Babble Best Picks: Strollers
One of the biggest purchases for your baby is the stroller, riddled with safety, style, and status issues - as well as affordability, of course, considering some strollers climb above the $1,000 mark. The choices and questions are seemingly endless: How do you accommodate your newborn without wasting money on a short-lived purchase? What are the features you absolutely need? Are luxury strollers really worth it? Can you find a good stroller in the $100 range?
To make your search easier, Babble assembled and test-drove over 30 of the newest strollers - from lightweight umbrella strollers to all-terrain joggers - to find the best of the best for every budget, geographic location, and age group. Did we miss one? Nominate your favorite stroller here.
READERS’ CHOICE | Chicco Liteway
If you’re looking for a simple, lightweight, affordable umbrella stroller that will get you from Point A to Point B, this is a great choice. While it’s not the best umbrella stoller, it has all of the features you need, including: a seat that reclines almost flat, good maneuverability, and a compact fold. It’s roomy and cushiony for babies of all ages, with only one complaint: the canopy. The viewing window up top isn’t covered with a flap, like most stroller canopies, and therefore lets too much light into the stroller – especially frustrating when your little one is napping. Of course you can always cover the transparent square with a blanket, but it’s something to keep in mind.
Bottom line: It’s a good value for the affordable price.
