Parents are busy people. You want to spend time with your children, and you don’t need to waste family time dealing with poorly-made products and lousy customer service. Shopping for strollers, car seats, and all the other baby gear you’ll need can be a real hassle. There are hundreds of options available, at all sorts of prices. It’s hard to know where to start looking. That’s where we come in! We’ve evaluated lots of strollers and carseats available online based on what’s important to you. Our recommendations are rated on safety, convenience, overall quality and customer satisfaction.
We’ve compared the features and specifications of each product, and break them down to show you exactly how these features can benefit you. Then, we’ve read through hundreds of online reviews, and consolidated them to give you a solid overview of what previous buyers are saying. After all, there’s no better way to be sure about a stroller or travel system than seeing testimonials from fellow parents!
Generally, you’ll need two products: a stroller and a car seat. There are hybrid “travel systems” available as well. They included a car seat and stroller which are designed to be compatible with each other. See our handy guide to those HERE. While you’ll want to have the same overall principles in mind (safety, quality, durability) for both strollers and car seats, we’ve also given you a couple key features to look for while shopping for each.
Our car seat reviews are divided in two main categories, rear-facing seats and convertible car seats. You’ll want to check that the car seat in question is compatible with your car, and any other cars which you might be using.
There are lots of options out there for strollers. We’ve broken them down into some categories based on lifestyle. Active parents will want to look at our selections for jogger strollers and all-terrain models for outdoor adventures. We’ve also looked at umbrella, travel, and lightweight strollers for ultimate convenience and portability. And, of course, we’ve found double stroller options in all of these categories! There’s a lot to consider, so we’ve provided some helpful hints for you to find the most appropriate option for you.
All of our pages follow a similar format. You’ll see a main chart with our top three picks and a quick glance at price and features at the top of the page. Then, you can click on whichever model most interests you and scroll down to see our full review. As a general rule, we’ll have picked a winner for Best On A Budget, Best Quality/Rating, and Most Popular.
And remember, if you don’t see quite what you’re looking for in our recommendations, you can still take our guides to What to Look For along for your own shopping.
