It’s time to start brainstorming baby names, begin building your baby registry, and digging in on researching for your dream stroller which is like first time parent rite of passage! Here’s the thing, if there was one perfect stroller on the market—we would all have the exact same make and model. The truth is, you have a unique list of needs and wants that are different than the Mama who is expecting down the street.

So, today we are going to walk you through some of our top stroller picks of the year to help you decide which one might be best for you.

Getting Started

With so many options on the market, you’ll want to get familiar with what questions to ask before you buy so we recommend checking out our Stroller Buying Guide, then reading on to decide which stroller might be best for you and your growing family!

Let's get started with a few things all of these strollers have in common:

  • An adjustable handlebar to accommodate a variety of heights
  • A reclining and reversible seat so that baby can face you or the world
  • A UPF 50+ canopy
  • Adjustable calf-support
  • Leather details throughout [some are genuine leather and others are vegan]

UPPAbaby VISTA V2

The VISTA V2 has been a popular choice for parents for many years. Why? It is luxurious and easy to use for parents and grandparents alike.

The fold is simple and the VISTA is decked out with lots of great features like an included sleep safe bassinet, no adapters required when using the UPPAbaby MESA Infant Car Seat, and the ability to hold a second child when the time is right. We also love that the VISTA can accommodate bigger kids with a 50 lb weight limit on the seat and a no re-thread harness and canopy that can move up and down as your little one grows. Oh, and the basket that can hold up to 30 lbs. which is a great feature for your maternity leave shopping trips. The all wheel suspension and large wheels is what allows the VISTA V2 to glide easily through snow, sand, or whatever the weather throws at you.

You can customize your VISTA V2 with lots of great accessories to really make the stroller work for you—we’ve highlighted our favourite in the article, our Top 8 Must-Have UPPAbaby VISTA Accessories to start shopping!

The Specs:

  • Weight: 27 lbs
  • Weight Limit: 50 lbs
  • Second Seat Weight Limit: 35 lbs
  • Expandable: YES!

City Select 2 ECO

It’s true! The City Select and City Select LUX strollers have been replaced.

Baby Jogger has stepped up their game with a new aesthetic that we are loving on the City Select 2 and City Select 2 ECO strollers. The Select 2 models have gotten an overhaul in design and function and now have an improved fold to be about 20% more compact than other strollers on the market. With 24 configurations to choose from, this single stroller can be converted to a tandem double stroller for twins or when the time comes to add a second baby to your family. We love that both the included seat and the second seat can hold 45 lbs each. Suspension? Front wheel only.

So – what are the biggest differences between the Select 2 and Select 2 ECO

The Select 2 ECO models are made with an earth friendly TENCIL fabric on the canopy and seat pads. The ECO model also comes with an included belly bar that is wrapped in a trendy perforated leatherette fabric. You can read all about the Baby Jogger ECO Collection in this article HERE.

The Specs:

  • Weight: 26.7 lbs
  • Weight Limit: 45 lbs
  • Second Seat Weight Limit: 45 lbs
  • Expandable: YES!

Silver Cross Wave

The Silver Cross Wave is the epitome of versatility with its 30 possible configurations – 7 of which are ready to go right out of the box. Use the Wave right from birth with the included bassinet or an infant car seat paired with adapters, grow into the included main seat, and then make room for more with the tandem seat!

The 2022 Wave features Silver Cross' NEW ergonomic Genius™ harness system – a magnetic 5-point safety buckle that is so easy-to-use, and fastens together with three simple clicks. Combine that with its 4-way dynamic suspension and easy, hassle free fold, and the Wave is a guaranteed smooth ride.

Did we mention that it's super stylish, too? Check out our full Silver Cross Wave product review here.

Nuna MIXX Next

Next up is the Nuna MIXX Next Stroller. It has a compact fold and is packed with features that keep it functional for families but it’s also a great choice because it looks really good too.

You will love the no re-thread 5-point harness with self-guiding magnetic buckle for loading your squirmy little one in and out [oh, toddlerhood!] The flip out eye shade and all-season seat means it's great for the summertime offering baby lots of protection from the sun and lots of ventilation.

Yes, that’s right. The fabric in the seat can be completely removed to offer up a fully ventilated back for your baby! The MIXX Next is a single stroller only—but it really does pack a lot of punch.

The Specs:

  • Weight: 28.3 lbs
  • Weight Limit: 50 lbs
  • Expandable: NO

Bugaboo Fox 3

Say, “hello” to the Bugaboo Fox 3 Stroller!

Talk about luxury features. Bugaboo strollers are known for their smooth push – but, with recent 2022 updates, the Fox 3 now has even more to offer than a fingertip push.

Expecting a summer baby? You will appreciate the impressive ventilation and “breezy panel” that surrounds the base of the included pram [bassinet] and a full coverage canopy that can be zipped out to create a cocoon suitable for napping on the go. We also love that the canopy can be changed to customize the look of your stroller [sold separately] depending on your mood. This Fox 3 sun canopy is available in morning pink, sunrise red, and our favourite forest green. Shop all of the other adorable canopy colours HERE.

Other features we love? A 50 lb rider limit to keep up with the competition, and a must-have no re-thread harness. Best part? The Fox 3 is stacked with features, and it still comes in at only 21.8 lbs which is less than all of the other strollers we’ve introduced you to today.

Just like the Nuna MIXX Next, the Fox 3 is a single stroller only but if you are looking for something just a premium but with double stroller capabilities read on – because the Donkey 5 may be the right choice for you.

The Specs:

  • Weight: 21.8lbs.
  • Weight Limit: 50lbs.
  • Expandable: NO

Bugaboo Donkey 5

The Donkey 5 is customizable and can grow with your family offering configurations as a double or single stroller and is the only side-by-side option we’ve showcased thus far. When you think about pushing TWO children – side by side just makes sense.

When using this stroller in mono mode [single] there is a convenient little side storage basket that you can use to store your goodies. It has a zippered top to keep valuables safe – or can be used as a shopping bag when you are out and about.

Ready to convert to a double stroller? You can easily make this change in x3 easy clicks – one on the handlebar, one on the bottom of the basket front, and the basket back. Then just expand the frame and add your second seat [sold separately] So, can you really push this stroller when it is fully loaded with TWO? The answer is a big Y-E-S! We credit that to the Bugaboo 1-touch smooth push paired with a killer set of 10” and 12” wheels that can power through any terrain. Go ahead and picture your little ones sitting side-by-side holding hands and taking in the world around them together!

The Specs:

  • Weight: 26.9 lbs
  • Weight Limit: 50 lbs
  • Second Seat Limit: 50 lbs
  • Expandable: YES!
