Why aren't Maclaren strollers in stock + other suggestions on umbrella-style buggies that don't fold umbrella-style

Libby • 18 Feb 2023


I've had a look around online for new Maclaren strollers but can't see to find them stocked anywhere - do you have any insight as to why this might be? Also, following my last question, if you have any recommendations for strollers that have seats like umbrella strollers (my toddler's favourite pram) but aren't actually umbrella fold, I'd love to hear them. Especially those with large spacious seats.

Thank you

Hey, Libby,

I don't exactly know why the Maclaren strollers are not in stock many parts. I did not hear about a recall, so I am guessing they are preparing something new, new design launch or something made better, while they are not anymore producing the older design. This is just a guess, though. I personally would still look for older stocks or check pre-owned Maclaren strollers.

Apart from that, I will suggest checking if you cannot get your hands on a TFK Dot 2 which is one handy little buggy, and also will suggest the Quinny Zapp Xpress - it may be you won't find them around crazy much, but it's worth a try. Apart from that, the Silver Cross Pop 2 is a spacious buggy, however it does fold line an umbrella stroller unfortunately. And I will also mention the Inglesina Zippy Light and the Peg-Pérego Booklet as interesting options.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
