Sneak Peek at the Phil & Teds Dash

Today we had a visit from a couple of representatives from Regal-Lager, the US distributor of Phil & Teds, as well as the new US representative for Phil & Teds, who works directly for the New Zealand outfit. We were pleased as punch when they told us they were bringing us a Dash to play with. As it turns out, ... Read More »

Good Vibe?

I spent a few hours today at the Boston Baby Faire, and I finally had a chance to play with the Vibe and formulate a concrete opinion about it. Here are my thoughts. There is no such thing as a perfect stroller; this is a universal truth. Parents are always making choices and sacrificing certain features in favor of others ... Read More »

Phil & Teds Vibe arrives, but…

We received our first shipment of the Phil & Teds Vibe stroller. After being somewhat less than thrilled with the prototype we saw in Las Vegas, we ordered just a very small number to try. We do have floor models in all three stores, so if you’re curious about them, and you’re in the area, please come down and take ... Read More »

New York Magazine’s Stroller Testdrive

Check out this great article from New York Magazine. The author took nine of the newest and hottest strollers for a testdrive. Aside from the Fisher Price and the Perego Skate, we sell all the other strollers she tested, and I think she did a really good job of evaluating them. It’s a very even-handed and accurate assessment. Enjoy! Read More »

Newest dates for Phil & Teds strollers

According to an update I received this morning: The Classic buggy will be available 2/15/08. The Dash and the Vibe will be available 3/15/08. My local sales rep apparently had a preview of the strollers, but I haven’t had a chance to hear about it yet. Regal Lager and Phil & Teds are keeping things very hush-hush. I know a ... Read More »

Maclaren activates Lifetime Warranty today

Starting today, customers who purchase 2008 Maclaren strollers will be eligible to upgrade their basic warranty to a Sovereign Lifetime Warranty by simply registering their strollers online within 45 days of purchase. This is a “limited time” offer, but I don’t know exactly what that means. The Sovereign Lifetime Warranty will cover any manufacturer’s defect to the stroller for the ... Read More »

i’Coo Targo on YouTube

Check out this video demonstration of a new stroller from i’coo, the German company responsible for the i’coo Pico, which was a nice stroller but never really took off here in the USA. The new Targo looks a lot like several other hybrid style strollers on the market, but it has a couple of innovative features. I love the height ... Read More »

Phil & Teds new strollers delayed

I just heard that the release of the new lineup of Phil & Teds “in-line” strollers has been delayed. The latest word is that they are making some changes based on feedback from the ABC show and Cologne, and the buggies will now be available in mid- to late-January. I’m told the folks at Regal-Lager are “comfortable” with this new ... Read More »
