From the moment you bring your baby home, to when s/he starts to walk around and climb your furniture, a stroller, buggy or pushchair is an essential accessory for when being on the go. In infancy, the regular stroller, which was often used at the beginning as a place for your child to sleep, plays only a minor role for little explorers, which is why it is recommended to think about purchasing a buggy or pushchair as soon as your little one takes the first steps and explores the world on their own. Compared to strollers, buggies and pushchairs can be transported and manoeuvred much easier due to their low weight, both when folded and unfolded. Whether on the playground, on the road or in the car – buggies and pushchairs can easily be taken along in a small space at any time, so they are always ready for use whenever they are needed. Even if your child gets tired when being out and about, a buggy or pushchair stands out at as a loyal companion as it usually also features an adjustable backrest with resting position.
Most top brands, such as Britax Römer, Babyzen or Quinny, offer models that are either better suited for city life or rural living. That's why you should always consider where you go for most of your trips and strolls before you buy a model. No matter if you frequently use public transport, if you prefer off-road adventures with your child, or frequent long-distance car rides – in order to find an ideal companion, we recommend you to choose a buggy or pushchair that suits your baby's needs and your lifestyle best.

In terms of these core properties, it is definitely worth testing different models, if possible. For example, you can make a list of questions or characteristics that are important to you and work your way through it for making the right choice.
Often you can already get most of the accessories with the buggy or pushchair together in a practical set. If this is not the case, you can upgrade or expand your new companion with the necessary accessories. Very important accessories are a rain cover or a sun canopy (some are equipped with a UV protection and mosquito net) or an additional sunshade. For the cold season, it is advisable to buy a footmuff, so that your little one is always cuddled up and feels warm. Many parents also buy toys that can be attached to the play bar – this is particularly convenient for keeping your child busy, but also a cute eye-catcher when you're on the move.
