With 2 little boys, I use a stroller on a daily basis, whether it is going for walks around the neighborhood or pushing the boys around at a store. I like our double stroller but is still big so I have been looking for a stroller to keep in my trunk that I could use for Baby Boy or Little Man that is lightweight, folds up small, has storage and a cup holder. Since I have been wanting a lightweight stroller you can imagine how excited I was when the 2011 Zooper Twist in Star Black showed up on my doorstep. The 2011 Zooper Twist is a lightweight stroller with numerous features that most lightweight strollers do not have.
- All purpose canopy
- Foot Muff
- Headrest for Newborn Baby
- Five-Point Safety Harness
- Adjustable Leg Rest
- Infant Safety Enclosure
- Four Independent Wheel Suspensions
- All Purpose Canopy Pocket
- Cup Holder
- Simple Compact Fold & Easy-Carry Handle
- One-Hand Seat Recline
- One Step Rear Link Break
- Removable Front Armrest
- Carseat Fastening Belt
The stroller was very easy to put together, my husband did not need any directions and within minutes the stroller was ready to use, all he had to do was snap on the wheels and the canopy.
Canopy: The main difference between the 2011 Zooper Twist and the 2010 model is the new design of the canopy. The all-purpose canopy on the 2011 Zooper Twist is water-resistant and combines a rain cover, and UV net all into one unit. The canopy can also be extended to cover the entire seat, which I think it s great feature. Not only is the extended canopy great for naps, but it also helps to protect your little one from the sun and wind. The newly designed canopy along with the Foot Muff give your little one complete protection from external hazards.
Five-Point Harness: I am a big fan of the five-point harness. On a typical day the waist belt is enough for Little Man, but Baby Boy loves to squirm and can find his way out if their are not straps around his shoulders. The five-point harness provides the best protection and keeps my little ones safe and prevents accidents.
Seat Recline: I was really surprised at how far back the seat on the Zooper Twist reclined. You can easily recline the seat to four different positions with just one hand. It reclines a lot more than our previous lightweight stroller which allows Little Man to be more comfortable while he sleeps.
Removable Front Arm Rest: The 2011 Zooper Twist has an easy removable front armrest that protects your baby from sliding out of the stroller, it provides a convenient mode for the baby get in and out of the stroller. Although I think the Front Arm Rest is a great feature, it is not for us. I prefer to leave the armrest off and leave the seat open, which allows the boys to climb in and out of the stroller themselves.
Storage/Cup Holder There are two pockets on the back of the canopy to hold your necessities (keys, wallet, diapers, ect) in addition to the storage basket at the bottom of the stroller. Their is also a cup holder on the side to hold a drink.
Lightweight/Compact: The stroller folds very nicely and is lightweight (15 lbs!) and compact. There is a handle on the side which allows you put it into your trunk or carry it easily.
Overall, I am very happy with the 2011 Zooper Twist, although I am not a fan of the armrest, some children may prefer it and I like how you have the option to take it off. This stroller is everything I wanted in a lightweight stroller, it is compact and folds up easily, it has plenty of storage room, it has a cup holder, and the extended canopy is a great addition.
Buy It: You can purchase the 2011 Zooper Twist for $199.99. It is available at a variety of retailers, you can view the list of retailers at Zooper and it is also available on Amazon.com.
