If there is one thing I know too much about, it’s picking the best pram.

This is because I used to own a website all about prams. Meaning I spent a lot of time researching and trying out the best options.

It also meant I became semi-obsessed.

For baby number 1, I had one pram. When baby number 2 came along, we got a second pram but only because we needed a double (baby number 1 was just 1 at the time).

For baby number 3, however, who came along after I worked on the pram site, I have 4 prams.

Yep 4.

This is because the more I knew about prams, the more I realised that there is no perfect pram. There are just perfect prams for different occasions.

How to choose the Best Pram Australia 2021

find the best pram for walking below with the best pram australia 2021

Working out how to choose a pram can quickly become complicated as there are many things you need to consider. You need to consider your child’s individual requirements and your own lifestyle needs.

Your everyday pram will require much more consideration than a simple umbrella pram and other cheap prams that you will keep in the boot.

Note: The top pram is going to the safest one, and this depends entirely on how you use it. To ensure you’re using your pram correctly, read the tips about pram safety here.

Try and consider the following things when looking for an ideal pram.

1. What is the purpose of the pram?

The single most important question you need to ask yourself is this – besides pushing your children around, what is the purpose of the pram?

Are you an active parent that wants to push the pram while jogging? Are you an avid traveller that needs a pram portable enough for travel? Knowing this will help you find a pram closer to meeting your needs.

Single/double prams

Generally speaking, knowing a pram is a single or double stroller doesn’t give anything away other than the number of seats. Within both single and double categories are a range of prams ranging from lightweight umbrellas to heavy-duty joggers or the best double pram for walking – and everything in between.

find a pink baby pram for girls below with best prams australia 2021 and best baby pram 2021 australia

The average single/double pram is one designed for everyday use. They are strong and sturdy enough for regular use and  will usually have more additional features as standard than small prams and other cheap prams for sale. They are also more costly and heavy than lightweight prams.

While single prams always have a single seat (and sometimes the option for a bassinet or capsule to be attached), double (or twin) prams have two seats either sitting side by side or one in front of the other.

If you are looking for the best best double pram Australia 2021 because you are having twins, note that many doubles are not suitable for two newborn babies. You will need to be sure that any double you look at purchasing it.

Other types of prams

It’s worth noting that there can be some crossover between the type of pram.

One pram can potentially be multiple types so when you are looking, remember that a pram can be more than one type. For example, you can find double jogger prams or umbrella style travel prams.

Below are some common types of prams…

Umbrella – An ultra-lightweight pram, an umbrella pram is compact and folds up in a similar way to an umbrella. They can be used in addition to your everyday pram and are best suited for keeping in the boot for quick trips and will have fewer features than a pram intended for everyday use. They are often called strollers or baby strollers instead of prams.

Jogger –the best jogging pram is designed for active parents that want to jog/run with their baby, or if you’re looking for off road prams Australia. They usually have larger, lockable all-terrain wheels for pushing your baby at speed. They feature better suspension making them easier to push and usually have larger wheels. You can find joggers in both singles and doubles. These are also a good choice if you live somewhere where you need to walk on all terrains or want an off road pram. Note, you shouldn’t jog with your baby until they reach 6 months old.

Travel Stroller – A portable pram in between a single and an umbrella. Because it is used regularly, the best travel pram needs to be stronger but still retain the lightweight and portable elements of an umbrella pram. They are designed to fold up as small as possible and be as lightweight as possible. Some can even be taken on planes as hand luggage!

2. Age/weight of the child

the best pram for newborn to toddler depends on their weight

The age and weight of your child isn’t just a concern for the longevity of your pram, it’s also one of the top safety concerns. Getting this wrong is not an option.

Certain prams are not suitable for newborns, such as many joggers and prams that don’t have a 180-degree reclining seat. It’s especially important you take this into consideration when looking for the best baby strollers.

Prams can differentiate quite a bit in this maximum weight and height capacity – especially for doubles where the maximum weight can be the same as a single.

