An ok stroller
October 16, 2018
This stroller is not very easy to maneuver with one hand. It is a little heavy and the material does not wash easy.

Love all the options
September 5, 2017
The first order I got of this stroller was damaged but after contacting customer service I was easily able to return it and get a new one. We have only used it once but so far has been a great stroller. My toddler loves it and I will be using it within our newborn when he arrives. The discounted price is good, I don't think it would be worth it if I had paid full price. This has all the features of the much more expensive strollers for half the price.
  • Reclines flat, can be used with newborn, HUGE basket, reversible seat, huge canopy, rain cover is included, can be used with Chicco carseat, easy to fold, stands when folded!
  • Hard to get to basket from the back

Super Picky and IN LOVE with this stroller
July 19, 2017
I am a super picky researcher...This is my third child and I knew what I wanted...light, easy to fold, but still luxurious with all the bells and whistles, i.e. rear facing, big basket, lie flat, bassinet. This stroller exceeded my expectations. My only complaint is that I wish the wheels were rubber and bigger, but it was something I was willing to give up, oh and there is no tray for the baby but really not necessary when I begun to think about my older kids- I gave them a snack cup and it sat in their lap. There is a belly bar attachment I believe you can buy and then get a universal tray to add to that? I also ordered the bassinet for this and it is a great attachment for the little one so they don't always have to be strapped in. On a sidenote: I had gotten the Sola2 but HATED the close system and it only fit the cybex or maxi cosi car seat- both seats were unappealing to me and I wanted to stick with the Chicco. This stroller has a chicco adapter and my car seat fits like a glove :)

Super modern and sleek
July 12, 2017
I ordered the Armadillo Flip stroller and I absolutely LOVE IT! It's super lightweight, sleek and modern looking which I LOVE LOVE LOVE! Not only did it arrive very quickly but the assembly was a piece of cake. I'm not too good with putting things together but this stroller was super easy, even for me. The canopy is extremely large to cover my 9 month old, fits like a caccoon when sitting upright. The ride is smoothe for baby and the handiling is excellent for mommy. I love the large flexible basket at the bottom. I can fit his large diaper bag, my purse and other items when strolling around the mall. If you are indecisive on purchasing this stroller, I say GRAB IT while you can! I'm glad I made this purchase!
  • Super lightweight and modern looking.
  • Great memory foam material covering entire seat.
  • Wheels are easy, never getting stuck. (Even in light terrain)
  • Super compact, fold up nicely with a stand!
  • Oversized canopy
  • Came with rain cover.
Best Uses
  • All around town! Works great for jog-walking too! It's sooo comfy with its memory foam material that my baby loves being in it!
  • Everything was perfect on this stroller I just wish that it came with a grab bar for the baby. Def not a deal breaker though.

by far the best invention yet with just a few kinks
September 3, 2015
I have 5 kids & I'm always on the go, so I went through strollers like crazy!! Single, double, name it. That being said....the armadillo flip gives you everything you need!! Flat recline, full coverage umbrella & best of all compact fold!! It's not on the lighter side like an umbrella but it's still not as heavy or bulky like the uppa or city. Only thing I wish was that then handles bend like on the Sola so that my drinks stay upright in the parent organizer instead of hitting the handle bar. The basket is big but it's not easy to get to. Fixed: don't buy skip hop buy a lower hanging one. I wish they made the stroller an once or 2 taller so it would be easy to get to. Unfortunately, this cannot be fixed - jusy practice. Also, when I fold my stroller the handle & canopy hits the ground, scuffing it up. I bought handle covers & tty to fold stroller at a slight angle. All these are very minor & easy to fix with practice. Btw if you have a newborn, you do not need additional accessories! Carseat friendly. Loving it!!
  • Full recline, huge basket, full size canopy, compact fold & carseat friendly
Best Uses
  • Everyone & everywhere!
  • Handlebars make it hard to access organizer, seat kind of low to access basket & if you fold stroller on concrete floors it'll scuff up handle & canopy.

Very compact Stroller
June 13, 2015
I absolutely love the way this stroller folds. It TRUELY a one hand fold. Very compact. Love the big basket and the roomy seat. Oh and the canopy is huge! I love the flat recline. Smooth ride and the seat has good cushion. I had a Sola with my first child which I loved as well but the canopy and the way the Armadillo folds cannot be beat. Wish it had a cup holder or at least one that I can attach and a bumper. When I showed my husband how to fold and unfold the stroller, after he was done he said " that's it?"he was very surprised how easy it was.
  • Extra large canopy, big basket, lay flat seat, truely one hand fold and very compact.
  • No cup holder or bumper.

not happy with this purchase
June 1, 2015
I bought this stroller for my 7 months old son because of the advertised reversible seat and ease of folding it quickly. It compacts very quick and easily fits into to our small car trunk. The problem is with maneuvering the stroller with the baby in it, I can barely control it with both hands and it is impossible to do with one hand. It is very hard to turn the stroller while walking because the swivel wheels get stuck for some reason when they bear the weight of the baby. The wheels now make noise after only two months of light street use. Another issue is have is with the fabric on the strollers canopy because it gets snagged and frayed on the handle bar every time you collapse the stroller. Overall, I am unhappy with this purchase and feel the stroller is overpriced due to lack of quality.

Beautiful and functional
May 4, 2015
I love this stroller. I also purchased the coordinating bassinet. It really can be opened / closed with one hand. It's simplicity was honestly confusing for me and my husband at first because we haven't encountered a single other product that is this easy to use. The padding is amazing and maneuverability is untouchable, it feels like it's gliding. The canopy has the most coverage I've ever seen on a stroller.

Looks amazing!!!
March 28, 2015
I bought this stroller a few days ago. Haven't used it yet, but it looks amazing. Really compact, lightweight, huuuuuuge canopy and basket. I can't find anything that I don't like (maybe a parents cup or a child's tray). I'm expecting baby no2 so I have some experience with strollers. I think I'm going to love it!!!Not forget to mention the super fast delivery from

The Armadillo Flip is Great!
March 6, 2015
Like most first time parents, we spent hours upon hours reviewing various strollers for the best value based on the features we want/need living in the suburbs. Things that were important to us included: parent facing option, easy fold, light weight, and infant seat compatibility. We test drove several options at local stores but none of them had everything we wanted within the budget we set. The closest option was the Armadillo Flip so we splurged a little and are very happy we did. No baby yet so this subjective review is solely based on features, looks, and hands-on testing without the kid. Nevertheless, I would easily recommend this stroller to anyone. Attaching pics with the Chicco car seat and adapter since other pics are readily available online.
Customer Images
  • EVERYTHING: Quality/design, flip, size/storage, style/color, huge canopy, infant seat compatible, one-handed 2-3 motion fold, lightweight.
  • - No bumper bar/food tray and no visible section for future add-on if it becomes available
  • - Can't fold with infant seat adapter attached (not a biggie)
  • - Price point is twice that of the Armadillo for slightly more features. $375-$400 would have been ideal
