After considering the Peg Perego P3 Pliko (USED mind you wow $$$), the 3 wheeling Jeep, the Kolcraft Contours 4 wheeler (this came in very close second but only comes in orange and my husband vetoed that color outright) and the Gogo Babyz Urban I found myself going back to this one over and over. Finally we hit a store that carried it to give it a spin. My husband was sure he wouldn't like it, but after putting our 11 month old daughter in it for a test drive as well as messing with many of the other strollers there, we left the store with a Brownie Kooper and are extremely satisfied. Including the husband.
So here are the pros and cons of what we consider a spectacular find. If you want quick why we love it just shoot to the end!
LIGHT weight and folds very compact. Our (awesome) Graco system takes up the entire trunk area of the station wagon. We had it with us when we purchased the Kooper and so we had almost no room back there. So we put the Kooper in the backseat and it fit in between our 7 yo daughter and our 11 month old in her huge car seat.
Comfy with baby in mind. The seat doesn't let your kid slouch and is well padded but solid firmness for back support. I can't stand umbrella strollers on average because of how kids have to sit in them. Not a problem here.Read more ›
Everything I read was true: great canopy, 5 point harness w/swivel straps, more upright seat so your baby isn't slumped, easy to fold/open up, light weight, cup holders included, cool little pockets inside the seat to store baby's toys etc. However, the stroller I received only weight-beared on 3 of its 4 wheels. The front wheels are caster wheels which lock and unlock (no swivel vs. swivel option). One of the front wheels remained approximately 1/2 inch off the floor and didn't move - whether it was locked or unlocked, and irregardless of type of level floor surface I pushed the stroller on (tile vs. carpet vs. hardwood). The brakes also didn't "click" when activated, as the manual stated they should, so it left to question if they were properly engaged.
I returned this stroller and ordered a replacement, hoping it was just my dumb luck to get the one bum stroller of the bunch. My second replacement had the exact same problem, and the frame was shakey when locked into the open position. It didn't feel stable. Additionally, if you have a small baby like I do, the shoulder straps would not adjust short enough to hold him in the seat safely. The lap/hip straps did adjust to a secure fit, but the shoulder straps needed a 4th height setting (there are 3 height adjustment slots, in addition to strap length adjustment ability). My 11 month old is 27.5" and about 15.Read more ›
So, I bought the Joovy Kooper based on the reviews on Amazon and because I REALLY liked the look of it. The sturdy aluminum tubing frame, the 1680D material (I guess that means "sturdy"), the cool ergonomic foam handle bars, and the fabulous sun visor were all HUGE deciding factors for me deciding to purchase it; and it did not disappoint upon arrival. However, once I played with it for a day I found a few things that I realized I can't live without because my Bob has really spoiled me and have come to expect in any stroller.
I'm comparing this to my Bob, so I may be a little biased but here are the things I did and mostly didn't like about the Joovy Kooper:
1. Ergonomic Foam Handles. Now, don't get me wrong, I do love the cushioned handle bars, but because they don't adjust to height, they are just too low for my 6'3" husband. And a bit thick I might add.
2. Weight. If I was classifying this stroller I would say it is a mid-weight stroller. I guess I expected it to weigh less, but it was still quite heavy.
3. Bulky.Read more ›
