What sets Bugaboo apart from other baby strollers companies on the market?
Designed for everyday use, Bugaboo strollers are built to last for a newborn through toddler years and can be customized to suit your needs, style or journey allowing baby to face the world or their parents. Bugaboo turns burdens into blessings through unexpected, yet useful features found in all of their strollers.
We also enjoy hearing our consumers’ stories as we most recently launched a year-long initiative called The One to celebrate the Bugaboo Cameleon³ – the most versatile stroller that is loved by parents around the globe and that defined the premium stroller category. The brand will look back at Bugaboo’s rich design heritage, and honor the Bugaboo Cameleon owners of the past and present. Since its release, over one million children worldwide have enjoyed their journey in a Bugaboo Cameleon. To support this initiative, Bugaboo will share milestone brand stories, exclusive content on the brand’s online lifestyle magazine, The Journal, and feature families, friends and fans who have all loved the Bugaboo Cameleon.
What’s the background of the company? When did it start? How has it evolved over time?
Bugaboo was founded by designer Max Barenbrug and physician Eduard Zanen in 1999. With a mission to bring freedom of movement to today’s parents, Bugaboo revolutionized the stroller industry through its distinctive design of the world’s first modular stroller.
As a result, the Bugaboo Frog was created and introduced to the world in 2001. The Bugaboo Frog was the first stroller to feature a parking brake on the handlebar, swivel wheels for easy 360o rotation, and an enhanced suspension system. In 2005, the brand launched its iconic product – the Bugaboo Cameleon – which was designed as the all-in-one stroller providing parents with a new effortless way to explore the world with their family.
Today, we offer a range of strollers to meet every lifestyle from city to all-terrain. We also listen to our consumers and answer the evolving needs of modern parents.
