And the Winner Is: Bugaboo Butterfly Stroller

Traveling with baby doesn’t have to be a headache. With the new Bugaboo Butterfly Stroller you can say goodbye to the days of wrestling bulky gear that refuses to fold at the airport gate. With an amazing one-second fold and unfold, the ultra-compact stroller is compatible with the International Air Travel Association (IATA), and can be easily stored in a plane’s overhead compartment (or in the narrow corridor of a hotel room). Better yet, it’s car seat-compatible for your on-the-go convenience. Believe us: When it comes time to pack for a weekend trip or long family vacation, this is the stroller you’ll want to have on hand.

What We Love

  • The Bugaboo Butterfly meets the requirements for carry-on luggage set by the IATA, and can easily fit in airplane overhead compartments

  • While it only weighs 16 lbs, the stroller can carry up to 66 pounds—a child weighing up to 48.5 lbs in the seat and 17.5 pounds of stuff in the large storage basket

  • It features a one-second fold and one-second unfold without the need to adjust any part of the stroller

  • A large, adjustable seat grows with baby, and a leg rest provides top-tier comfort on the go

  • This car seat-compatible stroller comes with a carry strap that makes it easy to tote around when not in use

“I’ve tried out a lot of compact strollers, and this city- and travel-friendly option is the best one yet. It truly has it all. The ultra-compact fold makes it easy to store in my apartment. The basket is big enough to actually be functional (not always a given with compact strollers). Thanks to the smooth push, I can maneuver this stroller through the streets of Brooklyn with a single hand. And honestly, I could kiss the designer who thought of no-thread harness straps that don’t get buried in the stroller. What can I say—I’m in love!” - Ashlee Neuman, content director at The Bump
