The buggy can carry a child weighing up to 2st 3lbs and it fits easily into the overhead cabin on planes
A NEW buggy that folds down into a backpack is promising to take the pain out of travelling with kids.
Anyone with young children has experienced the pain of taking the buggy on holiday, when they have to choose between checking it in or getting prior approval from the flight attendant to take it into the cabin.
But a Baby Jogger reckon they’ve found a way to ease the load with their latest design.
The “City tour stroller” folds up small enough to fit into an aeroplane overhead locker, and is fitted with straps to allow parents to carry it on their back while out and about.
Weighing 14lbs, the buggy is easy to carry around while simultaneously holding other luggage or a small child.
The buggy, which can carry a child weighing up to 2st 3lbs, comes with a UV canopy and offers a number of accessories available for separate purchase.
It doesn’t come cheap though – this buggy will set you back £249
Chris Davenport, Director of Marketing at Baby Jogger, said: “Travelling with children can be stressful and a stroller should ease the burden, not add to it,”
“The new City Tour incorporates features that help parents navigate a variety of travel situations and keeps kids comfortable during any type of journey.”
Earlier this week, a similar invention was revealed by a small Dutch start-up – the Purseat.
Designed to make holidaying and travel easier for the busy parent, Purseat is a 4-in-1 foldable seat that folds down into the size of a large handbag, making it both hand luggage friendly and easy to carry around.
It can be transformed into a fully reclineable travel bed, a booster seat or a car seat, and is suitable for children between the ages of three and 12.
