We love these buggies, but they are so last year - check out the best buggies for 2016 here.

A stroller made from recycled bottles? It's the greenest stroller on the planet - or so says the Upp’s creators Greentom - a Dutch company with a mission of “designing, developing and producing 100% green products that make the world and the future of our children a greener one”.

The Upp is a lightweight buggy weighing only 7.3kg, and as we mentioned, it's completely made of recycled plastic; the frame from recycled polypropene and the seat from recycled PET-bottles (soft drink bottles).

It's also compact when folded and boats one-hand manoeuvering capabilities and all for an eye-wateringly good value price.

Upp RRP: £199

Cybex Priam

Cybex has put everything it knows about style, safety and functionality (which is a huge amount) into its first luxury travel system hoping to make it an instant hit.

Partly created as an homage to iconic American designers Ray and Charles Eames, this high-end pushchair is both rear and forward-facing. It can be used with a carrycot, or two different seat units – a 2-in-1 light seat and a Lux seat - and can also be converted into a travel system, fitting any Cybex infant car seat.

And it wouldn’t be high-end without the ability to be used in two-wheel mode, like the Bugaboo Cameleon and Buffalo.

But what makes the Priam different is that the front wheels can be replaced with skis, so you and your little one can “free-ride” through the snow - on one of your, no doubt, numerous ski-ing trips.

RRP: Pushchair with Comfort Lux seat and carrycot £1040

Available: Now

You can buy the Cybex Priam from Natural Baby Shower or Mamas & Papas

Britax Smile e-Brake

If you’ve ever worried about your buggy slipping out of your hand and rolling away from you, you’ll probably be glad to know that Britax have invented an automatically stopping pushchair.

The Smile e-Brake comes to a stop as soon as your hand is off the handlebar. A small computer perched on the bar lights up red when your hand is off the handle, indicating the brakes are on and a green light indicates the buggy is ready to push.

But that’s not all; the pram’s computer also counts the steps you’ve taken, calories you’ve burnt while walking, tells the time and even measures the temperature inside the pram.

RRP: Price not fixed yet, but a little birdy told us it could be around £600.

Available: End of 2015

You can buy the Britax Smile e-Brake on Amazon

Babyzen Zen

Babyzen hopes to follow on from the success of its very portable and compact lightweight Yoyo buggy with its brand new all-terrain pushchair, the Zen.

A large and sturdy three-wheeler, it is rear and forward-facing, travel-system-compatible and has a solar powered warning light on the front of the frame when out on dark afternoons.

It also has one of the most spacious looking seat units and carrycots around, so don’t be surprised if your baby reaches a zen-like trance when resting in the pram.

RRP: £845

Available: Now

Here's the complete Babyzen Zen review.

iCandy Strawberry 2

An updated version of the iCandy Strawberry, the first version of this lightweight buggy was released back in 2010.

The 2015 edition has a bigger under-seat basket, a pram that's suitable from birth and a carrycot that's positioned higher on the chassis.

But arguably its biggest selling point is that it can hold a maximum weight of up to 25kg – approximately the weight of a 5-year-old child, giving it a much longer life span than other buggies in its class - if you think your 5 year old would still want to sit in a buggy.

RRP: The complete Strawberry 2 package (minus the car seat) will cost £550.
