Walk this way!

Looking for an easier stroller to transport everywhere? These lightweight strollers are sometimes called "umbrella" strollers because they fold up small and can be carried around. We've rounded up our favorite brightly colored lightweight picks, most suitable for babies 6 months and older.

The citrus-hued Groove sports a reclining seat and giant shady canopy for Baby and tall handles for Mom. You'll both be 100 percent comfy during day trips. ($200; Joovy.com)

Double duty

Here's a lightweight you can use from Day One. The backrest of the Liteway Plus folds down so you can click on a car seat. Genius! ($180; ChiccoUSA.com)

What a Character

If your preschooler only needs an occasional seat on a long outing (we're thinking theme parks here!), you could use one of the Disney Character Umbrella Strollers, from Delta. ($25; Sears.com)
