A compact, easy fold stroller for a big 18 month old boy for everyday use as well as traveling abroad (under 200)

Hi :)

I’m looking for a compact, easy fold stroller for a big 18 month old boy - within a budget of £200. Sturdy enough for every day use but convenient enough to take abroad. Thank you!

Hi, Rose,

If you mean a cabin-approved-sized stroller, then you will have to count on the everyday use to be very limited - not as comfortable. The smaller, more compact the stroller gets, the less it is suitable for everyday use - and you will feel that in the wheel area, in the seat space, and also the features or seat angle when upright. It is just the physics of things. For those small, actually occasional-use strollers, I would suggest a Joolz Aer, a Cybex Eezy S+2, or perhaps an Ergobaby Metro+ to look at, however I know these are usually more expensive than your budget is (try checking on used ones, perhaps). With cheaper ones, you will feel the discomfort VERY much, I'm afraid - but you can always try, maybe the Recaro Lexa if you find one around you.

You can then check larger, comfier models, and there, maybe the Joie Litetrax, the Oyster Zero (Gravity), or perhaps, fron the more budget ones, the Kinderkraft Grande LX could work for you.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
