Checking Our List #36: Zooper Tango Double Stroller {Review & Hook-On Chair Giveaway - 5 winners!}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Savvy Addy, deanna, Brandi Elam, skgaff and Cakeblast!}

It's no secret that there are a lot of strollers out there. From travel systems to umbrellas to joggers, it's often bewildering for first-time parents to see all of the options and wonder what makes one better than the others.

However, once you've moved on and have selected one and you're (hopefully) happily using and enjoying it, the inevitable usually happens: baby #2. Right back to where you started, now you're in the world of tandems versus side-by-side and wondering about the newer "in-line" models and if the child in the second seat can actually see around the first seat...

Fortunately there are companies that combine innovation, quality and versatility and are dedicated to improving baby products for busy mothers and can be turned to without hesitation. With a core philosophy of engineering more into every product that they make - more space, comfort, convenience, safety - Zooper's strollers and indoor safety products give you and your baby more of only the best.

Known for being one step ahead of the competition not only in terms of their incredibly durable products, Zooper goes to the extreme when it comes to testing each item that they sell. Combine that with the free accessories that come with their strollers and just how stylish they are and I was pretty interested (okay, more like really interested) in seeing their 2011 Tango double stroller in person.

The Tango includes a very long list of features that were clearly designed and included with both the children and the parents in mind. From the parent cup holder to the one-hand push to the one-step rear brake to the 30" wide frame to ensure that it fits through doors easier than most double strollers... moms everywhere can appreciate the thought that went into each aspect of Zooper's unique design.

But the children definitely weren't left out in the thought process, as there is plenty to make this a smooth and comfortable ride. The independently reclining, 4-position, plush seats, the huge, full-coverage canopies (even during naps) , the five-point safety harnesses that can be easily adjusted for all ages and the movable leg rests are just a few of the reasons that kids will love the Tango as much as moms.

When the large box arrived, it was time to see this beauty in person...


Pretty amazing stroller, isn't it?

Even though Big Sister E is nearing the top of the recommended weight range (from newborns up to 45 pounds; 90 pounds total between the two seats) for the Tango, she and Little Sister B adored it immediately.

I would have loved to have owned this stroller when Little Sister B was a newborn, as it would have been perfect for transporting both kids around with ease. Not only would Big Sister E have been able to ride comfortably, but the design of the frame is such so that it can accommodate one infant car seat (from a variety of brands) safely - it even comes with a Car Seat Accessory strap for complete security.

Not to mention the great storage basket and pockets, easy to clean material, front and rear wheel suspension for a smooth ride that isn't hard to push and just how easy it is to open and fold - all of these are great for any parent trying to juggle two kids!

I think the only additions that I would make to the Zooper Tango would be to add a snack tray with cup holder for the children (both of my kids can't go 10 minutes without eating or needing their waters) and, although I really like the one-piece handle, it would be nice if it were adjustable for my tall husband.

But considering the numerous benefits and features that this does include, I would say that those are easily outnumbered. Where else am I going to find all of this luxuriously comfortable room for my kids in a stroller under 30 pounds that folds compactly, stands alone and is perfect for both the hot and cold weather that we live in?

For top-of-the-line quality, safety and comfort that is convenient for baby and mom, Zooper has done a great job in designing the Tango for 2011. Retailing for $499, it even comes in a huge variety of new colors and patterns for every personality! For walks around the block, across the grassy park or down a bumpy road, this is one double stroller that is definitely easy to push and built to last.

When it comes to convenience, however, Zooper doesn't only offer amazing strollers. Their lightweight, flat-folding, simple to use and secure Hook-On Chair is a must for feedings at home or for travel. Snapping together without any tools, this portable seat has multiple safety locks and an adjustable 4-point harness so that your child can be safe while comfortably enjoying dining anywhere.

Whether you need more room at home, do some eating on-the-go, or need a high chair for occasional young visitors and don't want a full size one taking up unnecessary room, Zooper has a quality solution. And, thanks to their generosity, they want five people to get to experience that wonderful solution, because...

Five lucky people will win a Hook-On Chair from Zooper! ARV $49!

I like the Flamenco stroller, it is good for newborns all the way up to a 75 lb. toddler. You would get to use it a little longer.
