  • Conclusion: The Maclaren Triumph is just shy of being the perfect lightweight stroller, as you can't put a newborn in it. Spendy? Yes. Worth it? Absolutely.

Made for Mums

  • Conclusion: Lightweight with an easy, quick folding mechanism, the Maclaren Triumph is great for mums who need something compact and portable. Useful if you don’t want to be pushing around a heavy travel system buggy once your child is a toddler, and also perfect for taking on holiday from about the age of 6 months. Just don’t try to carry too many groceries home in it.
  • Pros: Weighs just 5kgs, so easy to lift, fold and manoeuvre., The Triumph is so light it makes life simple if you’re going out alone with your baby. It’s easy to lift in and out of the car or to take onto public transport. The best thing, though, is the fact it’s so easy to fold and unfold. Often when manufacturers claim you can do this it’s not that easy, but in this case it really is – you just flick the clip up, then collapse it down, and vice versa. And because once it’...
  • Cons: Backrest is hard to adjust,, Maclaren claims the Triumph is suitable from 3 months, though you’re unlikely to use it for a baby this young as it doesn’t offer the comfort of other sturdier buggies. Plus this would mean your baby is facing away from you, which isn’t ideal at such a young age. The backrest is hard to adjust and also doesn’t go as upright as I’d have liked when Jack was old enough – he’s now 18 months and I always feel as though he’s far too reclined, bu...

In response to Mr. Goldman’s prior review why he doesn’t recommend this stroller…READ the directions and safety warnings!! Every stroller manufacturer says NEVER hang bags from the handle bars for safety reasons because a stroller can become unstable and tip over.

We were looking for an umbrella stroller to take on vacation with us. We test drove a number of umbrella strollers at Babies-R-Us, and found that the price ranges were cheap to ridiculously high. But we liked the Maclaren Triumph and decided to get it.

Maclaren is known for it’s innovative quality strollers and the Triumph is no exception. To review this stroller, I will start at the top and work my way down. Opening this stroller is a breeze. There is a small clamp on the bottom of the stroller that you simply pull open.

I used a bulky stroller that was a gift for the first five months of her life. After the first plane trip, I knew I need a change- something easier for traveling and lighter. My sister-in-law recommended a Maclaren and I am very thankful.

You don’t know the worth of a good umbrella stroller until you have tried to go Christmas shopping with one of those free umbrella strollers from Toys R Us. They are worse than a shopping cart! This Maclaren has been a lifesaver.

My son was 18 months and the Kolcraft stroller that we had bought when he was born was starting to tear at the ends of the fabric. I knew that we needed another stroller, but I hated to use the big stroller systems and really loved how convenient and lightweight umbrella strollers are.

Last spring, I decided that it was time to buy a lightweight stroller. Our existing stroller which was compatible with our daughter’s car seat was tough to collapse and open.
