CHOICE Expert Rating

View more details.

Our overall score combines performance (70%) and ease of use (30%). Our test is based on the latest voluntary Australian standard AS/NZS 2008:2013.

Recommended models meet all safety requirements. Some models in the 60-69% range are worth considering if they meet all key safety requirements but fail some minor points (such as finger entrapment hazards). Models we don’t recommend have at least one serious safety failure.

Performance score

View more details.

Our performance score is based on selected tests to the latest Australian standard, AS/NZS 2008:2013 which we think is better at targeting issues around stability and harness safety than the mandatory standard.

Overall ease of use score

View more details.

We rate seat recline functions, using the harness, loading/unloading the basket, using the brakes and manoevring. We fold/unfold the strollers, push them over rough terrain, up and down stairs and through doorways, and even see how well they fit into a car boot.

Ease of adjusting

View more details.

How easy it is to adjust the harness, buckles and seat/backrest positions.

Ease of loading/unloading basket

An accessible bottom container at all seat positions will score well.

How easy the stroller is to push, pull and steer; we take it though doors, up and down stairs and over rough terrain.

Passed key safety tests

View more details.

Based on the Australian standard for strollers, AS/NZS 2088:2013. We check if the harness straps are safe; the child is securely restrained; folding mechanisms are safe and secure; and there are no possible entrapment points for heads, fingers or limbs. We also test the stability of the stroller and that the brakes work well.

Passed durability tests

View more details.

Durability tests are based on Australian standards. Our testers put the strollers on our ‘rolling road’ rig for 64 hours at a speed of 5km/h. All the strollers are also attached to a machine that continuously simulates the action of mounting a kerb. These tests show whether anything breaks, falls off or stops working properly after regular use.
