Updated 28-02-2021 – Lucy Walters
When it comes to purchasing the best baby gear, you will have to make a lot of tough decisions choosing between different models. One of the biggest choices you would have to make is between 3-wheel and 4-wheel buggies. 3-wheel buggies have been growing in popularity among parents in the past few years and there are some solid reasons for the same.
First of all, the very structure of these buggies, with two large back wheels and a smaller front wheel, contribute to their excellent maneuverability. Most 3-wheel buggy models are designed for all-terrain use, which means you can use them on typically any type of surface, such as grass, gravel, beach sand, and more, and the ride for your little one will be smooth and comfortable regardless. Also, if you have always been an active individual, walking or jogging every morning, or you like spending time outdoors, then going with the best 3-wheel buggy would be the ideal choice for your lifestyle.
