Since “Sex and the City” sparked the Bugaboo craze, luxury strollers have been all the rage. Needless to say, these are not your mama’s stroller. They’re expertly engineered, performance “vehicles” boasting sleek designs and remote-controlled headlights. And thanks to their A-list pushers, the following five buggies have become stars in their own rights:
When it comes to luxury strollers, all roads lead to the uber-chic Bugaboo Cameleon. Described as “the stroller to end all strollers,” the Cameleon features reversible handlebars, a reversible seat and adjustable wheels. And its bold design is available in a riot of colors with endless accessory combinations! Who says you can’t have it all? $880*

All strollers are not created equal! If you need proof, look no further than the Orbit Stroller Travel System. This little stroller can do it all! Its modern design is fabulous, functional, and, above all, safe. And there’s a reason so many celebrities swear by it—it’s super maneuverable! In short, the orbit is out of this world! $900
Maclaren Grand Tour LX
A favorite among the serious stroller, the Maclaren Grand Tour is truly “grand!” This British beauty features a clock, thermometer and built-in, remote-controlled headlights. Yes, remote-controlled headlights! It also comes with a Strollometer, which seamlessly measures distance “strolled.” And did we mention the famous Maclaren lifetime warranty? Basically, the Grand Tour is ideal for a luxurious stroll around town. $1,034
Celebrity stroller of choice, the Xplory “lifts your child closer to you” so you can explore together. The stroller’s height allows for effortless eye contact, panoramic views and easy retrieval.

The Xplory’s design, ergonomics, and aesthetics leave lesser strollers green with envy. $1695 (fully loaded, with all accessories)
There are strollers and then there are strollers. The Quinny Buzz falls into the latter, oh-so-amazing category! This eye-catching carriage offers the best of form and function—trendsetting fashion and precision engineering. The Buzz features a parking break, five-point padded safety harness and removable safety bar. And thanks to revolutionary gas-spring technology, it unfolds automatically. It’s the perfect chariot for your little prince or princess. $630
Best Baby Strollers
Of course, you don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars to get the best baby stroller. Top baby strollers are often mid-priced brand names that can be found in many big-box stores.
