Recommendations for strollers needed!

I currently have the Bugaboo Donkey, and whilst I still love it, it tak up the whole of my boot space meaning I cant fit in any shopping etc. I also cant fit both seat units in my car so can only use it as a single anyway. I figured if I'm only using it as a single when I go out and about, I may as well get a light weight single stroller and have the Donkey in dh's car where it will fit all the time!

DD2 is 13 months and only just walking. I imagine she will be needing it for some time yet so am looking for something durable that will last a couple of years. I also have a 2 year old who likes to climb on and push the pushchair.

Anyone have any ideas? I've just been on the mothercare website and there are so many I just need some specific pointers as by the looks of it I can spend £30 or £300 on a stroller. I dont really have a £300 budget, but I dont want to buy something that is awful to push and breaks after the first use.

Maclaren quest and buggy board for 2 year old?

Do you want the seat to be parent facing?

Not particularly, we spend half the time parent facing and half the time watching the world atm and she much prefers looking out.

I'll have a look at the mclaren quest thanks

I dont think its particularly lightweight, but my favourite stroller is the Kiddy City 'N Move. Its really good quality, seems really sturdy, good quality fabrics etc. The downside is the fold is a curved shape, but its definitely worth a look. There are features like metal plates on the rear of the pushchair to give it strength.
Otherwise wait a bit longer for the Micralite Twofold..

We went to mothercare today and tried them all out, ended up with the mothercare vio. Folds small, lightweight, easy to push and not too expensive. Perfect really!
