Plan to buy one Maclaren stroller. But the price really very expensive. Is the stroller very worth for money? I saw most stroller is without the front bar. Is the cranky and active baby can sit inside safely?

u can add on the front bar, as an additional accessory.

maclaren is good, coz it's light, durable and can be umbrella's folded, which makes it easier to fit into ur car boot and can be checked into flights as well. however, the absence of front barrier make it a concern for most parents. please bear in mind dat maclaren strollers come with 5 point locking harness so ur child can't climb out of the stroller at all time unless u do not buckle ur child up.

i myself is using combi urban walker. initially i wanted a maclaren, but somehow hubby prefer combi coz it looks more sturdy to him.

My hb oso just bought the MacLaren Techno XT. I feel it is sturdy, light weight and after folded it is easy to put into the car/storage.

I bought the Maclaren Vogue and it's good! Light enough for me to carry.

is this a newly launched model?

a/way, i hv the maclaren quest. personally, i feel that combi is more user friendly - it has this one button to close & open the stroller (esp when u hv a wailing kid in yr arms/car seat) compared to wat i have currently.

cheers.

My friend with a 2-year old boy complaining to me that combi doesn't last her long because the wheel couldn't take her boy's weight and they can't control the stroller well. She switched to Maclaren Quest and was very happy about it...

Maclaren Quest is only for baby 3 mths onwards right?

I'm still not even over my first trisemester but i've been researching on baby strollers already, lol. Definitely looking at the Maclaren stroller coz I really like the look of it. Esp the pink one if it's a girl! I came across someone's blog who mentioned that she bought her stroller for 20% off at www.mybbstore.com That's a pretty good savings already so maybe you girls could check that site out.

Not sure about other models, but I have been comparing the Peg Perego and Maclaren twin stroller. To me, the Maclaren seems a bit 'unsafe'. It has got hinges where fingers might got caught and resulting in injury. Perhaps this was why the some Maclaren strollers were recalled in UK few months ago. The Peg Perego's is safer where there is no hinges.
