Strollers are extremely beneficial for parents who are constantly on the go with their child. It is a convenient and safe way for parents to move with their child and is much more beneficial then carrying them all the time. Strollers provide much comfort to both parents and children because of their top of the line safety and overwhelming benefits. There are hundreds of different kinds of strollers and all are designed for many different purposes. For the grocery store parent there are perfect indoor use strollers, for the Disneyland parent there are great outdoor strollers and for the hiker and adventurous parent there are safe rough terrain strollers. Regardless of the type of stroller they all have the same basic stroller parts that keep them functioning properly and safe of parents and children.
Starting from the ground up we will provide a list of the basic stroller parts and their purposes:
Wheels: Wheels are, obviously, the parts that allow your stroller to transportable. They range in size from, large to small, depending on the use of the stroller. Larger wheels are better for rougher terrain and small wheels are great for daily use. Most strollers have four basic wheels, however some have more for better support and movement and some have three. All wheels on modern strollers have locks to prevent your stroller from rolling away.
Base: The base of the stroller is what holds it together. It is also what many of the accessories are attached to. The base is attached to the wheels and rises to support the seat and forms the handles. Handles are an extremely important part of the base because they need to be comfortable for parent. The base can be formed in an array of different ways, depending on the type of stroller.
Seat: The seat is probably the most important of all the stroller parts. It is what your child will sit, lay and rest in. The seat must be comfortable for your child which means it must not be to small or to large. Equally it should have padding and great back structure. Your seat should be set in an upright position so that your child is able to see out of the stroller. Often times stroller seats have accommodations for newborns that allow their car seats to safely be strapped in to the seat of the stroller.
