There are so many strollers out there and frankly it’s confusing. I basically drive Jessica crazy with stroller questions and thought it was time we posted her favorites. I also include two of my picks. These are MB’s 5 favorites that through trial and error and research we feel you can rely on as a new mom looking for your first stroller or a parent searching for that next stroller to last you for many years.

The Reliable Stroller

1. iCandy Peach, Retail: $899.00 via WeeBabe  *

The iCandy is the new Bugaboo. No tire blow outs here this stroller from the UK is sleek, stylish, easy to push and is compatible with a bassinet & car seat. The storage is great regardless of the recline level your baby is at and the frame folds down easily. The best part is it can convert to a double when the time comes.

Pros: Great maneuverability, attractive, full recline, no air tires and great storage

Cons: Price is high, base is on the wide end

2. Phil &TedsVerve Stroller via Buy Buy Baby, $699.

When out of town friends visit New York , I always hear a comment that they cannot believe how older kids are still in strollers. Yes, we know non-city people but you try juggling a few kids on a busy Brooklyn street. The Phil & Ted Verve stroller is perfect for a mom looking to move to a double stroller yet does not want the bulk.

Pros: Holds up to two children, more narrow then most double strollers

Cons: Frame is heavy

The Urban Favorite

3. UppaBaby Cruz, Retail: $459.00 available at WeeBabe

The UppaBaby Cruz is a great city stroller and quite popular in our Brooklyn neighborhood- It’s lightweight which makes it  easy to maneuver and the price point is a plus. UppaBaby has a reputation for well made products and great customer service which trust us when you have stroller drama you do not want a customer rep to make you feel like just another mom but to really take in your questions and concerns . The Cruz comes in a variety of colors and perfect for taller parents.

Pros: Has all the basics covered, easy to push
Cons: Bottom seat recline, not ideal stroller for infants, lacks longevity

A Great Buy 

4. Cybex Callisto – Retails $349.00 (bassinet is extra) WeeBabe

Cybex Callisto is an everything you’ll need ever need in one stroller choice which means it will last for many years to come. It’s essentially an umbrella stroller with the capacity to hold a bassinet & car seat. It eliminates the need to buy an umbrella stroller. Its lightweight and very easy to push.

Toddler Friendly Stroller

5. Maclaren Quest Sport, $270. via diapers.com

A lightweight stroller with such features  as four-position recline, ultra-light and compact (folded) chassis, smooth steering, and those signature Maclaren high handle bars. Comfortable seating.

Pros: Padded seat , Rain-cover included, One hand fold

Con: Sun canopy not too sturdy and doesn’t fully cover baby, minimal storage which urban moms need plenty of. Wheels seem to wear out sooner then most strollers.
