What We Like
  • Most compact when folded

  • Lightweight

  • Smooth steering

What We Don't Like
  • Sunshade not very functional

  • Not suitable from birth

  • Small storage basket

Innovatively crafted, this travel stroller folds into a handbag-sized package in just seconds. That makes it small enough to fit in any plane or train overhead compartment. The small size is also great for parents with compact cars or those lacking indoor storage.

The stroller supports kids from 6 months old up to 55 pounds, so it’s a choice that can last a long time. At just over 10 pounds, it is one of the lightest strollers we reviewed. The breathable mesh fabric will keep your child cool and comfortable while the UPF 50+ sun visor can be adjusted to provide shade—though it doesn't extend to a full canopy.

What We Like

  • One-handed fold

What We Don't Like

This ultimate everyday twin stroller will literally grow as your family does. Ideal for twins or two youngsters close in age, each seat can fit a newborn or a kiddo up to 45 pounds. This stroller can grow from a double to a triple or quad with an expandable tandem add on seat (sold separately).

The seats and their large, four-panel canopies can recline independent of the other, which means one child can recline and sleep in the shade while the other looks out at the world. At only 19 pounds, it’s lightweight for a double stroller. And at 29 inches wide, it can fit through standard doorways without issue.

Dimensions: 33 x 29 x 40.25 inches | Weight: 19 pounds | Max child weight: 45 pounds (in each seat)

Final Verdict

When it comes to baby gear, one of the most important purchases parents will make is for their baby stroller. Travel systems like our Best Overall pick, the Evenflo Pivot Modular Travel System, are easy to use from birth through toddlerhood and include other essentials like an infant car seat and bassinet. Want an upgrade pick that will grow with your family? The UPPAbaby Vista V2 stroller is a great full-size option that also includes a bassinet and can accommodate up to three children with the right attachments and additional seats (sold separately).
