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.

ProsCons

Pros


+ 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 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

Cons


- 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 #1review #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 with no problem.

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.

When my daughter was 3 year old (33lbs and 38in) she still had 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.

ProsCons

Pros


+ User-friendly

+ Incredibly small fold

+ Space saver for small car or apartment

+ Even 5-year-old child fits in it comfortably

+ Perfect for air travel with child

+ Sturdy and made of durable materials

Cons


- Tiny canopy

- Small storage basket

- Seat doesn't recline

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.

ProsCons

Pros


+ 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/p>

+ Basket is easily accessible from the back

Cons


- 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)

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

ZOE XL1 Best 2019
ZOE XL1 Best 2019

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

ZOE XL1 BEST 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 for 3 or even 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 - lightweight stroller
ZOE XL1 BEST has deep recline, adjustable leg rest 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 $200.

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.

ProsCons

Pros


+ 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 or use public transportation with their little one

Cons


- 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. But is a minor drawback.

You should also keep in mind that the seat backrest is rather short (15″), however there are additional 8 inches to the top of the canopy so there is a lot of headroom. However, a tall child won’t be able to use the headrest.

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 a 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 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 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 two hundreds 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!

ProsCons

Pros


+ High-quality

+ Sturdy construction, but not heavy

+ Reasonable price

+ Suitable for strolls on trails

+ Shock absorption on sidewalks, cobblestone and gravel

+ Smooth pushing

+ Slim design for easy steering and turning inside buildings (great for going to the mall or to the doctor's office)

+ Quick and easy folding

+ Feels safe

Cons


- Rather small storage bin

- 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 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 B-Lively 2019

Britax B-Lively 2019 Big Kid Stroller
Britax B-Lively 2019

I love the new B-Lively because it’s a versatile and affordable stroller for bigger toddler, and it’s not excessively bulky. This Britax stroller weighs 20 lbs, so it’s not too heavy for everyday use. It folds up easily with one hand and it’s very convenient to carry if needed and to get in and out of the car trunk – some parents even do it while holding baby in other hand!

Its recommended capacity is 55 lbs and 44 inches, therefore this is a stroller for big toddler. Parents say it easily fits a 3 year old, or even a 4 year old kid.

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 ride. But remember that this is not an all-terrain stroller – but it works amazing as a city stroller.

What I also like about this stroller is its large canopy with mesh peek-a-boo window provides great ventilation. In fact, the canopy on B-Lively has been redesigned and now it gives better protection from sun rays on both sides and from the front (it has different shape than its predecessor – B-Agile).

Britax B-Lively - new redesigned stroller for big toddler
Britax B-Lively has many features that make it great value for money: large ventilated canopy, reclining seat with adjustable leg rest and useful handlebar console

The seat has multi-position recline so you will definitely find the best position for your big toddler in case s(he) still like to nap during the day.

Britax B-Lively offers mesh basket underneath the seat which can hold your essentials. It’s not huge, but should be sufficient for your stuff when you go on a day trip with your toddler.

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-Lively has really impressive amount of positive reviews on Amazon (see for yourself) and it seems like parents really like it! This is one of the best selling strollers in the US. What parents consider as major advantages and disadvantages?

ProsCons

Pros


+ Easy operating and turning even in small spaces

+ Large canopy

+ Pretty lightweight and doesn’t take up much space when folded

+ Smooth rolling

+ Sturdy

+ Easy folding and storage, convenient to transport

+ Deep recline for naps

+ Great for strolling around the neighborhood, going to the mall or for trips to Disneyland

+ Some parents use it even for 5-year-old kids

Cons


- Not good for bumpy terrain

- Storage basket could be bigger

- No cup holder included

Keep in mind

Some parents complain that the most upright position doesn’t feel very upright so the child never sits fully straight.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love Britax B-Lively

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 tall kid (up to 44″).

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

Double strollers for big kids

Do you need a double stroller for big toddlers? Maybe your twins are taller than their peers and you need a stroller with longer seats?

I found on the market few double strollers for bigger kids with high weight limit and seats that can accommodate taller children. Here you will find a stroller that hold up to 100 lbs (or even more!).

Check out my list of the best double strollers for big kids.

7. Baby Jogger 2016 City Mini GT Double Stroller

Baby Jogger City Mini GT Double Stroller - best double stroller for big kids
Baby Jogger City Mini GT Double Stroller

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!”

