Mee-Go at the Harrogate Nursery Fair 2015
We love the innovation of Mee-Go. There is always something new to see on the Mee-Go stand at the Harrogate Nursery Fair, and 2015 has been no different! Mee-Go had several new products on display this year.
There was an amazing tandem based on the single Mee-Go Inspire pushchair. This is a tandem pushchair that will certainly turn heads with it’s stylish and unusual chassis! This is definitely a pushchair which will make you stand out from the crowd. The Mee-Go Inspire Tandem can take two carrycots, two seat units, two Maxi-Cosi infant car seats or a mix of any of these. Pannier bags, Maxi-Cosi adaptors and raincovers also come in the package. It will cost £850 and will be available from late summer in the UK.
There were two very lightweight pushchairs on show for the first time – the Mee-Go Feather and the Mee-Go Qpid. These have been developed using honeycomb alloy tubing which takes its inspiration from a Beehive. This allows the pushchairs to be robust but very light.
The red, blue and purple strollers above are quite aptly named the ‘Feather’ to reflect their super-lightweight of just 4.32kgs! Wow! This modern looking stroller, with a black or a white chassis, is suitable from birth and would make a perfect car buggy or holiday pushchair. We love that the rear of the seat is enclosed when reclined; there is a good footrest; a bumper bar and a liner all included in the price. The fold is really easy to do one handed, so that the Feather will be a good option for anyone who uses public transport – a baby can be picked up and held in one arm, whilst the pushchair is folded with the other hand. The lightweight of the Feather, plus the one handed fold, will probably make this buggy an interesting option for anyone who lives in a flat. The Feather pushchair folds in an upright position – so there are no dirty fabrics, and the handle is there ready to carry, so no bending down to pick the chassis up. The Mee-Go Feather will retail at a competitive £125 and will be available from the end of June / beginning of July.
The grey and the purple pushchairs in the photos are the Mee-Go Qpid. There is also a red and black colourway which is not pictured. The Mee-Go Quid is another lightweight pushchair, however it is a little bigger than the Feather, and has a wider seat. However at just 4.8kgs, this is another very lightweight pushchair which will be fantastic for anyone who requires a light pushchair. The Qpid folds in half using a pull handle in the middle of the seat (similar to a Baby Jogger, the Joie Litetrax or Britax B-Agile). The Qpid has a huge basket and a lie flat recline with a lift up calf rest. The Qpid is suitable from birth. The Mee-Go Qpid will be available to buy from the end of July. It will cost just £159.99.
Mee-Go had a superb toddler ride on board, called the Mee-Go Rider. This board attaches simply to the rear of any pushchair (in a similar flexible attachment style to the Bumprider which we reviewed here) and provides a sit down seat for a toddler, complete with their own steering wheel and flashing lights (see the last three photos which aren’t very clear but show the lights flashing in red, blue and green)! The Mee-Go Rider will arrive in the UK in June and will retail at £75.
Above the Mee-Go Rider in the photos, is an extendable handle which attaches to the normal pushchair handlebar. This amazing invention gives you extra space behind the pushchair handlebar, which means no more kicking a stroller board as you walk along. We will admit to being a little dubious at first as to how well the extendable handle would work, however this quickly evaporated as we discovered it was really easy to push and steer using the handle (admittedly with no child on board). Even Little Miss BB could steer a pushchair successfully around a very small space on the display stand – and believe me, you needed good control not to knock things over! At £29.99 this is a gadget that we would love to try out!
Well done Mee-Go! We look forward to seeing these products later this year!
