The Best Strollers of Fall 1 of 9
Click through for our favorite new strollers that debuted for fall!
Bugaboo Buffalo 2 of 9
The Bugaboo Buffalo is an all-terrain stroller that lets you discover your surroundings.
Perfect for: Parents who love going on adventures with their little one in tow.
Highlights: This all-terrain stroller lets your family explore the outdoors while giving your child a smooth ride. The reversible seat allows your child to face you on your expeditions or discover the world by facing outward. Unlike Bugaboo's other strollers, the Buffalo is equipped with 4 large wheels so that it can handle any terrain. It also has a two-wheel position so that you can pull the stroller through the sand or snow with your child in it. And one of my favorite features of the stroller is its easy fold into a compact position with the seat attached for easy storage.
Age/Weight: Birth to 50 lbs.
Mamas and Papas Armadillo 3 of 9
The newest lightweight stroller from the Great Britain baby brand gives you a compact design with easy one-handed fold.
Perfect for: Parents who want a lightweight and compact stroller that will grow with their baby from the day they are born.
Highlights: My favorite feature of this stroller is just how easy it is to fold. I was able to hold my daughter in one hand and fold the stroller with another, which is rare. Many of the stroller's features allow you to operate it with only one hand, which helps parents that are looking after more than one child while pushing your little one. The seat fully reclines so that baby can take a nap while on the go, and there is also an adjustable leg rest. Although it is a lightweight and compact stroller, it's also a travel system that's compatible with many car seats on the market.
Age/Weight: Birth to 50 lbs.
Summer Infant Fuze 4 of 9A sleek and comfortable travel system that grows with your baby.Perfect for: Parents who want to buy just one travel system stroller that will last them years.Highlights: Unlike many travel systems, the Fuze comes with a universal car seat adaptor. This feature was a huge plus in my book because with many of the strollers that I've had with the girls, I have had to separately purchase a car seat adaptor, making the stroller more expensive than I originally thought. The seat can be forward-facing or rear-facing, depending on the needs of your child. It also folds with the seat attached, which is a great feature that I am particularly fond of. The sun canopy on the seat has a peek-a-boo window that allows you to look in on your child. The window opens and closes with a magnet so that you don't have to worry about the noise while checking in on baby.Age/Weight: Birth to 50 lbs.
Buagboo Cameleon 3(rd) Avenue 5 of 9Inspired by the streets of New York City, this stroller is both chic and sophisticated.Perfect for: Parents who love the features of a Bugaboo Cameleon, but want a stroller that isn't available to the masses and has a sleek look.Highlights: The Bugaboo Cameleon 3(rd) Avenue has all of the great standard features of the original Cameleon, including adjustable handlebars and forward- or outward-facing seat options. Parents will love pushing the stroller with the leather-ized handlebar. Your child will have a comfortable ride in the extra-quilted seat cushion.Age/Weight: Birth to 37.5 pounds
Summer Infant Spectra 6 of 9Weighing in at just under 20lbs, this lightweight stroller easily folds and stands alone while folded, making it extra convenient for parents.Perfect for: Parents that travel often but are looking for a lightweight travel system to make the journey with a baby more convenient.Highlights: This stroller stands upright while folded, which I thought was a really great feature considering I've had to lay some of my strollers on the ground while waiting for a bus here in the city. The stroller also conveniently folds with ease with just one hand. It is a travel system and is compatible with many popular car seat brands.Age/Weight: Birth to 4 years
Bugaboo Pendleton Collection 7 of 9Pendleton isn't just for your clothes or home anymore. Those beloved prints can now be seen on your little one's ride.Perfect for: Those parents who have long loved the classic Native American designs from Pendleton and want to share that passion with their child.Highlights: One of the reasons I love this special edition collection is because each of Bugaboo's strollers has its own Pendleton design. So depending on the Bugaboo stroller that you already own or the stroller that you plan on purchasing, that stroller has a unique Pendleton design. All strollers come with a classic and soft wool stroller blanket to keep your little one warm during these cold months.Age/Weight: Varies, depending on the Bugaboo stroller you purchase.
StrollAir Cosmo 8 of 9The newest single stroller from StrollAir has a sleek design and added convenience for parents.Perfect for: Parents looking for a travel system that comes with all of the accessories that will grow with your child.Highlights: When you purchase this stroller, you get the bassinet, seat, foot cover, rain cover, and mosquito net. Many of the other stroller systems on the market make you purchase many of these items separately adding more onto the total price of the stroller. All of these accessories allow this stroller to grow with your child and let you use the stroller no matter what the circumstance. This lightweight, compact stroller weighs in at just 20 pounds and has a large shopping basket underneath to carry all of your items and baby's items.Age/Weight: Birth to 4 years
Bugaboo Andy Warhol Collection 2nd Edition 9 of 9The art lovers will love the two newly released special edition prints from famous artist, Andy Warhol.
Perfect for: Parents who love and appreciate the works of an artist and want a stroller that will stand out in a crowd.Highlights: The Happy Bugs collection was Warhol's print released in 1964. It is a bright and cheery insect print that definitely will have you stand out in a crowd. The So Many Stars collection is from the late 1950s and features whimsical stars. Both prints are available for all Bugaboo Strollers. From strolling around with this collection in the city, I will tell you that these strollers are definitely conversation starters and will have you appreciating art so much more.Age/Weight: Varies depending on the stroller you purchase
