When looking for a stroller, you should first examine the list of all the main features: weight, maximum supported weight, wheels (type, size, material), folding mechanism, handle (material, height), cup holder, basket (size, type, material, accessibility), canopy, seat (material, size, shape), reclining mechanism (position of all adjustable levels), baby food tray, and all other accessories. Next, assign value to each of these categories based on importance to you. Next, pull up all strollers, in your price range, that satisfy your most valuable requirements. This is your short list you will need to focus on. From here, selecting the right stroller will be a function of feature trade-offs.
If you are looking for a simple, yet effective, toddler transportation device, which will essentially do the job of a stroller, then you might consider these three alternatives. Just to clarify, when I say alternatives, I am suggesting that these rides could complement strollers and re-direct you from buying potentially your second stroller.
Having a lightweight on-the-go stroller is a must-have item, in my opinion. These strollers are convenient, maneuverable, and take very little space. Top lightweight stroller choices under $100 do not come as plain as one might expect.