Assess your needs and ensure the pram can handle it.

3. Weight of the pram

Although lightweight can be great, it’s not always the better option.

Prams come in a variety of different weights depending on the type of pram and the features it has. Most everyday single and double pram wheels feature decent wheel suspension which means you’ll require less effort to push the pram. This offsets the weight although you can still find some relatively lightweight prams in this range.

The most lightweight prams of all, such as ultra-lightweight umbrella prams, can lack suspension which means they actually become a whole lot more difficult to push and are definitely not the best pram for newborn babies.

It’s worth analysing when you compare strollers whether you will spend more time transporting it (such as travelling where portability is essential) or more time pushing (where portability is more of a preference than an essential) when deciding this.

4. Additional features

Again, this highlights the need to understand the purpose of the pram when comparing the best strollers Australia 2021.

As the ideal pram for you will be dependent on your lifestyle needs, the additional features you require will be individual.

For me as with many other travelling parents, a travel bag is essential.

For most parents, this includes things like cup holders for both parents and child, a parent organiser tray, an under basket for storage and the ability to use the pram as a travel system – although the list goes on.

You will also want to consider if you want a pram that turns into a travel system. This means you can add a capsule which can also be used in the car. This is perfect if you want to be able to transport baby easily from the car to stroller without ever needing to wake them.

A bassinet can also be a worthwhile addition for infant prams. This gives baby a great place to sleep. Many options for the best baby stroller Australia will requite a bassinet or a capsule to be suitable for use from birth.

new baby prams will have the latest features

5. Design

Wheels – Wheel size determines a lot, such as whether it’s going to be the best pram for off road. The most important things to consider with the wheels are the size, whether they are swivel wheels or locked into place and whether or not they are ones that require air. Generally, the larger the wheels, the better equipped it is for rougher terrain on good prams, so ideal if you are looking for an off road pram Australia.

Seat recline – Do you need a reclining seat? If so, how much? There are two things to consider here – the first is that a seat that reclines fully flat is one essential element of a newborn pram. If you’re looking to use the pram from birth, this isn’t negotiable. The second is whether or not you can see your baby sleeping in the pram. For an everyday pram, a flat or near flat recline works nicely for this.

Basket – There’s no denying that a storage basket is a handy feature to have, but there are both pros and cons to having a larger one – namely that the size of the pram can increase quite substantially. You can find prams with storage on the rear of the seats, and while this can be limited, it can be a good alternative to the harder to reach basket under the pram.

Frame – The sturdiness of the pram is dependent on the frame. It’s an essential part of good baby prams and can be harder to judge, which is why it’s essential to read pram reviews to see how the pram holds up, especially if you need the best walking pram Australia has.

Appearance – It can seem almost trivial, but a good design is still important as often your pram can inadvertently become an accessory! You can find prams in a variety of colours to suit you, as well as models ranging from sporty to traditional. Of course, features come first, but getting something you like to use can make it all the more enjoyable to use!

Prams, Strollers, Buggies?? What is a Pram?

Before I get into the best stroller in Australia reviews below, let’s quickly remove any confusion about what all these terms mean.

Basically, they are interchangeable. A baby buggy is a pram is a stroller (or baby stroller) is a baby carriage is a pushchair. In Australia, stroller is more likely to refer to an umbrella stroller or some types of lightweight, compact prams. In the USA, they generally use the word stroller instead of the word pram.

Any of these terms can mean the same thing, however, and you may find them used interchangeably in these baby stroller reviews.

Top Pram Reviews 2021

Now that you know what you should be looking for, you can read our reviews of the top prams 2021 that were listed in the pram comparison Australia chart above. These are the most popular prams of 2021 so that you can find the best pram to buy.

