BABYZEN YOYO2 Stroller - Full Review | Best Lightweight and Everyday stroller 2023
The Babyzen YOYO2: More Than Just a Travel Stroller
Two words that first come to mind when you hear Babyzen YOYO: travel stroller. While it has earned a well-deserved reputation as a fantastic travel stroller and has been seen strolling on the streets worldwide, there are numerous reasons why the YOYO2 is more than just a great travel companion. The YOYO2 is an exceptional all-purpose stroller that will meet your travel needs and seamlessly adapt to your everyday life.
Before we tell you why, let’s discuss the basics:
Age of use: 0+ months. The Babyzen YOYO2 is entirely customizable with 3 newborn options including newborn pack, bassinet and infant car seat compatibility, making it available to you from the day you take your little one home!
Weight: 13.6lbs with the 6+ version and 14.5 lbs with the newborn pack or 17.8 lbs with the bassinet
Child weight limit: 48.5lbs
Folded dimensions: 20.5 x 17.3 x 7.1 in
Unfolded dimensions: 41.7 x 33.8 x 17.3 in) in the 6+ and newborn pack versions, 106 x 96 x 44 cm (41.7 x 37.8 x 17.3 in) with the bassinet
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let us give you the down low on why you’ll want to put that big travel system aside and have the Babyzen YOYO2 as your life's front and center stroller.
Is the Babyzen YOYO2 Compact and Lightweight?
Here at Magic Beans, we often tell parents the Babyzen YOYO2 is an excellent addition to your bigger and heavier travel system. We even suggest starting with a lightweight stroller and transitioning to a larger one after a few weeks. One of the standout features of the YOYO2 is its incredible portability. These features also make it a fantastic option for daily use (you’ll thank us when you have to keep getting it in and out of the car with ease). Whether navigating crowded city streets, maneuvering through busy shopping centers or simply taking a stroll in the park, the YOYO2's compact size and featherlight (yet incredibly durable) frame ensure effortless handling and easy storage in tight spaces. It’s also important to note that if you’re a city parent with minimal space to store yet another piece of baby gear, the incredibly small fold of the Babyzen YOYO2 will allow you to tuck it away.
Does the Babyzen YOYO2 accommodate a newborn?
We get it; buying a stroller is an investment, and you’ll want something durable to get you through the many stages of your little one’s early life. Its remarkable versatility and adaptability set the Babyzen YOYO2 apart from other strollers. It effortlessly transitions between various modes, accommodating the needs of your growing child.
Even with a newborn, there are many ways to stroll with the YOYO2. With the 0+ newborn pack, the YOYO2 becomes a cozy space for your infant, allowing them to lay completely flat. Car seat adapters are also available to attach your infant car seat to the stroller frame without removing anything! The YOYO2/YOYO+ Bassinet simply clicks on the YOYO2 frame providing ultimate comfortable and security for your newborn. It is essential to let you know the adapter for the Bassinet is different from the Infant Car Seat adapter.
As your child grows, the stroller can be converted into a forward-facing reclinable seat for use from 6 months and up, ensuring your little one's comfort at every stage.
How does the Babyzen YOYO2 navigate busy streets (or crowded stores?)
While the Babyzen YOYO2 was made to travel the world with you, it is also a great companion for the grocery store aisle (if you’re not the world traveler type.) The Babyzen YOYO2's enhanced suspension makes for a smooth ride and is incredibly easy to maneuver in tight spaces (crowded cobblestone streets, narrow store aisles, or busy airports.) With the rear wheels tucked in, the Babyzen YOYO2 spins on a dime with one of the smallest turning ratios in the stroller world, allowing you to weave in and out of the crowd at the farmer’s market!
What accessories does the Babyzen YOYO2 have?
Take a walk on a busy street and you’ll see many strollers that all look similar. The Babyzen YOYO2 allows you to stand out from the crowd by making it entirely your own. With over nine colors to choose from, the color packs allow you to change the color of your YOYO2 depending on your mood or the season, like with their new Stone color, which is the perfect gray! Speaking of seasons, the YOYO2 has everything you need for rain, snow, or sunshine! Grab the footmuff, parasol, rain cover, or mosquito net, and keep your little one safe no matter the weather.
Need extra room for all that stuff? The YOYO bag hooks onto your YOYO2 in seconds and even has a spare wheel to help support everything you grabbed along your stroll.
Can the Babyzen YOYO2 be used for more than one child?
Yes! The YOYO2 is built for longevity, and it’s also built for your growing family. Add the YOYO board for that little one who likes to stand up and hang on! Use the YOYO Connect, which hooks onto your stroller and turns it into a double stroller.
While we still want you to take those vacations with your little one, the versatility, comfort, safety features, smart design, and stylish aesthetics of the Babyzen YOYO2 make it an outstanding choice for everyday use. Whether embarking on a family vacation or simply navigating your daily routine, the YOYO2 perfectly balances functionality and convenience.
