I love anything monochrome and stripes so the Maclaren Quest Railroad Stripe well & truly caught my eye.

The Maclaren Quest is a well loved buggy with lots of fab reviews but the previous colours just didn’t do it for me. They looked pretty plain compared to buggies like the Cosatto Supa, but the Railroad Stripe is really stylish.

It’s suitable from birth with a near lie-flat position, but great for toddlers who like to be nosy when out and about, although with the recline they can quite easily have a nap too.

The bonus for me is how lightweight and compact it is, plus the carry strap makes it perfect for travelling on public transport or going on holiday.

Have you ever had a Maclaren? What did you think, are they worth the price tag of £195 for a stroller?

    I have a Maclaren stroller & love it! I bought it for my first born when he was 6 months old & it’s still going strong 8 years & 3 kids later. Mine didn’t have that high of a price tag, though. I love the look of this black & white one!

      Wow, Becky 8 years? They’re obviously well made. I love buggies but even though Archie’s going to be in one for a while longer than usual I don’t think I’ll stretch to this price tag. It would be well worth it though if he was younger xx

    I went for a bargain sale silver cross which was a welcome relief from the travel system days. It’s lasted pretty well, but my in laws have a maclaren and I can really tell the difference in quality. maybe next time…oh wait, there won’t be a next time 😉 x MMT #maternitymondays

    I always hear brilliant things about the Maclaren buggies. We’ve never had one but my friend does and she absolutely loves hers. Always calls it “very sturdy” 🙂

    Looks and sounds like a really great stroller but I have to say I couldn’t justify spending that much on one I don’t think! May just be because I am tight though lol! Thanks for linking with #MaternityMondays

    Fab pushchair, I love how stylish the black and white makes this. I certainly would have chosen it, if I’d have been in the market for one.

    Great review!
