Dear Maclaren Baby UK
YOU ARE AWESOME.
…ok, ok. I’d been harping on to D about a decent sized, not-gonna-break-my-back/bank stroller for quite some time. I’ve used a Pliko Pramette from Mamas & Papas and also the Quinny Buzz 4 for quite some time – both were killing me. They were heavy, cumbersome, bulky – just everything I didn’t want in a pushchair. My back and pelvis are still significantly weakened from both pregnancies, and hoiking around whopping great pushchairs was not helping at all.
In my search for a new one, I read loads of review and could find nothing I liked. Twitter gave me all number of mixed opinions and I felt close to tearing my hair out. And then Maclaren got in touch with me via twitter and STRONGLY suggested I try out the Triumph, which they sent to me for free, along with some brilliant “back to shape“exercises on their baby channel. We received the pushchair in “charcoal grey”, and as shown above, Isaac was very comfortable in it from the second I got it out the box. Actually, he just climbed in it himself and refused to get out.
Here’s part one of the vlog, telling you what we think…
And here’s part two -

Maclaren, I cannot thank you enough. It’s EXACTLY what I’ve needed, and wish I’d had one a long time ago. It gets used every single day and Isaac STILL complains when I have to take him out of it. We’re shopping for the footmuff for Isaac to see him through the winter (when the real test of time, weight and precision may come in to play – my joints suffer in cold weather), and are looking forward to travelling with it next year.
Thank, Maclaren Baby UK, you have been a LIFESAVER.
