What Is The Best Stroller For Big Kid?

In this article I present you the list of the most reliable, tested and best strollers for big kids from all brands and top-rated by all parents.

Does your kid grow faster than its peers and has already outgrown your current stroller?

Or maybe your child is 4 or 5 years old but sometimes still wants to ride in a stroller? Perhaps the school is far from your home and your kid is not able to go on foot the whole distance and you could use a stroller sometimes?

Maybe your child is recovering from a surgery or has a medical condition and a stroller for big kid would be useful for you?

No matter what is your reason, I’m here to help you choose the right stroller. Below I present you reviews of 15 big kids strollers and 2 wagons (stroller alternative) with wide variety of features and high weight limit. I hope you’ll find here something that will meet your needs!

Best Strollers For Big Kids

Many of modern strollers have higher weight limit and longer seat, therefore they can accommodate bigger and taller kids, up to 50 lbs or even 75 lbs!

Umbrella strollers for big kids

Umbrella strollers are getting more popular nowadays. They are perfect for travels or day trips, mostly because they are super lightweight and easy to carry (which is extremely important when you’re handling a big kid). They feature compact fold thanks to which many of them fit into carry-on luggage compartment on airplanes.

However, small weight doesn’t mean that they are crappy or less functional. You might also think that umbrella strollers are only suitable for small and light children. Not at all! There are few great models of umbrella strollers for big kids, that provide comfortable and safe ride which is still crucial even for older children.

Here are my favorite strollers for big kid, starting with umbrella type.

1. GB Pockit Plus

My rate:
GB Pockit Plus 2018
GB Pockit Plus 2018

GB Pockit Plus is a great lightweight stroller for big kid and thanks to wider seat (when compared to older model), taller and older children may feel more comfortable in it.

GB Pockit Plus has many upgrades that parents were waiting for, but it remained small and portable. While the stroller is 3.5 lbs heavier than the previous version, it is still super light and easy to carry (only 13 lbs).

Fold size has changed only a little bit (about one inch in each dimensions), so it still takes up a little space and is very easy to store. Stash it under the table in restaurant, put behind the seat in small car – it’s all seamless.

Having such a compact stroller is really awesome, because when your 4 or 5-year-old is rested and ready to walk again, you can throw folded GB Pockit Plus into your handbag.

Although the size and weight changes a little bit, folded GB Pockit Plus still fits into overhead compartment on airplanes
Although the size and weight have changed a bit, folded GB Pockit Plus still fits in overhead compartment and under the seat on airplanes

What I like about this new model is the canopy which was completely redesigned. Now it’s bigger and rounded and actually does the job – it shades the baby from the sun. It’s still not very long, therefore it works best in most upright position.

Another useful feature that manufacturer has added to the new GB Pockit Plus is the reclining backrest. Toddler and preschooler get tired as well and sometimes they like to lie back and rest or even take a nap. Therefore it is very handy to have a reclining seat, especially on longer walks or day trips to Disneyland etc.

Small wheels and tiny storage basket are still there – these feature haven’t been changed. GB Pockit Plus is most suitable for smooth surfaces and you can even push it with one hand on flat pavement or indoor surfaces (like at the mall or airport). Besides, it’s so tiny, it will easily fit and steer through narrow store aisles and crowded airport or museum.

What other parents think?

GB Pockit Plus is quickly getting more and more popular, however there are different opinions about it – some parents love it, some say it’s worse than the original version. If you’d like to check the customer reviews on Amazon on your own, just click here. Below you can see the features that people like and dislike the most.

  • Reclining function – useful for kids who like to nap during strolls
  • Wider seat – more space for bigger kids (even 4 and 5 years old)
  • Canopy keeps the sun out of child’s eyes
  • Easy, one-hand steering on smooth terrain – perfect for city use
  • Small and easy to navigate in tight places
  • Lightweight and effortless to carry
  • Tiny fold – useful for parents who often travel, have small apartment and/or small car
  • Most upright position is not completely straight (If you’re looking for a stroller with truly upright position, I recommend you Inglesina Net)
  • Reclining mechanism (straps and zipper) is not very convenient
  • When the seat is reclined, canopy gives less cover
  • No one-hand folding, the most compact fold takes practice
  • Some parents complain about wobbling (review #1, review #2)

Keep in mind

Similar to the previous version (which has the same wheels and lacks the suspension as well) GB Pockit Plus is not suitable for bumpy terrain.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love GB Pockit Plus

1. Thanks to roomy seat this is a stroller for older & tall kid.

2. It features super tiny fold which fits in mom’s handbag, under the table in the coffee shop.

3. It’s perfect for travels or trips to theme parks with older kids, who walk on their own most of the time, but sometimes like to jump on a stroller and rest a little bit. When the stroller is not in use you can carry it seamlessly.

