These days babies ride in style with prices for strollers topping $700.
Consumer Reports recently tested almost 30 strollers and says it isn't necessary to blow junior's college tuition on his first set of wheels.
To a parent on the go, a good stroller can make all the difference and everyone has certain priorities.
Consumer Reports just tested more than two-dozen strollers, including ones from Graco, MaClaren, and safety first to find the best.
The stokke xplory and the bugaboo frog led the pack in price. Each costs more than $700.
Testers checked durability. They simulate 25 miles of pushing on a machine like this.
All the strollers performed well in these tests, with no broken parts or excessive wear and tear.
The pricey rides had drawbacks. The $730 bugaboo frog has no tray. And it's hardly convenient...you have to remove the seat before you fold it up. And collapsing the frame can be challenging. Then when you're done... You're left with two bulky pieces. Testers found the $750 stokke xplory was bulky and heavy. It also has no tray.
In the end, Consumer Reports found you don't have to pay top dollar to ride in style. The $100 Graco quattro tour, rated excellent outperforming all the high priced strollers tested.
If you have twins or two stroller age kids Consumer Reports recommends the Maclaren rally twin, which costs $280. Testers found it's so easy to push and feels like a regular stroller.
