Life with a newborn

Top 25 Strollers and Prams to check out!

By  | 

I’ve searched the internet to bring you the best of the best when it comes to Prams and Strollers available worldwide.

Most of these brands are already available in South Africa and I am sure that the others will be making their way into Africa soon! 😉

Baby products have changed tremendously over the years! Brands are spending more time in creating convenient products for parents that are on the go and need to save space. These strollers and prams are trending in the industry at the moment and offer the millennial mom exactly what she needs! 😉

A stroller (Canada & U.S.A.) or pram (U.K) is a hand-pushed vehicle to carry babies and young infants. 

Types of Strollers available: 

  • Standard strollers
  • Jogging strollers
  • Travel systems
  • Tandem or double strollers

Top 25 Prams and Strollers to check out in 2017!

in no particular order.top 25 strollers

1. Doona Car seat stroller

top 30 prams and strollers

I’ve written about Doona on my blog before and now that I own one with the Isofix base, I can’t imagine getting any other car seat for Kiaan right now.

Doonaâ„¢ is the only car seat in the world that goes from car seat to stroller in seconds.

top 30 prams and strollers

Doona has 3 modes for use in different situations:

  • Car Seat mode – This mode is intended for use in a vehicle. The wheels are tucked under the Doona body and the handle is placed in Anti-Rebound mode and pressed against the vehicle seat back to prevent rebounding in case of a crash. Doona should only be used in car seat mode when in a vehicle.
  • Pull-Along mode – This mode is intended for walking and maneuvering in tight or crowded spaces. The wheels are out and the handle is in the vertically upright position to allow puling the Doona right alongside the parent.
  • On-the-Go mode – This mode is intended for walking in open spaces – just like a stroller. The wheels are out and the handle is extended in a 45-degree angle towards the parent.
