4moms Origami Stroller


$849.99 Released January, 2012

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Easy one hand folding with the push of a button. Daytime running lights and pathway lights make it nice to use at night. LCD screen with lifetime and trip odometer and speedometer are cool features you don't normally have on strollers.

The Cons:Wheels are not air-filled. Pretty heavy compared to other strollers (29 lbs vs 20 lbs for the Bugaboo). Only has seat adapter for Graco car seats.

The 4moms Origami stroller is the first power-folding stroller. It folds into a compact and portable size by pushing a button. You can also power-unfold the stroller by pushing a button. The stroller has a built-in generator that recharges as you walk.

Product Shot 2 It needs a "short walk" to regenerate, although there is no mention of how short the walk needs to be or how long the charge lasts. It does have a manual override so you'll never be stuck with a folded (or unfolded) version of the stroller. Once the stroller is folded, it has hidden luggage-style wheels for easy transport.

This is definitely a stroller for the tech-minded parent. It comes with an LCD screen that gives you some stats about your walk. The most notable being whether or not there's a baby in there. It also shows you the temperature, battery life,  and your current walking speed and distance. The safety sensor ensures the stroller is never allowed to fold when there is a baby seated. It also has built-in daytime running lights and pathway lights.

Folding Demo

This is not just a tech-specific stroller, it was designed by moms, afterall, so it does have most standard high-end stroller features. It has 4(!) cup built-in cupholders and plenty of storage space. The seat does not recline completely flat (they have a separate bassinet for newborns) but does recline to respectable 40 degrees.

    The auto-folding is somewhat gimmicky and lacks robustness of a regular manual folding stroller

Erik: #4moms_origami_stroller Ok, that's kind of interesting to watch the video. I've never seen this in the wild, but I'd be worried that the parts would gunk up and it wouldn't fold that nicely after a little wear and tear. I really don't mind folding my Bugaboo, so this auto-feature doesn't appeal to me. Dec 21, 11
