A few weeks ago I received the Joovy Zoom 360 to test out with my little chunky monkey! It was love at first sight–the bold colors that Joovy uses make me happy and the blue of this stroller is no exception! My first impressions after taking it out of the box was that it was very easy to assemble. I am a little mechanically challenged, and I managed to put it together in about 20 minutes. All you need to do is pop on the wheels and the parent organizer.
Some of my favorite features on this new jogging stroller (the first for Joovy) is that it has a HUGE sun shade. As with most parents, sun protection is really important to me, and the Joovy Zoom 360’s sun shade does a great job of shielding your child. It’s easy to put up and down depending on the light. It also has a peekaboo cover, so you can periodically check in on your little one.
The 3-inch suspension on this stroller is great, and it offers a smooth ride over bumpy terrain. Even though I mostly run on the bike path in town, it’s great to have the extra cushioning for bumpier terrain. The Zoom 360 also worked well on the sand. I love having a stroller that can actually make it out onto the beach! The front wheel locks for jogging and unlocks if you want more maneuverability to stroll around.
Storage Basket and Accessories
Other things I really like about the Zoom 360 are the easily accessible (and large) stowaway basket and the fact that the stroller comes with a parent organizer and rain shield. Many other strollers make you pay for these accessories! I also love that the stroller came preloaded with reflectors on the tires. The five-point harness also has reflective stitching. One thing I wish it did have was an adjustable handle bar. I am about 5’4″ and it was fine for me; but I think if you were on the shorter side, it might be a little awkward to push/run with the stroller.
When it comes to folding this stroller and stowing it in the car, it couldn’t be easier. You just lift up a flap and pull up, and it folds in half. I was surprised how easy it was to fold up!
I think the Joovy Zoom 360 is a fantastic addition to the jogging stroller market, and it’s at a great price point at $249.99 (keep in mind this includes the accessories that are usually add-ons with other jogging strollers!). I have had a great experience both running with this stroller and using it to cruise around town.
