The best buggy around!

daisynova, Made for Mums
2 December 2010
  • Summary: I bought this buggy as we travel a lot and it is hands down the best buggy we have ever had. I originally bought the Pliko pramette from Mamas and Papas as it was the lightest pramette on the market but it soon became heavy and cumbersome when travelling. However this buggy is fantastic - lightweight, folds easily, comfy for my son, has been on literally hundreds of flights, the basket is a good size and the handles are comfirtable for pushing the buggy for long periods...
  • Pros: Folds easily, lightweight, lasts forever, survived hundreds of flights!
  • Cons: Rain cover is too small and rips easily

  • Summary: Fantastic quality product easy and simply to use but new 2009 designs keep it fresh and funky.
  • Pros: Easy, easy fold and recline mechanism, the best raincover too just clips onto hood. everyone should have a quest mod!
  • Cons: foam handles can be damaged over time new style maclaren round clip harnes, whilst childproof can sometimes be parent proof too!

Lightweight, durable & stylish

  • Summary: As far as strollers go you can't get much better than Maclaren, they are built to last a lifetime & certainly are durable yet stylish.
  • Pros: The Maclaren quest is a lovely lightweight pushchair, has good recline & is nice & easy to push even with a toddler riding in it. I love the different colourways which make it funky & fresh. The easy small fol makes it ideal for people that travel in a car a lot.
  • Cons: I didn't like the brake on the Quest, It can be a bit awkward to use and more often than not its just easier not to use it, I also think the price tag is a bit high considering it's one of their lower end strollers

I love this stroller

Sharon, mother of 2, diapers.com
13 July 2008
  • Summary: This is a great stroller! We had an older version (from 3 yrs ago), which was unfortunately damaged in a fire - otherwise I would be using it now for my new baby. I just got this as a gift, and I am very happy. The only point to keep in mind: It does NOT lay flat. The item description says "full incline", which should mean that it lays flat, but it does not. I have brought this up to customer service, and they said they will look into updating the description.

Dawn Robson, Made for Mums

  • Summary: Good buggy if you want something lightweight and easy folding and for occasional use, not suitable for longer journeys and every day use. I had a maclaren for my second child who is now 7 and it was fab so i bought another one for my 2 year old and i am really dissapointed with it, maclaren have really gone downhill since i first bought one of their buggys. Had to take the first one back through faults and the second one has faults too.
  • Pros: Good harness. Easy folding and very lightweight. Comfortable for baby. Comfortable handles to push. Good handle height if you are tall, im 5 ft 7 and its an ideal height for me.
  • Cons: Brake is very hard to put on and off, so much so that we dont bother using the brake any more so have to constantly hold the buggy! Brake also gets stuck on the back wheels alot so makes a 'clicking' sound when pushing it. Basket is useless when seat is lay back at any position. Leg rest is totally useless, unless you leave it up all the time then its so hard to do its useless.

  • Summary: Used it for both babies when young, and first child up until she was 3 (now on buggyboard). Keep thinking should replace it soon, but it just keeps going.
  • Pros: Quick and easy to unfold/fold. Can fit a buggy board easily.
  • Cons: After 3 years of use starting to get a bit creaky, wheels occasionally rubbing.

charles ross, Made for Mums
4 February 2008
  • Summary: One of the better pushchairs
  • Pros: easy to fold (whilst holding onto toddler with other hand) easy to carry reasonably small to store (& will store upright) good wide seating area (so older kids fit in easily
  • Cons: none really specific to this model, just the usual pushchair ones. Needs a better sun visor & something to help keep the bugs off, but then I just bought a Shadeababe which did the job well...

Best umbrella stroller

First time mom, diapers.com
30 August 2007
  • Summary: I went back and forth between Quest and Volo and a friend recomended Quest. It if fantastic. My son is almost a year old and is very comfortable in it. Compared to Volo, he can hap in this one comfortably due to reclining back rest and he does not slouch. Also, I am 5-10 and my husband is 6-4 and the handle height is perfect for us. The basket is just fine. The Quest Mod Black is very stylish just like I like it.

lighter than the techno w/ all of the features

mom of two, diapers.com
24 February 2007
  • Summary: this is our third maclaren stroller and they never disappoint. when our techno xt finally gave up after 3 years of tough use we needed another stroller that had the recline but wasn't as heavy. It's light, comfy for our 4 month old and the new mod in black looks pretty cool too.
