Kolcraft Cloud Plus Stroller Features

Extended Canopy

Three-tier, extended canopy for maximum UV protection. A peek-a-boo window so you can easily keep a watchful eye on your baby. 

Easy One-Hand Fold

Convenient one-hand and self-standing fold, perfect for car travel and vacations. Folded Dimensions: 18″ W x 12″ d x 34″ h. All-terrain wheels and front suspension for a smooth ride 

Reclining Seat 

Reclining seat offers 5-point safety restraint system and accommodates child up to 50 pounds and 40 inches tall. (Seat does not recline completely flat). Floor to Seat Distance: 14.5″ 

Roomy Storage 

The basket under the seat is 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. 

5-point harness system 

The five-point harness features padded shoulder straps for your baby. I liked this, as it provides both comfort and extra security. Finally, there is an included foot rest, so as your child grows, they won’t have to worry about dangling legs!

Multi-position reclining seat 

The stroller fully reclines back and has an adjustable footrest. The fully reclining back is perfect for newborns, eliminating the need to attach a compatible infant car seat, as one typically does for the first six months.  The seat position is adjustable with just one hand, squeezing a handle to move the seat from an almost flat sleeping position to upright.

Rear wheel brakes 

With tires designed to take on even the most rugged of terrains, our 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. You can lock the wheels with simple parking breaks located on the top rear of the hind wheels. Even though they aren’t as flip-flop friendly, you could still unlock them so easily even when wearing such shoes.

Lockable rear wheels 

The Kolcraft stroller has lockable wheels to aid stability of the stroller when unfolded.

3-tier extended canopy with peek-a-boo window 

Just like the previous model that some parents said was heavier, this model has a very large canopy with two panels. This ensures that children are not exposed to excessive sun rays. The canopy lets you adjust it with respect to the position of the sun. it also includes a large peek-a-boo window made of Velcro closure and for increased airflow and to check on your little one to make it an ideal canopy for this type of stroller. The 3 tiered design allows the wind to move quickly through the top of the canopy. Such a design increases the stability of the canopy and makes it cooler, fresher and more comfortable under the canopy.

Capacious Seat

The seat of this baby stroller is 14 inches wide, and 26inches from the back of the seat, right to the top of the canopy. The one-hand strap recline system is so efficient. However, just like what happens in other strap recline systems, you’ll have to use both hands to bring the seat back into position. Even in the most upright position, the seat still has some angle variations to enhance comfort. This baby stroller is only meant for kids who are at least 3 months old. 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. 

Removable child tray with dual cup holders 

The Kolcraft stroller has a built in removable child tray with dual cup holders

Parent Organizer

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.

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’s a foot break and it has a one-step, push-on/push-off brake system, which is simple to use. But 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.

  • The fold and unfold is amazingly easy and can be done with just one hand.
  • The canopy is HUGE and fully shades my sun burn prone toddler
  • The suspension has been great on our terrible sidewalks
  • The basket is pretty spacious compared to an umbrella stroller
  • It’s a beautiful stroller.
  • The stroller may not collapse correctly.
  • The handle bar is not adjustable
