Joovy Zoom 360 Ultralight Stroller Features
With a virtually upright seat, your child will be able to get a better view from their stroller than ever before, getting to take in the smells, sights, and sounds of the exciting new world around them. The seats which are equipped with a 5-point harness, can easily recline to a nearly flat position by engaging the gray recline lever at the top of the seat. That said, though they can recline down far, Joovy does not recommend you place babies in the regular seat until they are about 6 months of age.
The seats have a removable bumper bar, which makes setting kids in or lifting them out easy-peasy, as well as an easy-to-clean rubber foot lining at the seat’s bottom to catch dirt, food crumbs, and playground. The seat is super easy to take out and put back in. Just press the two buttons on either side of the seat and then lift the seat out to remove it. When you want to put it back, it simply clicks in
With tires designed to function perfectly even in the most rugged of terrains, this running stroller is made to take on the great outdoors just as easily as it does your local neighborhood. They can handle all kinds of terrain, from hilly to grass to gravel. The front wheels offer suspension for a nice, smooth ride and can swivel or be stationary.
As much as your child will be engaged with the world around them, when they’re sitting in the stroller, they’ll also want the reassuring voice and face of Mom or Dad once in a while, and thanks to our fun “Peek-a-boo!” canopy opening, they can get exactly that. Canopy designed with additional sun visors can well protect your baby from UV radiation.
With the updated neoprene parent organizer feature, you can keep your cell phone, keys, and drink within secure and easy reach with the Joovy’s washable parent organizer for the stroller. The parent organizer has; two snug-fit cup holders, secure interior zipper pocket, Deep center pocket for the big stuff, five mesh pockets.
The stroller has an adjustable footrest that can suit different comforting leg positions for the child.
As far as am concerned, the 5-point harness is the most valuable accessory in the Stroll. The five-point harness consists of five straps – two at the shoulders, two at the hips, and one at the crotch that all connect together via a buckle release mechanism. On paper, the magnetic catch that connects the shoulder strap to the waist strap sounds ingenious, but in reality the pull on the magnet isn’t strong. So when you’re in a hurry and the straps unclip for the umpteenth time, it’s not clever. To be fair I imagine it’s easier with an agreeable newborn than a terrible toddler. Once fixed the harness is sturdy, the shoulder straps are well-padded and it’s quickly adjustable. Since running will result in your child being bounced around. The shoulder belts will keep them in place comfortably even when jogging, and the buckle is also comfortable against the child.
The basket under the seat is really big and capacious. It can easily accommodate large diaper bag and shopping bags. The seat is mounted high so you can fit big and long items in the basket and have easy access to them. The extra-large storage basket can be said to be a shopaholic’s dream feature for a stroller. The shopping basket is quite impressive in size. The fact that it has the space for a cabin sized luggage bag and yet integrated into the stroller’s easy fold. For extra storage there’s also a pocket at the back of the seat unit which is big enough to fit a kids game, laptop, phone, etc.
One Step Parking Break
Parents can say goodbye to scuffed and sore toes with the unique “one step brake”, designed for big boots, small shoes and is even flip-flop friendly! A simple step on, step off movement is all that’s needed to bring the stroller to a smooth stop. It has a foot break and it has a one-step, push-on/push-off brake system, which is simple to use. It does needs a firm push. And if, for whatever reason, you hang a nappy bag on the end of your buggy, you may find it harder to reach. But most importantly the brake works well.
