I have always had this problem with my Zooper. The front wheel which is supposed to release and swivel, won't release. You can move the brake switch but it doesn't quite losen up all the way. I am forced to always use it as a stationary wheeled stroller.
I have just fixed my stroller which had a similar problem. The wheel was still swivelling but it was sticking slightly. I noticed that the pin that locks the wheel in place was half out and therefore the wheel was getting caught on it. I undid the nut that holds the end of the wheel lock cable in place and tightened this as tight as I could which pulls the pin back into place (making sure that the switch is in swivel position). I then put the washer and nut back on (making sure cable was as tight as possible).

Hi I had a similar problem with mine. I ended up just tightening the cable that connected the front wheel to the lock. (screw-like connector bolt under lock) You may want to adjust the cable as well sounds like it needs to be loosened maybe. I hope that I helped. Good luck! :)
All is not lost yet, Contact Zooper directly to see if this can be fixed before throwing out your stroller. [email protected] 1-888-742-9899 They have an online submission form on their website under the FAQ -"I have an older zooper stroller. How can I go about getting parts or service?" but when I went there, it seemed to be a warranty registration link instead.
First of all, a heartfelt congratulations! Second, it's definitely challenging having children so close together.
The Zooper Boogie is a good stroller and it's engineered in a VERY specific way to provide baby safety and comfort. It does this by providing a slightly lower center of gravity focused on the rotating single front wheel. This makes it more maneuverable for parents and keeps baby at the center of the swivel. Attaching a second compartment on the front or back of this particular carriage would undermine the engineered balance, tremendously. At least one occupant would suffer from an extended swing when maneuvering that could be more than just uncomfortable, especially if it was extended forward over the front wheel. Some stroller companies might be willing to do this, Zooper doesn't.
The best alternative that they offer is the Tango which is engineered for two. I know that you mentioned that you wouldn't purchase a double stroller but modifying a single might be uncomfortable and possibly dangerous for your little ones. I would recommend against it.
I had the same problem and took it back to where i bought it. THey sent it in and had the whole front wheel and corresponding parts replaced. A few weeks later the same probem occured. I just sold the stroller as is. You could try to contact Zooper directly, but don't get your hopes up, sorry.
