Best Strollers of 2019
Strollers are one of the biggest pieces of baby gear you’ll purchase—both in price and in size. A good stroller can carry your tot from babyhood all the way to young childhood, so deciding which one to purchase is a decision that deserves careful consideration and thorough research. Since Apparent offers stroller replacement in the event of an accident, we want to make sure you’re strolling in style and quality to begin with. With that in mind, here are ten of the best strollers currently on the market:
Baby Jogger City Mini
This three-wheeled compact stroller is ideal for city-dwellers. At only 18.4 pounds, the Baby Jogger City Mini is the lightest stroller on our list! The City Mini features a one-handed fold and can also be steered with one hand thanks to its pivoting front wheels. Baby Jogger offers several infant car seat adapters, so you can use this stroller from birth.
OXO Cubby Plus
You may know OXO as the brand that makes clever kitchen gadgets, but after a baby boom among the company’s employees, they started designing baby products to solve parents’ pet peeves. The Cubby Plus is a great everyday stroller, weighing in at 19 pounds. Some of its smart features include: one-handed fold and open, a huge storage basket, pockets placed throughout, a sandal-friendly brake, an adjustable handlebar, a reclining seat with ventilation, and a huge canopy.
An economy modular stroller that offers features typically only available in higher-end strollers. A modular stroller allows you to change the seat to be forward or rear-facing. With the Graco Modes, you also have the option to remove the seat and use the frame with a car seat. The Modes also offers standing fold and a parent tray with two cup holders. This stroller can be purchased as a travel system with a Graco car seat, giving you more bang for your buck. At 23 pounds, this is an impressively lightweight modular stroller.
One of the best things about a Britax stroller is it can be purchased as a travel system with a Britax car seat, making it an economical choice. The B-Lively is the newest addition to the Britax lineup of strollers. It features a one-handed fold, lots of storage, and since it can be used as a travel system, it can carry your baby from birth to 55 pounds.
BOB Revolution Flex 3.0
If you’re looking for an all-terrain stroller, look no further: The BOB can roll over just about anything. This is not your everyday stroller: it’s heavy (28.5 pounds) and requires two hands to fold. It has a smaller storage basket, but if you’re in need of an all-terrain that can also function as a jogging stroller, check out this one. Parents love their BOB’s.
Baby Jogger City Select
The City Select has a lot to offer! It’s an all-terrain, convertible stroller with an impressive number of luxury features. At 29.5 pounds, it’s far from lightweight, but it can do some serious heavy lifting. Out of the box, the City Select is a single stroller with a reversible seat, but if you need a double stroller, you have the option to attach a second seat to the City Select frame. Its frame can also be used with an infant car seat, and its Luxury features include an adjustable handlebar, a hand brake, and an additional bassinet attachment.
If you only want to buy one stroller, consider the Vista. This is possibly the most versatile combination modular and convertible stroller, weighing a mere 26.6 pounds. The Vista is a high-end, all-terrain stroller with user-friendly features such as an adjustable handlebar, curved support bar (so your feet will never run into it), and a huge storage basket. Since it can become a double, it’s also a great option for twins!
The Cruz is a smaller version of the Vista both in size (21.5 pounds) and price, and it’s a great option for an everyday stroller. Some of its best features include: a modular seat that can face forward or back, a telescoping handlebar, an easy fold, and foam wheels that make for a smooth ride.
The Qool offers many of the same features as the UPPAbaby Vista, but at a much more affordable price. It weighs a heavy 30 pounds but can pull its weight with the ability to carry up to 110 pounds! This modular stroller offers 56 configurations and can function as a single, double, or triple, and it’s compatible with infant car seats.
Ergobaby 180 Reversible
You may know Ergobaby for their baby carrier, but they make a smart stroller, too. At 20 pounds, the Reversible makes a great everyday stroller. It features an adjustable handlebar, offers a one hand fold, and is car seat compatible with an adapter. But the most impressive feature by far is the reversible handlebar, which pivots to allow you to have your baby forward or rear facing without ever moving the seat.
