scoot & giveaway

When I found out I was pregnant with Sloane, I had these big dreams of heading outdoors and doing some fun activities with both kids. It’s not as easy as I had imagined, and with a 2 1/2 year old to chase around while soothing a newborn baby that dream of mine wasn’t so and reality started to show up. It’s hard being a mom, that’s something that I made obvious the other day. It’s a struggle and a joy all rolled into one pretty yet messy ball. While there is no easy button in life, there are things out there that actually can help make life easy.

I was excited to be able to review the Stokke Scoot. We own and love the Stokke Xplory and how much we like it as seen here, here, and here. As soon as we got it in the mail we headed to the park to test it out and burn some energy.

Something that Luke and I thought would be fun is to give you both our perspectives after testing the Stokke Scoot out. So many times when I’m researching products and trying to decide what’s the best item for us as a family, I get overwhelmed with reviews because I have to also consider my husband. And as we’ve learned as parents, I may love a product and he may not care for it at all.Let me tell you, I have tested  A LOT of strollers in the past three years. I get that it’s frustrating buying a stroller and not loving it. This review is from us, and it’s honest!

Luke: As a father of two, the first quality I look for in any stroller is practicality, and right out of the box the Scoot has it. The assembly only took a couple of minutes and really did not require instructions, which is definitely a plus for me. Another great feature of the stroller is the ease at which it opens and closes for use and storage. In one easy motion, by pushing and sliding a button, you can close the stroller for storage or open it up for use. The Stokke Scoot is not very long, allowing for easy maneuvering in tight spaces. Also, being 6’4″ this stroller adjusts high enough to allow me to push without benign my back, which has been an issue for me with many other strollers. The practicality and great design make this stroller a valuable assets to anyone with children.

Nicole: One of the most important qualities I look for in a stroller is if it is easy to open and close. I get so frustrated when I’m in the parking lot trying to open a stroller. The Stokke Scoot definitely meets my criteria and I was able to open and close it with one hand (bonus for me). This stroller is lightweight but sturdy. The storage basket is amazing and a plus that there is actually a cup holder! I like that even though this stroller is compact, there are still the features that I look for in larger strollers. You have the option to recline the seat in a ‘rest’ position which will be perfect for park outings when nap time hits. I also like that the seat can face in or out, we prefer it facing inward, but Liam does prefer it facing outward. The visor on this stroller is packed full of amenities, and I can tell that the fabric will be easy to clean. Luke and I always struggle with finding strollers that are made for us taller folk, and we really appreciate the adjustable handle that is actually comfortable and ideal for someone over 6 feet tall. Not only was Liam comfortable in this stroller, but in the reclined position, I can use it for Sloane as a newborn. This stroller will be my go to for her as she grows.

    Love the look of this stroller! We are having our second and are in need of a new one, but I am being so picky this time around. We have used several with our first and not really loved any of them. If I won, it would be a toss up between the bright red and the black melange. We are having a boy, but would want something gender neutral for any future babies.:)

    • Those are great color choices Lauren. I was very picky too when stroller shopping this time around. I like that Liam and Sloane can both sit in this stroller, and that it’s light weight so I can haul it easily! Good luck.

  2. I’m pregnant with my first, and this wold be a great stroller to get us started!

  3. Love the stroller. I”m pregnant with baby #2 which will be due July of next year and I am so over the big bulky strollers! Fun giveaway!

    • AHHHH!!! Congrats on #2!!! Agree, I’m over bulky strollers and it’s my mission to show you the best on the market! :)

  4. Love this stroller, it would be great for #3 expected in the spring. If I am lucky enough to win, I would choose red.

  5. This stroller looks like a dream. We live in a city (without a car), so I’m always having to open and close the stroller to get on and off buses and subways. If I won, I would probably choose Red, but I’m not totally ruling out the Urban Blue!

    • We threw away our umbrella stroller when we got this one! It’s more practical and definitely something that you can open and close with one arm, while holding a little one in the other arm. Isn’t that Urban Blue something spectacular! :)

  6. I’m about 12 weeks along with my first child and I couldn’t be more over the moon! After spotting the Stokke Scoot on Nordstrom, I knew it was the stroller I wanted! I can’t decide between the beige and the navy! I love the sleek look :)

  7. I would choose Beige Melange. I’m expecting my first child and am already 20 weeks along! This is such a great giveaway! xo

  8. I love the urban blue! I am
    In need of a new stroller! I hated my one I had with out first !

  9. Kara Kieran says:

  26. Black Melange :)

  27. i want black melange pls!

  28. I love the Dark Navy! We’re pregnant with our first and have an EXTREMELY old second hand stroller that just doesn’t work that well. It’s always decided to take sudden detours off the sidewalk which is both annoying and potentially hazardous! This stroller is beautiful and I love the versatility of it!

  29. Black Melange is my favorite.

  30. Black Melange

  31. I think I would have to choose between the beige melange and the black melange. They are both gorgeous!

  32. Erin Young says:

    i would pick black melange

  33. Cortney Tackett (Callen's Closet) says:

    I would pick either the black melange or dark navy. I really love that this has a reversible seat! My son hates not being able to see so this is perfect. Most of the time I baby wear since he hates being in our stroller. I wish I would have known that strollers came with reversible seats before I bought this one or I definitely would have gotten one with that feature!

  34. Cortney Tackett (Callen's Closet) says:

    I would get the blank melange or dark navy I think. I really love that this has a reversible seat. My son hates our current stroller for the fact that he can’t see me. I wish I would have known that they made strollers with reversible seats before I bought my current one!!

  35. I’d pick the urban blue for my boys! (One is two, the other due in January)
