Dutch Strollers 101: Getting to Know the Brands

Dutch Strollers 101: Getting to Know the Brands

Choosing a baby stroller may be overwhelming, especially for first time parents. Too many brands to choose from, too many makes and models ... in a variety of price ranges. What is the best choice for your family? My advice is to your research, look at the advantages and disadvantages of each, and consider your needs and your budget.

In today's guest post, writer Liese Bokdam gives you an Overview of different Dutch Strollers brands and the history of each. It's an interesting topic, and I hope you enjoy learning.

There's a Dutch saying "use your brain if you lack the muscle". This is a relatively small country like Holland, where they mostly depend on knowledge and design capabilities to be successful in the modern world. The stroller branch is a perfect example that this is far from impossible. Not many people know this, but a lot of popular strollers have Dutch roots. This article will discuss these strollers, and take a look at what could be the next rising Dutch stroller.

Bugaboo

Another worldwide recognized stroller brand is Quinny, now owned by the Canadian Dorel Industries Inc. which also produces the Maxi Cosi car seats. The Quinny brand was founded by the Dutch company Quint B.V. In 2001, after designing strollers for more than half a century, the company was sold to Dorel Industries. Dorel, however, decided to stay in Holland and outsource the design of the new strollers to Dutch company Van der Veer Designers, where in 2004 the Quinny Buzz and Quinny Zapp were born, and in 2009 the Quinny Senzz. In 2007, Van der Veer Designers also designed the Maxi Cosi Mura for Dorel, which is in fact a Dutch design as well.

Mutsy & Easywalker

With Bugaboo, Quinny and the Maxi Cosi Mura already on the list, what else have we got? For example Mutsy and Easywalker strollers. Although less popular than the previous ones, they are sold all over the world, and models like the Mutsy Rider or the Easywalker Duo are quiet known in the US as well. Although both companies and designers are Dutch, the designer of Easywalker was inspired by American stroller use. So maybe that one does not really count.

The Future - Joolz & amp; Mima

So what's new? Well, maybe not all that new, but in 2007 the Joolz Bloom was first introduced. The Dutch owner Emile Kuenen writes on his website, he and his partners got the idea to create the Joolz stroller on a sunny day in Amsterdam, 2005, cruising the city canals on a boat trip. After the Bloom in 2007, the current Joolz Day was first seen in 2009, which is a perfect version of the Bloom. This stroller is fighting the odds and keeps gaining more and more market share in Europe. The stroller design focuses on ergonomics, keeping tall people in mind. This might turn out to be a very successful formula.
