Lightweight stroller recommendations? (repost) Jennybananna 2 kids; Gilbert, AZ, United States 25079 posts

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.

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

It's actually small compared to my Eddie Bauer. It fits in my best friends beetle and that thing is tiny.

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
