Hi Eli,

Can you please suggest some urban everyday strollers from 6 months up to 22 kg and with a large basket for shopping?

Hi, Patty,

A good thing is to know that the weight limit doesn't say anything about longevity. Many strollers claim 22kg weight capacity but would never really fit a 4yo child. Personally I prefer a 15kg weight limit stroller with a spacious seat (I had two kids, 34+ kg together, in one like that at the same time, and it was ok) rather than a 22kg "tested" stroller that is reversible and will simply not have the room for a large kid. Just stating that the limits are not a key thing for the most part.

You did not say anything about the budget, nor about weight or reversibility. It is hard for me to just pick from all the categories. I will suggest a Joie Versatrax from the reversible because of its basket, then a Valco trend which is SUPER spacious and has a nice enough basket space, the Baby Jogger City Mini GT2 because of the seat space too (very roomy) and a nice enough basket, and the Mamas&Papas Armadillo because of that same reason.

You go, check these, and think about the budget, terrain, seat of the stroller... and if you need more help, write.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
