Set up by consumers for consumers, CHOICE is the consumer advocate that provides Australians with information and advice, free from commercial bias.
As vital today as when we were founded in 1959, CHOICE continues to fight for consumers and uncover the truth.
By mobilising Australia’s largest and loudest consumer movement, CHOICE fights to hold industry and government accountable and achieve real change on the issues that matter most.
CHOICE doesn't accept advertising or sponsorship. This means we can uncover the truth about everyday consumer issues and provide practical advice to help consumers cut through the crap.
CHOICE is Australia's largest source of expert reviews. Based on unbiased analysis and rigorous testing, we help consumers compare products and services and select what’s best for them.
It can be hard to choose a good stroller. You can check that it’s light and manoeuvrable, has an adjustable handle, easy-to-use brakes, a five-point harness and so on, but how can you be sure that it’s safe and durable?
All the strollers we test are bought in retail stores and brought back to our lab for a thorough test. We assess how easy they are to use by loading them with a test weight and pushing them over footpaths, through doors, up and down stairs. We check if they’re hard to fold and unfold, whether they’re heavy and awkward to carry, and how easily they fit into a car boot.
Then the durability testing begins. The strollers have to survive 64 hours on our rolling road rig. They also get a thorough workout on our kerb mounting rig to test the strength of their handles and frames.
The end result? Clear, unbiased advice on choosing a stroller that’s both safe and easy to use.

Please note: this information was current as of August 2007 but is still a useful guide to today's market.
