As Maisie is now 2 going on 12, she is quickly growing out of travel systems and doesn’t often want to be pushed about. When you get to this stage, strollers are great step up from travel systems. They often go up to 4-5 years and take up little room so you can throw one in your boot and forget about it until you need it. They’re also often lightweight so not too bad to push along; even if your child doesn’t go in until they get tired. Some strollers can be used from birth so they’re a great choice if you don’t want a travel system.
