Bugaboo Butterfly Vs Joolz Aer Stroller - Full Comparison

Bugaboo Butterfly Vs Joolz Aer Stroller - Full Comparison

Posted in bugaboo butterfly, joolz aer

Hey moms! If you’ve been following our blog recently, you’ve heard about the Bugaboo Butterfly, the latest stroller in Bugaboo’s luxury stroller lineup! We’ve been getting some questions about how this stroller compares to some of our other popular travel strollers, like the Joolz Aer, the Babyzen, and even Minu. Now you can find out how the Bugaboo Butterfly matches up to the Aer, and what advantages there are to each!


The Butterfly is a classy and posh compact stroller, while the Joolz Aer has a more chilled, casual look we love, with a brown leather handlebar on all color choices except the black for that modern touch, and a less curved, more straight handlebar than the Bugaboo Butterfly.  


One of the greatest benefits of the Butterfly is that it has an adjustable 5-position hide-away legrest, to keep your little one really comfortable all ride long. When you're not using it, you can adjust the legrest so that it's under the seat so that you don't really see it. 


The Butterfly has more of a recline than the Joolz Aer, which has just a partial recline. Also, because the Joolz has a zippered recline, its more difficult to recline the seat while the child is in it, unless your child leans forward. The Butterfly is super simple to recline even when you've already began your walk! The Joolz is lighter than the Butterfly, but the Butterfly has a sturdier feel. 


The Butterfly folds up in a second with a cool collapsible fold. The Aer also folds up pretty fast, and like the Butterfly, it can be folded up with just one hand! 

Storage Space

The Bugaboo Butterfly is slightly more practical, with a much more spacious underseat basket, and it has more room for your bags after you’ve spent the day shopping around town! However the Joolz Aer has a little pocket in back of the seat, something which the Butterfly doesn't offer. The pocket doesn't have space for much, but it can be convenient. 


The Bugaboo Butterfly does not have a flip-flop friendly brake, so if you'll be using the stroller with sandals, that might not be too much fun. The Joolz Aer does have a flip-flop friendly brake, so if that's important to you, we'd recommend the Aer

Bugaboo Butterfly Vs Joolz Aer Price

The Bugaboo Butterfly is a super well-priced travel stroller, with a price to rival the Joolz Aer’s! The Butterfly is $449, and that’s actually even more affordable than the price on most Joolz Aer strollers, which are $449. (There are two colors, Splendid Blue and Absolute Pink, that are $449 each, but those aren’t from the newer colors.) With the Bugaboo Butterfly, you’re getting unrivaled quality at the most affordable price!
