Folding your egg stroller
Now you know everything there is to know about our egg strollers, including what you can get in an egg2 bundle, in this section, you’ll find out just how easy it is to collapse your egg pushchair.
Folding your egg2
To use the famous egg2 stroller from birth, you will need an egg2 carrycot so your precious newborn can be in a lie-flat position for the first 6 months. The egg2 carrycot has a spacious nest and features an ergonomic release lever positioned at the top. Just like the egg2 seat unit, the carrycot features a ventilation net and viewing window to keep your little cool and their eyes on the world around them. The beautiful soft-lined egg2 carrycot includes a plush mattress as standard, as well as a fully adjustable hood and rain cover to keep your baby protected from the weather.
So, if you’re using the stroller with the carrycot attached, you’ll need to remove this first.
- Lift the lever at the back of the carrycot and lift upwards using the handle at the top to release from the chassis
- Rotate the barrel on the handlebar away from you to drop your bar to the lowest position
- Then, using the same barrel, rotate it towards you and this will drop the handlebar to the floor where you can lock it in place
- In the middle of the undercarriage basket, you’ll see a bar. Lift this bar upwards to fold the rest of your chassis and when you hear the click, it means it is locked in place
- The egg2 is self standing so you can leave it upright or in a lie-flat position to fit into the boot or your car or for storing away.
If you’re using the egg2 buggy with the seat unit attached, it doesn’t matter whether it is forward facing or world facing, it needs to be removed before folding, but it’s super simple.
- Make sure the retractable canopy is pushed back for easier handling and storage
- Press the two white indicators either side of the seat unit and lift to release
- Follow the same instructions above to fold the chassis.
The egg2 stroller is quick and easy to fold and the pram frame can be collapsed using just one hand, once the carrycot, car seat or seat unit have been removed.
To convert your stroller from a single to a double, you’ll need tandem adapters that attach to your egg2 stroller and can be used to double up in 6 configurations. Along with the adapters, you will need an egg2 tandem seat which is available in a range of colours, including feather, jurassic grey, quartz and monument grey. If using in this mode, to fold the double stroller first you must remove the tandem adapters and both seat units or carrycots and fold using the same instructions above.
Folding your eggZ
The eggZ is the simple, no fuss, lightweight and compact stroller so it doesn’t come with a carrycot or have a compatible car seat unit, making it even simpler to collapse. The great thing about this stroller is that you don’t remove the seat unit to fold it and you can do it swiftly with one hand in one effortless motion in just 3 steps.
- Pull the extendable canopy all the way back so it is tucked away
- Press the button on the handlebar
- Push the handlebar forward to fold the top portion of the pushchair and feel the natural z-motion as the whole pram folds down into a tightly compact package.
And it’s as easy as that with the eggZ!
Egg Ride on Board
To get even more out of your egg, use an egg Ride on Board for your older child (suitable for use from 2 years old) to give those tired little legs a rest when your younger baby is in the stroller. A Ride on Board means your older munchkin can catch a ride on the back of any egg pushchair, without the need to create a tandem buggy. If you’re using an egg Ride on Board, you’ll need to remove it before folding.
That’s your complete guide to folding your egg stroller and now you can see how quick and simple it is. If you go for an egg2, you’re getting a versatile stroller with multiple elements including carrycot, seat unit and car seat if you purchase as a complete travel system and for the eggZ you’re getting a no-fuss, lightweight and compact pushchair that folds with one hand in just a couple of seconds. Either way, we know you’ll be happy with your egg stroller purchase.
