It’s a year of change for three-wheeled pushchair powerhouse Out n About, which has been innovating all-terrain buggies for over 20 years. At the end of last year, Frederick de Coninck-Smith took over the reins of Britain’s much-loved buggy brand. As Director, he has taken Out ‘n’ About to new heights with a brand refresh and the launch of the fifth iteration of Nipper pushchairs.
‘Go anywhere together’
First debuted in 2001, the original Nipper pushchair was inspired by founder Andy Fensom’s search for a rugged, all-terrain buggy for his newborn daughter. Four years later, the Nipper was upgraded to v1, revolutionising the industry with a 360 degree swivel front wheel. V2 brought about an adjustable handlebar and travel system compatibility, amongst other features, and was quickly given a fresh new look for v3 two years later. By 2014, the Nipper was in its fourth iteration, and had expanded to include Nipper Double, Little Nipper, GT and GT double.
Now, in 2023, this iconic buggy has received its fifth upgrade. Celebrating over two decades of innovation, the highly anticipated v5 range has been developed with the help of feedback from parents across the nation. Improvements to the range include water-resistant fabric, extendable hood, and, crucially, a one-hand quick fold mechanism. What’s more, the brand itself has seen a refreshing new redesign, with the new Nipper range boasting the brand’s updated logo and flashes of its signature orange colour scheme.
‘We have listened attentively to customer feedback. With the launch of the new v5 range, we have strived to reflect what modern parents desire in an all-terrain pushchair,’ says new director Frederick de Coninck-Smith.
Key features of the new Nipper v5 include:
One-hand fold – as parents themselves, the Out ‘n’ About team know how useful it is to be able to quickly fold your pushchair with just one hand. With the v5’s new quick-fold technology, you can effortlessly collapse your buggy, even with a baby on your hip!
Quality materials – the waterproof fabric helps you prepare for any outdoor adventure, while the high quality feel of the Nipper v5 provides extra comfort and a more premium design.
Additional sun protection – the Nipper’s new extendable hood offers improved protection from the sun’s harsh rays, keeping your baby safe on your adventures.
Added convenience – all of Out ‘n’ About’s products are designed to be practical and functional, and this new range offers additional features for your convenience, including an easy-to-use five-point harness, redesigned back strap for simpler seat recline, and a larger basket for ample storage.
‘New quick-fold technology for an effortless, one-handed fold’
