A compact, ultra lightweight, cabin-friendly, and cheap stroller for a 14kg child

Pitu • 04 Sep 2023

Hi Eli,

Hope you find well. I´m going from Argentina to NY, and I want to buy a compact, ultra lightweight and cheap stroller. Preferably adapted for an airplane cabin. My daughter is 14 kg now. which stroller do you recommend?

Thank you very much!

Hey, Pitu,

I have to tell you that the really cheap strollers that are cabin-approved are actually really bad quality, rattly and getting loose. So my advice to keep it reasonably budget-friendly but not go crazy cheap, rather around average, especially if you really plan to use the stroller. Which is why I will suggest looking at Cybexes - their compact strollers are spacious enough so that your baby won't be craped or her head over the backrest already, and are rather small so very airplane friendly. From the Cybex Eezy2 to Cybex Beezy or even the simple Cybex Orfeo, I think you could be reasonably happy with the buy.

I don't know if you can get your hands on a Kinderkraft stroller but the Kinderkraft Indy (2) is also a rather ok choice.

The GB Pockit+ All-City or the GB Qbit, even if pre-owned, could also do you a nice service.

Your -very berry- Eli.

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