What to Consider When Purchasing a Toddler Pushchair

Baby and toddler shopping can be very exciting. When it comes to things you will need for your little one, something like a stroller is a very personal choice. This is why deciding on a toddler pushchair is important.

When your baby reaches toddlerhood, your travel system for your infant should last you for several years to come. This is unlike your pram, which will be your first travel device and only suitable for newborns, as they should lie flat most of the time.

One thing is for sure: you have to choose a pushchair system that will fit into your lifestyle and be suitable in all areas of your life. It is an investment for many, and this is why we bring you this blog post.

If you are looking for tips on what to consider when purchasing a pushchair for your toddler, then continue reading to learn all this and more.


Pushchair or Stroller?

Your second-stage pushchair is going to be a device that is the next purchase from your pram, which is only suitable from birth and at newborn age.

The second-stage pushchair that you buy after your pram should be lightweight yet strong and durable. This is the time when you will show your little one the world for the first time and do lots of exploring together, so your device has to be able to withstand all that life can throw at it as well as be convenient and hassle-free to manage.

Pushchairs and strollers are both excellent systems to use for your little one at toddler age. They are both folding travel devices and have many similarities, including age-appropriateness. Both pushchairs and strollers are suitable for children from around 6 months to 3 or 4 years old. This makes both models ideal for your toddler.

Pushchairs are essentially folding seats on wheels; they are for toddlers and young babies when they learn and become strong enough to hold up their own heads. Some models of pushchairs can be used from birth if they recline to a fully flat position. Although they tend to be outward-facing, which many parents do not prefer over parent-facing when their babies are newborns. Parent-facing means parents can keep a close eye on their newborn and tend to their every need.

On the other hand, strollers are extremely lightweight. They are often one of the easiest models to carry around when folded, and they are extremely compact when in their folded position. Strollers are a great addition to your life if you have a toddler.


What to Consider When Purchasing a Toddler Pushchair

Every family is going to be different and have different needs. There are so many devices out there that are suitable for toddlers.

Below are some of the things to consider when shopping for and looking to purchase a toddler pushchair.


Can Your Toddler Walk?

If your toddler is walking, then that is great, but as you may know, little ones' feet and legs do get tired from walking and being so small. This is why having a versatile stroller that can be folded up and down easily is ideal.

Strollers are designed for moments like this, so having one that can be easily collapsed and unfolded would be ideal for your family and your toddler.

Easily carry your stroller in the folded position or wheel it along as your little one travels about on foot and explores. Once your toddler becomes tired, they have a safe and comfortable place to rest and even have a little nap if they need to.


Outwards Facing

The toddler age is a special time in your little one’s life. They will be at that curious age where everything is so new and exciting for them; toddlers just want to take it all in.

Having a pushchair device that is outward-facing instead of parent-facing is much more ideal for your little one at toddler age. They will appreciate being able to view everything around them, and it can help them learn new things about the world, which can help with their development.


Reclining Seats

We know that little ones need time to nap and rest. Having the option to recline your pushchair's seat fully or partially will help to keep them comfortable and allow them to nap.



A compact device will come in handy more than you realise. Opt for a pushchair or stroller that is compact when you have a toddler, as they will be in and out of their device, so you are likely to fold and unfold it many times.

A compact device also makes the perfect travelling companion when going anywhere on holiday. Whether you are planning on going abroad or closer to home, you can fold and store a compact stroller anywhere - in car boots, loading onto public transport, or even onto the cabin part of an aeroplane.

When not in use, you can also stash your stroller in the smallest of places for a tidy house and neat storage when you are at home.



The last thing any parent wants or needs is a heavy stroller device when exploring anywhere as a family with their toddler. A heavy device can be limiting, make many more tasks a struggle, and add unnecessary hassle.

A lightweight device will be the most convenient for you when taking your travel device anywhere. A lightweight stroller will not get in the way.


Pick Your Perfect Stroller

There you have it, whatever your daily lifestyle looks like as a family, or where you like to take your family holiday. Think about the points above and how you will get from A to B with your toddler, making a well-informed decision on your toddler pushchair from there.
