Answer: Hi, It's very individual to be honest, for parents who are very active and want to jog/walk with their baby in a stroller then the three wheeler is seen as the more "sporty" type. But they can be more risky to use unless the wrist straps are used each and every time they're taken out. They can act as sails in the wind and build up some speed if not properly held onto and secured to the parent's wrist.The other issue can be that they are more prone to "tipping" over if a heavy toddler is in one. Think about the size of each and your car boot. The three wheelers can be big and bulky and take up more space. But in terms of manoeuvrability they tend to be very easy to use and have a small turning circle. You may want to speak with other parents to see what their experiences are; you'll find most parents are keen to share their ideas on what works and what doesn't. And another option is to check Choice magazine reviews for parents input and the individual findings of review panels. Best Jane
