Walking the Talk

When you love buggies & babies as much as we do, its always a thrill to see them in their natural environment. So you can imagine that when we were invited to participate in the annual Sports Wellington Buggy Walk, we were pretty excited about it.
On the day of the walk Spring showers had held off thankfully, although the grass was soft underfoot and a bit muddy. With 1000 parents and friends in attendance, as well as their army of buggies it was clear that a little bit of mud wouldn’t stop everyone having a good time.
phil&teds had set up a Buggy Pit Stop tent to ensure that the only people left flat out were the kind folks making coffee for the crowd. A mix of customer support and engineer flavoured phil&teds heads busied themselves pumping tyres and dispensing advice. In return we were all delighted with the welcome, insightful conversations & smiles from the little ones.
One memorable moment personally was seeing a parent pushing a legacy e3 model with the handle height clearly too high for their stature. Turning the handle around to the lower position and much more suitable pushing height made a real difference to their day and also taught them something about their buggy they didn’t know.
Afterwards with smiles on our faces and mud on our knees we enjoyed watching the Dress up your Buggy competition winners being announced and were very enthused that a phil&teds model took out first place. Not only that, with so many phil&teds and Mountain Buggies in the crowd we felt like we were in our element & that we had made a difference.
