Pregnancy & Newborn: On the double with the TooFold

The November issue of Pregnancy and Newborn is chock-full of of great pregnancy advice and good information for moms and moms-to-be. Their ‘Good Gear/Road Test’ feature, On the double, highlights some double strollers the team at P&N feels important to take note of if you’re in the market for a double stroller. We are thrilled that the Joovy TooFold has been included. The TooFold is Joovy’s ‘all-terrain’ stroller that has amazing functionality as a single, double and stand-on tandem.

P & N has dubbed the TooFold “Joy Ride” and says, ” Multi-purpose is the best word to describe the TooFold. It’s a single stroller with a built-in sstanding platform that can be flipped out of the way when not in use. Add a second seat (sold separately) if both passengers want to sit, or attach the huge storage bag for extra cargo capacity. We love the rugged adaptability.”

Get A Grip with the Joovy Hook: Pregnancy & Newborn

The October issue of Pregnancy & Newborn features picks for best seats in the house by their parent panel. By ‘best seats’ they mean top choices in highchairs for mealtime. Included in their coverage is our own Hook.

Featured in their Get A Grip section of ‘hook-on highchairs’, the Hook in orangie is shown ‘front and center’.

From the article:

Hung up over how to make room for a highchair in your already crammed kitchen? You’ll fall for these options hook, line and sinker.

Small but mighty

Joovy Hook, $70, joovy.com

“The Hook features ‘deluxe’ leatherette fabric,’ which is actually really nice and wipes like a dream. The seat is roomy (more than 10 inches deep) and lightweight (just over 5 pounds) – not bad for a seat that can hold diners up to 37 pounds!”

Pregnancy & Newborn, October 2015

For the full-length reviews of the highchairs featured, visit pnmag.com/highchairs

We’d like to add that the Hook comes with it’s own travel bag and is available in orangie, greenie and black. Perfect for day trips, travel and use at home. Check it out here!

Letters

I am a mom of 2 kids ages (2 yr. and 6mo.) and just started using the Boob Joovy bottles for my daughter about 3 months ago when I had to return to work for 12 hour shifts. Prior to me finding the Boob bottle, I tried Dr. brown, Playtex, Avent, and Tommie Tippie with no success of her latching on. We even had some trouble with the Joovy boob until I saw the natural nood nipple and I decided to try that. This has been the only nipple that she latches onto every time. It has made me feel better about going to work, knowing she will take her bottles easier while I’m away!
The nipple has similar features of the Tommie tippie that I used for my son, however, it doesn’t collapse and has a unique texture at the base.
The customer service was great when I encountered an issue with my bottles leaking.
Thank you!

The 7 Best Reasons to Get Fresh Air with the Kids

fresh air

 

 

 

 

 

The birds are singing. A whiff of freshly applied sunscreen as kids run by tingles your nose. The sweet sound of laughter echoes from every angle. The prickly green grass encompasses your barefoot toes. It’s summertime.

Some of our fondest memories are being outside during the summer months. The long days seemed endless. Yes, it gets hot. Yes, we get sweaty, but there is a certain importance to allowing our kids to roam free in the summertime. The value of fresh air is something we hold important as adults, but may be even more important for our children. According to the National Wildlife Federation the average American child spends 30 minutes or less outside each day yet seven or more hours in front of an electronic screen.

The outdoors can be beneficial for a variety of reasons. It’s time to put down the electronics and bask in the beauty of mother nature. Here are seven reasons to value the fresh air with your children:

7 Reasons to Get Fresh Air with the Kids
  1. Imagination/Creativity

The outdoors caters to our imagination. You get to explore new ideas and places. Create inventive games. The outdoors provide endless opportunities that help to sculpt a child’s imagination.

       2. Health Benefits

IMG_8968Fresh air equals a fresh mind. Getting outside offers a variety of health benefits. For one the sunshine boosts Vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is having healthy calcium and phosphorous levels which are essential in building and maintaining strong bones. Just don’t forget the sunscreen! Even just 20 minutes of fresh air a day can reduce stress and improve overall health. Fresh air is good for the body, and in particular the brain. NPR journalist Jon Hamilton discusses how child’s play outside can help build the brain and teach your children valuable lessons:

http://www.npr.org/sections/ed/2014/08/06/336361277/scientists-say-childs-play-helps-build-a-better-brain

 

 

 

 

 

  1. No Mess!

With lots of playtime indoors comes lots of clean up time as well. Time outside is good for the mind and also good for keeping mom’s living room clean. Enjoy some summer treats like watermelon or popsicles without the worry and frustration of making a mess that mom will have to clean up later.

 

  1. Change of Scenery

Yes we all love the time we get to spend relaxing on the couch and in the comfort of our homes, but there is beauty outside of our comfort zone as well. A change of scenery is good for the body and the mind. A nice hike or a quick dip in the pool can refresh the brain and release the stress we carry in our hectic world, plus your kid’s will love that valuable time spent with them in the fresh air.

  1. Fitness

IMG_4087With obesity rates increasing especially among our youth, fitness is something we should all ta

ke seriously. Like we mentioned before, even just 20 minutes a day can improve your overall health. Gyms get boring, especially with the same routine every day. Getting outside can provide a fun outlet to your static workout routines and also is a great way to keep your children healthy and active. Teaching your children the importance of a healthy lifestyle is a trait they can value and carry on into the rest of their lives. Jump rope, swim, gardening, walking, or kayaking – there is an endless amount of opportunity to keep you and your family fit while still having a lot of fun!

 

 

  1. Spirit & Soul

Have you ever walked outside after being cooped up on a long day, and felt immediately re-energize and overall better? It’s the magic of the outdoors. The sunshine can provide our bodies with energy and happiness. It actually releases endorphins that help to keep us happy and healthy. By incorporating the sunshine and fitness you’re participating in two activities that release endorphins. Good for the mind and body!

  1. Helps build a Strong Relationships

0vOyG1AsMs3VVMhcU1Dly-rwD1qD1xYAOLackuV8-Yk (1)Whether you’re camping deep in the forest or taking a stroll around your neighborhood park, fresh air with your children can help build an even stronger connection. Without the distraction of technology, being outside leads to stronger conversation and appreciation for the little things.

We Value YOU!

Dear Joovy,

I just wanted to commend the customer service I received at your Irvine, CA location. This happened awhile ago, but I was just reminded of how awesome your company is and it prompted me to send this.

My story starts when United Airlines lost one of the wheels off my stroller on our vacation to Legoland and Disneyland. This was a week and a half long trip so I needed to have the stroller or pay 15-25 dollars a day for an uncomfortable park stroller. I didn’t get my stroller until day 3 of my trip and United never notified me that a wheel was missing. They told me I would need to head to the airport to file a claim, but I already knew nothing would happen with them.

When I contacted the Joovy store all I asked is if they carried the wheel for my stroller. They said yes so I promptly drove down one early morning before heading to the parks to get a new wheel.When I walked in I explained why I was missing a wheel and why I needed to purchase a new one. The very pleasant woman at the desk promptly took my stroller from me and within minutes returned with not one, but two new wheels. She said there would be no charge for the wheels, gave me my old wheel just in case, and told me to go enjoy the rest of my vacation.

After the horrible customer service I got from United Airlines, it completely made my trip the customer service I got from your store. I apologize as I do not remember the name of who helped me, but if this message gets to them, THANK YOU!

Since then I have recommended joovy products to anyone who will listen and with a second child on the way I plan on purchasing another one. You have made me a joovy consumer for life and I wish more companies did business like joovy does! – Jimmy Liu
