» Listings for May 2010

  1. There seems to be a fair amount of new pushchairs coming on the market. Some sleeker designs, more compact, more lightweight. But are they becoming a little too futuristic?

Building on the success of the original Bugaboo Bee, the compact yet complete stroller known for its sleek design and smooth ride, Bugaboo is launching the new Bugaboo Bee with innovative upgrades and functionalities that continue to redefine how you Go. The new Bugaboo Bee has a new height-adjustable backrest and the sun canopy has been made smaller. It also has a new circular joint reverse system that creates an easy way to lift and turn the seat so the child can either face the parent or world.
     
    To be honest we think we prefer the look of the current model, however, we can't wait to test one out and in the next few months, we will be adding a few trials to our 'monthly' market list so watch this space!

    Also, just realeased is the new Silver Cross Surf. Silver Cross have been around for years and they do a wide range of pushchairs, but it seems they have hit the nail on the head and moved right up in the current market with what parents want from a pushchair with this one.
     
    The new Surf is a unique all-terrain reversible pram and pushchair combination. The lightweight magnesium alloy chassis is air sprung, giving maximim strength and minimum weight, whilst providing unrivalled comfort and manoeuvrability. Available to purchase online now.

    Remember, we are always changing our monthly rentals list with newer models and the old trusted favourites, but if you would like a quote on a model that isn't listed, please do let us know as we can then source and obtain a quote for you.

  3. Children love the sense of camping outdoors and having nature surrounding them. If you are thinking of going camping as a family then don’t be put off, read our top tips first!

     ?xml:namespace>

    1.)    Find a well located campsite. Camping is a great option for the family but really you only want to use it as a base as most of the time you will be exploring. The UK Campsite website (http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk) will show you a list of Campsites by entering either a Town, County or Name. It will also show the facilities available.

    2.)    Involve the Children. Children love to feel like they are helping and even helping putting up a tent, will not only learn them a new skill but they will love the fact they are helping. You can even go further and strip back to nature and build a bonfire and roast marshmallows!

    3.)    Pack Lightly. When camping you can easily get carried away with how much stuff to pack in the car. Most items have more than one utilisation. Nappy wipes, are not only great for wiping bums, but cleaning stains, used as toilet paper, cleaning sticky hands and wiping mucky faces. A great product to always pack is a little bottle of hand sanitizer. Great for on the go.

    4.)    Plan for UK Weather. We all know UK weather can change all the time, so plan for every element. Make sure you take your waterproofs and wellies too as some campsites can get very muddy in wet weather.

    5.)    Encourage new play. Yes, do take some toys but don’t overload your car with them. There are plenty of other games you can play with objects surrounding you. Take a teddy bear and plant him in the woods along with clues to help find him. See how many different objects they can find starting with a letter. Do take some small items, you can print off colouring sheets from the internet free and take a small bag of crayons too, which is great for the journey there!
