Well where do I start with the Maclaren XLR, we have a disabled son and we looked at this as it has a larger seat unit and goes upto a nice 15kg, unfortunatly for us it just wasnt suitable for him but I will do a review on the short time I have spent with this puschair.
First Look -
To start with the pram looks lovely, it looks so comfortable for baby or toddler, it had a lovely padded reversible pram liner which is in two colours, black on one side and lime green on the other, also came with head hugger to support baby. The one thing I loved about the look of this pram was the fantastic sun visor and hood it unzips and comes very far down over baby!
I Would say the main pros of the pram is the ease to push, the wheels move so nice and smooth and they are rather chunky to make going over most terrain pretty easy! I have never had any problems with the wheels which with most buggys and the weight of my son I have done.
It is also perfect for tall people I Am 5ft 9 and I Can push with comfort as the handles do go into three different height positions, I also love the fact the seat is larger and more roomy for an older child.
Hmm now this is a hard one because to be honest there isnt much wrong with this pram I Would say the only thing I found was the handles can be uncomfortable to hold for long periods of time and its impossible to push one handed.
Overall I think this is a wonderful pushchair and perfect for anyone that walks a lot or for short journeys to its an umbrella fold and does fold up reasonably small for a car boot.
Its so easy to push and children do look comfortable and supported I would recommend this pram to anyone!
