  • Is there a 3-wheeler or all-terrain buggy for you?

    Yes, there is! Once upon a time, 3-wheelers were seen solely as off-road buggies. Now, 3-wheeler pushchairs are more diverse. You still have those designed for tackling tricky terrain, but there are buggies just tapping into the stylish, futuristic 3-wheeler look. And then there are those built solely with urban streets in mind.

    Want something that can tackle the rugged outdoors (an ATP), or just dream of a city-friendly 3-wheel option? Click through to see our pick of top all terrain and 3-wheeler buggies…

    And finally, don't spend a thing until you read our step-by-step buyer's guide to 3-wheeler buggies!

    “This is a fantastic all-purpose pushchair. In terms of it being all-terrain, it clearly has a great suspension and gave my baby a very smooth ride. As it’s so lightweight it’s easy to push along pavements, but it’s also great for bumpy surfaces.” Mum-of-two, Meena

  • 2. Mountain Buggy Duet, £599, MadeForMums Awards Joint Silver Winner

    Conjured up two decades ago by a New Zealand dad who wanted to enjoy mountain trails with his children, surely Mountain Buggy are a name to trust when it comes to all-terrain pushchairs. 

    Very compact - whether you're out in fields or across mountains it rides just as well through narrow streets. And let's be honest, it looks pretty great too!

    What our MadeForMums Awards judges say about the Mountain Buggy Duet:

    “The Mountain Buggy Duet is a fabulous all terrain buggy and it literally glides over the ground no matter how uneven! The huge air filled tyres no doubt play a big part in this!” Mum-of-two, Rebecca.

    “The large air tyres make it glide over rough terrain and I never have to worry about getting stuck on kerbs, tree roots or mud. The lockable wheels makes cobbled streets a breeze too. I think the hand brake is a brilliant idea and certainly made pushing them down steep hills a lot easier. It's very narrow so weaving in and out of tight spaces in no problem.” Mum-of-two, Carolyn.

  • 3. Phil & Teds Sport, £449, MadeForMums Awards Joint Silver Winner

    A show-stopping buggy, the in-line stroller from Phil & Teds that's no bigger than a single pushchair, is fantastic in all terrains. Handling just as well in an urban environment as cross-country, our MFM reviewer found that ' the three wheels make for a smooth ride. With just your baby in it, it’s effortless to push one-handed while talking on the mobile or sipping a welcome cup of coffee.'

    It's compact, so great for throwing in the back of the car, and if you want to make it even smaller, the wheels come off easily. Very comfy for baby too with its 4-position ergonomic seat that adjusts from flat for newborn to upright for a toddler.

    What our MadeForMums Awards judges say about the Phil & Teds Sport:

    “This is an incredibly stylish buggy that’s perfect for adventurous parents. It tackles pretty much any off-road terrain - including the beach - and is equally at ease gliding around the city. It’s not cheap, but you’re paying for a quality piece of kit that’s built to last. It's beautifully smooth to handle and I love the extra safety features, including the hands-free auto stop brake which gives you complete peace of mind,” mum-of-four, Eve.

  • 4. Bugaboo Donkey £989, MadeForMums Bronze Winner

    A worthy winner - not only is the Bugaboo Donkey unbelievably easy to push and manoeuvre with one hand, it manages it easily even when it's full with shopping or in double pushchair mode.

    With ample storage space - note the expandable side luggage basket - and the fact it transforms into a double pushchair with a few simple clicks, it's perfect for out and about, wherever you are!

    What our MadeForMums Awards judges say about the Bugaboo Donkey:

    “The Bugaboo Donkey is beautifully designed and really easy to push and manoeuvre, even when loaded up with two children. And the mechanism that allows you to convert it from a single to a double and back again is so clever, and great for evolving families.” Mum-of-two, Alice

    “Great quality, well made and sturdy” MFM Reviews Editor, Hazelann Williams

  • 6. Stokke Trailz, £964

    The Stokke Trailz is at the luxurious end of the all-terrain market, and it’s got the features to match.

  • 7. Thule Urban Glide, £435

    Like Scandi-style? Then you'll love the Thule Urban Glide. Sleek and minimalist, this 3-wheel buggy is one smart product.

    Firstly - does it glide, as the name suggests? According to our reviewer Anthony Phillips 'Mounting kerbs is actually a pleasure; the buggy is so light it requires no effort to pop the front wheel up and the wheels are so big that they immediately connect with the surface for a pretty seamless journey.'

    And with lots of storage space in the zip-up under-seat basket and little mesh pocket in the seat unit, it's pretty useful too. A one-hand fold, reclining seat, extendable handlebar and nifty parking brake shows just how much thought has gone into this stylish pushchair...

  • 8. Jané Trider, £495

    The chic Jané Trider is a comfy, cosy and smooth ride for your little one, says our reviewer, with its three large all-terrain, puncture-proof rubber tyres and adjustable suspension.

    The Trider’s high seat position is designed to raise your child above car-fume height, and allows the pushchair to be drawn up to a table and used as a highchair - handy in a restaurant.

    The frame will stand unsupported on its end to save space once folded and quick-release wheels can be removed for an even more compact footprint (this takes the folded size from 70cm x 60cm x 39cm down to 65cm x 48cm x 30cm).

  • 9. iCandy Peach All-Terrain, £680 + £195 for a newborn carrycot

    An all-terrain version was always the next step for British brand iCandy to add to its ever-popular Peach range.

    The three-wheeler iCandy Peach All-Terrain comes in two colours - Toucan (Jet black with electric yellow piping) and Sneaker (Grey with vibrant coral piping).

    It is pricey at £680, plus an extra £195 if you want to add a newborn carrycot, but iCandy's renowned manoeuvrability, robust frame and stylish look are all hallmarks of its new three-wheeler.

  • 10. Britax Bob Revolution pro, £447

    Claiming to turn the world into a playground, the Britax Bob Revolution Pro is a lightweight stroller designed to tackle any terrain, as our Reviewer Katherine Bebo found out:

    'The large wheels and superior suspension mean a smooth ride when tackling tree roots, rocks and other uneven terrain. On the way to the woods, it also laughed in the face of kerbs, and was comfortable to jog with.'

    With its fixed and swivel wheel options, handbrake and adjustable handle, this is one premium running buggy. The sleek black powder-coated frame means it looks the part too.
