Inside: A review of the Graco Featherweight ultra-light stroller.
Sometimes, lugging a heavy pushchair around is just not practical, is it?
I recently wrote a post sharing how mums do more of a daily workout compared to office workers that go to the gym. Lifting pushchairs in and out of the car, pushing them up and down hills, it all adds up, doesn’t it?
We are often in and out of London and I find it quite a struggle to lift Wills in and out of trains – not to mention navigating the underground with all of the escalators! Have you ever precariously balanced your pushchair on those escalators? It actually brings me out in a sweat if I have to take the kids on the underground and I will often avoid going in altogether as a result!
As part of our Graco ambassadorship we were sent their new Featherweight, an ultra-light stroller that weighs around the same as a newborn baby and is the lightest stroller in the UK.
We took it with us to London zoo at the weekend and it was perfect for getting around busy tube stations and left me feeling much calmer about the whole trip. We have enough to worry about as mums, without having to worry about the stresses of getting from A to B.
The Featherweight may be lightweight, but it still has everything you need in a pushchair. With Wills being relatively little still, I love that it has a recline option for naptime.
I also love that it has a basket underneath – it is plenty big enough for bags and coats and anything else you need to take around with you.
Graco have thought of everything, having a one-handed fold and a strap to carry it when you need. This came in so so handy at the weekend when Mr F carried Wills and I carried the stroller up and down the underground stairs. It is also slimline enough that it won’t take up space in your car or back at home when being stored away.
It isn’t something to replace your everyday travel system but it is great for day trips or holidays abroad. We will be taking it with us to France in a couple of weeks as we won’t have room in the car for our Graco Avant with all of our luggage.
