Lightweight stroller recommendations? (repost) Jennybananna 2 kids; Gilbert, AZ, United States 25079 posts
Feb 6th '13

I posted this a few days ago without much help. Im looking for a lightweight stroller. I would like it to be able to recline and have a storage basket on the bottom. I only want a single but something that would be comfortable for both my 1 year old and my 3 year old. No budget I just need something smaller than our full size one for quick trips and for our vacation to the UK in august. TIA

Is the basket a decent size? Does it have cup holders? (or an option to add them)

The basket is pretty big, I can fit my jacket, and the kids (2) and my purse under it. And it comes with a cup holder and a zip compartment. BUT the cup holder is made from fabric so not as sturdy as a plastic one. But for the price I think its worth it.

Quoting Glo♥:" I have a baby trend jogger stroller it has 4 cup holders and it weighs nothing love it. Here it's the link and I got it at target. http://m.target.com/p/baby-trend-range-jogger-liberty/-/A-14263642"

A bit bigger than I want. I need to travel with it and cars in the UK are small.

I was going to get that one. Is the tray not coming off a huge inconvenience? It's the only thing holding me back.

It doesnt have like a latch, you have to pull up on a little tab and it comes off. I'll take apic of mine with it off, but forgive me if its super dirty! IT needs cleaned lol

We have a Bugaboo Bee+ with wheeled board for our 18mo and 5yo. It's awesome for errands, but is great for all day too...like zoo's, amusement parks, etc. other than that our 5yo rarely uses the board [she's in school all day] and never sits in the seat, but could definitely fit if needed...the seatback is height adjustable, as well as the leg rest. It's also very compact and light weight, fits nicely behind the 3rd row in my Honda Pilot & previous Volvo xc90! It may have more features than you want/need...not sure you want to spend $650+ on a travel stroller, I would be hesitant to gate check it.



A Baby Jogger City Mini would also suit your needs! I wouldn't feel bad checking it either, they're only about $200-$250. It's wheeled board compatible too...



Oh, we used our Peg Perego Pliko P3 the last time we flew...it's compact but long, so it's not always a great trunk fit. But it's so roomy, ginormous canopy, plush seats and a step on back for an older sibling to hitch a ride.
