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

Best Strollers: BOB Revolution

I like this

What differentiates a jogging stroller from a regular one is the stable front wheel that keeps the stroller steady. But unfortunately, it’s not great for maneuverable turns and tight spaces. The good thing about today’s jogging strollers is that many can be put in swivel-wheel mode – like this BOB Revolution – based on what you’re doing. Out shopping? Flip the lever for a front wheel that twists and turns. Going for a jog? Flip the lever back for more stability.

The BOB Revolution performed best in both modes. It rides smooth and effortlessly – perfect for any type of activity – and is solid and stable for jogging. (It also seems to be the most comfortable for a little rider.) The large wheels handle rough terrain better than any other stroller we tested, making it ideal for both urban and rural environments, and the breakdown is one of the easiest we found for such a large all-terrain stroller. Don’t get us wrong – this isn’t a lightweight stroller by any means, but at less than 25 pounds, it’s certainly manageable. (Although you may want a lighter umbrella stroller for daily lugging in and out of your trunk.) Our only complaints: We wish the BOB Revolution had a cup holder for our water while taking jogs as well as an automatic lock when folded.

10/14 Note: Nearly half a million BOB strollers were recently recalled – the models manufactured between November 1998 and November 2010.

    Very good info! We’re in the process of finding the BEST stroller ourselves for your our website. Thanks for the post!

    THANK YOU for compiling this! I’ve tested a few of these…like the Phil + Teds, Bugaboo Cameleon, Mamas + Papas, etc…and I agree with this article on your choices and categories. I think I’m going with the P+T Smart…it looks so cool and ride real smooth. But so many great strollers! My friend has the Joovy Scooter and LOVES it, even though it’s very cheap. Thanks babble!

    Sorry, I disagree with it being “the only stroller you’ll ever need to buy.” I tested one out when my daughter was two years old and she was already too tall to fit in it comfortably! She walks most of the time when we’re out and about, but there are times where she falls asleep in the car and I just put her into the stroller until she’s ready to wake up on her own. I would be pretty disappointed to spend $1000 on a stroller and not even be able to use it for two years.

    Yeah- what about twins and multiples? What is the best stroller for them? I have the Maclaren Twin Techno- and it works for us, but I’m curious to see what Babble comes up with.

  6. Anonymous says:

    any advice on stollers for twins? not for older and younger babies. TWINS. It is very difficult to get comparative info, or actually any info. Very frustrated… maybe just hormonal….

    Bugaboo is indeed a great stroller, we even take it on the plane with no problem at all, my son is 30 months and still fits perfectly and he’s not a small boy, I would recommend it without a doubt

  9. PerezDarrell says:

    my best friend’s mom makes $77 an hour on the computer. She has been out of job for 9 months but last month her check was $7487 just working on the computer for a few hours. Read about it here CashBrave.com

  10. kbaby says:

    I’m surprised to see the Chameleon get so highly recommended. Not that it isn’t a nice stroller, but it’s pretty well known that children outgrow this stroller in height long before weight is even an issue.

  11. Steve says:

    There are a lot of good strollers, but I believe in sticking with the oldest and largest manufacturers. Their size and longevity attest to the fact that they know what they are doing. I like Stokke, Maclaren, Chicco, Quinny, and Graco.
