Full Size Strollers
Looking for a stroller that you can use from birth until toddlerhood? A full size stroller may be for you! These strollers often have all of the features anyone could ever want in a stroller, such as a reclining seat, footrest, cup holders, and ample storage. Certain full size strollers can convert into a double or even triple stroller, making them ideal for growing families or daycare providers. Some come with a bassinet that can click into place for strolling with a newborn, while others include car-seat adaptors, the option to add an extra seat, and/or a glider board for an older child to stand on.
Do you have twins or children close in age? Many double strollers have two identical, side-by-side toddler seats, while others have movable seats that can accommodate various combinations of toddler seats, infant car seats, and bassinets. The benefit of the typical side-by-side configuration is that siblings can talk to and entertain each other, and the wide weight distribution makes these strollers easier to turn than a convertible stroller. While most double strollers can fit through doorways and on sidewalks, their width makes them larger and less compact than most strollers.
If you’re constantly on the go, have older babies or children, and need a stroller that folds down small, a lightweight stroller is for you. These compact strollers, which include umbrella strollers, can be half the weight of a full size stroller and are easy to stash while traveling, whether it be on public transportation, a plane, or a road trip. They tend to be less expensive, making them a great secondary stroller for travel or a primary stroller for those who only need to use it occasionally.
For active parents, jogging strollers are a worthy investment as they can allow you to take your child along for outdoor adventures and exercise. These are typically three-wheeled strollers with air-filled tires for suspension, maneuverability at higher speeds, and a smooth ride on off-road terrain such as gravel paths. If you’re a runner looking to work out with your baby into their toddler years and beyond, a jogging stroller can also double as an everyday stroller.
Do you like the idea of a stroller you can click your baby’s car seat into and get rolling? A travel system allows for a secure and seamless integration of an infant car seat with a stroller (usually full size). This makes travel systems among the most sought-after baby items, as they’re incredibly versatile and geared toward use with younger babies. Some options are sold as a stroller/infant car seat combo, while others are sold separately so that you can choose your stroller, car seat, and compatible car seat adapter. Once the baby outgrows the infant car seat, they can use the toddler seat that comes standard with the stroller.
Many strollers pair with car seats made by various brands. If you’re curious about car-seat compatibility with different strollers, reach out to a Curated Expert!
Stroller Wagons and Trikes
For a more casual mode of transportation, a pull-along stroller wagon or trike you can push can be a great way for you and your little one to explore the town, neighborhood, or even driveway. Need a way to get your kiddos and necessities to the beach? Certain wagons have extra-large wheels and a smooth turning radius for all-terrain mobility: on sand, grass, mud, rocks, and even snow!
To make the ride interactive for your child, a three-wheeled trike is a fun way to push them into motion while they drive (or think they’re driving) by holding onto the handlebars. Some offer four ways to ride: as an infant trike, steering trike, learn-to-ride trike, and classic trike. Many wagons and trikes have sun canopies to shade your little one and fold for easy packing.
Many strollers give you options to accessorize and add on as needed. Accessories include add-on standing boards and seats for growing families, covers and buntings for protecting babies from the elements year-round, cup holders, trays, bars, organizing pouches for keeping things contained, liners for a fresh and easy-to-clean space, and travel bags for protecting the stroller during transit. Interested in an accessory and wondering if it’s compatible with a specific stroller? Consult an Expert who can help you find out!
