Holiday Gift Guide 2013 | Joovy Single Cocoon Stroller Review

Joovy Single Cocoon Stroller

The Joovy Cocoon has been on my wish list for some time. I spend quite a bit of time outdoors with my children (unfortunately it’s snowy here in Canada right now!) and I wanted to have a stroller that would be comfortable for them but yet protect them from the elements.

Out of the box there is a little assembly required. It took me about 10 min with the help of the easy to follow instructions to put the Cocoon together. The tires will need to be inflated when you receive it, but they are easy to slip on with a quick release for fast and easy assembly and removal. This is super practical for when you need to store it or put in the back of a car to take along with you. Popping the cocoon up was the most fuss I had with the assembly, which was only because I read the instruction wrong and I was trying to do it in the wrong order.

Once fully assembled the first thing I noticed was the nice large size windows for your child to see out of on both sides and in front of them. Your child enters through the large front window. There is a large mesh that zips the front window closed. The mesh is nice in the summer when the bugs are out and you don’t want them bothering your kiddo but yet warm enough that you want fresh air inside for your child to enjoy. On the not so nice days that are windy or even raining there is a vinyl window that you can bring down to keep the bad weather out of the stroller. You child rides safely inside thanks to the 5 point harness that is fully adjustable at the shoulders to accommodate your child’s height.

Both my 3 year old and my 5 year old love riding in it. Whether it’s my 3 or 5 year old inside there is lots of leg room for them. There are 2 little pockets inside for them to bring along a couple toys or a drink and a snack. If your child is smaller then it is a great place to store a extra soother or your keys or even a cell phone.

The back of the stroller has a amazing storage space for when I make a trip to the store and buy some groceries. If all my groceries don’t fit in the back there is ample room to put some in the front at my kids feet (note don’t place the bread or eggs at your child’s feet lol). I also use the back compartment for blankets, jackets, gloves, or hats. There is also a peek a boo window in the top to see you child while on the move.

The front wheels are on a swivel which I find gives me easy and smooth maneuverability. The rear wheels are a large 20″ pneumatic tire which makes for a smooth comfortable ride. I find the stroller is amazingly easy to push… you hardly have to push at all.

The handle bar I LOVE. Being taller I find some handles are too short. The Cocoon has you covered whether your taller or shorter because you can easily turn it around to make it shorter or flip it over again to make it taller. Thank you Joovy!

The single Joovy Cocoon will carry a child up to 60 pounds. My 5 year old is only 43 pounds, so he will be able to fit in it for many more years.

The Cocoon folds up pretty compact for the size of the stroller. I can fit the wheels and handle bar inside the stroller when folded up and zipper it closed to keep everything together. That way you don’t have to search your trunk for where you put those tires.

The brakes for both tires are not connected (meaning they don’t function together). To put the brakes on both tires you do have to manually put each one on individually. I don’t find this is a hindrance or a pain at all. I find that the brakes are in a place that you can put them on quickly and easily with your foot without issue.

This is a great multi functional stroller. It is a seriously amazing stroller for everyday out and abouts. I have to add that the stroller does fit through doors with ease.

For more versatility you can purchase the fixed jogging wheel (sold seperately) for the joggers or you can also purchase the bicycle trailer attachment for the bikers. This is easily 3 strollers in 1!

I personally will be purchasing the bicycle trailer attachment so I can get rid of my other bike trailer and have fewer pieces of equipment to store. At $499.99 I think it’s worth every penny for what you are getting. I very highly would recommend this stroller to my friends. Head over to and start shopping!

  1. This is the first time that I’ve seen a single stroller for a bike. How cool!

  2. Rebecca Parsons says

    Wow this is super nice. We live in a town where they have a lot of bike trails and they go all over the state. This would be great taking the kids in when we walk the trails.

  3. Julie Wood says

    I have heard of Joovy, and this the stroller is a really nice one. My sister could use this stroller for my nephew. I like that it is large and roomy for the child. I will have to let my sister know about this awesome stroller.

  4. I appreciate your detailed review and images of the Joovy Single Cocoon Stroller. It looks like a great product and is definitely worth some further research. Thank you for sharing!

    i want one of these for my dogs, been looking for a big stroller that will hold my 3 small girls when we go to dog events, b/c they all want me to carry them

  7. Sarah L says

    That is one groovy stroller! Wish they’d had it 40 years ago when I could have used it.

  8. joanna garcia says

    omg i love this and i would get the bike attachment too! hopefully they have for double seating too

  9. Tara says

    This makes me feel a bit claustrophobic looking at it. It would probably make a good bike attachment though.

  10. Stacey Roberson says

    This is definitely on our Christmas list. We would purchase the bicycle attachment for taking our little guy on bike rides. Roomy, too!

  11. Teresa Honores says
