The Best Strollers For 2018 – Complete Guide

Picking the right stroller is definitely a tough thing to do, I’ve been there. There are are hundreds (if not thousands) of possible choices and it’s easy to become confused. Especially minding the fact that the companies try to improve their products each year, so the same model from 2018 may be quite different from the previous one.

New and Best Strollers Of 2018

You don’t want to regret your choice so you look to pick the best stroller  for your baby’s comfort (and yours too, believe me), but the number of strollers is overwhelming? I’m here to help! Check the top5 strollers for 2018.

1. Nuna Demi Grow 2018

The Nuna Demi Grow 2018 stroller is a fancy new double stroller, capable of accomodating two kids – whether they are twins or close-age siblings. It carries two full-sized seats, bassinets or baby car seats at a time. The seats have the same size, the weight limit has been set at 50lbs.

The Nuna’s canopy is really impressively big. It has a nice sunvisor and a drape that may be pulled out. This stroller is suitable for newborns thanks to the fact the recline may go to a fully flat position. One of many impressive things in the Nuna Demi Grow 2018 is the seat liner. If you zip it off, you will see there’s a mesh seat below. This will be great during summer for sure.

Nuna Demi Grow 2018

The number of possible configurations: 23. Simply amazing, the Demi grow may be used as a single, double (or twin!) stroller to fit any kind of situation or needs. Nicely done, really.

The Nuna Demi Grow 2018 has an adjustable handle bar and leg rest. You can easily swing away the bumper and the folding process is really easy too. It has an auto-lock option and a standing fold.  Wheels are foam-filled and work great with the all-wheel suspension, providing a great riding experience. Last, but not least – the basket is extremely large, so it will easily fit whatever you need to take with you, even a big bag of diapers.

Double: This stroller comes with a nice feature of compatibility with all Pipa baby car seats produced by Nuna. If you’d like to make the Nuna Demi Grow 2018 a double, just attach the car seat, using one of the adapters that come included.

Twin: The Nuna Demi Grow 2018 includes a stroller seat, but you can buy a Sibling Seat seperately  to make it a great twin-stroller. There are two baby car seat adapters included, so you use the Pipa baby car seats to cart your twins right away.

The Nuna Demi Grow 2018 packs a bunch of great features like:

  • A DreamDrape – one of the things that made Nuna famous, completely covering the baby to give it the comfort and privacy it needs during a nap.
  • UPF 50+ canopy, which may be removed or extended with an eyeshade which may be flipped out
  • Simple, adjustable (three positions) recline, one-handed
  • Breathable mesh and outstanding fabrics, making this one an all-season

The comfort of your toddlers is highly important, but you’d surely wish to get some too and that requires a smooth riding experience. The Nuna Demi Grow 2018 tires are foam-filled and cooperate perfectly with all-wheel suspension, making the ride smooth wherever you are. The fenders will protect your little ones from any kind of dirt, and at the same time the wheels are protected with hubcaps.

Nuna Demi Grow 2018 Black

If you see the Nuna Demi Grow 2018 somewhere around you, you should notice an important difference between this one and most of the inline double strollers that usually have the secondary seat in front. Here, the seat is placed behind the primary one. This makes things quite different, because the stroller is shorter this way, so pushing it will be a lot easier. Pushing one or two babies in this one won’t give you a heart attack, but rather leave you with some extra energy. Any mother will agree on this – we can use up anything that’s left. 🙂

Other features of the Nuna Demi Grow 2018 worth mentioning:

2. UPPAbaby VISTA 2018

Critically acclaimed UPPAbaby VISTA got even better in this version. The UPPAbaby VISTA 2018 goes forward with new features. Its bassinet got extended, the stroller got itself some accents from genuine leather and you can choose one of many great colors. I have to say that the previous version of this versatile stroller was great already, but UPPAbaby managed to make it even better now.

In terms of functionality, the UPPAbaby Vista 2018 is almost identical with the 2017 model. So what makes it different and puts on a bigger smile on my face?

UPPAbaby VISTA 2018

UPPAbaby VISTA 2018 colors

The UPPAbaby VISTA 2018 now shines thanks to three, wonderful new colors. We also have a comeback here, Denny Red from 2015 is available once again.

Feel the luxury

All the current Vista models have a handlebar and bumper bar covered with genuine leather, while the details in 2017 version details were made with foam. All 2018 strollers have silver frames, except the Jake Black that has a black frame.

