Maclaren Twin Techno Stroller Review
Buckle your little ones in for a fun day with the best double stroller for Disney, the Maclaren Twin Techno stroller. This side-by-side umbrella style stroller gives little riders the opportunity to take in the view from the comfort of their own seats.
Whether you have a set of young twins or two separately aged children who still need a lift during family outings, the Twin Techno has got you covered. This stroller easily accommodates a variety of rider ages and sizes to help you get the most out of it.
From Birth and Beyond
One of the best features of the Twin Techno is that it can be used for newborns up to children who weigh 110-pounds. That’s a lot of leeway when it comes to passenger sizes and makes it easy for you to transition from child to child without worrying about whether someone will be too big or small for the seats.
Newborns do require a head hugger attachment to ride tandem or alongside an older sibling however, when compared with the headache and expense of purchasing a second stroller to handle that oh-so-short newborn period it’s definitely not a deal breaker. That being said, the Twin Techno does not accommodate infant car seats, so plan accordingly.
Comfort for Two
Both children can ride along in comfort and style in the sleek black on black Twin Techno. Seats recline independently to 172-degrees with five recline angles, providing an almost flat surface for sleepy travelers. The recline options are also great for smaller babies who can’t sit as long as older children.
The seats are situated side-by-side to provide “equal” viewing for passengers and also give babies the comfort of riding directly next to one another. Separate sunshades and harnesses provide protection and safety for each child individually.
Easy to Maneuver
The Twin Techno boasts a narrow design and lightweight frame to make it easy for parents to steer through buildings or crowded city streets. The stroller’s width measures in at 29-inches to make getting through standard doorways a breeze.
The Techno compensates for its narrowness with increased depth, and manages to leave a considerably small footprint for its class. This is particularly useful for city dwellers who need the option to bring the stroller into crowded places like restaurants and public transportation, where every inch matters.
Comfort for All
Parents and children can enjoy all day comfort while using the Twin Techno. Tall ergonomic handles with comfortable grips keep parents going strong at the helm. And adjustable seats grow with your riders to provide even taller children with a customized comfortable ride.
Stow and Go
The Twin Techno features spacious underseat baskets that store your diaper bag and other essentials for a day on the go. Baskets fit compactly underneath the seats and are divided to help keep items separated, if necessary.
Optional add-ons can be purchased separately to increase the flexibility of your stroller. Items like a cup holder and organizer can give Mom and Dad even freer hands for stroller steering.
Fold and Store
Due to its umbrella stroller design, the Twin Techno folds compactly for storage between uses. It stores easily in closets or the back of an SUV or minivan, ready to be pulled out for the next adventure.
The Twin Techno is lightweight, relatively speaking. As a twin umbrella stroller, it’s certainly heavier than single strollers – even those of the non-umbrella variety. It weighs in around 26-pounds without any accessories attached. With the baskets and sunshades added, the Techno is pushing 30-pounds.

If you spend a lot of time in the city or traveling in otherwise well-designed areas (think airports and shopping malls), the Maclaren Twin Techno may be just the answer you’re looking for for toting two little ones alone. This stroller accommodates similarly sized twins or differently sized siblings for the ultimate in flexibility.
It’s well-designed to keep you flying through doorways and other crowded areas without so much as a bump or an awkward “excuse me”. Additionally, Maclaren strollers are known for quality, so purchasing the Twin Techno is definitely an investment that will last for probably longer than your kids will require stroller transport.
This twin umbrella option is ideal for families of multiples who need an easy travel option that stores compactly when not in use. It’s got all of the right parts to make travel with little ones easier than you could’ve imagined.
