Hauling around buggies can be exhausting, especially when you are going on holiday. Even the most lightweight models can be difficult to fit in the boot of the car or to store neatly away at home once you are back, which is why my ears pricked up when I heard on the grapevine about a brand new generation of buggy that promises to revolutionize travelling with a child. Imagine a buggy that folds away so compactly you can take it onto the plane as hand luggage? Meet the YOYO buggy by Babyzen.
This innovative buggy has already become a phenomenon in much of Europe and is about to hit the UK. Weighing just 5.8kg and folding down to an impressive measurement of 52 x 44 x 18 cm, it fully complies with size recommendation for cabin baggage.
It has a one of a kind folding mechanism which allows it to be opened and folded in seconds with just one hand and it can then be carried over your shoulder with the detachable shoulder strap.
The buggy has four-wheel suspension, a ‘soft-drive’ system so there is no need to lock the front swivel wheel, even on rough terrain, a reclinable backrest, removable and washable fabrics. It is suitable from 6 months up to 15kg, comes in three colours and costs £309.
