Great Strollers for the Summer

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestShare



Memorial weekend is the unofficial start to summer which means more time outdoors! Whether your summer plans include a trip to the zoo, an amusement park, a vacation to Disney World or exploring your own city, one thing is for sure – if you have a little one you need an umbrella stroller.

Umbrella strollers are lightweight and compact so they fit in any vehicle. Our Kolcraft Tour Sport Reclining Umbrella stroller is perfect for summer trips.

Some features we love:
• Parent cup holder
• Storage bag that holds all your gear
• Reclining padded seat back
• Sun-shade canopy that adjusts to block the sun

Kolcraft is giving one lucky reader this stroller for their summer adventures! All you have to do to enter is:
• Fan us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter (if you do both, you get two entries!)
• Leave a comment on our blog that you follow us on Facebook or Twitter and tell us where you want to use this stroller this summer.

The winner will be chosen on Tuesday June 1st by Random.org

    Hi!! I follow Kolcraft both on facebook (as Danielle P.) and on twitter (as @babydee1985). If I was lucky enough to be the winner of this stylish, chic & super-convenient stroller I would use it absolutely EVERYWHERE I go in the summer as it is lightweight and small enough to take with me everyday!! =)

    Thanks for the chance!!

    I am a Facebook fan, or I like you on Facebook….or whatever the kids are calling it these days…. =)

    We live on a very busy street and have a tiny yard out by the road, so we pretty much go to the park every single day. Sometimes we make 2 or 3 trips. Would love this stroller, especially because it would be such a treat for mommy to have a cupholder on an umbrella stroller (just sayin’)….

    Where would I want to use this stroller? Where wouldn’t I want to use it is the question! I would use this all the time, the stroller I am currently using is very big and bulky and takes up a lot of trunk space. This would be perfect because it is lightweight and still has all the features of a regular stroller. The cup holder for my water bottle is a huge bonus!

  19. Gretchen Erickson May 27, 2010 at 8:19 am #

    I’m a Facebook fan. We plan to visit the Aquarium of the Pacific and the San Diego Zoo this summer. Our current stroller is HUGE and barely fits in my trunk. This stroller would certainly come in handy. Thanks for the oppportunity! :-)

  20. colette May 27, 2010 at 8:22 am #

    I am soooo in need of a new umbrella stroller. I had two and they both just left for the dump! One had a bent wheel and was unpushable and one of my kids cut the straps of the other. I absolutely love Kolcraft strollers. I have the Options and I LOVE it!

    I am a fan on Facebook. We have a very busy summer coming up. Plans for the local zoos, aquariums, parks, etc. As well as T-Ball and swimming lessons for my oldest. This would be perfect for the little one to hang out in during all of them. THe only umbrella we currently have is a double and our oldest prefers to walk, so we don’t use it often.

  24. Amanda May 27, 2010 at 8:31 am #

    I already own a Kolcraft Contours 3 wheeler, which I just love for things like trips to the zoo and walks around the neighborhood. But I really need a smaller, more compact stroller for quick trips to the store and our city’s annual 4th of July celebration where there are a lot of people and not room for a big stroller. I’m sure I would bring it many more places this summer too and I’m sure I’d love it based on how I feel about the Kolcraft stroller we already own!

    I would love to use your Kolcraft Stroller at the zoo this summer. They have rentals there but they are always full of germs and very uncomfortable for my daughter. We walk around for quite a while there so your built in sun-shade canopy would come in very handy! And lets not forget how stylish we would be, lol. I’m sure the owls would be hooting for us :) Thanks for the chance to win your Kolcraft Tour Sport Reclining Umbrella Stroller.

    I would love to have a decent stroller that doesn’t take up a ton of space, but still has some storage. My daughter isn’t a huge fan of the stroller we normally use as it doesn’t sit upright enough.
