Note: I’m re-running this popular post from 2010. Please note that the Maclaren pram is no longer available, but the other two carriages still are.
One of the Google searches that most often brings readers to this blog is a search for doll strollers for older/taller girls (they end up here where I, myself, sought advice on a doll stroller for R., then age 5 1/2). That post still receives tons of traffic, so it seems lots of you still want advice on that same topic. Let me give you an update.
We ended up buying this Corolle Nursery Floral Print Carriage. It’s actually not all that tall (the handlebar just reaches about 22 inches high) and R.- who is now 7 years old- definitely has to hunch over to push it- but she still loves to play with it.
Is it taller than your standard toddler-sized doll carriage? Yes. But if I were to do it all over, I’d probably buy one of these two carriages instead:
Maclaren Travelmate Pram Doll Carriage ($69.99 at Amazon.com). This one has a handle bar that adjusts up to 28″ tall. And it is stylin’, for sure, with a matching travel bag, folding hood, and removable apron.
Plus, just today I noticed this Polka Dot Pram ($79) in the Pottery Barn Kids catalog. It, too, has an adjustable handlebar- this one goes all the way up to 32.5 inches.
I hope this has helped. If any of you have lucked out with other doll carriages appropriate for older/taller girls, please do share them with us in the comments.
