Welcome to the Babyzen 2017 Yoyo Stroller Review from theDaddy.Guide! Looking for a compact stroller perfect for travel or on the go? This thing fits into the overhead compartment of an airplane and might become the carry on you won’t ever want to leave behind. It’s may be true that no one likes a small package, but not in the case of The Babyzen Yoyo. Let’s see how this baby measures up in the Daddy 5-Point Review.
Changes for 2017
The newer 2017 model has some MAJOR upgrades. The flimsier white centered wheels have been updated with better rubber tires with improved four wheel suspension. The wheel changes also now match either the black or white chassis perfectly. You may or may not care about that, but it’s worth mentioning.
A major complaint for the 2016 model was the basket size, the 2017 has more than doubled from their latest model, so you can fit diaper bags or even shopping bags, nice one Babyzen!
The most significant change in my opinion is the ability to transform the stroller into a travel system by inserting a car seat. The car seat adapters can carry a range of infant carriers including Cybex, BeSafe and Maxi-Cosi Pebble and Pebble Plus and easily clip onto the sides of the frame, with a simple (white) button locking them into place. To remove again, just press the white button to release.
Bottom line is, the Babyzen 2017 Yoyo stroller model is now a longer term investment as the seat can now carry up to 40lbs. You can use it until your kid is almost 4 years old. The biggest knock on the 2016 was price point, so, you definitely get what you pay for with this years version. The 2017 is the best compact stroller on the market… there, I said it!
Daddy 5-Point Review
This compact stroller comes fully assembled since it is so small. It arrives folded in its own storage bag. Done deal.
The BabyZen Yoyo is lightweight and has a sleek and modern design. The stroller weights 13 pounds (winner, winner, chicken dinner). It comes with either a black or white chassis and in several color packs: Blue, Black, Red, Grey, Pink and Taupe.
The padded and color coded seat liner is thick, it feels like high quality and is great for the kid when they’re in it for an extended period of time.
Ease of opening and Closing
You can fold BabyZen with just one hand while holding a screaming baby in your other hand. I know because I’m part dad of a 2 kids under 3 years old, and part middle-aged ninja.
Additionally, the stroller’s record-breaking fold allows you to fit it into the smallest of spaces, so storage is never an issue. And it’s airplane carry-on approved!
Even though this Yoyo Stroller is not designed for rough terrain, a smooth ride is guaranteed on most surfaces. It contains an their exclusive soft-drive system, which adapts to the surface you’re traveling over. Forget the front wheel lock, this advanced system is very effective.
Despite the compact size, this is a very sturdy stroller that feels very solid. The frame is made out of high quality lightweight aluminum which is light and durable at the same time.
There is also a pedal in the back that you step on to activate the brakes. Super easy to unlock.
