Baby strollers are essential gears and they come in various forms, sizes and functions. What makes one stroller $200 and another priced over $1,000? Several factors actually; design, functionality and materials. However the key is how you will use it, and selecting one that fits your budget.
An all-in-one travel system consists of an infant car seat, a car-seat base, and a stroller. This type of stroller is popular with new parents because it comes complete with the car seat and base. Though the travel system is much heavier and costs more than a regular stroller frame, it may be of a better value as it gives you the flexibility to switch out the seats once the baby outgrows the infant seat.
A five-point harness is standard safety feature with most strollers of today.
When selecting your stroller, look for a sticker showing that the manufacturer takes part in the certification program administered by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA). This indicates some key tests done for the stroller’s stability, brakes, restraint system, locking mechanisms among others.
