Best Strollers of 2024 | Top Rated Strollers | Popular Brands

Every new parent wants the best for their baby, especially when it comes to key gear pieces like a stroller—the daily vehicle your family will rely on for years to come.

But giving one product the title of "best stroller" is as difficult as choosing a single best car from a diverse lineup of convertibles, pickup trucks and minivans.

Just like cars, every stroller is the best choice for some families, depending on criteria like lifestyle, budget and travel habits. In this post, we'll review the best strollers of 2024 in a variety of categories. 

Best Rated Strollers

Yes, every stroller is the best for someone—but which are the best of the best strollers? Let's start with the opinions of the experts (and Strolleria customers).

Best Stroller Rankings

While the internet is flooded with stroller reviews, a couple of favorites clearly emerge from rankings of best strollers.

The fast-folding and all-terrain Baby Jogger City Mini GT 2 is popular choice—while the more versatile UPPAbaby Vista V2 is a top pick at a higher price point.

Here's a sampling of best stroller rankings from the most authoritative websites, like Baby Gear Lab, which conducts scientific testing; What to Expect, a leading site for new and expectant parents; and Good Housekeeping, a magazine that readers go to for expert advise on every day products.

Best Strollers for Newborns

When you purchase a stroller for your newborn, you won't necessarily need to buy another stroller when she's a toddler.

Almost all strollers can be used with a newborn when you attach an infant car seat (see the next section for the best stroller/car seat "travel systems.") And most strollers can also grow with your child from birth until they reach 40 or 50 pounds in toddlerhood—or, more likely, until they don't want to sit in a stroller anymore.

That said, some strollers stand out as best for newborns.

The UPPAbaby Vista V2 and Bugaboo Fox5 are among the strollers that offer a bassinet included with purchase (for other strollers, a bassinet is an option sold separately). A bassinet allows your baby to lie flat in the safest and most comfortable position and can be used for overnight sleeping, sparing parents of the need for a separate bedside bassinet or travel cot.

Strollers like the Nuna MIXX Next, Silver Cross Dune, and Bumbleride Era offer a lie-flat seat that allow you to place your newborn directly in the stroller, no car seat or bassinet required. Many stroller seats aren't suitable for newborns because the seat is slightly angled, and some also have a footwell that elevates the child's legs when reclined.

A unique newborn option is the Doona, the only car seat with foldable legs that instantly transforms the product into a stroller. But unlike other options, you'll need to purchase a new stroller when your baby outgrows the Doona around age 1.

The best newborn strollers include:

    Best Stroller Travel Systems

    Most new parents want the convenience of a "travel system," or a car seat and stroller that work together as a set. When baby falls asleep in the car, simply click the car seat into your stroller—with no fuss and no waking the baby.

    Nearly all strollers can become a travel system, even in cases in which stroller brands don't manufacture their own car seats. Car seat adapters allow you to mix and match brands. See our Car Seat Compatibility Guide to learn which car seats fit your stroller. If you already have a car seat in mind, see our Stroller Compatibility Guide to find strollers to match.

    Here's a look at travel systems from manufacturers that produce matching stroller and car seat sets. In these cases, adapters are either not required, or the adapters are included with purchase.

    Best Strollers for an Infant and Toddler

    In preparing for your first child, you might actually want to consider Baby #2.

    Because most kids use a stroller until age 3 or older, many families need a stroller that can fit both an infant and a toddler.

    Convertible strollers can expand from a single to double, providing versatility as the needs of your family change. You can purchase a convertible stroller for your first child and add a second seat when a sibling comes along, then remove the second seat later on when your toddler would rather walk than ride. 

    Most convertible strollers—like the UPPAbaby Vista V2, Baby Jogger City Select 2, Peg Perego YPSI, and Cybex Gazelle S—offer tandem seating, with one child positioned in front of the other. Tandem strollers provide dozens of possible configurations, allowing your kids to face you, face forward or sit-back-to-back, whether your newborn is in a car seat, bassinet or the stroller seat.

    The Nuna DEMI Next and Bugaboo Donkey5 offer variations on the convertible stroller. Instead of tandem seats, the Demi Grow seats are stacked, which reduces the stroller's length and aids maneuverability. And the Donkey is the only stroller that expands to a side-by-side double, offering more leg room and an even weight distribution for better handling.

    See this post and video for more than a dozen single-to-double stroller options. The best convertible strollers for an infant and toddler include:

    Best Strollers for Twins

    Convertible strollers that are popular for siblings (as described in the previous section) also work well for twins.

