Umbrella stroller showdown

Abbi Perets lives in Houston, TX, with her husband and five children.

The best umbrella strollers

Looking for a new stroller? Between umbrella, high end, double, travel systems -- the choices can be overwhelming. Amazon lists about 800 different models. Your local baby superstore might have 200 of those in stock -- which means you could spend hours, days, or even weeks agonizing. Our Stroller Showdown here at SheKnows gives you a fighting chance of choosing the best buggy for your baby in under an hour.

The Verdict

If an umbrella meets your family's needs, consider our Showdown Winner, the Chicco Liteway. With a suggested retail price of $130 and frequent markdowns to around $100, it offers great value for the money. You can use it for years, and while it may not look as cool as the Zapp, it offers much more function.
