Top 10 compact strollers

When it’s time to go out and about with your little one, there’s usually no such thing as travelling light. Babies need plenty of gear for an average trip out, and one of your many jobs as their parent (or packhorse!) to carry it all.

So as well as nappies-wipes-cream-snacks-drinks-outfits-hat-blankets-dummies-toy and all of your own stuff, you really don’t want your stroller to add to the load. A lightweight buggy that’s compact and easy to navigate can help make days out and trips away with your little one much easier to manage.
Lightweight strollers...

  • Fit easily in your car boot or on public transport
  • Have everything integrated, so you don’t need to carry extra parts or adaptors, unless using as part of a travel system
  • Are slimmer than many pushchairs, making them easy to use in narrow shop aisles and restaurants
  • Are often lower in price and great value for money
  • Don’t take up a lot of space when storing at home

There’s plenty of choice when it comes to purchasing a lightweight compact stroller. So where do you begin? We give the lowdown on the best in lightweight strollers that are both compact and comfortable. Below, you can easily compare features and decide what’s right for you.
