A cane stroller is a great option for traveling, traveling on public transport and walking during the warmer months. But not all reeds are of good quality. Therefore, when choosing such models, one should take into account the material and diameter of the wheels, the presence of a folding backrest, shock absorption properties, seat belts and the manufacturer.
The best stroller cane manufacturers
We recommend that you familiarize yourself with the rating of the best strollers and the rating of the best cane strollers according to customer reviews.
While some 'walks' are characterized by good maneuverability and shock absorption, fold easily and have a solid structure, others shake on every pebble and break, unable to withstand the season. To exclude the second option, you should choose products from only those brands that have proven themselves well in the Russian and European markets.

What type of stroller to choose
When buying a cane, consider the age of the baby. Such models can be used from six months to three years. Because The cane stroller is foldable and does not have a solid rigid bottom, it does not provide the correct position for a child under 6 months. For walks with a toddler who has not yet learned how to sit, cradle strollers or transformers are more suitable.
Which stroller to choose
For 6-month-old babies, it is advisable to use models with a horizontal back position. Thanks to this, you can walk with your baby even when he falls asleep. These strollers are perfect for long walks and a comfortable stay of the baby on the street. But they are rare on sale.
Models, the back of which can be folded up to 140-150 degrees, are suitable for curious children who gaze around most of the time, and do not sleep.
For children over 9 months old, walking sticks with the backrest fixing in two positions (with a slight backrest folding angle) would be a good option. Such models are compact, lightweight and easy to transport. The backrest folds out to improve the child's vision and a more comfortable position.
The simplest and cheapest are strollers with an unregulated rigid back. They are the lightest and are designed for short walks. As a rule, they are bought for children over a year old.
A wide variety of models are on sale. These can be maneuverable three-wheeled canes, products that can be operated with one hand (most wheelchairs are operated with two hands), and lightweight strollers that can be taken on board an aircraft.
What to look for when buying
Most strollers are equipped with small diameter plastic wheels. Such models have good maneuverability and low cost, but they drive well only on flat roads. When walking on uneven surfaces and off-road, small plastic wheels will rattle and get stuck in all holes.
The best choice is rubber wheels, which provide a smoother, softer reed ride. The larger the diameter of the wheels you choose, the better the cross-country ability of the stroller will be.
Inflatable rubber wheels with a large diameter (about 30cm) are great for off-road, winter walks and broken roads. But they have one significant drawback – they can be punctured.
Many stroller models have swivel front wheels that can rotate 360 degrees. These canes change direction more easily and avoid obstacles. Make sure the swivel wheels can be locked – you will need this for walking in the sand or in the forest.
Models with removable wheels are a good option. This will help you find the type of wheel that suits your ride best. For example, for travel to nature or for the winter use large inflatable wheels, and for summer walks – small plastic ones.
Strollers can be equipped with two-point, three-point and five-point seat belts. A dexterous and active child can get out of the first two, but the five-point belts securely fix the baby and completely eliminate the likelihood that he will fall out of the stroller.
Choose models with a removable bumper. This will make it easier for you to put your baby in the stroller.
In cane strollers, spring-based shock absorbers are most often used. They 'soften' the stroller well and provide a comfortable stay for the child, and the combination of spring shock absorbers and inflatable rubber wheels significantly reduces shaking when driving.
A large hood will provide better protection from wind, snow and rain, and the presence of a mesh window will allow you to keep track of the baby while driving.
