*A big thank you to Joovy for sponsoring today’s post. As always, thoughts and opinions are my own.
With two boys just 16 1/2 months apart, a double stroller is a NEED for our family! A year and a half ago I remember talking it over with my husband, we had two kids under two and it was too hard to go places — we needed to invest in a double stroller. I searched and searched for a stroller I liked that was also within our budget and I found the Joovy ScooterX2. We purchased the stroller, the boys loved it, and we were and are very happy with it.
But this year we went on a trip to Monterey and with all our baggage and our family vehicle’s smallish trunk and guess what didn’t fit? Our amazing double stroller! And trust us, we still love it but we just don’t know when or if we will be getting a bigger vehicle. So after walking and often carrying our children around the Monterey Bay Aquarium all day, it seemed pretty obvious to us that we needed a double stroller that was also a better fit for our car. One that could handle our family outings, walks, travel, and was also a good quality stroller.
We already knew we loved the Joovy brand so I was happy to find the Joovy TwinGroove Ultralight!
Who has time to smile for pictures when there’s a fountain to watch?
I love all the storage available on the Joovy TwinGroove Ultralight. There are cupholders, these pouches, and also storage underneath–we use all of these features regularly! The seats recline, which is great if one of our little ones wants to nap on a walk. There are separate canopies–one over each seat–and you’d be surprised how much we like this feature. Oftentimes one of our littles wants shade while the other wants the canopy up.
And one of the best things about this stroller is that it’s lightweight (I’m a petite girl so I like this feature a lot!) and it fits in our car even when we are traveling with lots of bags! Two weeks ago we took a short trip to Half Moon Bay and we were able to take the stroller and it ended up being a huge help, especially when both of our boys needed to take a nap before their aunt’s wedding.
With two little guys, we’re really enjoying our Joovy TwinGroove Ultralight–it’s exactly what we needed for this time in our lives!
Have you ever shopped for a double stroller? What features did you look for?
Had to share just one more picture of my husband taking the boys for a walk at a park.
