The evolution of Baby Strollers: From prams to high-tech travel systems

From our humble beginnings to our cutting-edge high-tech travel systems, we've come a long way in providing parents with top-of-the-line stroller solutions. Join us on this exciting journey through time as we explore the transformation of Baby Jogger strollers!


The Pram Era: Where It All Began

The Baby Jogger story began in the 1980s when a father named Phil Baechler needed a stroller that could keep up with his active lifestyle. Frustrated with the lack of suitable options on the market, he decided to create his own. This marked the inception of the first Baby Jogger stroller, designed specifically for jogging while providing a comfortable ride for the child.


The Baby Jogger Classic: Function Meets Fitness (1984)

In 1984, Baby Jogger introduced the world to its ground-breaking creation—the Baby Jogger Classic. This innovative stroller combined the functionality of a traditional stroller with the ruggedness needed for jogging. With its three-wheel design and pneumatic tires, it was the perfect solution for parents who wanted to stay active while spending quality time with their little ones.


Baby Jogger's City Series: Urban Exploration (1990s - Early 2000s)

As the '90s rolled in, Baby Jogger expanded its offerings with the City Series, which catered to urban parents who needed a stroller that could handle city streets and sidewalks. These strollers were praised for their manoeuvrability, lightweight design, and compact fold, making them ideal for navigating crowded streets and public transportation.


Revolutionising the Stroller Industry: The Patented Quick-Fold Technology (2002)

In 2002, Baby Jogger once again raised the bar with the introduction of its patented Quick-Fold Technology. This ground-breaking innovation allowed parents to fold their strollers with one hand in a matter of seconds. It was a game-changer for busy parents on the go, eliminating the hassle of struggling with bulky strollers.


Adaptability and Convenience: The City Select (2010)

In 2010, Baby Jogger introduced the City Select, a versatile stroller that could be configured in various seating arrangements. This gave parents the flexibility to use it as a single stroller, a double stroller, or even with a glider board for a third child. The City Select exemplified Baby Jogger's commitment to adaptability and convenience.


High-Tech Travel Systems: A Glimpse into the Future (21st Century)

Fast forward to the 21st century, and Baby Jogger continues to innovate. Our strollers have embraced high-tech features, offering parents a seamless and connected experience. GPS tracking, smartphone apps, temperature sensors, and self-folding mechanisms are just some of the features that modern Baby Jogger strollers offer.


Baby Jogger's Ongoing Commitment

As we reflect on our journey, from our inception in the '80s to our current high-tech offerings, one thing remains constant: Baby Jogger's commitment to providing parents with strollers that make their lives easier, whether they're joggers, urban explorers, or tech-savvy mums and dads.


We are proud to have evolved with the changing needs of parents, and we look forward to continuing this journey of innovation. The future holds exciting possibilities for Baby Jogger strollers, and we can't wait to keep pushing the boundaries of what's possible in the world of stroller design.
