Can I just say I have been coveting jogging strollers since I first got pregnant with Noah 3 years ago!!! Well it has finally happened y’all! The lovely people at Graco were looking for bloggers to try out and talk about their new FastAction Fold Click Connect Jogger and I am one of them!
Last Wednesday we all met at a park in Kennesaw, just North of Atlanta, to learn all about this awesome stroller! Megan Cooper, of JaMonkey, and a representative from Graco demonstrated all of the wonderful features of the stroller and answered questions we had after trying out the jogger for a few weeks.
A few awesome features are the easy one-step fold process and the parent console. The parent console is by far my favorite! It has an awesome cell phone cradle that holds my IPhone 4 in an Otterbox case and I have heard that it will hold an IPhone 5 but not in a case. The cradle is a tension cradle that will hold the phone in place so that it can’t be jostled out of the stroller. The other feature is how easy it is to fold. It honestly took me a little to get the hang of it, the front swivel wheel has to be facing a certain way, but I love that I can do this one handed!! And it has a kick stand to keep it upright. This means that I can take Bryce out of the stroller and fold it, storing it out of the way, all without having to put him down. It may sound like a small thing, but anything that helps make life just the littlest bit easier counts!!
I have been using the jogger as my regular stroller these last few weeks and I have to say I am really liking it! The weight, 30 lbs, surprised me at first, but after the first couple of days I am not having any problems moving it in and out of my car. And it so easy to push!! I literally can push it with just one finger! This is super important when navigating all of these hills here in Atlanta!
The last part I will mention is that this jogger is part of the Click Connect series of Graco products. This means that you can use it with your Click Connect Infant carseat! It should be noted that newborns are fragile little creatures and should not be carried in the stroller while jogging as they can be jostled, but the stroller is great for other uses too! I have carted Bryce all over town in it and had no problems. It turns on a dime and easily maneuvers tight spaces. It should also be noted that you can purchase the jogger alone or with a carseat as a travel system (shown above).
Graco’s NEW jogger is the ultimate crossover stroller, combining all the comfort and convenience features of a traditional stroller (FastAction Fold and Click Connect Technology) with performance and maneuverability of an all-terrain jogger.
As an added bonus, Graco’s innovative one-second, one-hand FastAction™ fold automatically locks & is self-standing.
