Test results for 12 four-wheel strollers from $129 to $1900
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.
