Bugaboo Donkey £1,200 @ John Lewis
In doing so, I came across THIS article about the latest Bugaboo, named the 'Donkey' - whoever came up with that name should be fired in my opinion, whatever happened to interesting and exotic sounding Bugaboo names like the 'Cameleon'...?
I remember the fuss and hoo-hah surrounding the Bugaboo pushchairs when I was pregnant with my youngest; I didn't get it then and I don't get it now.
Apparently the Bugaboo Donkey is selling out across the country despite having a £1,200 price tag!
Are people insane?
It was launched last week and according to the article in the Mail, John Lewis were selling them at the rate of one an hour; madness.
I've always viewed pushchairs and strollers as a necessary evil and have never paid more than £50 for one - the last one, a Mamas and Papas three-wheeler travel system came from eBay for about forty five quid.
SO...am I missing the point here?
What IS the big deal with pushchairs that require a small mortgage for the average Joe to be able to afford? Mariah Carey is supposed to be the proud owner of a Bugaboo Donkey.
Just think of all the other things you could do with the best part of a thousand pounds if you were tight-fisted like me, when it comes to pushchairs, and only spent £50 on on!
I want to know, would YOU spend this much money on a pushchair?! Or maybe you already have; sorry for calling you 'insane' but you could go on a pretty decent holiday for that sort of money.
Of course, if this is the pushchair of your dreams then it's available from John Lewis for £1,200.
