Let's talk about the super popular Bugaboo Butterfly! (There have been no updates to this stroller in 2023.) One of the world’s most luxurious baby gear brands released a compact travel stroller that packs a powerful punch at an amazingly budget-friendly price. The Bugaboo Butterfly has been amazingly popular since it came out, and it's one of our most popular lightweight strollers still now.
Bugaboo Butterfly Stroller Review
The Butterfly is a welcome addition to an already impressive lineup of luxury strollers. A whopping 50 pound weight capacity in the seat and an extra 17.6 pound weight capacity in the roomy underseat storage basket that's accessible from both sides. The basket is so flexible and well-designed, it springs back into shape once you empty it out.
Starring in the lightweight division at only 16.1 pounds, the Butterfly impresses with a one step, one handed fold, and an easy one-hand push, but customers who bought it have been telling us that the footbrake is not flip-flop friendly, so that's something to be aware of. It comes with a carry strap and is carry-on approved with folded dimensions of 17”x9”x21”.
As the saying goes, “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.” You’ll certainly be floating like a butterfly with the 4-wheel suspension, wear resistant tires.
Bugaboo of course never skimps on style. The Butterfly is available in four on trend color palettes to suit your individual style.
The roomy, nearly flat reclining seat has an easily adjustable harness. The tangle-free 5 point harness with a quick one button release (the harness buckle is not as speedy to use as some others, since you need to snap in each of the four harness clips separately every time you want to strap your little one into the stroller), and a 5-position fold-away leg rest that can be tucked under the seat when not in use. The handlebar stands at 39 inches high.
The huge breezy 4-panel sun canopy will protect little one from sun and wind while they enjoy the view in their comfortable seat. One of the 4 panels is a mesh peek-a-boo window for ventilation, visibility and coverage, which you can zip open or zip closed.
Fabrics on this stroller are soft, easy to clean and water repellant. The recline on this stroller has a bigger range than what you'll get on most other lightweight strollers.
There are two footmuff options for the stroller, the Bugaboo Universal footmuff and Bugaboo High Performance Winter footmuff, but keep in mind that the stroller won't fold with the footmuff in the stroller.
This compact stroller boasts the fastest fold of any Bugaboo stroller. It's a really cool collapsible fold, and it takes just a second! Just push the two buttons, and there you go!
The Bugaboo Butterfly is newborn compatible with the brand new car seat adapters for many infant carriers including Nuna, Maxi Cosi, Bugaboo, Clek and Cybex. This complete stroller includes everything you need to get going, even a Bugaboo rain cover!
Sometimes, a new stroller comes out and then we learn after people try it and use it for a while that they weren't happy with some details, but this stroller came out months ago and we've gotten barely any complaints. People are very happy with their Bugaboo Butterfly strollers. We hope you love the Butterfly as much as we do!
This stroller has been out for a while now, and the feedback we've been getting on it has been exceedingly positive. This is definitely one of our top-selling lightweight strollers right now. Shop the Bugaboo Butterfly now!
