Top Budget Umbrella Stroller Picks for 2018

Summer 3D Lite

$70 - $80 (depending on color)

Weighing in at only 12 pounds, this umbrella stroller is ready to go anywhere at anytime. It's your "on-the-go doing errands" stroller.

Despite the very light weight, the wide and sturdy seat accommodates your child up to 50 pounds. 

And if you're on the go, you need a place to put your things, and the Summer 3D Lite has a storage basket you can actually access! For more storage, there's also a pocket in the back for your little things.

Parents like that it is easy to fold and carry around and it is a popular stroller to take with you on vacation to places like Disneyland. For parent convenience, there's a cupholder attached by the handle and for baby, a three-position reclining seat. These are features you're not often going to see at this price.

The reviews on the Summer 3D Lite have ranged between 4 and 5 stars and parents love it for the lightweight convenience. They report that the handles are tall enough that average-height adults won't slump over to push it and the maneuvering is nice and smooth. The carry strap after the easy fold is highly appreciated as is the cup holder.

A more simplified version of the 3D Lite is the Go Lite, which is about $70, (or less) doesn't have as many features, but still has 4-star reviews.

J is for Jeep Brand Scout


Take a look at this budget umbrella stroller and tell me how much it looks like the Summer 3D Lite! J is for Jeep is a newer brand that is a division of Delta Children, who makes budget strollers. 

The Scout is heftier than the Summer 3D Lite at 16 pounds, and has features such as a parent cup holder and ample storage with a basket beneath the seat, pocket behind the canopy and detachable cargo bag on the side.  

It holds your child up to 45 pounds and has a padded 5-point safety harness with a multi-position seat recline. Reflective accents provide extra safety during low light or at night. The sun canopy is rather skimpy, though, but it does have a flip-out sun visor and peek-a-boo window . 

The handle bars are ergonomically shaped and rotate into different positions for just the right angle for your comfort, but do not telescope upward for height. Brakes over each rear wheel are easy to engage and four-wheel suspension smooths out the ride.  

Parents write in enthusiastically giving this budget umbrella stroller high ratings for the reline, sturdiness and easy fold and unfold. A frame clip holds the stroller together once it is folded. The Scout is a popular option as a second stroller or one to take on a trip. It's got 4-star reviews!

Another J is for Jeep option if you have a little more in your budget but stays within $100 is their Atlas stroller with a few more amenities.
