The reality of having twins hits me more every day! I’m almost 27½ weeks pregnant and counting down the days till the size of my family increases wit twin baby girls. At this point in my pregnancy, I have invested in most of the essentials must need items on my registry. I must say my list looks much different with twins than when I was expecting my singleton daughter! One of the brand’s on the top of my twin registry list this pregnancy is Joovy. I been fan of their products since my daughter was small and I still have a couple of items from the brand that I used when she was a baby.
Besides selling quality products at a great price, Joovy is known for a high level of service and their emphasis on the importance of family. The brand first started operating as a small family business in 2005, and despite growing internationally they have kept strict control over the production and promotion of their products. You feel this at every level with the Joovy brand and they pride themselves on their outstanding customer service.
Joovy‘s collection of products and accessories has grown to five categories: strollers, feeding, playards, walkers, bikes/trikes/toys and accessories. In these categories, the brand has created some great items for families expecting twins. Two of these, which I placed on my registry list are the Room² and the Twin Roo+ Infant Carseat Frame stroller.
Their are so many reason why the Room² is awesome for families expecting twins. Most retailers don’t take into account that parents with twins can’t use a standard size playard for long. Not only do twins babies need more room to play, but their combined weight soon outweighs the recommended weight restrictions of the product. With Joovy being so connected with families they became aware of these issues and developed the Room², a playard more suitable to families with twins and children close in age. It offers over 10 square feet of floor space and almost 50% more living space than most playards.
The Room² is made of high quality nylon, heavy duty mesh, steel frame & aluminum tubing. It’s very durable, which makes it good to use with multiples from birth to up to 35″. The design is simple-looking, yet modern and the newly released design of Room² comes with larger mesh windows to provide excellent visibility for your babies. The bottom of the playard is also perfect for letting babies sleep in during the day because it comes with a 100% fitted cotton sheet.
Unlike, many playards parents won’t have to go through the frustrating process of getting it back in its travel bag when the comes to dissemble. Our last playard was a true nightmare when it came to taking down! The Room² only took a couple of minutes to dissemble when I tested it out.
- Playard weight: 29.6 lbs.
- Playard Dimensions Folded: 37″H x 10″W x 9.5″L
- Playard Dimensions (set up): 31″H x 39.75″W x 39.75″L
- Maximum Child Height: 35″
To add, the price point on the Room² is very reasonable at $149.99USD. I would be surprised if there is another playard of this quality at the same price in stores at the moment.
Twin Roo+ Infant Carseat Frame stroller.
If you follow my Instagram, you know that my daughter, Ava and I like to stay really busy. We love being out and about with my mom and just doing various things like shopping and spending time together. When the twins get here, I still want to be able to do the things we love one a everyday basis. Understandably, this can be a pretty big challenge for parents of twins. Many twin strollers are huge and bulky. That’s why I’m thankful, Joovy recognized this early on and tried to make transporting two babies less overwhelming with their Twin Roo+ Infant Car Seat Frame stroller.
Believe me when I say their is a reason that the TwinRoo+ is one of the most asked for products by soon-to-be twin parents! If you have searched for a twin stroller you may have noticed it’s very rare to have equal seating for each twin. Additionally, strollers with side-by-side seats often have a hard time getting through doors. The Twin Roo+ solves these problem! It allows babies to sit in the same or opposite direction in their infant car seats so you can give ultimate attention to both babies without the stroller handle or second car seat getting in your way. It’s also easy to get through doors!
- Open Size: 41.5 x 42 x 26 in
- Folded Size: 47.75 x 26 x 10.25 in
- Stroller Weight: 21.6 lbs
- Max Weight: 70 lbs (35 lbs each)
The frame of the Twin Roo+ is not heavy like twin strollers and it easily folds with one hand (with the carseat adapters in place too). Despite not being a full sized twin stroller, it comes with strong front swivel wheel locks, rear wheel brakes, and front wheel suspension. It also has a large parent tray that can hold up to four beverages and a storage basket big enough for a large diaper bag, blankets, toys, and more!
The TwinRoo+ has adaptors for a wide variety of carseat brands. No a lot of stroller companies offer that option, and I love it! The car seat adapters are easy to install with a snap and have a “click-in” functionality with your car seats. To note, the adapters are sold separately and are brand specific.
