There area lot of strollers out there. Some are superior than others. I often have friends and family ask me what my preference – and I can truthfully throw a few names out there for them to test-drive or look into. And some other strollers… I simply tell them to steer clear of or don’t follow the hype.
One stroller I am loving is the Zooper Waltz. It has lots of features that moms on the go need.
1. Lightweight: It has a lightweight aluminum frame. The stroller is only 17 pounds.
2. Folds Flat: Extremely valuable when you don’t have a massive SUV or minivan. I own a car, so space is limited. If I have a bulky stroller in the back, it means I have to stick bags and shopping purchases around the children. I want room in my car! So folding flat just rocks.
3. One hand steering: Whether I am pushing a double stroller or a single stroller, it always seems like I end up steering one-handed. Often because someone wants to be held on my hip – or I am holding a hand as I cross the street. But the Zooper Waltz is like a dance partner – moving instep with you. It’s almost intuitive.
4. Four position, reclining backrest: With my first son, I seldom used the infant seat in the beginning. I would lay him flat in a fully reclining stroller seat and let him relax and sleep that way. So, the fully reclining backrest is perfect for infants or napping toddlers.Although, it does include a stroller strap to allow you to use the stroller with almost any USA infant carseat. Options – gotta love it.
5. Rotating canopy: The canopy rotates fully to the front, to block sunlight from any angle from your child’s sensitive eyes stains.
6. Free-standing when folded: I hate when I fold a stroller and then it lays flat? It gets dirtier that way and takes up SO MUCH ROOM. But the Zooper Waltz will stand up on its wheels when folded!
7. Adjustable Leg Rest: For the comfort of your child, you can adjust the leg rest.

Unlike other strollers, where you have to pay extra for accessories – like a cupholder – it’s all included on the Zooper Waltz. When you purchase this stroller, you will also receive:
- Cup Holder
- Sleeping Bag
- Rain Cover
- Sun Shade
- Infant Carrier Security Strap
- Snack Tray
Overall, I think the Zooper Waltz provides a smooth ride for my little one. It’s a light stroller that can easily be left in the car as needed, since it doesn’t take up too much room. And when you do store it in your house, it will be barely noticeable since it does not take up too much storage room since it can stand upright.
I love how it reclines all the way back, so my toddler can take a nap as needed. Plus, I love all of the included accessories!
This is a great stroller that works with most infant carseats, so don’t fall into the trap of buying anything bulkier!
And if you are looking for something a little “fancier”, check out the elite line of strollers from Zooper.com - the Flamenco and Mambo. I love the idea of the dual hydraulic frame suspension on the Flamenco. Plus, Zooper also has double strollers and other “everyday strollers” that are sure to fit your lifestyle.
