Armadillo City Stroller Review

Review of the ultra-compact Armadillo City Stroller from Mamas & Papas.

The ultra-compact Armadillo City was created by Mamas & Papas for city-dwellers that don't want to sacrifice comfort for a lightweight, easily foldable design.

We've been test-driving the Armadillo City stroller for the past six months across varying terrain and through crowded events from the Holiday Train Show to the Bronx Zoo. Not only is it lightweight (less than 16 lbs), but it folds forward with one hand, and is very spacious. It has a full recline seat for unexpected naps, an extra-large canopy to protect from the sun, and large storage basket for the ungodly amount of stuff we accumulate throughout the day. Just look at how much stuff the stroller is carrying above! As you can also see, there is a substantial difference between Armadillo City and the typical umbrella stroller in appearance, as well as feel, and maneuverability.

Since it easily folds into a compact size, it can quickly be stored in small trunks, tiny closets or just about anywhere. It's also been a great "mall stroller" for me since it fits in between aisles, and doesn't take up my entire trunk.

The forward, one-hand fold is a cinch. Here's the Armadillo City standing, folded forward halfway, and folded completely:


Look how perfectly it fits under the seats of the Bronx Zoo Shuttle:


Armadillo City retails for $269.99 and can be found in 4 colors: Lemon Drop, Black Jack, Blue Indigo, and Coral Pop. I have to say I am partial to the Lemon Drop. Yellow is such a fun color and really stands out!
