Joovy Groove Stroller Review & 3 Strollers Giveaway

A few weeks ago, I received a Joovy Groove stroller to review. Now that I have had a full test run of this great stroller, I am ready to share my thoughts with you.

Retailing at $199.99, this stroller has the weight of a compact stroller but the size and mobility of a full size stroller that moms will love.  
The first thing I noticed about this stroller was how high the handle bars are in comparison to other compact strollers I have tried. At 5'4", it is very comfortable for me to push this stroller. My husband is 6'5" and he thought that the height of the handles on this stroller were great.

The second thing I noticed about the Groove stroller is how wide it is. Even though it looks like a compact stroller, I would say that it is actually wider than some of the full size strollers that we own.
In the back of the stroller, there's two mesh pockets for drinks. I am able to use one pocket for my coffee and one pocket for baby G's bottle. There is also a large zipper pocket which I use to store my keys and wallet when I take my little guy out to the park or to the stores. 
The storage space under the stroller is pretty standard. Because I am usually carrying a huge backpack style diaper bag, it actually does not fit into the storage space at all (though I have to mention that my diaper bag doesn't fit into most full size strollers' storage space either). Since my diaper bag does not fit, I usually like to use this space for baby G's blankets, toys or my shopping bags.
A feature I really love on this stroller is that the front wheels could be unlock so that you can make 360 degree turns with the stroller. Not only that baby G loves it when I turn the strollers in circles for him, (what can I say, babies are easily entertained, lol), I also like doing this with all of the strollers I review because it gives me a really good sense of its mobility level when I am out on playdates with my little guy for the day (When I have to push this stroller around corners, passing by kids, through doors, up & down curbs and so forth). 
Another feature I love is how large the canopy is. This oversize canopy provides wonderful protection to my baby's skin when we are in the sun. If I ever want to check on him, I just need to open up the little cover to see what he is up to.
I would say that Baby's favorite feature on this stroller is the mesh pockets on the seat next to him -- there is one on each side.

We use the mesh pockets to store his toys and he loves be able to play with his toys whenever he wants while hanging out in the stroller. 
Transporting the stroller is also very easy. I love the sturdy handle that's on the side of Groove. Once it is folded up, I just grabbed the handle to toss the stroller into the back of my car. At 17 lbs, this stroller is so light that I could carry baby G in one arm and put the stroller into the trunk of my car with my free hand.
All in all, we think that this stroller is very nicely stroller. It definitely has features that we adore. If you are looking for a light weight stroller that's truly functional, then I would highly recommend checking out the Joovy Groove. This stroller comes in 4 different colors. We chose the green, but we think that the orange color is very pretty too :).
