Bugaboo Bee PlusGetting your toddler from point A to point B in any given situation can be rife with challenges no matter what, but starting with the right stroller can at least help.
However, what one mom considers the best stroller ever, doesn't always work in another mom's world. It's all about finding one that works for you and your lifestyle. Here are five strollers to consider for five different types of moms.
Bugaboo was one of the first ultra-expensive strollers to hit mainstream mamas. The Bugaboo Bee Plus is a smaller, lighter version of the original Frog. Its coolest feature is a seat that can be swiveled around, so your child can face forward or backward (a nice diversion at times!).
At $649, the Bee is still definitely an investment, and a better one if you have a smaller child, since it only accommodates one up to 37.5 pounds. But if you want your stroller to scream "I'm a hip, happenin' mom!" this is the ride for your child.
BOB RevolutionSporty Mom
When it comes to jogging strollers, BOB is the big name in the game, specifically, the BOB Revolution. I've never met a running mom who didn't swear by hers or covet one of her own. They're expensive, but wow do they handle well. Joggingstroller.com says it‘s the "reigning champion of swivel wheel strollers".
"We cannot recommend this stroller enough; it is truly Revolutionary," the site states.
UPPA Baby G-LiteMom on the Go
If you're constantly folding and unfolding your stroller and need something light and easy to maneuver, but not flimsy, check out the UPPA Baby G-Lite stroller. At only 8.3 pounds, it's a great fit for moms in the city or those who travel a lot. Around $100, it's more expensive than most umbrella strollers, but it also offers more substance and room than them as well.
Graco SpreeMom on a Budget
The Graco Spree Stroller offers all the sturdiness of a full-sized stroller, but at just $89, it's less than half the price of others. It's one of the most frequently purchased at Target.com, and reviews are overwhelmingly positive. "This stroller is excellent, especially for the price we paid!" stated one reviewer. "It's more lightweight than many Graco strollers and it truly folds up with the use of just one hand."
Baby Trend Sit N Stand
Trying to move one child is hard enough, but it gets even trickier when there are two or more. I love the Baby Trend Sit N Stand Stroller, especially if you have two children with a bit of an age gap (like me). The younger child can be securely strapped in while the older child can choose to sit or stand on the back. Some lament that the front seat doesn't recline enough or that it doesn't fold up flat enough, but most say it's a great alternative to a bulky side-by-side double stroller, especially for the price -- $129.99.
Which stroller do you use? Have you tried any of these?
