Pushchair for 3.5yr old

DD is fairly tall and weighs 15.5kg. I don't want to spend too much (am quite happy to buy second hand tbh) and preferably it would need to fit in the back of a zafira with all the seats up.

Someone has said a P+T would be ok?

Does anyone have any recommendations?

My 3 year old is in a Phil and Ted sport and it's fine for her- she is average size for her age. I bought it recently for £60 second hand as I wanted something easy to push as she is getting bigger and she will need to be in it for another year or so as I walk long distances that she can't do. I find it big in the car boot but then I am used to an umbrella stroller- wheels are easy to click off which would make it smaller. I would recommend!

I would say a Phil and Teds as well. They're pretty good!

I feel like a stuck record on here sometimes but baby jogger city mini. My 6yo has been known to cadge a lift in mine and she's pretty comfy. My 2yo has tons of room.

I didn't realise the baby jogger city mini was roomy - does it fold smaller than the P&T does anyone know? We're really limited for space if we use the car
Thanks again

My city mini folds smaller than the P&T. Its also much lighter.

City Mini pushes like a tank with a heavy child IME, you need tyres! I always recommend a Micralite for big kids, the seat looks tiny but gets pushed out the way IYSWIM?

Thanks everyone, I managed to get a phil&teds. Perfect for what we need and it DOES fit in the boot of a Zafira with all the seats up - although the wheels have to come off! smile x
