“UNSTABLE DANGEROUS Maclaren Techno XLR ”

Written on: 29/09/2012

We bought Maclaren Techno XLR for our 1 year old son a month ago for his birthday from Mothercare Malta (where we reside), because I thought that Stokke was not so stable and comfortable for him anymore as opposed to famous wide fully reclined Techno XLR. We loved it, our boy was comfortable sleeping, sitting, playing....The only concern was that he stroller could have been put on the back wheels easily with a small pressure, otherwise everything seemed perfect, including the reviews.. We… Read Full Review

“Maclaren knows best!”

Written on: 25/08/2012 by Casski (1 review written)

When I had my daughters over a decade ago, I wasted so much money in pushchairs. Think I bought around 8 in a 3 year period. All of them were poorly built and bulky. So when I had my son last year, I knew to go with a maclareb as they've been around for Years! I got the full XLR package with car seat. And I have got to say I love the Thing! I didn't bother with the soft cot as, from my experience, I just have no use for Moses baskets etc. my son is now 10months and has plenty of room to grow… Read Full Review

“All you'll ever need from Birth”

Written on: 09/04/2012

Two years ago when expecting our first child and intent on buying a Mamas&Pappas Luna I used this site as a last minute guide on buggies, I found it had negative feedback therefore opted for the XLR. We wanted a reasonably priced buggy/car seat package that would be ideal from birth to 4 years (How do company's justify £1000 in a recession). The XLR and Recaro Isofix car seat Package seemed like the ideal choice at around £500.00 Two years on and its performed faultlessly. My wife doesn't… Read Full Review

“Plus Points: ”

Written on: 22/03/2011

Plus Points:
Very light and easy to manouvre
Easy to fold up
Looks good

Cons:
Sunshade is rubbish, constantly moves back up and as soon as you put anything in the pocket it just pulls it back
The viewing windows usually has the sun beating through.
Don't find the seat very supportive, my daughter is constantly slipping down, and the harness never seems to fit right...that might be me not Maclaren!
Plus it is rubbish off road i know that's not what it is designed for but even the slightest… Read Full Review

“We've bought our Maclaren Techno XLR since my daughter...”

Written on: 14/01/2011

We've bought our Maclaren Techno XLR since my daughter was born, Sept. 2009. It's not a great buggy for a newborn, but we didn't want to buy a second one and we ended up using it since. I think overall it is a nice buggy, easy to use in the public transport, etc. The main problem for me is the so-called sovereign lifetime warranty. Recently, I left our buggy near a heater radiator in a restaurant while we had lunch and when I returned the plastic piece that runs inside the hood was melted. As… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/02/2010

Buy this! I have a Quinny Buzz a Pliko M&Ps a Britax. This is the best by far! If your looking for a all round great buggy then BUY THIS ONE! Very easy to push, very comfy for child, easy to fold and open and looks great too. Of all my pushchairs this is the one that I wouldn't have a bad thing to say about. Great for walks and shops a little more than other strollers but really if you buy this at the start you'll save a fourtune. You get the footmuff and liner included so your all set to go… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/11/2009 by kayceemay (1 review written)

maclaren are normally fantastic and the old xlr without the the silver tip handles are fantastic but the newer supposidly improved version are far from improved yes they have made it easier to recline by adding the handle on the back of the seat like the mamas and papas but the biggest disapointment has got to be that they no longer have 2 slots which means the harness strap which goes inbetween the babys legs is to short for my 18 month olds son(who wears 12-18 months so is not even a large 18… Read Full Review

I agree, the 'crotch strap' is too short. My baby's thighs is always red after riing the buggy. I think thats why she always screams when we put her there.

Written on: 22/05/2009

We chose this Maclaren Techno XLR Stroller (with the car seat) as we wanted one that was light weight, compact when folded for storage/going in car boot, and would suit our son from birth onwards - and it fits the bill perfectly. It also had a good review from the Which guide which reassured us from a safety point of view… Read Full Review

“The Maclaren Techno XLR Stroller is a fab pushchair!...”

Written on: 09/04/2009 by Kaz2314 (1 review written)

The Maclaren Techno XLR Stroller is a fab pushchair! Lies virtually flat, roomy seat, my 10 mth old looks more comfy in this than any other pram I have had. I have spent a small fortune on prams and wish I had just purchased this one could have saved us a LOT of money. Fabrics are 1st class and seat liner is washable so very practical for food accidents! Lovely to push and get around shops. Lovely footmuff included and handy pocket on the back of the pushchair. My only gripe would be to have a… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/04/2009 by sneeple (1 review written)

Great buggy, have had it since my son was born in June 2007 and use it everyday. No problems so far - he's tall and still finds it a very comfy ride, plenty of room for him to lie down etc. Do shop around as you can find some bargains on the internet!

Can access the basket when the buggy is flat, from the front - I suspect it is a skill I have developed over the last almost 2 years ;)

Expecting baby no 2 in August and dreading having to get a double buggy after 2 years of ease with the Maclaren… Read Full Review

Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous, they've thought of everything. Great suspension, large basket, brilliant sun visor and extending hood, comfy seat, reversible seat cover, padded shoulder strap covers, head hugger for newborns, the list goes on...

This buggy is so beautiful, I have had six or 7 different pushchairs and my son is 9 months old and I think this is a keeper! It's lovely colours, posh suede fabrics, just yummy. Buy one!… Read Full Review
