The mythology of Vincent Van Gogh tends to emphasize the sadder aspects of his life, but the great painter’s sentimental side is often forgotten. A huge number of his works were portraits of or tributes to his family, including portraits of his mother, sister, father, and grandfather, and numerous paintings and drawings of the family vicarage, garden, and church.
His 1890 masterpiece Almond Blossoms was created to celebrate the birth of his beloved brother’s first child, who was named Vincent Willem. The almond branches were selected because, as one of the earliest flowers to blossom in spring in France, they’re a vital symbol of new life and new beginnings, making this piece of classic art the most extraordinary and perfect gift to welcome a new child.
Each stroller from Bugaboo is also a rolling masterpiece, providing the ultimate frame for your own little work of art as you travel across town. The Bugaboo Bee Complete Van Gogh Special Edition stroller combines these two triumphs of design into one, drawing ooohs and aaahs everywhere you go. The Van Gogh Bee features:
- An extendable sun canopy in the almond blossom print – it’s made to imitate the look and feel of silk, while retaining all of the technical qualities of Bugaboo canopy fabric, so it’s still water-repellant and machine-washable;
- A coated green chassis to compliment the blue fabric, with standard wheels;
- A matching faux leather handlebar;
- Petrol blue seat fabric; and a black under-seat basket.
The Bugaboo Bee 3 is Bugaboo’s lightest stroller model, designed for city and suburban sidewalks, small apartments, mass transit, and small car trunks. While the 22-pound Bee is petite compared to its sister strollers, it’s still loaded with all of the convenience and comfort features you expect from Bugaboo, including a reversible seat with three recline positions, a seat and harness that grow with your child, four-wheel independent suspension, and much more. The rounded, slender frame of the Bee also provides the perfect compliment for the delicate outlines of the Japanese-inspired Almond Blossoms pattern – this is a truly stunning and special limited edition stroller!