    One consideration: Some tandem strollers, like the UPPAbaby Vista V2, feature a lower seat that's smaller than the upper seat, with a reduced weight limit. While that design may not be a concern for a parent of a newborn and toddler, twin parents may find that one child will outgrow the stroller at a time when both kids still need it. However, in early 2024, UPPAbaby released a new second seat called the RumbleSeat V2+ that's larger and holds up to 40 pounds now!

    Convertible strollers like the Nuna DEMI Next, Baby Jogger City Select 2 and Peg Perego YPSI are among the few with identical seats for two kids of the same age, with each seat holding 45-50 pounds.

    Twin parents often prefer a side-by-side stroller that provides equal access to both kids, but many side-by-sides only offer the ability to hold one car seat or bassinet. The Bumbleride Indie Twin and the Bugaboo Donkey are among the exceptions that can fit two infant car seats or two bassinets.

    Best Strollers for Travel

    best travel strollers of 2021

    The best travel strollers aren't typically the ones you use for long walks and outings to the zoo. While everyday strollers have more features and storage space, they tend to be heavy and bulky for lugging through an airport.

    Many parents end up with a secondary stroller that's more compact to bring on a plane or keep in your car.

    Strollers like the Babyzen YOYO2, Joolz Aer+, Cybex Libelle 2, and Silver Cross Jet are small enough when folded to be considered a carry-on, sparing them from possible gate-check damage.

    Plus, the Babyzen YOYO2 has the added bonus of converting to a double with purchase of the Connect accessory, a second frame that attaches to the back of the stroller.

    While slightly less compact, the Bugaboo ButterflyNuna TRVL and UPPAbaby Minu V2 fold quickly with one hand (and, in the case of the TRVL, automatically after pressing the folding button).

    See our Best Travel Strollers post and video for an in-depth look.

    Best Lightweight Strollers

    See the previous section for the lightest and most compact strollers best for travel.

    Looking for a stroller that's lightweight—yet still sturdy, roomy and versatile enough for everyday life?

    Strollers like the Baby Jogger City Mini GT 2 and Thule Spring fall in between a tiny travel stroller (weighing less than 15 pounds) and an everyday stroller (typically weighing 25-30 pounds).

    Compared with a smaller travel stroller, options like the Nuna TRIV Next, Bugaboo Dragonfly, and Cybex Mios3 have larger wheels for smoother handling, a roomier seat, and added features like a reversible seat that allows your child to face you or face forward.

    Weighing around 20 pounds, the best lightweight everyday strollers include:

    Best Strollers for Jogging

    With their large, air-filled tires, a jogging stroller might be best for your needs, whether you're looking to run a marathon or hit a hiking trail. 

    Your jogging stroller can also be an everyday stroller, though they tend to be the heaviest and bulkiest type of stroller. Most can accommodate an infant car seat for use from birth (although running isn't recommended until later on). The Bumbleride Indie offers a smaller footprint and a full lay-flat position for use with a newborn.

    For more serious runners, options like the BOB Alterrain Pro and Thule Urban Glide include a hand brake for added control, while the Bumbleride Speed offers three front wheel positions for greater maneuverability while running.

    The UPPAbaby Ridge differs from other jogging strollers in that its heavy-duty rubber tires are filled with foam instead of air, ensuring you'll never experience a mid-run flat tire.

    The best strollers for jogging include:

    Best Strollers for Rough Terrain

    best all terrain strollers 2021

    Jogging strollers are also the best strollers for maneuverability on sand, snow and gravel roads, considering they have the largest and toughest tires on any stroller you'll find. See the previous section for a roundup of the best jogging strollers.

    But jogging strollers are also among the heaviest strollers, and they often lack some of the features parents are looking for, like a reversible seat, a compact fold, the ability to convert to a double stroller—and a look that's more stylish than sporty.

    Strollers like the Bugaboo Fox5 have robust suspension built into both the wheels and the frame for a bump-free ride over varied terrain, while the Nuna DEMI Next offers dual-action suspension, allowing you to customize the ride for smooth and rough surfaces.

    The Bumbleride Era is a rare everyday stroller that has air-filled tires, rather than rubber or plastic wheels, which help to absorb shock and soften the ride. Yet the tires aren't as large as those on joggers, making it less cumbersome for errands around town and trips in and out of the car.

    The Cybex e-Priam is the only electric-powered stroller, with a rechargeable battery that gives you an extra boost if you're pushing the stroller uphill or navigating over sand, snow and rocks.

