Definitive Guide to Stroller Shopping: Adventure Ready, Flock Approved
We’re probably not the first guide you’re reading while doing stroller shopping research. Mamas and daddies worldwide spend hours and hours scouring the internet to figure out if full-size strollers, lightweight strollers, double strollers, or wagons are the best fit for their families.
Rebelstork is here to keep the review of strollers short and sweet—just like your little one!
Check out our definitive stroller shopping guide to support your decisions in choosing the right one to stroll with.
Types of Strollers
Stroll call! Here’s Team Rebby’s list of different types of strollers our Flock has purchased thousands of.
It doesn’t matter how many strollers you have in your lineup. But, if you only decide to purchase one type of stroller, then this is it!
Full-size strollers like the Baby Jogger City Select ® 2 Eco Stroller are your convertible, everyday, all-purpose stroller for Trader Joe's runs, routine stops by Starbucks, and all of your other favorite (insert happy place here) runs. A full-seat recline is perfect for naps on the go. Plus, this stroller grows with you as it can go from a single to a double stroller or triple stroller with additional accessories.
Shopping for double strollers depends on the reason you need a double stroller. Are you over-the-moon excited and mildly panicked to welcome a pair of twins joining your family? Or are you a Type A planner who tries to schedule your pregnancies and kids so they’re evenly spaced one - two years apart?
For parents who need a double stroller, the Valco Baby Trend Duo Double Stroller has an easy compact fold to keep those busy hands as free as possible. Our arms are already hurting thinking about transporting two kids every day, which is why this lighter double stroller takes some of that pressure off.
Suppose you’re having a second baby while juggling your first who’s still in diapers. In that case, consider the award-winning Mockingbird Single-to-Double Stroller. What to Expect called this the “Best New Stroller Brand” and Babylist ranked it as a “Registry Must-Have.” This stroller transforms from a single to a double. It gives siblings a chance to face Mom and Dad or look forward to the exciting path ahead—all while enjoying a smooth ride. Life with multiple children is never smooth sailing, but at least their stroller rides can be.
Things we can leave behind this year: cluttered living spaces, fast-food dinners, and paying full price for baby gear.
Feeling lighter already?
Keep the weight off your shoulders and your back with a lightweight stroller. Lightweight strollers are well, light. They’re also more portable, great for travel, easy to maneuver in tight spaces and corners, and have a lighter price tag too. The Cybex Libelle or the Cybex Eezy S Twist +2 Stroller are two lightweight strollers that hold their value. Our bestie tool REV™ told us so!

Time to jump on the wagon bandwagon!
Wagons like the Keenz XC Lux 2 Passenger Comfort Stroller Wagon carry up to 216 pounds. That’s a lot of kids and juice boxes to transport! The all-terrain wheels are built for summer beach trips and trekking through the muddy hills of your neighborhood park. Kids will enjoy the comfy seats while you swoon over the ample storage.
Bonus: wagons can accommodate car seats with an adaptor too—like a travel system!
Families of two have all the heart emoji eyes over wagons because the little ones can face and interact with each other. We love a good sibling moment, where they can play together and you no longer have to be their sole source of entertainment!
Some wagons like the Keenz 7S+ Ultimate Adventure 4 Passenger Stroller Wagon can fit up to four kids—whether they're all your children or you pick up some of your kid's playmates along the ride.
