what makes

phil&teds is genuinely proud to be one of the world's leading inventors, designers and marketers of juvenile products, like the original inline stroller; combined with a quirky attitude. We reckon this cuts through the clutter of the crowded nursery channel, and helps parents "adapt&survive!"
