Joie Crosster

DISCONTINUED in 2020
see 5 parent reviews

The Joie Crosster is a robust, all-terrain three-wheeler with a massive hood that can be extended so that in a fully reclined seat it reaches over the bumper bar. The hood also features two bottle holder pockets. The Crosster's wheels are equipped with maintenance-free tires and an adjustable suspension, making the stroller glide over any terrain. Thanks to the presence of a handbrake, the Crosster is even suitable for light jogging. You can recline the non-reversible seat fully. Thanks to the high weight capacity, it can handle even a heavier child. The Crosster can also accommodate a newborn thanks to the possibility of adding a carrycot (the Ramble) or a car seat using adapters.

Made for uneven and difficult terrain

5
  • Three wheels
  • Robust
  • Stable
  • Design
  • Suspension
  • Brakes
  • Quality materials
  • Hood

I bought this pram based on an advice I read here - I had no idea such a pushchair exists...

I have three children, so I have already tried quite a few prams, and this one made all the other ones look really poor. It's THE pushchair to get! Robust, solid, perfect suspension on the wheels - which I needed since we live in a village - and the stroller is really made for uneven and difficult terrain!

I wasn't, I admit, a fan of three-wheeled strollers, but now I wouldn't want another one - it a completely different maneuvering and push.

I will never swap this one

4
  • A great all-terrain push
  • Non-inflatable, large rubber wheels
  • Suspension
  • Spacious - my three years old can comfortably nap in it, when we're in our garden
  • A bit heavier, but it makes it sit on the road better

For me the best, and it's our fourth pushchair. I will never swap this one. Just one little niggle with it, the canopy faded after summer. We own the Crosster Signature in blue colour.

Met all of our requirements

5
  • Ultimately large canopy
  • Literally for every terrain
  • A lot of space for the child
  • No need to inflate the wheels

It met all of our requirements.

The best jogger there is. Incredibly good wheels that will pass through literally everything. A huge hood that will cover the whole child, even in the fully reclined position - if it's raining, you don't even need a rain cover, the little one won't get wet. I recommend it mostly for taller parents. Even taller toddlers have plenty of space in the seat. The pushchair is a little heavy, but that is so worth all its other features.

A top pushchair for me so far. The only negative being that is is heavy, nothing else to complain about ❤️ The changing bag is very large. The canopy is simply perfect. My DD loves it - she would sit half a day in it no problem 🙂
