A lightweight pushchair is ideal if you need something that's easy to carry and light to push and they're certainly popular with parents.
But we've found that pushchair weights given on some manufacturer websites are misleading, as they exclude parts that would typically be attached when you use the pushchair.
For example, they might only state the weight of the frame, not the seat unit or hood.
This means that when you're buying a pushchair online without trying it out beforehand, you could find it's heavier than you expect it to be. Read on to find out more.
In our lab tests, we measure the weight of the pushchair including all of the main components to ensure it accurately represents how heavy the pushchair is once it's been fully assembled.
This includes the frame, seat unit, shopping basket, hood and any semi-permanent accessories such as cup holders.
We've delved into our lab data and compared it to the pushchair weights shown on manufacturer websites to find out which models are heavier than advertised.
We looked at the weights of pushchairs tested at our lab in the last year and found that many are heavier than the manufacturer claims.
Below are some of the biggest weight differences we uncovered.
