No tricks over here just big TREATS… in the form of a surprise 4moms Origami GIVEAWAY! You all know we love everything from 4moms and there are good reasons and the Origami, the awesome 4moms stroller is no different. But really you have TWO chances to win an Origami… First, before you read our review and enter our giveaway – be sure to head over to 4moms and enter their Halloween costume contest. The winner of the contest wins an Origami! But hurry because the contest closes tonight.
In conjuction with our review we are also giving away another Origami. The Origami is the worlds first power fold stroller. Yep, you read that right, it folds and unfolds itself. Don’t worry though, the Origami is equipped with a sensor that knows when a child is in the seat so it is not possible for the stroller to fold with a child in the seat, even accidentally. The Origami has an LCD screen or dashboard which turns red when it senses a child in the seat and a fold has been initiated. Also displayed on the LCD dashboard is the temperature, a speedometer and a trip and lifetime odometer. In addition to the technical information there is a cute little picture showing there is a child in the seat. You can even customize with the picture with a bow for a girl or no bow for a boy – so cool, right?
The LCD screen and fold are powered by a battery which is automatically charged as you stroll. With the purchase of an additional accessory, you can even charge your cell phone as you stroll! In addition to the LCD screen the battery powers daytime running lights that much easier to spot. Further, there are also pathway lights for those times when you need extra lighting as you walk. What a great feature for anyone (but especially us city dwellers) that may be out and about past dark or are constantly crossing busy streets. Don’t worry the lights aren’t bright enough to wake a sleeping child or keep a child awake!
Other notable features and specs:
- The canopy is beyond ample. 4moms actually calls it a sunroof. Not only does it have the canopy you see above but a sun shield that pops out further. And the canopy can be unzipped to create a mesh “sunroof” to circulate air and to allow you to peek in on your little one.
- There are two adult cupholders on the handlebar as well as two child cupholders in the seat cushion that can easily fit bottles or sippy cups.
- The Origami can be used starting at 6 months. While the seat easily reclines it does not recline far enough to be safe for young infants. There are carseat adapters for the Graco line as well as a bassinet that can be purchased separately.
- The five point harness is adjustable and easy to use.

Obviously, the Origami is packed with features and we simply love it. The fold and unfold are an easy trade off for the slightly heavier weight of the stroller (29 pounds). We still think it is easy to get in and out of cars and the compact fold make it fit easily in most car types. With all the extra bells and whistles we think the Origami is a wise investment and built on the outstanding quality of 4moms you know it will last you through the years!
