The Oyster Zero is a light stroller with a wide, spacious seat. It cannot be reversed, but you can recline it flat, suitable even for infants that cannot sit independently. For the smallest ones, a carrycot and adapters for a car seat are also available. The advantage of this stroller is its compact, one-handed fold. The smaller wheels with soft suspension are easy to maneuver. They can handle smooth as well as rougher urban terrain. A good center of gravity is also helpful when negotiating curbs. The Oyster Zero was released in the second half of 2017 in the limited Black Stealth edition with black textiles and chassis contrasting with the burgundy bumper bar and handle.

In 2021, Babystyle's Oyster Zero evolved into an auto-folding iteration, the Oyster Zero Gravity with the autofolding function.

parents say thx^^

Very happy with it

4
  • Superb pushchair

I've only used it for two days, but I'm very happy with the Oyster Zero 😊

An outstanding stroller

5

An outstanding stroller, a lot of satisfaction 😍😍😍

100% suitable for what we bought it for

5
  • Lightweight
  • Collapsible
  • Easy to drive, one-handedly - completely at ease
  • Spacious
  • Superb canopy
  • One disadvantage is that you can't change in the direction of travel of the kid, but so far we don't mind

Lightweight, compact, handy... 100% suitable for what we bought it for.

My little one sleeps great in it

  • Wide seat
  • Suspension
  • Design
  • None

Excellent, the best - my little one sleeps great in it 🥰❤️

Už na prvý pohľad to bola láska

5
  • Suspenion on all 4 wheels
  • Extended canopy
  • Easy folding/unfolding
  • Baby has plenty of room
  • Spacious basket that is easy to access
  • Adjustable footrest (2 positions)
  • Any backrest position you need
  • Easy handling
  • It is very lightweight (I usually carried it in one hand, and our not-so-light lady in the other :-) )
  • Takes up just a little space in the car
  • The colour does not fade even in the sun

I was looking for a stroller that would fit easily in my small car. Since we don't have a lift, it had to be lightweight. I wanted our little girl to have plenty of room and not be "cramped" in it; it had to be reclinable and seduce me by its looks. These were the criteria I used... However, I didn't know at the time that I would also use the extended canopy so much - I saw it as an extra rather than a necessity.

It was love at first sight 😍 The leather handle with the handle gives it a touch of pizzazz and just goes to show that details matter 😊 And I'm still happy with my decision.

P.S. It can handle the terrain with ease, it's not just for city streets :-)

  • low weight of the stroller
  • folds compactly - fits in a smaller car boot
  • very spacious seating area
  • back positioning is belt-operated - many positioning options
  • beautifully maneuverable
  • large, extendable canopy
  • ventilation window
  • spacious basket under the stroller
  • the big weakness is the brake - it is tiny, hard to reach and I have to press it 3 times before it finally brakes
  • the seat can't be reversed, but there is a window in the canopy that allows me to see the baby
  • I sometimes wash the seat cover in the washing machine, but it was necessary to cut a hole in the footrest to remove the chipboard - the manufacturer should have made a Velcro hole so that we didn't have to cut the board out
  • it doesn't have a rotating handle, plus the handle is very close to the pram so it's hard to lift when I'm driving up a kerb
  • it folds outwards so it can get dirty
  • the rain cover does not have a window
  • you have to buy the leg cover and bag separately, it was not included in the price

This gorgeous stroller won my heart mainly because of its low weight, great maneuverability and the extra extendable canopy.

Nothing to fault this with

  • Extended sun canopy
  • None

Completely happy with it. Nothing to fault this with.

I had the opportunity to try it out at a friend's house and compared to others, such as the Valco Snap, which I originally wanted to buy, it seemed much more solid and of higher quality. The frame is aluminum; the stroller is sturdy, it doesn't wobble.

The seat is one of the widest on the market - but the stroller itself is not wide. I can fit in the smaller aisles of the store and in an old train wagon without any problem. It's a good compromise between an umbrella buggy and a pushchair. It's not for every terrain, but it gets a lot of mileage, is foldable, quick to fold, lightweight - so fine for traveling. The space under the stroller holds a lot even though the basket doesn't look very big at first glance. I also like the zippered extendable canopy.

The wheels on the new collection are sturdier, so they don't wear as fast. The stroller is very easy to steer with one hand, it turns beautifully... Disadvantages - the seat is not fully upright, the legs are a little higher - or the child sits in a "V", which can be corrected by a sewn belt for the seat.

I'm a bit annoyed with the brake, which has to be pushed on a lot to activate. Reclining/inclining the seat is also harder - sometimes I can do it with one hand, sometimes I have to use both - it depends on how I grab it. But maybe it's because it's new and not second hand. So the positives prevail and I would choose this stroller again :)

I can't have a better stroller

  • Very light
  • Compact
  • Folds and unfolds quickly
  • Fits in a smaller car boot - we are very happy with it
  • The wheels don't rattle, and we have potholes in the village
  • None so far

Huge satisfaction. I can't have a better stroller.

  • spacious seating area
  • sufficient suspension (I can be slightly "rocked"
  • compact (better than an umbrella buggy in my opinion)
  • lightweight
  • non-reversible seating area (if it was, it would not be so spacious :))

I would like to rate this stroller very positively :) I have changed many strollers, but I am extremely satisfied with this one. If I had known, I would have bought it from birth :)

Your questions about the Babystyle Oyster Zero

1)

Does the oyster have a spacious seat and high hood height - away from toddlers head? Looking for a shopping/pavement stroller.

Thank you

Hi, Eli,

Funny, you sent your question about the Oyster Zero while I was literally just recommending it to another mom. Well, YES, the seat is huge. It doesn't have the tallest backrest, but it is tall enough for a 3-3.5 years old, and what's better, the seat is very wide. I could fit two of my boys in at the same time, occasionally, when the need arose. The hood is quite up high, so ther is space for the head even for a taller toddler, I would say up to those 3.5-4 years of age. The Oyster Zero is super light so there is a bit less padding and not creazy much features, but it is super nice to push, very light, and that canopy is just awesome.
