I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central for GB. I received a gift card to purchase a GB stroller to both facilitate my review as well as thank me for my participation. It has been quite awhile since I’ve done a post on something baby related and when I was given the opportunity to test drive the GB Zuzu Stroller, I could not have been more excited. Despite having owned more than 4 different strollers, we have never really regularly used them. We’re a babywearing family so when it comes to getting around about about, Elle is usually wrapped on someone’s back or hip. Which sounds sweet ‘an all and it usually works well except um…it’s summer. In Florida. Like her Mama and Daddy, Elle has those overactive sweat genes and babywearing is uncomfortable for all when we’re doing outside activities.
The GB Zuzu has been more than perfect for our very active babe who lives a very active lifestyle. We head to a splash pad and farmer’s market every week and we would usually grab our very large so big it don’t make no sense stroller. It’s a pain. I hate it. But Zuzu in all of her lightweight’ness has been delightful. Grabbing it out of the car has been a breeze.
Zuzu also gets points for being the only stroller that doesn’t take up MOST of my trunk space and actually stands up on its own after you take it out of the car. The latter is one of those features you don’t think really matters until you actually have a stroller that DOESN’T stand up upright. Oh, and I should also mention that it took less than 7 minutes to put together right out of the box. I would really label Zuzu has an umbrella stroller PLUS. It has many sweet features that parents would want in an umbrella stroller but have to sacrifice. Take the large canopy, for one…
This is so so useful in the summer and I don’t think I’ve ever come across a canopy THIS large on a stroller this small. So yes, the oversized canopy with ventilated window is more than appreciated. Also appreciated is the durable material.
They aren’t only comfortable but helloooo, I can hang a bag or two on them. This is a big deal in the lightweight stroller world. Trust me on this. While Zuzu is lightweight, she still holds a lot of cargo.
Count the bags. There are two in the nice sized basket, there’s a bag on one handle, and a cloth diaper wet bag on the other handle. That’s 4 bags of stuff on that tiny stroller. And that’s when I knew the Zuzu would definitely be passed on to baby #2.
Calm down, y’all. There are no plans for baby #2 yet. If you didn’t know it, toddlers are pretty effective forms of birth control. Just sayin’…
-Easy breakdown and set up. I mean CRAZY easy.
-Small and compact. Perfect for small homes and cars.
-Self-stands when folded. Biggest perk evaaaa!
-Compatible with select infant carriers.
-Can last from newborn up until babes of 50 lbs.
-May be pricey for some at $199.
-No cup holder.
-Pulling the handles up when opening the stroller may take some getting used to.
I can’t say enough great things about this stroller. I am thrilled. Elle appreciates it because she gets the ease of quickly jumping in and out. I love being able to haul our life in it and being able to store it with without it taking up my entire trunk. It’s the little things in parenthood. Fellow parents know what I’m talkin’ about. You can get more details about this baby and purchase it at Babies ‘R Us.
So, parental units with littles…what strollers are you rollin’ with these days?
