Mothercare Orb pushchair

The Mothercare Orb is a new addition to the top 10

Mums and dads-to-be are often keen to know which pushchairs are most popular with other parents. Here, we reveal the 10 most-read buggy reviews on our website, so you can find out which strollers, travel systems and all-terrain pushchairs other people are most interested in.

From Quinny and Babystyle to iCandy and Bugaboo, most of the biggest buggy brands feature in our top 10 for spring 2014. And Mothercare - which is at the more affordable end of the pushchair market - now claims two spots in the top 10, with the Mothercare Orb sneaking in to join the Mothercare Xpedior and knocking the Mamas & Papas Sola out of the list.

However, it's important to remember that popularity doesn't always signal quality, as Which? baby and child expert Lisa Galliers explains: 'The test scores of these popular pushchairs range from a mediocre 58% to an impressive 89%, so it's worth reading our pushchair reviews before you buy so you know that you're choosing the best buggy for you and your baby.'

How Which? tests pushchairs

Every pushchair we review is subjected to a rigorous programme of both scientific, lab-based testing and real-life user testing by parents and babies.

In our lab, we test the buggy for safety, strength and durability. Ergonomics experts then assess the pushchair for comfort, and finally, members of our parent panel take the pushchair around an obstacle course with their child and rate it on how easy it is to push, steer, fold, carry and adjust.

As we buy everything we test and don't feature any advertising in our magazine or online, you can rest assured that our reviews are completely impartial and unbiased, meaning that Best Buy pushchairs really will go above and beyond competitor models.
