Babyzen YOYO+, the Rock Star of Strollers

Whyyyy did I have to find my dream stroller now that I’m done having babies?

This is what I kept asking myself as I road tested the YOYO+ at Babyzen’s launch last month.  The stroller is strong and sturdy, but easily folds up into a bag you can carry on your shoulder.

And then you throw it open in seconds (with just one hand and a baby in the other arm if you are as fit as Iya Villania, the brand’s endorser) — and you feel just like Batman.

I didn’t expect to have feelings for  stroller but man, if I were having another baby, I would absolutely want a YOYO+.

If you are on the hunt for a perfectly portable, lightweight, and durable stroller, then search no more.  BABYZEN is a rockstar in the stroller world, known for its compact, versatile, and featherweight creations. Designed in France using top quality materials like high grade aluminum and engineering grade DuPont plastic for the frame.  No wonder superheroes like Gal Gadot swear by it!  Other YOYO+ celebrity users include Kim Kardashian, Keira Knightly, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, and Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, among others.

A stroller that you can carry on your shoulders means that it makes it great for travel. But it doesn’t end there. The BABYZEN YOYO+ is so compact that it fits in a plane’s overhead cabin compartment. In fact, it is the first stroller certified by the IATA for cabin baggage. It can be brought along as hand luggage, allowing the busy parent to zoom from place to place.

You may view and try out Babylon strollers at their Pop-Up Store in 3F, Bridgeway, Powerplant Mall, or purchase online through Babyzen Philippines’ social media accounts and
