  1. Logan's Mommy on May 15th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    My son is 20 months and is very big for his age (34″ tall and 27lbs). I became sick and tired of the bulky travel system stroller we had, so I sold it. We also have a Chicco c6 umbrella type stroller and although it worked for us, I wanted something with a few more ammenities and a higher weight limit. I went and tested out some strollers at Babies R Us and fell in love with this stroller. I ended up getting it cheaper on another website and anxiously awaited it’s arrival. I was thrilled […]. I pulled the stroller out of the box and was pleased that it came completely assembled. Once I started to check it out I became a little disappointed. The two main things that bug me are the leg area (there doesn’t seem to be enough support under the knee area), and the fact that my son already seems to barely fit in this stroller. My main reason for purchasing this stroller was because it’s supposed to last until he reaches 55lbs. I don’t realistically see that happening. The seat back is only about 1/2″ taller than my Chicco C6 and the shoulder straps are the same height. The Chicco C6 is only meant to hold a child up to 35lbs…what gives??? The Maclaren is nice…the fabric is nicer, it has some extra ammenities, and it is super easy to push and steer…I don’t, however, think it is worth the price. Here’s a complete list of pros and cons: Pros: -Very nice to push…very smooth and turns on a dime -Higher handles than most, so no hunching over (they’re also foam-padded for extra comfort) -the wheels are impossible to kick while you’re pushing it (a major problem with the Chicco C6) -Decent sunshade -Reclines to a comfortable position for a sleeping baby -Decent-sized basket for an umbrella stroller -Handy pocket in the back…perfect for cell phone, keys, wallet & a camera -Fairly easy to fold/unfold -Compact when folded, so you still have lots of room in the trunk Cons: -Weight limit is unrealistic…the seat should be a little taller -Leg rest offers little support…it’s kind of pointless -Basket is not easily accessible -Sunshade doesn’t compare with those of the big travel system strollers -Harness is slightly annoying and difficult to seems like it may be a little uncomfortable for the child -Not much room between the seat and the footrest. My 20 month old reaches the footrest perfectly, but once he gets slightly older he’ll be scrunched I guess that’s all. If you can get a good deal on it, then I would say to go ahead and get it. I do like this stroller, but in my opinion, it isn’t really isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Knowing what I know now, I probably would’ve just saved all the money and dealt with our Chicco C6.

    Not to many dads comment on these reviews but I felt I should on this one. We got the stroller a couple of months ago and my wife and I love it. Not to mention our 10 mth old son. We like how small it fold which makes it great for flying on an airplane. I would suggest anyone who travel a lot to get this stroller its great.

    Why doesn’t anybody make the perfect stroller? It seems like that would be possible to do. Well, this one is far from perfect IMO. I thought for the price it’d be great, but there are many annoyances. For it’s price, I wouldn’t recommend it.


    maneuvers well even one-handed
    compact fold for travel and light weight


    sunshade does not adjust well and pops back up from its position. there’s no way to tighten it into position and there’s like 2 positions, so it’s very frustrating.

    no cup holder/snack tray for little ones or parents.

    TIPS with anything hanging on it over 1 pound. It’s okay with child in seat, but remove child and BOOM it falls backwards. You’d think you’d remember to remove items before lifting child, but when child is crying or you’re in a rush for some reason, you forget. Once I spilled a whole drink on the floor from an add-on cup holder.

    basket is so small, no room for diaper bag, so you must carry it. you can fit a lunch bag and maybe a blanket, but that’s it. if seat is reclined you can’t get into basket.

    no padding. i had to make a seat pad for her tushie. i guess you can order one for an extra cost

    straps are so annoying, they’re constantly turning so it’s hard to get them into position to buckle them. and they are high up on seat, so for smaller children (mine’s 29 inches tall) there’s lots of slack. And, they are difficult to tighten, you have to fuss with the buckles and loosen them then pull up slack, then tighten.

    bumpy ride on rough sidewalks or street.

    sometimes front wheels turn and get stuck on lower shelves in stores.

    This stroller is everywhere where I live. I thought that because of that it would be a great stroller. I was wrong!
    Okay, it’s lightweight-that’s handy for traveling and everyday uses.

    The paperwork states that it’s easy to fold.

    The color scheme is nice.

    CONS: Ugh-where do I begin? I would take it back if I could, but unfortunately I already used it.

    It tips over way to easily-drives me crazy. Just put a purse on the back and it tips over.

    The straps are very frustrating to adjust. My husband and I spent 30 minutes trying to adjust them.

    The sunshade is very small. I spent more money buying a larger sunshade cover.

    The price. Wow. I thought you got what you paid for, but definitely not in this case. It’s too expensive for what you get.

    Basket-it’s small but really I don’t expect a big one for an umbrella stroller.

    Folding–it is not an easy fold!!!

    I would buy the city mini jogger instead. Same price-better sunshade, easier to fold…

    This is an umbrella stroller, yet I read that it has a small storage basket, most don’t even have one, no cup holder, well its an umbrella stroller, plus if you read the description it states that no cupholder so why complain about something that is clearly stated.

    What I love about this stroller is, its very sturdy, and the weight capacity is upto 45 lbs which is great for a stroller that only weighs 12 pounds. I have another stroller that weighs twice as much yet only hold upto a 40lb child.

    The folding of the stroller is super simple, read the instructions, I’ve taken this stroller to Disney more than 5 times and have no complaints.

    Yes if you put something on the back of the stroller and the seat is empty it will tip over because the stroller is so light but that would be logical to me? I bought a stroller bag that clips on and I just push it as far down as possible and the stroller does not tip over, and its a full diaper bag full of bottles food and clothes.

    All in all, read the description, if it doesn’t come with it then how can you complain about it?Try it out in the store.
