Umbrella fold for enormous toddler
7

VeryBadThings · 21/09/2014 15:37

Looking for an umbrella fold pushchair for my 2.3 year old who is very big for her age. She's a good walker and rarely uses a pushchair at home now but we're going on holiday soon and I expect we'll need the back up of a pushchair for longer days out when she gets tired. Recline and decent hood preferred. Budget of about £100 and happy to consider 2nd hand.

Thanks.

The Kiddy City 'n' Move has a tall seat, recline and a good hood. Look also at the Graco Evo Mini which has a surprisingly large seat and good leg room for a taller toddler.

Any thoughts on the Joovy Groove? I've just seen it described as good for large toddlers on a US site.

Thinking maybe I should just stick with our BJCM GT that we usually travel with although I'd really like a lightweight stroller this time.

I have a joovy groove, if you forced me to use an umbrella stroller it's the one I would go for Grin

Damned by faint praise indeed Grin

So, given the choice of lugging the BJCM GT along or one of the aforementioned, would you stick with the BJCM GT?

I loved the gt but in my mind it's massive and it's not light. So yeah, I would take the groove. It's not lie flat but the recline is decent. Here's my 75th centile 4yo in ours.

Thanks! That's really helpful. I've ordered the Joovy Groove from Amazon...I can always return it if I decided the GT is the lesser of the evils after all.
