Joolz started back in 2006 in the Netherlands, home to many premium stroller companies, with the design of the first Joolz Day, which we have since upgraded several times, and now we have officially launched the Joolz Day2 everywhere in Europe. Globally the company has expanded since then to more than 30 countries located in Europe, Asia and Australia.
Since January 2017 we are also available in the US. Here we now offer the Joolz Geo2 which is proving to be the perfect stroller for the US consumer with an XXL grocery basket, easy 1 piece fold, and extremely maneuverable chassis that can be used as a Mono, Duo or Twin stroller together with seat or basinet. Perfect for every family adventure. In 2018, have a look out for Joolz as we will be introducing more to this market!
