Babyzen Yoyo or Mamas&Papas Airo? Which compact stroller for a 16mo?

Sadeka • 28 Mar 2023

I’m really bad at making decisions! Can you help me decide between the Babyzen Yo-yo or Mamas and Papas Airo? Which one will be the most longest lasting for my 50th centile 16 month old? There are loads of reviews on the Yo-yo but hardly anything around on the Airo, does that mean it’s not a great stroller?

We have the Ocarro as our main pram which I love so thought the Airo might be just as good? Thanks in advance for any insight

Hey, Sadeka,

I personally am not a huge fan of the Yoyo as the seat is incredibly slanted, making the child inside half laying when sitting up, and also the seatback is very short, so for taller kids the head will not have much support. I personally would, because of that, go for the Airo rather than the Yoyo. Of course, there are downsides to both of them, especially as these are occasional-use travel strollers, so no all-terrain capability or super spacious seat in any of them - still in my eyes the Airo is more practical.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
