My level of excitement was through the roof when I knew my Joolz Geo2 was on its way as I had lusted over this pram for so long the speedy arrival made the experience all the more exiting.
I was surprised by the fact that everything was packaged neatly and easily accessible into one box. Given the fact that the pushchair is so luxuriously large I had expected multiple boxes containing different parts for assembly. This was the first pleasant surprise.
Upon opening the box and scanning the instructions I quickly realised that I did not have to wait for my partner to arrive home from work as I had anticipated ahead of its arrival as the process was extremely straight forward. from pulling all the packaging out of the box to putting the baby in the pram- it was a 20 minute job! Which I was absolutely thrilled with this as with other pushchairs I've tried in the past with my eldest daughter had required not only time but also extra assistance. The fact that I could get going straight away was just fantastic. Time is of the essence when you're a mum.
The colour I had chosen was the Gorgeous Grey in mono configuration, I couldn't be happier with how it looked in person. One of the biggest pros for me is that the basket underneath is very large and perfect for shopping days where you need to keep your hands free and don't have to worry about it you'll fit everything in.
I absolutely love the extendable handle bar. being able to adjust it to suit you personal preference I Like to have it high but my partner likes to have it lower so happy that it accommodates us both and we are able to feel comfortable when pushing the pram. It also comes with a sun hood extension, which over the last couple of days have been amazing in this sunny weather perfect for the sunny days out in the school holidays.
I tried the pushchair out in the car which was the part I was most apprehensive about and it totally exceeded my expectations! It was easy to fold and deconstruct and fit in the boot of the car which isn’t the biggest of boots. Plus I still had some room spare if I needed it.
After being able to try this pushchair I would and already have recommend it. It's so stylish and smooth this is a 100% a worthy investment that won't disappoint.

We were recently gifted the Joolz Geo2 stroller to test and review, I was extremely impressed by how quick I received the item. It arrived the next day and was very well packaged. The pram parts were pack so that there was not too much movement in the box, to prevent any damaging, but just enough so it didn’t look crammed. There was extra packaging around the frame to stop any scratches and the box was made of a thicker cardboard for extra protection. The original box itself was made from 100% recyclable material and also had fun cut outs to be able to design your own 3D reindeer.
We decided on the ‘marvellous green’ colour in the duo configuration and I was not disappointed, in fact the pictures do not do it any justice at all, it’s completely gorgeous and the stroller has a lovely tan colour handle bar, which compliments the green well.
One of my favourite things about this stroller is the large SPF 50 + canopy with its pop out sun visor. The canopy has 3 separate waterproof panels, and the very back panel has a hidden mesh viewing window, that improves airflow. The large basket is again an added plus for me. It is very large and spacious, the back of the basket collapses down making it easy accessible. It can hold up to 22lbs and has a hard base, which helps maintain the basket’s shape and sturdiness. You literally could fit a weeks worth of shopping in there!
5 point harness
The 5-point harness surrounded by padding to provide comfort and support to baby, has adjustable straps and a white centre release button. The two top straps have a magnetic clip making it easy to buckle your little one up, giving the stroller a lovely unique feature.
Adjustable handle bar
The handle bar adjusts with the two silver clips on each side; I was actually pleasantly surprised how high the handle bar goes, which is great to suit every parent’s preference. It definitely gives the stroller a more comfortable and easier push. There is also two hooks on the side of the handle bar designed to hold the changing bag, I think this is a great feature and a lovely well though of, finishing touch.
All terrain tyres
The Geo2 has great large all terrain tyres meaning it can handle a lot of different surfaces with ease from grass to uneven paving. This makes it the perfect stroller for us on those long dog walks through fields upon fields. It also benefits from all wheel suspension making those bumping rides a lot smoother for your little one.
Although the Geo2 isn’t a one handed fold, it is extremely easy to fold. With the two white buttons on the side, it collapsed with the seat still attached, which is an added plus for me. I personally, don’t find the Geo2 bulky when folded in comparison with other strollers as I can still manage to get it in the boot of my Zafira along side with my mountain buggy duet.
Reversible seat options
This is something I absolutely love about the Geo2. The fact I can have my boy parent facing or world facing is such great feature. A lot of strollers nowadays do not have this option, so I’ve definitely taken full advantage of it. The stroller has two rectangular white buttons on the side that you push in to take the seat unit off, you can then attach it easily to your preferred rotation. The seat has a three point recline, which is operated by two white round buttons, which I find easy to use and a much preferred feature than a lever at the back of the stroller.
Second seat option
The Geo2 can be turned into a double tandem. The second seat replaces the basket at the back. It is a unique shape with a small canopy and recline. A pro with this design is that the pram stays the same size, however, the downside to this is that you lose the basket completely. This could be an issue for you if you use your pram for shopping trips and need the extra storage for those baby essentials. For me this is something Joolz could improve on with the Geo2, but for those shorter trips with my twins where I don’t need so much storage it’s perfect!
Overall, the Joolz Geo2, is a beautiful stylish pram, with many unique features. The finishing touches have been very well designed and are of a very high standard. The stroller has so many benefits from basket to canopy and it is very well made giving your little one a comfortable journey. I cannot actually find one fault with it as a single stroller. Obviously as a double tandem, the basket situation would be my main issue and something Joolz would need to review but overall, I’m extremely impressed and happy with the stroller.