2. GB Pockit

GB Pockit features tiniest fold in the World
GB Pockit features tiniest fold in the World

This stroller can accommodate child up to 55 lbs. It weighs only 9.5 lbs which makes it the most lightweight stroller for big kids. Moreover, it features tiniest fold in the World! It folds into a small package which can easily fit into hand luggage compartment on airplane or it can be carried in a bag.

GB Pockit is perfect travel stroller for older children. It is design for urban parents who are on the run with their kid. It’s small and light, but very sturdy and made of durable materials, so it can serve parents for couple of years.

My 3 year old daughter is 33lbs and 38in and she still has plenty of room in this stroller. I read many review of GB Pockit and many parents us it for 4 or 5-year-old children. For me it’s the best stroller for older child.

GB Pockit – stroller for older children

This big kid stroller has also a basket under the seat which can hold up to 11 lbs of our essentials. It’s rather tiny but I didn’t expect more from such a light and compact stroller. There are also pivoting and lockable front wheels – swivel wheels increase maneuverability and locked wheels make the stroller more stable which is essential when we are going over uneven terrain.

GB Pockit is also convenient to push and navigate through tight places like shopping aisles, restaurants and crowded sidewalks.

What other parents think?

Before I purchase a stroller, I always check what other parents say about it. At the time I’m writing this GB Pockit has few hundreds reviews on Amazon. Here are the main things that parents praise and complain about.

  • User-friendly
  • Incredibly small fold
  • Adjustable handles (even very tall person can easily push the stroller without kicking the back of it)
  • Space saver for small car or apartment
  • Even 5-year-old child fits in it comfortably
  • Perfect for travel with child
  • Sturdy and made of durable materials
  • Tiny canopy
  • Small storage basket

Keep in mind

Small wheels work fine on flat terrain, but they can get stuck on harsher surface. Moreover, GB Pockit doesn’t have recline seat, only the newest version – GB Pockit+ features multi-position seat recline and also infant car seat compatibility which according to many parents is worth those few extra dollars (see the latest price for GB Pockit+).

3 Reasons Why You Will Love GB Pockit

1. You can throw it in your bag, trunk, closet or bottom of the shopping cart any it won’t take up much space. Real space saver.

2. It is the best lightweight stroller for 5-year-old. It can easily accommodate older child without compromising his comfort.

3. With such a light and compact fold this is perfect travel stroller for big kid. It’s nice to have such a lightweight stroller when you’re handling older and heavier child!

3. UPPAbaby G-LUXE

UPPAbaby G-LUXE 2018
UPPAbaby G-LUXE 2018

This is more expensive lightweight stroller but I decided to include it in my ranking, because it’s made of top-quality of materials and can easily hold 3 and 4-year-old child.

The seat is 13 inches wide and deep and the backrest is 20 inches long which is pretty impressive. Additionally, there about 7 inches extra to the top of the canopy, so there’s plenty of head room. It means that a tall or older child fits there comfortably, but he may not be able to take a nap, because there’s no head support above those 20″. My 4-year-old daughter doesn’t mind it and still like to ride in G-LUXE when she gets tired in theme parks.

Lots of parents have been using previous version of UPPAbaby G-LUXE for kids older than 2. Even a big and tall 4-year-old can comfortably fit in it thanks to very roomy seat (read this review #1 or review #2 for example). The newest version of the stroller – G-LUXE 2018 is great for tall and big kids as well (max. 55 lbs), but additionally it has few upgraded features, therefore I recommend this version, instead of the older one.

UPPAbaby G-LUXE 2018 - stroller for big toddler
UPPAbaby G-LUXE 2018 can accommodate 3 and 4-year-old kid

One of the new features is the single front wheel design which makes the stroller easier to push on slightly uneven terrain like gravel. Of course G-LUXE 2018 is still not suitable for bumps and unbeaten roads, but on flat terrain it pushes smoothly.

The canopy material has been upgraded as well. It has 3 extendable panels and additional pop out sun visor which gives really great amount of shade for the little passenger.

Another useful features like one-hand recline, all-wheel suspension and included cup hold make using this stroller really convenient. Folding takes little practice, but it’s something you’ll get used to. And since the stroller weighs only 16.3 lbs you’ll be able to carry it on a shoulder with included convenient strap.

