Ever since we came to the US my baby and I have done a fair bit of travelling and moving around; and for the most part the Doona Car seat is still the best thing for us to use – but my baby girl has now started to grow out of it so we needed a new stroller.
Since summers in NY are very hot, I needed a light stroller that can help us cope with the heat, be easy to carry on the subway or city busses and that I can easily take on a plane back to the UK.
Enter the BabyZen YoYo.
The most compact stroller I have ever come across, that is super light and very easy to fold and unfold with one hand and a baby in your arms (for real, no kidding)!
Also nicknamed the ‘Brooklyn Mom’s Stroller’ the YoYo has travelled with me and my daughter everywhere – in, out & astound the city, the mall, the car, the plane (where I could store it in the overhead compartment), the park, and the list could go on.
The best part about it – my daughter loves it, whether she lounges super relaxed in it or naps in it by the pool, as she did on a recent trip to Nashville [picture above], it’s safe to say this stroller is very she comfortable– she even allows me to get my clothes shopping done – hassle free! And as a bonus – it also comes with a small shopping storage basket, making it all even easier to manage alone.
The material from which this stroller is built, is very light but of great quality, and you can easily customise it with your favourite colours and accessories, which you can easily find on Amazon, as well as the top retailers.
The suspension makes it an easy ride on most surfaces, & it’s swivel wheels at the front make it super easy to manoeuvre in tight spaces!
NOTE: however if you need an all-terrain you can go for the BabyZen Zen instead! Which is more expensive but more robust on uneven surfaces. The YoYo is perfect -though – for the city-dweller & globetrotter who loves comfort, style and ease of use and won’t break the bank as it retails for $400.
