Bugaboo Lynx Stroller
This full-size stroller was designed to be lightweight (only 20.7 pounds) so it's ready for all your adventures, both large and small. You'll love the compact, streamlined design, extendable sun canopy and one-handed push when you travel or bring the stroller on daily errands, not to mention the large under-seat basket, which accommodates 22 pounds of baby gear or groceries. The seat faces either in or out, and the three-position recline works in both settings, so baby can snack or snooze however you like. There's also a spot for older kids in back on an optional wheeled board ($125).
Available at bugaboo.com, starting at $899.
Bugaboo Ant Stroller
True to its name, Bugaboo's Ant stroller is compact and efficient. The travel stroller is lightweight (15.8 pounds) and highly portable, with a compact fold that lets it fit easily in car trunks, on trains and on planes (it's approved for 52 airline overhead bins). In its folded state, you can even pull it behind you like a suitcase through crowded airports or streets. The stroller supports one-handed steering and offers your child a comfortable ergonomic seat that's both reclinable (three positions) and reversible (parent-facing and forward-facing). Add in the footmuff, rain cover and transport bag, and you're ready for every adventure.

This sleek full-size stroller from new brand Mockingbird doesn't miss a trick. It has a one-handed fold and stands upright, so it stores easily in smaller spaces. While on a stroll, you'll appreciate the easy maneuverability, large basket, hidden pockets for valuables, and the peekaboo window that opens quietly so it won't wake a sleeping baby. Zip open the UPF 50+ canopy top to allow more airflow on warm days, and adjust the seat and footrest as needed. The footrest features an ingenius zipper that opens at the bottom so you can easily brush away crumbs and dirt. You can seat baby forward-facing or parent-facing, or attach a car seat or bassinet (sold separately). Pop on the sun cover, rain cover or mosquito net when necessary, and add the foot muff for baby and hand muff for you on chilly days (accessories sold separately). Mockingbird sells direct to consumers through its website, which means cost savings for you. Try it risk-free for 30 days, with free shipping both ways.
Available at hellomockingbird.com, $350.
Bugaboo Fox Stroller
Built to maneuver easily on busy streets or trails and through rain or snow, the Fox stroller provides an exceptionally smooth ride for both baby and you. The seat is reversible to accommodate parent-facing and forward-facing positions, and it sits high to make it easier to get baby in and out of it. Another bonus: The tall seat can double as a high chair at restaurants and park benches. Customize the look of your stroller by choosing the color of the canopy, seat fabric and chassis. Then, add on more design touches and handy accessories, like wheel caps, sun canopy, seat liner, footmuff, parasol, handlebar grips and more.
