So of course, we always like to have a good, comfortable stroller available for such instances when our little ones simply cannot take another step on their own, and do not want to be held. If I am out on my own with the kids, this is especially vital. While I can hold or wear one baby, I need to be able to accommodate them both. So a high-quality stroller is a Mommy's Helper of sorts.
Zooper is a brand I have been hearing about more and more over the past year or so. This amazing brand offers beautiful products that are functional, fashionable, and safe. The folks at Zooper are committed to providing only top quality baby gear, and they take great pride in their innovations. Every product is thoroughly tested and lovingly designed with both the comfort and safety of children and convenience and ease of use for parents in mind.
As a matter of fact, their double-stroller, the Tango has been on my wish-list for what seems like ages. This stroller is absolutely drool-worthy, and is the perfect solution for families with more than one small child, like mine! While I am not reviewing the Tango, I wanted to mention it to you all since this really is the "Lamborghini of double strollers". It comes in fun color schemes and looks amazingly comfortable for little ones. So be sure to check it out! I especially love the Canyon Red design, since red and purple are my two favorite colors.
Zooper has a new, lightweight umbrella stroller in their line-up. This stroller is called the Stomp. I have never been a huge fan of most umbrella strollers. I remember having one with my oldest child, and he would slide out of the seat easily, even while secured, and he often complained that it wasn't very comfortable. Another gripe I have had about umbrella strollers is overall poor construction. Many are very cheaply made, and definitely don't hold up to everyday use. But while many umbrella strollers are flimsy, unsafe, and not very comfortable, the Stomp offers an entirely new take on umbrella strollers that is delighting both parents and children.
Zooper Stomp Features :
•Removable padded guardrail-I love this feature, since it allows me to feel peace of mind knowing my kids have an extra layer of protection against falls. You can even clip some toys onto this rail to keep kids occupied!
•Removable canopy for sun or shade-This is great, since sometimes my kids don't want the canopy on their stroller. It is easy to remove, and can be replaced in just seconds. And you don't need to be a rocket scientist to do it!
•2 Seat options: mesh or full fabric. The mesh option is wonderful for hot, sticky summer days, while the full fabric option helps keep baby warm and cozy during cooler weather.
•Brakes-Because no one wants a run-away stroller. I have seen this happen before, and it's enough to give a parent a heart attack!
•5-point safety harness
•Over-shoulder carry strap-This option is great because it allows parents to comfortably transport this stroller, just by throwing it over the shoulder.
•Umbrella fold for easy portability
•Suspension with swivel and lock wheels
•Easy-access utility basket-This basket admittedly isn't the largest I have seen, but many umbrella strollers don't have one at all, so this is a nice, added bonus.
•Safety latch for easy carrying-Yes, if the Stomp is closed, it will STAY closed.
•EVA tires 5″ front / rear
•Seat recline: ¾ recline-This recline is operated by a simple drawstring. It is not a very significant recline, but it is enough to definitely make a sleepy baby or toddler comfortable.
•Weight capacity: 45 lbs-The Stomp is intended for babies around 6 months or older, who can sit well independently. So if you've got a newborn, they will need to grow into this stroller. But let's face it: Newborns generally aren't a good fit for umbrella strollers to begin with! This stroller can get years of use, since 45lbs is a very generous weight limit. My soon to be 3 year old weighs around 30lbs, so she will be able to use it for quite some time.
•Stroller weight 10.85 lbs-SUPER lightweight, and surprisingly sturdy!
•Folded dimension: 45″ L x 11″ W x 12″ H-This is compact and will leave plenty of room in your trunk for groceries, gear and more!
•Open dimension: 25″ L x 18″ W x 41″ H
•Handle height: 41″
•Backrest height: 17.5″
•Seat width: 12″
The Zooper Stomp also comes in 2 great colors: Canyon Red and Black. The Canyon Red is actually more of a light red or bright salmon, and I absolutely love how vibrant it is. It's not your typical red, so it's sure to stand out in a crowd and make you the envy of the playground. And black...Well, that's pretty self-explanatory. Black is classic, sleek, and beautifully gender neutral. Black never goes out of style, either, so this stroller can be passed down from child to child.
We received the Zooper Stomp in black to review. The first thing I noticed was how well made this stroller is. It's not flimsy and cheap like most umbrella strollers tend to be. It is made from high-quality materials, and even has a fun, overall pattern that is subtle but adds a touch of class to the appearance of the Stomp.
I also love the fact that this stroller truly is lightweight. At under 11lbs, there is no need to lug it around or struggle to put into into the trunk of your vehicle. Even my oldest child can carry this stroller around with no complaints.
Once the Zooper Stomp was fully assembled, I took a few minutes to familiarize myself with all of its great features. I'd like to share just a few of them with you.
It also has a removable guard-rail for an added sense of security. This will help keep curious tots in their seat where they belong, and will also help shield them from falls should they get the 5-point harness undone.
There is also a flexible footrest found between the front wheels. This is great for bigger kids who need somewhere to rest their feet.
I would absolutely recommend the Stomp to any families out there looking for a dependable umbrella stroller with tons of style and flair. And it's quite affordable too, and can fit into any budget. Once you try the Stomp, you'll never go back to those other umbrella strollers. I know we won't!
This was a great introduction to the Zooper brand, and I know see why so many people say that Zooper products are absolutely amazing. I am very excited to see what they come up with next! (And I am going to start saving all of my pennies for the Tango...If the Stomp is this fabulous, I simply NEED the Zooper's double-stroller now! Sigh...I guess good things come to those who wait!)
