The Joovy Groove

joovy groove in blueberryJoovy is a company that always keeps its customers in mind- big and small. The new and improved Joovy Groove is a great example. Joovy recently redesigned their umbrella stroller from the ground up to offer a full set of features for both those who push & those who ride. The Groove offers a very ample seat for an umbrella stroller and a high 55 pound weight limit, which means that even your occasional older rider who needs a spot to rest on that long trip to the zoo will be just as comfy as your preschooler or toddler. The infinite recline to near flat means that comfort can be found for nap time as well. This stroller is rated from 6 mo and up, so it’s not for infants, but it will take you very far once your baby is ready. A very secure 5 point harness with padded strap covers and extendable leg rest means that your child can bee made as comfortable as possible and you can be comfortable as well knowing that even your more accomplished escape artists are secure in this seat. An added bonus, the 600D fabric will withstand abuse of all sorts and clean up nicely as well.

These really should be on all strollers, perfect for drinks, snacks or toys, keeping whatever your child needs securely at hand. Not to leave the big guys out- the back of the canopy offers 2 more mesh pockets and a zippered pouch for happy parents. Another feature that Joovy offers is the huge canopy with a viewing window to keep anxious parents at ease. Personally, this is a feature that Always makes me feel better even when my older children are on board. The basket is well sized for an umbrella stroller and the automatic lock and carry handle add to the convenience of this stroller. The newly designed tires are well sized for an umbrella stroller and offer sealed bearings for a smooth ride.  Also new is frame, which is quite snazzy. It’s rectangular aluminum frame is quite unique looking and my favorite part of this stroller (after those in-seat mesh pockets). As with any umbrella stroller, it offers an easy one handed fold that pops right down to a very compact package. Weighing in at 17 pounds, it’s not the lightest umbrella stroller, but it is comfortable to carry and is a great weight for such a large seat and high weight limit. I can easily fold & carry it with one hand while holding my hefty 2 year old in the other hand.

In use this stroller not only doesn’t disappoint, it exceeded my expectations. It took me seconds to pop on the front wheels, slide the canopy into it’s slots, make a few adjustments and we were off and ready to roll. Out and about, it’s just as effortless. Pushing with one or 2 hands was really easy over every terrain I tested. In fact, those bouncy front wheels did such a good job, that I started pointing the Groove at anything that I though t might stop it and nothing did. There are areas in my neighborhood that have sidewalks that will stop most strollers, but not the Groove. I aimed for broken sidewalks and just popped over, rolled straight through sloggy mud and wet grass without slowing. This stroller was fabulous. My daughter loved it too, especially the green color and the extendable leg rest where she happily rested her feet. At age 2 and 27 pounds, he has plenty of room in the seat, yet the harness adjusted perfectly down to her size. It was also super easy to recline and raise the seat one handed while rolling along, which is usually not the case with strap recline systems. Another great surprise.

The Groove is available in 4 colors Blueberry (a fabulous blue, and my favorite), Greenie, Orangie and Black and retails for $199.99. If you’re looking for an umbrella stroller that will last  with superb features and offers a exceptional value for the price, the Joovy Groove is an amazing option.

Usher’s Ex-Wife Wants To Take Away His Custody Rights; Seeks More Money

It looks like celebrity dad Usher is having some baby mama drama!  Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Foster, mother of his two kids Naviyd and Usher V, is taking him to court in the hopes that a judge will take away his joint custody rights.

Tameka is steaming mad at her ex over several issues, including the fact that he closed her Sak’s Fifth Avenue credit card account after he promised he wouldn’t.  Among the issues in regard to their custody arrangement, Tameka says that he in violation of several of the key pieces:

Usher is required and has failed to:
— get her approval before hiring nannies
— give her first shot to watch the kids when he’s away for more than 8 hours
— allow her to take the kids for 2-weeks in the summer of 2011
— let her have custody of the kids during Christmas break 2010

Usher also promised to pay her $5,000 per month so she could hire her own nanny for the kids, but he reportedly owes her $34,000 worth of payments.

She also wants to increase his child support because he’s making more money now, according to her.  They will appear before a judge on Wednesday to talk about the case.
