What a game changer.
If you’re struggling to find a pram that fits into a small car, or you’re a city dweller that needs a convenient stroller, then this is the one for you.
I love our Graco pram that we bought when I was pregnant, but it doesn’t come without its hindrances. Like the fact it won’t fit in the boot of my car, and that it’s pretty heavy to push when I’m on my own.
That’s why as soon as I saw the BabyZen YoYo stroller, I knew it was exactly what I needed. I watched in awe as I saw someone fold it up with ease in seconds and how compact it was, it’s a total game changer.
It comes in such small boxes and is really easy to put together – hey, if I managed to do it by myself, anyone can! You can also interchange the covers to make it fit in with your lifestyle. I opted for the grey, because I have a slight obsession with a grey colour palette. I would have gone for the ‘ginger’ option, but I think Chris would have been less than impressed with a pink pram for Archie. Oh well hehe! These covers come in their own separate box as you can see in the picture above.
You can alter the back rest to create a variety of seating positions for your little one, so they can go from sleeping to sitting upright in no time at all. There is also a rather large sunshade which will keep the sun from their eyes.
If you’d like to check on your baby while the sunshade is fully extended. then there is a window located over the area your child will sit so you can look down while pushing. I find this particularly handy with the transition from a parent-facing pram to a forward-facing one.
The straps go over the shoulders, around the waist and clip into the piece located between your little one’s legs. They simply undo by clicking the big red button, which wouldn’t be easy for your baby to open themselves. There is also a safety warning image located on the right strap so you will always be reminded of how the harness works.
It folds down to a very compact size with little hassle, simply make sure the wheels are pointing forward, pull the handlebar and sunshade down, push a button in underneath the pram and pull the handle and you’re there. It’s ideal if you have a small boot or are travelling with your little one. And opening up the pram is just as easy, by pulling on the handlebar and you will watch the stroller extend in front of you.
At only 6kg in weight, this stroller is so lightweight that you will find it’s easy to forget you’re actually pushing your child around because it’s so easy doing so. The difference going from our old pram to this one is crazy and it makes walking, especially when out on my own with Archie so much easier. But despite being so lightweight, it still feels incredibly well made. It doesn’t in any way seem like a cheap or flimsy chasis, in fact, completely the opposite. Even when I have a heavy changing bag over the back of the handle, it remains in an upright position without tipping backwards, which makes this a real winner.
Although quite small, the basket is still a fairly reasonable size, considering the overall size of the stroller. I still manage to fit everything I need to into it and I don’t feel like I’m compromising in any way. There’s even a really handy pocket at the back of the stroller which has a zip closing, giving you even more storage options. This is perfect for holding a purse, phone and keys, or other handy baby items that you may need to hand quickly.
There are also many different accessories you can add to your stroller for personal and comfort benefits. Like the footmuff, cup holder and colourful seat pads and canopy. You can even get custom made colour packs on websites like Etsy.
