After testing a lot of products, we have selected the 8 best strollers between $100 and $300 for 2018 which are mentioned below. In our experiments, we have found these products most consistent in performance and true value for the money.
Safety 1st Smooth Ride
The Safety 1st Smooth Ride travel system is widely regarded as one of the easiest stroller travel systems to open and ticks all the boxes as far as inclusions go. You truly get the full package here with the onboard35 infant car seat, the stay in car base unit and of course the famous and unique “Smooth Ride” stroller. Not only does this great little travel system offer you everything you could need as a new parent, it does it all at a fantastic price too.
The Smooth Ride Travel system is ideal for… any young family with a newborn. The Onboard35 infant car seat is suitable from 4 up to a healthy 35 pounds and the large and comfortable stroller can comfortably and most importantly, safely carry your little one until they reach 50 pounds.
When we did the full seat reviews, we definitely believe the Safety 1st Smooth Ride travel system is one of the best value travel systems available today. For around the $200 mark there are very few systems that will come with a base unit, an infant car seat and a stroller. Not only is it great value but it is also a great quality little system too. The stroller is super easy to use, comfortable and best of all has the 5 point harness for safety that we love.
Evenflo Vive Travel System with Embrace
The greatest perk to a travel system is that they are compatible with each other. This means that when you have a sleeping newborn in the car, you can unhook the car seat from the base, and then connect it with the stroller. Then, you can go shopping or go for a walk without having to wake your sleeping baby.
The Evenflo Vive Travel System… allows for the car seat to easily hook into the stroller. Owning this travel system means that you can push around your infant in the car seat or use the stroller individually. The car seat that comes with the Evenflo Vive Travel System features a five-point-harness which has multiple levels of adjustment to accommodate your growing baby.
Most infant car seats have a weight limit of 22-25 pounds. The car seat that comes with the Evenflo Vive Travel System has a weight limit of 35 pounds. This means that your baby can remain rear-facing for longer, which is the safest position in a car. This also means that your baby can still use the car seat well past their first birthday. Other infant car seats are often outgrown by their first birthday or earlier.
Baby Trend Sit N Stand Double
The Baby Trend Sit N’ Stand is a tandem stroller that accepts two infant car seats. The standard configuration of the stroller has two regular seats and also works with a younger child sitting in the front while an older child can sit or stand on the back. This stroller has a covered parent tray with dual cupholders, 5-point harnesses, child’s tray with cup holder, and a foot activated rear brake.
The wheels and tires on this stroller are… plastic with a dual front wheel design we aren’t fans of. It is hard to push, but the pushing gets a harder the more weight you put inside. The frame flexes when it’s weighed down, and it makes the stroller feel like it might fold up on itself.
The Baby Trend Sit N’ Stand is a cheap looking stroller that feels flimsy when you use this. This product manages to check some boxes of key features parents want, but it fails to deliver those features in a way that truly provides exceptional or even adequate performance.
Costzon Baby Stroller 2 in 1 Foldable Infant Buggy Pushchair
The Costzon Foldable Baby Stroller is a great product and very easy to put together. Light weight and compact, this stroller is adjustable to a flat position and can be used it in pram mode for a newborn or in case the baby wants to sleep or rest.
The recline option as well as… the folding foot bar give a great comfortable position for the baby. The storage underneath is impressively large and when folded it does not occupy a lot of space.
The material is non-toxic and breathable. The comfortable seat with safety belt equipped is ideal for babies to wonder, sleep and rest. The lockable wheels are safe and convenient for adults to use. It does not have adjustable handlebar, therefore cannot adjust the height of the handlebars, but it would be perfect for someone who is 5’5″ and under.
Disney Amble Quad Travel System, Garden Delight Minnie
Make every outing a little brighter with the Disney Baby Amble Quad Travel System – Garden Delight Minnie. A complete on-the-go set, this travel system includes a stroller, infant car seat, and stay-in-car adjustable car seat base. The stroller offers a one-hand, one-motion, one-step fold and the ability to stand upright on its own when folded. It has a 5-point safety harness for use with babies, and the harness converts to a 3-point harness as your baby grows.
The stroller has a 50 lb. weight capacity, an adjustable canopy… with a mesh peek-a-boo window, a footrest for baby, and a large storage basket. There’s an easy-open and removable tray for baby and a tray for parents with cup holders and storage. Quad front wheels offer greater maneuverability. The infant car seat is designed for newborns weighing as little as 4 lbs and infants up to 22 lbs. It offers a 5-point harness and is LATCH-equipped with LATCH storage.
JOOVY Twin Groove Ultralight Umbrella Stroller
Heading out with multiple young children can be quite the challenge. Whether spending the day at the park or taking a vacation, there are never enough hands on deck. Last year, we headed for a visit to Disney World as well as a short cruise. Without our double stroller, we would have been lost! However, not all double strollers are equal. Honestly, the one we took with us wasn’t that great.
It pushed terribly hard,… had no storage, and no recline. Spoiler alert – the Joovy Twin Groove Ultralight has been much better. It would have been a great stroller for us to have while traveling to Disney with young kids. Let me tell you all about the features I love on this double stroller.
Summer Infant 3D-one Convenience Stroller
When I think of strollers, I picture either the large, clunky, traditional strollers or the small, flimsy umbrella strollers of the world. So when I got this one as a gift, I didn’t think I would like it because it didn’t fit either of my preconceived notions about what a stroller should look and be like.
Boy was I in for a surprise!… The 3D-one has been amazing because it’s given us the best of both worlds: It has the versatility and ease of use you get with an umbrella stroller, plus the key features you want in a traditional stroller.
For starters, the smooth glide front wheels provide a super-smooth ride. I’ve been using the stroller for about two months now and my 13-month-old daughter Eleanor is always psyched to head out for a walk and never seems to get bounced around or feel any bumps in the road. I can also easily adjust her seat angle using side latches located behind the seat.
Disney Baby Minnie Mouse Lift & Stroll Plus Travel System
Designed with you and your little one in mind, the Cosco Lift & Stroll Plus Travel System makes travelling in and out of a car a breeze. Combo includes a stroller and infant car seat for easy on-the-go convenience from infancy to the toddler years.
