‘The buggy that can breathe, breeze and hug' is how Quinny markets its high-tech, ultra-comfortable, hammock-seat stroller with 3D elasticated knitting technology. The revolutionary design makes this an extremely light stroller at just 5kg and its unusual seat means your child will gently rock as you push. It benefits from air ventilation thanks to the structure of the fabric, and high-performance, strong material. Plus, it is available with a coral or lime hood, finishing off its stylish grey seat with an attractive pop of colour.
A firm favourite in the lightweight stroller category, the Oyster Lite is suitable from birth, making it the only pushchair you'll ever need. It offers an easy-fold system and a compact fold, making it easy to transport and store. It weighs just 6.9kg, has a fully reclining seat, an extendable hood, a large shopping basket and lockable front swivel wheels. There are eight affordable colour packs to choose from, so you can customise your stroller to your taste, and it is compatible with a range of car seats (with adaptors).
When it comes to lightweight strollers, anything with the word ‘nano' in the name sounds promising – and this one really delivers. In fact, it folds up so small (and so easily) that multiple airlines have accepted it as hand luggage – and it even has a shoulder strap for as you climb the steps to the plane. Weighing around 5.8kg and folding up to just 22 x 12.2 x 20", it makes travelling with a little one simple. In addition, it has built-in rear-wheel suspension, large wheels, a colour-defined brake, easy manoeuvring and is compatible with a range of car seats. It can be used from birth with a car seat or from six months using the stroller seat, and it comes in all black, black and red or black and blue. Check out our review here.
This innovative, everyday stroller weighs just 5.7kg and benefits from a freestanding fold, which is nice and small, so it fits into the smallest of spaces when in storage. The RECARO Easylife is an eight-wheel, full suspension stroller with an intuitive one-handed folding mechanism, a continuous handle and front-swivel, lockable wheels for easy manoeuvring. It would suit someone looking for a stroller for family life, whose baby is six months or older.
This clever little featherweight stroller weighs just 4.6kg and is the perfect companion for a day out sightseeing, for travelling with or for nipping around the city that you call home.

And with features such as the ShoeSaver brake, which means no more scuffed shoes, it's becoming a very popular little stroller.
