I'm just gonna be honest here --
If you told my 18-year-old self that I'd one day be super stoked about a stroller (and really, giddy if I'm being quite honest), I never would have believed you in a million years. And heck, if you had told my 26-year-old self with a baby that I'd one day fall in love with a stroller, I still wouldn't believe you.
But here I am at 28 years old and it's absolutely, positively, 100% true.
I'm totally in love with my Joovy Qool stroller. It's like the can't live without, need it use it every day just because, kind of love. I feel like the people over at Joovy got into my brain, learned all of the things I didn't like about my old stroller and all of the things I loved and put them all into one beautiful package and voila, the Joovy Qool was born.
You guessed it -- today I'm showing off our Joovy Qool and all of the "qool" features it has that I love so much.
So if you want to see the best affordable stroller out there (in my eyes), a sleek, affordable stroller for 2 kids, a stroller with a convertible bassinet, a stroller with a lot of storage, a stroller with a bench seat or a stroller for three kids, this one is all of the above. Literally, all of it.
You just wait...you're going to be as giddy as I am in a couple of minutes.
The Joovy Qool
(aka best affordable stroller on the planet)
1. The Price
Before I get started on the features, the Joovy Qool is only $500. Yep, that's all folks. I seriously can't believe it. Our old stroller was hundreds of dollars more with far less feature options so this, this is gold. Well, it actually comes in black or gray but you get what I'm saying ;)
2. The Look
I mean, just look at it. It's a sleek looking stroller and totally looks high-end without the high-end price. I don't know about you, but it's my style to a tee.
When Ava was first born, I remember trying to grocery shop with her at Trader Joe's. I'd try to squeeze everything into the tiny little space below the seat, piled things on top of the drink holder and all around her feet. Moral of the story: there just wasn't enough storage space. But look at this -- this is a stroller with tons of storage space below and I LOVE my shopping trips to Target these days with my Joovy.
4. Two-Seated Stroller
While it doesn't come with it, you can add a second seat in front or even a car seat with their adapters so once you bring a second little one into your growing family, you don't even have to replace your stroller. Yep, you heard that right, there are tons of different configurations for one child, two kids, rear facing, front facing, car seat adapters, an option for a bassinet and so many more. Oh yeah, and it's even a stroller for three kids all at once too so it's serious stroller goals for those growing families.
5. Bench Seat
It's a stroller with a bench seat and that's Ava's favorite part! You can have two seats and a bench seat, making it a stroller for three kids. Or you can be like us and use the bench seat when Ava gets fussy during a shopping trip and voila, change up the view and she's happy as can be.
This bench seat is seriously so cool, right?
6. Extra Shopping Bag
You see that shopping bag right there? If you've only got one kid, you can attach it in place of the second seat and voila, you've got storage galore. Because we all know that as soon as any mom heads to Target, that extra space is much needed.
7. Adjustable Stroller Handle
One thing I cannot stand about our old stroller is that I always had to hunch over when pushing it. I'm tall (5'8") but not that tall. In fact, my husband hated pushing the old stroller for this very reason. But the Joovy Qool has an adjustable handle so it's totally made for me.
8. Fold It In One Click
Click one button and push the handle down and voila, that's all there is to closing it up for storage. Pretty amazing, huh?
9. Add On's
There are bassinet add ons, extra seat add-ons and I even added on a tray for Ava and a mommy holder for my Starbucks, of course.
So if you're looking for the best affordable stroller out there, the Joovy Qool is highly recommended. Click that button below to shop all of the Joovy stroller lines!
