Easywalker Miley: A cabin luggage-friendly travel stroller - EW Jackey, Miley, or the Babyzen Yoyo2?

Dili • 06 Feb 2023

Hi there!

Thanks so much for the detailed review. I am currently trying to choose a stroller for travel (mainly concerned about plane travel since having the gate checked stroller lost several times in the past on trips to Europe and back).

We currently have an UPPA Baby Vista V2 that was practical as a travel system when baby was smaller, and we could just pop the car seat in there, however now it is too bulky for travel. I am looking into a 2nd stroller for travel and I would really like to have the choice to bring it on the plane or gate check it. My baby is 1 year old and I am struggling between the Easywalker models (Myley or Jackie) or the Babyzen Yoyo2. I don't seem to find any side to side comparisons anywhere for these 2 manufacturers, so I am wondering if you had any tips or pros/cons for these strollers for air travel.

Hi, Dili,

I personally would not go for the Yoyo. Although the build quality is very nice, and the stroller is approved for cabin size, it is VERY slanted, with a VERY short backrest, and most children find it quite uncomfortable. Also, it gets quite expensive. If you don't mind the stroller not having a completely lie-flat recline, and are ok with a higher price, be sure to check the Joolz Aer or the Bugaboo Butterfly which are much taller in the seat back area, and much nicer to push from my experience.

From the Easywalker models, if that is your only other option except for the Yoyo 2, it depends on the age of your child. The difference is that the Jackey can accept a car seat, and folds automatically, you just start the fold, "throwing" the handle forward. With a larger toddler, none of these is very important, and you might rather go for the Miley that has a slightly taller seat back and, from my point of view, a nicer canopy.

Your -very berry- Eli.

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