Good quality doll stroller?

(mods, I'm not sure this is the right forum...let me know if it's not)

My FIL is offering to get DD a birthday gift of our choice and so I took her current doll stroller to Goodwill and am looking for another. The ones I have seen in the store and the one she had are horribly cheap mini umbrella strollers that seem to break far too soon.

Any suggestions on a high-quality doll stroller? Does your DD have one that has lasted awhile?

We have a plastic one from Walmart that has lasted 2 years. It was about 10.00. Seems pretty indestructible.

Pottery Barn Kids has a few that look pretty decent but I don't have any experience with them. My IL's bought dd a Maclaren doll stroller (it also came with a pack n play and a bouncy seat) and it has held up so far, but she is only 18 months old It seems a little nicer than the cheaper versions from target or babies r us.

We have a pottery barn kids baby buggy and it can take a beating. It is really nice and DS (almost 2) hasn't hurt it yet and he can get pretty rough with it.

It gets a lot of use and abuse and its held up like new.

We have the umbrella from pottery barn and it is very good quality and sturdy. Worth the money. Got a $10 one and it was a piece of crap that always tipped when ds2 pushed it.

Thanks, everyone! I see the Pottery Barn mentioned a few times. Do you have to look in the store? I didn't see one on their website.

We have two. One is the one I had from when I was a kid. I believe my Mum said it came from the UK. The other one we have looks like a graco jogging stroller that my Mum found at a garage sale for $2. It holds up to both kids sitting in it and DS is 6 yr old and about 50 lbs. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20 it's similar to this one only ours is blue and a slightly older model.
