As one of the lighter umbrella strollers on the market, parents love that the carry strap for the Joovy is such that you to carry it perpendicular to your body (so it doesn’t slam into the back of your knees!) The peekaboo window on the top of the canopy, a zippered pocket in the back to stash your keys and phone, and the mesh cup holders for parents and tots, are awesome included features. Parents also rave about Joovy’s customer service.

The catch: Some wish that the ride were a little smoother.

  • This is a good umbrella stroller for travel and when you just need a simple and light stroller. It is very light, portable and easy to maneuver. Oct 23, 2016

  • Folds and stores amazing, phenomenal canopy. Storage is awful, can't fit my diaper bag. Push isn't great either, and I wish the seat sat up straighter, my son always looks awkward and uncomfortable. Oct 05, 2016

    Light weight, lays flat, seems comfortable. Wish canopy was bigger. Easy enough to close one handed, but takes practice. May 16, 2016

  • Haven't tested it yet, super easy to put together, collapse, expand. Has a zippered pouch for parents, 2 cup holders and is sturdy. Not the lightest umbrella stroller out there but doesn't feel like the frame will be destroyed. Jan 16, 2015

    easy fold up and great sunshade for a compact stroller. also lots of storage and very lightweight! recline is a great feature that allows baby to nap on outings. Sep 26, 2014

  • Excellent stroller, fantastic customer service. I just wish it folded up a little smaller. Aug 11, 2014

  • This is great for a light weight umbrella style stroller. I can collapse it with one hand/foot. Love the light weight. Baby is comfortable! Apr 24, 2014

  • I was going to purchase the Maclaren, but after reading reviews this is the umbrella stroller to buy! A little cheaper in price and awesome for traveling or running to the store! Feb 21, 2014
