Two Peas in a Pod
Ever since we got the Baby Jogger Pod, the kids can't keep their hands off it.
They insisted we take it to the fireworks display, even though we already had another stroller.
Which was OK anyway, since we normally have a gaggle of children trailing along, wherever we go. So it's always nice to have an extra seat, for tired little legs.
Not to mention that the "glow in the dark" reflective material is a great idea at night for our night strolls.
StrollerPrince 2.0 calls the Pod "His little house." And the kids like riding in it with the dark bug net/sunscreen zipped up. I guess it creates a "womb-like" experience.
Another thing they like about it is the very high weight limit--100 pounds! So you can cram a couple of older kids in there. They might look squished, but they don't complain.
And you can still even push it, without straining your wrists!
The Pod does have two harnesses, for two children. But, you can re-thread it to make a single center harness, if you only have one rider. Ingenious!
You can make the handle higher or lower, by flipping it around. So tall parents don't have to stoop. and short parents don't have to put their arms in an awkward position. Neither is a very fun way to push a stroller!
As you can see, the bench seat is nicely padded, with a breathable fabric. There are also side mesh cupholders, see it there, in black? No recline, though. So your child has to be really tired to nap.
The mesh above the seat makes it more comfortable for a child wearing a helmet--which is a must if you are biking.
The addition of the handbrake is great. Especially going downhill, when momentum builds with the weight of two children.
The side windows open, to allow more air flow. They provide nice rain protection, and there is an optional front rain/wind cover you can get. So now you can stroll/jog/bike 365 days a year!
Here is the rear storage compartment, with a toggle closure. It actually unzips on each side, if you need more room.
Speaking of closing, the Pod has the famous "one hand yank up the strap to fold", which has made Baby Jogger about the most popular stroller in the universe!
Of course, the versatility on it is amazing. We use it mostly in stroller mode. That features two 8"inch rubber wheels,
and 20" rear air tires.
But you can use it as a jogger (not for little babies, of course) by easily switching out to the 16" front air tire. And if you want to attach it to a bike, switch out the front to the trailer tow bar.
Just remember that when you order the Pod, you are only getting the chassis, and rear tires. You have to order the front wheels or trailer tow bar separately. But whichever kit you choose, grab it while the weather is still nice, and enjoy the rest of this glorious summer!
