As I unboxed my first ever Colugo stroller—the Compact in Deep Blue (which is actually a very vibrant cobalt shade)—I thought to myself, now this is what strollers should be all about. Yes, practical (this stroller collapses with a one-handed, two-second fold, it has a UPF 50+ canopy and it only weighs 16 pounds…and it STILL has a basket), but also really cute and fun to push around.
The Compact Stroller ($285) comes in ten colors and styles, not including the seven limited edition colors currently available on the Colugo website right now. We’re talking leopard print, floral, sparkly rose, tomato red and even a sky-blue tie dye. So really, they’re ahead of the curve when it comes to stylish baby travel. They have black too, if that’s your go-to hue (which we get, really). But if you’re sick of basics and want to inject personality into your push, you’ve got to get a Colugo. And yes—maybe I am a little too excited about this stroller, but when you're pregnant in quarantine and your wine days are behind you, this is how you get your kicks, okay?
It is worth mentioning that the important “other” features are just as good as the style. The lining is wipeable and machine washable, and it features a full 90-degree seat recline. It can hold children up to 55-pounds and fits in the overhead bins of most commercial airlines. It’s really the ideal compact stroller for travel or for city-dwellers who can’t spare too much space. If you’re looking for something a little bigger, though, check out the Colugo Complete ($446).
