  • Buggies that weigh less than a 6-month-old baby...

    Having a lightweight buggy can make all the difference when you’re travelling with a baby or toddler and a pushchair, or even if you tend to use public transport or your car a lot. They’re also great options to leave at Grandma’s or with your regular childminder. But just because a buggy’s light on weight, doesn’t mean style, usability or practicality have to be trimmed back, too. Our step-by-step lightweight buggy buyer's guide can help.

    Here we’ve picked 10 of the best options that weigh less than 6kg, to help lighten your load…

  • Maclaren Mark II, £170, 3.3kg

    Suitable from 6 months, the Maclaren Mark II dinky weight means you can negotiate public transport, or lift it in and out of the car boot, without breaking a sweat.

    Complete with a 5-point harness, xtra-large UPF 50+ hood with mesh peek-a-boo window and extendible sun visor, the Mark II is also very compact when folded, so it will fit in the boot of small cars.

    You can buy the Maclaren Mark II from John LewisMothercare, or on Amazon

  • Hauck Disney Go-S, £29.95, 4.6kg

  • Quinny Yezz, £175, 5kg

    The Quinny Yezz is an eye-catching 3-wheeler buggy, suitable from 6 months to 3 years. As well as being easy to fold and unfold, it boasts a shoulder strap and our reviewer thought it’d be especially convenient if you're on and off different modes of transport.

    It doesn’t offer many extra features – such as seat recline or adjustable handle height – but it feels robust and is easy to manoeuvre.

  • Mee-Go Feather, £130, 5kg

    As the name suggests, the Mee-Go Feather is designed to be light, weighing just 5kg.  Here’s the science bit: it has an aluminium frame that’s constructed using a honeycombed technique.  It's the same method used in the aerospace industry, and uses the least amount of material to reach minimal weight and provide maximum strength (particularly in tension).

    Although it's not as compact as you may expect from a light buggy, our reviewer found the Feather to be brilliantly easy to fold and great to push.

  • Mothercare XSS Pockit Stroller, £129.99, 3.9kg

    The Mothercare XXS Pockit Stroller is the lightest and compact stroller to hit the market for 2016.

    It weighs a teeny 3.9kg and set the Guinness World Record for being the world’s “smallest commercially available folded pram.”

    When launched at the 2015 K&J Baby and Toddler trade fair in Germany, it was displayed floating off the ground. The ingenious creators GB fixed an air-blower underneath the stroller, so it hovered several centimetres above the platform - showing just how light it is.

  • UPPAbaby G LUXE, £149.95, 6.1kg

    The 2015/16 version of this ever-popular UPPAbaby stroller, the G-LUXE now has removable machine-washable covers, an improved hood design that’s easily lowered and raised and a new front chassis profile.

    The very robust, compact umbrella fold means the G-LUXE can fit in small car boots, and it also has a carry strap, so you can carry it over your shoulder – a useful addition for when you are going away and in an airport or going up and down stairs, for example.

    Our reviewer loved it so much she awarded it one of our very few 5 out of 5 stars!
