Maclaren Techno XLR
Advantages: loads of things... a very easy to use and lovely looking buggy
Disadvantages: poppers on footmuff broke :(
I bought my maclaren XLR in pink/brown when I decided that I needed a stroller for my 18month old daughter as I previously had a double and now my 3 year old was walking everywhere.
I knew that Maclaren is a very well known brand and that they have very good reviews so I started looking at them first. It wasent very long before I fell in love with the pink and chocolate XLR it looked amazing and there are many good things about it.
There are various postition from flat to upright for the main seat. It comes with a reversable liner and also a footmuff. The handles are adjustable. There are handy pockets on the back for storage of keys, purse, phone, I carry all sorts in mine sometimes I dont even need to take a bag! It comes with a head hugger too and harness supports but I didnt need that bit.
I bought mine seccond hand as at the time they were 279! eekkk.
The main seat is very wide I think this id good as my daughter is abit of a haulder and after her dummy,snuggles a teddy and juice cup she just about fits in too!
I like the fact that the hood has a waterproof fold down flap and also that the hood has an extra zip where it can extend bigger - handy to block the sun especially when they are having a nap and seat is reclined it still sheilds her from sun.
The raincover is very easy to pop on. Another thing I love is that it folds up so easy and there is catch that holds it together to stop it unfolding if you are carrying it etc. I also have a carry bag for mine. The fabric is very easy to wipe clean and the liner even goes in the washer!
I think the buggy is very well thought out, and the only down side is that my poppers on the footmuff broke very easily and it is hard to find a footmuff to buy seperatly.
Summary: a bit expensive but i think if you hunt around you can find a good price
