Can someone please explain why a stroller can be $100 and another be $700.



I just cant understand why anyone would purchase a $700 stroller, does it rock your child, feed it, read to it and put them to sleep?




Stroller shopping (especially online) has got to be the most frustrating thing.

Mine including the double kit was over $1000. We don't have a lot of choice here and that's pretty standard for a double. The same stroller without the doubles kit is around $800.

I have a double bob and it was over 600$ and nothing at all compares to it. I also bought a pliko three four years ago and it has been a great durable mall stroller for me. I guess if you can afford it and you like it then I don't see any issues.

Yea it felt like I was pushing a bus lol, way too long! And with my daughter sitting over the front wheels It was too heavy to 'tip' up and lift over curbs, and it wouldn't even go over small driveway curbs! Hated it so much lol.
I have a Phil and teds navigator now, love it

Lol I have my older daughter in the front and baby in the bottom, she's only 9months so doesn't have a choice :P
I've only been a stroller addict after having 2 close together, finding the perfect double is hard! Too many options, side by side, tandem, stadium, gah!
My older daughter is 2.5years and I'm trying to teach her to walk nicely. In a few Months I might sell my navigator and buy a mountain buggy swift with a monkey board for her..
