Best Lightweight Strollers – Baby Gizmo Awards 2015

Best Lightweight Strollers

This week we have shared our favorite single and double strollers but we’re not stopping there! Oh no, we know that some parents are looking for lightweight strollers, whether it be for travel or everyday use. So we are sharing lightweight strollers that we loved in 2015 and that we currently love (since we are just a few weeks into 2016).

  1. I have the Mountain Buggy Nano. We are about to leave on a trip where we will be taking a train to our destination, but flying back. I’m really hoping this stroller works for us. I like how compact it folds and that it has a strap to carry it.
