Last week, we brought you the news that Mothercare had released their new XSS Pockit Stroller, the world's most compact folding stroller, weighing just 3.9kg. But what is the competition? We take a look at 5 of the other featherweights on the pushchair market right now.
1 - Joie aire lite - £100
The aire is Joie's lightest stroller at just 4.6kg. Suitable from birth, this lightweight stroller is heavy on features. With a large, easy access shopping basket, all round suspension for a comfortable ride, one handed fold and a large hood with an eyeshade visor. Whilst not being the most compact fold, the aire is easily light enough to use on your travels. It is also light on your wallet too, costing just £100!
2 - Quinny Yezz Air - £199
Weighing in at just 5kg, the Quinny Yezz Air is a cool looking and very clever little stroller. It features a breathable mesh hammock style seat which encourages air flow and prevents your little one from getting too hot and an elasticised seat, so your child is able to sink in and feel cosy. The ergonomic handle bar can be pushed with just one finger, so using the super compact Yezz Air is a total breeze. The 3D folding system sees the stroller shrink super small and has a carry strap which is perfect for parents on the go! The Quinny Yezz Air will be back in stock in January 2016.
3 - Oyster Lite - £169
With a lightweight aluminium chassis and weighing just 7kg, the Oyster Lite is just that. While it may not be the lightest on the list, it's easy fold mechanism makes it convenient to use, store and transport.
The versatile Oyster Lite can also be transformed into a travel system, which is compatible with the Oyster, Maxi Cosi Pebble and Cabriofix car seats. It also features a full reclining seat, making it suitable from birth up until baby no longer needs a pushchair.
4 - Mountain Buggy nano - £199
It may not be the Guinness World Record holder, but measuring just 56 x 31 x 51cm, the Mountain Buggy nano is certainly a close contender. With a 2-step fold, the nano drops with the press of 2 buttons into travel satchel size and with it weighing under 6kg, it is certainly easy to carry around. Parents can swiftly unfold the nano again with just one hand, making it perfect for those on the go. It is not clichéd to say nano by name, nano by nature.
5 - Recaro Easylife - £189
The first stroller to be produced by Recaro, the Easylife is the perfect example of getting it right first time. It's lightweight, weighing just 5.9kg, has an amazing fold, which leaves you with a nice neat self standing package that would fit in the smallest of boots and stand neatly in a hallway. Top it off with stylish looks, what is not to love about the Recaro Easylife?
