The best strollers you can buy
- With the right stroller, you and your young one are ready for anything, from a quick trip to the stores to a week-long overseas vacation.
- Depending on your family's activities, you may need two strollers per child.
- The Nuna DEMI Grow is our top choice because it is highly adaptable, is nimble and rugged, and folds down small for a full-sized stroller.
I have two kids (ages five-and-a-half and one-and-a-half, at time of publication), and with them, I switch between six or seven different strollers and tested even more than that since my kids were born. So, through my research and hands-on testing, I've gained a lot of insight and experience into buying strollers.
But my stroller research started way before the first kid arrived. While expecting our first child, my wife and I did exhaustive stroller research and consulting other parents and experts. Not only can strollers be expensive, but you also want to ensure they keep their little passengers safe.
In addition, we also went to stores and tested multiple strollers before selecting one. Or, to be accurate, before selecting two: You will find that having two strollers for one child is almost a necessity. And with two kids, you may end up with four or more.
Here's why you may want multiple strollers: I recommend getting one larger, rugged stroller for daily walks around the neighborhood, and one smaller, compact stroller for when you need to travel light (flying to Europe or taking the train to New York City) or easily fit into the trunk of a car.
As for longevity, it depends on how often you use it and what type of situations you put it through. A gently used stroller could be reused or passed on, while one that's been through the roughest environments may not make it past the five-year mark. Whatever your needs or use-cases may be, here are the best strollers to consider. And, after our recommendations, we provide more info on how to buy a stroller.
