Recently, I had the pleasure of going on a much-needed family vacation with Mark, my husband, and my 21-month-old, Levi. Sun, sand, gourmet meals, bed made, and best of all, The BABYZEN YOYO+. Levi, my vocal, energetic and opinionated little man is typically not a fan of strollers or confinement in general. When we picked up the YOYO+, I was praying to the Gods, mermaids and palm trees that this sweet child of mine would let us push him around the resort (rather than carrying, dragging, and chasing). Well friends, he did. He absolutely loved the YOYO+, and mommy and daddy got some much needed hand-holding during our entire stay in Samana, Dominican Republic. Was it the airy and roomy seating area? The soft drive system? The perfect seat angle? I don’t know, and frankly, I don’t care – All I know is that BABYZEN designed a stroller that’s absolutely perfect for our little family!
THE COLOUR CUSTOMIZATION
Applause to BABYZEN for knowing us mamas are picky. You’re able to select whether you want a black or white frame as the base of your stroller. I chose the white! Next, the YOYO+ comes in a variety of stunning colours. Choose between blue, pink, grey, red, black or taupe. I had a very difficult time making this decision as all the colours are beautiful and quite unique to the stroller market. Loving my neutrals, I chose the taupe. Obsessed with my safari colour story!
TRAVEL MADE EASY
I’ll be fully honest here, I can sometimes be a mama-diva. I don’t do broken nails, manual labour (besides my sons birth 😉), or heavy lifting. The YOYO+ was as heavy as Levi was at 4 months, weighing in at around 13.7lbs. The one-hand folding and unfolding was so easy, and the shoulder strap and transport bag are perfect for parents on the go. Once folded, the YOYO+ fits in overhead plane AND bus compartments. Ladies, it’s so compact! The backrest can be inclined to 145° in several positions and features comfortable padding with a 5-point harness. Very low-key manual labour and only light lifting for this mama-diva!
STORAGE STORAGE STORAGE
XXL storage basket is such a bonus! I’m an over-packer, and we were able to fit 2 towels, a life-jacket and his lunch cooler in the storage basket. There’s also a larger zipper pocket right under the handlebars perfect for your wallet, water, or anything else your little heart desires.
Did you know that this stroller transforms from newborn to toddler? From birth, baby lies parent-facing and never leaves your sight. BABYZEN YOYO+ comes with a totally flat carrycot for infants, a 5-point harness, a 2-position pop-up canopy, a foot cover and a headrest. From 6 months and using the same frame, simply swap 0+ newborn fabrics for 6+ fabrics, and sit baby up to face the road. Wins all around!
LITTLE WHEELS, SMOOTH RIDE
Before experiencing the YOYO+, I questioned its little wheels and comfortability of the ride. Little did I know this stroller had 4-wheel suspension and some of the smoothest steering I’d ever experienced. One-hand driving, the exclusive ‘soft drive’ system is unparalleled and your child will be forever grateful.

Hats off to BABYZEN YOYO+!
Everything from customizing your own stroller, to the easy folding, unfolding and compactness once packed, the XXL storage basket and the soft drive system, this stroller gets a 5/5. Mark was thrilled that his wife-diva became so incredibly independent with no broken nails. Levi had his own space where he napped, ate and pointed at everything in sight. And me, well, I was beyond thrilled I had finally gotten my hands on our perfect travel stroller!
