If you stroll the city streets on a regular basis or use your stroller for travelling, then the chances are you'll be on the hunt for a small folding stroller. Pushchair engineering has come along way since the umbrella fold was first invented in 1965.
Now, strollers are so clever in the way they fold, it can be rather like watching a piece of paper being folded by an origami master!
A compact travel companion that we love here at Pushchair Expert HQ is the BabyZen YOYO+. You can This nifty little number folds small enough to be stored in the overhead lockers on an aeroplane meaning you can stroll right onto a flight with it.
The Mountain Buggy Nano is also a firm favourite in the compact stroller market. It folds down into the smallest of packages and can be stored or travelled with ease thanks to its travel bag. Even though the Nano folds small, it doesn't compromise on size or quality as our expert Kelly explains in our up close review.
The GB Pockit and Mothercare XSS strollers are also super clever folding strollers which fold small enough to go in a large handbag if needs be. They don't recline, but are perfect for older babies and toddlers on day trips and holidays. Watch out for the GB Pockit+ which is on our way to us very soon!
It's not just a tiny fold that compact strollers are boasting. Recently we've seen an influx of strollers that can cleverly be carried around for convenience when they are not in use.

When you aren't using the Omnio stroller, you will hardly notice you have it with you!
