    Default You know those cheap umbrella strollers they sell at Wal-Mart

    For like $14? KWIM?

    Does anyone know the weight limit on them? Maybe I'm just unobservant but I can't find it on the back of them with all the warnings and whatnot...

    Not sure. But I have had daycare children use them who were bigger toddlers and probably weighed around 50 pounds.

    Oh really? DD is pretty big for her age, but she's not near 50 pounds. I just worry sometimes when I buckle her in there that it's going to fall apart under her. LOL! And there's no way we could do without what with this bus strike.

    Oh, I wouldn't worry about her falling through it. My nine year old has occassional take a “seat“ in one while we are working in the garage and he hasn't broken it yet.

    I think it would be more of an issue of balance and/or the straps fitting, before it would be a weight issue. Just an opinion. Not based on fact!
    I would figure they'd be good til at least thirtyfive pounds?
    At least 'guaranteed' to that, probably good til more like fifty.

    I found those strollers are not good for me, I am close to 6 feet tall and the handles are too short, back gets sore pushing it.

    I think it's honestly low weight limit. I seem to remember it being around 30lbs and being completely incensed because my children were WAY over the 'limit' before they were old enough to walk long distances.

    DS used his until he was maybe 30 lbs, and I thought the same thing, that it would collapse under him. Never saw a weight limit on mine either.

    I am thinking 35 lbs is the recommended max for those.

    So this sucks. Now I have to lug out the other ones to see if they have higher weight max's. And still they would be a PITA to have to lug around. Booo..

    Diddo! I feel silly pushing them, I look like I have a hunch back! LOL..
    We purposely avoid them for this reason... there are some other “smaller“ ones out there that are a bit better on the back...lol
