The perfect pairing - phil&teds sport buggy
There are some things in life that are just better together, like wine and cheese, sun and sand, walking and talking. So when you find that perfect pairing, it just works, no questions asked and no going back.
Living next to one of New Zealand’s most beautiful beaches and outdoor landscapes, my days consist of morning walks, midday beach visits and long leisurely evening strolls. So when the time came to add a baby (then another) to my great outdoors lifestyle, I was aware that these new bundles of joy could potentially halt the daily outdoor experiences I was not ready to let go of.
With this in mind I needed a pram that would pair perfectly with my passion for the outdoors and could grow with my family. After a lot of research I decided on the phil&teds sport buggy, thus creating the perfect baby & buggy pairing!
Like most mums of young children, my days are all about nurturing healthy, happy kids and looking after myself so that I can do this well. Here’s where the phil&teds sport buggy comes in, giving me the freedom to do what I love and give the kids a taste of the great outdoors from the day they are born with the newborn ready seat.
My typical parenting day in the mount goes something like this:
Alarm goes off at precisely 7am - who am I kidding, the kids are going to be my alarm for at least the next 10 years. I slide out of bed feeling refreshed and rested (I wish) and ready for another day. A peep outside reveals another stunning day in paradise and I immediately decide to put my active wear on so I’m ready to head out the door as soon as the kids are fed and dressed. They are always itching to get outside and hop in the buggy which is a win-win for me. It might have something to do with the following amazing features of the sport buggy:
- First of all it looks soooo good. I chose the graffiti print sport as it has a fun, playful, quality to it which I love!
- The newborn ready seat is so simple to use and is comfy for the wee one. The buggy looks just like a regular single buggy, but also grows with your family with the addition of the second seat! Perfect for one or two children, just what I need!
- The air filled tyres are another feature we love. It makes the ride over any terrain comfortable for the kids and also for me.
- What has to be my favourite feature is the clever, auto-stop, hand operated brake system. It prevents a roll-away stroller situation, and can be manually controlled too. This is no joke, I have seen many times, mum stopping to talk to a friend as she takes her hand off the stroller and is unaware of her stoller, and bub gently rolling away!
We head out the door, cross the road and head up the sandy trail that leads onto the beach. The wheels glide easily up the wooden walkway and luckily its low tide so we make our way over to the hard sand. Ahhhh, I breathe a sigh of relief, much needed early morning walk and happy thoughts, tick!
After the morning naps and second feeding, a trip up the road to my local café to meet some friends is on the cards. I dress up for this one and feel stoked to have a buggy that not only works great but looks good too suiting my sense of style. The kids are happy and content travelling smoothly and swiftly along the footpath together.
After an arvo rest and dinner prep is done hubby is home and keen to go for a walk around the mount. The pram easily folds down into a compact size and we pop it into the boot and head off down the road to find a car park. Hubby pushes the pram on the gravel walkway, over the tree roots and up the hills commenting on the ease at which the pram absorbs the bumps and humps.
Hoping into bed that evening, I reflect on an amazing day, full of fresh air and fun adventure and look forward to the alarm going off tomorrow so we can do it all again!
