Our readers wanted to know, and so we asked the experts to compare the two.
Having a comfortable and dependable stroller can be the factor that makes or breaks your everyday errands, day trips, and vacations – it makes traveling with little ones so, so much easier when you don’t need to check a stroller and can wheel it right onto the plane and stick it in the overhead bin.
When the post These Are the Top 5 Lightweight Strollers was first posted one year ago, it was before the Bugaboo Butterfly was available. Now that it’s a top contender, people want to know: how does it compare to the YOYO?
Note–there’s lots of great lightweight options in the other post (not only in the original post, but in the comments too!). So if you’re in the market for a lightweight stroller, and neither the Yoyo or Butterfly is for you, go back and check it out.
Bugaboo Butterfly was launched in Spring 2022, so it’s still selling strong. We’ve gotten lots of positive reviews from customers. Size-wise, the Butterfly is very similar to the YOYO2, and both even have the same price point at $449. Until the Bugaboo Butterfly came around, BABYZEN YOYO2 was the most popular in its category. And while YOYO2 is a couple of pounds lighter, and folds more compactly than the Bugaboo Butterfly (which makes it more likely to fit in an overhead bin on airplanes), the YOYO2 has a two-step fold, while the Butterfly has easy one-step collapsible fold. The Butterfly does weigh three pounds heavier, but that gives it a slightly sturdier push. The Butterfly’s sleek design also makes it easier to clean. Those are the main differences.
Here’s a handy comparison chart for those parents considering both of these strollers:
