Phil and Teds Explorer buggy with doubles kit attached, in Apple
Phil and Teds will be releasing a new 3-wheeler buggy later this month, called the Explorer. With sporty looks, a flip-flop friendly pedal brake and air-filled tyres, it looks like it’ll be a hit with active families. The price tag will be around the £399.95 mark.
The Explorer will join the much-loved Sport, Dash, Vibe and Classic buggies in being able to convert from a single 3-wheeler into an inline tandem buggy, with the addition of the doubles kit, £69.95. It weighs 12kg, and can be used from birth to a whopping 6 years!
The Explorer buggy can be used as a travel system, too. It’s compatible with Phil and Teds bebe, Phil and Teds bebe HS and the Maxi-Cosi CabrioFix car seats. The required travel system adaptors will set you back £24.95.
So what else does the Phil and Teds Explorer offer? Firstly, it boasts a ‘one hand fast fold’. This sounds like a very handy feature – and one we’ll make sure our sister site, MadeForMums, tests out when putting the Explorer through its paces.
If you’re after a buggy with options, make sure you check out the Explorer. This buggy can be used in seven ways:
- For your newborn, in lie-flat mode with or without the additional Phil and Teds cocoon carrycot (£49.95)
- For your newborn, with the additional Phil and Teds peanut bassinet (£122.95)
- As a travel system, with one of the three compatible car seats
- As a standard single 3-wheeler for you toddler
- For your newborn and toddler, with the doubles kit on the front and your newborn in a lie-flat position
- For your newborn and toddler, with the doubles kit and car seat, so you toddler takes the lower inline seat and your newborn has a travel system
- For two toddlers, with the doubles kit attached
In terms of looks, you’ll be able to choose between Apple, All Apple, Navy and Black colourways. It can also be wiped clean, so mashed banana and squished raisins needn’t be a permanent feature!
Phil and Teds is proud of how much parent-feedback was involved in the development of its new Explorer buggy. Earlier this year, the company launched its ‘ideas hothouse’, an online place for parents to give feedback, vote on ideas and generally just chat. As Richard, from Phil and Teds, explained, “Our online consumer ‘ideas hothouse’ has provided a goldmine of ideas and substantiated others we’ve had. The goal was to listen, sure, but we’ve been so rapt with the ideas that we’ve worked overtime to incorporate them into the new product already in development.”
So mums and dads, if this buggy’s a winner, you should pat yourselves on the back, too!
