It seems that three-wheeler buggies are out of fashion - at one time they were the ultimate accessory for celebrity families and trendy Mums, but is it still the case? Industry figures show that that sales of the three-wheelers have fallen by 12% over the last 12 months. This is not because births have fallen, but because the more traditional four-wheeler buggies have seen a 23% increase in sales.
During the early 2000's, the three-wheelers were the envy of many the parents pushing the traditional four-wheelers. They looked quirky, they seemed modern and fashionable, they seemed to handle well and the babies always looked fine in them. But they cost a whopping £600!
All those who suffered a bit of pram envy can now relax as it seems the three-wheelers were not every mummies dream chariot. It has been reported that they were cumbersome, difficult to get on and off public transport, and that even folded they took up lots of space.
It seems that three-wheelers was a phase that has now passed. Four-wheelers are back on the wish list as they are he preferred option for many parents.
A sales rep from Tesco said that sales of three-wheelers were dropping while a rep from John Lewis said they were still growing, but that four-wheelers were growing more.
Phil and Ted's, a leading supplier of three-wheelers, said that sales are still strong.
So, who knows? Just opt for a buggy that you like the feel of, that's not too heavy to manoeuver, that will fit on you car or the space you wish to store it... oh yes, and that is comfortable for the baby who must suffer it!
