BOB Revolution Stroller (Single and Duallie)

The Revolution BOB Stroller has become one of the most sought-after strollers of all time - especially for parents who like to stay in shape...

A number of parents of babies and toddlers hesitate to purchase a BOB Revolution stroller due to its price tag. (Some merchants can charge $400 or more for a BOB Revolution single stroller and $600 or more for a Duallie version.) However, based on numerous consumer reviews written by parents, these strollers are worth every penny they cost and more.

What makes the BOB Revolution stroller so special?

Safety - The BOB Revolution stroller is a three-wheeler stroller with excellent balance to prevent tipping, a feature other three-wheel strollers lack. It also has easy-locking rear-wheel brakes that are reliable and the entire BOB Revolution stroller is made with extremely high-quality construction. A five-point padded harness holds baby firmly (but comfortably) in place so baby stays secure during the ride.

Comfort - With excellent suspension, rides in the BOB Revolution stroller for babies and toddlers are smooth and comfortable, often resulting in a napping babe as opposed to an irritated one. (This is the favorite feature for some parents.) Even with jogging, the ride is a breeze. This extra-comfortable ride is made possible by an adjustable suspension that allows for different settings for different weights of children.

Convenience - The BOB Revolution stroller folds easily with a single hand, folds quite compactly and is quite a bit lighter than other brands of strollers, which makes this stroller easy to lift and store away. The Revolution also maneuvers much more precisely and easily than other strollers, letting parents get around anywhere, even the tightest of corners. This can make activities such as strolling through stores in a mall much simpler and more enjoyable.

A Plus for Jogger Parents - The handling of the BOB Revolution stroller is excellent, which results in a better workout for mom and dad.

More Features that Parents Love - There are some other reasons why parents rave over the BOB Revolution stroller including its style, storage space and long-term money savings. (The BOB Revolution stroller accommodates a child weighing up to 70 pounds, so the stroller doesn't need to be changed out for a new one as children get older and heavier.)

Safety Note - Babies should be at least six to eight weeks of age before riding in a BOB Revolution stroller (a car seat can be used with the stroller for infants, extra head support may be needed). And, a baby should be six to eight months old before using it for jogging workouts.

Is a BOB Revolution stroller worth the cash that parents are paying for it? That depends on a number of things but generally speaking - if you ask the parents who have one - the answer is a resounding "Yes!"

Shopping Information: The price tag from some merchants is higher than with others - in fact there are discount resources that not only provide the best merchant prices possible online but also offer some great warrantees for BOB Revolution strollers, excellent service and free shipping to boot!
