Mompush Lithe Travel Stroller Review

Mompush stroller isn’t usually a top contender when it comes to the best travel strollers, but due to its low price and various positive reviews on Amazon many were asking me to review it. It also comes with a rain cover, a cupholder, and a carrying bag already included.

I have to admit that I was positively surprised by Mompush Lithe V2 stroller. I didn’t expect much and a part of me thought that it would be just as wobbly as Colugo or Bombi strollers, but I was wrong. While it’s not an ideal stroller it could serve as a good budget travel stroller for infrequent trips, as long as you’re fine with having to gate check it.

Pros & Minor Cons of Mompush Lithe Stroller

Age Range – newborn to 40 pounds (18kg)
Stroller Weight – 17.5 pounds (8kg) 
Folded Size – 28 x 21.3 x 13.4 inches (71 x 54 x 34cm)  

Maneuverability & Design

Mompush Lithe is a small, but powerful little stroller. The best features of it include a fully flat recline, an in-built snack tray, and the ability to turn the seat into a bassinet for a newborn without having to get car seat adapters or extra accessories. The only other strollers that do that are Ergobaby Metro and Cybex Eezy S Twist, but both of them are about 3 times as much as Mompush.

The brake of Mompush is easy to access in the middle, but a part of me thinks that it might break easier than on other more luxurious strollers. The bar connecting the wheels is just flimsier than thinner on the Mompush.



Folding and Unfolding of Mompush

The stroller folds easily and if it doesn’t get stuck it could be folded with just one hand. As pictured below when folded Mompush is significantly larger than Babyzen Yoyo and why it’s not approved as a carry-on as it doesn’t fit into an overhead compartment on the airplane.

It does offer a handle (that can be folded down) to roll around, but honestly after 100+ flights with babies and toddlers I just don’t see why would one ever need a handle, so this feature it’s a gimmick. You can either push a stroller when it’s open or carry it when conquering the stairs or transportation, and a carry strap isn’t offered on Mompush.

Weight & Size of Mompush Stroller

Mompush fits in the trunk easily, but also fits the front seat floor area of the car. It won’t however fit in the overhead bin of the airplane, so if that’s something you want it might not be the best choice for you.

Storage Spaces

The underneath basket of Mompush Lithe is spacious enough, but part of the area is blocked by a small pole to keep the footrest up. It will fit a smaller diaper bag or some shopping, but not like a full-size stroller with a huge basket.

The back part of the basket can also be lifted slightly which allows easier access. I wish there were any extra pockets on the back of the canopy or inside the big basket.


Seat Compartment, Recline & Canopy

The extra extending canopy is great and it does have a peekaboo window. The back of the seat and canopy can be removed allowing for extra breeze. It’s not something that you will probably use often unless it’s over 90 degrees outside.

The multi-position backrest, the almost flat backrest is my favorite because a child can nap easily. The footrest is held up by a bar underneath the seat, so it’s stable and stays up, however, it tends to roll up on its own so a younger child’s legs are going to be slightly raised.

The snack tray is a plus. It’s adjustable and removable, but cannot be replaced with a bumper bar.

The seat can be fully upright which is extremely rare, because 99% of the strollers – either travel or full-size, are slightly reclined backward. A fully upright option gives a child an opportunity not to slouch.


Final Verdict

Mompush Lithe travel stroller is a solid budget contender when it comes to compact stroller. If you need something for a quick trip to Disney, travel once a year, or need a back-up stroller in a car it might be a good option.

I wouldn’t use Mompush for frequent trips due to its larger size and wheels being less quality than on Joolz Aer, Ergobaby Metro+ or Babyzen Yoyo, but naturally the price tag is much lower on the Mompush.
