When you find out your are pregnant you want the best for your baby. You ask friends and family what products are good. When I was pregnant with my son, I choose a travel combination stroller. My problem was that after my son got bigger it was too heavy. I discovered Maclaren through a friend who had used it for her son when he was a toddler. We had to make a run to the store and I borrowed her stroller. That's when I feel in love with this brand. It was so light. I didn't know a stroller could feel that light.

Maclaren Globetrotter Stroller features:
As you can see from the photo above, my daughter is strapped in and has the raincover on. I love it because it keeps her warm when its windy out and covers her all the way passed her feet. This is included when you purchase Maclaren strollers as other brands do not include it. Note that when you put bags on the handle bars the stroller will tip back without the child sitting in it as it is lightweight. The handle bars on this stroller are high as my husband is tall.
Things I didn't like
- Recline button on the back was extremely hard to loosen and didn't really go back enough or sit up too much.
- Straps after adjusting them to my daughter did not hold her in as she would take her arms out.
- Wheels are small and would get stuck on the sidewalk and intersections that were uneven and had potholes.
- Canopy not see through.
- Raincover did not cover the canopy completely.
Things I like
- Raincover included
- Easy to open and close
- One step braking system
- Stroller strap to carry
- Canopy is bigger and extends further
- Handles bars are high so I don't have to bend as I'm tall
Overall, I would use the Maclaren Globetrotter stroller again and again. The features on this stroller are not found with other brands. It is truly a lightweight stroller and the perfect handle height. The Globetroller stroller retails for $160.00 and comes in colors crown blue, festival fuchsia, scarlet, prince blue and black.
