Are you ready to make your little one a world traveler?
Need a stroller that can fit in the overhead compartment of an airplane?
Looking for something compact to leave in your trunk or at Grandma’s house?

Read on because we are sharing everything you need to know about our top compact strollers and how they compare - from the fold to being flyer friendly—let's dig in.

BabyZen YoYo²

  • Product Weight: 13lbs
  • Maximum Weight: 48.4lbs
  • Basket Capacity: 11lbs.
  • Cabin Approved: YES
Introducing the BabyZen YOYO² stroller! The YOYO² weighs just 13lbs and is compatible from birth using the YOYO² Newborn Pack. It has a very smooth push and a convenient zipper compartment right behind the handlebar that can safely store your cell phone or allow you to keep snacks close by. If you are using this stroller for travel, it is an ideal space to keep important documents such as your passport or boarding pass zipped away but within arm's reach. The fold makes it a winner to us – once you get the hang of it you could probably even fold it down with baby on your hip as you board your flight. Then go ahead and use the padded stroller strap for carrying it onboard then store it away in the overhead compartment and get ready to fly!

Say Hello to the Bugaboo Butterfly!
This stroller launched in the summer of 2022 and the fold has garnered it a ton of attention from families looking to have it all – and in a nice convenient little package.

With an impressive overall weight limit of 48 lbs. [yes, that’s just 2 lbs. less than the Donkey or Fox!] it boasts a no re-thread harness, impressive extendable 4-panel breezy sun canopy, and a basket that can hold 17lbs of whatever you need at your disposal. Go ahead and accessorize your Butterfly stroller with a bunch of compatible Bugaboo accessories.

Silver Cross Jet

  • Product Weight: 13lbs
  • Maximum Weight: 44lbs
  • Basket Capacity: 20lbs
  • Cabin Approved: YES
You are going to love the little details found on the Silver Cross Jet like the leatherette handle, protective cover, and ability to tow it behind you in an airport—or better yet – stroll with it right down the aisle to your seat. We love the extendable hood that offers lots of protection from the sun – including a pop out visor. Wheels on a travel stroller are generally small – but we love that Jet boasts lockable front swivel wheels ensure a smooth push for parents regardless of the elements. Finally, we are giving this stroller bonus points because it can stand freely when folded.

UPPAbaby MINU V2 Stroller

UPPAbaby Minu V2 | coming soon

  • Product Weight: 16.9lbs
  • Maximum Weight: 50lbs
  • Basket Capacity: 20lbs.
  • Cabin Approved: TBD upon launch
The UPPAbaby MINU V2 is launching this summer and has the same convenient features you would find in a full-size stroller like the CRUZ or VISTA.

What kind of features are we talking about? Well, the V2 model has a no re-thread harness, generous canopy, and 100% full-grain leather details. It also has an adjustable leg rest [some full-size strollers can’t even do that!] and the win for us is that the basket can hold up to 20lbs.! We love that the MINU is suitable from birth with the UPPAbaby sleep safe bassinet accessory—or easily pop your MESA car seat on top with the use of adaptors. This compact stroller can stand when folded and boasts a carry handle plus shoulder strap making it a breeze to bring with you on the go.

Looking for even more convenient and compact gear?

We can’t say enough good things about the CLIKK Highchair from Stokke. It weighs just 8.3lbs. and you can set it up in just a few easy clicks. It has a convenient storage bag [sold separately] that allows you to pack it up, pop it in your trunk, and never have to mess with mealtime. It's a great option for taking to and from the cottage or a girlfriend's house for an afternoon playdate. Read more about the CLIKK here.

Feeling a little anxious about your vacation plans? Don't forget to bring a carrier for baby wearing, sunscreen for summer adventures, and a UV tent for those sunny summer beach days! Have you decided which stroller is best for you? If so, this calls for a celebratory “we’ve landed” clap.

Happy Trails!
