  • Taking a Ride on the Silver Bullet

    Mar 13, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lightweight, comfortable, durable ride
    Cons: "Breezy", no snack tray, no cup holders, unusually tough on the in-laws

    Summary: Cadillacs Beware! of the Maclaren Volo Silver: There comes a time in every parents life when their Cadillac travel system desperately needs to be traded for a sportier, easier to manage vehicle. Though massive stroller systems serve rightful ... read more

  • When it's good, it's very, very good... when it's bad, it's awful

    Jul 11, 2010 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Tall handles Very lightweight Easy to fold Turns on a dime
    Cons: No recline Squeaky wheels Hood keeps popping off

    Summary: We chose this stroller for our toddler and generally feel it was worth it. It is very lightweight and turns on a dime, so one person can easily open a door and steer it through with one hand. The handles are nice and tall for those of us over 5'6" or ... read more

  • The almost perfect stroller!

    Nov 1, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: lightweight, durable, steers easy, folds easy, great basket underneath, canopy,
    Cons: no cup holder, no snack tray

    Summary: I hate umbrella strollers and I thought the Volo was a glorified umbrella stroller...I was wrong!  I had been faithfully committed to my Graco Metrolite (in the "french bear" pattern) since my son was born and that stroller was followed by the Graco ... read more

  • Great stroller, a lifesaver!

    Aug 22, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Ultralight, easy to use, convenient, excellent safety features
    Cons: Hood gets dirty when folded, no sunshade, limited storage, lousy customer service

    Summary: My baby is taller and weighs more than a normal 6-month old and moving her in her carseat in a snap-and-go carrier was getting harder as she got older. The Maclaren Volo is a lifesaver (not to mention my back and arms!). It's lightweight, even easy to ... read more

  • I absolutely LOVE this stroller! Easy to use!

    Jun 10, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great steering, lightweight, portable, folds-up compactly, great color!
    Cons: Harness can be hard to open, somewhat pricey.

    Summary: I have never ever considered spending a lot of money on a stroller but I have to say, the Maclaren Volo was worth EVERY single penny we spent on it. I started researching strollers after we decided that the Graco that came with our car seat was just ... read more

  • An Awesome Umbrella Stroller

    Apr 29, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Durable, lightweight, one hand collapse, nice added features
    Cons: When folded, wheels can rub up against hood and cause dirt marks

    Summary: For years, I put off buying an umbrella stroller thinking that I didn’t need one and, besides, I loved my full sized stroller. However, when planning a vacation, we realized that we would need something smaller and more lightweight. I tried out at ... read more

  • In My Weaker Moments, I Like to Pretend I'm Angelina Jolie

    Apr 5, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Incredibly lightweight, one hand fold, aluminum construction
    Cons: Stiff buckles, small wheel base

    Summary: I'm a new mother who lives in an "urban-suburban" suburb of Chicago. So how could I not register for a Maclaren stroller? I suppose it was because I knew my family was giving us the ... read more

  • Glad I bought this as my first umbrella stroller

    Mar 28, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Small, lightweight, affordable.
    Cons: Too big for average 6month old baby, hood gets dingy

    Summary: Guilty of stroller envy As a new mom, I eyed all the different strollers that were out in the market, and I had mad stroller envy when I would see anyone walking by with a Maclaren. I have a small car (see my other review on the ... read more

  • Wish I had Purchased this Gem Sooner!

    Feb 27, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Compact without compromising handling and safety. Simple 1 handed collapse. Light weight and stylish.
    Cons: Should have purchased it sooner.

