Gone are the days when the idea of exercising with your baby in tow was unthinkable.

With a range of fabulous all terrain buggies available, parents can now conveniently bring their kids along for the ride. The impressive features in all terrain pushchairs make exercising in the great outdoors a breeze, allowing you to meet your daily step goals while your baby tags along in comfort.

All terrain strollers are strollers with large, often air-filled wheels that are designed to handle all kinds of surfaces including rough surfaces such as grass and gravel. These buggies come with three or four wheels and the number of wheels that is best for you will depend on how you'll be using your buggy. Three wheeled buggies have off-set, air filled tyres that make them better for rough terrain. They are able to go faster which is perfect if you're an active parent looking to take your child with you on a run. A four wheeled buggy offers more stability, is generally easier to manoeuvre and will have a more compact fold-down.

All terrain pushchairs come in a range of prices and styles so the specific goals you have for adventures with your child will determine which system is best for you. If you want to run laps in the park, finding a buggy that is compatible with jogging is super important. If you need a rugged system for off road walking, a buggy with big wheels and shock absorbing suspension is the one for you. There is even a buggy on this list that can be used for skiing and riding your bike. We don't know many parents who are game to bring their baby on a spin down the slopes, but if that parent exists, then we've got them covered.

In general, all terrain pushchairs should have adjustable handles, be easy and compact to fold and have a seat that can be adjusted to suit the needs of your baby. Whether your child is a newborn, six months or four years old, the best buggies will be suitable for them at all ages.

We've done the research on the best buggies at a range of price points so the perfect buggy for every household can be found on this list.
