Almost anything can be upgraded for a price. Born in 1965, Maclaren is one of the oldest and respected brands in the stroller land. Celebs like Michelle Williams, Dave Grohl, and Melania Trump all chose the British-based buggies to tote their loved ones. While some opt for the less-expensive versions available at Toys 'R' Us, others pay a pretty penny for labeled versions.
Melania Trump pushes Baron in a pimped-out leather Maclaren ($3,800) and Geri Halliwell gives Bluebell a ride in the posh "Life Is a Bed of Roses," especially created by fashion designer Lulu Guinness. Lacoste, Burberry, Kate Spade, and others have also added their name to the list of specialty makers. When people are easily spending $900 on competitive brands like Bugaboo and Orbit Baby, the $300 Kate Spade buggy starts to look doable.