Vanessa C., 30-year-old mother of two kids

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! Even 4-year-old and 40 inches tall children can comfortably fit in this stroller and rest their feet on the footrest without being squeezed. This is one of the best strollers for tall kids for sure!

ZOE XL2 Best Double Stroller for big kids
ZOE XL2 Best

This is a great double lightweight stroller for big kids, perfect for travel or running errands in the city. The newest model weighs only 19 lbs (WOW!) which is very little for double stroller. Maximum weight recommendation is 50 lbs per seat. Zoe features long seats with 23 inches from the bottom of the seat to the canopy. This big kid stroller can accommodate children up to 3 or 4 years!

Here are few things I like about ZOE XL2 BEST: it has lightweight but durable aluminum frame, it folds easily and quickly. There are two child cup holders, one child snack cup, one parent cup holder and double padded belly bar included for free.

Pushing ZOE XL2 BEST is like a breeze and the wheels roll nicely, but this is not an off-road stroller. It’s great choice for urban parents, who are often on the go with their toddlers.

What other parents think?

10. Britax B-Lively Double

Britax B-Lively Double - with large canopies, specious and easily accessible basket and adjustable handlebar
Britax B-Lively Double

This is a new medium-price double stroller for bigger toddlers with maximum capacity of 50 lbs per seat. It is also a stroller for older children and it can be used up to about 5 years. According to parents who own this stroller, the seat is very roomy with plenty of headroom and big footrest, therefore even a 5-year-old doesn’t slip out of it.

Britax B-Lively Double is also a great stroller for big kid and baby, because you can use it with one infant car seat and one toddler seat.

What other features I like the most? There are large canopies that provide nice coverage from bright light. Each canopy has ventilation panel that doubles as a viewing window, so you can spy on your toddlers during the stroll. Children are well protected from the sun and don’t get hot and sweaty.

The seats have multi-position recline. The lowest position allows children to lay back and take a nap. Under the seats there is also good-sized basket with easy access, where you can fit all your family’s gear. On the back of the stroller there are four pouches that double as beverage holders, which I think is very useful. There are also two zippered pockets for parents’ valuables.

Britax B-Lively Double - new big kid stroller for city use
The new Britax B-Lively Double has many useful features: large canopies with mesh panel, deep recline, big footrest, adjustable handlebar, and 6 storage pockets

Britax B-Lively Double is convenient to maneuver and push, although taking sharp turns may take some practice.

What’s really important is that Britax B-Lively Double is very easy to fold and unfold, and fits in most car trunks. The stroller itself weighs about 29 pounds which means it’s not as massive as many other side-by-side strollers.

However it is 31.5″ wide therefore small doorways and tight alleys may be problematic. Nevertheless, most parents say they don’t experience any problems with getting around with B-Lively Double.

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.

12. BOB Revolution Flex 3.0

BOB Revolution Flex 3.0 - jogging stroller for big kids 2019
BOB Revolution Flex 3.0

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 28.5 lbs and offers maximum capacity of 75 lbs.

It has very solid and sturdy construction which makes this stroller perfect for transporting bigger toddlers. Flex 3.0 has large wheels which work 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 Flex 3.0. 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 large cargo basket and 6 pockets for your valuables. The new model has also redesigned seat that provides nice air-flow and keeps the baby from sweating.

13. Baby Trend Expedition

Baby Trend Expedition Jogging Stroller For Big Toddler
Baby Trend Expedition Jogging Stroller

This is one of the most popular jogging strollers for bigger toddlers, in a low price range. No wonder – it has very roomy seat with capacity of 50 pounds and 42 inches. Although the backrest is not vey tall, there is a lot of head room under the canopy, which ensures long usability. If you tuck it away, even a tall child can fit in.

This stroller is good choice for older kids and heavy toddlers. Based on the opinions of other parents I can say that this stroller can be used for 4-year-old children. Some parents use it for even older kids. This is truly big kid stroller!

There are two big 16″ wheels in the back and one smaller – 12″ in front. Swivel front wheel gives better maneuverability when you’re getting through crowded space, but it can be locked to increase stability on harsher terrain. It rolls smoothly and pushes with minimum effort.

According to many parents the stroller is so easy to operate and turn that you don’t even feel that you’re pushing a heavy toddler in it!

This big kid stroller works fantastic for occasional jogging and everyday errands. Why? Because it has slim design (only 22″ wide), and weighs 26 pounds, similar to standard strollers. It’s slimmer than other jogging strollers and it easily gets through tight spaces.

