The Babystyle Oyster is the most popular pushchair

Thousands of parents check out our pushchair reviews every month. Here, we reveal the buggies and prams that got the most mums and dads clicking in the last three months. 

Pushchairs by Quinny, Bugaboo and iCandy all made it into the top 10, alongside own-brand buggies from Mothercare and Mamas & Papas. But several big names - including Maclaren, Silver Cross and Graco - failed to make it onto the most popular list in the last three months of 2013.

Of course, popularity doesn't necessarily mean quality. To find out which are the best and worst pushchairs we’ve tested, check out our pushchair reviews

Best and worst pushchairs

The Babystyle Oyster may have the most clicked-on review on our website, but that doesn’t mean it’s the best buggy we've tested.

Which? pushchair expert Lisa Galliers says: 'Getting your pushchair purchase right is really important. You'll be using it day in and day out and even a small thing, like a stiff brake or fiddly harness, will become really annoying when you're grappling with it every day.'

At Which?, we put pushchairs through tough lab tests, assessing how safe they are as well as how well they adapt to different ground surfaces. We also get parents with children aged between six and 36 months to try out each of the pushchairs and tackle our pushchair obstacle course - so that they can tell us how easy the buggies are to use in real life. This enables us to give each pushchair a total score and name the top scorers as Best Buy pushchairs.
