We spent hours researching car seats for our children to make sure they are safe and secure in our cars, yet when we hit the road, we discover our enormous “tanks” of car seats are difficult to carry, hard to install and can get damaged during transit.

Parent-Approved: The 9 Best Travel Umbrella Strollers [ 2021 ]

Read any of our blogs and you know we love to walk to get to know foreign cities. With a toddler, this requires a great travel stroller. Typical strollers can be big and bulky, which makes them difficult to manage when on the road — they have to be checked at the airport, they take up a lot of space in a trunk, a hotel room or a cruise cabin, and they are often too big to manage in crowded museums and attractions.

This is why a good travel stroller is necessary when taking a long trip, particularly umbrella strollers that are lightweight, compact and fold easily. The following collection of best travel strollers are low in weight and can travel well. Better yet, these strollers have high marks from parents who actually used them on trips.

We love traveling with backpacks, and we think you will, too. If you have a toddler or infant then obviously you’ll have to tote a lot of their baggage. But if your child is older, there’s no reason why they can’t carry all their travel supplies on their own. That’s why we’ve come up with this list of the best travel backpacks for kids and toddlers.
