We recommend models with a CHOICE Expert Rating of 70% or more, and that meet all safety requirements.

CHOICE Expert Rating View more details.

This overall score combines performance (70%) and ease of use (30%). Our test is based on the voluntary Australian standard, AS/NZS 2008:2013 which goes beyond mandatory requirements. Recommended strollers meet all safety requirements. Some models in the 60–69% range are worth considering if they meet all key safety requirements but fail some minor points (such as finger entrapment hazards). Models we don't recommend have at least one serious safety failure.

Performance score View more details.

Our performance score is based on selected tests to the Australian Standard, AS/NZS 2088, and looks at stability and harness safety as well as mandatory aspects.

Overall ease of use score View more details.

We rate seat recline functions, using the harness, loading and unloading the basket, using the brakes and manoeuvring. We fold and unfold the strollers, push them over rough terrain, up and down stairs and through doorways, and see how well they fit into a car boot. Overall ease of use is an average of all the scores.

Ease of adjusting score View more details.

How easy it is to adjust the harness, buckles and seat/backrest positions.

Ease of loading/unloading basket score View more details.

Ease of manoeuvring score View more details.

Passed key safety tests View more details.

Based on the Australian standard for strollers, AS/NZS 2088:2013. We check if the harness straps are safe; the child is securely restrained; folding mechanisms are safe and secure; and there are no possible entrapment points for heads, fingers or limbs. We also test the stability of the stroller and that the brakes work well.

Passed durability tests View more details.

Durability tests are based on Australian standards. All the strollers are attached to a machine that continuously simulates the action of mounting a kerb. New brands are placed on our 'rolling road' rig for 64 hours at a speed of 5km/h. These tests show whether anything breaks, falls off or stops working properly after regular use.

Year tested View more details.

We continually test strollers and add results to our database. We retest popular models after some years to make sure they're still safe, or to check if manufacturers have made improvements.
