A stroller for the car – not expensive, one-hand-folding, large canopy, with suspension and a mosquito net

Emili • 13 Jan 2024

Hi,

I am looking for a stroller for my car. I don't want an expensive stroller, because it's only in the car just to go shopping or to the zoo etc. I'm not a big traveler with airplane, but it would be nice if it fits in the cabin, but not priority number one.

My baby boy is 9 months old right now and wants a stroller for long usage.
From a stroller, I would like to pack it with one hand, a long canopy, little shock absorbers would be nice, and a bug net. And i don't know what to ask for more about stroller.

Right now, I've been looking for Kinderkraft Askoy, and Lionelo Zoey. I am open to other strollers also.

Thank you very much for help! :)

Hey, Emili,

Firstly, it would be good to acknowledge that a cheaper stroller won't have all the luxury features - the more so if it will be a simpler one, compact and light. I think you picked reasonably well, given what you search for, still it's good to expect the canopies won't be large, and the suspension will be minimal with such strollers.

Personally, I would go for the Nubi2 from what you mentioned. It's the least bulky for sure, while the backrest and overall functionality is reasonable. The Askoy is very, very weak in terms of suspension (while much bulkier), and the Zoey looks nice but I see experiences of parents that the finishes and connections just aren't that solid.

I would also suggest the Cybex Eezy S+2 as a good option for what you've described, though I know the price may be higher, compared to the Kinderkraft models. Looking over classifieds to get a pre-owned one could be a solution there.

Your -very berry- Eli.

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