With a European style that can be used for children up to 50 lbs, the Wisp has all the necessary features in a stroller. While it is not over the top with all the bells and whistles of full featured/high-end strollers, the Wisp has what you need to stroll comfortable and in style.

  • Handles are not adjustable
  • Stroller seat does not recline flat so stroller cannot be used with a baby under 6 months
  • Does not have one-touch brakes
  • Does not stand when folded
  • Stroller basket not very large
  • Stroller basket inaccessible when car seat is in the stroller because the seat has to be reclined
  • Seat doe not recline much – not great for a sleeping baby or child

  • Can’t sit on top of a shopping car due to lack of grooves and notches
  • Difficult to remove carrier from base and stroller
The Wisp is affordable at $299.99 for the whole system – stroller, car seat and base. What a great deal for a stroller that is lightweight, durable and most of all safe! Although currently on Amazon the Wisp Travel System is on sale for only $187 down from regular price at $229.99. The stroller is more of a bare-bones stroller like an umbrella stroller but heavier. DO NOT buy the WISP if you want a super comfortable stroller with lots of great features. It is ok but great for the price!
