For our stroller buying guide, we researched customer ratings from multiple reliable sources and compared that information to the bestseller lists from each venue. We also look at ratings given by an organization that tested multiple baby strollers and assigned a value to each one.
We focused our research on standard baby strollers, as opposed to jogging styles or umbrella models. Only a few very popular jogging strollers were included. Most of the strollers in our buying guide are single passenger strollers, but some of the higher rated and more popular dual-seat models appear on the list.
Highest rated strollers on Amazon
Amazon customers rated three strollers higher than any other models: A Chicco Keyfit stroller, a model by Jane Rider, and a stroller from Peg Perego. Next highest rated are two strollers by BOB. A Graco model is next, followed by another BOB stroller. Rounding out the list are units by Britax, Baby Trend and another stroller from Graco.
Best-selling strollers on Amazon
The most popular stroller on Amazon is a Graco model, followed by a Chicco stroller. Next bestselling are a BOB stroller, a Britax model and a unit by UppaBaby. Another Graco stroller follows, after which are units by Britax and Baby Trend. The top ten best-selling stroller list on Amazon is rounded out with strollers by Joovy and Graco.
Highest rated strollers at Walmart
Wal-mart customers rewarded a number of strollers with very high ratings. The top of the list is claimed by a stroller by Ingenuity. Next is a model by Safety 1st. A Disney Saunter stroller and a unit from Baby Trend are next, followed by strollers by Cosco, Mia Moda, and Dream On Me. The rest of the list includes a Britax stroller and two models from Urbini.
Bestselling strollers at Wal-mart
The most popular selling stroller at Walmart is one from Baby Trend. Next is an Urbini stroller, followed by another Baby Trend model. Another stroller from Urbini is next, after which is an Evenflo unit. Two more Baby Trend strollers appear next on the bestseller list. The top ten list is finished with strollers from Cosco, Graco and Urbini.
Top ten strollers according to Babygearlab
The testers at Babygearlab awarded the highest marks to a stroller by BOB. The next highest rated stroller is a model from Uppababy. A Baby Jogger model is next, followed by a stroller from Britax. Two more Baby Jogger units follow. A Bumbleride stroller and a unit from Bugaboo appear next on the list. The last two slots are given to strollers by Baby Trend and Britax.
There is no single clear stroller model or manufacturer that stands out above the rest when looking across all sources. We recommend researching the models near the top of each list and comparing the price, features and customer ratings to get a clear idea of which stroller will work best for you. Be sure to look for any trends in customer opinions. If multiple people have the same complaint about a specific model, it is likely that will be an issue you would need to expect with that stroller.
