Family travel just got easier! Parents know parenting best, and here’s the latest invention by parents for parents: The Joey. More than a stroller, The Joey is a wagon that does everything a stroller does and then some, all as it evolves with your family, so there’s no need to buy multiple sizes or types as your children grow. The Joey works equally as well for a trip to the park as it does for navigating an airport or destination.
UC Berkeley graduate and Houston mom Tiffany Ramachandran honed her business development skills at Warby Parker and Uber Eats before creating The Joey, which grew from her desire for a practical way for her kids to really enjoy an outing without the need for so much gear.
Here’s some of the features that make The Joey perfect for family travelers and beyond:
- Folds up with one hand
- Fits in the smallest car trunk
- Boasts 360-degree views
- Seats face each other for great social interaction
- Children can safely immerse themselves in the happenings around them while in transit
- Accommodates two kids up to 4 years old
- Has a car seat adapter for babies
- Navigate the airport and easily gate-check The Joey
- Can also accommodate pets
- Comes with snack tray, cup holders and ample storage
- ASTM stroller safety certified and UPF 50
- Wheels mirror the ride of air tires, but they won’t pop or run flat
- One-step footbrake
- Front-locking wheels
