A medium-sizer reversible stroller for a 7.5mo

Miki • 07 Aug 2022

Hi Eli,

I’m from Perth. I’m looking for a medium-sized reversible stroller for my 7.5 months old son. My main purpose is for shopping and some walking. I would prefer the one that I can fold easily and fit into my car boot (Mazda CX3). I couldn’t decide between the Joie Versatrax, Redsbaby Metro 3 Lite and Valco Snap Ultra/tailor made. How would you recommend these (or) are there any other options for me please? My budget is around 700 AUD. Thank you.

Hiya, Miki,

The Versatrax is nice in terms of a foldable seat, but it is a wider stroller so you need to count on that. For the features it offers, it is actually a nice choice, and I could recommend it for shopping because of that large basket space as well.

The Valco is great in terms of the low weight, so if you don't mind a slightly bulkier fold it will be nimble and with superb coverage of the hood. I would most probably go for this one if I had the weight as the main criteria.

I would also think about the Cybex Mios, even if a second-hand one, s it is really really small while spacious enough and super comfy to push even on bumpy-ish roads, yes, even with those small-ish wheels. For normal walks and shopping, you'd appreciate the folded size and easy fold a LOT. Also, the Hoolz Hub is a similar nice-to-push, comfort,able and compact option, even pre-loved.

Your -very berry- Eli.

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