With having three children and being a review blogger, we have had the opportunity to test more than our fair share of baby gear. With all of that experience, I have an ongoing checklist when looking at anything - especially strollers. Number one on my list would be that the stroller must be compact. Number two - it has to be easy to fold(and pop back out). Enter the Armadillo Stroller by Mamas & Papas.
One problem with many compact strollers, is that they don't recline(or that they barely do). What good is a stroller if your toddler can't snooze in it? The Armadillo has a great full recline. The storage basket is also huge, which is a must in my eyes. Some brakes on other strollers are so hard to use. I end up having to bend down and use my hand. Not the Armadillo. The brake is extremely easy to use!
The Armadillo is extremely easy to fold. My six year old can even do it - with one hand. It is also light enough for him to carry.
The canopy is the perfect size. It covers her completely and has a little window so that I can look in on her. The seat is plenty wide and has great padding for optimum comfort.
As if all of that wasn't enough, it also features a five point safety harness. This stroller includes so many amazing features even with its compact size.
My only issue is that my daughter hits her head on the top. She isn't even 2 1/2 in this picture and her head is all in the canopy. Every time she rides in this stroller, her bow gets stuck in the canopy and it pulls her hair when she leans forward. The canopy is removable, but I love the size of it and I like having it to shield sun or possibly rain. If they made the back(or canopy) higher and added a cup holder, it would be the perfect stroller in my eyes.
