Oh, the joys of a small stroller! As a first time mom I thought the only way my son would be comfortable while out strolling was in a huge stroller. What I didn’t take into consideration was that I would have to lug the comfy monster stroller in and out of my car and that it would take up my entire trunk! A year later I have learned so much: I have realized that I am not a monster stroller kind of girl. I much prefer the simple pleasures of a nice comfy lightweight stroller. My latest fave is the Micralite FastFold Superlite.
This is by far the most comfortable, user-friendly lightweight stroller that I have ever seen. It has a nice comfy seat that is made of a mesh material that was perfect for all of our hot summer outings. The seat also reclines, which is a luxury in a smaller stroller. The large all-terrain rear wheels make for a nice, smooth ride even on bumpier ground. It also has a five-point harness, which is great for all children, but especially for use with smaller infants.
My favorite thing about this stroller, though, is how easy to use it is. It stands while folded, which is awesome in a crowded parking lot holding a 1-year old. It folds and unfolds easily with just one hand. And at 14 pounds, I can even lift it into the back of my car while holding my 20-pound son! The brake on the FastFold is the best brake I’ve seen on any stroller, big or small. It is large and engages both wheels for total security.
I was also really excited to learn that this stroller can be used as a travel system with both the Maxi-Cosi and Graco infant car seats. I would definitely recommend it in lieu of a travel system or as an umbrella stroller. I just can’t say enough good things about the FastFold. It has truly made my life so much easier!
