The Maclaren Volo is the type of stroller that works well for practically all ages and all occasions. It’s great for babies ages six months and up, as well as their older siblings (up to 55 lbs.). It’s perfect for a quick walk to the park, a day in the city, or even to take on a long road trip.
Pros: at 8.8 lbs. the Volo is very lightweight – anyone can carry it. It folds quickly and easily and is very compact, yet also sturdy and stable. The ride is very smooth and requires very little pushing. Conveniently, the Volo has a nice-sized storage basket underneath and comfortable handles. It’s also very affordable.
Cons: Like a typical umbrella stroller, the seat does not recline (although I myself have never used the recline feature in strollers when my kids napped). I also thought that the included rain cover could have been a little better, the regular Maclaren Raincover may work much better.
Verdict: We say yes — the Volo is an affordable and useful investment for your family and can be used conveniently anytime, anyplace.
You can purchase the Volo for $130 on Amazon. It’s suitable for children 6 months and up.
I received a Volo stroller for review but was not paid to write this post. All opinions are my own.
