A city buggy needs to be light weight and portable when not in use, but still comfortable for your child and not feel like it will fall over at the first curb it encouters. The Yezz fits the first requirements, as it folds down to ressemble a crossbow when not in use, the elasticated strap meaning it can be slung over your shoulder and you can do other things. I've had one child in a back carrier, another on one arm and the Yezz in the other hand while getting off a Tube train in rush hour, and on another occassion I got on a London bus with my toddler son sat in it, taken him out and sat him on a seat, then folded the buggy (while the bus is moving) and carried the buggy and him up to the top deck, where the buggy went between my legs and my son on my lap. It's that portable. As an ultralight buggy, it has a basic sun hood, the sides aren't that high, and it lacks the ability to recline the seat or to raise the foot support, but given its usefulness, this isn't a major issue. The handles fold down when carrying, so don't expect to be able to adjust their height, and weight is an issue, if you want to carry the buggy when upright, there are only a few points this can be achieved, though it is possible. The wheels are like roller blade wheels, with really smooth ball bearings making them roll really well. There is little in the way of suspension in them, so it's tough going over rough ground. Yet the buggy flexes as it goes round corners, making it really agile on pavements. The wheels are spread quite wide for stability, so while it won't fit through a standard Tube gate (like the Phil & Teds Dot), but as a three wheeler, it turns on a penny, so it perfect for public transport.Read more ›
