It’s time to start brainstorming baby names, begin building your baby registry, and dig in on researching your dream stroller (which is like a first-time parent rite of passage)!  

Here’s the thing if there was one perfect stroller on the market, we would all have the exact same make and model. The truth is, you have a unique list of needs and wants that are different than the parents expecting down the street. 

So, today we will walk you through some of our top stroller picks of the year to help you decide which one might be best for you.  

Video Review


Getting Started 

With so many options on the market, you’ll want to get familiar with what questions to ask before you buy. We recommend checking out our Stroller Buying Guide and then reading on to decide which stroller might be best for you and your growing family!

Let's get started with a few things many of these strollers have in common: 

  • An adjustable handlebar to accommodate a variety of heights 
  • A reclining and reversible seat so that baby can face you or the world 
  • A UPF 50+ canopy 
  • Adjustable calf-support 
  • Leather details throughout (some are genuine leather while others are vegan) 

Top Single Strollers 

A single stroller is a baby carriage designed for one child. From lightweight to all-terrain options, single strollers are easy to use and offer comfort and safety for your little one while you’re out and about!   

UPPAbaby Cruz V2 

THE SPECS: 

  • Weight: 25.5 lbs. 
  • Weight Limit: 50 lbs. 
  • Last updated: 2023 

The UPPAbaby Cruz V2 stroller redefines ease and versatility for parents seeking a full-size stroller with a compact design.  

With enhanced performance, it effortlessly navigates bustling streets and uneven terrains. Equipped for newborns with the purchase of the V2 Bassinet or the included Infant SnugSeat, the Cruz V2 boasts a reversible toddler seat and a no-rethread harness for convenience.  

Offering top-of-the-line UV protection through its extendable canopy, it’s outfitted with mesh panels and a peekaboo window for comfort and airflow. The stroller's one-handed, multi-position recline feature, adjustable handlebar, and a spacious under seat basket (with a 30 lbs. weight capacity!) cater to the needs of both parents and baby. Smooth manoeuvrability is guaranteed by the all-wheel suspension and visual indicator-locked front wheels.  

UPPAbaby designed this stroller to seamlessly accommodate the Mesa V2 Infant Car Seat without adapters, allowing an easy transition from car to stroller. Luxurious full-grain leather accents add a touch of elegance to its design, while its one-step fold and ability to stand when folded offer practicality.

Nuna MIXX Next 

THE SPECS: 

  • Weight: 28.3 lbs. 
  • Weight Limit: 50 lbs. 
  • Last updated: 2022 

Next up is the Nuna MIXX Next Stroller. It has a compact fold and is packed with features that keep it functional for families but it’s also a great choice because it looks really good too! 

Parents love the no re-thread 5-point harness and self-guiding magnetic buckle for loading your squirmy little one in and out. The flip-out eye shade and all-season seat means it's great for the summertime offering baby lots of protection from the sun and lots of ventilation. 

Yes, that’s right, the fabric in the seat can be completely removed to offer up a fully ventilated back for your baby! The MIXX Next from Nuna might be a simple, single stroller, but it really does pack a lot of punch.

Bugaboo Fox 5 

THE SPECS: 

  • Weight: 22.9 lbs. 
  • Weight Limit: 50 lbs.

Say, “hello” to the Bugaboo Fox 5 Complete Stroller! 

Talk about luxury features! Bugaboo strollers are known for their smooth operation – but the Fox 5 has even more to offer than a fingertip push. 

If you’re expecting a summer baby, you’ll appreciate the impressive ventilation and “breezy panel” that surrounds the base of the included pram (bassinet) and a full coverage canopy that can be zipped out to create a cocoon suitable for napping on the go. We also love that you can change out the canopy (sold separately) to customize the look of your stroller depending on your preference. 

Other features we’re impressed by? A 50 lbs. rider limit to keep up with the competition and a must-have no re-thread harness. The Fox 5 also features an extendable footrest, a height-adjustable canopy, and one-hand adjustments to grow with your little one.

Top Single-to-Double Convertible Strollers 

A single-to-double convertible stroller starts as a single-seater and magically transforms into a double-seater when your family expands! A versatile chariot, it offers convenience, flexibility, and savings, making it a smart long-term investment for growing families.

  • Weight Limit: 50 lbs.

  • Expandable: YES!
 
  • Last updated: 2020
 

The Vista V2 has been a popular choice for parents for years. Why? It’s luxurious and easy to use for parents and grandparents alike. 

The fold is simple and the V2 is decked out with lots of great features like an included sleep-safe bassinet, use with the UPPAbaby Mesa V2 Infant Car Seat (no adapters required), and the ability to hold a second child when the time is right. We also love that the Vista can accommodate bigger kids with a 50 lbs. weight limit on the seat and a no re-thread harness and canopy that can move up and down as your little one grows.  

On top of that, it also comes with a basket that can hold up to 30 lbs., which is a great feature for those mat leave shopping trips! A full suspension system and large wheels are what allow the Vista V2 to glide easily through snow, sand, or whatever weather you encounter. 

You can customize your Vista V2 with lots of great accessories to really make the stroller work for you we’ve highlighted our favourite in the article, our Top 8 Must-Have UPPAbaby Vista Accessories so you can start shopping!

Baby Jogger City Select 2 ECO 

THE SPECS: 

  • Weight: 26.7 lbs. 
  • Weight Limit: 45 lbs. 
  • Second Seat Weight Limit: 45 lbs. 
  • Expandable: YES! 
  • Last updated: 2021 

 Baby Jogger has stepped up their game with a new aesthetic on the City Select 2 and City Select 2 ECO strollers that we absolutely love! 

The Select 2 models received an overhaul in both design and function making them roughly 20% more compact than other strollers on the market. With 24 configurations to choose from, this single stroller can be converted to a tandem double stroller for twins or when the time comes to add a second baby to your family. We love that both the included seat and the second seat can hold 45 lbs. each. While the suspension system is front-wheel only, it’s still a remarkably smooth ride when compared to their competition. 

So, what are the biggest differences between the Select 2 and Select 2 ECO 

The Select 2 ECO model is made with an earth-friendly TENCIL fabric on the canopy and seat pads. The ECO model also comes with a bumper bar that’s wrapped in a perforated leatherette fabric for a modern look and comfortable grip. You can read all about the Baby Jogger ECO Collection in this article HERE.

Bugaboo Donkey 5 

THE SPECS: 

  • Weight: 26.9 lbs. 
  • Weight Limit: 50 lbs. 
  • Second Seat Limit: 50 lbs. 
  • Expandable: YES! 
  • Last updated: 2022 

The Donkey 5 is a customizable grow-with-me option that can be used as a double or single stroller. 

When used in mono (single) mode, a convenient side storage basket lets you store goodies and essentials within arm’s reach. Its zippered top keeps valuables safe and it can also be used as a shopping bag during trips to the store. 

Want to convert it to a double stroller? You can easily make this change in three easy clicks — one on the handlebar, one on the bottom of the basket front, and one on the basket back. Then just expand the frame and add your second seat (sold separately)! 

But can you really push this stroller when it is fully loaded with TWO kids plus any items you’ve stored?  

The answer is a big Y-E-S! We credit that to the Bugaboo 1-touch smooth push which is paired with a killer set of 10” and 12” wheels that can power through any terrain. So, go ahead and picture your little ones holding hands side-by-side and taking in the world around them!
