BREAKING NEWS! Britax release not one but TWO new pushchairs!
This week has seen the news from Britax that they will be adding not one, but two new pushchairs to their line up over the coming months. Firstly, they are set to release three wheeled version of their very popular B-Agile, to sit alongside their traditional four wheel version. The new version is perfect for families who want a 3 wheeled buggy to go slightly more off the beaten track and explore. With built in suspension and a lockable swivel front wheel the ride will be smooth even over rough terrain and the puncture resistant tyres mean you don’t have to worry where you left your pump!
As if this wasn’t exciting enough, Britax have also released news that they have a B-Agile double in the pipeline! This side by side version of their single B-Agile is sure to be popular, as many of the favourite features of the single have been carried through to the double. Set to have a height-adjustable handlebar, all wheel suspension, linked parking brake that locks both wheels, and an automatic chassis lock when folded the B-Agile will be a feature packed option for those looking for a side-by-side double. The shopping basket can be accessed from the back or through a zip on the front leg rest and seat-back pockets offer additional storage space. The extra-large canopies provide plenty of shade and feature mesh ventilation windows that allow parents to check on their children.

New fabric option from Stokke
Another high-end brand with news to announce this week is Stokke, after the release of their exceptionally popular Blue Melange Colour Kit last year, they have announced that they will shortly be releasing another version – Black Melange. Available from around the end of August the new Black Melange is set to enter the Stokke range in the UK as a regular colour (as opposed to a limited edition), so pricing should be in line with current RRP's for the standard colour options.
Let your toddler join the ride with the new Silver Cross Surf Board
Silver Cross have released a ride on toddler board to fit their hugely popular Surf Pushchair. Fitting perfectly with the unusual chassis design and styling of the Surf, the ‘Surf Board’ will allow your toddler to catch a ride when they start to get a bit tired. The lightweight aluminium board features all round suspension, removable swivel wheels and a retaining strap to keep the board out of the way when not in use. The Surf Board is available from the end of August at www.silvercross.co.uk for £75.
