Valco Zee Two Baby Gizmo Giant Weekly Giveaway

With twin babies, a two year old, and a four year old, finding a stroller to use was not easy.  We picked the Valco Baby Tri-Mode Twin, with the hitchhiker board and the toddler joey seat, because it was pretty much the only option that would let me have all four kids on one stroller.  I have loved it, it is not difficult to fold, the individual canopies are lovely, the buckles are wonderfully kid-proof, and it is all-around a really nice stroller.  But I've had a couple of complaints with it.  It's very heavy, and it has air-filled tires.  I understand, it's an all-terrain stroller, and they generally have air-filled tires.  But I've already gotten a thorn in one tire, and had to get a new inner tube for it, and I'm not really using the stroller much in all-terrain sorts of situations.  It's pretty much sidewalks for us, and occasionally some grass when we cut across the park to get to the playground.  But, like I said, it was the only option that would work for us, and other than those two minor complaints, I've loved it.  And the thing that really convinced me to buy it was watching the video review from (seriously, if you ever want a video review of a stroller you're considering, check and see if they have one there first! Best, most in-depth stroller video reviews I've seen.)

Now, lo and behold, Valco has made a new double stroller, the Zee Two.  It still has the wonderful canopies, it will eventually take a toddler seat and the hitchhiker board, but! It is lighter! It has foam tires that are unpoppable!  It is, in a nutshell, my dream stroller.  And! Baby Gizmo did a wonderful review of it, which made up my mind completely.  I want one.  And! Baby Gizmo does an amazing Giant Weekly Giveaway, where they give away all sorts of awesome things.  And (you see where this is leading now, don't you?), this week, they are giving away a Zee Two.  What's a mom of four kids four and under to do, but try every conceivable way to win?

So, there you have it.  The Valco Zee Two.  Baby Gizmo Giveaways.  And one blog post by none other than yours truly.

P.S. I will update about life and all that nonsense soon, I promise!
