Stroller Chic - A Guide to High End Strollers

Updated on March 11, 2008

$800 for a Stroller?!?

You bet. For something that you will use every day for 3 years, an $800 stroller works out to $0.73 a day. 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?

Bugaboo

Being sported by many celebrity parents, the Bugaboo stroller line is one of the most revolutionary on the market today with great features, wonderful customer service and superb mobility. Debuting in Holland in 1999 by 2 brothers, the Bugaboo stroller line is highly regarded as one of the best strollers to own.

  • Lightweight frame makes it a cinch to fold and transport.
  • Stylish design is appealing to moms as well as dads.

  • Some models include a removable bassinet, which is great for transporting a sleeping baby from stroller to house.
  • Available in a multitude of colors.
  • CD-ROM with easy installation instructions.
  • Great for city travel - handles potholes, curbs and bumpy sidewalks with ease.
  • Great turning radius.
  • Retails for $700 - $800 USD

Stokke

The Stokke line of baby strollers is another high-end product for parents looking for a durable yet lightweight stroller. This stroller stands out more than others because the baby/child seat moves up and down, so your child can sit very high, closer to you and other people around them. This stroller is sure to turn heads with it's unique design.

  • Seat sits high for riding or low for restaurant tables
  • Easy to open and operate.
  • Good maneuvering with larger wheels.
  • Plush fabric for seat.
  • One-hand effortless pushing.
  • Available in 6 colors.
  • $800 - $1200 USD.

Orbit Baby Infant System

The Orbit Baby high end stroller system is geared toward infants and has one of the best designs for infant mobility. The infant carrier docks easily into a base secured into the car with latch or seat-belts, and rotates on the stroller 360 degrees. The baby can sit forward facing, rear facing or even sideways. This is especially convenient when using the stroller in a restaurant and you want the baby facing you and the table.

  • 360 degree seat rotation.
  • Infant carrier seat easily lifts and carries with soft handles.
  • Lightweight
  • Clean design.
  • Fits infants to 29" (most infant systems fit 26-27")
  • Soft and machine washable seat cover.
  • Parent cup holder (most high-end strollers do not have this).
  • $900 USD

      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.

      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 ;)
