The Bumprider Goes to the Zoo!

Our Canadian friends are a hearty crew!  We love that this mom was so ready for flip flops that she braved the snow puddles on their recent outing to the Zoo!  What made the trip so easy and enjoyable?  Well, the Bumprider and her four year old daughter!

The cool thing about the Joovy Bumprider is that is fits virtually any stroller on the market!  Convert your single stroller to a tandem today.  Your kid just might think you’re the coolest parent on the planet!

Princess and a Horse Drawn Carriage at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital

“Thank you for helping our baby enjoy outings safely after her liver transplant. Last night her stroller transformed into a horse drawn carriage ride at a ball. Normally it lets her do many everyday things as well like the library, church, store, and other fun outings.”

The ball was hosted by Music Connections, Kindermusik. Thank you again for giving our daughter some freedom along with her safety. She was transplanted in June, thanks to the love of a stranger. We were in Cincinnati where the Cocoon can often be seen roaming the halls of the Children’s Hospital and Ronald McDonald house.

Daylight Savings Means Longer Days

It has finally arrived! While much of the country is still seeing white blankets of snow, the annual observance of ‘daylight savings’ arrives this weekend. Longer days mean more time to get out in the early evening for activity and outdoor recreation.

We encourage you to take this weekend to commit to an active lifestyle for your entire family! Get out and enjoy the longer days!

And, don’t forget to adjust your clock to the new time which officially goes into effect at 2 am Sunday. Yes, it means you’ll have an hour less sleep but, you’ll gain that back in the fall!

Joovy Attends Mommy Con Chicago

Joovy was happy to be inside on Saturday at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center for the 2014 kickoff MommyCon event in Chicago last weekend.  The weather was C-O-L-D and snowy but it did not keep anyone away as it was a capacity crowd all day long.  MommyCon is natural parenting convention dedicated to bringing modern parents together for the purpose of discussion, connection and building community.  Saturday’s event did not disappoint with workshops on babywearing, breastfeeding, parenting and so much more!

Joovy shared everything from the new Boob Baby Bottle Gift Sets and Glass Boob bottles, to highchairs, strollers, playards and of course toys!  We had lots of visitors, both old and new friends, stop by to check out new introductions and test drive Qools, TooQools, TooFolds and Caboose VaryLights.

Check out a few of the photos we snapped of fun folks, new friends and old.  Thanks to all who stopped by to visit Joovy.  We were happy to greet you and look forward to seeing you soon!

5 ways to get outside with Joovy!

It’s no secret, getting outside with your kids is much better for them than being inside – watching television or playing video games. Sometimes it’s hard to take the plunge and get outside, because you all know, the kids have way more energy than we do! I wanted to encourage you to do just that though. Here are a few fun ideas of items you can use to get outside and get the blood pumping in your body and your child’s.

If you have one child, put him/her in the Joovy Zoom ATS or Joovy Zoom 360 and get a walkin’! Or a runnin’! You aren’t a runner you say? I have heard of SO many people who didn’t really care for running at first. They ended up committing to a “Couch to 5K Training Program” (google that, you can totally find something) and feel so good after that accomplishment. After my first daughter, I signed up for my first 25K, and she trained with me the whole way, long and short runs in a jogger! What’s even better, you are setting a wonderful example for the child that’s riding along with you. They see what you are doing, and in turn, want to be like you…which makes it a win/win for all in the getting healthy department.

If you have more than one child, the CocoonX2 is your answer! Not only can this be used for walking or jogging, but it comes with an attachment for your bike. My husband and I are avid bikers, so we use this product as a permanent fixture to my bike during the warmer Michigan months. It’s totally easy to convert from walking to riding behind a bike too!

If your kids love to play outside with toys, Joovy has some phenomenal things they can sink they teeth right in to. If they like ride-ons, Joovy has 2 to choose from, the 4×4 ride-on or the Race Car ride-on. What kid wouldn’t love one of these!!??

If biking is their flavor, the Tricycoo or Bicycoo is right up their alley. The Bicycoo is one of my favorite Joovy products to be honest. Two of my kids have used this and never had to use training wheels on their big girl bikes. The Bicycoo gives them the confidence and coordination to take the plunge and move to their big kid bike. Combine any of these fine choices (listed in #3 and #4) with the Noodle helmet for a full package.

If you love to wear your babies, the BabaSling is your answer! You can get walking on your schedule even if your baby has to sleep!

While these are great examples for year round, why not keep this in mind for the as Spring approaches?!

I encourage you. Just get outside – even if you will not be utilizing one of the Joovy items I mentioned in this post yet. You are making memories with these little people that will last forever. If you haven’t noticed, time is not slowing down and your kids keep growing – too fast most times! The technology can wait, the housework can wait, the laundry can SURE wait! :) Your kids can’t.

Have fun! I’d love to hear what you do with your kids outside and if you have Joovy products, please tell me what you do with them. I’m always looking for more ideas!!
