Choosing a compact stroller or travel pushchair?

Choosing a compact stroller or travel pushchair?

Why a compact travel pram is perfect for more than just holidays.

Going on holiday aboard or taking a staycation? You’re probably going to want to take a compact travel stroller with you, to save space in the overhead compartment or in your car boot. But compact strollers are actually incredibly useful long after the holiday has finished.

Life as a parent can be extremely busy and simple errands can become a challenge when you have a little one - plus all their essentials - in tow. Many first-time parents purchase a full-size pram – which of course has its pro’s - but can sometimes feel like a burden when you’re out and about, particularly as your little one gets older. A compact stroller can make getting around, popping to the shops and nipping out for the school run so much more convenient.

And now that many compact strollers offer plenty of the same functions as a full size pushchair or pram, a compact pram can give you convenience without compromise.

Here are some of the benefits of many compact strollers:

They’re compact. As their name suggests. Unlike a full-size pushchair, this kind of stroller is much easier to store when it’s not in use or in car boots and overhead storage compartments. They’re also easy to push and maneuver around shops, airports or busy streets.

 

They’re lightweight. A stroller that is lightweight is easy to lift and carry, making them perfect for people who have to store their stroller on public transport or when lifting them in and out of their car boot.

 

They’re great for travel. As compact strollers are easy to store and are lightweight they make travelling, at home or away, a breeze. Fitting easily in to the boot, the footwell of the car, or folding to store on a busy bus or train can be a really convenient feature for a stroller. Some – including many of CYBEX’s latest pushchairs - even fit the overhead storage on a plane, or have a convenient storage bag or carry handle.

They’re adjustable. Whether we’re talking backrest or footrest it’s important that your choice of compact stroller can adjust to keep your child comfortable. A fully adjustable backrest will ensure a comfortable sleeping position and an adjustable footrest allows your child to lie down with their feet elevated to ensure a comfortable rest.

They can have all-season use. As a compact stroller shouldn’t just be for holidays, in addition to fabrics with UPF sun protection and adjustable sun canopies, all of CYBEX’s compact strollers come with a rain cover, making them ideal for use in any weather, at home or away.

Why choose a compact stroller from CYBEX?

With a large selection of travel and compact strollers on the market it’s important to find one that suits your style and lifestyle. The latest range of compact strollers from CYBEX at Mamas & Papas offer a range of functions and features, so whether you are looking for something that is airline cabin approved or has a parent and world-facing seat you will be sure to find the best compact stroller for you from the Cybex range.

All of the CYBEX strollers are available in a range of on-trend colours, come with a raincover, and feature the innovative one-pull harness function. They all allow you to attach an infant car seat such as the Cloud T i-Size to make transitioning from the car to the streets as smooth as possible (adapters sold separately).

COYA

The newest addition to the range from CYBEX is the stunning COYA. Created for fashionable urban parents the ultra­compact COYA delivers maximum comfort and the luxury style CYBEX is known for. This ultra-compact stroller is lightweight and perfect for travelling and can be used from birth and with an infant carrier, including the CYBEX Cloud T i-Size. In addition to being airline cabin approved and weighing just 6.6kg it’s easy to lift into an overhead locker or store in your car boot or footwell.

The COYA has a one-hand, one-second fold making it really quick and easy to fold and carry with the shoulder strap. While the COYA is ultra compact you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the generous seat size, that lies flat and has an adjustable footrest. The COŸA also features a handy zip pocket on the back of the stroller, perfect for securely storing valuables like your phone or keys. Travelling to a hot destination? Simply remove the padded comfort inlay allowing your child to rest on the breathable mesh fabric which allows air to circulate through the backrest on hot summer days.​

Orfeo

The ultra-compact ORFEO stroller is lightweight and perfect for travelling from birth and can be used with an infant carrier, including the CYBEX Cloud T i-Size. In addition to being airline cabin approved, so you can take it on the plane with you, and weighing in at only 6.3kg it’s easy to lift into the overhead locker, car boot or footwell.

The Orfeo has a one-hand, one-second fold making it really quick and easy to fold, the carry handle allows you to easily pop it on your shoulder and carry it. Although it folds into a really small package, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the generous seat size, that lies flat and the adjustable footrest.

Eezy S Twist +2

Offering something rarely seen in a pushchair, never mind a compact stroller - the Eezy S Twist +2 can be parent or world facing with a 360 degree swivel! Just lift up the footrest and rotate to your preferred position. It’s also different from other strollers as it can be used from birth in a few different ways - with the parent facing, lie-flat seat, a full sized carrycot, a cocoon or your infant carrier on the frame.

The extra functions mean that this is the largest fold in the range but still compact enough for travel. The UPF50+ hood on this stroller is very generous with an extension panel to extended it over your child. This stroller is a great, substantial option if you need a compact travel system for your newborn baby or are looking for a smaller option for your second child that still offers all the benefits of a compact stroller.