    Summary: This is one of THE best purchases I have made for my daughter. Being an urban mom, I shuddered at the thought of purchasing a mini-van and adapted my turbo new beetle to being a "mommy mobile". The only problem was that the very cool full size ... read more

  • Chloe's New Ride

    Feb 16, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Lightweight; Super easy to fold and unfold ,Maclaren quality, five point harness
    Cons: no cup holder, does not recline

    Summary: As I wrestled the "plaid monster" out of the trunk at the mall while rain soaked my entire backside, I thought, this is ridiculous that a stroller commended for its ease of use was giving me such a struggle; and in the rain, no less. I was trying to ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: lightweight, attractive, easy to use
    Cons: basket

    Summary: I got this stroller for my son when he was 8 months old. It has been over a year and I still use it and it is in excellent shape. I researched strollers before I purchased this stroller and only really read positive things about it. It is very light, ... read more

  • Good stroller for everyday back and forth. Not meant for long walks.

    Dec 23, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Small, lightweight, durable
    Cons: Does not recline, can be uncomfortable if child sits in it for an extended period.

    Summary: I purchased this stroller as a secondary stroller and wound up using it as my primary stroller. My intention was to use this stroller on a trip I wanted take. I thought that an umbrella stroller would be easier to transport than my daughter's larger ... read more

  • For parents on-the-go!

    Oct 11, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Opens/closed with two clicks of a foot and wrist.
    Cons: Small storage basket, can't wipe off dirt.

    Summary: I bought this stroller a year ago and I love it. I feel like a SuperMom with it--I can steer it with one hand, toddler in tow, walking the dog with the other hand and talking on the phone. (I know, don't try this at home). The problems are that the ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: lightweight, great for travel, fun colors, rides well, nice upgrades
    Cons: a little expensive for what it is, a splurge

    Summary: I purchased the Volo (in orange) as a lightweight stroller for travel. My son was 4 1/2 when we purchased it. Our regular stroller was a Peg Perego Pliko and I was looking for something a little easier to travel with now that my son was older. I ... read more

  • This stroller is a godsend for those with tall kids

    Feb 2, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: sturdy, holds up to 55, ergo, rides smoothly
    Cons: doesn't fold easily & heavy to carry long distances.

    Summary: We have gone through three strollers as our son grew like a weed and we travel alot. They either fell apart or our son outgrew rather quickly. When we were in Boston looking for work in 2006, we thought the Combi City savy could take the abuse. After ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lightweight, compact, very manueverable, high quality, breathable
    Cons: No parent storage on handles, no toy bar

    Summary: I actually have the color "Carbon Mark" Volo, but this color is the closest to mine. Only difference is that the seatback of mine is a charcoal print instead of red. Canopy and undercarriage are identical. What I love: Mesh back and seat - ... read more

  • Taking walks is a breeze with the Volo

    Jan 24, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to push and operate, comfortable, well-located handles, breathable mesh seat, nice basket
    Cons: Harness does not work well for a 6-9 month old, front wheel locking mechanism

    Summary: We have had a mostly great experience with our new 2005 Maclaren Volo (in silver, with sunshade and basket). We had previously had a small Combi stroller given to us by friends, but always had to bend over when we pushed our daughter in it. We were ... read more

    Pros: great for fat and tall babies, superlight, tall parent must have
    Cons: small storage area, no window in the sunshade

    Summary: My 1 year old daughter was 32lbs and 33" tall. We had definately outgrown her Graco travel system stroller and I was looking for an umbrella stroller that could handle our robust baby, plus I wanted something lighter. Another huge factor was I am 5'7" ... read more

    Pros: Quality tires, Lightweight (8lbs), 5 point harness, extra long handles
    Cons: Terrible buckle, no sun shade, no fabric on seat, no basket, difficult to fold, etc.

    Summary: We received this as a gift but would never have bought it on our own. Here's a list of the pros & cons with this stroller that I have noticed running it around the house & trying to put my baby in it. Pros: Quality small tires Lightweight (only ... read more

    Pros: light, easy to push, great turning radius
    Cons: expensive

    Summary: Id suffered through over a year of our horrible Evenflo stroller. The design was so poor that there was very little I liked about it, even though it was used every few weeks at most. Determined to find something better, I quickly came across ... read more
