So you have your pram, it's big, it's beautiful and plenty of space in the basket, but you want to go overseas or perhaps go on a road trip with the family, and want to make the most of your travel space, then you will need a travel stroller.
Strollers have come a long way since the McLaren stroller that was first introduced back in the late sixties. Travel strollers can be easy to fold, lightweight, and ideally should lie flat for newborns and tired toddlers. Here are some of the best lightweight strollers that are available in Australia in 2019.
BabyZen Yoyo - RRP $749.00
Personal favourite because of it's good looks, single-handed folding mechanism making it a breeze to set-up in a hurry. The tiny folded dimensions allow this stroller to be one of the few that can fit inside an overhead luggage compartment on a plane. In addition, the Yoyo can now allow a newborn bassinet attachment which can be purchased separately.
