Kolcraft – Contous Options 3 Wheeler Stroller – CLOSED

I was in desperate need of a new stroller.  The umbrella stroller that we were using was killing my back, everything about it was wrong causing an ergonomic nightmare.  I have since received a new Kolcraft Contours Options 3 Wheeler stroller for review and it has been a life (and back) saver.

My Mom takes care of our daughter in our home, so she basically lives with us 5 days a week.  This is great because she is always home to answer the door when products arrive by courier.  Usually she leaves the products at the door for me when I arrive from work.  I was eagerly awaiting the Kolcraft Contours Options 3 Wheeler stroller to arrive so I could take pictures of my husband putting it together to show all of you.   It turns out, my Mother couldn’t contain herself either and took the liberty on herself to put the stroller together while I was at work.  At first, I was a little bit upset, because I really really wanted to show you what the stroller looked like before, during and after.  However, after thinking about it, I realized if my Mom could put this together on her own with an 18 month running around, it’s obviously pretty easy to put together.  Mom said it took less than an hour and the instructions were very easy to follow.

There are so many things I love about the Kolcraft Contours stroller.  I love that the handle hight is at the right spot.  My previous strollers handle was way too low (and I am not a tall person, so it must have been even worse for my husband).  I felt like I was constantly hunching over while pushing the stroller.  The Kolcraft Contours Option 3 Wheeler is the perfect height for me, my husband and everyone else I have asked to push it.  I also like that I can walk with a long stride and my feet do not hit the wheels.  Once again, with my previous stroller, with every step I took, the front of my toes touched the bar between the wheels.  I would then compensate by taking shorter strides.  I am only 5’2″ so my stride isn’t that long, so once again, imagine the hassle my husband had while using the stroller.  I also love the large 3 wheels that the stroller has.  This stroller can go anywhere we can.  It takes bumps, grass, rocks –  you name it – really well.  The large wheels just seem to glide over anything, making it really easy to push along.  Another great feature is the large basket under the seat.  The basket is perfect for shopping, I can put my daughters diaper bag and all my shopping bags in the basket without any problem at all.  This basket is even larger than the previous stroller I had (that was way too huge).

I recently took this Kolcraft stroller to Cuba for our vacation.  I am so happy that we decided to bring it.  Although it is larger than an umbrella stroller, it was perfect to bring around the resort and the streets of Varadero.  We were even able to bring this onto the beach.  We just turned the stroller around and dragged it by the back.  It was a little difficult for my husband, but it was way easier than any other stroller with tiny wheels.

Our daughter was able to nap in the stroller while we relaxed at the beach or the pool.  There is a large umbrella that was great for shade, and the seat was easily able to swivel down.  Although the seat isn’t able to fully recline, it leans back in a seated position. There is also the option to fully rotate the seat by simply pushing in 2 buttons, taking the seat off and then turning it around.  I kid you not, it is super simple.   The stroller also came with a car seat attachment that looks just as easy to put together (I would have tested it, but I already passed on my car seat to an expecting Mom).

The Kolcraft Contours stroller also has a very large and easy to access bar for putting on the breaks, and it’s just as easy to flip up the bar with your feet to take the breaks off.  Another great feature are the 2 deep cup holders for the parents and a large center compartment for anything else you would like to carry around (like lip chap or a wallet).

The stroller is easy to fold down and considering its size, it breaks down fairly small and is not too heavy.  The stroller fits just perfectly into our compact size car (Toyota Corolla).   There is even a little bit of space left in the trunk for shopping bags.

Overall, I have really enjoyed the Kolcraft Contours Options 3 Wheeler Stroller.  It is a huge improvement from our previous umbrella stroller.  It’s larger, but I had nearly stopped using my previous stroller because it was so uncomfortable.  I hadn’t realized how important it was to have a quality stroller until I started using the Kolcraft Contours.  I use this stroller all the time and it remains comfortable for both myself and my daughter.  A stroller is meant to be used, and we get plenty of use with this stroller.
