Bugaboo X Pendleton Collection - As a special fall project, the team at Bugaboo has collaborated with Pendleton Woolen Mills on a few beautiful and warm patterned baby stroller sun canopies. 

Using Pendleton’s well known black & red “Rob Roy” checkered tartan, Bugaboo has decorated their specious Donkey model. The Donkey includes not only this fancy Pendleton canopy, but also a handy side basket and the capacity to be configure for more then one child. It’s a perfect stroller for parents who have a planned, or un-planned for that matter, child on the way.

The Crossroads design, found on Bugaboo’s most rugged stroller, reflects First Nations teachings and the power of the four directions. The pattern represents wonderfully this adventure- seeker’s stroller as, whether it be North, South, East or West, parents with the Cameleon³ want to be ready for any stroller challenge

Lastly, the Spirit of the Peoples pattern, developed by Pendleton in celebration of the 100th year anniversary, graces the simpler, lightweight and maneuverable Bugaboo Bee. In celebration of the family, the pattern shows various colors and shapes making it an hip, urbanite-parent’s dream.

All three Bugaboo x Pendleton models will be available on September 1st via bugaboo.com, so set your clocks and be ready for this drop because  we are pretty sure this is some of the biggest Baby hype that we have seen for a while.

adidas Kids Springblade - If your kids are looking for an explosive reaction on any surface, the new Springblade introduced in-stores today by adidas might be the running shoes they need.

The adidas Spingblade’s newly engineered outsole features 16 forward angled blades made of a high-tech polymer. These blades absorb energy when loaded and unleash it on the launch.The highly elastic like blades react quickly and efficiently to every movement without disrupting the runners regular flow.

The Techfit construction on the upper part of the shoe was engineered for a natural, yet flexible support system while still locking the foot and helping in delivering the energy returned from the springy outsole.

All in all the new Springblade, available in Black and Red for kids, is a really neat new take on performance running shoes. Pretty impressive if I do say. 

Ruff & Huddle AW13 Collection - New UK kidswear brand, Ruff & Huddle,  has created a wonderful new collection of streetwear inspired goods that encapsulates that fearless yet sweet lil rebel in every kid.

As much as we like Ruff & Huddle’s AW13 collection of well designed sweats and graphic tees, the young brand’s killer jackets are what really caught our eye.

We love R&H’s classic college Varsity jacket with its epic stitched lion motif and the ‘ROAR’ applique on the front. Their M1 bomber jacket is also pretty impressive. The tattoo like patches really give it an edge that your boys will totally love.

To see more, check out Ruff & Huddle’s AW13 collection this August via ruffandhuddle.co.uk. Or, at Selfridges in September.
