Welcome to the world of new parenthood! It’s unfamiliar territory, but we can provide you with one friend who will help you through every step of the way: your trusty and loyal baby stroller. Explore this section for the best single strollers on the market – and if you’re stumped, ask us which stroller is best for you! We love chatting with our customers and matching you with the stroller of your dreams.
Here at Magic Beans, we’re absolutely obsessed with strollers. We want the stroller you purchase from us to keep you happy through many years of heavy use. So we only stock the best stroller brands, tried-and-true models which we’ve tested, monitored, and often used with our own kids, from Bugaboo, Maclaren, Baby Jogger, Stokke, BOB, UPPAbaby, and more.
Which of these baby strollers is right for you? It’s going to depend on your lifestyle. Do you spend a lot of time in the city? Stroll in style with the perennial favorite Bugaboo Cameleon 3 Stroller, or the ultra-popular UPPAbaby Vista. If you’re a heavy user of mass transit, lighten your load with the well-loved Baby Jogger City Mini, or an even lighter umbrella stroller like the UPPAbaby G-Luxe. Planning on lots of trips abroad? An endlessly adaptable Orbit Baby G3 Travel System makes airports and cabs easy.
For more outdoorsy moms who hike and jog, tougher all-terrain strollers will do the trick. The Bugaboo Buffalo Stroller is an outdoors powerhouse, with huge zero-maintenance tires and an incredible amount of storage. Jogging moms and dads will love the BOB Revolution FLEX stroller, which boasts a handy adjustable-height handlebar.
All of the strollers in this section are single strollers, made to accommodate one baby in one stroller seat, but accessories let you easily mix and match your seating. Many of these strollers come with a cozy bassinet, or have matching stroller bassinets available for separate purchase. Or, you can add an infant car seat adapter to make it easy to transfer your teeny newborn from the car to the stroller. Or, when Baby #2 arrives, some of our single strollers can take a second seat – for instance, the Baby Jogger City Select lets you customize with 16 possible configurations of one or two seats, and the Bugaboo Donkey expands sideways to seat a second child.
What is a hybrid stroller? The category is typified by two of our customer favorites: the lovely and versatile Bugaboo Cameleon stroller, and the hugely popular UPPAbaby Vista stroller. You’ll see both of these stunners all over our hometown of Boston, and it’s not just because they’re pretty! These baby strollers are versatile, sturdy, and comfy for baby, built for many long years of long walks with your child. read more
Many hybrid strollers include a stroller bassinet, which is ideal for showing off your newborn baby from day one. Others accommodate an infant car seat adapter, so you can snap on your car seat and use your new stroller as a travel system.
Most of these models also have a reversible stroller seat, allowing younger babies to gaze up happily at mom for ideal bonding, and reversing to allow older, more curious kids to interact with the wider world. Some of these strollers, like the Stokke Xplory, have a tall stroller seat, so babies can see even more of their surroundings.
Finally, all of the strollers in this section have a four-on-the-floor design with big rear wheels for an ultra-smooth ride in the city or suburb. Not sure which one of these strollers is for you? Ask us! We love every one of these strollers, and we want you to find the one you’ll love the most, too. show less
Active parents take their baby – and thus, their baby stroller – everywhere, from rocky trails to city sidewalks. An all-terrain stroller gives your baby a smooth ride and is easy for you to push and steer in any situation. read more
Most all-terrain strollers have three wheels, for improved maneuverability. The rear stroller tires are usually bigger than the single front tire, which often can be locked for jogging or left to swivel in order to enable tight turns. The BOB Revolution FLEX stroller epitomizes this stroller category, with serious all-terrain capability: the rear air-filled tires and sophisticated suspension ensure a smooth ride for baby no matter where you go, but the swiveling front wheel makes it easy to take this stroller on an elevator or into the grocery store.
Parents who jog with babies: we salute you! If you’re planning on introducing your new baby to your favorite hobby before she takes her first step, you’ll need a jogging stroller: a big, sturdy baby stroller made to sail straight ahead at running speed while giving your baby a smooth and comfy stroller ride. read more
Jogging strollers have an aerodynamic wedge shape, with one stroller wheel in front and two in back. Often, the rear stroller tires are air-filled bicycle-style tires, and many models, like the BOB Revolution SE jogging stroller, have suspension to cushion your baby from the bumps on the road. Many of these stroller models, including the BOB Revolution, have a front wheel that can lock in place for jogging, or swivel for strolling. The advantage: a locked stroller wheel charges straight ahead most effectively, while a swiveling wheel gives you the best maneuverability for low-speed strolling.
As with the BOB, many jogging strollers work beautifully for jogging but also make great all-around every day strollers, too. Check out some of our offerings from Baby Jogger and Valco Baby for strollers that do double duty. We have double jogging strollers too, so you’ll barely have to break stride between babies.
While we love our luxe and deluxe hybrid strollers and all-terrain baby strollers, sometimes you just need to travel light. Lightweight and umbrella strollers have plenty of advantages for urban and suburban strolling with baby, and they’re superb at the mall or traveling abroad. read more
A typical lightweight stroller weighs under 20 pounds, and has an easy, teeny-tiny compact fold that takes up next to no space in your car trunk. Maclaren strollers are often the go-to lightweight stroller, since they’re the lightest of all – the feather-light Maclaren Volo weighs only 8.8 pounds, and can haul a child weighing up to 55 pounds!
The weight of a lightweight stroller varies depending on how many features the baby stroller includes. For instance, the wildly popular Baby Jogger City Mini stroller, weighing in at a svelte 17 pounds, is a sporty little classic with a small footprint and lots of features: great steering, a smooth ride, a huge canopy, and an ample recline. And have you seen how Baby Jogger strollers fold? It’s this easy.
Or, for the paradoxical deluxe lightweight stroller, check out the buzz on the Bugaboo Bee stroller, Bugaboo’s smallest and lightest stroller model. This bee-witching little baby stroller has awesome suspension and a reversible seat, and you can adjust the stroller backrest, canopy, and harness with one hand for a perfect fit.
Unlike the Bugaboo Bee, most lightweight strollers lack the support to accommodate a newborn baby, but many of these stroller models work with infant car seat adapters – check out our selection here, so you can start using your stunning new stroller from day one!
When you have a tiny newborn baby, you want to let her sleep as much as possible, so any travel solution that lets you avoid waking her is preferable. Stroller travel systems and infant car seat adapters enable you to snap your infant car seat to a stroller, so you don’t have to undo any car seat straps and risk disturbing a sleeping baby. read more
Or, you can use an infant car seat frame: a bare-bones, lightweight mini-stroller that lets your infant car seat snap neatly in. Infant car seat frames are an excellent solution for those early months before a new baby is ready for her stroller seat, and they make transitions in and out of the car easy and speedy. Try the popular Graco Snugrider, designed especially for the Graco Snugride Infant Car Seat, or the Chicco Keyfit Caddy, which carries the popular Chicco Keyfit Infant Car Seat.
Or, you could go deluxe: not only does the Orbit Baby G2 Stroller Frame fit with the Orbit Baby G2 Infant Car Seat, but when your baby ages out of the car seat, this frame can carry the Orbit Baby G2 Stroller Seat.
