    What makes the Maclaren so good? The steelcraft and valco look similar?? Too many to choose

    I have no idea of the difference apart from name brand and price. Choice and Product Review are great sites that highlight the pros and cons of each stroller

    I love my Phil & Teds smart buggy, so much lighter then my old strider and it is so easy to move in, out and around places and it looks pretty cool too

    I've not tried either of those so they could be just as good (or better).
    Maybe go to a store, and try your baby in each one and steer with one hand. Much different steering with a weight in than empty I found.

    In my experience, the maclaren isn't better. Mum has a steelcraft stroller that I use regularly and I used a maclaren for a few days.
    The major differences I saw:
    -it was harder to access the basket in the maclaren, even with seat upright
    -the handle height is lower
    -harder to push and steer
    -when reclined, dd could still pull herself up, bringing the seat with her

    After using the maclaren, I walked away thinking that people are sold on the name alone, iykwim?

    Just picked up the steel craft holiday from big w today for $88!!! I think it's usually $150 ish? Will fit much better in my car, is light but feels sturdy and fully reclines