Top Single Baby Pram Reviews 2021

BOB Revolution Pro Review

The BOB revolution is one of the best affordable prams I've owned in this list of best strollers 2021 Australia

Rating: 4.5


  • Type: Single
  • Suitable From Birth: Yes (with additional capsule or bassinet)
  • Max. Weight: 31.5kg
  • Pram Weight: 12.8kg

For my first pram review Australia, one of the best pram brands Australia, BOB makes some fabulous prams, and within the Revolution range exists several different types. The Pro is the cheapest type, and yet still just as usable.

This is one of those prams that offers flexibility to be used as both a jogger and as an everyday pram.

This pram is practically designed to tackle tough terrain due to the state of the art coil suspension – it’s super strong! So it’s a great option if you’re looking for the best pram for walking off road or looking for jogger prams reviews. The seats are padded and comfortable with a 5 point harness, multi-level recline and a large canopy overhead. The wheels can also be removed with the press of a button making transport a breeze.

This is a big pram, and while that’s a benefit for many, for others it’s not. Despite its size, it is a very nice easy fold pram. The basket also isn’t the largest, but it is manageable.

A high weight limit means its great for big kids too and I am able to go jogging with my tall 5 year old as well as my toddler.


  • Can be used as a jogger and everyday pram
  • Tackles tough terrain extremely well
  • Removable wheels and easy to transport


  • Small basket under the pram
  • May be a bit large for some parents

Baby Jogger City Select Pram Review

Rating: 4.5


  • Type: Single
  • Suitable From Birth: Yes (with additional capsule or bassinet)
  • Max. Weight: 20.5kg
  • Pram Weight: 14kg

Among the most popular baby pram brands is Baby Jogger and the Baby Jogger City Select is the best city pram.

What makes this pram so great is that it’s adaptable for basically every situation – there are over 16 different ways to position the pram including ways to turn it into the best travel system.

Suitable from 6 months old, the pram can have a second seat added to be used as a double and a stand for a third child. As these are purchased separately, I would still consider this to be a single pram but you can make it into an awesome double tandem stroller or a sit n stand stroller with the board added.

You can also purchase a separate bassinet which can be attached to make it a bassinet stroller suitable from birth. You can do the same thing with a car seat by buying a compatible baby capsule. You can also add two of these making it perfect for baby twins.

You can find the Baby Jogger City Go baby capsule which will attach to any Baby Jogger pram here and the bassinet here.

Front wheel suspension makes the ride smoother and the tyres are a good size for taking on varied terrain, making it one of the good prams for walking. Everything for your child is adjustable including the footrest and canopy height. Storage is also great.

The one con is that the pram is heavier compared with others, but this is a small price for a big return.


  • Pram offers over 16 ways to be used
  • Can be converted to a double and sit n stand pram
  • Adjustable footrest and canopy


  • This pram is on the heavier side

Maclaren Quest Arc Stroller Review

Rating: 4.5


  • Type: Single
  • Suitable From Birth: Yes
  • Max. Weight: 25kg
  • Pram Weight: 6.2kg

Suitable for newborns through to toddlers weighing 25kgs, this is a great compact pram for newborn option if you’re looking for newborn baby prams that will still be a great toddler stroller too.

The Maclaren Quest Arc is loved for its sturdy, great quality frame which will last and its comfortable fully reclining seat. The seat and memory foam footrest can be converted into a cocoon setup for newborns. There’s a 5 point harness to keep your little one secure and a fully extendable UPF 50+ and waterproof hood, plus a rain cover.

This is not one of the most cheap baby prams, but with this stroller you are getting a light weight pushchair which is easy to fold up/down with just one hand, and folds up compactly. The 4 wheel suspension makes for smooth and lightweight pushing, making it perfect for city, everyday or travel use.

All in all this is a great option if you’re looking for something lightweight that will stay with your child from newborn through to toddler phase.


