Baby Stroller and Pushchairs - Out and About


Having a family day out is not exactly stress free, but with some of the new Buggies on the market you can make it a more enjoyable experience for all involved. I am going to introduce you to three of the top buggies on the market at the moment. These are products from The Hauck group, Zapp and Maclaren, with these stylish pushchairs you will be venturing outside more and more.

As busy parents we are always looking forward to times out and about with the little ones. Those walks along in the park and along the coast or trips to the shopping mall. These can prove tricky tasks if you are commuting by car or bus also. You need an all-purpose sturdy pushchair that will endure all. A pushchair that is easy to maneuver around the shopping mall or glide over rough terrain when on those country strolls. Easy to fold, safe, long lasting and stylish, some of the best products on the market can do all of the above, still look stylish and come with matching accessories.

The Traxx range of pushchairs and matching accessories really help you to get around more. Traxx also supplies mini Traxx which is a fun range of Scooters and Trikes suitable for infants aged 18 months and up. A perfect outdoors range that complements the Traxx family. Traxx offers you the choice of 3 quality 4 wheeled pushchairs with matching accessories my favorite is the Jeep range.

The Jeep brand is ideal for country life or those weekend country strolls. With all the little added accessories you have all you need for an outing. The matching stylish baby purse comes with separate compartments for all the babies needs. Extra detachable pockets are added onto the pushchair for extra storage. The Jeep baby center plus comes with mosquito net that transfers into a playpen for older babies. And for those spring summer months the matching parasols are very cute.

Or why not take a leaf out of Sara Jessica Parkers book and go for the designer wheels. The Maclaren pushchair is the new must have accessory for celeb mums. Some of its well-known owners include SJP and the very posh Victoria Beckham. No self-respecting celebrity would leave home with out knowing there tot is comfortable ensconced in a Maclaren. Unlike the latest pair of stilettos the Maclaren Quest guarantees safety and comfort with out compromising on good looks. It is easily folded with one hand and is light enough to make carrying easy. Don't Fret! Maclaren is not beyond a meager budget with prices starting at around $50 for the ultra lightweight Maclaren Volo pushchair you too can afford designer style for your little star.

Small but beautifully formed, this is how you would describe the new Zapp pushchair by Quinny. Launched in February of this year this is the smallest pushchair in the world. The Zapp can be put up in 60 seconds and weighs just 14 pounds and measures less than 28 inches in length when folded. It retails at about $100 and can be converted into a travel system with the addition of the Maxi Cosi infant carrier. Strikingly stylish the Zapp is a real head turner and for its small size is incredibly maneuverable and robust enough for power walks in the park or some essential retail therapy sessions. This pushchair will fit into the foot well of a car and can even be carried on the back of a bike. Mothercare will be the first retailer to exclusively sell the Zapp pushchair.
