A 2019 Guide To The Best Baby Strollers In Singapore
1/7Silver Cross Balmoral
Who it's for: Traditionalists
Beloved by royalty (fans include the Duchess of Cambridge and Princess Grace of Monaco) and with a heritage that dates back to the 1870s, Silver Cross has become a byword for luxury prams.
Their iconic Balmoral coach-built pram is proudly handcrafted in Yorkshire, England, and its classic styling remains a favourite with parents worldwide.
For a more contemporary stroller that’s every bit as luxurious, look no further than Aston Martin’s sleek reimagining of Silver Cross’ lighter-weight Surf and Reflex models.
Available at Mothercare
2/7Cybex Priam Lux Seat
Who it's for: Mini fashionistas
If you want to showcase your style credentials whilst you stroll, look no further than Cybex’s collaboration with Moschino’s flamboyant creative director, Jeremy Scott. The Priam Lux Seat features a seriously snazzy black and gold frame, complete with quirky gold wing attachments for a touch of sartorial sparkle. It also comes with a matching bassinet.
Meanwhile, its reversible front unit means your little angel can be forward or rear-facing, and the whole thing can be folded easily into one free-standing unit for convenience on the road.
3/7Fendi Monster Print Stroller
Who it's for: Designer darlings
Label lovers won’t be able to resist Fendi’s adorable Monster Print Stroller, which features the Italian brand’s signature playful print introduced by the late Karl Lagerfeld.
This fashion-forward stroller (available in blue as well) wins practicality points too, with four reclining seat positions and height adjustable safety straps to accommodate growing tots, plus leather-covered handles, monogrammed wheels, a lightweight aluminum frame and an integrated cup-holder to ensure a sweet ride for all parties. Don't forget to add on a Fendi Monster stroller organiser and a matching diaper bag too.

Who it's for: Interactive parents
For parents who feel stroller time should also be bonding time, Norwegian brand Stokke’s revolutionary Xplory stroller is the perfect choice. Ergonomically designed for maximum comfort, Xplory’s raised seat and parent-facing option is a great alternative to the typical forward-facing stroller that lower to the ground, offering the opportunity for family interaction on an equal footing.
The raised configuration is also ideal for those who dine out regularly with their tot, as the stroller’s adjustable height seat means it can work double-duty as a high chair.
Available at Motherswork and Mothercare
Who it's for: Minimalists
Bugaboo’s chic Cameleon (its newest iteration is the Cameleon 3 Plus) has been the brand’s flagship stroller since its inception almost 15 years ago, and it’s easy to see why. Suitable from birth all the way through to walking and packed with practical design features, such as an easy-fold mechanism and a cup-holder for your flat white, it’s clear that this is a stroller designed by—and for—parents.
Factor in limited-edition designer collaborations (past hits include a Warhol-print model) and this contemporary stroller delivers versatility, durability and style in spades.

Who it's for: City slickers
Designed especially for urban life, iCandy’s Peach is one slick and agile pushchair. This streamlined stroller comes loaded with features that make parents’ lives easier and can be configured to adapt to more than one child. The brilliantly-designed Peach Double and Peach Twin carries two children on one stroller frame, and its modular double-stroller design allows you to combine a carrycot and seat unit or even two carrycots at the same time.

Who it's for: Print lovers
A loud and proud travel system that’ll turn heads in all the right ways by award-winning British brand Cosatto, the Giggle is a three-in-one stroller suitable from birth to three years old.
Boasting bold prints with coordinating foot-muff, diaper bag and changing mat as standard, Giggle's frame is engineered with all-round suspension for bump-free strolling, whilst its multi-position recline and adjustable calf support ensures the perfect position for on-the-go nap time.
If you consider animal-print a neutral, you'll love the Paloma Faith collaboration, which includes the Giggle series in glamorous leopard print and an embroidered tiger motif special-edition adorably named Anarchy In The Nursery, with only 50 pieces available worldwide.