Baby Trend Expedition - Reclining seat and canopy that ratchets
Baby Trend Expedition has a few features for convenient use: the canopy can be pulled forward – wherever the sun is, there is a good recline for nap on the go, spacious cargo basket and two trays with cup holders included!

Moreover, it has great features for parents convenience: large basket under the seat where you can easily fit all your equipment for exploring outdoors, and a parent console (included!) with two cup holders and covered compartment for your valuables.

The seat is multi-position reclining and has vented top which can be used in fully reclined position – which is really deep and comfortable, in case you 4 year old kid wants to take a quick nap.

The canopy is unfortunately rather small – it has 2 panels and mesh sun visor. However, the whole sunshade can rotate forward to protect baby from low sun and wind.

The biggest problem is that folded stroller is still pretty big, so it may not be very easy to store or transport.

What other parents think?

Baby Trend Expedition is one of most popular and highly-rated jogging strollers on Amazon. Last time I checked. vast majority of customer reviews was 4- and 5-stars! In the table below you can see what features parents consider as assets and flaws. If you’d like to see the opinions for yourself – click here.

ProsCons

Pros


+ Quick assembly

+ Breeze to push

+ The ride is smooth

+ Big storage basket that can accommodate mom’s handbag and baby’s backpack

+ Great parent and child trays included

+ Canopy can rotate forward, depending on the position of the sun (however if you pull it all the way to the front, it leaves the top of baby’s head exposed)

+ According to many parents it’s nothing fancy, but it is all-terrain

+ Some parents use it for 4 year old and up (review #1review #2)

+ Low price

Cons


- Folding in not one-hand and for some parents the trigger is difficult to pull

- Takes a lot of space after folding

- You need to use two pedals for locking the stroller

- Small footrest

- A few parents complain about wheels quality and frequent inflating

Keep in mind

There is no suspension. I would say this big kid stroller is not good for advanced runners. It’s rather for those who like to go for a short jogging session once in a while or like to walk at higher pace. It’s also fantastic as 2-in-1 stroller: regular and jogging stroller in one. Because of a quite hard backrest I recommend it for shorter walks.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love Baby Trend Expedition

1. Thanks to this stroller you can stay active or lose extra pounds, while your kid is having enjoyable and comfy ride.

2. It’s one of the most inexpensive strollers that can accommodate heavy and older children.

3. If you want a stroller for heavy child, for everyday use and harsh terrain, Expedition will satisfy you!

It weighs 33.1 lbs which, to be honest, is a decent weight. Remember that BOB Revolution Flex 3.0 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 Flex Duallie 3.0 for a few months 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 very roomy seats – which can accommodate kids up to 44 inches in height. Each seat offers deep recline, nice truly upright position (something that toddlers really like!) and good ventilation.

Just like the single Flex, 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.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love BOB Revolution Flex Duallie 3.0

1. When we add the weight of the stroller to the weight of two big toddlers, it would make a real beast to control! However this stroller pushes easily and glides like a breeze!

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.

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

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!

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 2 or 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 and that’s really awesome!

As you can see there are a few great strollers for big kids so I’m sure you will find something for you and your kiddo. There are different types of big kids strollers, they have different features, different weight limit and different size of the seat – as all babies and parents have different needs and preferences.

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.

  1. Grandmother :

    Please, perhaps I missed it/them, but isn’t there something available for families that have 2 different aged children that is not a side-by-side ??

    Often, I take only the little one with me, if parents want to go with the older child. A side-by-side is the worst in this case and the whole thing pulls to the side. I would love to see one that has the 2 children front to back. That way I could just use the extra space for the one child and shopping items , OR for the 2 kids at once.
    But all the 2-child strollers I saw were either 1. the side-by-side,
    Or 2. For ONE heavier child.
    My situation is
    – one newborn and one 5 year old. No, the older does not have to ride all the time, but if we walk long distances, the (older child “up to 50#” )- is simply not worth it.
    I believe that the above 2-child scenario is quite common, so are there any good options for those families ?

