We've been asked to find some pushchairs at the baby show that would fit into the overhead compartment on an aeroplane. So here's three that we've found.

The first is the Babyzen YOYO 2, this has a two handed fold, weighs 6.2kgs and is really good quality. It takes children up to 22kgs which is great, and has a buggy board addition too for a sibling. It comes in a variety of colours, folds down really small, has a shoulder strap and is incredibly sturdy. It has a high handlebar and all wheel suspension.

The Joolz Aer is also light weight coming in at 6kgs, it fits into the overhead locker of the aeroplane, has an extending sun canopy and takes children up to 18kgs, so not as heavy as the 22kgs with the YOYO. It does have a one hand fold.

The Micralite ProFold is the most economical purchase of the three. It has lockable front wheels. Really good 4 wheel suspension, a peep window on the hood and weighs 7kgs, so it's the heaviest of all three. It fits into the overhead compartment of the aeroplane and takes children up to 15kgs, meaning it's the least weight bearing of the three pushchairs.

These are just a small selection but we hope it helps.
