Do you want large wheels, so you can take the kids over a variety if different kinds of terrains, then there is solid wheels, or air filled tires? Are you going to be using it when out jogging, or just for when you are taking the kids around to the store or the mall? Do you want something simple, or with a lot of storage space for toys, food, and drinks?
