This particular umbrella pram has many features that make it ideal for travel. The main one is that when folded up, it stands alone because it has a center stand that keeps it from falling over. On top of this, this is a very lightweight travel stroller, at just 11.2 lb, so there are no problems with carrying it around. The seat pad is removable and washable, and there are two recline positions to keep your little one comfortable while on the move.
Having to check in a stroller and deal with the stroller on top of ordinary luggage can be painful. We did not regret taking our stroller with us to Asia at all, but the extra piece of luggage made things more complicated and meant that we generally took taxis when we had to move around with all of our luggage. That extra piece of luggage did tip us over what we could comfortably manage.

The popular Babyzen Yoyo+ is 1 pound lighter and folds down smaller than the Minu. It’s the most effortless to push and the most agile of all of the strollers we tested but can get tripped up by rough terrain. The Yoyo+ is also less convenient to fold than either the Minu or our budget pick, the Mountain Buggy Nano, and its underseat basket is frustrating to use. It costs much more than the other strollers we tested, but many parents we spoke to say its looks are the most appealing.
This affordable option is Amazon’s choice, it has over 600 reviews and a 4.1-star rating. Its the perfect combination of safety and convenience in a travel stroller, as it features a compact standing one-hand fold, not to mention it’s just under 12 pounds. It proudly has all of the features of a full-size stroller in a smaller and “more nimble” design.
The Minu has a more convenient fold than most other travel strollers we considered, and is the best at handling challenging terrain, from cobblestones to curbs. It can hold nearly twice as much weight in its underseat basket as any of the other models we looked at, has one of the most generously sized canopies, and, like our other picks, it has a deep recline that’s good for napping. It can be used without additional pricey attachments with babies as young as 3 months, while our other picks start at 6 months, and its taller, wider seat and higher weight limit mean that you can use it with a single rider for much longer than most of the competition. Unlike our other picks, however, it cannot be converted for use with a second rider.
Is a good price for a quadruple stroller. I always thought they were so expensive and I avoided buying them until I saw this one. The price is great, is made with durable plastic, the seats are easy to clean with a wet wipe and it looks like it won't stain. It has 6 wheels and even thought they feel and look sturdy they don't hold the weight very well. I put 4 children that in total might weight close to 90lbs. This weight is greatly absorbed by the whole thing sinking down to the wheels which consequently makes the drive hard and heavy. Plus you have to constantly hold down the break bar that is next to the top handle. If your hands are tired this will make your drive difficult. I also put cups with snacks and water in the under netting and the weight went down to the back wheels dragging all the way to the playground, this sort of slows down the rotation of the wheels and if I keep putting things down bellow eventually the netting will wear down and break from all the friction. Also the canopy are too short, I can barely fit a 1 year old comfortably under the canopy because is too low, it should have a bar underneath to lift the middle like and arch this way it won't fall on the children's heads. You get what you pay for, with this said you need to see if these issues are worth all the money you save, I have cut my loses and I can live with the stroller, it just for a daily 5 minutes walk to the park, if I needed it for longer trips I would get something better made and easier to handle.

Several experts I spoke to said the “travel stroller” category is an industry marketing maneuver to persuade parents to purchase a second or third stroller for the sole purpose for traveling. The main selling point of a travel stroller that companies often trumpet is that it folds small enough to fit in the overhead compartment of an airplane. Realistically, being able to do so depends on a number of factors, because baggage allowances and storage bin sizes vary by airline, and flights are often full. Eli Gurock, CEO and owner of Magic Beans, dismissed this as an essential feature, saying that people “should be really thinking about how they can spend five hours entertaining their child on the flight,” and the performance of the stroller should be prioritized over the size of the fold.


This really depends on if you already have a stroller that is suitable to be used as a lightweight stroller for travel. If at home you generally use a full featured, big stroller then you may want to think about buying a smaller, lighter stroller. Will you be taking public transport? Flying? If you are driving your own car, will your stroller fit along with all your other luggage?
The Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) system is a method of installing car seats without using seat belts. The vast majority of Graco car seats feature LATCH straps, which attach to LATCH anchors in the seats of newer cars. All cars manufactured in the U.S. after September 1, 2002, feature LATCH anchors, though some older vehicles do, too. It's also possible to fit Graco car seats using your car's seat belt, if you prefer or if your car isn't LATCH compatible.
The best compact travel stroller doesn’t necessarily have to be super easy to fold, but it sure makes life more convenient. This is probably more of a consideration for people traveling alone with their child or with several children. Some of the best travel strollers can quickly and easily be folded up using just one hand, whereas others need a bit more effort.

Easy to push and maneuver: Many parents I spoke to said that their biggest mistake in purchasing a second, more lightweight stroller was not prioritizing maneuverability and ease of pushing, which made wheeling their kids around less pleasant for everyone involved. Research from our previous stroller guides showed that wheel size, wheelbase (the dimensions between the wheels), overall stroller dimensions, and handlebar height all contribute to how well a model performs. Travel strollers generally have smaller wheels than those of full-size strollers, making them more challenging to push over bumpy sidewalks and carpeted areas. The best-performing travel models have wheels of about 4½ to 7 inches in diameter. Our experts told us that suspension and quality ball bearings also help a stroller feel effortless to push and turn. Almost none of the travel strollers we found come with adjustable handlebars, which may make them uncomfortable and inconvenient for shorter or taller people to use. We also found that single handlebars are preferable to two separate handles (as many umbrella strollers have) because they make it easier to push one-handed.
I love how detailed your post! Every time I travel with my kids, I always make sure to bring a stroller with me! It’s really handy. I prefer to use these compared to using infant carriers or sling bags. I find them to be uncomfortable for me and to my baby. It brings me more back pain honestly. Before I used First Years Ignite, but now I’m using Maclaren’s.
There is a rear canopy panel, which gives extra safety to hide your child from wind and rain. This section zips off if it’s hot outside and you want to bring in extra air flow. There is a mesh storage basket underneath the stroller, while the five-point harness has adjustable and padded shoulder straps. The wheels are high quality as well, featuring suspension and a locking swivel mechanism.
The Yoyo+ has a compact and lightweight build that helps make it nimble, as does the all-wheel suspension, which it has in common with the Minu. In our maneuverability tests on turf, it had the most responsiveness and was the easiest to turn. It’s effortless to push one-handed because it requires minimal pressure. Some testers noted how easy it was to push on grass. While other strollers we tested, including the Minu, have more of a rolling feel when you push, the Yoyo+ glides, especially on smooth surfaces.

A great feature of the Vue is that the seat is also reversible meaning you can have your child facing you while you push them. It is great to maneuver and easy to fold. The front wheels can lock into place for long distance walking on your trip. The sun canopy is fantastic. This really is a stroller you could love both while travelling and at home. The only downside is that the storage basket is not easy to access.
