Kinderkraft Nubi 2

NEW 2023
The sleeker, budget-friendly compact auto-fold
see 1 parent review

The Kinderkraft Nubi 2 is a sleeker continuation of the Nubi travel stroller, released in 2023. Compact enough for some (not all) airlines to be taken on board as a piece of cabin luggage, the Nubi 2 boasts an auto-folding feature, a classic (not anymore T-shaped) bumper bar, and new colors as well as wheel design. It also offers 24kg weight capacity (however, a 5-6 years old will not really fit into the seat, which is good to consider with such numbers).

Featuring a lie-flat, reasonably spacious seat for the type, the Nubi 2 is a buggy good for occasional use and traveling with smaller babies as well as toddlers. A cup holder and an integrated mosquito net are included with the Nubi 2 model.

parents say thx^^

It pushes like a dream

  • The hood (SPF 50 + waterproof)
  • The ventilation
  • The suspension
  • The seat could be softer
  • No raincover
  • No footcover

I've been using Nubi 2 for about a month, and I'm very happy with the stroller. It pushes like a dream, the ride is very smooth, the suspension is great, and my baby sits very comfortably in it. The hood is nice, the seat wide, the ventilation just right, even the basket fits a lot more than it seems. At this price range, this is a great buy.

Your questions about the Kinderkraft Nubi 2


Ho Eli,

Im in Australia – does the Nubi2 is approved by aviation authorities here? I'm looking for a stroller cabin size to take into a International flight with me. Thanks :D

Hey, Bruna,

Honestly, this stroller has no official certification with airplane companies so the answer will most probably be no. It doesn't really have to have a certification, though, IF it fits the cabin requirements of your airline. It is 54.5 cm x 51 cm x 31.5 cm after folding, which is not the smallest, so perhaps check with your airline's requirements and go from there. But if you look for a certified stroller, there are only a few of them, and this one is not really one of them (pretty much no very budget-friendly stroller is, as it takes quite some money and design compromise), so make sure to look at the Joolze Aer+, the Bugaboo Butterfly or the Babyzeno Yoyo if that would be your priority.

I’ve recently purchased this stroller and when putting it together I’ve noticed that the back rest is slightly ending forward in the middle. I just wondered if this is normal and due to the way it folds?

Thank you

Hey, Katie,

Yes, that is right, and many strollers of this size have it like that. To make it so foldable while keeping the seat back reasonably high, there is a folding piece in the seat back part. The only other option would be to make it very short, e.g. as the Babyzen has it, but that makes it really short for taller toddlers.

Hi Eli,

Thanks for the info regarding on the removable wheels!

One more thing, is the frame structure of the mentioned stroller (KK Nubi2) made of aluminium or plastic at all? Or plastic shell with aluminium skeleton within?? As per the image shown in illustration above(as per advertized) and I am talking about specially on the side frames “T” joints connecting the top handle bar down to wheels.

Hi, Robert,

I am not completely sure I understand your question, but frame-wise, the main portion, the bars, are aluminum. However, and that is true for every modern stroller, the joints, attachment points, and small details are made of plastic - if it would be all metal, the compactness would be not easy (or not even possible) to achieve so easily, and the movability would also be worse.

So yeah, there is metal (aluminum) and there is plastic in multiple points, too.

Are those rear wheels of the mentioned stroller (Nubi2) removable for cleaning and maintenance such as removing hair and dirt collected during usage???

Hi, Robert,

The wheels of the Nubi 2 are removable, yes.

I'm looking for a stroller to use locally and internationally. we dont use strollers so much at home (mostly for shopping malls).

Will this stroller be ok for travelling as well (mostly Europe) - I have twins so I thought this stroller is budget-friendly. and also, will it last until 4 to 5 years of age?

Hey, noor,

This is a small stroller so it is actually nice for traveling and occasional, undemanding use such as shopping centers, yes. It is on the simple side so don't expect any crazy comfort on bumps or everyday multi-hour use though.

