Top Best Baby Strollers Reviews – April 2017 Updated

There are without a doubt several baby strollers available in the market today; I mean every manufacturer wants a share of the proceeds from this market. This is all the more reason why you must be keen on what choice of stroller you make for your baby. A good baby stroller should be one that is not only durable but should also be one that is adaptable to your needs i.e. maneuverable and lastly  should make parenting easier for you. We have compiled a list of some of the best baby strollers but before than let’s take a deeper look into the considerations you need to make when purchasing a baby stroller.

Type

Strollers come in different types. There are those specific for jogging, travelling, umbrella or just standard strollers. Other types have combined functions such as jogging/strolling or even standard stroller that incorporates sporting options. Some are made to double up as an infant car seat when travelling.

Maneuverability and Portability

You need to consider whether you want a stroller that can fold without a farce or one that has a freely held wheel at the front. Whichever works for you, make sure it is maneuverable and portable.

Features

Take a look at the specific features of the baby stroller and see what you want. Maybe you want one that has a padded or reclining seat that is adjustable or one that doubles up as an infant car seat when traveling- the choice is up to you. You may want to look out for more accessory adapters” such as a snack tray to keep you baby fed even when taking a stroll or one that has an improved suspension system that guarantees your baby a smooth ride.

Price

The price range for most strollers is somewhere between 100-300 dollars. Additional premium features tend to push up the prices but of course one should expect that the pricier a baby stroller is, the better its package. You might want to consider spending big if you want better for your baby. Otherwise stick to your budget.

3. Graco Roomfor2 Click Connect Stand and Ride Stroller

Perhaps it is a little unbelievable that this baby stroller would be maneuverable given that it can hold up to 50 pounds, but there you have it and it is not my word; straight from the consumers’ mouth. It has a greater suitability for even terrains such as those in paved towns because its wheels are small. If you choose though, you can lock the fore wheels via the suspension to meet greater stability and straight unhindered movement. One more thing that makes it stand out among competitors is the fact that it can be folded just by one hand and once done the stroller stays safely closed.

For parents who may be living in the countryside or reside in towns but love to take an adventure, you occasionally find yourself in places with very uneven terrain. You don’t have to worry any more about moving along with your baby. The Kolcraft Cloud Plus Lightweight Stroller is made for people like you and is more than equal; to the task. With its double wheels at the front it does not shy from graveled paths. Moreover you can push it in any direction.

It is Justas good as the shopping cart. That you can open/ close that machine with one hand makes it more portable too. If only the wheels were made of rubber they would have more traction and durability but unfortunately they are made of plastic. You also might want to consider safe storage for the machine since it has been reported to spring open at times.

Review Based on Price

1. UPPA baby 2017 Vista Stroller UPPA

The fact that the UPPA baby 2017 Vista Stroller UPPA baby is of superior design and quality cannot be doubted, the challenge is that it will upset your pocket by not less than $700  for a very basic model. More advanced models with extra features will even cost more. One advantage it has over several of its competitors is that it offers all that you need for a first child and allows you to expand it as the family grows. Two incidents of frame failures were reported during our survey but these seemed like isolated cases.

2. BOB Revolution Flex Stroller

Though its price may be beyond the reach of a number of people at above $400, those who have tried the product do not regret that they spent that much money on it given its premium features. After all it is a high end product that is intended to serve for years. The shock absorbers are not a feature that is easily found in low-end strollers so it makes the price of the machine count. Also almost every exposed part is the stroller has a padding which safeguards both parent and child. For all these features the price is justifiable.

3. Graco Roomfor2 Click Connect Stand and Ride Stroller

After paying just about 104 dollars for this device you get value for your money. It comes along with a number of features that many manufactures would ask a higher price for. The fact that it is shipped unassembled is a non-issue because you can accomplish that without the use of any tools in just 20 -30 minutes. Very few durability issues have been reported with this machine although many users wish the space between the recliner and the bench was larger.

Users also report that the canopy can cause a bit of nuisance too. All in all Graco Roomfor2 still gives value for money.

4. Britax 2017 B-Agile and B-Safe Travel System

Retailing for a high of about $400 the Britax B-Agile Travel System is another one from the list of pricey baby strollers. The beauty of it is its extreme maneuverability and portability given its one hand fold mechanism. Other highlights include its safety harnessers and head pad which has reflective binding. Its steering is also one of the easiest. On the negative side, some users have a little problem loading and offloading the product from small vehicles given it has a little more bulk than most strollers.

5. Kolcraft Cloud Plus Lightweight Stroller

This is the one baby stroller on our shortlist that you can obtain without any hassle. At only 89 dollars, it is specifically designed for travel. This explains why it may lack extra comfort features and features required for outdoor use such as jogging. You can spare it for road trips and vacations where you do not need a full size stroller. It may not last long if it’s used on a daily basis but is a dependable partner for doing your walk to the park or around your house.
