Hi there,
I'm looking for a lightweight stroller to buy for holidays but one with low handles, which rules out most Maclarens! Any suggestions?

Quinny Zapp, Petit Star Zia, Bruin (from Babys R Us but like a Petit Zia)?

Petite Star Zia is pretty short but a good pushchair.

I find the handles on the maclaren volo far too low and I'm 5'7" so would suit someone less tall IMO

I have the maclaren quest and an old volo which are both fine for me and I'm less than 5ft tall. The technos are too tall.

Graco Citisport though generally only second hand these days...The handle on the lowest setting is fine for my 4'6" mum.

It sounds like a Phil&Teds Smart would suit from the other thread!

Yes, I have a Phil and Teds Smart for sale. Handles are too low for me (I am about 5'6"), but otherwise a good buggy. Not the lightest thing ever, but light enough, and I love the seat and the style. Let me know if you're interested! The buggy is in very good condition with a raincover, car seat adapters and a neat red seat liner. Can send photos if you want.

Thanks everyone - will have a look at handle heights for the Volo and Quest.

Hi ToysRLuv - I am interested but fear it could be over my price range, as this would be a buggy for holidays so a second buggy really. Can you message me the price?