What other parents think?

UPPAbaby G-LUXE 2018 is for sale since winter 2018 so it’s just getting more popular and there are not many reviews yet (you can check them here). Anyway, below I listed the major features that parents praise and complain about.

Older model of UPPAbaby G-LUXE has over 200 reviews, while the 2018 version is on the market since winter 2018 so it doesn’t have that many customer reviews yet, but I have no doubts it will be getting more and more popular.

Below you can see the main advantages and disadvantages that customers mention for now.

  • One-hand, deep recline – sufficient for toddler’s nap
  • Very spacious seat, comfy for big kids
  • High canopy – lots of head room for tall toddlers
  • Seat fabrics are easy to remove and clean in washing machine
  • Upgraded canopy material, good protection from the sun and wind
  • Fairly smooth ride and one-hand steering on flat terrain
  • Very quiet on indoor surfaces
  • Durable materials and fabric colors
  • Basket is easily accessible from the back
  • Canopy lacks peek-a-boo window
  • Storage pocket on the back has no closure
  • Folding may be difficult and stiff for some parents (read this review for example)

If you would like to check the customer reviews and latest price of the previous versions of UPPAbaby G-LUXE, which is also an awesome big kid stroller, click here.

Keep in mind

This is the most expensive model among lightweight strollers for big kids in this ranking.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love UPPAbaby G-LUXE

1. Although it doesn’t fold up into small box, it doesn’t take up much space and thanks to self-stand it is suitable for small apartments.

2. Thanks to wide, deep and long seat this is a stroller for tall child. And with such a high weight limit, it can also serve as a stroller for bigger kids.

3. UPPAbaby brand is a guarantee of highest quality materials and fabrics.

4. ZOE XL1 BEST v2


This is the cheapest lightweight stroller for big kid in my ranking.

ZOE XL1 BEST v2 folds up and opens seamlessly, so whenever you’re in a restaurant, museum or train you won’t have any problems with closing it and storing. And thanks to compact fold, it takes up a little space and fits even in small car trunks. It is ultra-light (only 11 lbs) which makes carrying it effortless.

It features nicely padded seat with deep recline (up to 165 degrees!) and HUGE canopy. Seriously, it will cover your baby’s knees! The seat is very roomy and there’s lots of head room for tall kids. Some parents use ZOE XL1 even for 4-year-old kids (for example read this review).

The wheels are small, like on other lightweight strollers, and front wheel suspension. I wouldn’t recommend taking this stroller over uneven terrain because it will bounce, but it can handle pavement, sidewalks and indoor surfaces really great.

ZOE XL1 BEST v2 - Recline
ZOE XL1 BEST v2 has roomy seat with deep recline and LARGE canopy

Another great thing about this stroller is the amount of included accessories. It comes with Child Snack Cup and Child Cup Holder, Parent Cup Holder and Belly Bar! And all of that for less than $150.

Find out more about ZOE XL1 BEST v2 in my review.

What other parents think?

I went through the customer reviews of ZOE XL1 on Amazon and here are the main features that parents are happy and not so happy with. Below you can find my short summary, but if you’d like to check the reviews on your own, click here to skip to Amazon.

  • Deep recline, sufficient for naps on-the-go
  • Enormous canopy that fully covers the baby
  • Incredibly lightweight
  • Easy to fold and open
  • Compact fold – great for parents who often travel with their little one
  • Maneuvering is not very easy
  • Small wheels

Keep in mind

I wish the storage basket under the seat were made of stiff material, instead of mesh and I would prefer single action brake. But these are minor drawbacks and other than that, this lightweight stroller is awesome!

3 Reasons Why You Will Love ZOE XL1 

1. It’s an excellent choice for parents on a small budget.

2. It comes with few accessories like cup holders for parent and baby, snack cup and a belly bar – it will let you to save money on accessories!

3. Good fit for 3 and 4-year-old kids, especially for travel and day trips outside the town or to theme parks.

Full-sized strollers for big kids

Lightweight and umbrella strollers are great because they are easy to lift and carry, but sometimes they don’t offer as many features as full-sized strollers do. I found few awesome (and light) standard strollers for older children with higher weight limit and longer seats.

Here are my TOP 3 full-sized strollers for toddlers.

5. Baby Jogger 2016 City Mini GT

Baby Jogger 2016 City Mini GT
Baby Jogger 2016 City Mini GT

It is a great city stroller for big kid with maximum capacity of 65 lbs! This is very high limit as for a standard stroller. City Mini GT is also a very comfortable stroller for tall child. Actually it has one of the longest seat back I’ve found on the market! Even kids over 40’’ fit comfortably in this stroller. Moreover, the seat is nicely padded with plush fabric.

