4Moms Origami Stroller Review: The Highest-Tech Stroller Ever


We took the stroller for a stroll. You can push it easily with two hands, but it isn't easily pushed with one hand. Though the wheels look a bit plasticky, the ride was very smooth. Additionally, the four-wheel suspension makes going over curbs and bumps quite easy, with little disruption to your child. It also seems to sway a bit from side to side, but the makers say this is part of the design.

A cellphone adapter is sold separately.
Now for storage, because, as we know, a stroller can quickly turn into your purse on wheels. There are great cup holders for grown-ups, as well as two smaller cup holders in the basket portion of the stroller for the child. Overall, though storage space left a bit to be desired. There is a medium-sized compartment underneath to put your belongings but it isn't big enough for a large purse or diaper bag, or any boxy-shaped toys. There are additional pockets behind the basket for smaller items, but it still doesn't provide a ton of space.

The Origami is designed for children ages six months to fours years and up to 40 pounds, and you can purchase a car seat adapter for $59.99 that is compatible with a variety of Graco SnugRide car seats. The seat covers are machine washable and come in a variety of bright colors.

It has all sounded perfect, but there is one major downside, and that is the weight. At 32 pounds, this stroller can give your arms a workout. It is a bit much to lug up and down a set of stairs and in and out of the car. Strollers like the City Mini only weigh 18 pounds.

But you may be willing to look the other way on the weight issue when you don't have to sweat to unfold the stroller, run home to charge your phone, and guess at how many miles you've walked. Plus, bragging about having the highest-tech car -- er, stroller -- on the road never gets old.
