I need a parent facing push chair for 2 year old but not too bulky r heavy as in and of car. Also need to foldable in one piece for holidays.

Was looked at njoy bubble but came across jane solo reverse and seems good. Hard to tell as few videos around.

Any good? Does it fold parent facing easily?

Should add that looked at jane mum but just too big and heavy. Can't tell if this is a similar size.

I had a Carrera anniversaries, which is the same frame as the solo reverse. It's a good shape for small cars but not light or particularly small. The parent facing fold is long. The muum is pretty light IMO and the parent facing fold is great although obviously a boxier shape which may work less well with small car boot. I'm not sure how a 2 yo would look in the jane seats, possibly quite large. Does it have to fold pf or would ff do?

I suppose I am comparing the weight o a mclaren . I don't want anything that is too heavy and I found the muum too bulky and big, so of the solo is that size then I guess that's too big for me. He fitted great in it though.

Our boot isn't too small but just don't want to lift weight in and out of car a lot. A mclaren is so light and easy for my dodgy back but something like a muum is just too heavy.

Kiddicare claim the muum is 6.6 kg.. I guess that's not completely accurate. I weighed the twone I had, it was 11.something with the second seat on.

Anyways, the solo, assuming it's v similar to the anniversario isn't comparable to a Maclaren. Have you looked at stuff like the my child floe or ladybird Reba? I'm not sure on seat sizes and you'd need to fold ff but they appear to be less bulky options.
