Touring in our Maclaren Twin Triumph
Since having two children 19 months apart, selling our cars and moving to Manhattan, I’ve become quite the stroller connoisseur. I need something that can tote two children plus all of their accoutrement, is easy to push for long distances and compact and light enough to carry down the stairs of the subway while holding a child in the other arm (BONUS: If you look closely in my header photo, you can see that I am doing just that with the Maclaren Twin Triumph!)
So far, I’ve only found one stroller that can do all of these things.
The Maclaren Twin Triumph has quite literally saved the day countless times when I really thought I would have zero options for getting around town. Some days, it’s as crucial as hopping into a taxi to get to our pediatrician as fast as possible. We happen to live in a removed part of the city where often times I have to walk 3 or 4 blocks to simply be able to hail a taxi. We almost always need a stroller.
This means, I have to be able to fold the stroller with one hand and lift it into the trunk of a taxi in basically one foul swoop. The Maclaren Twin Triumph is simple enough to fold, lock and carry in one motion. I can honestly say that I don’t know what I’d do without it.
Handy features of the Maclaren Twin Triumph:
Both seats recline fully, and can hold children from birth.
Carrying weight capacity: 110 lbs (that means, my hefty 4 year old and nearly 3 year old are comfy as can be, and so am I)
Weight of stroller: 23lbs
5 point harness
Comes with weather cover
Waterproof, individual hoods
This is the stroller that we primarily use for our flights across country, when we need to get through security and to our gate as fast as possible. This stroller fits nicely onto the security belt and goes through the check like a regular bag. We then check the stroller at the gate and it’s there when we step off of the plane. Being that I generally travel solo with the kids, I absolutely need something that I can manage as easy as possible.
I have only great things to say about the Maclaren Twin Triumph. This particular stroller retails for roughly $240, and can be used for two children up to 4 or 5 years old, depending on the weight. Totally worth the extra cash for a stroller that will last from birth until the child is out of a stroller entirely!
