PishPoshBaby Endorses Kate Middleton's Choice of Bugaboo as Royal Stroller Duchess of Cambridge opts for Dutch made A list pram Bugaboo for son.
JACKSON, N.J., May 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- It is quite common to see A listers sport Bugaboo strollers, but recently the Dutch mobility company received not only a great compliment, but quite possibly its largest unpaid endorsement ever.
Many expected the Duchess of Cambridge to go for a British brand like iCandy, but she instead went with a Cameleon in light blue which she mentioned with a group of Army wives at a recent drinks reception. Pishposhbaby.com COO Avi Levy however, says that this was not entirely surprising.
"The Cameleon is a very versatile and reliable all-terrain stroller which can easily be taken apart to fit the trunk of your car. It's one of our best-selling units, and the resale value is very high since everything from Bugaboo is top quality."
Used Bugaboo strollers can still be seen selling for several hundred on sites such as eBay, compared to competing brands which are often found at around a quarter of their original value. This can probably be attributed to the fact that Bugaboo products feature a durable aluminum chassis that rarely breaks down from use, reinforced joints, as well as a streamlined, easy-to-use design.
If there is one thing though, that outshines the quality of these strollers, it's probably their style. Bugaboo has been unabashedly stylish, working with prominent labels and designers such as Missoni, Marc Jacobs, Hello Kitty, and the Bas Kosters Studio.
As can be seen on an infographic posted on Pishposhbaby.com, nearly two decades of Bugaboo history saw colorful schemes and combos. Vivid colors of yellow, pink, and blue matched with whimsical prints lend perfectly well for babies or toddlers of trendsetting parents. This spring, Bugaboo delves into the realm of contemporary art as it pays tributes to one its visionaries – Andy Warhol. Featuring his works "Flowers" and "Cars" printed on the stroller's canopy – the designers of the Bugaboo stresses that the design "(C) elaborates the artist's love for children's inquisitive and creative minds and his ability to create timeless work that transcends any age or time period."
It is this penchant for aesthetic innovation and flair that gained the Bugaboo brand a following among celebrity "yummy mommies", but many suspect that the choice to go with Bugaboo was actually William's. Debbie Bird, editor of parenting advice website Babyworld says,
"Men tend to like the science and technology of prams, and they are looking for a pushchair that doesn't look too feminine, that they can adjust to their height, so they look smart walking down the street, too. The Bugaboo fits this category perfectly."
This may very well be true, with Prince William leaving his post in the Royal Air Force, reportedly to "take on the new challenges of fatherhood", it can be expected that he will be frequently spotted taking their new baby boy around in the new stroller.
