Our first pushchair review here at LEMON HQ on the MACLAREN QUEST ARC (RRP £293)
WHAT WE LOVE THE MOST:
MANEUVERABILITY– a super light push weight, responsiveness and all-wheel suspension coupled with the ability to quickly open, close and carry with one hand makes outings a breeze. The handlebar is so to use especially if you’ve only got one hand spare!
COMFORT– the fully reclining 4-position padded seat with memory foam footrest can transform into a cocoon environment for newborns and be removed and machine washed. Plus, there’s plenty of coverage to protect from the elements and storage to hold baby essentials. There’s a great pocket at the back where you can hide your wallet and keys.

OTHER DETAILS WE LOVED:
PEEP VIEW. As any parent will tell you, never ever let yourself be seen by a child who is about to fall asleep otherwise the spell will be completely cursed. Every pushchair needs a peep view!
EXTENDABLE HOOD. Fantastic whether you’re in a hot climate and you need to protect your child from the shade or if you’re in a cold climate and need to protect from the freezing cold wind.
ONE PIECE HANDLEBAR. So much easier to manoeuvre especially when you’ve got another kid to hold or chase after.
ADJUSTABLE HANDLEBAR. Essential but not always the case if both parents (most often than not) of different heights want to push the stroller!
WHAT WE DIDN’T LIKE:
After a lot of scrutiny and debate, the only thing that we found tricky and fiddly to do was to adjust the seatbelt straps. Again not a huge deal but having two kids, sharing the same pushchair, means fiddling with the straps quite often and there was no clever mechanism for speeding up the process.
