Review Strollers: What baby stroller to buy?

Updated: Sep 14


Potete leggere questo articolo in Italiano qui.


When I was 7 months pregnant I finally decided to start my research on strollers.


I realised that there were many models of strollers on the market: cheap but heavy, light but expensive, “trios”, “duos", whatever! At that point I thought I would never see the light at the end of the tunnel 😅!


In the beginning of my research I decided not to take the price into consideration. I was looking for a simple stroller, not bulky and easy to use. I was uncertain whether I wanted just a duo (carrycot and stroller) or a trio (carrycot, stroller and an infant car seat).


After looking around for a couple of weeks I decided to go with a trio and I focused on two brands: Cybex and Peg Perego. There are Pros and Cons on both sides, of course, but in the end these brands offer “tiny” and high quality strollers.


By Cybex I liked two strollers, one from their Platinum category, Cybex Platinum Priam, and one from their Gold category, Cybex Gold Balios S. From Peg Perego the only stroller that I liked was the Peg Perego Book 51.

Being unsure of what I wanted I decided to have a closer look in store. And here is my opinion after seeing them live:

Dopo averli visti e valutanti tutti e 3 dal vivo, ho deciso di optare per il Cybex Gold Balios S.

Ho pagato circa 700 euro su Amazon per il trio (carrozzina, passeggino e seggiolino auto).

Ora il mio bambino ha 16 mesi e sono totalmente soddisfatta della scelta. Ho usato il passeggino sia in città che in ambienti extra-urbani senza alcun problema. Il passeggino è molto confortevole sia per il genitore che per il bambino.


Dopo parecchi mesi di utilizzo posso dire che non pagherei un euro di più di quanto ho pagato per un set passeggino. Un trio di buona qualità non deve necessariamente costare una fortuna.


Una cosa che ho trovato molto utile acquistare insieme al trio è stata la fodera estiva per l’ovetto-seggiolino auto. Ti raccomando fortemente di comprarne una. Quando il tuo bambino è piccolo ti capiteranno sicuramente piccoli incidenti come una cacca che straborda dal pannolino o un po’ di latte rigurgitato, e sarà più facile lavare la fodera che pulire il seggiolino.
