hauck eagle looks like it would be great for a little one, but in my experence when they get bigger buggy types like these are heavy to get up kerbs, i had a mamas and papas switch and i had to put my foot on the step at the back to help get it up the kerbs, the same problem with a loola heavy to get up kerbs they are both like the eagle, i am thinking, i dont think you will get a smaller fold than a bugaboo bee. i can think of a few if you did not want parent facing. i will keep thinking i have had so many pushchairs i must be able to think of one with what you want

The handle of the Jane Solo Reverse goes up to 110cm (the Powertrack only goes to 107cm) and is from about £270. It's much smaller than the Powertrack when folded too.

The Bee is worth the money and will hold value, you will get at least half back on resale.

If you can cope with a backpack for your kit instead of basket for holidays have a look at a cheap Silvercross Halo cgi.ebay.co.uk/Silver-Cross-Halo-Dandelion-weight-9-8kg-Used-item-SALE-/370509823539?pt=UK_Baby_BabyTravel_Pushchairs_GL&hash=item56441b3e33#ht_718wt_689 I picked one up this week and it is excellent for travelling. RRP was £250.
