Umbrella strollers

These are lightweight and easy to maneuver, making them a good option for travel or quick trips around town. Most are extremely simple in design, and some come with an umbrella cover to keep out the sun and rain. They are also the easiest to store because of their simple shape. These strollers are typically less expensive than full-sized ones and are best for older babies and toddlers.

Jogging strollers

These strollers have large, air-filled tires and are designed for parents who want to be active and love to jog or run with their babies. They are meant for outdoor use and rough terrain. These kinds are more aerodynamic for speed and have three wheels instead of the usual four for greater maneuverability. They provide a smooth ride and are suitable for babies six months and up.

Double strollers

These strollers are designed for parents of twins or two children, but some come as triple and even quad! They can be configured in various ways to accommodate different needs. You can even in some models have children of two different ages or sizes in their proper seats. They come in many different styles, including side-by-side,  front and back, and cart style. 

Travel systems

These strollers come with a detachable infant car seat that can be used in the car and snapped straight onto the stroller frame. This makes it easier to transfer your baby from the car to the stroller without ever waking them up. Many models grow with your child to accommodate their sizes as they grow.
