The Maclaren website only features the Twin Techno and not the Twin Traveller. I’ve got all the standard descriptions from reviews and online stores. I need to find out what’s the main difference(s) between them ? which is better ?

I was shopping around for a lighter stroller and I was told that Maclaren was the best. But when I went to purchase this stroller my sister said that all Maclaren strollers have been recalled. She said that all of the strollers were recalled due to reports of finger amputations. Has any one else hear about this recall and is it true? Reply jdeabs: February 5, 2012 at 7:34 am
Where can I get a cheap Maclaren stroller?I want to get a Maclaren twin double stroller and I am willing to spend over $200 for onebut then on ebay the same ones are selling for under $170, where are they getting them so cheapthat they can sell them for that little? Anyone know where they get them? Thanks!Reply wwhrd: March 1, 2012 at 11:00 pm Zeus is right. There are Maclaren distributors that buy in bulk and can sell cheaper on eBay. They’re operating costs are cheaper than Babies R Us, that’s for sure. I bought my Maclaren at Babies R Us and found it $50 cheaper on eBay – I was not happy. I would go for the one on eBay, be sure after shipping charges it’s still a bargain. Have you checked babystyle.com yet? They have free shipping on lots of stuff so I’d check with them, too. Good luck, Mama. Take care.

I also see Combi a lot, but I have heard they are hard to steer.Which should I go with?I won’t be driving much in the city, but will head out to Long Island on trips later this summer. Is itreally worth it to get a Britax?My son is 11 months and will be switching out of his carrier VERY soon. We have been using aBaby Trend snap-and-go with his car seat, but it’s time to think more long term. Please help.Replypolly:February 7, 2012 at 4:57 pmWhat is the difference between the Maclaren Volo and the Maclaren Quest strollers?Reply kanpope: March 3, 2012 at 7:55 pm Volo is 8.6 pounds, carries up to 55 pounds, is best after 6 months, does not recline, has a 4.5 inch wheel, and has a square hood.