Besides, we can adjust the seat belts height, recline the seat and adjust the canopy to provide more comfy ride for our passenger. There is also a convenient foot rest.

Parents praise this big kid stroller for a large extendable canopy with UV 50+ protection. Thanks to it your toddler can enjoy strolls on sunny days. There is also a peek-a-boo window so you can keep an eye on your passenger.

This is an everyday stroller, great for running errands in the city, shopping with a baby and using public transportation. Moreover, it has awesome all-terrain wheels and thanks to them you can take this big kid stroller on dirt roads or over grass with no trouble. In my opinion this is the best full-sized single stroller for bigger kids.

Baby Jogger City Mini GT is very light and we can carry it in one hand
Baby Jogger City Mini GT is very light and we can carry it in one hand

Baby Jogger City Mini GT has adjustable handlebar which is essential for me, because my hubby is 1 foot taller than me. We can both push it easily. What I also like is the hand-operated brake which gives us maximum control over speed and allows to slow down or stop immediately at any time.

Folding City Mini GT is a piece of cake thanks to patented folding mechanism. You just lift a strap and the stroller folds itself! Then it locks automatically so the stroller stays in that position during storage or transportation. Besides, we can carry the stroller thanks to the strap in the middle of the seat. The stroller itself weighs only 22.5 lbs so it’s pretty light to lift. And once it’s folded it takes less space than many lightweight strollers!

What other parents think?

Last time I checked on Amazon it had over 150 reviews, and majority of them are positive! It’s really popular stroller for big kid. Here are the features than parents praise and complain about the most. I must tell you, it has A LOT of advantages!

  • High-quality
  • Sturdy construction, but not heavy
  • Reasonable price
  • Suitable for strolls on trails
  • Shock absorption on sidewalks, cobblestone and gravel
  • Slim design for easily maneuvering and turning inside buildings (great for going to the mall or to the doctor)
  • Quick and easy folding
  • Smooth pushing
  • Feels safe
  • No cup holder included
  • No storage for keeping essentials at hand

Keep in mind

The most upright position is still leaning back, so the very observant kid can’t sit straight. Another thing is that all accessories need to be purchased separately.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love Baby Jogger 2016 City Mini GT

1. This is one of the big strollers, with roomy seat and tall canopy. Therefore it is an awesome stroller for tall kid or older toddler who still rides in a stroller or for a child with medical conditions.

2. Thanks to all-terrain wheels, slim design and light compact fold, this stroller makes getting around with a toddler super easy.

3. Easy to push for all-height parents, even with a 4-year-old child in the seat.

6. Britax 2017 B-Agile

Britax 2017 B-Agile
Britax 2017 B-Agile

I love B-Agile because it weighs only 18 lbs, which is just a little more than umbrella strollers weigh! It’s recommended capacity is 55 lbs therefore this is a stroller for big toddler.

It has light aluminum frame so it’s very easy to lift and carry. The 3-wheel configuration with dual and swivel front wheel is great for going over city sidewalks and gravel paths.

The stroller is very maneuverable and features really tight turning radius. All-wheel suspension gives you smooth and bumpless ride. What I also like is the brake – it’s not only easy to use but also when it’s engaged, the stroller stands still and doesn’t wobble.

Large canopy with mesh peek-a-boo window provides great ventilation and excellent protection from sun rays. The seat has multi-position recline so you will definitely find the best position for your big toddler.

Britax 2017 B-Agile
B-Agile 2017 is awesome, multi-tasking city stroller for big kid. No wonder it’s Britax bestseller!

Britax 2017 B-Agile offers large mesh basket underneath the seat which can hold your essentials, baby gear, shopping bags and many more. Folding is also very easy, you can quickly close the stroller using just one hand.

What other parents think?

It’s important for me to check what other customers say about the product I’m buying or reviewing. At the time I’m writing this, Britax B-Agile has over 100 reviews and most of them are 4- and 5-star (see for yourself)! This stroller is a best seller in the US. What parents consider as major advantages and disadvantages?

