Review Summary

Needing to get a stroller that was more travel friendly, we were looking for one that was easier on the wallet, having invested quite a bit in buying our Bugaboo Fox 2 stroller.

Enter the Edwards & Co Otto stroller. It wasn’t anything fancy, but it was well within our budget and fulfilled our needs for a travel stroller.

If you’re on a tight budget and need a stroller that is compact enough for flights, this is a great one to consider.

What I like about it

First off, a huge plus point for me and why I got the Edwards & Co Otto stroller was the ability to use it as is for newborns. When we needed to travel, our little one was only four months old and still wasn’t able to sit up unassisted yet.

The seat of the Edwards & Co Otto stroller can lie flat, so you don’t have to get any additional attachments or bassinet for your newborn. Not needing to get any additional parts also made it less of a hassle to have to attach and reattach parts while travelling.

 We considered getting the Babyzen YOYO² Stroller, but we would have to purchase the newborn pack which we couldn’t justify due to the high price point of both the stroller and newborn pack. There was also the hassle of having to attach and reattach the bassinet for a compact fold and in all likelihood, we’d probably only use the newborn pack for a short period of time.

The stroller is also exactly what it says on the tin - it’s a compact travel stroller. The main reason why we purchased the stroller was to be used as a secondary stroller for air travel.

When it’s folded it’s quite flat and compact and only weighs 7kg, making it really easy to load up in the overhead compartment on airplanes. While it might not fit every overhead compartment, depending on what airline you’re travelling with, it did just fine on the planes that we’ve been on. What’s great about that is that we could keep the stroller with us all the way up until we board the plane, which is really handy when you’ve got a sleeping baby or if your little one is feeling too tired to walk on their own.

Lastly, it’s really easy to fold the stroller down. It does take a bit of time to get used to the mechanism, but once you’ve got the hang of it, it’s straightforward enough to do it one-handed.

What I’m not a fan of

The Edwards & Co Otto stroller has a really small storage basket. However, this one is more of an inevitable trade off rather than a downside in my opinion. Given that the stroller is designed for travel and has the ability to fit into overhead compartments, it would naturally have a small storage basket. So while it was a little annoying at times not being able to fit all our stuff in the basket, it wasn’t a massive issue for us.

The sun canopy of the stroller is also quite short and doesn’t really provide much shade from the sun for my little one. Sometimes we resort to walking backwards with the stroller so that we can keep the sun off of him. There is an option to purchase a dedicated sun cover for the stroller, so I don’t think this is a massive dealbreaker. Unfortunately we couldn’t find one at the time and don’t use the stroller that often, so we ended up not getting one. However, I’m sure you could easily use a universal sun canopy with the stroller as well.


Overall, the Edwards & Co Otto stroller does exactly what we need it to and is at a very reasonable price point compared to some other strollers on the market such as the popular Babyzen YOYO² Stroller and Mountain Buggy Nano Travel Stroller V3.

I would definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a secondary stroller and are not wanting to spend too much on it. It’s of decent quality as well and our little one seems to enjoy it enough for us to assume that it’s a comfortable ride, so we’re fans!
