Want a full-featured luxury stroller with a smaller and lighter package?

That’s exactly what British import Mamas & Papas delivers with its Urbo Stroller ($499).

From the ultra-comfy reversible seat to the sleek frame and easy one-handed push, it makes strolling around with your baby a breeze.

We can definitely see why celeb mom Isla Fisher is a fan.

Things We Like: There’s so much to like, but our fave feature is the reversible seat, which has three recline modes to ensure your baby has a smooth ride.

For newborns, just add the company’s carrycot ($200) or attach the Graco or Maxi Cosi infant car seat — both are compatible — for a full travel system. It also works for tots up to 50 lbs, so the adjustable foot rest and large sun canopy definitely come in handy.

The Urbo’s fold is also so compact, it’s easy to store in the car or in a closet. And the leather-covered handle, which you can adjust according to your height, keeps hands from getting too hot or cold when the seasons change.

Another plus? It comes with a large shopping basket so there’s room for all your mommy essentials.

Things We Didn’t Like: You can’t fold it down with the seat facing you, plus you’ll need two hands. And at 20 lbs, the Urbo is a bit too heavy to tote onto the bus or down subway steps.

Moms & Babies Rating: We love that it has all the features you’d want in a cushy ride and that it fits into tight city spaces. But we do wish it was a bit lighter.

Yes I agree it does look like a wheel chair,I guess because of its steel look. I bought it 2 days ago and I won’t return it just because I don’t like to return stuff that I buy. Maybe I can paint it another color. Overall I think its a great stroller . Gave my 3 month old baby .and she seems to love it add she fell asleep after a few Minutes.