ReplyFondantCakex3:February 10, 2012 at 2:25 amChicco Liteway? or Maclaren xlr? Strollers…?I cant decide. My son is already 1 & we’re searching for a good light stroller.So far Im stuck on these…Chicco Liteway is cheaper $115, maclaren is about $290-360 (*&more expensive.)They both recline (which is something that comes in handy…)! & they don’t come with cup holders!Which would you go with? Which stroller do you have?Reply mamm23: February 24, 2012 at 10:51 pm I have a Graco and I love it. It has many cupholders, shock absorbers, and it fits my two year old great. It folds up pretty small also. I would never spend the money on a Maclaren, it just seems silly to me when I found one so much cheaper that I like so much better. Replyjj:February 14, 2012 at 5:48 pmIf you have owned both a Maclaren stroller and a cheaper stroller, do you think theMaclaren is worth it?I’m thinking of getting a lightweight stroller soon and I’m torn between getting a cheap one andgetting a Maclaren which are supposedly longer lasting and better. I had a look at some today andthe Maclaren wheels didn’t seem that much better compared to other strollers.So for those of you that have owned a Maclaren and a cheaper stroller, how do you rate Maclarens?Are they worth the extra money?Reply LP: February 15, 2012 at 11:06 pm i’ve had a few prams, pushchairs and strollers at this stage and the best one by far is the Maclaren stroller that we have. I wish it was the first one i bought instead of the last. I was simply tired of turning up at mothercare about once a year to purchase a new pushchair when i bought the maclaren. 8 months on and it still looks and feels new despite being used daily for a now 2 year old. The model we have is Maclaren Techno XT. it is suitable from birth as it lies flat and the seat comes straight up (i.e. it doesn’t lean back when it is at it’s upright position like some other models). i would most definitely recommend getting a maclaren. the only backside is that the shopping basket isn’t very big but it is sturdy enough to hang shopping bags on the
shopping basket isn’t very big but it is sturdy enough to hang shopping bags on the handles without it looking like you’re bending the pushchair (unlike the quinny zapp). ReplyNoah is 3!:February 14, 2012 at 9:01 pmWARNING! RECALL ON MACLAREN STROLLERS DUE TO AMPUTATION OF FINGERS!?This is a warning to all parents to not buy or to return their Maclaren strollers. the hingeson the strollers have been cutting infants fingers off!http://www.abc.net.au/worldtoday/content…please keep your children safe!http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/33787728/?GT1=43001Reply Mr Awesome: February 26, 2012 at 4:42 pm Well if your baby was born with 6 fingers this stroller could be a blessing in disguise! ReplyAnonymous:February 16, 2012 at 6:20 amI just heard Maclaren Strollers have amputated kids fingers! They are being recalled inUSA, why not the UK?Is the Maclaren stroller actually safe to use? Please help, because we’ve just bought a brand newMaclaren for our Son and now we’re really worried about using it!Reply HappyMum: February 22, 2012 at 1:56 pm Maclaren and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have announced a volutary recall of Maclaren Strollers. The stroller has a hazardous hinge mechanism which has caused fingertip amputation and laceration to children when the buggy is unfolded or opened. The firm has received 15 reports of children placing their finger in the stroller’s hinge mechanism, resulting in 12 reports of fingertip amputations in the United States. They are not recalling the Maclaren strollers in the UK due to the Trading Standards Institute receivng few complaints. However, if you are a concerned parent and wish to get the safety repair kit being sent out to US parents then go to Mindful Mum where you can download an email template requesting the repair kit in the UK. I heard two different reports of UK incidents where children accidently got their fingers trapped in the hinge. Yes, of course you have to be carefully when assembling any equipment near children, but accidents do happen. Maclaren should just make the safety repair kits available and we will all be happy. MODELS INCLUDE: Volo, Triumph, Quest Sport, Quest Mod, Techno XT, TechnoXLR, Twin Triumph, Twin Techno and Easy Traveller. ReplyAnonymous:February 18, 2012 at 11:08 amCombi Twin Sport vs Maclaren Twin Triumph Strollers?I’m interested in both the Combi Twin Sport and the Maclaren Twin Triumph for my 3month old twin boys. Anyone have, or tested out either of these strollers? Your thoughts, please!Reply Scoob-E: March 6, 2012 at 9:42 am We originally got the Combi Twin for our baby shower, but I wound up getting to aggrivated with how crappy it was..I always kicked the back wheels when I pushed it, and my husband couldnt even push it while walking directly behind it, he had to walk to the side because the wheels are at a wierd angle. I begged my husband to invest in the Maclaren after only 2 months of using the Combi! We now have the Twin Techno. I love it! Its super durable, and quality made. I am 5’5″, and my husband is 6’3″, and this is the only stroller that we both can push, without being uncomfortable (not kicking the back wheels, and a good handle position). The stroller is made with quality, and it doesnt feel like its going to fall apart….even 2 years later, it looks and pushes like its brand new! The Combi felt like it was going to break after a few months. The Maclaren has a huge under carriage basket that will fit a large diaperbag. Also, this is my favorite part, the stroller seat is completly machine washable….EXPECIALLY with twin 3-year olds. It folds very compactly, and is completly weather proof. The only thing I dont like, is that it didnt come with a cup holder. ReplyPampernator:February 23, 2012 at 8:08 amAnyone use the Maclaren strollers?My son is 5 months, and we currently use his Graco quatro one that his base seat snapson to….. however, since he’s getting bigger and lifting the car seat with him in it is hard work (lol) Idon’t want to always be strapped to the quatro stroller and I’d like to get a lightweight smallstroller… since he’s getting to the point where he can sit up I thought nows the time to start looking.I really happened to like the maclearan… anyone else use the maclaren? How did you like it?Reply Hannahs mommy: February 28, 2012 at 12:51 am
February 28, 2012 at 12:51 am I have the Graco quatro stroller, and bought the Maclaren Quest when my daughter was 6 months old. I love the Quest…it is so light weight and easy to use. My daughter is very comfortable in it. I use the Maclaren for quick outings, and that is the one I keep in my car always. I use the Graco for longer outings, such as the zoo, because of the big basket, and cups holders, etc. I think you will be happy with the Maclaren Quest…it also has a really high weight limit, so you can use it for a long time. ReplyCandy:February 24, 2012 at 1:46 pmAre the Maclaren Volo strollers a bright color such as saffron or crimson and white or is itcolor and gray?Reply john m: February 26, 2012 at 7:16 am I found a helpful guide on strollers here on ebay. ReplyS M:February 24, 2012 at 6:48 pmAny Maclaren stroller owners have issues with clicking noise with the brakes?I just bought the Maclaren Quest sport stroller but I am about to return it because thebrake mechanism seems to click on the spokes making an annoying noise while pushing thestroller. Have you had this problem? For a $200 umbrella stroller it should not have issues.Reply Michelle: February 29, 2012 at 4:40 pm Nope I have never had that problem with either of my Maclaren’s. But you could exchange it at the store or call Maclaren and they will fix it. ReplyMe:February 29, 2012 at 9:42 pmdoes the maclaren juicy couture footmuff fit on any of the other maclaren strollers?Just wondering if anyone has tried it out. Already have a maclaren stroller but love thejuicy footmuff so was hoping to add that but not sure if it fits.

