Joovy Scooter Stroller

The Joovy Scooter Stroller is a lightweight umbrella stroller that comes with all the highly desired features but at a low cost. With a 55 lb weight limit, this stroller has long term use from newborn on up. The extra large and easily accessible storage basket is a huge selling point for the Joovy Scooter. Who does not love having more space to store all those baby needs when out and about. It is large enough to store a diaper bag – wow!

The few downsides to the Joovy Scooter are that it is not super easy to fold (requires 2 hands) and unfold. When you look at how easy some strollers are to open and close this is an area that can be improved. It also does not fold very flat but if you consider that it is an umbrella stroller that can also be used as a travel stroller then you can’t expect something too tiny. Lastly, there is no snack tray for your baby which may or may not be an issue.

For $149 you only have to buy 1 stroller for your baby from birth on up. Once your baby is 3 months you can put your baby in the stroller laying flat without the car seat so it makes it even easier to use. Weighing only 18.5 lbs this is a super lightweight stroller to take in and out of the car for errands. Joovy, a US company, makes great products and this is definitely one of them.
