BabyZen Yoyo vs Bugaboo Butterfly - Full Comparison

Posted in

Whether you’re going in and out of cars or flying on vacation, when it comes to choosing a stroller that keeps up with your active lifestyle, both the BabyZen Yoyo and the Bugaboo Butterfly stand out as top contenders. With lightweight designs and easy open-and-fold mechanisms, both deliver on all fronts. 


The 13.6 lb BabyZen Yoyo is light as a feather, while the Bugaboo Butterfly weighs a bit more at 16.1 lb due to its sturdier push. 

The features of both strollers are geared towards baby-friendly comfort, and every detail is designed with your convenience in mind.

The Bugaboo Butterfly has a tall, deep seat and an adjustable footrest that integrates as a carry handle. And for stashing essentials, the BabyZen Yoyo has a convenient zip pocket in the back.  

Check out the multi-position reclining backrests, extendable canopies, and easy harnesses on both strollers. Each can be worn over the shoulder with the complimentary carry straps.

Of course, both of these brand-name, signature strollers are a style statement with their solid frames and beautiful fabric. 


Folding and Unfolding  

While the BabyZen Yoyo requires a simple 2-step fold as opposed to the one-handed fold and unfold feature of the Bugaboo Butterfly, it folds more compactly, and is more likely to fit in an overhead bin on a plane.

The Bugaboo Butterfly  folds with all its wheels down, but if you’re using the footmuff in cold weather, you’d have to take it off beforehand. The BabyZen Yoyo folds with two wheels on top and two on bottom, and when using the footmuff it can be left on.


The BabyZen Yoyo is agile and smooth, making it a versatile choice for city strolls and easy steering. With 6-inch rear tires,the Bugaboo Butterfly  has excellent maneuverability and a sturdy push with only a gentle touch.

Recline and Newborn Compatibility 

When  you want your baby to lean back and drift off in the stroller, the Bugaboo Butterfly provides a near-flat recline while the BabyZen Yoyo offers a more upright backrest.

Looking for one stroller to take you through all stages? The frame of the BabyZen Yoyo can accommodate the Yoyo newborn bassinet, while you can purchase an adapter for the Bugaboo Butterfly and attach the Bugaboo Turtle Air by Nuna car seat to its frame.


Store your baby travel essentials in the convenient underseat baskets. The BabyZen Yoyo’s basket supports up to 11 lbs, while the Bugaboo Butterfly boasts a larger basket with a 17.6 lb weight capacity.
