Advantages: Easy to wheel and operate, light, folds down simply
Disadvantages: Not a lot of storage space
We bought a new Maclaren Quest buggy in early December from Bargains Direct in order to replace the old broken monstrosity that we had (and yes, dear reader, a review of that will follow). From day one we have marvelled at our new carriage. It goes straight and it doesn't need the upper-body strength of Geoff Capes to push. (I realise that the youngsters among you may need to Google Geoff Capes). Believe me, that is a significant step forward from the last pushchair we had. We were also pleased to see that the raincover we already had fitted the new model as did our existing CosyToes. The chair folds down easily and so is simple to store. Also pleasing is the fact that the brake is easy to apply - something that was difficult on the previous pushchair we owned. For the price (£89.99) we couldn't really have expected more from a buggy. Oh, ok then, one complaint (you really are a tough audience) - it would be nice if there were a little bit extra under-pram storage to help lug shopping about. Other than that the Maclaren Quest is just about perfect. Even tiny son doesn't mind sitting in it.
Summary: Great pushchair!
