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^^

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

4
  • 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 :)

Will go over almost any terrain

4

A very spacious, very maneuverable and collapsible buggy that will go over almost any terrain. Large basket, reclining position is great for baby. The downside for some may be the slightly rattling wheels, but it's not a big deal.

  • lightweight, compact
  • easy to operate (even with one hand)
  • handles different terrains
  • nice price
  • attractive appearance
  • wide seating, full lie-flat option
  • small bassinet + the need to buy adapters for it (or even for the car seat)
  • all accessories (drink holder, umbrella, umbrella, footmuff, mosquito net, ...) at extra cost

The stroller caught my eye right away, mainly because of its looks and its price. I bought it on the internet in an English online shop and it was for a nice price in a set with a bassinet, adapters and the pushchair unit. I didn't regret my choice for a moment.

The stroller is beautiful, it can be folded easily with one hand. We have a big dog, hence the busy car boot - the Oyster Zero can be folded and then put in an IKEA bag, so I put it behind the driver's seat and it doesn't stain the inside of my car. The stroller traveled with us on the plane and to the sea. It conquers different terrains with ease - a sandy beach, a gravel hill, a forest path, ...

It's light, I have no problem to carry my little one in it (he's 14 kg) up the stairs. It's also beautiful. My friend has a Valco Snap, and it looks pretty cheap next to the Oyster. The only disadvantage it has over the Valco is that it folds inside out, so it's easier to get dirty (her Valco also includes an apron, the Oyster doesn't).

The gel-like wheels are ok, easy to clean, nothing gets caught on them. Just be careful and take off and wash the front and rear wheels from time to time so you don't get the lock dirty and malfunctioning.

A huge advantage is the ability to put the stroller in the full recline position and the long hood, so there is no need to have a diaper over it. As my son was born in August and has gotten bigger since he was a baby, he grew out of the bassinet pretty quickly and honestly looked like in a coffin in it. I don't really recommend the bassinet, but since I was buying the stroller more based on the seat, I didn't mind. In the winter, I bought a used older X-lander model for a transitional period (it was absolutely not good - it was heavy as hell and I almost didn't get through the front door with it), and then a Dorjan Danny Sport Baby Boat pram - similar problem, and most importantly it looked cheap. So I'm pretty spoiled thanks to the Oyster, and I have to say it's a stroller I recommend to everyone I meet.

  • Lightweight
  • Large canopy
  • Super handling
  • Easy to clean
  • Material dries quickly
  • Folds quickly
  • Large basket
  • Plenty of room for baby when he sleeps
  • UV visor gets scratched by folding over time

Lightweight, fast folding and very good handling of the stroller.

I will miss using it

4

I liked it and I will miss using it :-)

  • Design
  • Easy handling
  • Spacious and easy to adjust
  • Stroller folding (especially in winter)
  • Small basket

This stroller really fulfilled almost all of my requirements. It's nice, easy to handle, not heavy overall, but spacious, adjustable...

A little problem, in my opinion, is the folding. In the winter to fold it in the car is a real pain. The dirty wheels get the stroller dirty. If you have muffs on the stroller, they, too... the biggest disadvantage for sure. The fact that it struggles to handle driving in the winter after snow is probably normal - with such classic, not large wheels. Only inflatable ones can be used in the snow. But even with these it's not a tragedy, it just takes more patience.

And the basket under the stroller is quite small for me compared to other strollers. But that's just a detail :)

Satisfaction at 80 %

  • Quickly collapsible
  • Large
  • Lightweight
  • Waterproof even without a rain cover
  • You won't get a puncture 😊
  • Low chassis
  • Cannot turn the seat, it is only facing the direction of travel

Satisfaction at 80 %. You can buy a bassinet and a car seat as well.

  • Wide seat for baby (comfortable)
  • Pocket on the back (for phone, keys, change, etc.)
  • Nice basket
  • Nice design
  • Second hand not too expensive either
  • Long canopy (cool thing!).
  • Lightweight
  • Folded well in my car
  • Faded colour (black pushchair)
  • No inflatable wheel option (again, you don't have to deal with a flat wheel)
  • Can't face mom
  • Not a great brake

So the transition from the 3in1 system to this pushchair was noticeable. Especially on the wheels, which rattled quite a bit, but over time I got so used to it that I didn't really mind (it was just the difference from the inflatable wheels we had before). My brake was knocking, but that could just be a defective piece. I had a black one that was squeaking a bit. And finally, just kind of a weird pulling the backrest up into a sitting position, you get the feeling it can't last long, but it does and it's perfectly fine.

It folds up quite well in the car and is really light! 🙂

Overall, I was really VERY happy with the stroller!!!🙂🙂🙂👍
