Babyzen Yo Yo worth the cost?

Looking for advice from anyone who has used the Babyzen Yo Yo. Is the cost worth it? I've only read great reviews about them and wanted to know if people do use them from birth to 4ish?

We were initially looking at travel systems but don't have a lot of boot space and would like something compact for in the house too. I've also read that people only use the pushchairs until they can get away with something lighter so would see it as an investment.

Or how about similar ones to the Yo Yo?

I'm a bit overwhelmed by all the options available!!!

Observations only - I don't have one (but did look into them a while ago)

They look too small to me to last until 4 and I think the weight limit is 15kg which is about 3yo.

If you're only using it around town they seem easy to use and certainly fold up small but the wheels look like they'd be no good on uneven or soggy ground if you'll ever be going off a path.

The seat also looks small but that's because it's more like a stroller rather than a push chair/travel system.

We just got one and although baby isn't here yet, we are delighted with how small it folds up and how easy it is to set up/fold down. We're in a 1 bed flat so space is premium!

If you don't need the super small fold for travelling then a Bugaboo Bee is more versatile.
If you need the super small fold for occasional travel an Ickle Bubba Aurora is a decent and much cheaper alternative.

I’ve just sold mine. I didn’t use it from birth so haven’t tried the newborn part. But did use it for a 6month old to about a year and a tall 3-4 year old.
It’s great, light, easy to manoeuvre. Downsides is that the fold is a bit vicious and it’s easily tipped if you put pressure/weight on the handle. Would I choose it for a newborn, no. Would I choose it as a second pushchair or for holidays, yes.
I’d look at the icandy raspberry if I were you. Having had both (and multiple other pushchairs) the icandy is still with me and the yoyo has been sold. It’s more robust and better suited to all ages I think

I loved ours. DS is a very tall 3 and he still piles into it occasionally. By the time they are too tall they are usually reliably walking anyway.
Great city pram for getting onto buses, lifts etc and not taking up lots of space.
