We have used the Balloon since November and LOVE it! It can be used with my infant as a travel system with the included car seat adapters, or he can face me in bassinet mode with a 160 degree recline on the seat. No need to take the seat off when he's ready to turn around and face away from me; the pushbar simply flips over! The Balloon isn't just great for littles though, my 4.5 year old rides comfortably in it with room to spare. There is plenty of room in the basket for essentials for the day, and the front wheels can be swivel or locked for maneuvering rougher terrains such as playground mulch. The Balloon is uber lightweight at just 12 pounds! It has a one handed fold that makes heads turn in the parking lot and conveniently can stand folded by itself while you load kiddos in the car. Oh, and the canopy is HUGE and UV 50! Talk about great protection from the elements! My three year old liked it while at the museum because it gave her the opportunity to pull it completely over the seat so she could 'check out', rest up a bit and recharge from the sensory overload of the day. That was a great trip to test the Balloon because we wound up using it with our 8 month old, 3 year old, 4.5 year old, and the 6 year old even sat in at for a while to rest her feet. Seriously, this stroller pack a lot of bang for your buck!!

We have used this product for almost a month now and our 11 month old loves it. The large canopy is great and the bassinet feature is a godsend when he decides it's time for a nap. I like the reversible handle although it's hard to walk normally this way without kicking the wheels. Woke him numerous times after standing on the wheels :-/ It is lightweight and very easy to fold and unfold one handed. I have two issues with this stroller so far. 1. The retaining net for his feet is already starting to tear away from the elastic, 2. The steering is very difficult on smooth surfaces. The wheels refuse to swivel properly and usually get locked sideways for a few seconds before they finally turn. This is annoying and is also causing the front wheels to wear excessively. They seem to work fine on pavement and surfaces with a little more texture to them. I do like this stroller but know when we go to mall that I'm going to be cussing it by the end of the trip. I would recommend this stroller because I like the other great features but bear in mind that you may not be as forgiving as me and the points I have raised may be a deal breaker for you.

Just ok

By Dtxlapmom

from Wichita, KS, United States

Comments about Joovy Balloon Stroller - Blue:

We looked at a lot of strollers. We needed something compact and preferred the light weight. It holds our car seat very well and is easy to fold and unfold. However, I am very disappointed at the way it "drives." The wheels are constantly getting stuck in a turn position and baby gets fussy when he rides in it without the car seat as you can really feel every bump.

      Comments about Joovy Balloon Stroller - Blue:

      Joovy should be embarrassed. Not worth a dime. Handlebar too low & you'll constantly kick the back wheels, I'm only 5' 6" & have this issue. Love the idea of a reversible stroller, but only it it's steerable in both directions, this one is not. Flimsy, so hard to steer, don't even consider trying to shop with this thing. Bottom line, don't waste your $ like I did. Find another brand that wouldn't put out a product like this. I mean, does anyone at Joovy have a baby??!! They definitely didn't test this before putting on market.

      Absolutely love!!

      By gigi

      from Lake Placid, FL, United States

      Comments about Joovy Balloon Stroller - Blue:

      I bought this stroller when my granddaughter visits. Best decision ever. I love it and so does she. Love love love the color. And the comfy cushy seat is awesome. The seat lays down flat just like a bed for those naps on the go. And I love the fact that the handle reverses so I can see her face. It's lightweight which is great and the steering and turning is so easy. I will defenitely recommend this stroller to others.

      Not Compact; Not "Universal"

      By AKsarah

      from Anchorage, AK

      Comments about Joovy Balloon Stroller - Blue:

      Although very lightweight, the Balloon is surprisingly not compact when in the folded position. It *barely* fits in the trunk of our Subaru and does not fit in many standard sedans. Also, we were extremely disappointed that the advertised "universal" car seat adaptor actually only works with certain models from a few brands. It does not work with our Maxi Cosi car seat. Because of these two flaws, our Balloon cannot be used as a stroller to toss in the car for running errands, as we had hoped. We do like that the Balloon is lightweight and the large canopy provides more coverage than most. The reversible handle feature is creative, but as many other reviewers have mentioned, it is hard to steer when in the reversed (baby facing pusher) position. In fact, the stroller is a little difficult for us to push in either position because it definitely is not designed for tall pushers! The handlebar is low and our feet always kick the back wheel bar. An adjustable handlebar and four swiveling/locking wheels would make this stroller significantly more practical. Because this is not our toss-in-the-back stroller for errands, it hasn't gotten a ton of use. We now have a larger, more rugged jogger for long walks (the Bumbleride Indie) and a super compact car seat base for errands (the Maxi Taxi). Despite that we've only gone on fewer than 10 walks with our Balloon, it is already showing some significant wear and tear on the wheels. The foot rest is also difficult to adjust to infant-mode and ours broke on the first use.

      The New Balloon Wheels ROCK!

      By Ashley

      from Dallas, TX, United States

      Comments about Joovy Balloon Stroller - Blue:

      We got this stroller back when it first came out. We were so excited because of the huge canopy and fact we could use it with our newborn without a car seat. At first it preformed beautifully. We took it to the grocery store, malls, etc... Then one day we took it to the park and ran it across a grassy field. Thereafter, it would pull or just have difficulty turning in general. We had no idea what was going on and we were pretty upset that our $200 stroller would do this. I looked up a few reviews and saw that Joovy had been sending out new wheels to correct this issue. We really didn't think it would fix the problem, but decided to call since we had no other options. It was a gift and we would have been really embarrassed to attempt to return it. I called and spoke to Jake, a very nice gentleman. He assured that Joovy had recognized what was going on and stated that these new wheels that would be 100% better. Still skeptical, we decided to give it a try. I will tell you, it has been WEEKS and this stroller still preforms like a dream! We have taken it through much more rough terrain than before and we're still able maneuver it with ease. Joovy, props to you for correcting this issue and taking ownership of it. I sincerely doubt other companies would been so responsible.

      Wanted to love it

      By Mom Of Three

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Joovy Balloon Stroller - Blue:

      We were so excited to try out this stroller with all of the cool features. Pros: The canopy is amazing and we can complete encase the baby during naps and the seat cushions are comfy. The stroller is very light and easy to fold. Cons: The structure of the stroller is very flimsy. It felt like it may fall apart at any time our first weekend out with it. You could actually shake the handlebar from side to side and feel it shifting on the frame. The flip handlebar parent facing setting was useless as it was impossible to steer. Steering on the regular setting was also difficult. Lastly, the netting for the infant foothold is ripping at the seams after only one weekend of use. For the price, the quality is very disappointingly poor.

      So light!

      By Jenny

      from Charlotte, NC, United States

      Comments about Joovy Balloon Stroller - Blue:

      We bought this with the purpose of making our beach trip easier. I didn't want to worry about my three year old getting tired so it was just easier to buy a stroller with the intention of her using it once and while. It was so light and easy to pop out of the car that we brought it out wherever we went. It's smooch more than an umbrella stroller. It made it easy to maneuver along the boardwalk and we are now using it home to take our nightly walks.

      Wheels Fixed

      By Rayf

      from Los Angeles, CA, United States

      Comments about Joovy Balloon Stroller - Blue:

      They sent in new wheels and it fixed the problem which most people seems to be having. At first, I did kick the wheels a lot when I reversed the handle but I just had to get used to extending my arm while I push stroller (didn't take long to get used to). Love the fabric, beautifully designed, and reverse handle... Best idea ever! Extra: Babies can lay flat!! I don't have to carry a Carseat 24/7!!!
