Avoid low scoring pushchairs

Which? pushchair reviews go further than anyone else's to uncover the best pushchairs. Our checks and tests reveal which ones have wheels that fall off, handle bars that break, or places where fingers could get trapped. Our expert lab tests separate the pushchairs you should steer clear of.

  • Our safety checks find finger traps, choking hazards, zips that can be pulled off 
  • Experts check for sharp parts, things that stick out and could cause injury, jagged edges and poor quality workmanship.
  • Durability testing reveals pushchairs where bolts fall out, metal parts sheer, wheels fall off or buckle underneath the pushchair, rendering it useless. 

How we uncover the best and worst pushchairs

If a pushchair can't survive our testing, we'll have serious doubts it's the best pushchair out there for the daily grind of life with a newborn and then see you through until toddler years. We've seen pricey, top of the range travel systems break under the strain of our durability testing. You don't want to worry that six months down the line the wheels will fall off or the basket break away.
