living in a city and requiring the use of a bus to get home from work with my son, I found that a travel system was a definite no-go (too big) and even the normal umbrella fold buggies were a lot of hassle.
I'm not a fan of the really reallly cheap strollers as they don't look comfy or durable.
A search on line found the Quicksmart. At first look I thought it was a bit odd looking but I read on and I was really impressed.
The genius of this stroller is that it folds in on itself, almost into a square. At 6kg it's light enough to carry and you get a bag with it. It has two seat positions, so this is not suitable from birth, but nor does it claim to be.
You can get it in black pink, blue and red, optional extras included a footmuff.
I ordered mine from kiddiecare for £89.99, and received it the next day. It came all set up in a small box, I couldn't believe a functional buggy could come out. And yet it did, with the carry bag and a rain cover.
A read of the instructions shows easily how to fold, there is a knack to it, but you pick it up soon. This will never be a one handed fold, but I can forgive that.
This stroller is fantastic. I can easily get to the bus, fold, pick up, carry a couple of bags and hold my son's hand to get on the bus. I will say I don't usually use the carry bag, as once the buggy is folded securely, it can be easily carried by the main handle.
The shopping basket is non existant but to be honest, something has to give on a stroller this size. The frame is extremely lightweight and can be a bit offputting at first with worrying it might snap. It won't! It can handle a normal bashing like all other strollers. Material is great, standard I would say, the hood is fairly large and has a great 'peek hole' at the top, my son liked to play peek a boo with it lol.
All in all a great buggy.
