The fabulously wealthy as well as some of our favorite celebrities make a statement every time they step out on the street with one of these strollers.
If you want to be a known as a parent who will only buy the best for your little bundle of joy, you should take a look at some of the most expensive strollers and prams in the world today.

Bugaboo is the manufacturer behind some of the most expensive prams around.
The company first gained fame after a character on the television series “Sex & The City” bought one for her son.
After releasing its Donkey in 2011, the company saw the stroller sell out almost overnight. Fans bought the design long before it appeared in stores, and many shoppers found themselves on a long wait list just to track one down.
Kate Middleton made headlines in 2013 after buying a Bugaboo stroller for her child. Some reports indicated that she paid close to $2,000 to protect her little one.
(Hover over above image for latest pricing…) There is no mistaking the Stokke Trailz stroller when you see one on the street. In a word… “Swanky!!!”.
Between its sleek body style and gorgeous upholstery, this is the type of stroller that you sit up and take notice of on the street.
Tina Fey reportedly bought one of the company’s early models in 2003 while pregnant with her child, but other celebrities later jumped on the bandwagon and bought later editions.
The Scandinavian design house added elements that give the stroller a slightly mid-century modern design. Its most popular recent model, the Trailz, retails for four-figures, which is only for those who don’t need to ask about pricing (Actually, just hover over the above stroller image to see latest pricing).
You can buy extra features for the model too, including a liner made from real sheepskin and a kit for using the stroller in the winter making your purchase even more expensive!
Moms on the go with a larger budget love the 4moms Origami stroller, which isn’t quite as exensive as some of the other strollers we’ve shown, but it ain’t cheap neither. (Have a hover over the above photo to see pricing…)
One of the more unique features of this stroller is the placement of the wheels. And the fact that it can fold itself down. What?? Yes, that’s what we said. The video below explains better than we can.
Two centrally placed wheels at the front work with the stand back wheels to help you move easier as you push.
And as noted above, with one press of a button, you can fold the 4Moms stroller completely flat for storage at home or in your car.
It also has a built-in charger for mobile devices and an LCD screen. Super slick and fancy!
Silver Cross Balmoral Pram
Time to talk to you. You who come from old money. You who think that one should make a purchase that will stay in the family for multiple generations. Silver Cross is one of the oldest manufacturers of strollers in the world today, and the Silver Cross Balmoral Pram has a classic and traditional look that some of our more aristocratic parents love.Hover on photo to see latest pricing.
Larger wheels keep your baby from bouncing around inside, and between those wheels is a small metal storage basket for storing all your baby supplies.
Extra cushioning inside protects your child and helps your baby feel more comfortable. Even if you love the look of this pram, you might find yourself shocked at its plus-sized price tag (hover over image above). Also, if you are looking for something a little more…refined… there is a limited edition model of the Balmoral that has retailed for more than $50,000. But if you want only the best for your little tyke, then… it has to be done!
Silver Cross Kensington
Priced at a more comfortable range, the Kensington from Silver Cross is a little more affordable than the Balmoral but comes packed with some of the same great features.
One of the top reasons why so many of the rich and famous buy from Silver Cross is because the company gives them the right to customize their strollers. You can pick the colors used on the trim, fabric, awning and even the interior to make the stroller match your nursery or even your own car.
Though the Kensington doesn’t fold flat for storage, it does have a charming and traditional look.
Aston Martin Surf 2
Legendary car manufacturer Aston Martin partnered with Silver Cross to create a stroller that costs more than some cars do. Retailing for more than $4,000, the Aston Martin Surf 2 is a limited edition model that Silver Cross only sold through Harrods, the department store in London.
Some reports indicate that the company made just 600 of these strollers and that all strollers sold out in mere hours. Silver Cross added a chrome plate to each stroller to indicate that it is authentic and sent each customer home with a certificate of authenticity too.
Versace Book Plus Stroller Review
When Versace decided to release its own stroller, it went all out and added its iconic logo to all fabrics and coverings used on the stroller. A new addition to Harrods luxury department store is the Versace Modular System – The Book Plus.
Created to yield a beautifully convenient yet modular structure, the entire set includes a stroller, bassinet as well as a matching travel bag – (Can we say – YES PLEASE!!). The set is available in two variations: one a bold style in black neoprene and patent look-a-like leather, and the other a more chic style in white faux leather.
The Book Plus Stroller by Versace is the perfect modular unit for new born to three year old. A multi-purpose unit, the new stroller at Harrods is conveniently operable and comes bundled full of features. Though the stroller originally sold for around $3,800, most stores sold out in days or even hours. Yes, that’s right. SOLD OUT IMMEDIATELY!!!
If you manage to find one, you know, if you happen to be walking around London and spy one some mum left outside the cafe, just know that the adjustable base will let you switch back and forth between using it as a stroller, a rocker or a bed for your baby. Of course, Versace also added replica gold trim and soft and luxurious fabrics that will help your child drift off in lasting chic comfort.
So what do you think about the most expensive prams and strollers in the world today? Are you willing to invest more like the rich and famous did?
