On the Dot

Dot compared to Navigator - front

I’ve been taking a hiatus from blogging for a bit this summer, enjoying time with my family and working on some other projects. But I am taking a hiatus from my hiatus to bring you my review of the newest stroller entry from phil&teds, the Dot Buggy. First, let me give you some background. We’ve been selling phil&teds at Magic ... Read More »

Day 10: phil&ted’s Nest

Everyone has their own sleep styles, patterns, and positions. In the US and Europe, we mostly sleep in elevated beds with blankets and pillows. In Japan, about half of the population sleeps in a Western-style bed, while the rest sleep on flat futons on the floor. Various hunter-gatherer societies sleep either on leaves, on thin mats, or on the bare ... Read More »

phil&teds recalls Sport V2 and Classic V1 buggies

This week, phil&teds announced a voluntary recall-to-repair of their Sport V2 and Classic V1 strollers. The hinges can pose an amputation and laceration hazard if fingertips are inserted while the stroller is folding or unfolding.

Six years ago, we were one of just a handful of retailers in the USA who carried the phil&teds stroller. Back then there was ... Read More »

Ready to Grow

Both my sister and my sister-in-law are pregnant and due in June. It’s the second baby for each of them, which means we’re talking about double strollers. A lot. In 2004, I was starting Magic Beans while finishing my second pregnancy. All the research I’d done about double strollers was doubly important – for me and for the stores. I ... Read More »

Mountain Buggy production moving to China

It’s hardly a surprise, but a big disappointment nonetheless. According to an article from a New Zealand media outlet, phil&teds has made the decision to move Mountain Buggy production from New Zealand to China. But I’ve never met a Chinese-made stroller that comes close to the solid, sturdy feel of the Mountain Buggy. When our friends from phil&teds visited a ... Read More »

Day 30 – phil&teds Dash Stroller

We’ve been selling phil&teds strollers since the very beginning in 2004. Back then, I ordered them directly from New Zealand (loved their accents), and hardly anyone had ever heard of them. We were one of just a handful of retailers in the United States. Now, of course, they’re all the rage, and I’m a proud mother hen. I used the ... Read More »
