Most parents will agree that every little bit helps when you've got a child, so features like great mobility, fantastic turning radius and lightweight design make these strollers very desirable. Their stylish designs and wide range of color options make the sale. The only question you're left with is, which one to choose?

I love the fact the bugaboo comes with a CD for installation instructions. one of the common gripes about them is the complexity involved in the setup. The great thing about most of these high end strollers is the fact they can accommodate babies from infancy to 4 yo....and tihnk about it $0.73 a day could be $0.36 or even $0.18 a day with 2 or 3 kids ;)

Not bad recommendations, but your really missing out if you don't try the Peg Perego Skate stroller. This thing is amazing! Much more flexible pram to stroller conversion, has more storage, and handles better than anay of the high end strollers I tried from Bugaboo, McLaren, and Quinny.

Yep - it costs loads for a decent pram / stroller - I forked out for a bugaboo but saved loads of money on accessories by shopping here http://www.toffeeappleworld.co.uk/about-other-pram...
