At phil teds, we're a bunch of heads keen to help others. We throw some nice up in the air like we really do care and focus on three charitable initiatives: Buggies for Good, sponsorship of the Surgical Research Trust and our phil teddy bear programme. Our work makes a difference to the lives of people around the world. We're genuinely proud of this... 

phil-ed to the brim with warm fuzzies, in fact.


buggies for good

Buggies for Good is all about giving back - helping deserving families, communities and organisations to keep on, keepin' on. Along with our sample product and seconds stock, we collect pre-loved buggies from our phil&teds and Mountain Buggy friends. All are given a warrant of fitness to ensure they’re in good working order, before being donated back into the community - to families and organisations helping others.

Since launching in 2009, we've rehomed over 500 phil teds and Mountain Buggy products. Families and organisations - including Australian children's hospice - Bear Cottage, an orphanage in South Africa, and New Zealand's Ronald McDonald House - are now able to support their cause more easily. 

We want to do more! So, if you’ve got a buggy that you want to give the push, or know of an organisation or family that we can help, email [email protected] . From buggy donations to charitable associations, we heart helping.

Note: Through Buggies for Good, we donate a limited number of buggies to vulnerable families or organisations who really need that product, long term. We don't offer a short term hire/lending service on any of our buggies.

Surgical Research Trust & phil teddy

At phil teds, we align ourselves with organisations that seek to make a positive change in the world. The Surgical Research Trust does just that! It gives Kiwi researchers the opportunity to further both medical and surgical knowledge through funding chosen research projects. From investigations into better anaesthetic techniques to the evaluation of paediatric trauma scores, we're genuinely proud to say that we've aided $120K worth of research.

As part of phil teds' sponsorship of the Surgical Research Trust, thousands of phil teddy bears will be donated to Kiwi kids undergoing surgery. It's great to have a friend when you're in hospital during, what can be, a scary time. From comfort cuddles to smiles on dials, phil teddy is there to make a child's recovery that little bit more bear-able. As well as being a little buddy, phil teddy can be used by doctors as a prop when explaining a surgical procedure. Each bear comes with an adoption certificate so that children can name their bear before taking it home and getting better together.
