Cybex Mios Birds of Paradise – The modern must have city stroller

July 6, 2017

Whenever I am talking with my mom friends, or just about any mom at toddler groups, I get asked the same question: what stroller would you recommend? It might be that I’ve been testing quite a few in 10 months, and I’ve been blessed with only the best so far, but there has always been something missing. Yes, some of them are sturdy and all terrain, some others are really small and light, depending on your needs, but they lacked sparkle and that je-ne-sais-quoi. For a fashion blogger, it is quite a deal breaker, to be honest. Being your baby ride it is important to be comfortable, but also choosing a stroller says a lot about yourself too. And when turning heads is something you really wish for deep down, you’re in for a treat. 

Cybex has just launched the fashion collection, and Mios Birds of Paradise is the cherry on the top. Inspired by the exotic wildlife and nature’s vibe, the stroller features colorful parrots and plants as elaborate embroidery. This collection is definitely the ultimate fashion statement, transported vividly into the big city. The best way to catch the eye of the metropolis, don’t you think?

A new tribute to the innovative life’s work of Charles and Ray Eames, MIOS supports their motto: Design should not only have functionality, it must also be fun! This little brother of the PRIAM provides maximum stability in a lightweight frame, offering an airy, floating appearance. The stroller weighs 8.7 kg and measures a mere 50 cm in width, a must in the city, navigating the busy streets. The design is so compact, offering maximum comfort and smart functionality. The front swivel wheels handle even the narrowest of paths with ease. 

I absolutely love the modern seat design featuring a breathable mesh and footrest to help regulate your baby’s body temperature. It creates the perfect climate even on the hottest day, and you can still add a comfortably padded inlay for cooler days. The perfect choice for the urban bustle, Cybex Mios is flexible, functional and stylish – the perfect combination for busy parents that still want to look best.

The stroller is complete with aluminum frame, it folds through an innovative one-hand mechanism, which I still need to tackle, and it is durable yet light enough to fit an urban lifestyle. The stroller is perfect from birth to 17kg, which is about 4 years. The lux seat unit has a UPF50+ and viewing window, and a memory foam mattress. Whether forward or parent-facing, the seat unit can be turned in the desired direction in an instant. The backrest can be reclined to four different comfortable positions using one hand as well as the legrest to three different positions. The basket is small but it takes up to 5 kg. 

Needless to say, the new Birds of Paradise fashion collection is one of the best-looking strollers out there, guaranteed to turn heads everywhere you go, and start conversations. Mios is such an avant-garde harmony of style and timelessness, it is elegant, bohemian and it adapts perfectly to its surroundings.

You can still get the stroller in plain colours if print fabric is not your thing since Cybex Mios comes in various options. This stroller has been on my wish list ever since it was launched, and now I do prefer to take it out in London on a busy day, or even when strolling at the seaside. Being lightweight, easy to maneuver, and absolutely gorgeous, now you get why this is my favourite city stroller!