    Please advise I

    1. Hi there!
      You should check out Baby Jogger City Select LUX with a bench seat. The standard seat would be too small for a 5 year old but you can replace it with a bench seat – it’s perfect for occasional use 🙂 And it can hold up to 65 pounds.
      At the front you can attach a bassinet or standard seat (once the baby can sit upright).
      You can also use this stroller as a single – with just one seat, attached in the middle of the frame.
      The only drawback is that it’s not light (30 lbs).
      I will look for a lightweight tandem stroller and let you know if I find something good! 🙂

  2. Hi, in need of a stroller to take my two littles out and about on my own. Usually I can’t go anywhere alone bc I don’t have a double. I have a 2 year old and a 3 year old both on the heavier and taller side. My 2yo is 36lbs and my 3yo is 50lbs. Is there actually a stroller available for them that I can use longer than a year until they outgrow it? Thanks in advance.x

  3. Going to Disney with a 3 year old and a 6 year old. Considering getting the wagon. Both kids are about 45lbs + each. I am concerned about the comfort of the wagon. Would the 3 year old be able to nap? It is comfy to sit on it? I never really used a wagon before but I could see how it could be a good investment.

    1. Hi Delimar!
      When are you going to Disney? Unfortunately from May 1st stroller wagons won’t be permitted in Disneyland and Disney World 🙁 (see their websites: https://disneyland.disney.go.com/faq/parks/strollers/ https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/en-eu/faq/parks/rules-updates-parks-resorts/)
      Generally speaking stroller wagons are awesome for two older sitting kids and very comfy for day trips. However, if you want both your kids inside, I don’t think there would be enough space for a 3-year-old to lay down and nap. But if your older kid could walk during the younger one’s nap, it should work fine 🙂 Just keep in mind that only Keenz wagon has flat floor (just add a blanket to make it more cushy for the nap time).

  4. Thank you so much for this. I’m looking for a stroller for travelling with my 5.5 yo with special needs. She is 39lb and 43 inches tall. We have the city mini GT and she’s startjng to get too tall for it with the canopy on and it’s also too big for travel. We also have a Maclaren Mark II which is wonderfully light but her legs drag on the ground. I’m debating between a few options and just can’t decide. I wish I could find a comparison chart of all the relevant dimensions (back height, seat height, weight limit and stroller weight). Maybe I’ll have to make my own spreadsheet 🙂

    If you have any suggestions I’d love to hear. I live in rural Canada so I can’t easily test strollers at the store.

    1. Hi Jenny!
      While I was writing this article, I considered dimensions (and checked hundreds of reviews) of over 80 strollers and chose only the ones that have really roomy seat, long backrest and lots of head room, and higher capacity.
      So if your child is already 43 inches tall and 39 lbs you can skip strollers like Baby Jogger City Tour, Babyzen Yoyo+, Mountain Buggy Nano, Cybex Twist or Chicco Mini Bravo… I found only 4 lightweight strollers that are suitable for children over 4 and 5 years old and you can see them in this ranking. Below you can find some of the dimensions, I hope it will be helpful for you.
      GB Pockit – Weight: 9.5 lbs, capacity: 55 lbs. The seat is 12″ wide and about 24″-25″ long. If you look at GB Pockit you will notice that its backrest goes from the bottom of the seat to the top of the canopy, there is no gap between the backrest edge and canopy (the top of the backrest is like a headrest). 24″-25″ it’s a length of a whole backrest.
      GB Pockit Plus – Weight: 13 lbs, capacity: 55 lbs. The seat is slightly wider. Similar to the original GB Pockit it can fit 5 or even 6-year-old kids.
      ZOE XL1 – Weight: 11 lbs, capacity: 50 lbs. The seat is 12.5″ wide, while the backrest is 18″, and there are 8 inches above it to the top of the canopy. For a tall child there is no headrest and their head is above the backrest, but since the canopy is really tall there is a lot of head room.
      UPPAbaby G-LUXE – Weight: 16.3 lbs, capacity: 55 lbs. The seat is 13″ wide, backrest is 20″ long + 6/7 inches to the top of the canopy. However, this stroller folds like an umbrella (narrow, but long), while the three previous strollers fold into a compact box.

      1. Jovvy 360 lightweight jogger is great for bigger kids, I have a 7 year old special need child, and we have since 2016 and it great. Check it out

  5. You did an amazing job on this article!
    Alas, I seem to have a problem that I just can’t find a solution for. My twins are in first grade but still a tiny 40 lbs. each. They both have very long legs and both have Cerebral
    Palsy causing their legs not bend at the knee easily. Neither can walk and trying to push two wheelchairs is a joke. I would also love to go running but the jogger I have no longer contains their non-bending legs and someone’s foot always gets dangerously close to the wheel. I can’t take them shopping. They don’t bend into a grocery cart seats and can’t bend to fit together in the back (except Costco).
    Staying home is getting ridiculous and I find that the twins are becoming anxious and impatient when we do go anywhere. I wish I
    knew someone that could fabricate perfect strollers for me. I can picture it in my mind but don’t know how to go about it.
    Your article gave me the most information I have ever found and I have searched many times. Have you seen the Joovy Quool? Fits 3 kids! (kids that can bend, that is.) Amazing
    stroller!
    Thank you for all your work on this article and for being aware of special needs moms too!!!

