Big news from Britax

It’s a big day in the stroller world!

Two leading brands have come together to bring you a match made in heaven… Britax and BOB.

BRITAX, the world’s premier manufacturer and marketer of children’s car safety seats and strollers, today announced the acquisition of BOB, a leading, innovative, high-quality maker of jogging strollers.

“We’ve admired for some time BOB’s ingenuity and commitment to customers and are convinced that its products, customer service, and business ethics make it a natural fit for BRITAX. This purchase reinforces BRITAX global leadership in child safety and mobility, and is fully in line with our international growth strategy. We have no plans to change the BOB name; in fact we are excited to expand the BOB product range globally.” says Karl Kahofer, CEO of BRITAX Child Safety.

Are you as excited as I am to see what the future holds? Not only does this mean that Britax car seats will be compatible with BOB strollers (finally), we just might see some new products (at least I hope so)!

BOB cofounder and CEO, Roger Malinowski, added, “we simply wanted to design and manufacture the world’s best single-wheel bike trailers, and later, the world’s best strollers for active, sports-minded parents. When you look at the thoughtful engineering behind the BRITAX stroller line and the revolutionary design behind its car seats, you can see why our two companies will fit well together.”

Here at Baby Gizmo, we hope this means that the Britax B-Ready stroller will be outfitted with better tires. If so, it will be a near-perfect stroller!

But what I want to know is, where was my wedding invite?
