Phil & Teds
Phil and Teds was started in the mid 1990’s with the goal of helping parents to retain a sense of self while living a dynamic life with their kids. Originally formed by a father and son team in New Zealand, Phil and his dad Ted came up with the design concept of the in line stroller. Phil and Teds really got its start when the company’s product caught the attention of an investment banker who invested in the company and later, in 1998, purchased the company and became CEO of Phil and Teds.
Today Phil and Teds is based in Newtown, New Zealand and is sold all over the world. Phil and Teds has quickly become a favorite stroller brand by parents and is considered practical and reliable. The company strives to not be your typical juvenile company and is a little bit quirky. By the fun names they give to their products to the employees they hire, referred to as phil&teds heads, they want to ensure that even the most active and busiest parents have products that are easy to use and can take them anywhere they go.
Phil and Teds offers a wide range of stylish products that allow parents to adapt and survive with children in tow. Their stroller line consists of a full line of inline buggies that adapt from newborn to toddlerhood and offer doubles kits to purchase to be able to accommodate two children comfortably. The inline buggy that started it all is called the Classic and the other models are the Explorer, Vibe, Verve, and Promenade. They also offer a compact stroller called the Smart and the world’s fastest jogging stroller, the Sub 4. They also offer travel cribs, carriers, high chair and travel high chairs, bouncers, and lots of items to outfit your stroller to adapt and survive the wonderful world of having kids.
By far our favorite Phil and Teds items are the Explorer inline stroller and the Nest travel bed that really goes anywhere with you! The Phil and Teds Explorer stroller is the newer version of the Sport stroller that is an inline stroller that accommodate two infants or toddlers by using a doubles kit, has one hand fast fold, large sun hood, seat performance system, and lots of available accessories. The Nest is a travel bed that sets up in about 10 seconds and folds just as fast. It can be used for short naps on the go or for overnight when traveling.