  • Memory foam footrest and seat transforms into a cocoon for newborns
  • Lightweight and functional for everyday use
  • Can be used for newborns through to toddlers


  • Not the most affordable option

Valco Baby Ultra Snap Review

one of my personal top 5 prams is the valco snap in stroller reviews Australia

Rating: 4.0


  • Type: Single
  • Suitable From Birth: Yes
  • Max. Weight: 20.5kg
  • Pram Weight: 8.2kg

Compact, lightweight and great for small spaces, the Valco Baby Ultra Snap scores top points for its design and durability.

If you’re looking for affordable strollers for babies that works perfectly from birth without buying any accessories, this is it. The Valco Baby Ultra Snap has some great features such as an adjustable canopy, great manoeuvrability and a light pram design and a huge benefit of this pram is that it can be used both forward and rear facing. It’s our favourite lightweight newborn pram.

It’s also quite adaptable – you can remove the wheels and replace them with all-terrain tyres, and you can purchase an adapter to use the pram as a travel system.

While it’s got some great pros, I do wish the fold was more compact and that the pram could be folded with one hand. But for the comfort of a newborn, and parent, the pram does brilliantly.


  • One of the best lightweight prams
  • Can be used from birth without any accessories
  • Great manoeuvrability for a lightweight pram


  • A bit bulky
  • Requires two hands to fold

Bugaboo Cameleon 3 Review

Rating: 3.5


  • Type: Single
  • Suitable From Birth: Yes
  • Max. Weight: 17kg
  • Pram Weight: 9.6kg

It needs to be said, the Bugaboo Cameleon 3 pram isn’t for everyone. Yes, it’s got some fabulous features, but the best pram needs to be an all-rounder, and a price tag like this already pushes it outside the boundaries for many parents.

But if we are focusing on value, then it is can represent money well spent.

This is simply one of the best strollers to push with great maneuverability, control and flexibility.

The handlebar is the ultimate in adjustability. The pram can be transformed from forward to rear facing, and there is an adjustable handlebar has a brake control. The seat reclines fully flat making it suitable for newborns and features a hand fold.

It’s also super stylish with a modern take on a traditional design, and with several bold colours to choose from. There are optional extras and you can attach bassinets and capsules to turn it into a travel system. It’s the best Bugaboo pram out there and worth considering if you have the cash.


  • One of the best prams to push
  • Removable bassinet which converts to a reclinable and reversible seat
  • Super lightweight and compact


  • Super expensive!

Baby Jogger City Mini GT Review

Rating: 4.0


  • Type: Single
  • Suitable From Birth: Yes
  • Max. Weight: 29.5kg
  • Pram Weight: 9.7kg

The Baby Jogger City Mini GT has become one of the top-rated prams in Australia. Why? Because it’s a fabulous all-rounder and the best budget pram!

It’s lightweight, easy to push and steer with a huge canopy to protect from the sun and a super easy and compact, one-handed fold. In combination with its durability, this makes it the perfect pram for everyday use.

The padded seat is comfortable with a 5 point harness and child’s cup holder and there’s also a good amount of storage underneath. The pram can also be converted into a travel system offering ultimate flexibility. It even has all-terrain wheels for bumpy surfaces.

There’s also some extra accessories you can buy to make up for some of its shortcomings which means there’s a lot to love about this pram!


  • A durable budget option
  • Good quality, all-terrain wheels
  • Lots of compatible accessories available


  • May need to purchase additional accessories to make it suitable

>> Click here to check the price on Amazon and to read more reviews. You can also see the price of the Baby Jogger capsule that you can add here and bassinet here.

Thule Urban Glide Review

Rating: 4.5


  • Type: Single
  • Suitable From Birth: Yes (with additional capsule or bassinet)
  • Max. Weight: 34kg
  • Pram Weight: 11.3kg

One pram that consistently ranks well in pram reviews is the Thule Urban Glide. It’s a fantastic pram for jogging that not only is easy to use, but it looks great!

The huge 3 point wheels can be locked in both the front (for jogging) and in the rear for added stability on rough terrain. This makes it the perfect allrounder for parents that need a little flexibility.

The pram folds really well with one hand and is pretty lightweight and the best compact pram once folded.

