I did a lot of shopping for a doll stroller before settling on this one, and I am pleased with my purchase. Doll strollers seem to fall into four categories: 1) cheap, flimsy umbrella strollers, 2) heavy-duty plastic strollers that don't fold up and start at around $40 (most of which play music and are annoying), 3) very pricey mini versions of adult strollers by the big stroller brands, and 4) astronomically expensive European buggies and wooden carriages. I wanted a cheap, flimsy umbrella stroller, since we are short on space and money. This was definitely the best one I found. I don't know what some of the other reviewers were expecting for this price.
This costs a tiny bit more than the $10-12 umbrella doll strollers, but unlike all the others in this category, it has front wheels that swivel, which makes it considerably easier for a toddler to push. The quality is somewhat better as well. Similar doll strollers being sold at the big box toy store for $10 had thinner plastic fabric seats with non-reinforced edges. The plastic wheels roll quite well on this stroller. It is easy to fold and unfold, and it fits our 15" Haba soft doll. There is a "T" of fabric that you put the doll's legs through. It does not have adjustable straps or clips or fasteners.
Our almost-two-year-old loves this stroller. Pushing it around with dolls and stuffed animals is her current favorite activity. It is definitely not sturdy enough for a new walker who might lean on it for support, however, as it will tip backwards if they lean on the handles. It does not come boxed, just covered in clear plastic packaging.
