I bought a Maclaren Quest stroller from a recent spree. It arrived within 3 days after I made the payment. So, we collected it last weekend. It comes with a free Maclaren Universal Organizer and a front bar. The organizer holds two cups and the front bar allows us to hang toys on the stroller.
I still love our first Combi stroller. It is so lightweight (only 4.5kg), very compact and folds-up easily. Wonderful for mall shopping and traveling. The only complaint that I have is the small storage basket and the lack of cup holder. As my 21-month old boy grows older, we realized that it is getting too small for him. Especially when he wants to nap, he has to squeeze like sardines as there is not much space for him to move around.
The Maclaren Quest stroller is durable enough to last through his toddler years. The frame of the stroller is made of sturdy and lightweight aluminium. Weighing only 6kg, it is a breeze to take it along while traveling. Both the front and rear wheels lock and unlock easily. It folds down compactly to the size of a regular folded umbrella stroller.
I love the seat. It is spacious and has an extendable leg rest. The seat padding is reinforced so that my little boy won’t sag down in it. Just like Combi stroller, its seat cover is removable and washable. The seat also has a four-position recline so he can sleep in it comfortably.
Another additional item in the stroller is the removable canopy that offers sun protection and has a UV protective window. The basket is large enough to hold a small diaper bag. Not forgetting the custom-fitted rain cover which goes from the canopy down to cover his feet during the rainy days.
All in all, Maclaren Quest’s features and ease of use make it well worth its price. I should have bought it sooner!
