Based on 10,529 analyzed reviews

NerdWallet Shopping’s scoring of the best double strollers is based on our analysis of the opinions of experts and shoppers like you.

Choosing a stroller takes careful thought and consideration — after all, your baby’s safety while you’re out and about is important. We researched some of the most popular models on the market to help you decide.

To narrow the field, we looked at expert opinions from review sites such as The Sweethome, CNET and Good Housekeeping. We then analyzed user reviews to get their opinions on each stroller’s best and worst attributes.

We recognize that consumers look for different qualities in strollers, so we scored these user observations based on a handful of features, including ease of use, weight, safety, accessories and more.

Our analysis

Our final stroller scores run from a low of 1 to a high of 10. Here’s how we came up with the numbers:

Overall score: This score shows reviewers’ overall satisfaction level with the stroller as a whole across 13 criteria, including functionality, ease of use, maneuverability, accessories and durability.

Functionality: This score, which also factors into the overall score, reflects reviewers’ satisfaction with the stroller’s level of functionality, in particular how it relates to the baby. Categories that factor into this score include: comfort, safety features and noise level. We isolated functionality in particular, as it’s one of the most important features when selecting a stroller.

Ease of use: This score, which also factors into the overall score, indicates reviewers’ satisfaction with how easy it is to use the stroller. Categories that factor into this score include: ability to fold the stroller, the stroller’s weight and its maneuverability. We isolated ease of use in particular, as it’s one of the most important features when choosing a stroller.

These strollers are our top picks, ranked in order of overall score.
