Best Travel Strollers
When we talk travel strollers, we are looking for a lightweight travel option, that is also comfortable and practical, so our children can relax while we are out and about. Our top travel strollers need to be easy-to-use and compact into a small size, to fit into airplane overhead lockers or small car boots.

At just 6kg, it’s one of the lightest strollers in the market and with a width of just 44cm, you can take the Joolz Aer all the way into the airplane. You can carry the stroller on your shoulder with the flexible carry strap. What separates the Joolz Aer apart from other lightweight prams on the market is it’s longer backrest, which provides additional head support, even for taller children.

Best Full-Size Prams (single only)
A full-size single pram generally comes with the most features and extras i.e cupholders, sun covers, extra storage, recline functionality and extra padding. Full-size prams are the best prams for everyday use because they are more sturdy and stable, which means they handle most terrains. You will be spending a lot of time with your full-size pram, so it is important you choose the right features to suit your lifestyle. Our experts have voted on the below prams, as the best prams for everyday use.
The Bugaboo Fox2 is one of the best full-size prams on the market. This pram uses power steering that allows you to steer the pram using little force and navigate turns and tight spaces much easier.
