  • Conclusion: The wise old owl of the buggy who’s been around long enough to know what little extras make the difference. It might not be the best for loading up with shopping but it’s so slim and easy to push you can’t complain.
  • Pros: Durable, lightweight, easy to fold, great sunhood and raincover, I got this buggy when our less expensive Maclaren imitation started to buckle under the weight of my then two-and-half year old Finn. It might look slightly bulkier than some of the other lightweights but what you lose in added weight (it’s 6.8kg) you more than gain in durability and strength. The umbrella fold mechanism is foolproof (although granny finds it a bit too stiff). The clip that holds the fol...
  • Cons: Not much storage space, tips when you take baby out if overloaded with bags, The buggy faces forwards and while the seat folds flat (or almost) making it fine for newborns I think most new mums will struggle not being able to see their newborn clearly. Lots of mums on the internet find the size of the shopping basket a problem, especially when coupled with the fact that if you hang your shopping on the handles and lift baby out of the buggy, everything tips over.

I have mixed feelings about this stroller. I love that it is super light, reclines nicely for a sleeping toddler, folds compactly, has adjustable footrests and is very durable. It does handle beautifully, have never had a problem with that.

Key FeaturesStroller TypeUmbrellaNumber of SeatsDouble / Twin SeatsHarness Points5-PointRec... So I have always wanted one of these, and now that my daughter is 2, I finally got one. My first impressions were that the feel of the handles and the ability to turn with extreme ease was beyond perfect. If you try another stroller out, you will know what I mean.

Key FeaturesStroller TypeUmbrellaNumber of SeatsDouble / Twin SeatsHarness Points5-PointRec... As I was expecting my first child, I did a ton of research on strollers. I love to walk and shop, so I knew I needed one that was convenient to use at home and away from home and one that would be comfortable for my child for a long time.

2008 Maclaren Techno XT

Strollers and Prams
29 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought this pram to suit my needs as a quick stroller that I could store in the boot of my car to use daily with my toddler daughter. I had previously owned a Bugaboo Bee which my child had outgrown and wanted a stroller that was great quality and had a few additional extras that would suit my stroller enthusiast needs! After owning this stroller for a month I am very happy with its style, functionality and accessories. It suits both my family and I well.
  • Pros: Handles different terrain well for a lightweight stroller thanks to 4 wheeled suspension, Compact one piece fold, 4 position recline, suitable for newborns upward, Comfortable seat, Deep double fold sun canopy for excellent sun protection, plus the additional rain canopy
  • Cons: The underseat basket is not the most accessible and is not made to hold anything substantial in weight, It is difficult to push this stroller one handed, The Maclaren is not really designed for long outdoor walks due to the smaller wheel size, The Maclaren Techno XT has a moderately expensive price tag
