What are the Ovia Family Awards?
Each year, we ask Ovia parents to nominate their best-loved products and brands and tell us why these picks made such an impact on their journey into parenthood. We analyze thousands of votes, pieces of feedback, and thoughtful recommendations to determine which best-of-the-best, tried-and-true products are worthy of an Ovia Family Award. When you see our seal, you know what you’re buying was chosen by parents who’ve used it, trust it, and can genuinely recommend it to other growing families. In this category, we’re giving awards for:
- Best stroller brand
- Best jogger
- Best double stroller
For all our other winners, visit our Ovia Family Awards Hub.

Best Stroller Brand: UPPAbaby
“The best strollers on the market! Made by parents and it shows in all the details, and it’s so luxurious!”
Parents swear by UPPAbaby strollers, and it’s easy to see why. The brand’s mission is to make high-quality, innovative baby gear that not only aligns with your functional needs but also looks stylish.
“It’s more expensive than most other brands, but you will not regret paying the extra money for the quality, ease of use, and safety of this stroller. It’s also nice looking.”
UPPAbaby products are designed with savvy parents in mind. Though the brand’s pricing runs a little higher than other options, you can count on quality, functionality, safety, smooth operation, and of course, a sophisticated aesthetic.
“This is easily my most favorite baby item. The UPPAbaby Vista is so easy and just flat out amazing. It also converts to a double. The features are endless. High recommend.”
UPPAbaby strollers really stand out for their features. We’re talking pop-out sunshades, bassinet mattress pads, vented bases, breathable canopies, water-repellent materials, zip-out inner liners, full-size reversible toddler seats, one-handed release and recline, all-wheel suspension, and several accessories to accommodate multiple children.
“It’s so easy to use and the car seat, bassinet, and stroller all fit into the stroller frame for easy baby transport. The whole system is super light and easy to get in and out of the vehicle.”
No one said being a new parent would be easy, but with the right products, it can certainly be easier. With this in mind, UPPAbaby creates lightweight and easy-to-use strollers designed for efficiency and convenience. You might even say they’re fun to use.
UPPAbaby challenges the homogenous look of most standard baby gear. What you’ll get is modern strollers with sleek designs that never sacrifice safety or comfort.
This was the closest category for Ovia Family Awards. All brands had similar vote counts and user satisfaction scores. To check out more options, take a peek at our other finalists for best stroller brand:

- Baby Jogger
Best Jogger: Graco
“For the price, this is the best option in the joggers category.”
Graco jogging strollers are favored among Ovia parents. What makes them stand out from the competition? Let us count the ways!
Joggers from Graco have three sizable rubber tires for a smooth ride on a variety of terrains. They’re easy to push up hills, on trails, and over steep curbs.
“This jogger can literally go anywhere. We have taken it to parks, for walks that involve gravel, hills, rocky surfaces, pavement to grass, uneven surfaces, and it champions them all. The ride is always smooth for baby.”
“Love my Graco jogger! I love that you can flatten the seat out and use it flat when your baby is a newborn, turn the seat to face different directions, or take the seat off and use it as a base for any Graco Click Connect car seat. Also a good price point!”
Graco joggers convert into bassinet strollers for newborns, infant strollers with click-on car seats, and toddler strollers. You’ll also get handy cup holders and convenient storage underneath. Oh, and did we mention they’re affordable?
“As a private nanny for over ten years, I’ve used several brands of joggers. Now as I start my own family, my husband and I are looking for safety, ease of use, and one that has an adjustable seat angle — Graco not only meets our criteria but fits with other Graco products, thus simplifying our lives!”
Many Graco jogging strollers come as a complete travel system with an infant car seat. But no matter which model you get, you can count on it fitting with any Graco car seat — just slide it in, hear the “click,” and you’re good to go.

Best Double Stroller: UPPAbaby Vista
“A must-have for multiple babies. It’s easy to use and store, and you can just tell it’s well made.”
If you’ve got twins or two stroller-age kiddos, you need some serious baby gear — starting with a double stroller. The UPPAbaby Vista is smartly designed with multiple configurations to accommodate families with two babies. You can get adapters, accessories, and add-ons to create the perfect option for your family.
“Best stroller ever! Love how easy it rolls, car seat attaches, love that the Vista comes with the bassinet and the other seat. Also, the Vista can convert into a double stroller so you don’t have to buy another if you have another child.”
Unlike many other double strollers that position the seats side by side, the Vista configures them in tandem. You can get one additional bassinet and infant SnugSeat for twins or get the RumbleSeat accessory to make room for your toddler when you welcome a new child.
“I love the compact design for multiple children! It easily transitions between seats as my baby grows into a toddler and has an optional third child space.”
If you have three kids (or are planning on expanding to three), UPPAbaby has you covered there too. The Vista PiggyBack accessory allows your toddler or young child to hop on when they’re too tired to walk on their own.
“Amazing high-quality stroller. We have taken this stroller all around the world.”
When it comes to double strollers, the UPPAbaby Vista is about as compact as they get. No matter how busy you are or where you’re headed, you’ll have all the convenience you need. Plus, you can rely on the quality of the Vista to last for years through multiple newborn, infant, and toddler stages.
