The vast majority of us don’t need an All-Terrain stroller. Considering they are heavy, cumbersome, and have those annoying air-filled tires that constantly have to be pumped, they’re just too much hassle unless one of the following phrases describes you:
1. I walk on the beach at least once a week.
2. I park my snow boots at the door.
3. My walks are across fields and through woods. Sometimes there’s a trail.
4. We live on a long, gravely road.
5. I have a walk a lot where I live–on bumpy roads, cobblestone, dirt paths–and baby gets bounced around a lot.
If you answer yes to one of these questions, an all-terrain stroller is a good bet you for. In fact, the typical full sized or umbrella stroller will probably just keel over at the sight of you. On the other hand, buying an all-terrain stroller for walking in the mall and around your paved neighborhood is like driving an Army tank to the grocery store. You’ll be much happier with a sweet lightweight stroller that you can throw in and outta the car with a flick of the wrist.
All-terrains are available in singles and doubles, triples, and quads. Some reliable names are:
- Baby Jogger
- Swinn–a budget friendly option
- Joovy–another budget friendly option
- Mountain Buggy

As always, the search continues for the perfect stroller.
