The Maclaren Volo is a basic, light four-wheeled stroller that has only one seat position. Our pushchair tests find out if it can do the job just as well as other strollers.

We're now using this for our second child and it is still in great condition despite clocking up the mileage. I find it really light and haven't had a problem with the straps either. It's easy to clean and my kids seem comfortable in it although they don't really doze when we're out and about so I haven't needed a recline option.
Very good value for money
Bought this to replace our dreadful Bugaboo Bee and I'm very pleased with it. It is very light, making it much easier to negotiate kerbs, steps and public transport, and folds quickly and easily and is simple to sling over one shoulder whilst I heft my one-year-old round on the other hip. Rain cover is simple to fit and takes up little extra space. It only has one seat position but my son rarely sleeps in the buggy now, and if properly tired will sleep in an upright seat anyway. Unlike another review the clip mechanism is good on ours, indeed nice to be able to release with just one click, and the straps are easy to unclip to fit a footmuff (much easier than the Bee). Also in comparison to my mum's buggy, same style but different brand, the Maclaren is streets ahead in terms of ease of pushing and balance. Wish I had bought one sooner.
Maclaren Volo review
Whilst the buggy is great in all respects it falls short on having the most awkward fastener ever! It takes forever to clip my little boy in and out of this stroller not to mention a near broken thumb each time I do it, for this reason I would say it's a definite "don't buy"!
