This is a sponsored post.
New Zealand’s own baby goods brand, Mountain Buggy, has received top accolades for their newest product – a side-by-side double buggy – in the German Design Awards 2019 . The brand’s nano duo™ was announced a winner in the Baby and Child care category in the Excellent Product Design segment. The award series attracted over 5,400 participants across 63 countries.
Chief Executive, Campbell Gower, says nano duo™ showcases outstanding innovation, leading performance and first-class engineering. He notes how many parents have struggled with the flimsiness and featureless qualities offered by umbrella strollers, or how often they’re not well suited for babies. “The result is an incredibly lightweight side-by-side double stroller that delivers the perfect solution for city dwelling parents, where storage is at a premium and when pushing two children needs to be effortless.”
Winners were selected from 33 categories by a panel of 45 independent, international judges, composed of representatives from industry, educational institutions and design.
The jury commented: nano duo™ appears a first-rate, light, portable stroller for the larger new family. Outwardly a superb solution for twins and children of similar ages with personalised features and canny use of materials as well as space.
Mr Gower hopes the recent German Design Award win will continue to highlight Mountain Buggy as the first choice baby brand for consumers. “We’ve been designing innovative and award-winning products for over 20 years, with products sold in over 40 markets and more than 1,000 stores worldwide. We’ve had over 20% compound growth in that time. Our iconic Kiwi brand not only pioneered all terrain buggies but also enables parents all around the world to live life without limit. That in itself is gold.”
In August, Mountain Buggy received two accolades in this year’s UK Junior Design Awards, celebrating children’s products with uncompromising style, design and beauty. Mountain Buggy’s nano duo™ was awarded gold for Best Pushchair Design, in addition to the brand’s unirider™ receiving bronze for Best Toy Design 3-5 years.