The handlebars can be changed in position making the pram comfortable for parents of all heights.

The child seat is great. The recline is near flat (although not fully) with a movable canopy and peekaboo window and two child’s pockets for storage and bottles, but unfortunately there’s no parents cup holders.

This jogging stroller is a great purchase for active parents looking for a flexibility.


  • A quality, budget friendly option for jogging
  • 3 point wheels make it great for jogging
  • Relatively lightweight and compact when folded


  • Seat doesn’t recline fully
  • No parent cup holders

Baby Jogger Summit X3 Pram Review

Rating: 4.5


  • Type: Single
  • Suitable From Birth: Yes
  • Max. Weight: 34kg
  • Pram Weight: 12.5kg

For parents with a more active lifestyle, the Baby Jogger Summit X3 Pram is ideal for jogging with your baby when they reach a suitable size.

The swivel wheels can be locked into place from the handlebar erasing the need to bend down. This is super convenient and helps the pram score big points for its ease of use. The handlebar also features a handbrake for great control.

The pram offers what you would expect from a top-rated pram – it’s highly versatile and can be converted to a double with the additional purchase of a third seat.

The all-terrain wheels make it super easy to push on all surfaces, and the wheels easily pop off so that the pram can be folded more compactly. There’s also a quick and easy one-handed fold.

Unfortunately, it does lack a parents cup holder, but there is a child’s cup holder which is roomy enough for parents to use too. Alternatively, you can also purchase a parents organiser separately. The handlebar also isn’t adjustable.

The pram features a huge canopy with a peekaboo window for visibility. Although you can replace the seat with an infant car seat, the canopy can’t use the canopy at the same time. You can find information about the attachable capsule here if you want to be able to turn this into a travel system.

The seat offers multiple levels of recline to a nearly flat position and a huge weight limit of 34kg.

While it is a bit heavier and wider base, it is definitely a strong and sturdy option and I think the best all terrain pram and best off road pram in Australia.


  • Swivel wheels can be locked from the handlebar
  • Easy one handed fold
  • Huge weight limit


  • The handlebar is not adjustable
  • No parent cup holder

Best Travel Stroller 2021 Australia

Having a dedicated travel stroller is awesome for when you travel (and works well for home too). As people who travel frequently and have a tiny boot in our car, having the best stroller for travel has been essential.

Mountain Buggy Nano Review

one of my all time top 10 prams with best baby prams australia and best stroller australia

Rating: 4.0


  • Type: Single
  • Suitable From Birth: Yes (with additional capsule or bassinet)
  • Max. Weight: 20kg
  • Pram Weight: 5.9kg

The Mountain Buggy Nano is the pram for travel – it’s lightweight and even includes a travel carry bag. The bag is great as it minimises the stress of worrying something will happen to the pram.

The best part of this pram is the fold. It folds super compactly and tight and it’s easy to carry it over your shoulder.

Another big pro of this Mountain Buggy stroller is the weight. It’s lightweight which makes it easy to take along with you over the shoulder in addition to everything else.

The seat can hold up to 20kg which is great for a small pram and even fit our tall four-year-old while sitting. A nice sized canopy with decent recline – definitely enough for your child to sleep, but not enough for a newborn. It is a two hand fold which makes it tricky navigating on your own – you have to put things down to fold it properly.

Smaller wheels which can make it tricky on rough surfaces, but rear suspension guarantees a super smooth one!

However, it is a super convenient choice for the best stroller Australia and makes for a great infant stroller if you also purchase the bassinet (called a Cocoon) as pictured above. It’s also perfect if you are like us and don’t have much boot space. It even fits easily into the tiny small boot of our Beetle Cabriolet while still being a fantastic stroller for toddlers.

In fact, in addition to it being a best travel stroller, I also put it in the category of best baby pram Australia with the cocoon added.

With the extra and features this pram has, you can easily use it for day to day use and not just for travel.


