Maclaren Volo

Strollin': Maclaren Volo

Perhaps one of the oldest and most trusted brands of strollers is Maclaren. Known for their ease of use and simple style, the English born brand is a top seller worldwide. The hard part comes when you have to pick which Maclaren to purchase.

Available in a variety of spunky colors, the Maclaren Volo is the lightest stroller option weighing in at 8.6 pounds. Crafted with high performance aluminum, the basic buggy collapses with a quick step on a switch and a pull of the toe. Using just one hand, a mommy can easily toss the stroller in the trunk or use the attached strap to throw it over her shoulder.

To see why I gave this stroller a high rating,

.

While the Volo may not provide the plush ride — it lacks cushy seats and fancy headrests — it does have a footrest, a water resistant hood, foot accessible breaks, easy-to-manage five point harness straps, a washable fabric seat, and a rain cover. It also boasts one of the larger storage baskets under the seat, which means parents can slip goodies into the carry-all without putting too much weight on the handles. If, however, you plan on toting around a hefty load, don't count on leaving your goodies on the handlebars as your tot's weight combined with the nearly nine pound stroller may not be a match for your lofty groceries. The last thing you want to tip is your child!

At $115, the push chair isn't cheap. But from my perspective, the ease, durability, and comfort that this stroller provides, especially when traveling or running errands, is priceless.

We will be finishing off our mini season of original stroller reviews with a special giveaway in October. Stay tuned for more details.

Have it. Love it. Only wish it had adjustable handles (to make them higher). We have this plus used a snap and go when ours were babies. No other strollers.
