And the Winner Is: Babyzen YOYO2

It may seem crazy to own more than one stroller, but as baby grows and you find your rhythm as a family, you’ll likely want a second set of wheels—it’s really nice to have a lightweight stroller for short trips and travel. The YOYO2 could absolutely be baby’s primary ride—a newborn pack allows your infant to cruise fully reclined in a bassinet. You can attach adapters for most infant car seats too. Once your little one hits the six-month mark, they can graduate to the full seat, which features a five-point harness and a pop-up canopy. But where the stroller really excels is in its portability—it weighs less than 14 pounds and folds into a compact square that fits into an aircraft overhead bin. Despite its small size, the ride is one of the smoothest out there—you can even maneuver it with one hand. It’s an investment, but one you won’t regret.

What We Love

• The YOYO2 collapses with ease into a compact fold that fits in an overhead bin on most aircrafts—not waiting on the jet bridge for your gate-checked stroller is a game-changer

• Two stroller modes take you from infancy to toddlerhood: A newborn bassinet snaps onto the stroller (sold separately) and allows baby to lay flat—you can even change a diaper on the go! In seat mode, your 6-month-old can watch the world pass by

• The seat reclines for naptime and an extendable hood offers UPF 50+ protection to keep baby in the shade on even the sunniest days

• You really only need one hand to steer, fold and unfold the YOYO2, which is clutch when you’re juggling a baby with the other hand; a strap lets you carry the folded stroller like a shoulder bag, and at less than 14 pounds, it may actually rival the weight of your diaper bag

Related Video

• Amazing suspension technology gives the YOYO2 the smoothest ride on the market; rear wheel parking brakes, front wheels that swivel and a reinforced frame make it easy to maneuver and offer a comfortable ride for baby

• The large storage basket can carry up to 11 pounds and can be accessed from the front or back of the stroller; there’s also a zipper pouch to stash your keys or wipes for easy access

• A slew of accessories like car seat adapters, a cup holder, footmuffs and a ride-on board make this a stroller for the long haul
