Sneak preview – 10 hottest buggies due out this year!

After hitting the UK’s largest baby trade show, we’ve got the insider gossip on which new buggies you can expect to roll your way in 2011


Quinny limited edition Q-Design range

Two buggies in the Quinny range, the Buzz and the Zapp, along with the Maxi-Cosi Pebble car seat get a bold new look for the Q-Design range. We’re talking a black buggy chassis and black fabric, with a bold multi-coloured lining and footmuff. The matching Q-Design Pebble car seat means you can keep the striking look going if you want a travel system. The fab news is the cost for the limited edition range will be very close to the price tag for the standard options.


iCandy strawberry buggy

Late last year we spilled the beans to you about the new iCandy buggy that was heading our way,and now we have images to prove just how hot it looks! Yes, iCandy has certainly kept up the fruity goodness with its newest buggy, the Strawberry. Style wise, the seat unit base and carrycot base will be black, with four “flavour packs” allowing you to add your choice of colour for the hood and seat liner. The colours for these packs follow a delicious tea theme – Assam, Earl Grey, Pomegranate and Elderberry.


BabyStyle’s X-Lander buggies

BabyStyle, the name that gave us the Oyster, is due to bring Poland’s biggest selling buggy brand, X-Lander, to the UK. The X-Lander range will include four models:

  • X-Lander Run 3-wheeler (seen here)
  • X-Lander twin buggy (the clue’s in the name!)
  • X-Lander Pram XQ, a 4 wheeler
  • X-Lander Pram QV, a 3 wheeler

It’s the X-Lander Run 3-wheeler that really caught our eye, with its spoke cambered wheels, bell, light and handlebar slow-down lever brake. Price wise, we heard £330, but this isn’t confirmed yet, nor is any release date.


Hauck Turbo Duo buggy

This twin buggy is impressively light if the chitchat we heard is correct – that is, 6kg to 7kg! With independent seat recline and lie-flat seats that are suitable from birth, we imagine this nimble number could work equally well for twins and for siblings of different ages.


Out n About Nipper 360 and Nipper 360 double

These two all-terrain 3-wheelers have just had a spruce up. While retaining all the features that earned them their cult status, the Nipper 360s have both received 30 tweaks and upgrades. These range from making the handle height adjustable to a brake pedal and no more spoke wheels. The single Nipper 360 is now also travel system compatible.
