Best Stroller For Toddlers 2011

The best stroller for toddlers really depends on how its going to be used. Here are some features to consider:

How long do you anticipate using a stroller for. Its worth looking at the maximum height and weight capacity to be sure there is plenty of growing room in your stroller for your toddles. Some have weight capacities of 40 pounds and lower. Other strollers have a user weight capacity of 50 pounds which will last well into the preschooler years. 

Umbrella Stroller or Jogging stroller? Umbrella strollers are often a popular option for toddlers. They're lightweight so lighter to push with a heavy toddler inside, easy to carry when the toddler is not in them and easy to lift in and out of cars etc. They're great for travelling or for trips to the shop etc. However, if you're likely to be making longer trips and need a stroller for use over different terrain, bumpy roads etc you may prefer a jogger. Many joggers have weight capacities up to 75 pounds and can accommodate 5 year olds comfortably and easily. However, they tend to be a lot more expensive.

I bought the Joovy Kooper, had to return it because the front wheel mechanism is awful. It looks really stylish though, but not very functional.

I had the joovy kooper and was disappointed with it. front wheels are terrible, keeps locking by itself. rear breaks are a pain too, too hard to lock and unlock, needs 2 hands to recline, not so durable, started to fall apart in 3 weeks. what a waste of money.
