The 5 Best Strollers for Tall Parents

– the 5 best strollers for tall parents complete review!

Following my post on the best strollers for short moms, I thought it nice to also have a post specifically for tall parents. Because just as short parents have issues with too tall strollers, tall parents also have issues with strollers that are too short and result in back aches from hunching over. 

For tall parents, the ideal stroller to buy is one with an adjustable handlebar height. This allows you to adjust the handlebar to a height that’s comfortable for you, and as a bonus, if you have a shorter partner, the height can also be adjusted to what’s comfortable for them. 

This article gives you the 5 best strollers with a height adjustable handlebar and also strollers with a handlebar height that is at least 42 inches above ground – which is the recommended handlebar height for parents who are at least 6 ft tall.
