Flexibly on the move in all stages of life

The parents’ demands regarding mobile baby and toddlers’ products are still extremely high and this already applies for new-born babies. When the child is taken outdoors, besides aspects such as safety, quality, being light-weighted and compact, the parents especially rely on products that allow further development and can thus be used for longer. Here, combined pushchair and travel systems are extremely popular among many families, which mean that they only have to dip into their wallets once from the birth up until the end of the pushchair age. Such as, for example, pushchairs with a buggy attachment like those from the F-series by Gesslein, which can be implemented as additional components in a fast and simple way. This means it is no longer necessary to buy a buggy later on.

For many parents it is important that the tiny tots feel comfortable in every situation in life and that they take in as much of their environment as possible. Baby carriers, which guarantee a close contact to the parents while at the same time offering the parents high freedom of movement, are an ideal option here. For instance, the new 360 Collection by Ergobaby offers four different carrying positions: Whether on one’s back, hip, in front of one’s stomach or facing the direction of vision, they provide safe, all-day comfort up until the age of four – and thanks to the new-born’s insert they can be used from day one. A flexible, adjustable back panel and a doubly adjustable waist belt adapt to match the growing baby and additionally support the ergonomics of both the offspring and their parents.

Safe expedition through the urban jungle

The consumers don’t even have to restrict their mobility in “extreme” situations. The foldable pushchair Six-seater by Childhome offers room for up to six children at once and is ideal for use in day care centres or for child minders and big families. At Kind + Jugend 2014, the transport wonder was distinguished with the Innovation Award in the category “World of Moving Baby”. The Cybex Priam, which allows parents to conveniently and comfortably remain mobile in all walks of life, can be used individually. Three exchangeable wheel variations satisfy the demands from smooth tarmac, to bumpy cobblestones or different surfaces for instance in the city and cross-country. A further important mobility theme is the simple handling of car seats and their installation in the car. As a two-in-one seat, the child’s seat Zero.1 Elite by Recaro Child Safety offers optimum protection for babies and children up to a height of 105 cm. As the first 360° rotatable i-Size with a detachable baby carrier to be approved, it was the winner of the Innovation Award 2015 in the category “World of Baby Travelling”.
