Could this be the cherry on the top of what’s already a much-loved stroller? Bonpoint and Stokke Yoyo (formerly Babyzen) have teamed up to bring a dash of Parisian je ne sais quoi to the YOYO² with L'iconique, its new colourway.

Inspired by the iconic cherries of the French fashion brand’s logo, this charming print can be found across the bassinet and 6 month+ seat, as well as a range of luxury accessories including a changing bag and super cute bunny.

Mother&Baby was at the launch event to test the stroller and discover the new collection, which is a playful but stylish print that manages to be both eye-catching and elegantly understated – think ‘quiet luxury’ for tots about town.

We’re already big fans of the YOYO² which made it on to our list of the best travel strollers. In fact, Mother&Baby’s Editor, Maria, described it as “a gamechanger" in her review, and this new colourway and kit only adds to that slick design and practicality.

YOYO² - made for city strolling and easy travelling

One key change in this Bonpoint kit is the addition of a larger sun visor to keep babies and toddlers cooler and out of the sun, as well as a ventilation window, peek-a-boo window to check they’re happy, and a soft cushion to add a touch more luxury to their journey. It’s available in a newborn kit and 6 months+ which should last your little one until they reach 22kg.

In terms of the general function of the stroller, it retains all the features and attention to detail that have made it a must for city mums and for travelling. It’s ultra compact, so can navigate around pavements, through restaurants, shops, and railway stations with ease, but is sturdy enough to cope with the demands of city living and travelling. At just 13.6lbs for the chassis and seat, it’s brilliantly lightweight and easy to carry over one shoulder with the handy strap.

As a true fan of the Stokke Xplory, I never thought I’d have my head turned by another stroller, but the intuitive and compact design of the YOYO² has done just that. Seeing how quickly and easily it could be folded into a size that could fit into the overhead luggage storage of most airlines has convinced this travel-obsessed mum that the YOYO² has the potential to take a lot of the stress out of travelling with tots.

The Bonpoint kit launched yesterday and has already sold out in the 6+ colour pack but Mother&Baby has it on good authority that it will be back in stock soon, so keep an eye out and get it while you can.
