Ultimate travel stroller review 2018

By Nomad Mum

Deutsche Version

We have been traveling the world for 1.5 years with our baby (now toddler). We now have a second peanut in tow (two under two!) and were researching for the best stroller for traveling. So here is our ultimate travel stroller review 2018!

These were the most important criteria:

  1. Carry-on: Fits in the overhead compartment of a plane and is accepted as carry-on with most airlines. A very small stroller size is also important for limited space in taxis, small cars or even Tuc Tucs.
    AND
  2. Recline: Able to recline the back, so that toddler or the baby can sleep in there.

These are our Top 3 Choices:

 

1. Babyzen Yoyo Travel Stoller

It is the smallest stroller with a reclining seat. It is widely known among airlines, so you shouldn’t have any problems when taking it aboard. It has 4-wheel suspension and will absorb the bumps for your baby. Moreover, it has the tallest handle hight.

Children age / weight with the 6+ set: from 6 months – 3 years / 40 lbs (18 kg)
Folds into: 20” x 17” x 7”           (52 x 44 x 18 cm)
Stroller weight: 14 lbs               (6.2 kg)
Stroller size: 42” x 17” x 34”     (106 x 44 x 86 cm)
Handle hight: 42“                       (107 cm)

Special feature:
It is possible to buy a newborn pack (the 0+ set) and use it from 0 months on.
You can attach a car seat to it.

 

2. Mountain Buggy Nano Travel Stroller

It is slightly bigger than the Babyzen Yoyo when folded. It only has slight 2-(back) wheel suspension.

Children age / weight: from 6 months – 4 years / 44 lbs (20 kg)
Folds into: 22“ x 20“ x 12“        (54x 51 x 30 cm)
Stroller weight: 13 lbs              (5.9 kg)
Stroller size: 39” x 22” x 41”    (98 x 56 x 104 cm)
Handle hight: 39”                      (98 cm)

Special feature:
It is possible to buy a newborn pack, and use it from 0 months on.
You can attach a car seat to it.

 

3. Recaro Easylife Travel Stroller

Recaro is actually known for its sports car seats and aircraft seats. Therefore, the company is very reliable. Its travel stroller is slightly bigger than the Babyzen Yoyo and the Mountain Buggy Nano when folded.

Children age / weight: from 6 months – 3 years / 33 lbs (15 kg)
Folds into: 23” x 19” x 26”       (58 x 49 x 26 cm)
Stroller weight: 13 lbs             (5.7 kg)
Stroller size: 43” x 19” x 35”   (110 x 49 x 90 cm)
Handle hight: 41”                      (103 cm)

 

The last stroller that fits as carry-on AND has a recline position is the Qbit+. Unfortunately, the recline position is not as flat as the above strollers so we did not take it into consideration.

 

Alternatives:

Worlds smallest stroller: Pockit (no recline position!)

If you do not mind not having a recline position, this stroller is quite handy. We found this stroller very light and small when folded. But it did not feel as robust as the above strollers.

Children age / weight: from 6 months – 4 years / 37 lbs (17 kg)
Folds into: 14” x 12” x 7”             (35 x 30 x 18cm)
Stroller weight: 9.5 lbs              (4.3 kg)
Stroller size: 28” x 18” x 40”     (71 x 45 x 101 cm)
Handle hight: 40”                        (99 cm)

 

Now it’s up to you to choose what stroller serves your needs best!

We have chosen the Babyzen Yoyo 6+. After using it intensively for almost 3 months we are more than happy with the robustness and compactness of this stroller!

 

 

Finally, we would like to disclose that we received the Babyzen stroller for free. However, this article and our research was done long before we teamed up with Babyzen.