    Veer's products are built for outdoor adventures, with large, rugged wheels for tackling tough terrain. The shock-absorbing Veer Switchback seat fits either the Switch&Roll four-wheeled stroller frame and Switch&Jog three-wheeled jogger frame. And the Veer Cruiser wagon can outmaneuver many strollers while offering the ability to hold two kids and your entire family's stuff.

    In addition to jogging strollers, the best strollers for rough terrain include:

    Best High-End Strollers

    Looking for the best stroller money can buy? The best luxury strollers include customizable options for a look all your own, an electric stroller that helps you do the pushing, and even strollers fit for a future king.

    Strollers like the Fox and the Mima Xari can be customized to your own unique aesthetic, with the latter allowing for a choice of leatherette seat, fabrics and frame color.

    The Bugaboo Donkey5 and Silver Cross Wave allow the whole family to ride in style, converting from a single to a double to even a ride for three if you add a glider board. 

    And if you're willing to pay for an extra push, the Cybex e-Priam is the only electric stroller that helps you motor up hills and over rough terrain—while looking fashionable, too, thanks to a number of customized and limited-edition fabrics.

    The best high-end strollers include: 

    Best Strollers for Tall Parents

    Finding the right stroller can be tough if you're tall: with smaller strollers, your baby feels far away, the handlebar is out of reach, and your long stride may clip the back of the frame.

    Jogging strollers are among the best strollers for tall parents: Instead of a telescoping handlebar that slides up or down, options like the UPPAbaby Ridge and BOB Alterrain Pro have rotating handles that tilts up or down for a greater range of height options.

    The seats of the Nuna MIXX Next and Stokke Xplory sit higher than other strollers, and the Xplory's seat is also height-adjustable on the frame to bring baby closer. Plus, the rear axle of the Xplory is raised, making it easier for tall parents to walk freely.

    See below for handlebar heights for options among the best strollers for tall parents.


    Best Strollers with Big Storage Baskets

    A tiny person needs a lot of stuff, making ample storage space one of the top features parents are seeking in a stroller.

    Strollers with the biggest storage baskets include the Bumbleride IndieBugaboo Donkey and UPPAbaby Vista. As a single stroller, the Bugaboo Donkey has two baskets: the underseat basket, as well as a side luggage basket next to the stroller seat (which you'll remove when expanding the Donkey to a double stroller).

    The Cybex Gazelle S comes with a shopping basket that doubles the stroller's capacity when added to the upper position, while other strollers allow for add-on storage space with accessories sold separately. The Veer Cruiser has a foldable storage basket, while the UPPAbaby Changing Backpack fastens to the handlebars of the Vista, Cruz or Minu strollers.

    Looking to stash your stuff on the run? The BOB Alterrain Pro and Thule Urban Glide have a zippered underseat storage basket to keep your belongings secure.

    Best Strollers with Large Sun Canopies

    A stroller protects your child from the sun when you're on the go—some better than others.

    Nuna strollers have oversized sun canopies providing almost complete coverage of the seat, and the Nuna DEMI Next comes with two interchangeable canopy options: a Classic canopy, plus an Aire Protect canopy with side ventilation and a built-in sun/bug cover. Plus, Nuna strollers also have a removable seat insert that reveals a mesh backing for summertime strolls.

    Bugaboo strollers including the Fox5, the Cybex Priam and UPPAbaby Vista V2 and Cruz V2 have generous, ventilated sun canopies with a zippered canopy fabric extension that provides extra coverage.

    And the Stokke Xplory includes a large fabric sunshade that can stretch from the canopy all the way to the handle of the stroller to keep your child fully covered.

    The best strollers with large sun canopies include:

    Best Strollers with Glider Boards

    Have an older child who wants to walk most—but not all—of the time? Consider a stroller with a glider board, an accessory that connects to the back of the stroller and allows your child to stand and hold on for the ride.

    The ride-along boards for the Babyzen YOYO2, Joolz Aer+ and Bugaboo strollers like the Bugaboo Fox5 include a small bicycle seat that allow a tired toddler to rest her legs, while boards for the UPPAbaby Vista V2 and Cruz V2 have the added cool factor of looking like a real skateboard. The Nuna DEMI Next even comes with a board that can be used when the stroller is in single mode!

    If you're taking three kids along for the ride, most tandem double strollers offer a standing board attachment, but the Bumbleride Indie Twin is one of the few side-by-side double strollers that can accommodate a third child on a ride-on board, too.

    The best strollers with glider boards include:
