Nice Stroller, but...

  • Excerpt: Maclaren strollers are high quality strollers with some nice features. As a mom of twins, I knew I would need a high quality double stroller. I like the fold of this stroller. It folds up smaller than other double strollers. It folds umbrella style and can fit in most trunks. The weight of this stroller is in line with most other double strollers. This stroller offers a recline with three levels. So, the stroller can be used for all ages.

Maclaren Twin Techno - Not Worth It!

cbvt, Viewpoints
25 February 2014
  • Excerpt: We used the Maclaren Twin Techno occasionally for our twins. It was recommended by friends as a good "umbrella-type" double stroller. Our main stroller was always the City Mini double, which rides like a dream but is bulky when folded and not the best for travel beyond local destinations. When flying out of the country we wanted something more compact and went with the Maclaren Twin Techno... Big Mistake!

Nice, compact stroller for older babies.

  • Excerpt: I bought this for a 18 month old and three month old figuring I'd save myself the cost and bulk of a full-sized double. I ha a single Maclaren already & loved it. It was a good purchase for these purposes, but I regret getting it with a newborn. It doesn't recline entirely flat, and the shade doesn't cover his face when reclined and facing the sun. We've also had a problem with the canopy sagging down. Not sure if that's how it's supposed to be or we installed it wrong.

Maclaren Twin Techno Stroller

  • Excerpt: So, I bought the Maclaren Twin Techno Stroller when my second child was a toddler. I returned it about 2 weeks later. The "fold" is not easy - especially when wrestling (keeping an eye on) two kids. The canopy is pretty short, thus there is no real sun protection to speak of. All in all - a nice looking stroller, but I wouldn't recommend.

It is one of the smaller side-by-sides but it is hard to push with one hand.

Lynne Baines, Made for Mums

  • Summary: Hard to push with one hand can't reclined the seats with one hand ad u have two recliner on each side of the basket. Can't get into the basket when seat is reclined. Cosy toes only used til 6months raincover to tight round the legs as mine got ripped when I fastened them to the sides of the pram. I liked the cup holders on the back and the hoods with sunshades on them also the head higher that comes with it.
  • Pros: Nice hoods with a viewing window and sunshade. Cup holders Head huggers and seat belt pads
  • Cons: Too big for busses and shops Seats too small for toddlers Raincover too tight round legs Can't push it with one hand as only two handles not three need two hands to recline seat U have to be strong to push it when u have a toddler in one side and a newborn in the other U can't get into the basket when seats are down

it does the job, but doesn't make life easy

  • Excerpt: The Twin Traveller looks good, but it's really difficult to use.   Folding the stroller, for example, requires an advanced degree in aeronautical physics, and extremely good hand-eye coordination.  The fabric is not washable, and Lord help you if your seats ever get damp, because the little black dots appear and multiply quickly.

high price tag but good overall quality

  • Excerpt: I purchased this stroller after some serious research into doubles, and knew that we'd be putting a dent in the budget by picking this one. However, I was really hoping to get a little more bang for my buck. The pros of this stroller is that it washes well, folds outrageously compact, is very light weight, which makes it great for someone who has a small car, trouble lifting, or lives in the city.

GOOD QUALITY BUT FAR TOO WIDE & HEAVY

Cheryl Benner, Made for Mums
24 September 2008
  • Summary: Great quality just not practical, I sent mine to the Salvation Army Charity Shop within a couple of months.
  • Pros: Nice Quality. The seating positions are good especially for a baby. I really liked the handle padding and the little clear window in the hood.
  • Cons: Ooh where to begin... I found this pushchair far too wide for shopping & doorways yet the seats were far too narrow! I walk miles with my children and this pushchair was far too heavy to push one handed so my toddler could walk. Shopping bags didn't fit over the handles nor down the back. I rarely got space on the bus. Storage was a real issue too.

I am as big as a truck, but I fit through the door!

  • Excerpt: My kids are 17 months apart. So, I was desperate to find a good side-by-side stroller that protected them from the sun, gave me a bit of storage room, yet allowed them to chat with each other. I of course had a much longer criteria list such as: must fit through a regular door, cant be too heavy for me to lift and cant be too heavy for me to push.
