Is there such a thing? It need to fit in a space that my volo is to long for.

Mothercare Citilite and Graco Citisport (they are essentially the same pushchair) both fold squarish, so they are much shorter than a folded Volo but also wider. The seat is quite narrow though so if you have quite a big child I would recommend trying it out for size first.

silver cross compact.

I've the compact they do go small in length, think they were designed to fit the back of the mini or something but Silver Cross have replaced them with the 3D. They are pretty awkward to fold (once you get the hang of it it's not too bad just don't let anyone else do it without a half hour lesson in what to do) and it doesn't stay shut well if you have the hood attached. Otherwise it is pretty good as small travel system.

i am wracking my brains to remember the one that is like the citylite but folds smaller.

It was one that alledgedly could go in an overhead storage locker in a plane.

Surely Misdee would know???

you could import a mia-moda ceolos i think. its a suitcase fold one.

citilite, citisport

or a small one but not length fold is a combi dash(?)

zapp can fit in passenger footwell of a matiz.

combi dash that's it!

I knew you would know .

That is one weird but kinda wondeful stroller!!

how odd looking misdee, it looks really short? I think it would fit though. It was actually the combi dash I was thinking of but looking at it I don't think it will go.

Whats that revolting looking thing in mothercare? Only ever seen it in Mothercare World. Hang on, I'll try and find it...

mustrunmore Mon 26-Feb-07 19:57:51

I cant find it on the website. I think it was a hybrid back carrier that turned into a buggy, or some such. It was red, not that it helps. Misdee will def know!!

lol, that was MC 3wheel version of a zapp. very cheap and nasty, they stopped making it ages ago.

mustrunmore Mon 26-Feb-07 21:15:29

Was it? (didnt look like a zapp atall). Thiking back, I think I prob saw it when in there with my pg friend, whose baby is now 7 months I knew you'd know!! BTW, did I let you know the star light arrived safely? Sorry if I forgot to.

misdee Mon 26-Feb-07 22:23:14

oh good it arrived, was thinking about that earlier

yeah trhe mothercare version folded up small and into a bag as well.

Are you thinking of the Mothercare Impro?

Now discontinued and highly sought-after second-hand ...

God, I wouldnt hink it was highly sought after. looked very rickety to me!
