Advantages: easy to push and to get up curbs
Disadvantages: quite wide and didnt fi through door
The Maclaren Twin Techno is yet another buggy that I have owned over the last few years. This could is the best quality of the doubles I have owned.
I had a black buggy on a black frame, it was very stylish and easy to use. It is very quick and easy to set up.
The 2 seats recline independantly so you can have one child sat up and one laying down with no problems.
The baskets underneath are not the largest but no double buggy will ever have a huge basket.
It is very easy to push around and even passed the curb test for me - The curb test is something all double buggys need to pass in my opinion. The curb test is basically - can you get the buggy off the road and up a curb with ease and quickly - so many double buggys have failed this more me (including the cosatto duet lite and the icandy pear)
When you live in a little town where the part of the road that is supposedly the low part that you are supposed to cross at then this is important.
My only fault for this buggy is that when we moved house the house we moved to had a narrow door and we could no longer fit it through the door so I had to set it up out side the door and take it back down before we went back in the house - very annoying and the reason why I moved on to another buggy
One other thing i liked about the buggy is that you can buy comfort packs in a large variety of colours and styles. The comfort packs contain the shoulder strap coverers that prevent the straps from digging in and a padded comfort piece for behind baby/ toddlers head!
All in all a great buggy but it might be an idea to measure your front door to see if it will fit through - it was even a tight squeeze at our old house
Summary: lovely buggy wish our door was bigger so I could have kept it longer
