Maclaren has just released their latest marvel the Globetrotter and it is everything you could ever wish for in a stroller. To call it a simple umbrella stroller is selling the Globetrotter short, way short. The Globetrotter is lightweight but sturdy, folds easily and is unbelievably compact. The quality of this stroller is remarkable; the frame is solid, the fabric is strong and wipes clean easily, it dries quickly (as evidenced by the quick dry after a down pour mid walk) and the 5-point safety harness is Nascar worthy.

What I love most about our Maclaren Globetrotter is how easily it pops open and folds up when done. Living in a condo, space is a huge issue for us and has always been an issue when searching for a stroller. Until the Globetrotter we always felt the need to compromise either quality, functionality or storage but with the Globetrotter we get it all.

Some of my other favorite features of the Globetrotter are the under seat basket, the lockable swivel wheels, and the extra large sun canopy (especially here in sunny Hawaii). I also love how comfortable the Globetrotter is to actually push, the handles are at a perfect height so that I am able to push without hunching my shoulders and the grip is comfortable.

Perhaps the biggest winning point for the Maclaren Globetrotter is that my husband loves it! My hubby has something negative to say about every single baby product we own but when it comes to the Globetrotter all he could muster up was that the 5 point safety harness was a little overkill. Obviously he hasn’t pushed a toddler around much as I am so thankful for such a sturdy buckle!

Thank you Maclaren for building a stroller (or buggy as the Brit’s say) that does it all. We are so thrilled with our Globetrotter and use it every single day!