    1. Hi Kelly!
      Thank you very much for your kind words.
      I wish that you could find a stroller that fits your family needs… I tried to look for a double stroller with higher capacity and adjustable leg rest (that you could flip up to a flat position), but it seems that it doesn’t exist! 🙁 There are no jogging strollers with adjustable leg rest either.
      Have you thought about a stroller wagon? You would probably have to use it for one child at a time, but for example Keenz 7S wagon has a flat bottom (where the child sits) so it would be more comfortable for your children. It’s not suitable for jogging, but has really good wheels that handle rugged terrain and soon there will be new beach wheels available so it’s a really good option for staying active… Only I’m not sure if it’s possible for you to take only one child for a stroll at a time.

      I’ve heard about Joovy Qool, but I haven’t tested it. I’ve tried other expandable strollers like Vista, Evenflo Xpand, Baby Jogger City Select.

  6. Hi. My daughter will soon turn 4. She is 41 inches tall and around 40 lbs (she’s a tall baby) she has autism and is a runner. So for trips a stroller is needed. I’m debating on these two:
    ZOE XL1 BEST v2 Lightweight Travel & Everyday Umbrella Stroller
    Or
    Pockit Lightweight Stroller.

    Which one would you best recomend? Thanks.

    1. Hi Ruby!
      Both strollers are great for a tall and older child, lots of parents use them for 5 year old kids (or even older) with special needs.
      ZOE XL1 Best v2 has more features for child’s comfort than Pockit. ZOE has super larger canopy that provides excellent shade, reclining seat, it has also bigger wheels than Pockit and comes with 2 cup holders and snack cup. On the other hand Pockit is super tiny when folded (ZOE is also quite compact but Pockit is really TINY) and it’s 1.5 lighter.
      So which one is better? It really depends on what you prefer: more features or smaller fold and weight. I would probably go for ZOE especially that you can find it even under $150 with all these accessories and convenience features.
      Just in case, here are the dimensions of both strollers’ seats:
      Pockit seat – 12″ wide and about 24″ long (it’s a length of a whole backrest, from the bottom of the seat to the top of the canopy)
      ZOE XL1 – 12.5″ wide and 18″ long backrest + 8 inches above it (child’s head is above the backrest, but there is plenty of head room under the canopy).

  7. Hi Zooey, thanks so much for the detailed reviews! These are the features we thought would be good to have:
    – Weight capacity: >24kg
    – Sufficient headroom, leg room, bum room and 5-point seatbelt adjustment for a very tall child
    – Seat can be reclined
    – Stroller needs to be light as my mum struggles with my current 10kg/22lbs stroller
    – Big canopy that shuts behind the headrest or is detachable when the child gets taller than the hood
    – Storage basket can fit a bit of shopping
    – Able to close with one hand
    – Stands on its own when closed
    – Able to steer with one hand
    – would be great if the fabric was comfortable but not too warm as we live in tropical Singapore

    I wonder if you would be able to recommend anything… So far, I’ve narrowed it down to the following six:
    – Baby Jogger 2014 City Mini GT
    – Cosatto Woosh
    – GB Pockit+
    – Britax 2017 B-Agile/B-Lively
    – 2018 UPPAbaby G-Luxe Stroller
    – Maclaren Quest/Techno XT/Techno XLR

    1. Hi Cheryl Ann!
      Regarding your list – from these six stroller I’m not familiar with Cosatto Woosh so I can’t tell you anything about it, sorry 🙁
      How much your baby weighs and how tall is he/she right now?
      B-Agile, B-Livery, GB Pockit +, Maclaren strollers and G-LUXE have capacity of 55 lbs/25 kg, so they are only slightly above the limit you’d like to have. Only City Mini GT has capacity of 65 lbs. Keep that in mind.

      If you’re okay with the capacity, B-Agile may be a good choice, but the canopy is not retractable. Beside this, it has the features you’ve mentioned: the seat reclines and is quite roomy, the basket is sufficient to fit few shopping bags, you can steer it with one hand (on flat terrain) and you can easily close it with one hand. The canopy is breathable which will be useful in a hot climate. B-Agile is great for child up to 40 inches.