  • Super compact when folded making it great for travel
  • Includes a travel carry bag
  • Rear suspension helps provide a smoother ride


  • If you’re looking for an infant pram, this one needs the cocoon (additional purchase)
  • Small wheels make it tricky to push on some surfaces
  • Two handed fold

>>Click here to check the price and to read more reviews of this best pram for travel on eBay. You can find the latest prices for the awesome cocoon attachment here.

GB Pockit Air All-Terrain Stroller Review

Rating: 4.5


  • Type: Single
  • Suitable From Birth: No
  • Max. Weight: 17kg
  • Pram Weight: 4.6kg

This is the perfect pram to bring along on all your travels! It weighs in at a featherlight 4.6 kilograms and folds down to a surprisingly small package. When folded up, it meets airline requirements for carry-on baggage.

The all-terrain double wheels on this pram are another feature that make it ideal for going on holiday or if you’re looking for the best walking pram. No matter where your adventures take you, it will be easy to bring your pram. The wheels work well on a variety of terrain, including brick and cobblestone pathways.

An additional benefit of this pram is how comfortable it is for your child. The design features a breathable mesh fabric that reduces the risk of chafing and sweat buildup on warm days. There’s also a nice sun canopy to help protect your little one against burns.


  • Featherlight weight for a pram
  • When folded the pram meets airline carry-on baggage requirements


  • Although wheels are all terrain they work better on flat surfaces
  • Canopy provides limited coverage

BabyZen YoYo+ Stroller Review

Rating: 3.5


  • Type: Single
  • Suitable From Birth: Yes (with additional capsule or bassinet)
  • Max. Weight: 15kg
  • Pram Weight: 6.6kg

Another contender for the best travel stroller Australia is the BabyZen YoYo+ stroller. This is the rolls royce of strollers and it is an option for the best pram for travelling.

It is similar to the Nano in many ways. It is a compact, lightweight travel pram with a small fold that is perfect for taking onboard aircraft. It comes in at only 52 x 44 x 18 cm when folded and up to 6.6 kilograms. It’s the the lightest pram Australia has that deserves to be listed here

It comes with a travel bag, rain cover and has a nice extendable canopy. There is a handy basket underneath. There is a choice of frame and seat covers and you can buy additional seat covers if you want a change. You can buy a bassinet attachment (called the Nest).

How does it compare to the Nano in travel stroller reviews? Well the YoYo is slightly smaller but that’s because the seat is not as big (meaning your kid will grow out of this pram earlier). Both have the option of attachable bassinets for newborns with the Nano’s cocoon being much cheaper than the YoYo’s Nest).

Really, they are both very similar so we purchased the Nano thanks for the lower price tag and it is our pick for the best travel pram 2021, but I think you will be happy with the YoYo as well which is definitely a top contender for best compact stroller Australia.


  • High quality travel pram
  • Includes a travel bag and rain cover
  • Additional seats and accessories available for purchase


  • Newborns need a bassinet attachment (additional purchase)
  • Pricey

Best Newborn Pram Australia

When looking for best prams for newborns, it can be tricky and you need to make sure the pram you buy is actually suitable for newborns or you are happy to buy a bassinet or capsule that will turn the pram into one which is a best pram for newborns.

So if you are trying to work out how to choose a pram for newborn babies – that is what you need to do. It needs to have a seat that lies flat or very close to, be rated for newborn use or have an attachment that will make this so. If this is the case, you are good to go!

Many of the prams on this list deserve to be on a list for best newborn prams Australia.

In particular, I recommend the Baby Jogger City Select (but you will need to buy a bassinet or capsule to make it a pram for newborn use), the Bugaboo Cameleon or the Valco Baby Ultra Snap which is suitable for newborns without adding anything extra.

I also enjoyed using the Mountain Buggy Nano for my newborn with the cocoon attachment.

If you are looking for the best pram for newborn and toddler then most of the double prams coming up are suitable for this with the first three suitable for newborn twins and a great choice for best twin pram.

