The New TwinRoo+ Delivers!

The new TwinRoo+ has arrived with terrific upgrades and new functionality. This unique frame stroller has been designed with thoughtfulness to makes strolling with two little ones easier and less stressful.

What’s unique about this frame stroller for infant car seats? Well, namely, the infant car seats can be arranged in opposite directions or facing the same way. This allows for complete access to your twins without having to wrestle with the stroller handle or the other car seat getting in your way.

Parents who’ve used the TwinRoo have raved about the ease of use and practicality of this zippy stroller. They also love the extra large basket and the abundant cup holder that is positioned lower than the infants themselves. This prevents anything in the beverage holder from spilling, heaven forbid!

Compatible with the following infant car seats:
Graco® SnugRide® Click Connect™ 35
Graco® SnugRide® Click Connect™ 40
Britax® B-Safe
BOB® B-Safe
UPPAbaby® MESA

The TwinRoo+ retails for $129.99 and the car seat adapters are sold separately for $19.99.

Fatures include:

– Unique side mount gives you easy access without stroller handle getting in your way
– Small wheel-base provides easy handling and super maneuverability
– Features a one-hand fold, front-wheel suspension, swivel wheel locks, rear brakes, and large basket
– Includes organizer with 4 cup holders for bottles or beverages
– Click-in design, compatible with select infant car seats

Joovy ‘Jingle’ Gift Guide 2014

joovyjingle-header-01

We’ve got some ‘jingle’ for your loved ones this holiday season. Here are the hottest and hippest gift ideas from Joovy, guaranteed to bring holiday smiles. With the help of Santa himself, we’ve curated a list that includes something for everyone on your list. And, in the event you need personal shopping recommendations, our elves are eager to help at 877-456-5049. Give us a call!

We all have someone on our list who ‘has everything.’  No worries, we’ve got you covered this season! For this well equipped person, consider the Joovy MoonRoomIt’s a playard from out of this world! Fun, geometric design with loads of space, this playard gives a new dimension to the old standby. Made of high quality materials, the MoonRoom offers FUN & FUNCTIONALITY!

Santa’s tip: Dads have been known to love this far-out piece of baby gear!

Baby’s first vehicle should memorable and Santa suggests a tricycle that grows with your child.  The Joovy Tricycoo  is top of his list for first wheel presents this holiday season! The Tricycoo is simple and perfect for very young babies. Your child does not need to steer, pedal or balance on their own in the beginning.  They simply enjoy the fun and independence of their first tricycle while you guide them with the parent push handle (removable).   When engaged, the parent push handle overrides the steering on the Tricycoo. The surround arms help them learn to balance and give you confidence that they won’t fall out.  The pedals can be easily ‘turned off’ until they are ready to ‘kid power’ the Tricycoo on their own. As they gain confidence, the Tricycoo surround arms and parent handle can be removed for independent tricycling fun!

Santa’s tip: Get yours early. They sold out last year!

Get your little one trailblazing in style. The Joovy Bicycoo balance bike gives them the confidence to take the first step in cycling. Lightweight aluminum frame is easy to control, pneumatic tires offer the smoothest ride and the internal drum brake teaches them how ‘real gear’ works.  What’s even cooler about the Bicycoo? It looks like a real bike!

Santa’s tip: Don’t forget the Noodle (helmet) below. Start with teaching safety early and create good habits for life!

Protect that little noggin with the Joovy Noodle! Introduce safety early and create good habits from day one.  The Noodle comes in six bold colors, has 14 air vents, integrated bug mesh and is designed for babies heads measuring 18.5″ – 20.5″.   Extended visor for maximum protection, nylon straps, pinch guard chin strap, and an adjustable fit dial.  It is a great looking helmet and we think kids will love being ‘safe’ while cycling and doing other outdoor activities.  Meets CPSC Standards.

Santa’s tip: Give a practical gift to each child on your list!

5 Ways to Use the Joovy Foocot

On your parenting journey, you’ll discover some pieces of gear are way overrated and some, you truly couldn’t live without.

Since I get the opportunity to review many manufacturer-supplied products at no cost, like the Joovy Foocot, I truly get to see some great products that I would have never known about, as well as some doozies that make me question how they got to market at all.

For our family, the Joovy Foocot has been one of those accidental discoveries that, like a carpet cleaner when you have a sick kid, you may not realize you need it, but once you do, you’ll never want to go without.

00102_Greenie_Foocot

In our family, we have many uses for the Joovy Foocot, but these are our 5 favorite.

The Joovy Foocot easily becomes:

  1. The Sick Bed. Once of my children suffers from febrile seizures, so whenever he is sick, I want him close by. With the Joovy Foocot in two seconds, he has a separate, safe sleep space that is close enough for me to monitor him, but far enough apart so that he doesn’t overheat and we can still all sleep comfortably. Since a fitted crib mattress protector pad fits it perfectly, we put that on for added comfort and protection, should  a middle of the night mess occur.
  1. The Guest Bed. When my niece and nephew are visiting, no problem! With more kids than we have beds, the Joovy Foocot comes to the rescue. With a small footprint, it sets up  easily in one of the kids rooms and everyone is happy to be together.
  1. The Vacation Bed. When we take our annual trip to New Hampshire with our family friends, the youngest non-crib sleeping child gets to sleep at the foot of their parents bed in the Joovy Foocot. We couldn’t fit two extra twin mattress on the floor, as there wouldn’t be room, but with the Joovy Foocot, my family of four can bunk in one room easily and comfortably.
  1. The Travel Bed. Grandparents tend to think bed sharing with a toddler or preschooler will be fine; until they’ve experienced it firsthand and ended up with a foot in the stomach at 2 am. The Joovy Foocot is so easy to set up and is lightweight so grandma  can give junior his own safe and separate sleep space right next to hers in a flash.
  1. The Camping Bed. While we haven’t made it out of the backyard yet, during our practice runs at home, the kids have loved being off the floor of the tent and up on the Joovy Foocot. The comfortable and familiar sleep space makes tackling the outdoors a little easier for our little ones, and as a result, everyone gets a better rest.

The Joovy Foocot supports children up to 48 inches and 75 pounds.  For the price of renting a rolling cot for your hotel room during  a vacation, you can have a Joovy Foocot on hand to use anytime, anywhere.

Boob Baby Bottle: Lifesaver

“I have to say that the Boob bottles have been a lifesaver.  Super easy to use and clean, and Lukas transitions so well back and forth between the breast and the bottle, especially now that I’m back at work.  I’ve had to supplement his diet from the beginning with formula, and he goes back and forth thanks to the Boob without any issues.  I actually gave all my other bottles (Dr. Brown’s and Avent) away and bought more Boobs online!”

theBabaSling is a Great Travel Accessory

The Baba sling is super easy to put on, and Lukas loves how he can sit up in it and see everything.  I’ve also used it a few times at dinner so that he can cuddle and fall asleep and I can have two hands to eat.  It’s awesome!

The picture of theBabasling is in Rothenburg, Tauber, Germany.
