Practicality incarnate. Are you going off on holiday and need a great value pushchair for your older toddler? This is it!
The Maclaren Volo is a great value pushchair. If you live in a big city and spend a lot of time getting off and on public transport you'll love it's lightweight design and easy fold. Mums in London rave about how easy it is getting on the tube with such a lightweight pushchair.
Lots of people also buy the Volo buggy as a second pushchair to take on holiday or store in the car. It folds up small and only weighs 5kgs, it also includes a handy strap which lets you carry it on your shoulder - a simple detail which actually makes a big difference.
This ease of carrying makes it a sensible choice for parents with slightly older toddlers who only need a stroller for an occasional rest after walking. You can also attach a buggy board to accommodate two children.
Not being able to recline the seat is a drawback if you have younger children. If thats the case I would suggest looking at the maclaren quest or maclaren triumph. These are similar, practical designs but include a reclining seat.
However, for toddlers who don't nap that often the Volo is ideal. The lack of recline and focus on the essentials cuts down on weight and gives a more responsive ride for mum and dad.
It doesn't come with a hood as standard but you buy an accessory pack which includes a hood, raincover and padded seat.
Incredibly light, easy to use, no frills and great value. The Volo makes a great second pushchair. If you need a cheap, strong pushchair for holiday this is just the ticket.
