Great lightweight stroller
on May 16, 2012
I bought this stroller to replace my Graco lightrider. I love it, I am so glad I decided to upgrade!
The Joovy Kooper has a HUGE canopy which is what drew me to it since the canopy on my former stroller was tiny. It's so big that I can barely see my kiddo from the front when I have it all the way open, which is perfect for protecting him from the windy weather where we live. It also has a big peek-a-boo window for you to see your kiddo easily when the canopy is open. I love that it folds up like an umbrella stroller so it's nice and compact, though don't expect it to fold up as tiny as your average umbrella stroller, it is much more sturdy so it folds up to an inbetween size of an umbrella stroller and a normal stroller. Another plus is that the wheels pop off with the push of a button to make it even more compact if you need. I love that it's compact size doesn't prevent it from having a recline feature, even better, you can recline it with one hand. The seat is nice and wide as well as tall, the five point harness is great and easy for me to unbuckle, but it isn't easy for my little escapee to figure out which is good. My son is 11 months and has plenty of room to grow into this seat, but the harness keeps him in place enough that I dont worry about him being too small for it either. The only downside is that there isn't a snack tray, and the parent compartments can only hold standard water bottles. I bought the Brica cup holder for my drink and the Brica snack pod for my son and now I don't really miss having a snack tray, it's actually nice that he doesn't have to stretch his neck over the tray to see. Though the wheels are plastic (which I didn't like about my old stroller), they don't ride like plastic wheels at all. This stroller rides so smooth even over the bumpier roads in our neighborhood.
All in all, I would definitely recommend this stroller for anyone looking for a sturdy, but leightweight stroller that folds up to a compact size.
