What Is a Stroller?

First things first, we need to establish exactly what a stroller is and, therefore, how it differs from other travel systems on the market today.

A stroller is a lightweight and portable device. It is suitable for babies or toddlers and is extremely useful for everyday use due to its lightweight nature.

You can take a stroller with you anywhere and everywhere. This is all thanks to its ability to be folded down. It is similar to a pushchair or buggy in this way, but the difference with a stroller is that it can be folded down to an extremely small size compared to other types of baby devices.

Strollers' small size makes them perfect for storing in small spaces if you have limited storage room, or for storing in the smallest of car boots when travelling by car, or when journeying by any other form of transport too.


How to Unfold a Stroller

Unfolding your Lejoux Stroller is simple, all it requires is one adult to complete it, and, amazingly, only one hand too. This is how you unfold a stroller from Lejoux:

  • Step one: From the folded position of your stroller, hold onto the handlebar and get ready to pull it open.
  • Step two: Rest your foot on the foot bar next to where the break is. This will steady the stroller and hold it in one place as it begins to fold out.
  • Step three: From here, the stroller will spring out to its fully folded-out position, and from here, you can flip down the footrest, ready for your little one.
  • Step four: That is it! You are now ready to safely seat your baby or toddler in the stroller, ready for your adventures together.


How to Fold a Stroller

  • Step one: Hold onto the handlebar and press the button on it to fold. This can be done with either one or two hands.
  • Step two: Push down on the device as you push down on the button, and you will begin to feel the stroller naturally collapse into its folded position.
  • Step three: You are done, and your stroller is now in its folded position.

Altogether, the Lejoux Travel Stroller can be folded down in as little as 2 seconds! Catch any plane, train, or bus in a rush, stress-free!

Stow your baby stroller away quickly, neatly, and safely, all at the touch of a button. This genius design is the go-to travel stroller for families everywhere.


Things to Note When Unfolding Your Stroller

If this is the first time you are unfolding your stroller, make sure you familiarise yourself with the folding mechanism before you jump straight in.

You will want to make sure you know which parts are going to fold out to avoid grabbing the wrong bar and potentially trapping some fingers.

If there are little ones nearby, you will want to make sure that they are safely out of the way while you unfold your stroller.

Make sure you have enough space to unfold your stroller successfully and that there are no objects around or in the way.

Fully read the instructions that come with your stroller before you attempt to unfold it. This will help you understand how the whole stroller operates before you attempt to figure it out yourself.

When you have folded out your stroller, make sure it is safe and in the fully locked-out position before attempting to place your child in it.

Always apply the breaks whenever seating your baby into the stroller and the same applies when removing them from it. Ideally, your stroller should always be on a flat surface when doing this too.
