It weighs just 6.5kg and measures 55 x 31.5 x 45cm when folded, so it’s very compact and easy to store.

Silver Cross Pop, £150
With a price of just £150, it’s not hard to see why parents are tempted by this small, lightweight stroller from premium brand Silver Cross.

This is more than most other strollers, which can usually only be used until your child is around three years old.
The pushchair has a one-hand fold and comes with a carry handle, carry bag and rain cover.