      GB Pockit+ can hold an old and tall (some parent use it even for 6 and 7 year old kids) but rather a skinny child. So it depends on how much your baby weighs right now. The US version of the GB Pockit+ is up to 55 lbs/25 kg. But the seat is not super wide. There are also few other features that may not meet your needs: the canopy is really small, the basket is tiny – I wouldn’t recommend it for shopping. And you can’t close it with one hand for sure. One hand steering is also quite difficult, maybe on completely smooth ground.

      City Mini GT (2016, not 2014) is awesome and basically checks all boxes (very roomy seat, perfect for tall child, large canopy, one-hand steering, easy pushing, one-hand fold), but it does weigh 22.5 lbs.

      Among Maclaren strollers only Techno XLR offers one-hand steering because it’s the only stroller that has one-piece handlebar. Folding with one hand is also possible. The canopy is decent.

      G-Luxe doesn’t offer one-hand steering and requires two hand for folding, but it does stand on its own. The canopy is big, seat is spacious, basket is not very big, but can hold a bit of shopping.

      Nevertheless, among these six strollers I would consider two. If you’re okay with the capacity of the B-Agile (55 lbs/ 40 inches) – it’s a good choice, it’s lightweight to operate.

      If you need stroller for even taller and heavier child then I think the City Mini GT is the best among these six strollers and closest to meet all your expectations, except for its weight.

      PS. Frankly, I think it’s quite difficult to find a stroller that would meet all your needs – it’s hard to find stroller that is lightweight, yet able to hold a heavy and tall kid, and that steers and closes with one hand 🙂 Therefore you would probably need to skip some of the features..

      1. Thanks very much for this!

        It’s not that she weighs a lot now, but more of me wanting to be able to use the stroller for a couple of years. Haha… She’s currently 2 years 5 months old. Height stands at 99cm and weighs 14.9kg; so she’s a bit of a beanpole (for now… judging by the family genes, probably not for long LOL).

        I’ll definitely go hunt those two down. xxx

  8. HI I liked your review a lot! I have two children 3 and 1 year olds. We leave in a very cold place with a lot snowing in winter. What would you recommend to me. I like walking even in a cold weather a lot but because it snows a lot here in a winter and I need to care two children itsnoteasy for me. I also would likeif the stroller and wagon fit through the doors if we go to mall or library. I was going to get aVeer but than Iveseen one review on Amazon that it can get very hot in a summer and we have a lot of sun in summer here. So its a struggle for me to get a right stroller for our family. I hope it will be the last stroller or wagon for us^^

    1. Hi Tanya! I can recommend you the Keenz 7S Wagon – it’s 25 inches wide so it fits through standard doorways. But it’s long (like tandem strollers) so it takes practice to get used to it and learn how to maneuver it. It may be quite hard to maneuver it through tight alleys in stores or tight corners, but it’s the same issue with tandem strollers. And with side-by-side double stroller it’s even worse because they are often too wide for that. It has removable canopy, but it doesn’t block the air flow. You can also add side curtains, when kids want to nap or to protect them from wind etc. And it’s suitable for snow too.
      More info about this stroller wagon you can find in my review: https://www.littlebabygear.com/stroller-wagon-big-kid/
      Among strollers I can recommend you BOB Revolution Flex and Baby Jogger City Mini GT Double – but both of them are side-by-side. The former one is 30.5″ wide, the latter one is 29.75″ wide. Although they should fit through most doorways and elevators, they may be too wide for some stores. If the width is an important aspect for you, skip them.
      Another option is Baby Jogger City Select with sibling seat – it’s narrow like a standard single stroller (about 25″), but it’s a tandem, so it’s longer (similar to the wagon). The wheels are also okay for snow (I mean snowy sidewalks or paths, not a very deep and loose snow).
      Oh, and each of these strollers has good canopies, long enough to keep the sun out of babies’ eyes.
      All in all, I think Keenz Wagon would be the best long-term investment for you (capacity of 110 lbs) and it’s really multi-functional 🙂

  9. 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. Car seats: we used the graco nautilus for our son who has always been tall and sturdy. Graco forever all in one is similar. They both extend the tallest of all the convertibles even more then Diono and Britax. Remember that the 5 point harness maxes out at certain weights on all car seats (check your manual). I think it was around 50 lbs that they should switch to the booster with seatbelt forward facing.
      I wish I’d stayed away from Britax as the waist portion seatbelt clips on the stroller are already getting snug on our 2 year old! I’ve heard great things about BOB strollers for big and tall kids.

  10. 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.

  11. 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!).

  12. 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.
