If you have ever heard someone say that all strollers are the same I have two things to say. Number one – they are wrong, hehe. And number two – they have never used a Zooper stroller. I have used many strollers…. more than my hubby would probably like and I know an awesome stroller when I see one. I absolutely love our Zooper Tango which is Zooper’s double side by side stroller and wondered what I would think of one of their single strollers. Then I got the chance to find out!
When the Zooper Bolero arrived in Canyon Red I was beyond excited and after a quick set up we were ready to roll. The first place we decided to take the Bolero for a test drive was to a local walking path that surrounds a lake. This path is rather uneven with gravel in some areas and a few hills so I knew it would definitely put the Bolero to the test. Dustin and I got the girls all ready to go and then I folded down the stroller. For some time Dustin has said that the perfect full size stroller would have the capability to fold like an umbrella stroller so that it would take up less space in the car. Well guess what? Let’s just say he was rather impressed to see that the Zooper Bolero does just that! When you release the extra strong die-cast handle bar release it folds inwards allowing for the umbrella fold. So the Bolero takes up less room in the car, is easy to carry and can be stored standing up right. All of these features make it super easy to transport wherever you need to go with less complaining from the hubby that the stroller takes up the whole back of the car, hehe.
I previously mentioned that the walking path I decided to test the Zooper Bolero out on is uneven and has patches of thick gravel, wooden bridges, and more. This was no problem for the Bolero because it is equipped with four independent wheel suspensions so we were able to walk the entire path without getting stuck or hung up once. I do wish the wheels were a tad bigger, but other than that no complaints!
Sugar enjoyed riding in style and there were a few other things that made our walk much simpler than with other strollers. I love how the horizontal handlebar allows for single handed pushing. This was if Dustin needed to answer the phone or hand Dilly her cup he could just keep pushing which will be even more convenient when there is a newborn on board because most momma’s know what happens when you stop the motion of a stroller with a newborn…. it’s not good, hehe.
Something else that is a huge deal is having a large snack tray with a deep cup holder. A few of the other strollers we have had either just didn’t have a snack tray or if they did while going over bumpy terrain Dilly and Sugar’s cups would bounce right out of the cup holder. We lost quite a few cups that way because some little girls either didn’t notice their cups bounced on out or didn’t care to inform momma. Luckily Zooper has taken care of this problem. As you can see the snack tray is very generously sized and the cup holder is deep so no worries about a cup bouncing out – yay!! Sugar didn’t have any snacks on the tray for this trip because we were going out to dinner after our walk, but that small bowl like indent where her left hand is will be perfect for goldfish crackers or cheerios.
The Zooper Bolero definitely makes outings easier for momma and dad too. But I think what I am most excited about is the fact that it can be turned into a reversible bassinet. This way Baby Girl will be able to face me and ride in comfort without having to be stuck in her infant seat all the time – though you can also attach the infant seat to the stroller if that is what you prefer. So many options with the Zooper Bolero makes it a perfect stroller!! Plus the fact that this stroller is ideal for an infant or toddler. I absolutely love it.
