2019 marks 20 years of Bugaboo. What started from 1 man’s idea to revolutionise the pushchair industry grew to become a brand synonymous with innovative and functional pushchairs made for the modern family.
From a simple student's graduation project idea grew a dedicated and passionate team working from an attic room in Amsterdam to produce the first Bugaboo pushchair. This small team worked fanatically yet confidently on the very first Bugaboo product, changing the graduation project into a stroller ready to meet the needs of parents everywhere.
Since the first pushchair launch in 1999, Bugaboo have just gone from strength to strength to bring parents the best solutions and innovative designs. Bugaboo have revolutionised the entire industry and continue to bring new standout designs.
A great example of Bugaboo’s dedication to innovation and their constantly evolving design focus is the launch of their brand new Bugaboo Ant, their lightest and most compact stroller yet designed for travelling with little ones.
Meet the Bugaboo Ant. The small stroller for big adventures.
Travel with children?
The thought of travelling with children can often feel overwhelming. How will I get on the plane with a stroller? Will the streets be smooth and paved when I get there? Will there be delays? Will it be too hot? And how on earth am I going to pack all this stuff?
Thinking in advance about everything that could go wrong can often feel so off-putting that it feels safer just to stay at home. But what if travelling with children could be easier? What if it could actually be enjoyable?!
Introducing the Bugaboo Ant
The Bugaboo Ant was born from the realisation that parents needed a stroller that would give them the confidence they needed for all of their adventures—both those closer to home and further afield.
Bugaboo set out to create a stroller that is as compact as it is comfortable; creating an entirely new design to foresee and solve all of the challenges that parents may face on their journeys. It’s packed full of smart and thoughtful features to make travelling with children a breeze.
The Bugaboo Ant is Bugaboo’s lightest and most compact stroller yet. At just 7.2 kg / 15.8 lbs it’s easy to lift and carry, and can be used as a carry-on for airlines thanks to its most compact folded size of 55 x 38 x 23 cm (9.03 x 14.96 x 21.65 inch).
But don’t be fooled by its lightweight composition, the Bugaboo Ant is super strong and can carry a child up to 22 kg / 50 lbs. It also has an additional 8kg of additional storage capacity thanks to its always accessible rear luggage basket and large underseat basket—perfect for all that baby stuff!
Integrated suspension provides a smooth, easy ride that supports the whole weight of your child. A reclinable, ergonomic seat has been designed to improve your child’s posture as well as increase their comfort, and it’s also reversible—so you have the choice as to whether to position your child facing you or facing the world. The Bugaboo Ant also has an easy manoeverability making it easy to push and steer with one hand and on any terrain, so it’s comfortable for you to drive as well as for your child to ride in.
The confidence to embrace your next adventure
With every last detail thought of when it comes to travelling with children, the Bugaboo Ant is the compact stroller that is sure to revolutionise your journey and become your greatest travel companion.
So the only question left is – where will you go?!