I know they have 5 second fold and their lightweight, and all theseother great features, but what do you love about them and what is so awesome about them?Thanks.Reply Laura O is a Mummy!: March 4, 2012 at 2:24 am You’re right.. they’re no bugaboo that’s for sure. Replyemmaleigh:March 4, 2012 at 1:00 amare Maclaren strollers good for country roads?…and in the heavy snowing places?Reply Hannahs mommy: March 5, 2012 at 1:51 am No. I have the Maclaren Quest stroller and it is really only good on smooth to fairly smooth surfaces. If you are going to be walking on country roads and places with snow, invest in a good jogging type stroller. They have larger wheels and some even have shocks.

online. Reply jesssssmd: March 6, 2012 at 2:09 pm Off the top of my head.. We just moved in the beginning of my pregnancy.. I knew I didn’t wanna do the 6 story walkup all 9 months. There is a Maclaren store http://gocitykids.parentsconnect.com/browse/attraction.jsp?id=287481 Planet Kids on the UES http://gocitykids.parentsconnect.com/browse/attraction.jsp?id=8368 (I’m assuming you mean the City..) Reply Kittysue: March 5, 2012 at 3:46 am Which is better – Maclaren or Bugaboo strollers and why? One of the women at work is pregnant and we are looking to buy her a nice stroller as a company gift. I have looked at Bugaboo and Maclaren and don’t know which one is better – which is more durable? Easier to transport? I should also say this woman is a bit of a fashion plate and is concerned about her image, so is one of these considered more stylish than the other? She’s the type that is into designer sunglasses, handbags, etc. Honestly I have no clue but am in charge of picking out the gift this time. Reply Anonymous: March 5, 2012 at 4:44 pm if thats the case .get her a gift voucher towards the cost of a pram for mams and papers and she can get the one she wants she will probable appreciated it more if she can chose her own baby’s or maybe a family member is already getting her one you dont want to put her into an awkward situation trust me Reply Suki: March 5, 2012 at 8:20 am What is the different between Maclaren Stroller xlr 2007, 2008 &2009? What is the different between Maclaren Stroller xlr 2007, 2008 &2009? Reply Baxters Dad: March 5, 2012 at 9:17 pm MacLaren Strollers, Quest v. Triumph v. Techno XT? Looking for a second stroller for NYC mom. Bumbleride Flyer is our main ride. The Triumph looks good because of the shoulder strap. The Quest looks good because its so light. The Techno XT looks good because its got so many bells and whistles. We have a MacLaren frame that goes with the Graco car seat- it was our newborn stroller. Anyone with feelings one way or another, please respond. Also, any recommendations as to where to purchase one (and ony promo codes therein) would be greatly appreciated. Reply ChibiKris: March 5, 2012 at 11:28 pm We chose the Triumph over the Quest because the Quest didn’t have enough to warrant the jump in price. They both can be used at 6 months and above. The Quest’s leg extension flap has failed on many of my friends’ models so it will not stay in the upright position. The Triumph’s carry strap is WONDERFUL! I would go with the Triumph again in a heartbeat if I was purchasing another one. I got mine off an eBay seller. ReplyLeave a Reply Name (required) Mail (will not be published) (required) Website
