View Full Version : Lightweight stroller for uneven pavement/sidewalks
06-15-2005, 04:27 PM
Any suggestions for a lightweight stroller good for the uneven sidewalks in my older neighborhood?
I've read posts saying the Combi Soho would not work...but I'm looking for something that I can use for walks around the neighborhood, trips to the mall, and decent for travel. (Am I asking for too much?)
My daughter is ten months old.
Thanks for the help!! There are so many choices, it is overwhelming.

My daughter is also ten months, and I just got her the P3. It sounds perfect for what you're looking for. It steers great, has a nice wide seat, reclines all the way so she can sleep, is big enough for me to change her in so I don't have to use icky mall changing tables, has a decent sized basket, fits well between store aisles, has a child tray (also great for the mall), folds easily and compactly for travel, and is lightweight at 17 lbs (considering the features you get). I looked into TONS of lightweight strollers that would have all these features, and believe me, there aren't a lot of strollers that have it all.

What is a P3? I'm not familiar with this abbeviation, and did not find it on the newbie list.....
Thanks for your help!

You might also consider the Silver Cross Camden. I think it weighs 16 lbs, and I LOVE ours. It handles well even on rough and bumpy sidewalks. (Even though it does not have air-filled tires). It is our do-(almost) everything stroller. It's easy to get in and out of the car, I can fold it with one hand, it's got a GREAT storage basket and a very nice canopy, has a snack tray, and is easy to steer with one hand. Plus, it's a little unusual and (IMO) very attractive.

This is the Peg Perego Pliko P3 - I have one and I love it! It is a fabulous mall/neighborhood stroller for smooth sidewalks with a great sun canopy, plush padding, full recline, snack tray, and decent size basket. Babies R Us and the Right Start Store carry them locally and www.arunningstroller.com is a great place to order them from online. HTH!

The Silver Cross Mini also did amazingly well on the Strollerqueen Obstacle Course. They are having a blow-out sale on them before Saturday, see above post.
