Ok, I have to confess that when we got to BabiesRUs, we were only looking to buy a very inexpensive umbrella stroller for our Disneyworld trip. My daughter was 3 at the time and nearing the end of the stroller stage. We had a large stroller but just wanted something small and lightweight to use at the parks. Well, our plan completely changed when we found the Maclaren Volo.

This stroller is awesome. At just over 8lbs, it is very lightweight. It even comes with a strap to carry it on your shoulder, which my husband has done on many occasions. Another big plus (especially for my husband) was that the handles were taller than other umbrella strollers. He didn't have to lean over to push her like he normally did with other umbrella strollers.

I have to say that the maneuverability of the Volo is great. This stroller turns on a dime. It was extremely easy to weave in and out of crowds while we toured the parks. Another plus is the mesh material. It is very easy to keep clean and it dries very quickly if we "accidentally" left it out in the rain.

While I normally wouldn't recommend spending this much money on an umbrella stroller, I have to say that we have definitely gotten our money's worth out of this stroller. This has become the only stroller that we use. It takes up little space and is easy to open and close. I saw lots of families fighting with the stroller when in was time to board a bus, but ours was quick and easy to fold.

The only real accessory that our stroller came with is a small bag underneath the stroller. It is not very big, but enough to carry small items. I am not positive but I think that this stroller can hold up to 50 lbs, so it is a stroller that can take you through several years.

I was hesitant to spend the money at first, but I love this stroller. I highly recommend this stroller.