  • Easy operating and turning even in small spaces
  • Large canopy
  • Spacious basket under the seat
  • Great quality
  • Sturdy
  • Easy folding and storage
  • Deep recline for naps
  • Convenient for taller (6’1”) parents (they don’t kick the back of the stroller)
  • No foot rest in the newest model
  • No truly upright position
  • No cup holder included

Keep in mind

Some parents think that adjusting the recline could be better. It’s easy to do, but you need to make sure each side is pulled evenly, otherwise the seat back will be lopsided.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love Britax B-Agile 3

1.  This stroller is very nimble and turns on a dime, which is important when you’re pushing big, heavy kid.

2. If you are looking for the best stroller for 3-year-old child, B-Agile may be excellent option for you, as it can comfortably accommodate 40 inches tall kid.

3. This is one of the cheapest strollers for big toddlers and there are often great discounts on it!

Double strollers for big kids

This one is a great multi-tasking and all-terrain double stroller with weight limit of 50 lbs per seat. The stroller itself weighs 32.6 lbs which is pretty much, but remember it is a double pushchair.

Seat height is 21” which is pretty tall compared with other strollers. I’ve read in other parents’ reviews that even 4 and 5-year-old children fit into this stroller! It’s definitely a big kid stroller.

Baby Jogger 2016 City Mini GT Double has all-terrain rubber wheels which work great on city sidewalks and dirt roads.

Other features that City Mini GT Double offers: adjustable handlebar which provide comfortable pushing for tall and short parents, compatibility with infant car seats, hand-operated brake, individually reclining seats and two large, independently adjustable canopies, each with two peek-a-boo windows.

Oh, one more thing. This stroller has patented folding technology and actually folds itself! It made my life so much easier, when I was recovering from a C-section.

“This is the most versatile and easy to operate double stroller for toddlers I found. Quick and one-hand fold was essential for me during my research, as well as long back rest so the stroller could accommodate my 3 and 4 year old children. This one does it all!”

8. Maclaren Twin Triumph

Maclaren Twin Triumph
Maclaren Twin Triumph

This is one of the best strollers for older children. It can accommodate two toddlers, each up to 55 lbs! It’s really hard to find a stroller witch such a huge weight limit (110 lbs of combined carrying capacity!). Stroller’s basic weight is only 21.2 lbs which is really nice as for a double stroller.

Maclaren Twin Triumph might be actually the only stroller you will ever need, because you can use it from birth (with Carrycot) until you child goes to school!

The seats have multi-position recline so the toddlers can sit upright and watch the surroundings or lay back and take a nap. Dana For2 is convenient to maneuver and turn even in tight spaces. There is also good-sized basket for all your family’s gear and one parent cup holder.

Maxi-Cosi Dana For2 Double Stroller

After folding Dana For2 is not the smallest stroller, but it’s easier to transport and store than many other double buggies. The stroller itself weighs around 35 lbs and is 31.5’’ wide so it fits easily through regular doorways and elevators.

11. Joovy Zoom 360 Ultralight Jogging Stroller

Joovy Zoom 360 Ultralight
Joovy Zoom 360 Ultralight jogging stroller

The newest Zoom 360 Ultralight weighs only 25.7 which is really very little for a jogger. It’s one of the best strollers for older children, thanks to a maximum capacity of 75 lbs and long seat that can accommodate even a 44 inches tall child. Even at maximum load this stroller is still very sturdy and easy to maneuver or turn.

Inside of the seat there are mesh pockets so the toddler can keep there some snacks and other take-alongs.

This jogger has big wheels: 16’’ in the back and 12’’ in front with air-pumped tires. Moreover, the front wheel can be locked straight to increase stability during running or going over bumps. And when the front wheels swivels it gives maximum maneuverability and agility.

Large canopy gives your child plenty of shade while you’re on the go. You can see your passenger through a peek-a-boo window. I like the canopy and the stroller fabrics because they provide great air-flow.

Joovy Zoom 360 Ultralight also includes very practical parent organizer. You can keep your keys and phone in a zippered pocket and even two bottles of water in beverage holders.

And last but not least, Zoom 360 Ultralight is one of the cheapest jogging strollers on the market today! So if you are looking for a jogging stroller for big kid, but your budget is limited, don’t hesitate anymore and go for Zoom 360.

13. BOB 2016 Revolution PRO

BOB 2016 Revolution PRO
BOB 2016 Revolution PRO

In my opinion, this is one of the best single jogging strollers for big kid. I started using it when my daughter was about 8 months old. It weighs 30.5 lbs and offers maximum capacity of 75 lbs.

It has very solid and sturdy construction which makes this stroller perfect for transporting bigger toddlers. PRO has large wheels which works amazing on bumpy terrain like unbeaten paths, cracked sidewalks or sandy beaches.

