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.
BEST PRAM/NEWBORN | Inglesina Classica
A real-life doll carriage, Inglesina blends old-world design (sturdy material, a spring-like base for bouncing your little one to sleep, vintage style) with modern maneuverability. We felt as though we should be strolling down cobblestone streets on our way for a spot of tea. Every last detail of the stroller is stunning, from the delicate yet sturdy chrome Balestrino frame to the precious carrycot, which was handmade in Italy. There’s also a separate stroller seat for bigger babies, although we didn’t test that attachment. The Inglesina Classica is more of a treasured family heirloom than a daily stroller that you’d lug in and out of your car. And at $1,325, it better be.
