We analyze the top Luvlap strollers and list their features in detail to save you the time and confusion of choosing the best stroller for your child.
While choosing a kids stroller, I and my wife got very confused and had to spend a lot of time understanding the different stroller features and companies.
Ideally, we wanted a made in India stroller because we truly believe in supporting Indian companies.
We chose Luvlap precisely because it was an Indian company but as we found out later almost 99% strollers available in the Indian market are made in china.
So we went in for the next best thing that is an Indian company that makes its strollers in China.
This post is a comprehensive one-stop read to decide on your choice of a Luvlap Stroller for your child.
Luvlap- The company
Luvlap is an in house brand of an Indian company, Universal Corporation Ltd.
The company offers many different products specializing in baby and mother care. It offers products in areas such as baby gear and toys, breastfeeding support, baby hygiene, and baby apparel.
Honestly speaking I was quite surprised to know that an Indian brand was dominating the competitive stroller market on amazon India.
The top five bestsellers strollers in India are from Luvlap.

Why buy a stroller for your child?
A stroller provides a lot of freedom and relief to a parent.
A young child likes movement and it isn’t always possible for the parents to move and hold the child for long times, especially as the child gets bigger and heavier.
As the child gets older, it gets irritated with constant body contact and sometimes just wants to lie down and enjoy the view while moving.
In the summers too, the baby will like being free in a stroller instead of sweaty arms of the Dad
A stroller provides you with that freedom. With a stroller you can:
- Take long walks, in your housing society park, with your little one without getting tired
- Take your baby shopping with you at a mall
- Show your baby the wonders of the world by taking him to new places
- Give your baby the comfort and protect them from rain and sun while going outdoors
Difference between a pram and a stroller
I am sure you must have heard pram and strollers being used interchangeably.
I was very confused about the real difference between a pram and a stroller until I did some research.
A Pram is designed to carry newborns and younger babies. Prams are usually used while the babies are lying down. The prams are quite rugged and generally can’t be folded flat like a stroller.
A stroller is used for older babies and can be folded when not in use. Strollers, by design, allow the kid to be in a sitting, half lying or a sleeping position.
Both terms show up the same products.
In India, you don’t need to worry about prams or strollers. Both terms show up the same results on online portals !!

Luvlap Galaxy Stroller User Review
We bought a Luvlap galaxy stroller from Amazon in January. I am ok with it except the fact that it is chinese made.
Anyway, any parent looking to avoid Chinese products does not have many choices since more than 80% – 90% of baby products in Indian markets (or world market) are made in China.
Here’s the receipt:
Here are a few review points that will help potential buyers:
- The stroller is extremely useful. It frees up parents arms and the baby is happy when sitting in the stroller. We use it indoors.
- The quality of the stroller is good except the reclining seat. In the upright position, it has slid back to relax position by itself while the baby was pushing against it. Nothing serious.
- The wheels are ok but we haven’t used it much.
- The installation was easy except we fixed the back wheel incorrectly. Later realized and fixed it. A couple of installation videos are available on YouTube
- Handling and movement of the stroller is easy
- It is a little heavy than I expected but can be folded and kept in the boot of a Maruti swift desire.
- The baby is very happy when looking through the looking window in the canopy.
- Folding button makes it very easy to fold
- The food tray is useful and in the upright position you can use this as a high chair
- I am happy with the stroller. It is a complete value for money product
Comparison with other brands
While Luvlap’s are the best selling strollers on the Internet, other companies sell their strollers online.
Luvlap’s domination of the stroller market is such that there are no other strollers in the top 5 best selling list on Amazon.
R for rabbit strollers is the closest we could find for comparison
You can take a look at the bestselling R for rabbit strollers here
The main reason for doing so was value for money.
We have not included premium brands like Chicco etc. mainly because the cost of these strollers is high and the comparison won’t be an apples to apples one.
How to get the best price
I recommend that you compare stroller prices on two of the biggest eretailers in India before you make a purchase.
You will find that most days Amazon is cheaper but flipkart can give you a good deal occasionaly.
Personally speaking I prefer Amazon since I have been a loyal customer for many years and rarely have I been disappointed.
Luvlap Strollers are a good value for money option.
It is a good bet for parents who have a budget as a primary concern.
The quality is acceptable when compared to the money that you are paying.
We have done extensive research and can safely say that you will not learn anything substantially new that is not covered in this post.
We hope you are now in a position to make a stroller purchase for your child.
