Good morning, faithful readers. I've got something to brighten your morning: my coworkers just returned from the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas and they've been kind enough to share some stroller gossip with me, which I in turn am going to share with you!
Let's kick things off with some seriously juicy gossip. Back in August I told you about Peg Perego's awesome new Skate Stroller. Well, rumor has it that Peg Perego is designing a new version of the Skate that would be more light weight. This is one of my favorite new strollers, so I'll definitely keep you informed if I hear anything else about the forthcoming light weight Skate!
In other Peg Perego news, they're coming out with a new stroller called the Pliko Switch Completo. It has all the features of their popular Pliko P3 Stroller plus a new, comfortable seat; extra large, adjustable hood; rain canopy and footmuff. And that's not even the half of it. Learn more about the Pliko Switch Completo and get a good look at it on Peg Perego's Web site. This stroller will be rolling into the States in 2009. Be sure to check back here for updates on when it'll be available on Strollers.com!
For all you Bugaboo fans, there's some very cool style headed your way. Bugaboo has teamed up with Paul Frank for two very fun and modern collections designed for the Cameleon Stroller. This news is so new you can't even find it on Bugaboo's Web site yet! One collection features a color block pattern complete with Paul Frank characters while the other comes in army green and features Paul Frank's Skurvy pattern. I wish I could show you images, but for now my descriptions will have to suffice. I'll post more information as soon as I get it.
I'm also excited to let you know that Bumbleride might be working on their own umbrella stroller. I've always loved Bumbleride's cute patterns and unique color combinations, so I hope this rumor is true. I'm sure they'd design an umbrella stroller that's stylish and affordable but we'll just have to wait and see.
And my last tidbit of gossip is that BabyPlanet may expand their Endangered Species Collection to include a double stroller and bassinet. BabyPlanet partnered with the Wildlife Conservation Society for the Endangered Species Collection and I'm really excited to hear that it might be expanding soon. BabyPlanet makes a yearly cash contribution to the Wildlife Conservation Society and donates $5 from each Endangered Species Stroller they sell! And you don't even have to sacrifice style for this great cause. Each stroller has a sleek, sporty look and features accents from an endangered species such as Snow Leopard and Lemur. Again, I'll post images and more information as soon as it comes my way.
So that's the very latest, and you heard it here first from your dedicated stroller patroller, Mother Goose! Check back soon for more stroller news, gossip, and of course, deals!
