When I started shopping for a stroller, I purchased the cheapest one that worked with my car seat and called it a day. To no one’s surprise, that stroller is terrible, and both my child and I hated using it.
A good stroller, it turns out, goes a long way for you and your little one’s enjoyment while going for a walk, running errands, or just lugging them from one location to the next. When your kid is small, safely using a stroller requires car seat adapters or the right bassinet-style attachment. Then, they get bigger, and so does all the stuff you have to carry around. But if the wheels don’t work or something breaks? I don’t know about you, but I’m going home.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed with all the options and scared off by the sticker shock. After a bad experience with a cheap stroller, I’m here to tell you it’s worth investing in a great one. After months of testing by two different parents, these 10 strollers are all fantastic and cover a wide range of styles and budgets.