Mountain Buggy Duet V3 Buggy

Rating: 4.5

Said to be the most compact pram and even the best twin pram on the market, the sleek Mountain Buggy Duet V3 definitely has some advantages as one of the best cheap double prams.

The pram is everything great about a double at the same width as a single! There is a single large handlebar in the centre, with two independent canopies overhead.

Childcare Dupo Twin Pram Review

Rating: 4.0


  • Type: Double
  • Suitable From Birth: Yes
  • Max. Weight: 17kg (per seat)
  • Pram Weight: 10.4kg

The Childcare Dupo Twin Stroller is a competitively priced option of these baby prams reviews if you’re looking for an easy to handle twin stroller with plenty of storage.

Featuring one hand fold, this twin pram is suitable for newborns through to 17kgs. What I love about it is its simple design with plenty of storage pockets and capacity for holding shopping – as let’s face it with two little ones you probably need the extra place to put things – fortunately the two shopping baskets that can take up to 5kg in weight help a lot with this.

This twin stroller features 5 point safety harnesses, 4 position independent reclining seats and adjustable seat extension for newborns, sun visor and shoulder pads.

All in all if you’re looking for one of the best cheap prams Australia that’s suitable for twin use, this is a great stroller for city and everyday use.


  • One of the best cheap prams for twins
  • Two shopping baskets each holding up to 5kg
  • Lots of protection from sun and the elements


  • Style is a little bland
  • The seat weight limit better suits twins

Baby Jogger City Mini GT Double Pram Review

Rating: 4.0


  • Type: Double
  • Suitable From Birth: Yes
  • Max. Weight: 22.5kg (per seat)
  • Pram Weight: 14.7kg

Finding a double pram that fits through normal doorways with good maneuverability is tough enough, let alone finding a lightweight double pram. But the Baby Jogger City Mini GT double is exactly this.

The pram offers everything great about the City Mini GT single with side by side seats in a double design.

The one handed fold is such a convenient feature for a double pram, especially when you have your hands full. The swivel wheels are great for tackling difficult corners and they do work to make the pram feel less cumbersome than other doubles.

The seats have both independent recline and canopies and can lay nearly flat. You can also replace the seat with an approved car seat with the purchase of an adapter, but unfortunately, only one seat can be used at a time.

One thing you are missing out on is a drinks tray. You can purchase this as an addition but it does not come as standard. Also, the handlebar isn’t height adjustable and while most parents have not found this to be an issue, parents on the extremes ends of height may struggle. The basket can also be a bit trickier to access.

This is a simple pram and you trade extras for lightweight but it is a strong and sturdy budget friendly pram.


  • Good seat weight limit
  • Budget friendly
  • Convenient one handed fold


  • If using as a travel system, only one car seat can be used at a time
  • Handlebar is not adjustable

Childcare Two Up Tandem Pram Review

Rating: 3.5


  • Type: Double
  • Suitable From Birth: Yes – 1 seat
  • Max. Weight: 17kg (per seat)
  • Pram Weight: 12.7kg

Tandem strollers have a big advantage over their side-by-side pram cousins showcased above and that’s that they can fit through doorways and other narrow spaces much better. They often fold up smaller too.

If you are looking for the best tandem prams Australia offers then the Childcare Two Up Tandem pram is a great option especially if you are looking for something affordable.

This is a lightweight option with a fully reclining back seat which is perfect from birth. The front seat has a two-position recline which is suitable from 6 months making this the best tandem pram Australia option if you have two toddlers or are looking for a newborn and toddler pram.

It has the safety features you would expect with 5-point safety harnesses and locking wheels. There are two independent hoods with the front being removable.

There is a good size basket and this stroller is perfect for rushing around the shopping centre or the best pram for walking.


  • A strong and affordable pram
  • Tandem design easily fits through most doorways
  • Independent hoods


  • Seat weight limit is on the lower side
  • May not be perfect for all surfaces
