With holiday travel upon us, what parent wants to haul a heavy, bulky stroller around an already crowded airport? That’s right—none. Meet Mamas & Papas’ Armadillo stroller, a full-size ride that folds up so compact and carries light so you don’t have to sacrifice your child’s comfort when you’re trying to pare down on your gear.
While trying to get my 18-month-old from check-in to the gate for a recent cross-country flight, the Armadillo helped us make the move smoothly. It drives easy and the fold-up is a breeze, easy to do with just one hand (which, as any parent knows, is a necessity because we’re lucky if we have even one hand free while shepherding little ones around). The shopping basket is spacious for carrying spare necessities like jackets and toys and the mechanism for raising and lowering the seat is easy and quick. My four-year-old figured out how to work the brake right away, making sure there’s no way his little brother will roll away.
We’re out of the infant car seat stage in my house, but I like the fact that the Armadillo is compatible with several top brands, including the Chicco Key Fit 30, Aton, Maxi Cosi Cabrio Fix and Maxi Cosi Pebble.
The Mamas & Papas Armadillo has a suggested retail price of $279.99 and is available in five fashions including lemon drop (shown), black licorice, blue fizz, coral pink and stripe.
