We've been using the Babyzen yoyo for over 2 years now, here's why we think it's the best in the market.Posted by Sachelle, 12th May 2019 at 14:06
If you're a new parent and love to travel - the Babyzen Yoyo is the perfect investment. We were originally sent the Babyzen yoyo when Georgia took her first long haul flight to South Africa back in 2016. It is still going strong and I love how they keep improving it with their new accessories. Read our original review here

Our experience so far
In my opinion, the best thing about this stroller is that it can, when folded, fit into most overhead lockers on the plane.
We have used the Yoyo + since December 2016 and it has been an absolute lifesaver, especially on trips where i've travelled with Georgia on my own. When there's a lot to carry, you have a tired baby / toddler and need a hand - the Yoyo is amazing. A lot of the time when your stroller is taken off you at the aircraft door, it gets returned to you on the baggage carousel. I always think, while standing in the queue at passport control, how amazing it is to be able to put Georgia in her Yoyo as soon as we leave the aircraft, push her along (normally while watching the Ipad) and keep her quiet and contained. On some planes you can even open them in the aisle and secure your little one and roll them straight off the plane (make sure you dont have to walk up or down stairs when exiting the aircraft though).
This stroller is also suitable from birth (we never used the newborn pack as Georgia was old enough for the Yoyo + but I have seen it being used may times whilst travelling through airports especially on a recent trip to France - I would say I saw more Babyzen Yoyo's than any other brand). You can also purhcase a Babyzen carseat or adaptors for most major brands so that you are able to use this stroller as a travel system from birth to 18kgs.
Lets talk accessories
I love how Babyzen keep adapting and coming up with new accessories to improve the comfort and usability of the product. We have tried and tested: the parasol, travel bag (which comes with back straps so you can wear it like a backpack), the mosquito net, the yoyo + bag, the maxi cosi car seat adaptors and most recently the newest accesory - the leg rest.
Georgia is almost 3 and eventhough she's not a major fan of going in the buggy / stroller, when travelling I will always take my yoyo - she seemed to like putting her feet up on the leg rest and I think it would be an excellent addition for younger children, especially those using the stroller to sleep in. It adjusts to several positions and extends the length by 12cm. It doesn't hinder the folding / unfolding of the stroller either. It is still within cabin baggage dimensions with the leg rest attached.
Would you like to win your own Babyzen Yoyo ?
All in all, we love our yoyo (and the accessories) and feel it is definitely worth the money (you can buy yours here from £389.00. It grows with your child and is perfect for days out and when travelling.
Keep an eye on our Facebook page as we are teaming up with Babyzen in the next few days to giveaway a Babyzen Yoyo + and their new leg rest.
