With the New Year upon us we all have a large list of resolutions. The resolution at the top of my list is always get in shape. Year after year, I feel like I fail on this resolution because I don’t have the tools to easily make it happen. Sometimes when things are hard, it is harder to accomplish them. Having kids, exercise is really difficult for me because I feel like I don’t have a way to get out of the house to work out because I have kids with me.
This weekend, I had the opportunity to go out with my family and get some exercise. One of the things we like to do is to go hiking on a trail and then whale watching. We have always used a umbrella stroller for our daughter which has made it hard for me to get any exercise. This weekend, I took her out in the Joovy Cocoon and the experience was completely different. The ride was so smooth, it was so easy to maneuver and I was even able to go off on my own for a little job and the stroller drove easily through the dirt path.
The Joovy Cocoon stroller has large rear wheels that I felt really helped give it a smooth ride. It handles bumps and rocks perfectly and makes it a very comfortable ride. The front wheels are swivel wheels so this makes it so you can turn the stroller really easily while you ran. I had a jogging stroller in the past that was bulky and heavy and I could hardly turn it by myself when a kid was in it, so it was so nice to see how easily and smoothly the Joovy Cocoon turns and moves.
I have never seen a jogging stroller with a zippered storage area. This is really a huge benefit to the stroller. We went on a picnic when we were out and we were able to fit all of the food in the storage compartment. I have also put my diaper bag in there, so I am always prepared with everything I need when we are out for a walk. I love that it can be closed with a zipper because then you don’t have to worry about anything falling out while you are running.
On the top of the Joovy Cocoon, you have a great little window that you can use to peak in on your kids. Having my baby in the stroller, I peaked in a lot and she was so happy going for our walk. It is great being able to quickly and easily check on your child while you are walking.
There is so much room inside the Joovy Cocoon for your child! I think there is more leg room and seat room in our Cocoon than in our car!! 🙂 The stroller comes with a five point harness which is so important to really hold your child in place. My daughter was very happy riding in the Cocoon and seemed to be very comfortable.
The Joovy Cocoon has a large window opening so your child can see and enjoy the scenery all around you. I love that you have the option to have a zippered mesh widow for warmer weather, so they are still covered but are able to feel the breeze. You also have the option for a vinyl window when the weather is cooler and they need more protection. We are moving to Utah soon so I think the vinyl feature will be very handy for the winter and the mesh window for the summertime!
My first thought after my husband put the Cocoon together was shocked by how big it is. This really impressed me because there was a lot of room for my child to ride in it, but it was also light and easy to maneuver. My biggest concern, though was of the big size and whether I would be able to fit it into the back of my car. We have an SUV and the trunk space isn’t very big. I was shocked by how small the Joovy Cocoon could fold down and it fit just fine in our trunk as well as our diaper bag and picnic items without any problem! Joovy really did a great job in the design making it so it could fold down so compact!
This is such a wonderful stroller and I have been so impressed with it. Everything from the ease of putting it together, the style, the easy mobility, the comfort for my daughter and the compact way it folds up. If you are in the market for a stroller of a jogging stroller I think that the Joovy Cocoon is a perfect option. You can buy this wonderful bike online at Joovy.
If you want to take your stroller one step further, I would recommend purchasing the Cocoon Bicycle Trailer Attachment. I love love love that the Cocoon has this option. We are moving to Utah soon and will have a bike trail near our house. So I plan on getting this so not only do I have a great stroller, but it also can turn into a bike trailer so we can enjoy the bike ride as a family!
It really doesn’t get cooler than that! The Cocoon is a stroller-jogger-bicycle trailer in one!
