The Maclaren Beatles Yellow Submarine Stroller – Review and Giveaway

I’m a mega-super mega fan of The Beatles, I grew up listening to their music… I grew up going to their concerts (well the remaining beatles that is…) there wasn’t anything in the baby market of strollers that really was cool for Dad until I saw this… When the Maclaren first released the Beatles Yellow Submarine stroller [Amazon] I was drooling… I had an older Maclaren, that I put it through hell – I mean this stroller was abused – we took it around to EVO Conference in Salt Lake, to Texas, to Florida, to over place we drove – its still around being no worst for the wear.  So when I got this stroller and said go test it… I was like a kid in the candy store – I beat on this stroller beyond the normal use… Its even become the stroller I’ve used this winter pushing in to snow banks, sheets of ice and its still awesome!

First the design is amazing! You can see this stroller from across the room, I get compliments on this stroller all the time – its that pretty.  Plus its SUPER Light weight. Running down the basics it has a five-point safety harness, lockable front swivel wheels and linked parking brakes. Its built on the Quest frame, features include the convenience of the one handed compact umbrella fold with carry strap (awesome for airplane trips) and a carry handle, a four-position recline, hand mesh shopping basket, height adjustable shoulder harness (so it can grow with your child). It comes with a specialty printed raincover and the hood is water resistant plus it comes with an great psychedelic-print seat liner thats reversible.  As an add on there is a foot muff [Amazon].  This stroller is a great option for babies three months (need that stable neck) to 55 lbs.

Another factor when buying a stroller beyond weight and function is going to be the warranty and all Maclaren Buggys are backed by their world-class engineering and the industry’s first Sovereign Lifetime Warranty. Which to date I haven’t had to use… really I’ve beat this stroller up… and its gone everywhere my child has in the last 3 months. One thing that I do want to bring up is that this stroller has the redesigned hinge which is now rounded so you dont have to worry about that recall or about hinge covers.

So while this looks like it’ll be daddy’s stroller one of the best parts is how light weight it is coming in at just 12 lbs my wife is usually carrying it up and down subways steps with no trouble at all.

  16. I think this stroller is cool because it has a hot design. I mean who doesn’t like the Beatles and the yellow submarine design is versatile for both boys & girls.

  25. Wow that stroller is really awesome. I never had a good lightweight stroller for my daughter, we tried so many. I read that you could even stroll this in the snow in the city! This would be perfect to take my new little guy around in on shorter trips as soon as he can hold his head up!

  51. Well i’m too young for the Beatles but I do know I love maclaren strollers. They fold small, last forever and are lightweight enough to carry on and off NYC subways. The carry strap is really handy, it comes standard with a raincover, it’s comfortable both for a baby and my 3 year olds, the stroller liner makes cleanup a breeze… whats not to like about it? Oh and I love denim so the hood is extra cool, especially the way it stands out agains the yellow.

  59. I can remember as a kid being placed in front of the TV to watch Yellow Submarine….what a great movie and cartoon. As long as you avoid the Blue Meanies, this is a great stroller to safely transport the little ones through Pepperland! I like the style and safety features. Truly a stroller that a Dad can proudly push. Now if they’d only make the mini-van cool, too. Honda presents The Beatles “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Van, ” anyone? I know I’d line up for that!

  103. I need this not only because our stroller is ugly and has a bad wheel so it makes weird noises on the sidewalk, but because we’re teaching our daughter to appreceiate good music, starting with the Beatles. Her father in law passed a couple months before she was born and was a HUGE Beatles fan, so we feel it’s our duty to make her a fan as well!
