Parent-facing pushchairs or strollers provide children with more "face time" and interaction with their parents. A British study concluded that these types of strollers assist in the social development of a child. Most pushchairs are large and bulky, but some reliable lightweight strollers are on the market.

Peg Perego 2011 Pliko Switch Stroller

The Peg Perego 2011 Pliko Switch Stroller is the lightest pushchair model on the market. At just more than 7.71kg., it allows the Primo Viaggio SIP 30-30 car seat (sold separately) to be snapped into place either facing the parent or facing forward. A feature of the this stroller is that it folds down in an umbrella form for simple use. The Switch Stroller begins at £260. (All prices are as of January 2011.)

Bugaboo Bee Complete Stroller

The popular, 11.3kg. Bugaboo Bee Complete Stroller carries on the Bugaboo tradition. It offers an aluminium frame and four-wheel independent suspension for a smooth ride. At £390, the Bee is not inexpensive, but it can be quickly and easily open and closed with just one hand. A sun canopy can be purchased for an additional £32. Bugaboo also offers a lifetime satisfaction warranty with the Bugaboo Bee.

Peg Perego Venezia MT Stroller

The Peg Perego Venezia MT Stroller design by Pliko offers a pushchair weighing 8.16kg. and is the only pushchair that reclines to a fully flat horizontal position. Designed to work with the Primo Viaggio car seat, this £195 model also includes an adjustable handle for tall parents, an extra wide seat for toddlers up to 4 years of age and one of the largest stowing baskets available. This stroller also offers quad swivel wheels for ease of maneuverability.

At 10.9kg., the Dreamer Design Park Avenue Stroller can carry an infant or toddler. Its three-wheeled, all-terrain design offers a swivel wheel lockout, a height-adjustable handle and simple, one-step folding.

A bassinet option is available. The model also carries a five-year warranty.

Britax Vigour Stroller
