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 URBAN | Mamas & Papas Urbo Elite
We tested out quite a few strollers from UK-favorite Mamas & Papas, but their wildly popular, urban-designed Urbo stroller was completely out of stock and therefore unavailable for testing. Due to popular demand, Mamas & Papas has since released the Urbo Elite, which has the same lightweight (20 pounds), narrow frame, and useful features (reversible seat, large canopy, and all-wheel suspension) as the original Urbo.
