Something midsize, more upright than the Babyzen Yoyo, that can pack away small(ish) and costs about £200

Quinn • 06 Jun 2023


I’ve been looking for the perfect stroller for ages.

My main points are more upright and compact foldable with footrest. I have a Babyzen and travel system but looking for something midsize that can pack away small(ish) with seat still attached.
Budget of about £200. Don’t want much I know haha!

Little one is 10months.

Hey, Quinn,

With such a budget, you may either check better strollers pre-owned, or a cheaper new option that simply won't be that awesome. A midsize forward-facing model would be your best bet here for sure.

From the cheaper ones, look at the Kinderkraft Grande or a Valco Snap if you can get your hands on one. Personally though I would look more at something like the Oyster Zero (Gravity) which is more than 200 - a second-hand Zero could also work nicely. Also look at something like the Mamas&Papas Armadillo or ABD Design Avus.

These are all flat-folding but definitely larger than the Babyzen. They are also much more upright but because of that lower weight and reasonable foldability, not totally upright either.

Your -very berry- Eli.

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