Stiftung Warentest: Cheap strollers beat expensive brands
They are advertised with design and style and often cost well over 1000 euros. But not all stylish or trendy prams are good for offspring, according to Stiftung Warentest. In a comparison of twelve combi strollers between 400 and 1300 euros, many models particularly stood out with uncomfortable seats (issue 7/2022).
The seats can therefore often not be folded into a flat and back-friendly lounger. As a result, the baby’s knees point upwards. Little ones can barely move or turn sideways. “No adult would voluntarily take an afternoon nap,” the test report said.
In four models, the baby bath is too small and in one, the rain cover contains pollutants. The verdict is “insufficient”. Three models do not go beyond “sufficient”, five others do not go beyond “satisfactory”.
