Last week, I shared a roundup of travel essentials that made a recent trip with our two little ones just a little bit easier for me and my husband. While each item on my list played an important role in making our trip a success, the real star of the show, especially when we were making our way through airports, was the Quinny Yezz. This amazing little stroller is definitely worth its weight—and then some—in gold.
Maybe my kids are naturally good travelers, or maybe the stars aligned just right, but we were really lucky to have an uneventful trip—that is, after our mad dash to catch our first flight because my husband and I are perpetually late. To speed up the process when we arrived at the airport, my husband dropped me and the kids off to check in and start making our way through security while he parked the car. And it was at that moment that I discovered how invaluable the Yezz would be throughout our travels. With the baby tucked securely into a wrap and my carry-on over my shoulder, I was able to push my three-year-old daughter in the stroller from the ticket counter, through security and all the way to our gate with ease. Now you might think that any stroller would do in this situation, but here’s why the Yezz was my own personal hero.
Managing two active little ones is a workout any day of the week, but when you add in the stress of traveling and the extra weight of all your luggage, it turns into a triathlon. The last thing you need is to add more bulk to your load, and that’s why the Quinny Yezz is a super smart addition to your collection of baby gear. It’s made of plastic that’s just as strong as it is lightweight—it weighs in at less than 12 pounds, making it a breeze to push and to carry. Plus, it features a shoulder strap that allows you to carry it hands-free, and that made all the difference in the world for those times when we couldn’t push the stroller, like when we were going through security and boarding the plane.
Choosing a stroller that’s easy to fold and unfold is one of my must-haves, and this is one of my favorite features of the Yezz. Unfolding only requires one hand to push a button and one foot to snap the stroller into position, and when you’re ready to fold it back up, again it’s a one-handed maneuver. The number of times that you have to do this throughout the airport (or airports, in our case) is higher than I’d like to remember, and there are times when you have to do it quickly, like when there are other passengers waiting behind you in the security line or when you’re rushing to catch your connecting flight. I’m endlessly grateful that I never had to fight with the Yezz to get it into the position I needed quickly and easily.
And of course one of the most important aspects of a stroller is how content your child is when riding in it, and I’m happy to report that both of my kids were comfortable and secure. The hammock seat created a cozy little nook when they were sitting in the Yezz, and the five-point harness put my mind at ease, especially when my wiggly baby was the passenger. The skate wheels made it a smooth ride for my precious cargo, and it was actually fun to push—and if you have a three-year-old who loves to help take care of the baby like I do, she’ll fight you for a turn!
