Our tough tests compare and identify the best pushchairs for ride quality and pushing, seat comfort and ease of folding. 

We ask parents how happy they are with their pushchair brand. This is so we can get a complete picture of how good a model is when new and how it fares over time. 

We also ask parents what features they look for when buying one, rating them for importance, from good suspension to a reversible seat.

How we help you to choose the best pushchair

When you're choosing a pushchair, you want a brand and a model you can trust. But there are also a number of other key things to consider.  

For example, do you want a lightweight stroller or a full pushchair travel system? You can find out more about the pros and cons of each in our guide on how to buy the right pushchair, including whether you should go for a buggy, travel-system or all-terrain pushchair. Plus, read our pushchairs and prams jargon buster.

We put our pushchairs through an enormous range of tests that check everything from the structural safety of the product, to whether your buggy will get stuck in the sand if you head to the beach.

We do hundreds of checks, and use a panel of experts and parents and children to get feedback on the models we test.
