Got a baby on the way and a pressing pushchair decision to make? We've rounded up the most-read pushchair reviews on the which.co.uk website for the last six months, and put them into a handy top 10.

More than 150,000 people viewed our pushchair reviews between June and December last year, and while big brands such as Bugaboo, Quinny and iCandy still hold firm places in the top 10 most-read reviews, the surprising omission of Silver Cross has been rectified – with the Silver Cross Pioneer pushchair heading straight in to 6th position in the most-read reviews.

Popularity, of course, doesn't always equal quality. To find out which of these popular reviews are Best Buys, head straight to our pushchair reviews where we'll reveal all, so you can get buying with confidence.

How we test pushchairs

Which? pushchair testing is unique because:

  • Our tests are based on years of experience, testing more than 300 pushchairs in five years
  • We buy everything we lab-test
  • We're completely independent of any manufacturers
  • We don't accept adverts in our magazines or on our website.

Which? pushchair testing combines safety testing, durability testing and parent user trials. We spend nearly £90,000 each year testing pushchairs to find the very best, and bump every pushchair over the equivalent of 206km on a bumpy treadmill track to find out which pushchairs can last the distance. 

To become a Which? Best Buy, single pushchairs must score at least 76% overall in our tests and double pushchairs must score at least 70% overall.
