Pushchairs and Accessories

A
pushchair is probably the most important thing a new parent will buy. It is certainly one of the most expensive - especially if they get it wrong and end up buying more than one!

The choice facing the new parent is overwhelming. No way are they going to be able to consider every one on the market. So how do they decide?

First, there's the ever present internet and the 'reviews' found there and what friends and relatives have bought. These all depend on some other parent knowing about a particular product. Could this be why sales of some pushchairs suddenly take off? A good set of wheels and people talk about it, so more people buy it so more people talk about it so more people buy and so on.

But a pushchair that's selling well will attract the attention of the internet sites and the attention of parents seeking the best possible price. The result is that the price – and therefore margins – fall. Maybe it is best for new parents to buy a popular model, but perhaps not in the interest of retailers to sell them!

The secret as always is for retailers to find good pushchairs at a good price from lesser known brands - and plug them as much as they can! Without any help, a new parent is unlikely to know what they will need and a good retailer will help.

The most important features are probably (not in any particular order!)

  • whether they need/want a travel system or a carrycot
  • rearward and forward facing - or not
  • swivel or fixed wheels
  • adjustable handles
  • ease of folding
  • suspension
  • leg/calf support
  • type of tyres
  • weight

And, of course, the colour/style and the price!!

So, they've got the pushchair and they think that's all they'll need for going out and about with baby. Not so! If the heavens open, they'll need a raincover, and if the sun makes an unaccustomed appearance and shines brightly, baby needs a sunshade.

Baby also needs naptimes so sleep covers help baby to sleep in the buggy without distractions, enabling parents to still be about their business without messing with this all-important routine. There are many dedicated products for this purpose, and are far better than fussing and struggling with a blanket. Sleep covers can also double up as protection from the sun, as parasols and sunshades, whilst looking attractive, have very little in the way of effective protection. Explaining the facts about SPFs and the need to protect baby's delicate skin - even in the average British summer - is something you may need to do.

Footmuffs could be considered a perfect product. Inexpensive but extremely practical, they create a more individual look to a pushchair, which can appeal to many parents. There are a number of superb designs along with some luscious fabrics which can be a joy to touch. Fashionable and practical, what more could a parent want?

Pushchairs are one of the more expensive products for little ones, and sadly there is a market for stolen ones. Surgeries and the like don't help matters by insisting that such items be left outside, where they're vulnerable. New parents are likely to be unaware of the risks, so it is entirely down to the retailer to point out that their new purchase is easily protected by a buggy lock. With several on the market, there's plenty to choose from.

Entertaining baby with toys whilst on the move is something worth considering, along with the required gadgets to prevent them from being lost overboard. There are also gizmos and inspired ideas to help the parents, from places to keep keys to handy holders that store drink bottles and cans.

In fact, the accessories available for pushchairs and buggies are so varied in use and style that the extra sales cannot but help the bottom line!
