To the rescue of housebound parents rides Mountain Buggy, a line of muscular all-terrain strollers from New Zealand. Like a souped-up jogger, the Terrain model’s fixed front wheel stays the course — be it litter­ed with tree stumps, rocks, or potholes. At only 18 pounds and collapsible, this baby travels. From $349. (866) 524-8805, www.mountainbuggyusa.com
