FRAGILE! Don't waste your time or money!

  • User Rating: Disappointing

  • Durability:
  • Ease of Use:

Pros:Folds up TINY, lightweight, folds easily

Cons:Uncomfortable for infants, impossible to push older kids, flimsy, fragile, bar eventually breaks with use.

The Bottom Line: It might be lightweight, but with regular use, this stroller WILL NOT last you too long. Also, not for infants or big kids.


We got this stroller as our lightweight "travel" stroller. We live in a cold climate and already had another stroller with bigger wheels that could push through snow. This MaClaren was meant to go in and out of the car, and along with us on trips. The fact that it doesn't come come with cup-holders and it has a small basket might be inconvenient, but that's probably why this no-frills stroller is so lightweight.
Why I like it:
1. This folds up REALLY TINY.
2. It will fit in almost any trunk, THROUGH MOST ANY DOORWAYS, and is lightweight.
3. Also, unlike the MaClaren Twin Traveller, the Rally Twin folds up and pushes easily too.
Why I don't like it:
1. It's not appropriate for newborns. It doesn't recline enough for them, and little babies (my son included) look so uncomfortable with one strap in their crotch and the shoulder straps rubbing against their neck & cheeks.
2. The stroller is way too flimsy to carry 2 children. I have a 4 year old (35 lbs) and a 2 year old (24lbs) and it it's become really difficult to push the two together.
3. What makes this stroller so lightweight also makes it super fragile. Going over curbs is a chore, and so eventually, all of that pushing on those handles bent and ultimately BROKE off one of the handle bars! (this all happened whilst on vacation. That was a hoot.) We replaced the frame with a brand new one (our repair shop was very helpful) and the same problem started happening one month later.
