  • 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!

  • 2. Stokke Trailz, £964, MadeForMums Silver Award Winner

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

    Its large air-filled tyres with advanced suspension, the option to use the buggy in parent or world-facing modes, and a super comfy seat (or carrycot) that has the signature Stokke high frame position all impressed our judges.

    Add in the large basket with a 10kg maximum load, included raincover and mosquito cover, and swish styling, and this is one deluxe ride for the most challenging of terrain.

    What our MadeForMums Awards judges say about the Stokke Trailz:

    “The tyres are practically the size of a small car wheel, so good for all terrain. Large basket. It looks like a tank, this one is for families with lots of space who are out on country walks every day.” Mum of 2, Magda

    “Uber chic, luxurious design, for style concious parents. Spacious basket, comfortable seat unit.” Mum of 3, Emma

    The most compact 3-wheeler in the Out 'n' About buggy collection, perfect for adventurous outdoorsy parents who tackle parks and public transport on a daily basis.

    It’s also comparatively narrow (57.5cm), with a small turning circle, which is great for buses and lifts, and weighs less than 8kg.

  • 7. 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).

  • 8. iCandy Peach All-Terrain, £680

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

    Launched at the start of 2015, 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 £640, 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.

  • 9. Britax B-Motion 3, £215

    If you want a sturdy and versatile pushchair that will last you a long time and is really easy to fold this could be a great system. It can also support itself freestanding, which is great for storage, and has an easy fold system, which our reviewer loved.

    At 58cm wide, it should fit through every doorway, and it has a good amount of storage. 

    This buggy scored five stars for its folding, ease of pushing, and durability in our test, making it great value for money.

  • 10. Koochi Pushmatic, £180

    Launched back in 2013, Koochi is the new urban, street-cred baby and toddler line created by Bolton-based children’s brand Cosatto and it's easy to see the family resemblance with the distinctive designs - no boring black here.

    Koochi highlights the Pushmatic's mini 6.7kg weight as being its standout feature, and our reviewer loved this featherweight lightness. But it doesn't compromise on substance and tackles tricky terrain easily with its front and rear wheel suspension.
