BabyStyle pushchairs range from affordable strollers to premium travel systems. Find out how the full range has done in our tests.
The BabyStyle ranges of Egg and Oyster pushchairs certainly stand out – they come in a variety of eye-catching colours and designs, which can be changed if you get bored and fancy a different look. The Egg and the new Egg Quail, in particular, also has quite a distinctive shape.
BabyStyle says its pushchairs are light and compact when folded, which is bound to make them appealing, plus they are packed full of genuinely useful features. But what did we find when we sent these pushchairs for safety and durability testing?

BabyStyle reviews and Best Buys
Oyster pushchairs are compatible with several popular baby car seat brands, such as Maxi-Cosi, Britax, Besafe and Cybex. Egg pushchairs convert into an all-in-one travel system using a specially designed Kiddy car seat, and are compatible with other baby car seats with the use of adaptors.
Whatever pushchair you get, make sure that you choose the best baby car seat – our crash tests have found big differences between a good one and a bad one – so visit our Best Buy baby car seat reviews.
BabyStyle Oyster 3 review
BabyStyle's latest Oyster pushchair has arrived. The Oyster 3 has been completely redesigned with larger wheels, a bigger seat unit, larger shopping basket and a larger carrycot. It's bigger than the Oyster 2, but now folds smaller, plus it's lighter in weight. The original BabyStyle Oyster pushchair was one of our most popular pushchairs for a very long time. Can the new Oyster 3 pushchair take this title?

BabyStyle Egg Quail review
The BabyStyle Egg Quail pushchair is designed to be a more compact version of the Egg stroller. This urban pushchair could give The Bugaboo Bee and iCandy's Raspberry a run for their money, thanks to a compact fold and lightweight manoeuvrability, but can it really compete?

BabyStyle Oyster Atom review
The Babystyle Atom joins the wave of on-trend, lightweight and compact strollers designed for travel. The name's a hint to what this stroller offers: it's small, light and boasts a one-hand fold. BabyStyle says it's 'perfect for travel'. Is it worth the price tag?

BabyStyle Oyster Zero review
The original BabyStyle Oyster was massively popular, so the Oyster Zero has a lot to live up to. This super-light version has full suspension and a zip-out hood. Lightweight strollers are a perfect pushchair option when you don't want to lug about a bulky travel system. Is this pushchair is a hero or a Zero?

BabyStyle Egg double review
In 2015, Babystyle converted its original Egg pushchair into a double. With its stylish design, it's clearly intended to rival high-end pushchairs, but can it compete?

BabyStyle Egg review
The BabyStyle Egg is the brand's first luxury travel system and costs around £700. It certainly looks the part, with a striking curved design, but beyond aesthetics, is it worth shelling out for?

BabyStyle Oyster Max review
This pushchair, also a travel system like the original Oyster, can be used as a single or double pushchair. It's a little bigger than the original Oyster, but does that make a difference to how easy it is to use?
You can read our review of the BabyStyle Oyster Max to find out.
BabyStyle Oyster Max double review
If you want to convert the Oyster Max when you buy it, or later, you can buy an extra seat, car seat and carrycot.
But how easy is converting the pushchair, and will having two seats make it bulky and difficult to push? See our review of the Babystyle Oyster Max double to find out.
How we review BabyStyle pushchairs
We put each BabyStyle pushchair through more than 30 tests to check its strength, durability and safety in line with British standards, including checking for finger traps or choking hazards.
We assess how easy the pushchair is to push, adjust for children of different ages and to fold up. We also assess suitability for public transport and test to see if there's space left in the boot of a standard family car once the pushchair is in there.
The final part of our testing involves a panel of parents (and their babies), who rate the appearance and features of the pushchair. They take each model for a spin to see how easy and convenient it is to manoeuvre on pavements, bumpy ground, up and down stairs and around other obstacles.
Find out which pushchairs topped our tests and have been named Best Buy pushchairs.
How much does a BabyStyle pushchair cost?
Oyster pushchairs start at around £200 for the Oyster Atom. At the other end, the top-of-the-range Oyster Egg double will set you back more than £1,000.
Don't forget to factor in the cost for any colour packs for BabyStyle pushchairs – these can include includes a seat liner, car seat head hugger, hood and bag for life – and cost around £50.
If you're happy to buy second-hand, looking on sites such as Ebay can knock anywhere from £50 to £200 off the price, depending on what's included and what condition the pushchair is in. If you're buying second-hand, our guide will help know what to look out for.
