Joie Aire Lite Review

Review Star Review Star Review Star Ghosted Review Star Ghosted Review Star

With a fully-flat reclining seat, this is suitable from birth. It’s great value for money and considerably lighter than other lightweight pushchairs we tested. It offers a smooth ride, thanks to locking double swivel wheels at the front, and suspension on all wheels. We also like the height-adjustable handle and roomy basket.


Tested by Zoe Lester, 24, mum to Isla, six months. She says:

I love how easy this is to fold, even one-handed, and how compact it is when folded. It’s incredibly light but does feel flimsy, so I think there’s little chance of it lasting us into toddlerhood. Also, the hood is very small and the suspension leaves rather a lot to be desired – Isla got bounced around a great deal as I wheeled her to the shops.

Tested by Lizi Brown, 39, mum to Beatrice, 12 months. She says: 

This pushchair is so light, but I found it surprisingly bulky when it was folded up, so it’s not as practical for public transport as a more compact pushchair. It didn't stay tightly folded and took up more space than others in our car. It’s narrow enough to be ideal for nipping around shops, but overall this doesn’t feel robust enough for daily use. It’s an good holiday pushchair, though.

Tested by Amanda Hemmings, 43, mum to Calleigh, 18 months. She says: 

This is light enough to lift really easily, which makes it simple to navigate public transport, but the frame felt a little rickety. The raincover is rather cheap-looking and cumbersome, and Calleigh couldn’t see out of it. Overall this is easy to fold, fits well in our small family car, and handles well. It’s a great value option for a no-frills budget pushchair.
