Review the Maclaren Major Elite

Maclaren Major Elite

The Maclaren Major Elite is designed for older/larger children who are not able to walk, can walk either for short distances only or who tend not to go in the direction wanted. The Major Elite covers an age range from 2 years to 8 years, although suitability is more about size rather than age. This larger model is based on the standard Maclaren ‘umbrella style’ folding strollers, the Major Elite is essentially a larger version. It has an adjustable footplate which can be positioned at three levels to suit the child’s leg length so the pushchair can grow with the child.

We used this when our son was much younger and we didn’t have an accessible vehicle to transfer a larger wheelchair.  It was okay but didn’t offer a lot of good support for a child that needed a lot of positional support.  It got us by in a pinch but would be better suited for a child that didn’t need aggressive supports

We love our daughter’s Maclaren major as an alternative to her heavier wheelchair! It’s great as a umbrella stroller for bigger kids - very easy to fold up, lightweight and takes up minimal space in the car. If you live in the UK, your OT may be able to source one for your child from wheelchair services for free! I did buy additional accessories- the under basket (essential!), footcosy for winter weather and a plush sheepskin liner. Only giving 4 stars for the following reasons: the rainhood is flimsy and ours has snapped, and is awkward to get on and off. Also wheels could swivel/move easier.