The folded dimensions of 54.5 cm x 51 cm x 31.5 cm should fit some airlines' requirements for cabin luggage, but it won't always fit, I'm afraid, so be sure to check with your airlines of choice if you will need to take it as cabin luggage.

Also, because of the small dimensions, the seat is not huge. It s nicely sized, however, and will last you some, but I would never expect a travel stroller to last until about 5 years unless your children are absolutely tiny, compared to most kids.

I have a beige Kinderkraft Nubi 2 - it’s been great for travelling with my one year old who is quite tall. However it has stained very quickly and I can’t find cleaning instructions for it. Do you have any advice on how to remove the stains? Thank you!

Hey, Coleen,

Here is my cleaning and maintenance guide I believe will help you. There's not totally easy way, the fabrics have to be washed by hand to not get damaged.

I’m looking for a stroller to take with us to New York for my tall three year old. On a tight budget can you recommend a pram?

Hey, Catriona,

A tall 3yo may be absolutely cramped in most of these small travel strollers, so you should be braced for that. Personally, I would rather go for quality - pre-owned, to give the child a bit more comfort, so a Joolz Aer has a taller seat and a much sturdier chassis.

The Recaro Lexa could also be a nice choice, price x performance-wise.

That being said, the Nubi 2 is reasonable, backrest-wise- Seat depth and length, not as great though, ad a tall child could have problems with their legs (not having too much room to put them). If it's for a limited, occasional, short-trips use, it can work, but personally I think you'll feel the price tag a lot.

Can I actually use this stroller from birth as it says in the description? Without buying a carrycot?
I can’t imagine it being okay for a newborn who doesn’t have head control!

Hey, Uma,

You are right, this is an occasional-use travel stroller mostly (plus a very low cost one), and that means a simple design, small wheels, weaker frame, not too much suspension. This stroller was never meant to be used as an only stroller, more like for holidays or short trips (like to the shops).

We at Strollberry recommend it from at least three months because of that, even if because of the lay flat, the manufacturer claims this to be ok from birth (the norm only requires a fully reclined position for that statement).

Hi Eli,

Would you please review the Kinderkraft NUBI2?

There are almost no review yet about it. I hope you can help me to decide to buy it or not. I need a travel buggy, budget, spacious for my 2-year-old son, and easy to handle.

Many thanks

Hey, Masi,

Lately, I have almost no time to review stuff, and I am sorry about that - as I create Strollberry in my free time, and need to work to get money to live (elsewhere), I don't get that much to do this (except early morning and late at night).

That being said, I can tell you my opinion about the KK Nubi 2 stroller of course - these are really budget models. I like the design, it's rather sleek and simple, though I do miss the T-bar the Nubi (1) had (children actually really like it, though parents not so much, I guess). The size is nice, but it is not as small as some other travel strollers, so you need to check the dimensions against your airline's requirements to be sure you can take it on board as a piece of cabin luggage. Space-wise, it is one of the better ones, especially the width of the seat - the length of the seat unit is not too long but it is OK for the type. The cup holder is a nice addition BUT it protrudes and it may be in the way a lot when pushing (I broke one like this with a similar design of being clicked on outward).

So, on paper, a very nice buggy for the price. If this is for very occasional use, it is an absolutely acceptable choice. BUT do count on the quality being lower - especially the fabrics, the plastics, and the overall sturdiness. Kinderkraft strollers, and pretty much anything this small and for this price, can be really felt when it is on that cheaper side, so any bad terrain, heavy use, very heavy child (or load in the basket = strain, regularly), or everyday, multi-hour use will make this wobbly, looser. It will also be a bit rattly, as this is really a smaller buggy. The push will be OK too but nothing special, and it is advisable to try it out before buying as it very much depends on your height and the center of gravity you need to really know if the lifting up a curb or turning will be a pain or comfy enough for you.

Hope this helps!
