Stroller Review: Mamas & Papas Armadillo

We recently took a trip to Turks & Caicos and brought along the Mamas & Papas Armadillo Stroller. The Mamas & Papas Armadillo is the big little stroller that incorporates all the features I love in a surprisingly compact size. I wanted something that was light enough to tote around amongst our insane amount of luggage, can fold easily, and was adjustable enough for Gemma to get in her naps daily. I find sometimes when I take along a lightweight-type stroller on vacation, she doesn’t nap as well and usually leads into crankiness the entire time.



The Mamas & Papas Armadillo is a no-nonsense stroller that is light and practical but with a large, lie-flat seat designed to give baby extra wiggle room, perfect for traveling. Armadillo adds simplicity to everyday strolling with an inward, no-fuss fold that allows parents to fold the stroller in just seconds with one hand making it easy for on and off the plane. An adjustable leg rest makes for optimal comfort during nap time, while the large removable hood canopy provides maximum protection in any type of weather.




You will also appreciate the stroller’s five point safety harness, all round suspension and swivel wheels, and a flip-flop friendly brake for easy stop and go. This multi-functional stroller has many additional features that benefit parents and baby, including a large shopping basket, easy carry handle, peek-a-boo window, puncture resistant tires, rear brake, and an automatic lock for when the stroller is folded.


Mamas & Papas was started 30 years ago in the UK and has made their way into the US market. Founders David and Luisa decided that the best out there wasn’t good enough for their babies and an idea was born – Mamas & Papas. They know how important it is to give children the best start in life and they have held onto that thought throughout everything they do. As Mamas & Papas has grown, so has their family. Their daughters, Amanda & Olivia, have gone on to have families of their own and they are now shaping the future of the business based on their own experiences as parents. Their products are designed by parents for parents. The family continues to expand with new stores in new markets across the world, reflecting the core values of the brand that makes Mamas & Papas so special.



The Armadillo truly made our vacation a breeze. Gemma was able to nap as she pleased, was properly covered by the sun and comfy at the same time. The Armadillo Stroller is car seat compatible with the Aton, Maxi Cosi Cabrio Fix, Maxi Cosi Pebble, and Chicco Key Fit 30 and available in Lemon Drop, Black Licorice, Blue Indigo, Coral Pop, and Stripe.
