A seated child who is not moving is not generating heat to keep themselves warm, the padded footmuff helps to protect a child's legs from the worst of the cold.
The Footmuff poppers securely to Major Elite frame so it won't slip off the seat.
An older child has longer feet as well as longer legs so if they already have the footplate in the lowest position then they may already have outgrown the Footmuff.
On really bitter days it can be beneficial to use a Rain Cover
or Storm Cover
to provide a 'protective bubble' from the cold weather...even if it isn't raining !
Maclaren have now discontinued their Soft Blue/Navy footmuff so Charcoal/Red is now the only colour available.
Machine Washable but do not Tumble Dry.
