We have been asked by Bugaboo to find 7 MN bloggers with a new baby aged up to 6 months (9 months for one item) to try one of their pushchairs and to then review it on their blog.

This is also open to those who are pregnant and due to give birth in the next couple of weeks or so.

If you don't have a baby of this age or aren't pregnant then please disregard this email. Do keep an eye on your inbox for further opportunities with MN bloggers.

Here’s what Bugaboo has to say, “We would like to use Mumsnet bloggers to help people throughout the stages of pregnancy with the choice of their pushchair. We understand this is both an emotional and functional purchase and we want to ensure that ‘mum-to-be’ can find the information on Bugaboo pushchairs they need to. We want to hear ‘real life’ stories from bloggers using a Bugaboo pushchair”

We have a range of pushchairs available to review by MN bloggers, you can pick the one you think is the best fit for you on the application form.

Bugaboo Cameleon3 – one available – worth £845
Bugaboo say “we call this our iconic pushchair. It can be easily adapted for ‘city, woods, sand or snow’ – perhaps suitable for a blogger that lives in a large town”.

Bugaboo Bee3 – two available – worth £539
Bugaboo say “The urban pushchair- great for a blogger that lives in a city”

Bugaboo Buffalo – one available – worth £905
Bugaboo say “The all-terrain pushchair – great for parents who love to discover. Any bloggers who are into ‘country living’, walks, outdoor life etc would love this one!”

Bugaboo Donkey – one available – worth £1015
Bugaboo say “this is our convertible stroller- if you’ve got a new born and a slightly older baby this could work for you, although it’s also great for twins”

Bugaboo Runner chassis – two available – worth £389
Bugaboo say “The Bugaboo Runner chassis comes as a jogging extension for the Bugaboo Cameleon³, Bugaboo Bee (2010 model onwards), Bugaboo Donkey and Bugaboo Buffalo - it's designed purely for running" (full compatability check info here). For this one you'd already need one of these pushchairs and a baby of 9 months plus, you'll be testing the chassis.

If selected, you’d be sent the pushchair/ runner chassis and asked to review it and to then to write two blog posts - right at the beginning of your ownership to answer some initial questions, feelings, thoughts etc and to describe the difficulties in choosing a pushchair – this would be due in December. The 2nd post would need to be after 4 months or so (i.e. February-March 2016, exact date to be confirmed) to talk about how it’s helped your day to day life, including real life examples. We’d love to see photo and video in the blog post (and video promoted via YouTube).

Once all posts are in the blog posts will then be featured on our widget. The widget appears on c350 blogs across the MN network. To take part you'd also need to have the widget on your blog. We'd need you to include a link to the Bugaboo website in your blog post. You'd need to follow our guidelines for bloggers reviews, which will be sent to you. We'd also like you to tweet your review, as well as promote both blog posts on other social media channels. Please note Bugaboo may well use your blog post on their website, on social media as well as possibly elsewhere.

Testers will also need to add a review to the relevant category on MN

Selected bloggers will be able to keep the item for their own personal use so long as they blog / write a review as required.

If you'd like to take part please add your details on this form

We will be in touch with the selected bloggers asap
