A compact stroller for the car or shops for a petite mum

Jo • 17 Jul 2022


Iā€™m petite (5ft) and need a stroller with an adjustable or low handlebar. We have the Bugaboo Cameleon 3, but I want a good quality, compact, easy-to-fold stroller for the car / shop visits, etc. can you recommend any?

HI, Jo,

The first that came to mind just so was the Mutsy Nexo, which is a pushchair very very nice for petite mums (and very comfy to push on normal surfaces). The Quinny Zapp Xpress, if available around you, is also rather nice and compact and really nice and nimble in malls (but it doesn't offer a lie-flat position, which is just FYI, for a 1 year+ toddler it is completely ok even for naps).

From the even smaller ones, I would definitely consider the Elodie Details Mondo which is large in the seat but small and compact overall, although the handlebar is rather average. The Ergobaby Metro+ has even an adjustable handle so that is another buggy to consider.

If I still did not get it right, please think about your budget, tell me your baby's age, and any other requirements you might have, and write again! ^_^

Your -very berry- Eli.

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