hand recline, and adjustable leg rest. It can accommodate a child from 6 months and up to 55 lbs.

The Scooter is full of storage with two mesh pockets inside of the seat, HUGE basket, and a zipper pocket in the back of the canopy. One feature that puts it apart form the umbrella strollers is the ability to transform into a travel system. There is also a double option available in case you have twins :).

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.
