Lightweight strollers are lighter and more compact than full-size strollers and very convenient. They are easier to lift, fold and store. Here are five stylish strollers we love.
Stokke Xplory in Cobalt Blue
Price on request, available at Kids Emporium in Fourways and Kids Emporium in Menlyn Park
This season, cobalt blue is trending in fashion and interiors alike. Join the trend with this limited edition of Stokke Xplory in Cobalt Blue. Bright and cheerful, cobalt blue offers distinctive styling options and pairs beautifully with bold colours for those who like to make a statement, or with elegant neutrals like grey, white, black and beige for a more subtle combination. The Stokke Xplory is height adjustable, so you can raise the seat level to promote interaction and eye contact with your little one. The seat can be either front or rear facing and features a five-point safety harness, as well as an adjustable footrest and handle to provide comfort for both you and your baby.
