2011 Zooper Tango Review and 2 GIVEAWAYS!!!!! ~ CLOSED


Before we get started....have you entered the WubbaNub Giveaway????


WARNING: This product has SO MANY awesome features that I went a little photo CRAZY!!!





For many parents picking out a stroller is similar to picking out a new car.
You want something that is SAFE and COMFORTABLE and looks pretty. Well, maybe “looks pretty” isn’t a deal breaker but you have to admit you want something that looks stylish and not like you’re pushing around a shopping cart.

I personally spent HOURS and HOURS online comparing features from this stroller and that stroller. My main concern was it being compatible with the car seat we already had from my 2.5 year old. The other feature I wanted was a one-handed seat recline option. For the past few years I’ve had a stroller that had a strap system for the recline and I can’t tell you how many times I cursed that thing when even with both hands I couldn’t get it to recline or sit up! UGH!

I was ECSTATIC when I stumbled upon the Zooper website one day. It seemed to have EVERYTHING I was looking for …..AND MORE! And the bonus was it was a far cry from looking like a shopping cart….SWEET!


The moment UPS delivered my new Zooper Tango I just HAD to open the box and put her together….yes…..I’ve determined the Tango is a her. How else would she know ALL the features us ladies WANT and NEED???



Don’t be intimidated by the box….this HUGE box just means it’s almost all put together and all you have to do is snap on the wheels and canopies!! How great is that!!?



Inside the box you’ll find the body of the stroller, all the wheels, the 2 individual canopies (great for when one tot is sleeping and needs shade and the other is wide away!), a foot muff (hoping that I’ll NEVER need that down here in beautiful Florida), a car seat safety strap, sun shade and the cup-holder.



The manual was SUPER easy to read and follow….the pics really helped make it VERY simple to assemble.



Opening the Tango is simple...."unlock" the frame lock from the metal pin, pull up on the main stroller handle while pushing (with your foot) on the step bar that says "step to open"....SUPER EASY!!!


 Putting the wheels and canopies on is a SNAP….no literally….everything just snaps on!!!




Once I got her ;) put together the first thing I tested out was that one-hand seat recline.
BOY, it did NOT disappoint!! I think it should be MANDATORY for all strollers to have this feature! You can be pushing with one hand and reclining with the other….no need to even break stride!



While we are on the subject of one hand, this baby can even be steered with ONE.
Pushing and turning is a breeze as the swivel wheels (that can also be locked to only go straight) make it super easy to move about! Even with both seats occupied!!




While the video doesn't show me using one hand to steer/turn it does show just how EASY and that you don't need much room to get her where you need to go. I was even able to do a full spin (just like in the video) right in the middle of the isles of Target and Michael's ;)

Being 30” wide it fits through standard doorways. I haven’t encountered a doorway yet that it won’t fit thru and I’ve had the Tango out shopping, at doctor’s offices and even in and out of my front door.


Storage on the Tango is OUT OF CONTROL!!!





You’ve got two LARGE “pockets” on the back of each seat that you could easily fit a handful of diapers and wipes in for each kiddo. PLUS there is a HUGE storage compartment under the 2011 stroller that……wait, get this…..opens from the side too just in case you have the seats reclined and DON’T want to wake your sleepy head(s)!




The 2011 Zooper Tango comes STANDARD (as in NO paying EXTRA) with a foot muff (fits over both seats at the same time), cup holder (which I haven’t attached only because I usually have a water bottle and I keep it in one of the DEEP pockets on the back of the seats), car seat strap and sun shield (also haven’t used this yet as the canopies provide PLENTY of coverage for us!).


Speaking of canopies....you've got LOTS of options on how to use them.....

Notice the adjustable legrest....all the way up and zipped is PERFECT for babe to hang out in so she doesn't slide out!





The armrest in the front can be on or off....this applies to BOTH sides! 





This is NOT an illusion....YES on top of EVERYTHING else she can stand up on her own!!!





If you are NOT in the market for a double stroller, Zooper also makes single strollers. And I must imagine they are just as fabulous as the 2011 Zooper Tango! Visit the NEW Zooper Website to see a full line of their strollers.

Here's a comparison chart:

Here are a few shots of us showing off testing out our new ride.....

EVERY TIME we have the Tango out we get a compliment on how nice of a stroller it is!


Go Rays!
We went to fan fest and Miss Tango even got wheeled around on the field and tested out the NEW astro turf!

Now, the manual says do NOT hang anything from the push handle BUT being a creature of habit and one that LOVES my mommy clips, that is where I hang my diaper bag and shopping bags. I am very cautious as to NOT overload the handle with weight which would throw-off the weight distribution causing it to possibly tumble over. I don't hang ANYTHING on the handle until the kiddos are in and take the everything off the handle before unloading them!



You can find a list of authorized Zooper dealers on their site but in pure Steals, Deals and Heels fashion I looked around the internet and found the BEST price for you!! :)
