Since 1946 Kolcraft has been serving generations of families building its history by manufacturing sturdy crib mattresses that parents have depended on for decades. For 65 years Kolcraft’s family owned and operated baby Product Company has journeyed with families through the joys of parenthood by designing and manufacturing dependable baby products.
True to its innovative nature, Kolcraft continued to grow throughout the 1990’s by entering into additional new categories including Bassinets, Bouncers, Swings and Juvenile Furniture. I am a proud member of the Kolcraft blogger review program that allows me to have access to some of the company’s great products.
I have already reviewed a couple of Kolcraft products like the Jeep Traveler Tandem and a personal favorite the Kolcraft Preferred Position 2-in-1 Bassinet & Incline Sleeper. In this opportunity I am very happy to bring you the Contours Options 3-Wheeler Stroller.
The Contours Options 3-Wheeler features a reversible seat that allows your baby to face you or face forward as your little one grows. Using the infant car seat attachment you can easily design your travel system. The Contours Options 3-Wheeler includes a child cup holder, height-adjustable canopy and simple fold ….Features that are meant to make parents and care givers life easier.
The Contours Options 3-Wheeler has an 8" front single-swivel wheel that offers smooth steering…Great for the times that you are in a crowded place. …The large back wheels are also a key element for the easy stroll on the Contours Options 3 Wheeler. The setup is relatively easy…It took me about 25 minutes to do it…It took me a little longer because I stopped and took a few pictures as I was getting the stroller ready.
The stroller is made with sturdy high quality materials and I personally think that the stroller looks better in person than what you can appreciate on the picture at the Kolcraft online store. The basket is really nice and wide and the stroller comes with a very convenient parent’s tray that has two cup holders and a small compartment for small items like a cell phone, keys… The stroller comes with a few screws that are used to secure some of the parts, but there are not too many (you will need a Philips screw driver).
A lot of the stroller elements easily snap into place and the screws are for extra safety measures to keep your stroller properly assembled. The stroller has a wide and sturdy frame and is really easy to maneuver. The stroller comes with an infant car seat attachment that fits most brands on the market. Among the features on the stroller you will find that the seat reclines from 90 degrees to 45 degrees to full recline can be done by just pulling a lever on the back of the stroller.
Closing and opening the stroller is really easy and smooth (lock the brakes, close the canopy, pull up on the red triggers on each side of the stroller and slightly push stroller handle forward, step down on basket lever with foot and push stroller handle forward, allowing the stroller to become compact and lock to prevent the stroller from opening after you closed it).
The front wheel swivels and has a lock that allows you to lock the wheels into place. The Contours Options 3 wheeler, is height-adjustable to grow with your child. It also has a removable infant head rest with really soft micro-fleece fabric.
The stroller weights about 27 pounds, so you will need both hands to lift it. The maximum child weight for this stroller is 50 pounds and folded, the stroller is :27" W x 17.5" D x 46" H. The retail price on the Contours Options 3-Wheeler is 169.99 and it is available in two different colors, a red black and white that is gender neutral and a pink/brown combination.
One thing you need to keep in mind if you have a small car, is that the stroller has a wide frame, so you might have some issues trying to fit it in a car with a small trunk.
