Armadillo Stroller Review (Mamas & Papas)

What It Is

The Armadillo from Mamas & Papas is a stroller that functions like an umbrella stroller but packs a punch like a buggy. The Armadillo has many features including swiveling, shock absorbent front wheels which make this an all-terrain stroller. The seat itself is large and roomy for extra wiggly kids that also allows for a more comfortable ride.

The leg rest can be raised or dropped to fit your growing child.

The seat itself has multiple features. Its back reclines all the way to a buggy position to make it suitable for infants. It's also a fully structured back, which means it will offer full support in any position.

The canopy is extra large to offer your child additional protection from the elements as well as to create a cocoon-like environment for a sleeping babe.

The foot brake is light to the touch and easy to use, although you will have to pop it up to unlock it, which can scuff your shoes and be difficult to do in sandles.

But, the shining feature of this stroller is the fold. It features an inward, no-fuss fold that allows parents to easily fold up their stroller for storage or travel with just one hand. An automatic lock is activated once the stroller is folded. Unfolding this stroller is equally simple. Simple unlatch and unfold.

Additional features include a peek-a-boo window with magnetic detail to check in on your child, an attached hand strap for added safety, and a large shopping basket.

Why Is It Useful?

While many strollers can be difficult to convert as well as fold up for storage and travel, this stroller takes the frustration out of this task for parents.