Rear wheels are 16″ and the front one is 12.5″. The front wheel can be set in two positions: swivel for better agility and locked forward for more stability during jogging on rough terrain. With BOB you can go over the most challenging terrain thanks to amazing suspension system that absorbs all shocks and bumps.

There are two more features that I love about BOB Revolution PRO. It has adjustable handlebar with 9 different position. Therefore I can lower it down and my husband can set it higher for more comfortable pushing. Moreover, this stroller is equipped with two brakes – typical foot-operated parking brake and additional handbrake which is essential for controlling the speed while jogging down the hill.

BOB Revolution PRO is one of the best jogging strollers for big toddlers

BOB Revolution PRO is not the tiniest stroller in the World, but it’s a jogger – large stroller for older child, made for the toughest terrain and it serve this purpose perfectly. Folding size is similar to other joggers’, we can also take off the wheels so the stroller would take less space.

14. BOB 2016 Revolution PRO Duallie

BOB 2016 Revolution PRO Duallie
BOB 2016 Revolution PRO Duallie

Let me introduce you my favorite and absolute #1 double jogger – BOB Revolution PRO Duallie. It can accommodate two children, each up to 50 lbs. If you’re a fan of jogging and have two big kids, this stroller won’t let you down!

It weighs 36 lbs which, to be honest, is a decent weight. But remember that BOB Revolution PRO is really heavy duty vehicle and it works excellent on any type of terrain, seriously, just name it 🙂

I’ve been jogging with BOB Revolution PRO Duallie for a year already and I’ve taken it to the beach, snow, wooded paths and unbeaten roads in the countryside. It always glides like a breeze, no exceptions!

Here are some features I like the most in this jogger. It has two brakes – one foot-operated and one hand-operated which gives you maximum control. Handbrake is very useful especially if you like to jog in a hilly area.

BOB 2016 Revolution PRO Duallie has two brakes, safety strap, large storage backet and two big peek-a-boo windows

Just like the single PRO, Duallie also has 16″ rear wheels and 12.5″ front wheel. BOB features air-filled tires which are great for bumpy terrain. Front wheel locks forward which is crucial when you are going over rough surface. And when it swivels it increases maneuverability which is useful during turning and going through tight spaces.

Thanks to excellent suspension system your toddlers will enjoy smooth ride and won’t get bumped-around. Adjustable handlebar offers 9 height position which is great for all-height parents.

To sum up, in my opinion BOB Revolution PRO Duallie is the best double jogging stroller for big kids. Read more in my full comprehensive review.

Just like the single version, this stroller also has many positive reviews on Amazon (almost only positive!). The main advantages and disadvantages are presented in the table below.

  • Excellent brake system
  • Truly all-terrain wheels
  • Adjustable handlebar
  • Large canopies that provide a lot of room to grow for toddler
  • Parking brake easy to use even in sandals and flip flops
  • Easy to adjust recline

  • Newest model made of thinner material
  • May be difficult to lift and put it the car trunk
  • Accessories need to be purchased separately

Keep in mind

This is definitely one of the most expensive double joggers, but this is the price for ultra sturdy construction and amazingly cushioned ride for two big kids.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love This Travel System

1. When we add the weight of the stroller to the weight of two big toddlers, it would make a real beast to control! Thanks to foot-brake and hand-brake you can always feel safe, no matter if you are going over flat or hilly terrain. 

2. This stroller is strong enough so two kids can comfortably sit in it. It can be also used for kids at different age and weight, because the stroller has excellent weight distribution and doesn’t pull to one side.

3. It has awesome wheels and incredible suspension which allow you to go wherever the adventure is calling you!

15. Baby Trend Navigator Double Jogger Stroller

Baby Trend Navigator Double Jogger Stroller
Baby Trend Navigator Double Jogger Stroller

This stroller is a great option for those who have twin toddlers or two big children at similar age. Each sit can accommodate a child up to 50 lbs and 42″ so this is a real stroller for big toddlers. I’ve read many reviews and found out that some parent used it even for 5 and 6-year-old children (for example: customer review #1#2#3#4)!

As for a jogger it has pretty unusual 4-wheel construction. Front wheels can be locked straight for greater stability or they can swivel which makes the stroller more nimble. Navigator has pneumatic tires like a bicycle. Thanks to them we can jog over uneven terrain.

This stroller comes with a parent tray which is equipped with two cup holders, storage and MP3 speakers! That’s pretty fancy feature. 🙂 According to other parents they are loud enough so you could hear it during jogging without waking your neighborhood.

Baby Trend Navigator Double Jogger Stroller
It doesn’t fold as compact as umbrella strollers, but it FITS in majority of car trunks!

