The Yoyo Stroller Lightens Your Load

Stash Babyzen’s buggy in the overhead bin

yoyo stroller!

When you board an airplane with child in tow, you can practically see the thought bubbles atop fellow passengers’ heads. (Please, please, don’t sit next to me.)

But breeze down the aisle with your little one strapped into Babyzen’s new-to-the-U.S. Yoyo stroller — the first to comply with airline regulations for carry-on baggage — and we can see yours. (God bless anything that makes this fiasco easier.)

The slim (about twenty inches square when folded), trim (thirteen pounds), French-made cruiser lets you wheel little fliers straight to their seats, then you can collapse it and pop it into the overhead bin. (Yes, really.) In our road test, its bells and whistles competed with high-end umbrella strollers (a padded, reclining seat; generous sunshade; easy-access storage sling), but it folded and unfolded with only one hand. (Yes, really.)

Downsides: The handlebar could be a little high for petite moms, and the storage compartment is on the small side for real pack rats. But the fact that it collapsed to the size of a tote bag had us dreaming of steering the stroller through Paris with our baby, then tucking it under the table at a sidewalk cafe.

Where, of course, we’d be thinking: Forget the stroller. God bless this croissant.
