Best Lightweight and Travel Strollers
Heralded as the first luxury travel stroller, this impressive model collapses with one hand into a compact size perfect for stowing in the airplane cabin. Not to mention, it’s carseat compatible, has an extra large storage basket, features one-handed driving (leaving your other hand free to tow luggage, hail a cab or sip a much-needed coffee), AND it comes in Air France blue. Swoon.
If you’re looking for lightweight, meet the GB Pockit, also the world’s smallest folding stroller that easily fits into any plane or train overhead compartment. It’s 9 and a half pounds of MIGHTY, with an aluminum frame capable of strolling pipsqueaks up to 55 pounds along with 11 pounds of cargo. But the best part? It’s affordable!
Best Travel Cribs / Pack-and-Plays
Starting with safety, the Nuna SENA Aire mesh design allows air flow from every angle, even the mattress. And when it comes to convenience, set up and break and breakdown are complete within seconds in just a few simple steps. This travel crib also includes a bassinet set-up for infants, and a changing station accessory can be added. The machine washable zip-off mattress makes cleaning extremely easy.
After a long day of travel, nursing baby to sleep is a breeze with the Lotus’ genius zipper door that allows cuddling baby without the worry of waking upon transfer. Weighing only 13 pounds packed, the backpack carrying case makes it easy to traverse the airport. The comfy mattress is machine-washable, and parents rave about the fast and simple set-up.
The BedBox is the world’s only premium ride-on suitcase for children with an inflight bed or leg-rest feature. Combining Scandinavian design with aviation style, this travel essential allows your child to rest comfortably or sleep during long and short haul flights. Fun and functional with ample storage, the BedBox holds your child´s must-haves. Once packed let your little one ride it (or pull it) through the airport terminal for stress-free transport.
Have a long flight ahead? The original Fly Tot cushion helps families with young children travel more comfortably by extending the airplane seat into a miniature bed. Like BedBox, Fly-Tot wants to help your kid get some solid sack time when flying. Their patent-pending design allows the original Fly Tot inflatable cushion to retain its firm structure when inflated. Includes foot pump and carrying strap.
