The “4×4” of prams.
A whole year with our trusted Joolz day3 travel system and what a wonderful year it’s been. You could say that we’ve done it all this year when it comes to pram / stroller durability and loyalty testing. We’ve lived in the countryside until Leon was 7 months old, so the wheels and the sturdy frame have passed all the tests there. Leon’s dad calls it “the 4×4 pram” as it really is the most reliable and supportive system in all kinds of weather. We’ve even had in the snow, city roads and and you guessed it – absolutely fine.
Joolz Day3 comes with a range of very practical and very stylish accessories and although we didn’t use their frame adaptive car seat, we did start off with the newborn cot. It’s one of the reasons why I chose Joolz – their super protective, warm and weather-proof cot. If your baby was born in the Winter (in Scotland), you’ll see why this is important. Not only that, but Leon was also an early baby, so he needed extra warmth, comfort and protection and once again, Joolz Day3 ticked those boxes for us too. Plus it looks so chic too, right? The option to easily switch the cot or seat around is brilliant. Leon became nosey very early on, so we had him facing out most of the time, but there’s nothing cuter than looking at their cute little faces when the seat’s facing you. Just watch that step – don’t bump into walls 😉
Summer came and Leon turned 6 months, which meant we could switch the cot for the seat. Did it all myself and must admit – very easy. The instructions are so simple to follow and I really enjoyed zipping and clasping everything. Another glimpse at how clever and secure the whole Joolz Day system is. I was so excited to have him in the seat for some reason. I guess it was about more mobility and better views for him and easier access to him for me. He loved the seat right away. The frame is not too low either, so he was elevated, super comfortable and all of a sudden was able to see so much more. Strolls in the parks and the city became so fun for us both.
Size & Quality
We moved back to the city from countryside at the end of September and our Joolz Day3 is still my first choice when it comes to city strolling. Granted, the system is probably not ideal if you live above ground floor (like us), but if you’re able to get help bring it up and down or can keep it in the car for ease (we do), then why not. It’s definitely a bit buliker than your one-hand-fold-away strollers, but if you can compromise on weight and size for it’s the quality and protection then I’d chose the latter all the way.
I mentioned accessories already and there are many wonderful aiding products for your stroller at Joolz. The best ones for me? Without a doubt this sheepskin polar footmuff and cup holder. The footmuff is SO warm, soft and cosy – as soon as Leon’s gets zipped up in it he falls asleep. I don’t blame him – can I snuggle in there with you buddy? It’s honestly the one product I feel I couldn’t live without in the Scottish winter. No need for 5 different blankets and constant checks to see if he’s warm enough. I 100% know he is.
And then there’s the cup holder… Need I say more? Nothing more enjoyable than a happy baby all cosy and warm napping in his super protective stroller and mum with a large cup of coffee from her favourite cafe.
Thank you Joolz for making our first year so wonderful with your intelligent and super stylish Day3.
