BUGABOO BUTTERFLY VS BABYZEN YOYO2

With the holiday season upon us, shopping for a compact stroller is a top priority to ease travel stress with younger kids and babies. 
From restricted boot space to airport queues, flight delays and long walks in between, a good quality compact stroller will see you through your travel adventures.
With this in mind, we've decided to compare the popular BABYZEN YOYO2 and the BUGABOO BUTTERFLYcompact travel strollers.
 
AN INTRO...
 
BUGABOO BUTTERFLY
 
Marketed for city adventures, the BUGABOO BUTTERFLY offers a 1-second fold and unfold, super compact and still packed with Bugaboo signature features and style. It's Bugaboo's latest compact stroller to add to their range of best-selling pushchairs, and it replaces the now discontinued Bugaboo Ant.

BABYZEN YOYO2
 
A first in the compact/travel stroller category, the YOYO is one of the best-known compact strollers on the market. Just look around on your next European holiday or city break; you'll surely see a YOYO on every corner and by every poolside. This french brand has recently been acquired by the uber-cool Norwegians over at Stokke.

THE FOLD & WEIGHT
 
With suitcases and bags and never-ending luggage, your travel stroller must be lightning speed quick to fold and unfold and compact enough to go through security scanners and overhead compartments on planes, trains and boats.
 
BUGABOO BUTTERFLY
 
1 second, 1 hand fold, 1 second, 1 hand unfold = all done with baby in tow. 
 
IATA approved for storage in overhead compartments on air crafts, the most compact fold is a mere;
45 x 23 x 54 cm/17.72 x 9.06 x 21.26 in
 
Weighing in at 7.3kgs - don't worry; the shoulder strap makes light work of carrying your folded Butterfly.

2-second fold (an extra couple of steps) 2 hands required, plus a little bending down. But we can deal with the extra steps for an ultra-compact fold of just;
52 x 44 x 18 cm/20.5 x 17.3 x 7.1 in

Weighing in at a light 6.2kgs - and also features a hand shoulder carry strap.
 
IATA approved, and we've tried and tested on both Ryanair and Aerlingus aircraft for a compact overhead stowage success!
 
THE SEAT & WEIGHT CAPACITY
 
BUGABOO BUTTERFLY
 
The seat offers an easily adjustable recline into a semi-reclined position; this, combined with a generously sized extendable canopy with added ventilation, provides a comfortable place for your child to rest. The built-in leg support is an added benefit for younger children and toddlers and creates an ergonomic seating space.
 
The seat is suitable from approximately 6 months – 4 years old (max 22 kg/48.50 lbs).

The YOYO2 trumps the BUGABOO BUTTERFLY when it comes to transport solutions for newborns and babies under 6 months. The YOYO2 can accommodate a newborn up to 6 months, using the YOYO2 Newborn Pack (a fabric carrycot that can fold with your stroller frame) or a YOYO2 Bassinet ( it's a detachable carrycot and doesn't fold with the frame).

From 6 months and up to 22kgs, the YOYO2 seat pack offers a semi-reclinable position, so your child will dose to the land of nod comfortably, but the seat does lack an extendable canopy. But there is an option if required to purchase a YOYO2 Parasol for extra sun protection. 
There is also an option to purchase a seat leg rest for extra comfort and support for younger children; we like that this comes included as standard with the Bugaboo Butterfly.
 
THE EXTRAS
 
BUGABOO BUTTERFLY
 
From car to streets, you can attach a range of car seats to the Bugaboo Butterfly using the Bugaboo Butterly Car Seat Adapters ( purchased extra). This takes your compact stroller into a complete travel system, so when travelling overseas, you can jump into a taxi with your car seat and still have the option to dock and go with your car seat on your stroller.

 For rainy days you can purchase the rain cover separately to keep tiny toes dry when out and about.

The under-seat basket will store up to 8kgs, so you can keep all the essentials close to hand; the basket is easily accessible from the front and back of the stroller.

BABYZEN YOYO2
 
Team most major brand infant car seats or the BABYZEN CAR SEAT with the BABYZEN CAR SEAT ADAPTERS to complete a travel system solution.

You can also attach the car seat without removing the newborn pack by simply folding the fabrics back.
 
Rainy days are covered with rain covers for the bassinet, newborn pack and 6+ months seat; all are purchased additionally. Footmuffscan be bought and used in the BABYZEN YOYO2 6+ months' configuration, providing added insulation for chilly days.
 
Take your BABYZEN YOYO2 into a double or even triple stroller, using the BABYZEN CONNECT frame ( allows a second seat, bassinet or newborn pack) to accommodate 2 children at once. And add the BABYZEN BOARD for a seated buggy board solution for a child up to 20kgs ( most suitable for children aged 2-5 years).

The basket is a little tricker to access, with the front blocked by the frame structure and the basket itself holds just 5kgs.
BABYZEN YOYO DOUBLE WITH CONNECT 
Overall the YOYO2 definitely offers a broader range of added accessories to tailor the use of your YOYO2 to your lifestyle. But the BUGABOO BUTTERFLY's added features such as inbuilt leg-rest, extendable canopy and extra under-seat storage, makes this compact stroller a very strong contender.
