The low-down on choosing your baby’s first stroller
Whether you’re jetting off abroad or hopping in the car for a UK stay-cay, there’s a range of holiday essentials every parent needs to make things that bit easier – and a travel stroller’s probably at the top of your list.
The Edit guides you through how to choose the best travel stroller for your little one.
What is a compact stroller?
A lightweight, compact stroller’s a handy piece of kit when it comes to ease of use, comfort and practicality. It’s the answer to lots of parents’ problems – whether you’re struggling for storage space at home or needing a lightweight solution when travelling with little ones.
Travel strollers are great for navigating busy streets, airports, public transport and elevators. The Silver Cross Jet 3 and Clic, plus the ProFold from our sister brand Micralite, can even be taken on board an aircraft, offering ultimate flexibility.
At what age can my baby use a stroller?
The Silver Cross Jet 3, Clic and the Micralite ProFold are all suitable from birth, so you can rest assured that your little one will be safe and comfortable from day one. Each stroller can be easily adjusted as your child grows to suit every stage of their development. Full lie-flat mode offers the most comfort and safety whilst they are newborn, and the backrest can be easily moved into the upright position as they get older.
Discover our travel-friendly strollers
Our new and improved Jet 3 stroller is the ultimate holiday companion. Suitable from newborn to approximately 3-4 years old and with a super quick, one-motion fold, Jet 3 was created for the born traveller. It’s compact, lightweight and cabin approved so is ideal for all kinds of vacays – whether you’re boarding a plane or road-tripping.
If you’re in the airport, or you’ve got a little one who likes to venture in and out of their stroller, Jet 3 can be folded and pulled along suitcase-style for ultimate convenience. You can also create a handy travel system by attaching the Silver Cross Dream i-Size infant carrier straight to the stroller’s chassis – meaning minimal disturbance when baby is snoozing.
With durable all-black fabrics and super-soft tan vegan leather accents, Jet 3 is a sleek and stylish choice. With the new Genius™ magnetic buckle, there’s no stress when it comes to getting your little one in and out. Fitting together in three simple clicks, the child-proof buckle takes the hassle away - and means there’s minimal disturbances when baby is sleeping.
ProFold – The Adventure Seeker
Meet Micralite’s ultra-slick, ultra-stylish compact stroller – ProFold. Ready to use from birth to toddler, ProFold is the compact stroller built for adventure. Cabin approved with a practical carry strap weaved into its design, ProFold is perfect for navigating busy areas with a little one who wants to get out and explore. And for smaller babies, the padded lie-flat seat is the perfect place for snoozes on the go.
With its UPF50+ hood and sunshade, ProFold will keep your little one cool and protected when the sun is shining. Available in two muted colourways, ProFold’s minimalistic design is hard-wearing to protect against all elements. And to keep your stroller safe from scratches whilst you’re out and about, the water-resistant stroller bag is the perfect accessory.
Suitable from birth, Clic is our essential everyday stroller that’s small enough to take on board an aircraft. Whether you’re walking in the local park or strolling through a European city, you can always rely on this from-birth stroller. For warmer days spent outside, Clic features a handy UPF50+ hood, sun visor and ventilation panel, so you can be sure your little one is safe and protected whilst you’re strolling.
If you’re travelling around or hopping on and off public transport, Clic’s handy built-in shoulder strap and lightweight design makes it super easy to carry with a little one in tow. And when it’s not in use, Clic can be folded down in seconds to free-stand, with the compact design being easy to slot away – great if you’re struggling for storage space.
There’s a Clic for everyone too, with five contemporary colours crafted from a sustainable jersey fabric made with yarn from recycled plastic bottles.
