Hammacher Schlemmer Introduces The Compact Airline Friendly Stroller

New York, NY, May 24, 2016 - Continuing its 168-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces The Compact Airline Friendly Stroller, recognized as such by Guinness Book of World Records because it packs down to the size of a briefcase.

Folding down to 11.75" L x 13.75" W x 7" D—a feat of compact efficiency unmatched by any other stroller available—it easily fits into a car’s back seat, under an airplane seat, or in an overhead storage bin, and its sturdy aluminum and ABS construction grants it a weight of only 9.5 lbs.

"Its expertly engineered folding design requires only a press of the telescoping handles’ two thumb buttons, a gentle downward push, and locking the hinged wheels in-place to make it ready for storage," explained Hammacher Schlemmer's General Manager Fred Berns. "Parents can demonstrate within five seconds to doubtful flight attendants that this stroller need not be gate-checked."

An upward flick deploys the stroller for use and it supports children between 6 months up to 55 lbs. Rolling on four pairs of twin wheels—the front wheels can swivel or lock-in straight—it meets all ASTM safety standards with a five-point harness, and includes a sunshade and mesh storage compartment.

The Compact Airline Friendly Stroller is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $249.95.For more information about this products, please contact Trish Hammond at (847) 581-8987 or via e-mail at
