Joovy Kooper Review

Joovy Kooper Buggy Stroller Review

Today's Review is for a Joovy Kooper Buggy Stroller in black! ($249.99)




The Kooper Buggy Stroller is a new addition to the already fabulous line-up of strollers they have over at Joovy. It was made to be a mixture between a euro style buggy and an umbrella stroller, and that mix equals one incredible, stylish stroller! Even if the looks alone was the only thing this stroller had going for it, I'd still be in love. But, lucky for us all, this amazing little stroller is functional as well as fashionable.

I have one in black, and I am just so excited to tell you about all the features I love about it! (That I'm sure you will love as well)

First off, this stroller was so amazingly easy to put together. Even for me. (Sometimes I'm not too mechanically inclined) With Calvin's first stroller, one of those huge, bulky things that go with the infant car seats, it took me an hour to put it together, there were so many little parts and the instructions didn't entirely make sense. Plus, I messed up quite a few times and had to backtrack. When I put this together, I barely needed instructions at all. It probably took me 10 minutes and I was good to go. And it only took me that long because Calvin was "helping" me put it together, lol.

Next thing I noticed, because I preceded to pick it up, is how wonderfully light it is. It only weighs 17.9 lbs! That's less than Calvin (who already weigh 20lbs, he's huge!) Ladies, I can lift this with one arm, and my only workout is picking Calvin up. :)

And the locking mechanism in the back is so easy to use and so sturdy. To lock the stroller open, just step on the red locking "button" in the middle. To unlock, lift up with your foot and then push down on the small side one. It folds up nice and small like an umbrella stroller. And the brakes are incredibly sturdy too. You can feel them lock into place, which is very nice.

To name off a few more features it has, (I could go on forever about every little detail if I don't stop myself, so I'll start listing):

  • Five-point harness to hold baby in place, along with 3 shoulder-height anchor points.
  • 1680D ultra premium fabric is very high quality, gorgeous, easy to clean, and still nice to touch.
  • Huge removable canopy that features a sun shade (I love this! I haven't seen this anywhere else)
  • Infinite position reclining seat that can be adjusted single-handedly.
  • In fact, anything on this stroller can be done single-handedly, I've used it plenty of times while holding Calvin!
  • It has 2 cup holders and a zipper pocket on the back
  • Deluxe foam handles (need I say more? They really are a nice feature)
  • Large, easy to get to storage basket
  • All aluminium frame (thus the amazing low weight of 17.9 lbs!)
  • 4 Quick Release Wheels
  • Front Suspension (makes for an oh-so-smooooth ride)

Plus, this stroller will turn on a dime. It moves freely and easily. I even went into Pier 1, which has very small "aisles" (you know, the 1 foot space between products), I was able to maneuver through there like none other! Moms everywhere were cursing me as I breezed past them with my amazing stroller, and they were forced to backtrack every 2 minutes or so. Okay, so no one was really cursing me, but I did get a couple of jealous glances my way. Hey, I'm not stopping you from getting one of these amazing strollers! All you have to do is enter this giveaway, or head on over there and buy one for yourself. Seriously, it may seem like a lot of money, but for what you're getting, a quality stroller that has all the wonderful features I mentioned, plus it can hold up to 50lbs, it is worth it. And it will last forever! (Not to mention I've seen a lot of strollers that aren't nearly as attractive as this one, that don't have as many features as the Kooper for a lot more) So head on over there and get one for yourself!

yay for extra entries!
1 - your button, my blog
1 - joovy button, my blog
1 - i *need* this. i have a double stroller - but i need a single one because sometimes i take just my toddler out on "adventures" and sometimes, it's just me and the baby when the toddler is in preschool. i have a horrible umbrella stroller now but it has no cup holder and no storage and with either child, both of those features are needed. and, the umbrella stroller is ridiculously hard to close so i have to leave it open in my minivan at all times. sad. i know.

(i have to check out the other ways to have extra entries)...

thanks, katie, for this amazing giveaway.

I entered the Joovy giveaway. I really would LOVE To win this as we are TTC this spring- and could use all the help we could get (this will be our first)

quitecontrary1977 said...

I need this because my baby's cheap umbrella stroller is half-broken. The canvas seat was cutting into her legs so I cut up an old sweater to use as padding and sewed a blanket over it as cover.It works, but the Joovy would be such an upgrade!

kagey10 said...

I can't use the stroller to much, but I would love to gift it to my sister. She has 4 kids and 1 is 2 and the other is 6 months. wow. yeah. We don't always get along but I would love to give her this and show her some support, more for the kids then anything else. they have older sisters that would take them out on long walks and those babies need some fresh air. it would be a great thing.

I entered using the entry form,
As an extra entry: I need a Joovy Kooper because #1 they are awesome! I actually have one but would love to have another one. I always keep mine (the red one) in the van because you never know when you need a stroller but I would love one for keeping in the garage. If I take the Joovy out of my van to use around the neighborhood, I often forget to put it back in the can and then get stuck without a stroller sometimes. Not fun!

I and one other person are helping them out with all they need and it would be great to give this to them as a gift.

thanks for this chance to win

i'm in need of a stroller that doesn't take 10 hours to get out of the trunk of my car...and that doesn't weigh 100 pounds! the only stroller i have for my daughter is the one that her infant car seat would snap into. very handy for when she was little, now it is just too big and bulky. i love this joovy kooper and i'm pretty sure it would be the perfect fit for my daughter and i...i love everything about this stroller!

I have another little one on the way and my older baby is now only 12 months. I love the caboose and I need it! I want it! I gotta have it!

pitaharmon said...

I LOVE the toy caboose. I bought my daughter a dolly stroller, and it was cheap and busted. She would adore that thing. I'm on my 4th and final baby, and I've never had a nice stroller. What an awesome prize.

I love the Joovy Big Caboose. I like that it elevates the rear seat so no one can't see!

Lori said...

I totally need the Joovy Kooper because we have beat my daughter's old stroller into the ground and now with my seven month old (he's 20 pounds, too so lightweight strollers are easier on the overworked arms!) he is in need of his own stroller!

I love the zoom in blue! I love the bright colors also, Great products!! Thanks!!!

joannaonthelake said...

My favorite item from Joovy is the Joovy Zoom. I have a beautiful 5 month old daughter and the Zoom would not be for everyday use, but rather for run along the lake where we live. It is perfect for my husband or I to use when we jog. But, the Joovy Kooper Buggy Stroller is what we desperately want and need for our everyday use. It is our dream stroller! Thank you for this groovy Joovy giveaway!

I have owned the same stroller for &...yes & years. Had it as part of a travel system with my first. I got a jogger, & bike trailor, and several other "wheels" for the girls. For that reason i have avoided getting ANOTHER stroller. now my youngest is 3.5...but really, i still need a stroller. I GAVE my stroller to a family at the zoo who arrived there with thier grandchildren, only to realize they left the jogger stroller back wheels at home. I looked at them, and the now aggitated children wanting to enter the zoo ( that has only wagon rentals) i said...take it. Take my stroller ( they had an infant too little to safely ride the wagon) i emptied my stroller & gave it to them.

i LOVE this stroller...a shade & large basket, modern smart design. I NEED THIS STROLLER.

This stroller is amazing! I brought the Baby Trend Expedition Jogger stroller in October 2009 and I had to return it, the front wheel came off almost with my baby in it. I had read review about this kind of thing happening but I didnt think it could happen to me. Brought the Joovy Kooper in brown, awesome stroller. I love this Stroller! I have not had a chance to use it yet but I bet its so worth the price!!! Definitely a must have!!!
