When baby #2 was on her way I decided that it was a good excuse to get another buggy. This time round I wanted something that was a little more special. Having pushed a buggy before I knew what I wanted in terms of functionality. It had to pop over kerbs easily, manoeuvre with one hand, be simple and quick to fold and be tough enough to handle a trip to the park but also suitable for a trip to the mall. Baby #1 (well not a baby anymore) was past the buggy stage so the ability to take more than one wasn't on the list. Although being able to attach a scooter for him to ride along when his legs got tired was.

I've been using the new urban jungle for a couple of weeks now and I love it!
My name is Krista and I am the mother to 18 month old Maverick. When pregnant, I researched a number of prams and what to get. There are LOTS out there in the market today, funky looking, colourful and the like, but what drew me back to Mountain Buggy was ‘why’ I needed a pram, ‘what’ I needed it for and ‘how practical’ it would be for me.
A few weeks ago we went on a short family holiday with our friends to Taupo, New Zealand. As you all know, when you travel with kids, you tend to take A LOT of stuff with you. It seems to be that the smaller the child is, the bigger their bag!
Arriving at the airport at 6:30 in the morning is tough... doing it with two kids in tow is madness! Boy, were we glad that we had a buggy to keep two year old Lexie in check!
Returning to Melbourne from New Zealand, it was back to having no family around and Mark often away for five days at a time for work. This meant essentially leaving Bruno and I to wing it solo. While gaining a huge appreciation for single parents out there, I also started to fully appreciate the freedom and ability to train that the terrain gave me. Cue: ultra-marathon no longer at the back of our minds but eyes now lingering over the entry button.
Our little mascot (Bruno) arrived by speed train late October 2013. Having been very lucky with a smooth and natural delivery, it was not long before I was out and about with him in my terrain .
For me, buying a buggy was like buying a car or a bike: I needed one that suited my needs of living an active outdoor-lifestyle. For example, if you're a keen skier you generally need a car that has 4WD; if you're a mountain biker you need a mountain bike vs. if you're a triathlete you generally need a time trial bike (okay, let's be honest, there's a few needs there that should be replaced with wants , but you get the idea).
