Travel Stroller

I was wondering if any of you could suggest a good travel stroller?? WE currently have the Bugaboo Cameleon but it does not fold up!!! We have looked at the Bugaboo Bee but not really sure if we want to spend $600 on a travel stroller!!!

  • We have the Bugaboo Bee and LOVE it!! It's wonderful, and is so very light. We end up using it as our everyday stroller, because the Frog is just too heavy and is a big pain. The Bee turns on a dime, is great in airports, malls, and other crowded places, and is very comfortable for my daughter. She's been riding in it since she was 3 months and she's now 20 months. We travel a LOT, too, and have always been happy with it!!

  • I just use a regular umbrella stroller if I want an easy fold one. But I still use my big one for the mall and stuff. There's no way I would buy a 600-800 dollar stroller.

  • We went to Big Lots and got the Eddie Bauer Convenience Stroller....it was 75 bucks and AWESOME!! It folds up super easy and even though he has a Graco car seat, it still clips right on perfectly! It was an awesome, cheap investment!

  • personally the bugaboo strollers (IMO) are overpriced when you can get something just as functional with lots of great features by cosco or graco. We got the Graco MetroLite stroller. It lays down completely and the bottom part folds up to make a basinette.. the child tray is removable. The parent tray is removable and has lots of room, it has a carseat and base with it, and lots of other really kewl features. To me there is no sense in spending that much money for a name brand; there are plenty of others that are just as awesome and cost a lot less! Check out babies R us if you want the best of the cheaper brands.. that's where we got ours!!
