Graco Featherweight | Review
We loved trying out the Graco Featherweight; an ultra-lightweight pushchair that allows parents to stay on-the-go with ease. At just 3.6 kilograms, it’s one of the lightest pushchairs on the market at the moment.
It is SO light. You won’t understand how light it is until you actual pick it up. And it has a handy strap on it which means that you can put it over your shoulder and carry it with ease. Folding it is a doddle too; it has a one-hand fold system that is easy to do, even with a baby in one arm (trust, me – i’ve tried it!!)
We took this on our holiday to Butlins as a buggy for our 2 year old, Fred. When he started getting tired of an evening, it was easy to just pop him in there (he could actually climb in himself) and he could have a snooze/a rest. We managed to pack a lot into it too – you always need so much stuff, so it’s important that the buggy can take the pressure! The basket underneath is perfect for a canvas bag – I wouldn’t put lots underneath for fear of things falling out, but it’s great if you have one big bag underneath,
My sister-in-law took this on a trip to Disneyland Paris, and she couldn’t help but rave about it too! She told me that it was perfect for that sort of trip; lightweight and easy to manoeuvre, when you’re spending all day going around a themepark you certainly don’t want to take something cumbersome with you. She particularly liked it as it suited her height (she’s 5ft) and she found it easy to push around (as did my brother, at 5’11”)
As it lays flat, it is suitable from newborn. You can’t make it parent facing, but that’s no big deal with a buggy like this. Tommy (5 months) was just as happy in it as Freddie was.
The basket underneath isn’t very big, but that’s a small compromise i’m willing to make for something as easy to use as this. And I certainly wouldn’t take it out in high winds (I wouldn’t even leave my house in high winds, frankly…) but it’s a super pushchair, and this one is now our regular pushchair for Freddie!
