Do you need to know which strollers are worth every penny? We’ve broken it down and found four sweet rides for you and your baby.

Happy moms at the park with babies in strollers

If you’ve shopped for strollers, you’ve probably noticed a huge range of prices, from rock-bottom cheap to luxury high-end. You assume that the higher cost means better quality, but which pricey strollers are really worth the splurge? Don’t worry, we’ve done the work for you, and found four strollers that are indeed worth the extra pennies.

Maclaren BMW Buggy

Maclaren BMW Buggy

The BMW Buggy from Maclaren (Maclaren, $385) is a popular choice for families. This amazing stroller is perfect for babies 6 months and up and features a seat that reclines to multiple positions, a BMW-inspired removable seat liner, a five-point harness and even a custom BMW insignia buckle. The stroller is lightweight and easy to handle, coming in at just over 12 pounds. Parents love that it folds and stows easily.

The stroller comes in black, silver and blue, and has a comfortable bucket-style seat, which maximizes comfort for baby. Built with an aluminum frame, materials were responsibly sourced with sustainable and recycled material, leading to the BMW Buggy being a fully recyclable model. It also features BMW-inspired wheels and automotive design touches like rear reflectors.

UPPAbaby 2013 G-Luxe

UPPAbaby 2013 G-Luxe Stroller

Available in five different colors, the UPPAbaby 2013 G-Luxe (Amazon.com, $230) is a favorite because it folds easily and features a stain- and water-resistant removable seat pad that is comfortable for the baby. This reclining umbrella stroller is lightweight and not only has an easy-to-recline seat, but the footrest is adjustable, so your baby can nap anywhere you go.

The hand-level trigger makes it easy to fold with just your fingers, and even cooler — once it’s folded, it stands on its own. You don't need to lean it against the wall or find a place to stash it — just stick it in the corner when you’re not using it. The handles are high, which is great for parents who are average height and taller. Parents report that it steers easily and features a modern, attractive design.

Britax B-Ready

Britax B-Ready

Another very popular choice among parents is the B-Ready from Britax (Amazon.com, $375). This stroller features foam-filled rubber tires, great handling, a large canopy with a sun visor and ventilation window, and a five-point adjustable harness that doesn’t require re-threading when your baby grows.

Moms love this stroller because it's so versatile. It is expandable to your unique needs and was designed to work in many different configurations. It works with Britax-branded car seats and bassinets, and is even compatible (with the Infant Car Seat Adapter Frame) with other major infant car seat brands, such as Chicco and Graco.

Baby Jogger City Mini

Baby Jogger City Mini Stroller

The Baby Jogger City Mini (Amazon.com, $211) is another lightweight stroller that gets rave reviews. This sturdy stroller comes with a big sunshade, a swivel front wheel that can be locked into place if needed, a padded seat that reclines to a near-flat position and front-wheel suspension for a comfortable ride.

Parents love that it folds and unfolds easily — a must when you’re in a busy place or holding something (like your baby). The handlebar is round and easy to use, and the storage basket below is large and easy to access. The five-point harness keeps your child safe and bucked in, and even has shoulder pads for comfort and a buckle cover — perfect for your little escape artist.