The leather used in all color versions is top-quality.  Full-grain cow hide leather has been used and tanned without using any chemicals to get the REACH certificate and meet the strict EU regulations. I simply admire it! It looks amazing, classy and has a great touch you will love while pushing this stroller. Absolutely outstanding.

More updates of the UPPAbaby VISTA 2018

Small changes make a huge difference. Apart from the leather details, the UPPAbaby VISTA 2018 got another important update, the extended bassinet, which is bigger than the one seen in the previous model. The bassinet was narrower on the bottom before, but now it has the same length. This change allowed to add more or less 2.5 inches and I really love it. Why? It will fit your baby for a longer time. Usually it’s 4 or 5 months, but this change allows to nearly double that time (of course this depends on your baby’s size).

More important changes of the UPPAbaby Vista 2018:

  • The 2017 version had a carbon-coated frame. The current one has a powder-coated one that minimizes scratches and keeps your stroller looking great for a longer time
  • The UPPAbaby Vista 2018 front wheel was upgraded so it matches the rear one now when it comes to tire shape. Also, both tires have a new tread.
  • The handlebar is now easily replaceable if it gets worn out.

Even more new features:

  • NEW! Easy, intuitive one-step folding, reminding the CRUZ folding
  • NEW! One-piece bumper bar easy to keep it clean
  • NEW! Impressive number of configurations: two forward and rear facing, reclining baby seats, two MESA baby car seats, double bassinet, and many, many others that will suit any need
  • UPDATE: Bassinet has a zip out liner, making it easy to clean after removal. Same goes for the boot cover. The mattress pad is perforated, white the ventilated base improves breathability. The canopy is vented too and has a SPF50+ sunshade that may be extended
  • UPDATE: The stroller is made with a combination of magnesium and aluminium that make it light and durable at the same time.

UPPAbaby VISTA 2018 White

Pros:

  • Multiple seat configurations, the UPPAbaby Vista 2018 will adapt to any kind of family situation and grow with your baby
  • Possibly the best bassinet seen this year – extra vented, great sun and wind shielding, extended by 5 inches making it even more spacy and extra comfortable
  • The recline is one-handed and the canopy on the baby seat is just super big
  • Quick and easy reconfiguration of the seat in a matter of seconds
  • Huuuuge basket capable of carrying some really serious weight – carrying two bags of diapers at once won’t be a problem

  • Glides like a charm
  • The handlebar may be adjusted making it suitable for parents of any heigh

You can build your stroller in so many ways that you will definitely find a build that will suit all your needs with no compromises. You’ve got three types of fabric to choose from: Core, Premium or Signature, varying in price. Actually, there are so many options to build this one, it’s possible to become confused. Bugaboo helps here as there are three preconfigured options available, prepared on the basis of top picks. All the parts may be easily changed when needed – between the seasons or when you have another baby.

Bugaboo Fox 2018

I really like Bugaboo’s approach to ecology. Recycled materials have been heavily used for the production of the new Bugaboo Fox 2018. It’s important to care about the planet, I don’t want my kid to live in a world full of waste. As an example: if you decide to get a single color canopy, here’s a nice fact – it’s fabric has been made from 92 recycled PET bottles.

Bugaboo Fox 2018 – all about comfort

The ergonomy of the seat and the bassinet is really outstanding, providing the highest comfort level.  Really spacy when it comes to size with a padded top of the pillow give your little one the ultimate comfort during a nap while you’re pushing this stroller. The Bugaboo Stand provides the possibility of using the bassinet for overnight sleep. It’s also a great feature that the bassinet may be converted into the seat and the other way round). One-hand recline is really convenient and easy to use. There’s more for your comfort – the handlebar may be adjusted with ease to suit any parents height.

One more AMAZING feature – the Bugaboo Fox 2018 folds into ONE PIECE and may be folded while the bassinet (or seat) is attached. The unfolding process is also very convenient. The Bugaboo Fox 2018 has the auto-lock options and stands folded. You’ll also find a big basket to carry around the things you need, an easy to use brake (even if you’re wearing flip-flops), a spacy canopy or a swing-away bumper bar. Note that, the handlebar is not reversible like the one found on the Cameleon, but it’s not a big thing.

I have to put it straight – I’m almost sure the Bugaboo Fox 2018 will be one of the top-selling strollers.
