Dolls' prams are the perfect toys for toddlers. Not only do they encourage imaginative play, but when your little one is too big for the baby walker, toy pushchairs are great at providing stability when they start walking. To save you some time, we've searched for the best dolls' prams to buy for your toddler. These will provide them with hours (and years!) of fun.

Toddlers learn about the world each day, and one way they do that is through imaginative play, which is also important for toddler development. Dolls' prams are a great way to introduce pretend play, as toddlers are familiar with the concept of a pram, and tots can enjoy playing without getting frustrated or overwhelmed by the toy.

There are loads of adorable designs available on the market, so we've rounded up the best that your little one will love. Don't be surprised when you end up wheeling your child's pushchair in tandem with their own mini dolls pram on trips to the shops or local park.

Best 2-in-1 stroller

A simple, no-frills option that's also super affordable, this buggy is available for dolls up to 56cm and is suitable for toddlers aged three years and up. It folds away nicely, so it's perfect if you're low on space.

Pros: Accommodates larger-sized dolls, gender-neutral, affordable, folds for storage
Cons: Not the most durable compared to some other prams

Review: "Absolutely love this! Purchased to replace a very well-loved similar one that we've had for years and broke. It is super lightweight, much more so than the £10 it is replacing. Great value for money, definitely worth a buy. We have a bigger one that my 5-year-old pushes around and it was just too big for my 2-year-olds, this is the perfect size and so easy for them to use. Nice and sturdy which I wasn't expecting. My husband folded it away last night after a day of play and he didn't swear or give up so not too hard to fold down either."

What age are dolls prams for?

The beauty of a child's imagination is that they can continue to role-play for years to come. As a result, you can find dolls' prams for toddlers from 18 months, all the way up to 12 years old.

However, it will come as no surprise that you'll likely need to buy a larger version as they get older to prevent them from stooping over. You'll also want to pick one that's more age-appropriate to maximise your child's fun and development.

What is the best handle height for different ages?

Most dolls' prams come with a recommended age suitability. But as a general guide, My Doll Best Friend advises the following pram handle heights for different ages:

18 months to three years old: 45cm

Three to five years old: 55cm

Six-years-old: 65cm

Seven-years-old: 75cm

Eight-years-old: 85cm

Nine to 13-years-old: 87-95cm

However, this can vary depending on your child's development. If they're taller than average, opt for a pram with a taller handle height.

If you're after a dolls' pram to go the distance, opt for one with adjustable handles so it can comfortably grow with your little one.

Which pushchair brands make dolls' prams?

If your child loves to imitate you, they'll love a mini copy of their own pram or pushchair, or the one they see mum and dad pushing their younger siblings in.

You'll find that actually, quite a few major baby and pushchair brands create dolls' prams of their own. These include:

Cosatto is renowned for its beautifully patterned strollers and prams that kids love. And now, they can get a mini version for their dolly. Cosatto has a range of pram designs with colourful and cute patterns including 'Fairy Garden', 'Unicorn Land', and 'Mister Fox'.

Mamas & Papas is home to some award-winning prams, and its doll prams are just as stylish. There are fun polka-dot design strollers, prams, and pushchairs. Or for something a little more premium, opt for the Ocarro Elite Dolls Pram - a mini version of the Ocarro pram that features in our pick of the best travel systems.

Retailers such as Argos, Amazon, and Very stock Maxi-Cosi toy prams in collaboration with Quinny from Smoby. The range is limited to a pram and twin doll pushchair, but both are fun and practical.

Joie also stocks their own dolls' prams, available from Argos, Amazon, Smyths Toys, and Very. Featuring a fun, geometric purple design, you can get it every which way; a twin pram, a 3-in-1, a stroller, a pushchair, and even a full set with matching bouncer and beds.