At the back of the seats, just under the canopy there are two mesh windows which provide extra air-flow. This is very useful during jogging on summer days. Seats feature multi-position recline providing very comfortable ride for our toddlers. The canopies can be set in different directions, depending on where the sun is (they retract from the top so that you can pull it down).

Baby Trend Navigator weighs 43 lbs which is quite a lot, but it offers quick and easy folding. When the stroller is folded it has similar size to other double joggers. It will probably take up most of the space in your trunk.

“I love how smoothly this stroller rolls and how easy it is two push, even with my 2 and 3-year-old in it. Yes, this stroller is bulky and heavy but this is how double jogger looks like! It has to be strong to hold two kids.”

Emma R., 26-year-old mother of two boys

What other parents think?

This stroller is beloved by many parents, not only because if its low price, but mostly because of its awesome features. It has over 150 positive reviews on Amazon. Here are the main assets and flaws that parents mention.

  • Sturdy and easy to push with one hand
  • Convenient for jogging with two heavy toddlers
  • Fits through normal doorways
  • Comfortable seats
  • Plenty of storage space
  • Fits in major car trunks of average size
  • Great value for reasonable price
  • Heavy
  • The most upright position is still a little bit reclined

Keep in mind

It is big and heavy like most of the double jogging strollers, but lifting and putting it to the car trunk is doable, even if you’re petite 5’3” woman 🙂

3 Reasons Why You Will Love This Travel System

1. This is one of the most popular double jogging strollers – it is highly-rated by over 180 parents on Amazon!

Stroller Wagons for big kids

Wagon is a great stroller alternative for older kids. Usually it has two seats with a high weight limit and can be used for heavier and older children. Strolling in wagon is so much fun, when two kids can face each other!

However parents should carefully choose it, because there are plenty of poor quality wagons-toys that are rather suitable for play than everyday use.

It can be also used for a child with some medial conditions, and sice the general capacity is 110 lbs it can be used for a longer period. I’ve read that parents use it even for 11-year-old child with special needs and it was a lifesaver, because there was no other stroller that could accommodate such a big boy (find out more in this customer review).

What other parents think?

This wagon is available on the market for a longer time and it’s really popular on Amazon. At the moment I’m writing this, it has dozens of positive reviews (check the current number of reviews here). Many parents mention that they never thought they would have a wagon, but after the first use they love it and it’s super useful for them! Here are the features that parents mention most often.

  • Durable, built to last

  • The canopy and curtain gives full shade and privacy if you need to change a diaper or your kids would like to nap on-the-go
  • Responsive customer service
  • Pretty big fold
  • It takes practice to learn how to maneuver it with the kids in it, especially on the corners

Keep in mind

Folded Keenz 7S Stroller Wagon still takes up much space (like a double stroller), but it fits in majority of car trunks.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love Keenz 7S Stroller Wagon

1. It can accommodate bigger and older children who can’t fit in any other stroller.

2. Perfect choice for parents and children who have active lifestyle.

3. Cruising with this wagon is excellent fun not only for kids, but also for parents.


Most of standard strollers are design to accommodate a baby up to 30 or 40 lbs. That’s understandable if we consider that most of kids ride in a stroller till 3 years, when they weigh about 30 lbs. But every child develops at a different pace therefore sometimes a child can be bigger than its peers or want to ride in a stroller longer than other kids or there can be some medical reasons. Manufacturers respond to those needs!

As you can see there are few great strollers for big kids so I’m sure you will find something for you. There are different types of big kids strollers, they have different features, different weight limit and different size of the seat.

Therefore, no matter if you are looking for a stroller for older children, bigger toddlers or a child with some medical condition, make sure the stroller you picked has the capacity you need and other features that will fulfill your family’s needs.

Remember that it’s not safe to use a stroller for a baby that exceeds the weight limit, because the stroller is less stable then and it might easily tip over or broke. Not to mention that it’s not comfortable for a child when he/she is hitting the canopy with his/her head or his/her feet touch the ground during a stroll.

12 thoughts on “What Is The Best Stroller For Big Kid?

  1. My granddaughter is 3yrs old, she is 50lbs and the size of your average 6yr old. We are struggling with carseats that still have 5 point harness as well as a stroller for her. We have a joovy. Her feet drag the ground.

    1. Hi Julie! What model of Joovy do you have?
      For a tall kid GB Pockit (both original and Plus model) and UPPAbaby G-Luxe are great choices, each has long backrest and lots of head room.

