Although it might not seem like it at the time, there is one very big advantage to being pregnant for 40 weeks - there is plenty of time to shop for all those baby essentials. One thing that you're sure to need is a buggy but if you haven't already got savings in place for this purchase, it can be difficult to see how you will be able to afford your dream buggy - featuring everything you need to live life without limit.
Many mothers say that once they have children, they no longer have time to go to the gym or do any formal exercise. Unfortunately just running around after your toddler might make you feel physically exhausted but doesn't really compensate for the physical exercise regime you may have lost. In reality it is possible to follow a fitness regime with a toddler in tow. Determined to help you enjoy a life without limit, we've put together some handy tips for burning those calories and toning those muscles with your little one around.
A few months back our "Buggies for Good" programme sent an urban jungle buggy to Thailand with an amazing man called Graeme. Graeme had met a young disabled boy whilst he was volunteering there and was so touched by his grandmothers love and devotion that he decided to help her out. You can read the full story here .
Graeme is a volunteer with Creating Balance Foundation of Thailand - a program designed to create hope for families living in some of the worst conditions in the hill tribes of Northern Thailand. He emailed us the other day to tell us how he was getting on and let us know how the urban jungle was holding up to the rigours of rural Thailand. This is what he had to say:
A few weeks back we came across a very special lady called Dee. We met Dee and her two twin boys at the 'Wellington Buggy Walk'. This year we showed our support for the 'Buggy Walk' by donating a prize or voucher for one lucky family to win.
Mounting Buggy began over 20 years ago when a new father decided he wanted a buggy with all terrain agility. He needed a buggy that would enable him to take his baby on mountain trails, and so with some kiwi ingenuity and precision engineering he crafted the foundations of Mountain Buggy’s legendary platform. Today our engineers work off that very same platform.
Mountain buggies our built to last but like any piece of equipment with moving parts they need some love and care. To ensure your buggy lives a long and happy life check out our maintenance tips below.
Our 'chief cook & bottle washer' came up with the idea for 'Buggies for good' when asked to donate to 'change for good' on an Air NZ flight. He thought that maybe owners of pre-loved phil&teds or Mountain Buggy products might want to play their part and donate back to us... So, in 2009 'Buggies for Good' was born! We collect pre-loved buggies from generous gems - around the world - then our clever little engineers and service fellas give ‘em the once over, make sure they’re in good working order so we can then donate the jazzed-up-beauties to a deserving cause or charity within the community.
It's celebration time! We hope you'll share in our excitement as we give you a sneak preview of our JPMA Award winning stroller launching next year - Mountain Buggy nano!
