You asked for it and we are delivering it: the new infant car seat adapters for the Joovy Zoom! These dandy attachments make the Zoom stroller functional from the first day baby comes home. The stroller can be used with a child up to 75 pounds! The Zoom Car Seat Adapter is available in three different models: one each for Chicco, Graco and Peg Perego infant seats. The Zoom 360 Car Seat Adapters use the car seat’s existing latching mechanism and simply “click” into place. This is the ideal balance of simplicity and security. Additionally, the Zoom’s compact fold works with the car seat adapter installed, making it a snap to use.
Make exercise a family outing earlier than ever before with the Zoom 360 and the new car seat adapters.

Are you getting ready to teach your child how to ride a bike this spring? The question at hand is: training wheels or balance bike??? I love talking to parents who are getting ready to teach their child this milestone activity and oftentimes I ask, training wheels or balance bike?
Many parents have not heard of balance bikes or how this simplifies the learning. This simple bike without any pedals looks funny to parents who grew up with the security of training wheels flanking the rear wheel of their ‘big kid bike!’
Many parents agree that training wheels can provide a negative learning experience: we put them on, the child gets comfortable and then we take them away. Some children do fine, but for others, it is a negative learning experience and sometimes even traumatic.
Balance bikes, quite simply put, introduce the idea of balance before anything else. The concept is easy: children master balance first, build confidence and then they make the transition to the ‘big kid bike’ because all they need to learn is to pedal!
Parents who have used the balance bike with their little ones will proudly tell you how their kiddos took to the thing and learned to balance, go fast and discover this new found independence!
Why not? Let’s celebrate balance bikes by giving away a Joovy Bicycoo!
Texas M.I.L.K. a.k.a. as, Texas Moms I’d Like to Know, kicked off their inaugural music event at SxSW in Austin, Texas on Sunday, March 18, 2012. The TX M.I.L.K. MOMS ROCK! Showcase was a free, family-friendly day of music featuring an amazing lineup of mom musicians including The Bluebonnets (featuring Kathy Valentine, formerly of the Go-Go’s), Shelley King, Elizabeth McQueen, Amy Atchley, Karen Chisholm, and teen indie (and mom-managed) band, Charlie Belle. The event also featured a variety of mom-owned and mom-focused business. It was an amazing day to celebrate music and motherhood! Joovy was delighted to donate an Orangie Groove and Orangie Nook to celebrate the day!
The “minimum age” requirement on our front seats has changed from 6+ months to 3+ months. This new age grading applies to all of the strollers in the Joovy line with the exception of the Cocoons. The Cocoon and CocoonX2 remain at the 6+ months age grading.
This is important news as this allows for younger infants to sit in the front seats of our strollers on their own.
