Prams are the most common form of strollers. Perambulator or pram is a baby carriage used for carrying newborn babies. The baby lies down with their head facing the pusher.
Since Victorian era prams have been being used in the UK. Over the years it has been a blessing for all mothers. The whole process of riding has become much easier. The baby feels comfortable riding on this child vehicle. The person pushing the pram undoubtedly finds it much easier than carrying their babies in hand. The prams of 1970s came with a detachable body known as a carrycot. Nowadays prams are rarely used. Being large and expensive this form of baby carriage ceased to exist. Silver Cross is one of the best brands of prams in the UK. The product was first manufactured in 1877, in Guiseley, near Leeds. Later on the factory has been closed down.

Strollers were popularly called Pushchair in the UK till the early 1980s. Suddenly a more compact design came to the fore which was light and was made with a simpler engineering form and was named as buggy. Within a short period of time it became the trend of the day.

This form of strollers were first designed and patented by the British aeronautical designer Owen Maclaren buggy. 1965 was the year when this style of strollers was first designed. In American English buggy is almost synonymous with the word baby carriage itself. Newer versions of strollers can definitely be configured to carry a baby lying down or sitting.
