The upgraded all-time-favourite plane traveller

The Babyzen Yoyo 2 is the next generation of the world's most famous - first travel ultra-compact ever. This minimalist yet durable buggy can be used for an older child with its forward-facing seat, which doesn't offer a full recline, but also for a newborn with the 0+ textile set or a car seat attached with the optional adapters. Using the 0+ Newborn Pack, the stroller evolves into the Yoyo 0+ version, which uses the seat in a "reversed" lie-flat position suitable from birth. The Newborn Pack also includes a nest for the smallest of babies (internal measurements 70x26 cm).

The added features and the differences between the Babyzen Yoyo and the Babyzen Yoyo2

Thanks to the chassis made out of aluminum and steel alloy and plastics reinforced with fiberglass, the Yoyo 2 is super durable and easy to repair even after years of use thanks to the availability of spare parts while being eco-friendly - a used Yoyo can be recycled... Besides, the **Yoyo 2 version features a new Hytrel® system with elastomer suspension in the front, which is a unique technology using rubber. Other improvements of the Yoyo 2 are also the simpler-to-use buckle of the five-points harness, a higher weight capacity of 22 kg, and the leatherette handlebar divided in the middle with an added safety wrist strap. Over time, the Newborn Pack was updated to a 2021 full-size insert bassinet to an even comfier from-birth use.

In June 2021, the possibility of connecting two Babyzen Yoyo 2s with the Babyzen Yoyo Connect accessory was added, giving you the possibility of creating a double tandem for siblings or twins from birth out of the Yoyo stroller.

You have nine textile colors to choose from, and you can opt for either a white or a black chassis. Of course, the materials of the new Yoyo generation are more luxurious and with a playful feel. The padding can also be removed and fully washed. There are many optional accessories available separately, such as a leg rest and 6+ Color Pack - the set of upholstery and hood fabrics that you can change if you want to - depending on your mood.

parents say thx^^
  • truly compact and accepted on board of a plane
  • lightweight
  • quality
  • eco-leather-covered handlebar
  • newborn options
  • not a lie-flat seat
  • super short seatback
  • very very pricey

You'll go for this to be sure it will be taken on board when plane-traveling. And yes, it will. Also, the frame is high-quality, and it will last. The downsides are surely the super short seat back, and the canopy is also not the longest. And it is pricey - everything making it better is also sold separately.

I expected more improvements

3

I love the fabrics. So much better than before. Also, the grip of the PU leather handlebar is much more pleasant.

I expected more improvements, however, beacause I like the strap and the rubber-style suspension, but those are very minor and almost unnoticeable changes to me. And why is the rain cover not included?

Still that great travel buggy... but with a so-much-better-to-touch handlebar - so nice to push with that! I also love the blue patterned fabrics. I also got the sold-separately leg rest, and it's a huge help when my boy falls asleep (no dangling feet). However, I am still missing a one-hand fold (memory buttons on the handlebar would help that so much) and a longer backrest - I expected those to be in the Yoyo 2 generation somehow.

The higher weight capacity is nice, but what about it, if I cannot fit a larger toddler in the buggy without his head protruding so much over the backrest... And to that new suspension in the front - it is very nice to have it, but imho, I find it a very similar feel to the old one (we had that with my older daughter).

The only minus is the high price

  • beautiful
  • compact
  • functional
  • expensive

A great buggy, as it always was. The only minus is the high price, heightened even more by no accessories included. Plus would be the compactness truly accepted on board of pretty much every airline (even with the newborn kit attached).
