We're real people, doing real stuff. And most importantly, we care! We focus on 3 phil&thropic areas because we can make a difference to the lives of people around the world. phil&teds heads love to support authentic, relevant organisations such as The Women's Refuge , Ronald McDonald House around the world, Australia'a St Kilda Mums and 'Changing Lives' in Thailand - read more here!
Our 'chief cook & bottle washer' came up with the idea on an Air NZ flight, when asked to donate to 'Change for Good'. He thought that maybe owners of pre-loved phil&teds or Mountain Buggy products may want to play their part and donate back to us... So in 2009, 'Buggies for Good' was born!
We collect pre-loved buggies from generous gems around the world, then our clever little engineers and service fellas give ‘em the once over to make sure they’re in good working order. The jazzed-up-beauties are donated to a deserving cause, organisation or charity within the community.
Since launching in 2009, we've housed over 500 buggies.

We strongly believe in the selfless work of New Zealand's Surgical Research Trust and their groundbreaking research. A phil&teddy bear is given to each child undergoing surgery at Wellington Hospital, to help to put a smile on their face and to provide a friend for comfort during a scary time. phil&teddy is there to make a child's recovery just that little bit more “bear-able”.
After 10 years of building reciprocal business growth relationships in China, phil&teds took the opportunity to deliver back by supporting the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s tour of this fantastic country in 2013. At first glance it may seem an unusual sponsorship choice, but phil&teds is well known for a ‘business as un-usual’ mantra, and decisions such as this are never without sound motive. “There’s so much to this,” says chief cook & bottle washer, Campbell Gower. “We’ve long bridled at the perception that
China is an unsophisticated ‘factory for the world’. It’s a country with a tremendous cultural history, and a currency of high performance business."
“At phil&teds we’ve built a high performance culture benchmarked daily against tough international competition. You gotta be the best! And we like to think that mirrors Royal New Zealand Ballet. So we want to celebrate the innovation, performance culture and abundant creativity of the Company, and it’s truly thrilling to see that reflected in Chinese media,” says Gower.
Did you know that phil&teds' very own chief cook & bottle washer donates a massive $25K a year to the NZ Surgical Research Trust? Pretty generous right? But wait, there's more...
Did you know that in the last 3 years, phil&teddy bears has made surgery that little bit more 'bearable' for over 5,000 little people within New Zealand?
Did you know that throughout 2012 and 2013, we refurbished and delivered over 300 buggies globally under our 'Buggies for Good' initiative? And that every one we send out, or collect from a generous gem in NZ, is free of charge thanks to the support of Peter Baker Transport ?
Did you know that throughout 2012 and 2013, we've had over 55 donations?! Which means organisations, fundraisers and community projects are now able to support their cause more easily, thanks to phil&teds and Mountain Buggy generous gems!
