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 ON A BUDGET | Joovy Scooter
It might not have a reversible seat, one-handed maneuverability, or the ability to convert to a double, but it just might be the best $140 stroller you’ll ever buy. It has a huge sun canopy, the largest storage capacity out of any stroller we tested, a cushiony, comfortable seat that fully reclines, and a bumper bar and cup holder, plus it’s compatible with an infant car seat. It also weighs less than 20 pounds and rides smoother than we expected. (Although beware that the orange color is really bright. If you don’t want to stand out, opt for a different color.)
