REVIEW: The YippieYo crossbuggy claims to be able to tackle any terrain from mountains to snow
We love to go on family walks and Alice has always been a good walker, but there are times when she gets tired and actually since being at school she is even more tired. She is getting too big and tall to go on Andy’s shoulders, which was always our fall back option, so what now?
Do you have young children and a desire to adventure more with them in the outdoors? Are you tired of conventional prams holding you back from exploring fells, forests or beaches? We’ve discovered the perfect solution – an all terrain crossbuggy that frees you up to explore. In this advertising feature, we review the unique YippieYo...
Overall the YippieYo gets a big thumbs up from the Mamma Fairy house, it delivers exactly what it promises, its safe, its comfortable and suitable for all terrains. We received this before Christmas and it gets very regular use in this house.
As we are in the countryside, the Crossbuggy fits in so well and it really does turn heads. There are loads of beach and woodland walks to do local to where we live and as the Crossbuggy is such brilliant quality and it is solid and sturdy so we know we can use it anywhere without any problems at all.
Enter the Yippie Yo Crossbuggy. It is like no stroller you’ve seen before. The Crosbuggy “stroller” is a mix between a cart and child carrier. It is a two-wheeled buggy with a lengthy handle. It seats two and has a netted storage area in the back for small objects. The handle is curved at the end and has a hand brake. The sturdy aluminum construction is an engineer’s dream – it’s strong but lightweight, durable but playful. Further, it’s stable on various surfaces and inclines.
Looking for an all terrain buggy but finding it hard to choose which three or four wheeler best suits you? Stop right there and think about this: how about a two-wheeler. As buggy designers are working on little refinements to their honed masterpieces to compete in the all terrain market, one new upstart hopes to turn that market on its head.
Every now and again, it’s good to try something different. Never mind 4 wheelers or even 3 wheelers, this is a beautifully designed, heavy-duty 2 wheeler that will tackle any off-road terrain, unlike any other pushchair you’ve seen. Oh, and you pull it. Does that make it a ‘pullchair?’ YippieYo has effectively created a new category of child transport.
So when we heard about YippieYo it looked like a logical next step for us. The YippieYo Crossbuggy is a pull along vehicle for children that looks like a cross between a pushchair seat and a trailer. We were sent a YippieYo Crossbuggy to review and I loved it immediately. The times we use a pushchair are purely the big days out and the YippieYo Crossbuggy looked perfect for that.
... The YippieYo Crossbuggy has been nominated for the German Design Award 2016.
... As if by magic, just as I was contemplating our options I heard from YippieYo who have created their unique Crossbuggy. They combined elements from a pushchair, a hand-drawn cart and a child carrier to create an all-terrain buggy that is highly manoeuvrable, durable and with space for two children aged from one to six. Although we only have one child, we knew the extra space would come in handy for bags.
