The best strollers to buy right now: What to look for, what to avoid, and which brands we’d buy again

If you’re trying to figure out the very best strollers for your family at this moment, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. There are hundreds of models from dozens of brands, and it can be hard to tell which ones are worth heftier price tags — and which aren’t. Over the years, our staff of writers have tested everything from budget-friendly travel systems to high-end luxury strollers, and yes, there really is a noticeable difference between the two. We’ve talked to experts, we’ve talked to stroller makers, and most importantly we’ve talked to tons and tons of parents. We’ve been sent a lot of strollers and loaners...

The Burley Solstice reinvents the jogging stroller with some amazing features.

If you’re part of the baby biker set (and I don’t mean leather jackets and chaps), you probably already know Burley. They’ve been making great bike trailers and accessories for over 35 years. I’m excited about the new Burley Solstice, however, which is a stand-alone stroller and whole new world for Burley. And they’ve definitely risen to the challenge. The Burley Solstice jogging stroller (a great price right now at our affiliate Amazon) is billed as a “premium jogging stroller” and as soon as it comes out of the box, it’s easy to see why. As expected, it’s rugged with a metal...

Mitscoots: Stylish socks on a mission

When I first moved to New York City I quickly realized that good shoes and socks are a must in this town of walking, walking, walking.  Since then I have become something of a sock connoisseur. Seriously. I need socks that are stylish, comfortable and, of course, warm. Our newest find, Mitscoots socks give me all that, and then they give more. US-made Mitscoots socks (who does that anymore?) were conceived from the founders’ time volunteering with the homeless in Austin. They created a company that’s more than the buy one/donate one model we love–they added the idea of employment to the equation. Which means they...

Run 10 Feed 10: running with a purpose

I’m a huge fan of FEED. If you’re not familiar with this amazing company run by Lauren Bush, let me give you the CliffsNotes version: you buy a funky bag, shirt or more, and you are directly helping to feed a school child through partnerships with organizations like the UN World Food Programme, UNICEF, Room to Read, Donors Choose.  Different from other retail organizations that promise to give a portion of proceeds to charity, the FEED donation is built directly into the cost of the bag. A bag with the number ten stenciled on it will feed ten children–it’s...
