Get Your Kids {Balancing Biking}

My daughter can now ride a real bike without training wheels!!! This is because of the balance bike. She just turned 4. Her cousins are riding at just barely 3 and 3.5 because they got their bikes and started earlier. Boys and girls. AWESOME!

By the way, this picture was taken the first day she got the bike on Thanksgiving 2011. She could ride a real bike after a couple months with the balance bike. Her cousins used their bike more often and so they were riding a real bike after just a few weeks. Seriously amazing. Especially seeing the 3 year old ride. He just turned 3! Thanks!

Scooter Review by Happy Stroller

Joovy Scooter Review

With a Joovy Scooter, you know that both you and your precious child will get the best because of the simple fact that it is made by a reputable company. This stroller comes with all sorts of wonderful features that parents have grown to love and appreciate.

What’s great is that this carrier is equipped with the latest in stroller technology and this means that you get high-quality performance. It is lightweight and spacious, which will allow your little bundle of joy to comfortably stay in place while you are out and about. If you try to do your bit of homework about this product, you will instantly see why you should also have a Joovy Scooter of your own. To top it off, it is reasonably priced at around $100.

More reasons to love the Joovy Scooter

A lot of parents like this particular carrier because of its style and quality features. It weighs only 18 and a half pounds with comfortable seating that measures 14 by 18 inches. With a Joovy Scooter, your child will always remain safe and comfortable because it comes with parts and accessories such as a sun-shielding canopy.

Another plus point about this stroller is that you can use it for your baby up to the time he becomes a toddler since it has a capacity of 55 pounds. Of course, you will also be delighted with its soft and padded 5-point harness system that is also adjustable and reflective. Remember that this is something you should look for when trying to find the perfect carrier for your child since it will keep him securely fit during each ride.

As you go through various write-ups about the Joovy Scooter, you will also run into comments that dwell on how well its bumper bar swings. You will get utmost convenience because it is easy to detach and even serves as a car seat adapter for brands such as Graco.

As mentioned earlier, your baby will always be comfortable since the leg part of this carrier can be adjusted in two different positions. Your little angel will be able to explore the world in a roomy stroller that is great for outdoor activities and nature adventures. Kids can also sleep soundly because the seat goes halfway back and it has a strap system that can virtually recline to any position up to 149 degrees.

Remember that if you want a stroller that enables you to quickly get from point A to Z with a high level of maneuverability, while allowing your child to ride safely and smoothly, the Joovy Scooter is the best choice.

Features:

  • Includes signature oversized canopy with a retractable sun visor – for maximum protection
  • One-hand recline system that locks in infinite positions, all the way down to 149 degrees for a near flat position
  • Bumper bar that can be used as a car seat adapter for all Graco infant car seats
  • Linked rear brakes for extra security while the stroller is parked

Monday Mom Mentions….

This is from a note I received last month and I wanted to share….Maybe some of you can relate to this mom whose four year old had a major public meltdown.  This little Axel had been a super good boy until he’d had enough of all that.   We introduced he and his mom to Joovy and, well, read on…..

“But even a huger thanks for introducing us to the Joovy Foocot–and this is why I’ve wanted to call you–for Axel’s cot. What a surprise hit that was! The minute we got home he unfolded it in the middle of our living room, went and got all his bedding from his bed and tucked himself in and would not leave! He put the cot next to his bed that night and refused to sleep in his own bed. He actually slept two nights in a row on that cot…seriously I don’t know what to say! Now, it’s a daily presence in his room and he says his baby sister is going to sleep on it next to his bed when she gets older. He LOVES that thing—I can’t even remember the last time he was so “hooked” on anything. Isn’t it funny the things they love? I myself thought it was such a great product when you showed it to me, but it still surprised me that my 5-year-old would be THAT excited about it. My husband and I have been joking about it and saying there’s nothing we can get for him for Christmas that’ll top it!”
