The British nanny is widely regarded as the epitome of practical, confident, no-nonsense babyminding. Accordingly, the British Maclaren stroller is widely regarded as the epitome of practical, sporty-looking, no-nonsense strollers, and the 2011 Maclaren Techno XT lives up to the image. Of course, strollers have a limited independent capacity for child care, but what metaphor is perfect?
The 2011 Techno XT, like its predecessors, is engineered to cram the most functionality into the lightest package possible. Weighing in at a mere 15.5 pounds (lighter than the Queen's corgis), it's fast and light and steers beautifully, with wheels that can lock or swivel depending on whether you're moving straight forward or trying to wriggle into tight spaces.
This flexibility extends to other stroller features: it has four recline positions, including a full recline, which, with the extendable leg rest, makes it quite suitable for a newborn. The handles are also adjustable, making the Maclaren Techno XT a great stroller for tall parents, or parents of very different heights (say, David and Victoria Beckham). It also can ferry your child around comfortably in all weather – the sun visor offers UV protection but includes a viewing window so you can keep an eye on your young charge, and a rain cover is included to keep passengers dry.
The 2011 Techno XT boasts a wonderfully simple foot-operated fold, which turns a full-sized stroller into a neat, flat package that you can carry with a convenient handle on the side of the frame while balancing a tot on your opposite hip.
Finally, the seat padding offers a happily synthesis of comfort, style, and practicality: you can choose comfort pads in a variety of nifty contrasting colors, and you can remove the seat liner to wash it. New for 2011: the frame is now the same color as the body of the stroller – your Black or Crown Blue stroller is now the same color from top to bottom.
In short: the 2011 Maclaren Techno XT is a supremely capable stroller and will serve your family well – whether you can afford a British nanny or not.
