In an ideal world, you only want to buy one stroller, but most parents find buying an extra stroller to store at their parent’s house is very convenient. Lots of families help each other out with childcare so having a spare stroller to stash at someone else’s house is ideal. Here are some top reasons to buy strollers for grandparents, and suitable strollers from the JUNIORJONES range.
Why Buy Separate Strollers for Grandparents?
In many families, Grandparents play a huge role in helping raise children; they might routinely offer childcare whilst you are at work, or just enjoy having their grandkids round for sleepovers, or taking them out on day trips. However much involvement your parents have, they’re going to need a stroller when they’re caring for your young child or baby.
Grandparents who look after children on a weekly basis will still want a stroller to get out and about, do their chores or go shopping. Even for occasional trips, such a day out, a stroller will be needed.
Of course, you will already have a stroller for your child, but there is no denying it’s much easier to purchase an additional stroller to leave with your parents. Even though our strollers are fast and easy to fold and pop into a car, it’s still an extra chore you could do without. An additional stroller can be stored at your parents, leaving you to just drop off your child and any other bits and pieces they may need for the day, or a sleepover.
If your child is very young, you may need to pack larger items, such as bottle warmers or sleeping cots, so having to pack up your stroller too can leave you with a real handful!
Storing a stroller with Grandparents is just more convenient and saves you time.
It’s not just Grandparents either, instead, you may rely on an Aunt, sibling or friend for childcare. Whoever helps care for your baby will benefit from having their own stroller.
What Strollers Are Best for Grandparents?
You might have already found your perfect stroller, such as the luxurious J-CARBON, but for grandparents or the person who will be caring for your child on a regular basis, you may want a more affordable model.
There is also size and weight to consider; Grandparents may want a lighter stroller. Our strollers are all extremely easy to push but our models vary in weight. Luckily, all our stroller feature one-handed folding, making them very easy to fold. They’re also free-standing once folded.
Our more compact models are great for storing away – if grandparents aren’t going to be using their stroller every day, they will need to be able to store the stroller away somewhere. Our most compact models are ideal for storing in a cupboard or wardrobe.
Our recommended stroller for Grandparents is the stylish J-CUB. Designed as a compact city stroller, the J-CUB is extremely light (8.4kg) and is slim enough to even fit through turnstiles such as those on the London Underground. We designed this model to be able to cope with busy environments, such as supermarkets yet be versatile enough to use for small babies to older children.
Suitable from birth, the J-CUB can accommodate a child up to 22kg. The removable hood will give bigger children more room and the adjustable handlebar can be easily changed to suit the person doing the pushing.
Fast to fold, the J-CUB will easily fit into your average household cupboard, under the stairs or underneath a bed.
Another great option for Grandparents is our travel stroller, the J-TOURER. The lightest stroller in our range, the J-TOURER really shines when it comes to travel due to its extra small folded size and storability.
Suitable even for new-borns, the J-TOURER would make a convenient stroller for Grandparents as it can be stored almost anywhere! We designed it to be small enough to fit in an overhead aeroplane locker, so the stroller can be comfortably stored in your average household.
Our smallest stroller is also pretty snazzy looking and has many of the same great features as our other models; such as TRU-RIDE technology, all-around suspension and a 22kg weight limit.
The stroller weighs just 7.3kg making it very easy to handle and pick up, even for older folks who may have limited mobility.
You can find both recommended strollers in our shop, alongside a range of accessories.
