Is anyone else finding this vaguely amusing, or is it just me?

SpiderBaby Thu 19-Jul-07 18:06:58

Pushchairs change colour?

FirenzeandZooey Thu 19-Jul-07 18:08:22

There really is a time of year when the colours change?

This is bonkers

I thought you meant via some "intelligent" fabric, like some kind of chameleon

SpiderBaby Thu 19-Jul-07 18:09:12

yes like their 'new; range

FirenzeandZooey Thu 19-Jul-07 18:15:15

Yes I got the idea about it being a new range, but am gobsmacked that

a) there is a set time of year when this happens


b) that people would be bothered about it enough to find out when this was

I did find it kinda mad myself, my pushchair was totally last season when i got it

MadEyemarthamooDy Thu 19-Jul-07 18:16:48

I'd be more inclined to wait til the new colours came out (and who knew they even did that, eh?) then see if I could get one cheaper because it was the old colour. But only if I actually needed a new pushchair...

Silver Cross change in April

Pushchairs change colour? Weirdly, mine has been the same colour since we first bought it a couple of kids ago. Actually, I lie -- it's gone from bright turquoise to muted turquoise with strong overtones of grey.

But seriously: people care about having the most uptodate pushchair? Why? [puzzled emoticon]

frogs, the other day someone was angsting over matching her pushchair (I toldher she'd look like a foot muff if she tried to coordinate )

they change throughout the year, m+p introduced new colours earlier this year, bugaboo bringing out denier fabrics about now, maclarens i think were done beginning of the year.

repeat after me, misdee:

"my name is misdee and I'm a pushchair addict"

MadEyeMisdee Thu 19-Jul-07 18:41:32

i just get emailed when the new ranges come out.

bundle Thu 19-Jul-07 18:42:41


don't they just realise, they're feeding your habit???

tut tut

MadEyeMisdee Thu 19-Jul-07 18:44:09

haha, sometime i just laugh and go 'what the heck is that!!'

Sheherazadethegoat Thu 19-Jul-07 18:48:45

omg, it is just like cars! i really resent knowing this.

MadEyeMisdee Thu 19-Jul-07 18:52:05

i dont care if my buggy is out of date tbh. i have a battered maclaren triuph which i rescused. buying the raincover for it was the same ££ as the buggy. still a bargain at that price.

happydays6 Thu 19-Jul-07 19:22:08

I didn't word that very well did i..I'm looking at buying a light weight pushchair to use through the holiday on the bus.I would of liked the maclaren because its light just don't like the brown colour it's in at the moment.Yes i know its sad thinking about the colour but there you go,just wondered if they were going to change soon.

SpiderBaby Thu 19-Jul-07 19:24:16

I only know they bring out new colours/ranges because I have just bought an 'old range' pram for about £200-£300 under the original retail price, just because its old range. Bloody stupid

MadEyeMisdee Thu 19-Jul-07 19:34:03

mad isnt it spiderbaby. i know m+p reduced their afternoon tea pramettes to £150 in some stores. they are RRP of £400, still higher price on websites.

happydays6 Thu 19-Jul-07 19:35:35

It was only a question i didn't think anybody would be that about it.It wasn't so i could have the newest one out(even though thats up to me)i just don't like the brown and dh would go mad if i put him in a pink one.I thought that mn would be the place to find out but never mind.
