New Maclaren Design: The Spitfire Ryder Stroller

In honor of the 70th Anniversary of the British Spitfire fighter aircraft, Maclaren has released a special Spitfire Ryder Stroller.

This stroller is part of Maclaren's Objects of Design Collection, which has featured strollers designed by Lulu Guiness, and Kate Spade.

I love that the design of the Spitfire Stroller is reminiscent of its namesake while remaining tasteful and modern at the same time. It comes in "Spitfire Green" and cream and there's even a bullseye on the hood just like the ones once seen on the side of these iconic aircrafts. The liner is reversible with one side a simple green and the other a playful camoflage. This stroller really looks unique and would definitely garner a lot of attention on the sidewalk.

Seeing as this is a Maclaren stroller, there are plenty of practical features as well. The Spitfire Ryder Stroller can be used from birth up to 55 lbs. It boasts a sturdy, aluminium frame, 5-point, adjustable safety harness, 4 reclining seat positions, front and rear suspension, a one-hand umbrella fold mechanism, and ergonomic handles. The seat is removable and washable, too. And the stroller comes with a rain cover, and coordinating head hugger and shoulder pads to keep baby snug.

This is such a cool, fun stroller--especially for boys, though how cute would a little girl be on the camo lining?--but like all good things, it must come to an end. Maclaren has only made a limited number of them, so don't wait to long before snatching one up for your little spitfire at!
