A compact stroller with locking front wheels and a tall or adjustable handle

Lizzie • 22 Aug 2023

Hello Eli!

We are desperado to buy something lighter for travel and day to day use but we have two quite specific requests that not many buggies seem to offer, and its really hard to search by feature on a lot of UK sites.

So we're looking for a compact stroller with both locking front wheels (our baby sleeps really well when rocked straight back and forth) and either a tall, or better still adjustable, handle bar. My husband is over 6ft and claims he just kicks the basket on most strollers he tries out.

Is there a way to search all the strollers on your site by the information you collect?

I'm going a bit nuts.

Yours truly in need,

Hey, Lizzie,

Unfortunately no, there is no search, it roved to be very hard to program ad we do all just the two of us, by ourselves, in our free time, so we did not manage a search.

About your question, the thing about compact strollers is that they are so compact because they are so small. I will give you my suggestions but I have to say your husband may be kicking the stroller even so, especially if he's really tall = that's the price to pay fo the compactness.

I think I would suggest the Cybex Eezy S+² which has a taller handle and lockable wheels. Then, an even better option would be the Joolz Aer+ a quality, roomy little stroller with a swivel lock and a tall backrest (+ handle at about 105.5 cm).

And I am going to suggest checking this accessory - "stroller handlebar extender" (just check on Amazon, e.g. like this one) - ot could be a solution for your hubby.

Your -very berry- Eli.

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