As a Mum, Grandma, and with a daughter who is a primary teacher, Alison draws on a wealth of experience for her child-related Hubs.
A Cosco lightweight stroller is so convenient for parents looking for a second stroller that is just perfect because it does not take up too much space, can be folded up easily and is brilliant for travelling as it can be taken on aircraft and public transport as well as being so easy to stow in the car. Cosco have been at the forefront of the manufacture of good quality products for parents with children since 1935 and the brand is well known for it’s dedication to safety whilst offering truly excellent value for money.
I have featured the top two bestselling Cosco lightweight strollers that get the highest rating in customer reviews. The first is the amazing Cosco Umbrella stroller that folds up (as the name suggests), just like an umbrella that makes it perfect for short shopping trips and so on at such an amazing price and with such lovely fabric prints, no wonder this model is a bestseller!
You need to bear in mind though that these lightweight strollers are not suitable for newborns. Your baby needs to be able to sit up for short periods and Cosco state that both models are suitable for infants from 15lb in weight, up to a maximum of 40lbs.
Cosco Umbrella Stroller
The Cosco Umbrella Stroller is just perfect for parents who need a lightweight, portable stroller that is easy to manoeuvre and fold away in the trunk of the car or when travelling on public transport.
The umbrella or scissor folding action enables the stroller to be opened and closed quickly and easily. There is a three point safety harness system and excellent braking as the rear wheels can be locked for safety.
Ideal for babies who can sit up by themselves, are at least 15lbs in weight and less than 40lbs in weight.
Stroller weighs only 7.7 lbs, has fixed handle height and wheel size is four inches in diameter.
The Cosco Umbrella Stroller is a bestseller on Amazon.com with an average of four stars in the reviews section.View the full range on offer with this Cosco Umbrella Stroller link - or pick a specific model from the range below.
Here are a couple of reviews from happy customers.
"For the price I wasn't expecting much
but it surpassed my expectation and more.
I wasn't going to spend a fortune on a 3rd stroller in 1 year
It maneuvers in the smallest places which is a plus especially when we eat out in small restaurants."
"I really love this stroller. I saw others posted that it was hard to fold up. Not for me at all. It was really easy. This stroller is super cute. I got the dino camo print, and it is perfect for my son. I also love the fabric. It is durable, but breathable. It is well worth the price. I would definitely suggest to others!"
Cosco Deluxe Comfort Ride Lightweight Stroller, Wild Adventure
This Cosco Lightweight Stroller is easy to fold with a center folding system so it is very easy to stow away and perfect for travel. It has a durable but lightweight frame and weighs just eleven pounds. In addition to the three point safety harness and a two position reclining seat. I like this feature as it means that if your little one wants a nap, you can pop the seat back into the reclining position. In fact, this stroller has many features normally found on a much more expensive item.
There is a useful mesh storage basket, a parent tray with two built in cup holders and a child tray that also has a built in cup holder. The neat adjustable canopy is large enough to be effective and has two mesh windows.
Once again, although this stroller has a recline position, it is designed for children of fifteen pounds and up. The maximum child weight is forty pounds.

Hi mamasport3, thanks so much for leaving your comment, it is always great to get a personal recommendation of any product and if the Cosco umbrella stroller stood up to three little ones it definitely gets my vote too!

I loved my no frills Cosco umbrella stroller. It was everything I needed and lasted through all three of my kiddos.
