Looking for a reversible, compact folding pushchair

Ds is 8 months old. I've been using a Baby Jogger City Mini when shopping and going out but he hates facing forward and we have tears when he can't see me.

I need to find a reversible pushchair, that folds very small (tiny car!) and won't cost a fortune. This will be my fourth pram/pushchair for ds so dh has asked me to keep it below £250, including accessories, if possible. Does such a pushchair exist?

Any help gratefully received. Thanks.

I have an njoy bubble which is great.

Why don't you swap your City Mini for a Versa. The Versa actually comes in a box which is smaller than a City Mini, and as with the City Mini, the wheels are easy to pop off for a more compact fold.
I am sure I have seen Versa's on offer at present for similar to your budget.

I have a teeny boot, I think a versa would fit minus back wheels but it would drive me demented putting it in and out. I would get a babystyle oyster gem if I was buying a pushchair for this shape of boot. It depends on your definition of small boot though, i now view a corsa/Ibiza/fiesta size boot as luxuriously roomy.

How about a combi?

Thank you for all the replies. I like the look of the Babystyle Oyster Gem. I've also just found the Mamas & Papas Sola, it looks interesting. I like the Njoy Bubble (read the Which review) but it's too big - ideally need no bigger than 85cm at its longest point. Thanks again for all the suggestions.

The. Njoy bubble is smaller than the sola I think.

The urbo fitted nicely in the boot of my polo. Actually I can get a bugaboo donkey in there but is a hassle removing seat and wheels. No need with the urbo, got it second hand for 80 including footmuff and rain cover.
