When your baby becomes a toddler, they won’t be as dependent on their stroller as they once were. Your little one will suddenly become far more independent and incredibly inquisitive.
They’ll want to walk, run, crawl, climb and explore – wherever they are. However, their little legs will still get tired every now and then, so, it’s always handy to keep your stroller nearby.
Choosing the best stroller for your toddler can be tricky, but you’ve come to the right place. In this blog, we’re going to help you choose the best stroller for your little one.
Choosing The Best Stroller For Your Toddler: What To Consider?
Toddlers have different needs in comparison to newborn babies. When choosing a stroller for your toddler, there are things to consider that you may not have thought about when choosing a stroller for your newborn baby. We’ve highlighted the key factors you should consider before choosing a stroller:
Unlike babies, toddlers are heavy to carry and heavy to push. So, the last thing you want is a bulky stroller. When it comes to choosing the perfect stroller for your toddler, you need a stroller that’s lightweight yet durable.
Ease Of Storage
When you have a toddler, you will notice you don’t rely on your stroller as much as you did when you had a newborn. It’s essential that you choose a stroller that’s compact and easy to store.
More often than not, your toddler will want to be on their feet. But there’ll be times when you need the stroller; particularly when you’re out of the house. When you’re enjoying a day out, on holiday, on a shopping trip or visiting grandparents, the stroller becomes the perfect place for your little one to rest their legs and have a nap.
All our stylish strollers are compact when folded, can be stored away neatly and will fit into even the smallest of car boots. The J-Tourer folds small, packs neatly into its bag and fits in the overhead compartment on most airlines!
The J-Carbon, J-Spirit and the J-Tourer also have a one-hand fold feature, meaning the stroller can be easily folded with one hand (when the other hand is trying to hold onto a curious toddler!).
Forward Facing Seat
As your toddler learns and grows, they will want to take in the world around them. Nurture your child’s curiosity by choosing a stroller with a front-facing seat. Every one of the gorgeous strollers in the JUNIORJONES range has a forward facing seat unit or have the option to be forward facing.
Easy To Manoeuvre
Pushing a toddler is a little more challenging than pushing a baby. Mainly because they weigh more but also because they like to wriggle and move. So, when choosing the best stroller for your toddler, you should consider the manoeuvrability of the stroller.
The JUNIORJONES strollers are fitted with Tru-Ride 2 technology as standard. This revolutionary technology gives you sharper handling and better manoeuvrability. It makes the ride incredibly smooth, which is ideal for a sleeping toddler and reduces pushing fatigue, which is ideal for mum or dad.
Just like babies, toddlers need plenty of sleep. After lots of crawling and running around, your toddler will benefit from a nap every now and then, which is why your stroller should have a comfortable, reclining seat.
The JUNIORJONES strollers are designed with luxuriously soft fabrics to provide the utmost comfort for your little one. Each stroller in the range has multiple seat recline positions, making it perfect for those much-needed naps.
Many strollers are designed for babies only and have a weight limit unsuitable for toddlers. When it comes to keeping your child safe and secure, you need a stroller that’s designed for babies and toddlers of all ages and weights.
Each of the strollers in the JUNIORJONES range has a weight limit of 22kg, meaning they’re perfectly safe and suitable for toddlers and young children. Plus, you can put your changing bag, handbag and other items in the basket of the stroller when you’re pushing your toddler without worrying about the weight limit.
Toddlers grow so quickly; it can be hard to keep up! When choosing the right stroller for your toddler, you should consider the adjustable features. Does the harness adjust? Can the height of the hood be adjusted as your baby grows taller? Is there a rain cover for those wet weather days?
The premium J-Carbon, stylist J-Spirit, swift J-Cub and ultra-compact J-Tourer feature 3 harness height adjust positions, which can be easily altered. The J-Carbon and J-Spirit also have the option to adjust the height of the hood and the J-Tourer features an adjustable leg rest.
There are also a number of useful features in the JUNIORJONES range, such as the Rain Cover (which is included with every stroller), the Universal Sun Canopy and Universal Insect Net.
Bumper bars are a great addition to any stroller and provide a safe play to attach toys and stroller books to keep your toddler occupied when you’re on the go.
For toddlers who have just found their feet and don’t like being sat in their stroller, attaching toys and books to the bumper bar is an excellent way to keep them entertained and happy. Our innovative J-Carbon features an ergonomic bumper bar for the comfort of your baby.
