How do you make it through the day? Tell us & WIN!

We’d love you to make a 30-60 second video about making it through the day with kid(s) – especially those major pain points!

Are you a city dweller who takes public transport, lives in a small house or apartment, has to think about less space and getting about the city swiftly, but you have some constraints in achieving what you want to do with the kids in tow?

Or, are you someone who wants to go everywhere – we’re talking trail walking, beaches, city – the works!  Urban and outdoor requirements, but life feels restrained because you can’t do it easily?

Allanah B – phil&teds head, and Mum of 1 year old Blake tells us about her struggles to live her life with kids:

“What bugs me? Not my buggy!

So I’m off to pick up my little buddy from daycare and then grab some milk. For a little person she sure needs lots of stuff for one day, so here I am with a giant backpack, little lady lump and two tired arms standing at the car. Stop. Buggy Time. Yes, I just got the buggy out of the car to go 5 minutes down the road to the supermarket. When one’s buggy is literally lighter than your baby, why wouldn’t I? Plus she can’t grab things off the shelf harnessed in her buggy and it’s much sleeker down the aisles than a trolley in the 5pm rush.

Home now, milk in the fridge. Sad puppy eyes from little fluffy dog and a bored, witching-hour baby. Let’s go team, there’re birds, cats and nice old ladies out there to interest and fawn over you both. I’m not so much walking with a buggy and dog, as escorting notable figures around town. Old ladies and school girls flock to us like boy band fans. Just another day in the suburbs with adorable mischief in tow, made easier by a compact & cute conveyance.”

Remember the verve winning video from last year? Amber showed us how tough it was for her! Check this out for inspiration!
