I do love a good stroller.
As the mom of three kids ranging in age from 7 years old to 4 months old, I have gone through many, many strollers. The truth I've discovered is that strollers are like handbags:
You need one for every occasion and your stroller should always match your shoes.
I was given the opportunity to test and review the new FastAction™ Fold Click Connect™ Jogger from Graco, the perfect accessory for a day spent in the park, walking to school or tooling around town.
Last week, a bunch of us Mommas got together at the Smith Memorial Playground in Fairmount Park for a playdate and to give our strollers a whirl. We were treated to a Stroller Strides workout, with some fabulous instructors from Stroller Strides Cherry Hill. (I am still limping after the squats!)
The FastAction™ Fold Click Connect™ Jogger is fantastic. It offers a smooth, safe ride while I am exercising, whether in the grass or on pavement. I am totally see using the stroller on the beach this summer--the front wheel looks in place, making rough terrain like sand or field easy to maneuver. I can also see myself pushing the stroller through the city streets or at the airport (it folds so fast and smoothly without drama).
Once folded, the stroller has its own kickstand, so you can store without it falling all over the place. The tires are air filled--so you can adjust tire pressure for the smoothest ride possible. There are also reflectors on the tires, perfect for Fall afternoon runs when the sun goes down early.
It is sleek, stylish and looks great with my sneakers and just as adorable with my heels.
And speaking of heels, the FastAction™ Fold Click Connect™ Jogger stands taller than most other
joggers on the market. I am 5'9" and stooping over while pushing a baby and jogging is the last thing I want to do.
The stroller has a 3 or 5-point convertible harness and all Graco Click Connect products (we love our Graco Click Connect Snug Ride 40) can snap right into the seat--so if the baby is asleep, you don't have to wake them up to transfer them before you head off on your adventure. If you do strap your little one directly into the stroller, the seat reclines.
Storage is also generous AND there is a smartphone holder in the cup console (brilliant!).
Graco’s NEW jogger is the ultimate crossover stroller, combining all the comfort and convenience features of a traditional stroller (FastAction Fold and Click Connect Technology) with performance and maneuverability of an all-terrain jogger.
As an added bonus, Graco’s innovative one-second, one-hand FastAction™ fold automatically locks & is self-standing.

What a great stroller this is! Great review...I too love the smartphone holder!ReplyDelete
Hmmm must share with the sisters. They both have baby girls under a year. How much weight can the stroller hold? I also have 3 year old nephew. I have never heard of the fitness class before. I might be borrowing baby and stroller and look up one of those classes. lolReplyDelete
I LOVE this! Looks like a great stroller! Love the blog!!!ReplyDelete
