Best Lightweight Stroller UK

One of the best inventions in the parenting world is strollers. They allow us to go on with our usual routines, with our babies (or toddlers). Imagine having to go on a day out with your baby but without a stroller. If you think about it, these are all doable without a stroller. But would you do them more often? We didn’t think so.

Strollers are heaven-sent, especially when they’re lightweight. The lighter a stroller is, the easier it is to bring along with you when you’re on the go. 

We’ve rounded our list of the ten best lightweight strollers in the UK for 2020 below.

Things to Consider When Buying a Stroller

Above anything, the safety features of your stroller should be your utmost priority. Here are the most important things you should look out for when buying a stroller:

  • Compliance with British Standards. All strollers, pushchairs, or buggies must comply with the BS EN 1888:2003 or the British Standard 7409:1996. This entails that the stroller has met the requirements of a safe vehicle for carrying babies or children.
  • Parking brakes. Check that there is at least one brake on the stroller and that this is visible and easy to apply.
  • Wheels. Ensure robust and durable wheels.
  • Harness. Ensure a functional harness. It is what prevents your child from falling off the stroller when you in awkward directions, such as downwards or steep kerbs.
  • Footrest and Steering. Check that the stroller is easy to steer and that there is a secure footrest for your child.
  • Strong frame. Check for a sturdy enough structure to carry your child’s weight.
  • No loose or sharp ends. Ensure all detachable pieces attach securely. You also want to make sure there are no gaps, hidden pockets, or loose fabric or lining that can trap your little one.
Key features:
  • 5-point harness.
  • 3-wheeler.
  • Extra-large shopping basket.
  • One-handed fold.
Specifications:
Weight: 7.7 kg.
