Pushchair reviews

We've reviewed 180 pushchairs and every year we spend around £70,000 testing new pushchairs. We assess:

  • Safety and durability - including a pushchair's strength and stability and the quality of its brakes
  • How easy it is to use - including folding and pushing, attaching and removing accessories and cleaning and loading the pushchair into a car boot

As well as rating pushchairs in our expert lab tests, we also get our parent panel to try out and rate each pushchair with their child. Whenever we uncover safety issues we push for positive change, to improve the market for all parents.
