The Best Umbrella Strollers for Parents on the Move

Umbrella strollers are lightweight, easy to fold, and ideal for quick outings.

by Dave Baldwin

If you plan on taking quick day trips, whether to the park or the playground, you need an umbrella stroller. For those not in the know (or those with an abundance of space), an umbrella stroller is meant for older babies, toddlers, and even younger preschoolers, and its claim to fame is that it’s lightweight and crazy-easy to fold up. The handles face upward, like you see on an umbrella, hence the name. The best umbrella strollers are small, easy to collapse, ultra-compact, and simple to transport. They’re ideal for parents who need a set of baby wheels without a ton of bells and whistles.

The umbrella strollers on this list all weigh less than 20 pounds. Many of these recline, which is rare to find in this category. They’re easy to fold, easy to tote around, and get the job done.
