I am a stroller fanatic. I like to say that when I had kids, I traded in my obsession for shoes and bags with an obsession for baby gear. (My husband will beg to differ…I guess I still like shoes and bags too ;)) So, even though I already have quite a few strollers, I am always on the look for something better, newer, etc. I firmly believe that you need different strollers for different things. The type of stroller that I like to take to the mall, is not the same type of stroller that I like to take to the beach. The type of stroller that I take on vacation, is not the same type of stroller that I like to walk around the neighborhood with. You get my point. Today, I get to share with you a fantastic new stroller that I have had the privilege of testing, the Zooper Tango.
I first heard about Zooper when I was in Disney World with my kids. You can’t walk 5 feet in Disney without bumping into a stroller, and my eye was wandering the whole time, checking out all of the newest styles and brands. As soon as I returned from my trip, I reached out to Zooper to tell them how much I loved their designs, and they were kind enough to keep in touch with me and to let me test and review their double stroller, the Tango.
When the stroller arrived, I was able to assemble it in less than 5 minutes, all by myself. This was while my children continually tried to climb into it!! Here’s what you need to know about the beautiful Zooper Tango. (FYI for the parents of one child, the Zooper Waltz is very similar to the Tango, but is a single stroller.)
* The Zooper weighs 32 lbs – not bad for a double stroller!
* When folded, the Zooper stands on it’s own.
* The Tango has an all-purpose canopy that protects your child from UV rays, the rain, and the sun. (This is one of my favorite features. It’s difficult to find a stroller that has a canopy that can keep your child completely safe from the elements, especially in the upright seated position.)
* You can recline each seat of the Tango separately. Each seat has four different positions, and does get almost completely flat so your little ones can rest easily in their seat. Plus, you can recline the seats with one hand!
* The Tango can hold most infant car seats on one side of the stroller. (I LOVE this! I wish I had known about Zooper when my daughter was still in an infant seat.)
* Thanks to the wonderful headrests, the Tango is suitable for infants and toddlers up to 45 lbs each. (90 lbs total)
I received the Zooper in the Jungle Earth print, but is available in many different designs. You can see them all here. A few things that I personally love about the Zooper are the extremely large storage capacity under the stroller, the wonderful cup holder that stays on and straight all the time, the foot muff that keeps my babies warm in this frigid New England weather, and as I mentioned before, the fabulous, protective sunshades. I also adore the fact that Zooper is a company that cares about the community. In fact, from now until the end of the month, Zooper is donating 1 dollar to Doernbechers Children’s Hospital for every new like the receive on their Facebook page. Plus, if you head over there and like them, then come back here and tell us you did, you can enter to win one of these two fabulous prizes…
Zooper says, “When heading out with the little one, gear adds up and trunk space becomes a premium. That’s why the Zooper Hook-On Chair is so lightweight, flat folding, and simple to safely secure. Strong steel tubing and a secondary safety lock provide the security you expect. Padded, breathable materials ensure a comfortable dining experience. (Suitable up to 30lbs).”
Zooper says, “Rather than a sling seat that pulls a child’s weight down and shoulders inward, the Zooper Rocker is a supported, multi-position chair designed with one thing in mind—baby comfort! One-hand adjusted back and leg rests provide for both natural upright sitting and lay back positions. The rocking motion is a smooth back-and-forth, not dizzying bouncing, and the frame stops keep everything still at snack and nap times. Sound like first class? When it comes to keeping your baby content, it has to be!”
Zooper is offering one lucky commenter their choice of either the Zooper Hook On Chair or the Zooper Rocker.
Even if you are not interested in winning this contest, but you love their products, be sure to head over to Zooper’s Facebook page and like them! Don’t forget, for every new like, they are donating $1 to the Doernbechers Children’s Hospital. What an amazing company!!