  2. Hi! Love your reviews, but haven’t found what I need yet. I have a 3 year old that weighs 25 lbs (petite) & a 5 year old who weighs 50lbs. I think I want a single stroller for mainly my 3 year old…but either a skateboard or add-on extra seat, or sit & stand style for the 5 year old (who will want to hitch a ride when we do Disneyland or Zoo trips). What would you recommend? I had a single Bob and LOVED it (but lost it…and I don’t think they make attachments for 5 year olds for it…do they?) Thanks in advance!

    1. Hello Jessica, sorry for late reply.
      There are no additional attachments for BOB strollers unfortunately. You should consider Baby Jogger City Select LUX with an additional bench seat that can hold up to 65 lbs for your 5 year old. They have also standing board in their offer, but it’s only up to 45 lbs… most standing boards made by stroller brands are up to 45 or 50 lbs, maybe consider purchasing an universal board with higher capacity?
      Stroller wagon is also a great solution for Disney and Zoo trips and it can easily hold 5 and 3 year old:)

    1. Hi Karen! Baby Jogger City Mini GT offers really deep recline and the seat is very roomy, with long backrest so it will serve you even for few years. Some parents use it even for 4 or 5 year old kids. This stroller is good choice if there are cracked sidewalks in your neighborhood or if you like long distance strolls in parks, on grass and other more “challenging” terrains. The wheels and suspension are really good. You can check this stroller here.

      If you need something more compact, for example for travel you may want to consider ZOE XL1 Best (but only the version 2) which weighs only 11 lbs and folds up very compact. The seat reclines up to 165 degrees and there is large canopy that covers the baby even when the seat is in lowest position. Perfect for summer. But this stroller is mainly for flat surfaces. It has small wheels so it wobbles more on uneven ground.

  3. Joovy Caboose Ultralight Graphite Stroller
    Baby Trend Sit N Stand Ultra Stroller
    Have you ever looked at these for bigger kids? Particularly interested if the traditional seat can accommodate 4-5 year olds. The Sit/Stand looks versatile enough.

    1. Hi! Sorry for late reply.

      Let’s start with the Joovy Caboose – it’s nice, lightweight option for bigger kids and it works perfect on city terrains, grass and hard-packed gravel (but don’t take it over sand or loose gravel). You can use it with one normal seat + bench seat or add second normal seat (it’s sold separately). Both your kids should fit in it but keep in mind the weight limit for each seat is 45 lbs, moreover the height limit is about 40” for the front seat and 44” for the rear seat. Another thing is that when you recline the front seat, the child in the rear seat will have less room. Therefore this stroller probably won’t serve you very long and your children are probably close to height and weight limit. However I’ve read that some parents use it occasionally for 4 and 5 year olds, e.g. in Disneyland.

      Baby Trend Sit N Stand is a bit different – it has one normal seat, bench seat and a standing platform. You cannot add second normal seat, so one of your children would have to ride on a bench seat (no back support) or stand on the platform. The weight limit is slightly higher (50 lbs per seat), but the height limit is 40”. From what I’ve read parents usually use this stroller up to 4 years, so I’m not sure if there’s enough room for older kids.

      One more thing: Even if both strollers fit 4 or 5 year olds, they will have their heads above the seat back. You can also remove the canopy from the seat (on both strollers) if needed.

      If you’re looking for a stroller for two older kids, you may want to consider wagon as well. It is more heavy, but it would serve you much longer (some models may even fit 11 year old!).

  4. Thank you for this.
    You just did weeks of research for me. I have a special needs boy, 3 years old, and in need of a smaller stroller.

    1. Hi Norma, I’m very happy to hear that my ranking was helpful for you. 🙂 If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to write to me, take care!

    2. Hi I am looking for a stroller to take my 4 year old to Disney. I need something with a tight fold for the tram but that can be used when he is bigger as well.

      1. Hi Kim!
        GB Pockit and GB Pockit+ offer the smallest fold in the World and can accommodate even a 4y.o. child. However folding mechanism isn’t the easiest one, but it something you get used to. Another great lightweight stroller with compact fold in UPPAbaby MINU which folds up with one hand into a compact package. It has quite roomy seat (with about 25 inches from the seat bottom to the top of the canopy). Another stroller that will fit your 4y.o. kid is UPPAbaby G-LUXE which has 27 inches from the seat to the top of the canopy. However it doesn’t fold up into a package, but has umbrella type fold (compact, but very long). MINU and G-LUXE are a bit heavier than Pockit and Pockit+, but they also feel more stable and sturdy and have more strong wheels.
