The bloom zen- one of coolest strollers ever, now available for pre-order

 

Bloom will be releasing their innovative new stroller, the zen & it’s accompanying 3-in-1 mobile travel nest, the yoga, early next year, but those who are anxious to secure one of their impending or existing little ones, will be pleased to know that they are now available for pre-order directly from Bloom. 

I’ve been lucky enough to be one of the first to test out quite a few very cool new strollers lately and the impending arrival of the zen is still very, very exciting. It’s another that I can’t wait to try out first hand. The zen sounds so very enticing that I find myself thinking of ways that I could possibly justify working one into my current stroller lineup. If you’re in the market for something new or searching for a great stroller for a new baby, this is one to take a very close look at. It’s quite smashing indeed.

What makes this stroller so special? Well, it’s any one of these fabulous features:

To start, a retracting compact fold that makes it a breeze to store and transport pretty much anywhere. This full sized stroller folds to a compact ultra-slim 25cm/9.8” standing package with just the flip of your wrist and easily rolls right along with you. 

Next, you’ll find the first ever stroller-integrated solar lighting system  with the option of full beam or flashing hazard lights for the ultimate in safety. It’s 3 AAA batteries are can be charged by the stroller’s very own solar panels to keep you as safe as can be when out for evening strolls.

Want even more fabulousness? The zen offers puncture-proof wheels with front and rear shock absorbers plus the front wheel’s patented “anti-dribble mechanism”, the canopy is coated with an SPF 40+ uv coating and all materials are breathable, stain resistant and machine washable.  The stroller will be offered at launch with the option of the cmyk (with interchangeable & reversible cyan & magenta cushions/mattress pads) and the monochrome (interchangeable & reversible lunar silver & midnight black cushions/mattress pads). Being a CMYK girl at heart and always thrilled to see a colorful stroller, I’d have to go with that one, but the monochrome looks pretty appealing too. Optional accessories include a pvc-free rain cover, cup holder, uv mosquito net, foot muff and reversible zen seat cushions & yoga mattresses in additional vibrant colors. Car seat adaptors for cybex aton, maxi cosi and graco snugride car seats are also available.

The bloom yoga™ newborn nest offers a mobile travel bed, bassinet and portable bouncer. When attached to the the bloom zen it offers  a parent-facing newborn cradle with 2 recline positions and an extra supportive mattress. It also folds completely flat to less than 15cm/6” for easy storage and portability. The yoga™ also meets IATA size restrictions for in-flight usage, how very convenient.

The zen stroller will retail for $799; the yoga nest for $250; car seat adapters, $45.

bloom zen™ & bloom yoga™ will be sold exclusively in The Americas in Early 2012. Pre order now at the bloombaby site.
