Hi everyone!

We're just about to start researching, testing and reviewing the best lightweight buggies for 2020 and we'd love to hear which products you'd recommend.

If you've used (and loved!) a particular buggy, then please do tell us about it on this thread. This will help us to create a shortlist of products to put to the test over the next few months.

Thank you!

It would probably help you if this thread had a title so it shows up properly in Active Convos!

At the moment all that's showing is 'sponsored thread'

Actually it's really weird - now this thread has appeared in Active Convos, under the correct topic, but it's still also at the top of the list of threads just as 'content'

I have the cossato whoosh for trips where the big buggy would be prohibitive.

I love it, it's super light, easy to fold and has a proper handlebar so you can push one handed which I find impossible with two handles you get on an umbrella stroller.

Out n about nipper is amazingly manoueverable, and great off road. British made too 👍

We love our Joie nitro! A friend lent us a silver cross buggy and I can't stand it, so difficult to manoeuvre in comparison to the Joie. X

I like the Armadillo City, really easy to use on public transport with an XXL hood.

Love the babyzen yoyo!

I second the Joie Nitro. I was using the mothercare travel system and needed something more lightweight and compact and its brilliant. Very reasonably priced and easy to manoeuvre

Babyzen yoyo - a lifesaver living in a second floor flat without a lift.

The Easywalker Buggy XS.. hands down my no1 baby purchase. Ours has gone with us on over 10 flights to 4 different countries and handled everything like a dream. It's lie flat so suitable from birth and folds down one-handed in literally 2 seconds. It's only 6kgs and fits neatly in the overhead luggage compartment

Also it's compact enough to fit down the aisle of an Emirates plane. But somehow still roomy enough for babyl mi

Love my Maclaren Classic. It is 16yrs old though so l doubt is made anymore! grin

Really sturdy. Been used for two children from birth and then used to cart stuff around on days out - so was piled up.

Currently using it when l look after my friends son.

Babyzen you. Brilliant

Or even yoyo !!

It's not a lightweight buggy, but after not finding any of those I could tolerate pushing, I opted for a City Mini GT instead, because its amazing ability to one hand fold even faster than an umbrella buggy (pull a strap on the seat unit and it folds in half) which made it easy for travelling even in London, and on planes. They do make lightweight more compact versions than the GT which presumably have the same unique fold, but I like bouncy wheels to help with kerbs even for city walking. Another benefit to this pram is it will fit a child up to age 5 or 6 for holidays.

City jogger mini

GB Qbit All Terrain. I love mine.

the soswiftee double buggy worked lovely for my twins

I used a Quinny Zapp . That was 7 years ago so don't know if it's still in production.
It was very light and I took it to Australia travelling for 3 months.

Bugaboo bee or silver cross pop

I found the silver cross jet my lifesaver.
It folds up so small, is very lightweight, well padded and easy to maneuver.

Just bought the Uppababy Minu and really love it - slightly bigger than the YoYo but a bigger basket underneath which makes it more useful

My silver cross reflex was the best pushchair I have ever ever had. Gorgeous design and so sturdy and light to push. Son was always so comfortable in it too 😍
