At 10BabyGear, we started our research on the best baby strollers and we’ve put a lot of hours to select and rank our top 10 baby strollers you can choose from.
We created a database to collect data of 131 baby strollers on the market including some of 2021 releases. Our exhaustive list gave us baby strollers with variations in color, prices, design, folds, wheels, and brands, among others. We even analyzed the list of top 100 best-selling baby strollers in October 2019. We did this conclusive research to determine a few things that every parent should consider such as:
- Which is the best baby stroller to buy in 2021
- Who makes the best baby strollers (brands) in 2021
- What are the best baby strollers for different activities such as general traveling, air travel, jogging, and running
- What are the best baby strollers for places such as city living such as NYC and rural-area living
- What are the best baby strollers for different weather conditions such as winter, summer, fall, and spring?
- What are the best baby strollers for different age groups such as newborns, 1-year-olds, 3-years-old, and even twins?
- What are the best baby strollers for parents of different heights such as short and tall parents?
- What are the best baby strollers with any of the following; car seat, bassinet, big wheels, and carriers.
In deciding how we would narrow down our list of 131 car seats to find the best one for different situations (weather, functionalities, activities, brands, and locations, among others) we borrowed from several experts who gave us advice on how to choose the best baby stroller. Below is a video by Babylist describing how to choose the best baby stroller in 2021. If you are in a hurry, you can watch this video or jump to the buyer’s guide below the reviews.
We also reached out to about 10 mums in 10BabyGear’s Facebook and Pinterest groups and analyzed over 17,000 verified reviews on several sets of baby strollers and below are the ranking factors that enabled us to narrow down our list and to ultimately find our overall best baby stroller in the market in 2021.
- Cost: Among all the baby products we’ve reviewed here at 10BabyGear, we found baby strollers to be the most expensive. Some are as expensive as $1200 and as you pick your favorite stroller that fits you and your baby’s, consider if the higher price is worth the cost. You can find strollers for as low as $200 but make sure you also weigh the functionalities and durability. Durable strollers with great functionalities and low price scored better than its expensive peers.
- Family Size: If you want a baby stroller that can support more than one kid, you can choose from a double stroller or you can pick a single stroller that can easily be converted to a double stroller. Flexible strollers scored better than those that cannot support more than one baby.
- Functionalities: All-purpose strollers that fit city-living and suburb dwelling scored better than strollers with limited use in different locations.
- Outdoor: If you are an active parent that prefers outdoor jogging or running, we have some great strollers that are perfect for outdoor maneuvers.
