Familidoo Air Stroller Review: the perfect compact travel stroller? 

If there is one place in the world where you need a compact travel stroller it is travelling around Japan. Everyone knows that space is at a premium when travelling around Japan and this is true for strollers. So when we were given the chance to test out the new to the UK market familidoo air stroller we jumped at the chance. We really put it through the test in Japan from fitting it in every right space imaginable to taking it off road and on some hard core terrain. Here’s our honest opinion in our Familidoo Air Stroller Review:

Familidoo Air Stroller Review

Familidoo air stroller as cabin bag carry on

One of the big selling points of the Familidoo Air Stroller as a travel stroller is that it can be taken as carry on. It comes with its own carry on bag and can be put up and down with one hand. Perfect for even solo travellers. The Familidoo Air Stroller weighing just over 5kgs means that it is light, making it very easy to put into the overhead lockers!

How does the familidoo air stroller take the pressure of travel?

One of the problems we have found with travel strollers in the past is that they rarely live up to the rigours of day to day life. We took the Familidoo Air Stroller on our almost month long trip to Japan which meant we had plenty of opportunities to put it to the test of daily life!

We put the stroller to the test over many different terrains – from gravel, to off road to city life, the Familidoo Air Stroller acted perfectly on all surfaces.

For me, one of the most important aspects of any stroller is how comfortable it is for baby at nap time. Our little one found the Familidoo Air Stroller very comfortable and managed to nap in it frequently.

The design of the familidoo air stroller

The Familidoo Air Stroller is perfectly designed and not only in its fold down qualities. The stroller itself has useful storage underneath the main section, which came in very useful on our days out. It has the best hood of any stroller I’ve ever had which came in handy on the very sunny days we experienced in Japan. But most of all, I love the fun patterns that the stroller comes in. Our version is called Black Panda and features a range of fun cartoon characters.

Overall verdict on the Familidoo Air stroller

I LOVED the Familidoo Air Stroller! Having gone through a couple of travel strollers already, I was so impressed with how this travel stroller coped with the rigours of our trip. From airplane and train travel to off roading at shrines and temples, the Familidoo Air Stroller took everything I, and my very demanding toddler threw at it. I would definitely recommend to any one looking for a new compact stroller!

    Familidoo air strollers sounds like a good one …. especially for the nap time and it’s easiness to carry around.

  2. October 5, 2017 / 1:16 pm

    I think if it survives being tested on all that different terrain, it’s definitely worth investigating! 🙂

  3. October 6, 2017 / 10:49 am

    this sounds like a great stroller. did it fully recline for sleep? if it can do that, it sounds just perfect, especially with that big storage space.

  4. October 6, 2017 / 12:27 pm

    I thought we were past the stroller stage now that I have an 8 and 6 year old BUT last month, we went to California – Disneyland and San Fran and I ran out and bought a little fold up for my 6 year old. Best $21 I spent! But with little ones you need something more durable and this looks like a good option. Great price point, I know some strollers are closer to $1000 USD.

    Love Japan too! I went solo, my kids are begging to go!

    That does look lightweight. It’s not just about getting it on the plane, but carrying it up and down steps on the tube/metro, over cobbled streets, everything a foreign trip may involve.

  6. October 6, 2017 / 8:14 pm

    I meant lightweight in a good way! I have to carry buggies all over the place!

  7. October 6, 2017 / 10:13 pm

    Things do come a long way in such a short time. My children are too old for strollers now but the choice was either light and flimsy (often with no bag or cover) or well built but heavy and difficult to transport. And the famildoo is such a reasonable price too!

  8. October 7, 2017 / 10:32 pm

    WOW! What perfect timing for this post – I’m really looking into strollers at the moment and this one looks fab. Sleek looking design, compact, light AND comfortable enough for naps? Ticks all the boxes in my book (and Japan looks amazing!).

  9. October 8, 2017 / 7:10 am

    That looks very compact -so important when travelling!

  10. October 8, 2017 / 8:53 am

    This looks fabulous. I got rid of our stroller earlier this year and regret it now. Might have to invest for those long days out

  11. October 8, 2017 / 6:16 pm

    I think if I was ever in the market for a stroller I would definitely consider this one since it can be stored as a carry on. With all my travels this would be so helpful

  12. October 8, 2017 / 6:35 pm

    But do the handles extend for us tall folk?

    • October 8, 2017 / 6:53 pm

      Handles don’t extend but my hubby is 6ft5 and found the height to be perfect for him

  13. October 9, 2017 / 4:37 am

    That sounds like an epic stroller for travelling. I hadn’t heard of it before so thanks for the tip 🙂

  14. October 9, 2017 / 6:37 am

    The design is lovely! Glad you’re chuffed with it 🙂

  15. October 9, 2017 / 9:27 pm

    This really does sound – and look – great. It’s fab that you can take it as hand luggage and it looks both sturdy and light, an excellent combination!

  16. October 9, 2017 / 10:41 pm

    This looks like such a great stroller – it would be fabulous in our campervan as it is often tight for space !

    Love that it’s travel-friendly! Soo important! Thanks for sharing.

    Having a compact stroller is a must, so much easier when doing a quick trip out places too

  19. October 11, 2017 / 2:41 am

    Looks perfect for Japan. We travelled through Tokyo with a toddler and there are lots of places we had to lift or fold up the pram (up and down the metro stairs etc). I get why they all have such lightweight prams there!

  20. October 12, 2017 / 2:25 pm

    I am loving all the features of this stroller. So good to here your little one was comfortable in it and I love how compact it sounds

  21. October 13, 2017 / 9:37 am

    Wow, this stroller is beautiful and has some great features!

    Would the stroller be ok for a heavyish 3 year old do you reckon? I love it and seems perfect for holidays.

    • June 9, 2018 / 2:13 pm

      Hello! I would imagine so! My two year old still uses it and loves it
