Tango with the Jonas Brothers

Maybe it was the total lunar eclipse. Or the Ursid Meteor Shower. The Winter Solstice. Or the alignment of everything celestial. Because, as we were reviewing the Zooper Tango, some heavenly bodies appeared. Like shooting stars. Or more accurately, Disney movie and music stars. 

 

Can you tell who they are?                                                                                  

  

 How about now?

  Yes, indeedy, it is none other than Joe and Nick Jonas! Joe is in the grey sweater and black shorts; Nick is in the green hat and yellow shoes.  

 For some perspective on where we are, in relation to where they are.

First, this glorious 2011 Zooper Tango, in Jungle Earth, with the matching boot.

Behind the Tango, my friend Shelly playing soccer. And behind her, Nick Jonas.

Tango with the new, awesome, water resistant canopy. 

Which can be operated independently.

Shelly, and Joe operating independently.

This two-seater Tango is really handsome; quite the head turner. 

And these two handsome Jonas brothers are certainly turning the heads of a lot of tweens and teens.

The seats can be reclined individually, with the use of this lever. What is unique, although it shouldn't be, is that the seats go completely flat. Perfect for a younger child.

Younger brother Nick, with our youngest soccer player Peter.

The basket on the Tango is HUGE.

So are Joe's biceps, yikes!  

The upscale but cool Tango has a storage compartment on the back.

 

 As does Joe's upscale but cool Mercedes.

The Jungle Earth is a natural amongst the fall leaves.  Joe is a natural amongst the other players.

The Tango is very easy to open and close. In fact, a little too easy on the 2007/2008 models. They were recalled because several models collapsed in half, when children were in it. No serious injuries were reported, but there were reports of scrapes and bruises. I asked a Zooper spokesman  if this flaw had been corrected on current models. He assured me it had. This is what he had to say:

"After extensive study and examination of the 2007/2008 Tango, we identified that the defect is derived from the plastic front latch frame lock.  We replaced it  with an extra-strong die cast front latch frame lock, for all 2009/2010 and 2011 models. With this new die cast front latch frame lock, we have not received a single complaint, or service request since. We are confident that the defective design of the plastic front latch frame lock has been rectified."

I did not, however, ask Nick and Joe to post for a picture. They were just out with the boys having fun, on a late fall afternoon. And I didn't want to spoil it.

A helicopter did, though, at least temporarily. Our peace was shattered by the loud whirring of blades.

We all looked skyward, thinking they might be Paparazzi. But after circling for a bit, they took off. Maybe chasing bad guys.

Joe was chasing his bulldog, Winston.

When folded, the Tango stands upright.

 

 The Jonas Brothers are known for being upright in their belief; real stand up guys.

 Finally, there were some reports last year that Zooper had gone bankrupt. As Mark Twain once said, "Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated."

 And, based on the success of the Jonas Brothers music, movies, TV, touring, and merchandising, don't expect their demise anytime soon!
