Madonna’s mad for it

Wellington-based company “Phil & Ted changed my life,” writes Examiner.com’s Kate Byrd of the New Zealand “stroller gurus”, going on to give ten reasons why she loves her buggy. “I researched double strollers for months. Testing, pushing, reading. In the end I got the Phil and Ted’s Sport Buggy with the doubles kit.” Byrd’s reasons include: colour, weight and width. “It’s a stroller I will use for a long time and suited for children from infant to five years with high weight limits … And did I mention that Gwyneth Paltrow has the exact same one? Seriously, she and Madonna go on walks together with it.” Phil and Ted’s Most Excellent Buggy Company’s products sell in 1800 stores in more than 43 countries. Other ventures include Mokopuna Merino baby clothes and Bam! nursery hardware. The company also acquired Hubco, a designer and marketer of car roof racks and accessories.
