My son got diagnosed with Leukemia last year, he was 4 years old then weighing approximately 14 kgs. But this is treatable in his case and it takes more than 3 years to treat this. In the meantime he has or will be having lot of trouble walking. Normal pushchairs can only hold children up to a certain weight. Maclaren's Major Elite buggy is specially designed for older children with special needs or for disabled kids . My son was around 15 kilos and he was out of his pushchair habit already. But Leukemia changed everything. His treatment included taking steroids which meant he would increase wight by 2-3 kilos in a very short time. His chemotherapy meant he ... Read the complete review

Absolute Godsend!! My Daughter has just been granted a Maclaren Major by her Child's special needs social worker for her 5 year old disabled Son. This buggy has changed their lives. My Daughter was a bit reluctant to get one, because she thought her little boy would 'stand out' and be stared at, but she finds that actually, although it is obviously a buggy designed for disabled kids, she tends to receive more help on and off buses e.t.c. as people realise the child is disabled, and seem more compassionate and sympathetic. The buggy is light, well designed, and although it doesn't recline, my Grand-son does sleep comfortably in it. It is light and ... Read the complete review

My son is disabled and when he started getting too big for a regular stroller our physiotherapist referred us to the wheelchair service. We asked to get the Major but the physio was reluctant because she felt it didn't provide enough support. The wheelchair service gave us a large comfortable pushchair which whilst it suited our sons needs is really big and cumbersome and didn't really fit in our carboot. We decided to buy the Major as a backup for travelling etc. Price: The Maclaran Major is more expensive than other Maclaren buggies and is considerably more expensive with less features. It only has one position - can't lie back and doesn't come with any ... Read the complete review

Maclaren Major Elite - Advantages: High level of comfort for child throughout the seasons, Great street cred! Its so up to date in technology and style, Unbelievably easy to fold up, fold down, store, manooovre, push , get in and out of shops, up and down hills - the worlds' your oyster with this buggy, it knocks the socks off other buggies made with special needs families in mind! - Disadvantages: Can't think of any disadvantages except that if you buy the buggy from new you only get the basic structure buggy and will need to buy all the extras separately, but I would rather by the ones I need than pay for them and not use them, It's so tough it's difficult to see it wearing out, what a shame for those of us who like to shop- it won't need replacing for yearrrs., I'ts only made in single buggy form at the moment I think, perhaps one day they will adapt it to a tandem for those of us who love it so much but need to transport two children (or more).
