Kolcraft Cloud Umbrella Stroller

Sample received for review. All opinions are my own.

I currently own an everyday, all terrain stroller, and as much as I love it I find that it really does not work for every situation. Now that my youngest is a toddler, our needs have changed as well. I was very much in need of a lightweight and compact stroller. I found one in the Kolcraft Cloud.

Parts

When I received the Cloud umbrella stroller it required some assembly. It was pretty simple and in the end I did not need to use any tools.

Including the time it took me to read the instructions, it only took about 15 minutes to assemble. I did find that some of the photos used in the instructions were a little dark and hard to see what was being shown, but in the end I had no trouble putting it together.

cup holder

The Kolcraft Cloud has some great bonus features for an umbrella stroller. For starters, the parent cupholder. I am a dedicated tea drinker. It’s not too often I use a stroller and don’t need the cupholder.

I love this feature.

roll up back

Another thing I love about the stroller is the roll-up seat back. The whole back of the seat rolls up out of the way and leaves a mesh back for ventilation on a warm day. It’s easy to do and only takes a few seconds, but will go a long way for the comfort of my kids.

2 and 5 year old comparison

Both my 2-year-old and 5-year-old tried out the stroller because it can accommodate children up to 40lbs.

It pushed alright with each kid and we could still use the canopy. There are definitely times when it ends up being the older one who needs a break from walking and catches a ride in the stroller while the younger one wants to walk. It was a relief to me that I could use it for either one.

Compact fold

This stroller weighs in at less than 10lbs, folds up really compact and has a locking clip to keep it folded.

The Cloud is a great option to fit in any vehicle and use for shopping and travel. If you have ever flown with young kids, you know that a stroller is a must. The Cloud will work well to get us through the airport and when it comes time to board the plane the size and weight will make life easy there, too.

Storage basket

There is a small basket under the stroller that is typical of an umbrella stroller. You will not fit a diaper bag in there but there’s plenty of room for the essentials on a quick trip.

Be aware that like most umbrella strollers, the Cloud does not recline and it does not have a three point harness. Because of this, the Cloud is not a good choice for a young infant, but works great for older babies and toddlers.

The handles are well padded and unlike some other umbrella strollers I have tried, they are tall enough to be comfortable to push.

Canopy position

The sun canopy is amazing on this stroller. There are several different options for positioning from tucked right back to pulled all the way down in front of the child. It really blocks the sun no matter what time of day. This is a feature I have had a hard time finding on other lightweight strollers.

colors

The Kolcraft Cloud is available in two color options, Spring Green and Scarlett Red. You can purchase one at Walmart.com for $26.95. A great price for a stroller with many extra features making it affordable even on a budget.
