Features and accessories

Many strollers in this type offer also a shoulder strap for convenient carrying. Therefore when you toddler is tired of riding in a stroller and want to walk, you can easily fold the stroller and carry on a shoulder.

The fact that lightweight and umbrella strollers weigh so little doesn’t mean they are not useful or comfortable. Usually these strollers have the same or only few less features than full-sized strollers.

Some lightweight strollers, like for example BABYZEN YOYO+, features recline seat, 4-wheel suspension for comfortable ride, large basket under the seat, extendable canopy that protects baby from sun rays and carry strap for convenient transportation.

Other strollers, for example GB Pockit, have less features, but they work excellent as travel strollers. GB Pockit weighs only 9.5 lbs and after folding it is a small package which every mom can fit into her bag.
