-Strollers are among the must-haves of a parent with a baby. It helps you when it gets tiring to carry your baby everywhere. But choosing a stroller isn’t as easy as one would like to think twice. Many available models out there come with different price ranges. It’s similar to buying a car.
To help you decide, here is a list of the best strollers in the market. This list was made as a result of compiling and combining thousands of reviews, both online and in real life. They have been rated based on ease of use, maneuverability, storage space, and folding system.
Best Overall Stroller
Baby Jogger City Mini
Strollers tend to be big and bulky, making them difficult to fold when you don’t have any help. However, this one only weighs 18 pounds and can be easily folded on your own due to its Quick-Fold handle. The stroller can also conveniently climb curbs and other obstacles.
Its storage space is big enough to keep a lot of your stuff. You can fold it with one arm while carrying a baby. Many also seem to love it because it has more than 80% Amazon positive reviews (5 stars).
While the Baby Jogger is fantastic, it’s not perfect as there are other strollers with bigger storage space, and the minimal storage makes it difficult to pull out medium-size bags. It may be light and durable, but the seat is thin and needs more padding.
Car seats/warranty information: Children weighing 50 pounds can use this. It is compatible with BOB, Peg Perego, Chicco, Britax, Graco, Baby Jogger, Cybex, and Maxi-Cosi car seats.
Best Value Stroller
If you’re on a budget, then this one might be good for you. The Chicco Viaro is the most affordable. Its three wheels design is close to the Baby Jogger City Mini. Its frame is also light, and it has a tight turning radius. It is also easily foldable.
Although the City Mini is preferable, this one has a more prominent and more accessible storage basket. The stroller has a cup holder and child tray.
However, Viaro’s canopy doesn’t connect to the back, so your baby might get sick from the rain. But overall, the stroller is worth its affordable price.
Car seats and time warranty: Children weighing up to 50 pounds or aged 36 months can use this. It is compatible with Chicco KeyFit and KeyFit 2 car seats. It does have a one year warranty.
Best Premium Stroller
A relatively lightweight and stylish stroller, the Bugaboo Bee5 is one of the most favorite premium strollers in the market today. It has a four-wheel suspension, making its ride smooth. Its maneuverability, storage, and folding ability make it great for people who will climb the stairs.
Another advantage of getting Bugaboo B5 is that you get instant and easy access to the basket by folding the seat up. It also has a reversible seat and a sturdy frame.
The shade of the stroller is stylish, but the canopy frame feels fragile and is challenging to peek through. Moreover, it needs two hands to be folded.
At $739, it’s undoubtedly a premium. You don’t need to pay $700 for a stroller, but the premium strollers tend to be high-priced too.
Warranty and car seat details: It can carry children with a weight of up to 37.5 pounds and is compatible with car seats from Britax, Maxi-Cosi, Cybex, and Chicco. You can get a two- or three-year warranty if you take the time to register.
Baby Jogger City Select LUX
Another product under the Baby Jogger brand is the City Mini, but unlike that one, the City Select LUX is bigger. Its frame is thick and robust; it has bigger wheels and bigger storage space. It’s not that easy to fold like the mini, but it can still be folded nicely.
Having a stroller like this for only one child may be a bit too much, especially with its 30.4-pound weight and colossal wheelbase. It can be challenging to navigate small areas like busy stores. You just might need to leave it in a parking lot if you live in the city.
On the other hand, maneuvering is very smooth, and its handbrake system is similar to a bike, which is useful when going down a slope.
What makes it stand out, though, is its capacity to take a second seat. This is almost unique to the City Select LUX and is useful if you’re planning to have more kids. Ultimately, this is the preferred stroller for long-term use.
Details on car seats: This one can take kids up to 45 pounds per seat and goes with car seats like Graco, Britax, Maxi-Cosi, Peg Perego, Baby Jogger, Nuna, Chicco, Cybex, and BOB with adapters. You can have one year of warranty for the other parts except for the wheels.
Britax 2017 B-Agile 3
Britax B-Agile 3 has similar features as the City Mini and the Chicco Viaro with its three wheels design, folding ability, and storage space. At $216, you can get all these, plus the chance to purchase separate parts like the tray and cup holder. It’s not the best when it comes to value, but because of the qualities mentioned above, it’s still worth the price. It’s more affordable than the City Mini too.
Warranty info: This stroller can take kids up to 55 pounds and give you a two-year warranty. The car seats you can use are from Chicco Key Fit/Key Fit 30, Graco SnugRide 32/35 (not Click Connect), and Peg Perego Primo Viaggio.
Summer Infant 3Dlite
This stroller is quite famous when it goes on sale at $60. Since it’s a lightweight stroller, it doesn’t have ample storage space.
Parents love using the Summer Infant 3Dlite when they take their babies for walks in the park. Maneuvering is not very easy, though, and you will also need two hands to fold and pack it away. For its regular price of $100, it’s affordable and can make a good backup stroller be a good stroller.
Car seat and warranty info: It doesn’t support car seats, but it is suitable for children weighing up to 50 pounds. It also has a one-year warranty.
Mountain Buggy MB Mini
The Mountain Buggy is known for its durability. The MB mini is similar but is customized more for city dwellers. Its large tires aren’t air-filled but more similar to the ones in city mini. This helps you overcome significant obstacles like tree roots.
Weighing 16.8 lbs, this is a lightweight stroller with a compact footprint. While it can be folded with one hand, it’s tricky to do it. It’s worth $350.
Car seat and warranty info: It can carry children weighing up to 44 lbs and comes with a year warranty. The compatible car seats are from Mountain Buggy, Chicco, phil&teds, Graco, Maxi-Cosi, Cybex, and Safe-n-Sound.
To Sum Things Up
There are quite a lot of strollers to choose from. But while you’re at it, keep in mind that to choose what you and your baby need. If your little one is more on the heavy side, then go for the bigger and more durable stroller. If he’s slim and active, you can opt for a smaller and easy-to-fold option.
Think of convenience, durability, and comfort. Of course, it needs to be genuinely eye-catching enough to want to see your child on it.
