Zobo Bolt stroller

Zobo strollers are a Babies R Us exclusive and made by Aria Baby.

Aria Baby is owned by Evenflo. And Evenflo is owned by Goodbaby, which markets strollers under their own GB brand and the Urbini brand in Walmart. Confusing, we know—but if you read our reviews of Evenflo or GB, you’ll get the gist of Zobo.

The Zobo Bolt is the flagship stroller here—a $80 umbrella-style fold stroller with basic basket and partially reclining seat. Readers who’ve purchased this stroller tell us they like extended sun visor and the fact the Bolt stands when folded . . . but critics say the fold itself isn’t easy or smooth. Overall, we found the quality of this stroller to be poor: the cup holder constantly falls off, the plastic wheels give a rough ride and so on.

The Zobo Bolt comes in two additional versions: a double side by side (Bolt 2x, $150) and a tandem double dubbed the Beacon, $120 (which now looks like it is discontinued). We weren’t impressed with either of these strollers, quality-wise.

Yes, these stroller look like a good deal, but there are so many corners cut here we don’t think they are worth it. Example: the Bolt 2X side by side model doesn’t have a child snack tray or cup holder; nor is there much storage for the parent. The tiny basket barely will hold the smallest diaper bag.

Bottom line: there are better options out there. Rating: D-
