Gear Day 2018 – Snuggle Bugz Canada – Coquitlam, BC

Save the Date! Snuggle Bugz Coquitlam’s Gear Day is taking place on Saturday September 15th 2018 from 10am-4pm!  

Join us at Snuggle Bugz Coquitlam – 1300 Woolridge St., Coquitlam

Stroller Day and Car Seat Day has easily become Snuggle Bug’z most popular event in Ontario, so we’ve extended this event to our BC friends. It is a fantastic one-day only Gear extravaganza – a day completely dedicated to all things strollers and car seats with great deals to boot!

Here are some of the highlights of this one-day event:

  • Amazing offers from our most popular stroller and car seat brands – available only at the event!
  • Meet & greet with brand representatives on-hand to compare your favourites and answer all of your questions.
  • Test drive your favourite stroller in real-life situations – grass, sidewalk, bumps and hills!
  • Car seat brand experts on site to answer all questions on safety and compatibility.
  • Buy any stroller or car seat and you will receive a $25 Snuggle Bugz gift card!
  • Free Gift Bag when you register at the event (Hurry, it is while supplies last!)

We have put together some tips on how to get through the event with the absolute most fun:

Rain Rain, Go Away!
Not going to lie, we obviously would rather it be sunny and warm, but in the event that we cannot control the weather Gods, this event will happen should it rain. We have tents and umbrellas and an indoor area that will be our saving grace should it downpour. Fingers, toes, even eyes crossed the clouds hold back until 4:02pm. Dress according to the weather!

Line Ups
Avoiding the lineup is always a big question people ask! If you do not like lines than we don’t suggest coming first thing in the morning. This is usually where the morning early bird line forms. However, come as a team, especially if you have a young child with you. One person stands in line, while the other browses around, takes a break, or picks up a delicious treat. If you don’t need to take your stroller home with you that day, it is usually best not to stand in line and skip some of the hustle and bustle! Usually by 2pm (nap time) things slow down till around 3pm. Then from 3-4pm there will be another last minute rush again!

Stock Availability
Don’t panic if the gear you want is not available to take home the day of the event. While we do our best to have as much gear available as possible, we will run out of car seats and strollers at some point during the day. When this happens, you will be able to special order the gear you have chosen and pick up or ship to you at a later date – estimated time of arrival of your special order will be determined at time of purchase.

We can’t wait for September 15th and hope to see all your smiling faces too! If you have any other questions you need answered before our first ever Gear Day, be sure to leave us comment a below or chat with us on Facebook.

Top 5 Single Strollers

“Whether it’s your first baby or your sixth, a single stroller usually means more available trunk space and the easiest-to-maneuver handling in any of the stroller categories. We’ve assembled the five most impressive single strollers for parents looking for everything from the traditional to the most design-savvy stroller.

Are you tall? Expect to have a huge toddler on your hands? Need somthing that’s going to take on Canadian snow like a boss? The Indie might be your new bestie! It’s got big tires (that come with their own compact pump), all-wheel suspension, an adjustable handlebar, extra-wide seat and the sunshade to take on all other sunshades. Assembly is a bit time consuming, but worth it. Ready from birth through 55lbs., it’s both car seat and bassinet compatible. The best part is that the fabric is 100 percent recycled PET (post consumer plastic water bottles).”- Andrea Traynor, Mommy Gearest for Canadian Family Magazine

Crocodile Baby Stores – Why We Chose Bumbleride Strollers

Why we chose Bumbleride Strollers for Crocodile Baby

We are now available at Crocodile Baby with stores in BC, Canada. They recently wrote a great blogpost about why they chose Bumbleride strollers. This is an excerpt from that blogpost.

“We are very picky about what strollers we sell. Every one of them has to have great maneuverability, great durability, and be backed by great after sales service from the manufacturer. We have just added Bumbleride to our list, with the Indie, the Indie twin and, coming soon, the Speed a lovely jogging specialty stroller. Here are several reasons why we have chosen this manufacturer:

The Air is Guaranteed.

Bumbleride is the only stroller company that provides a 1 year warranty on the inner tubes and tires on its strollers.

Green Fabric.

The fabric is made of recycled PET bottles and from bamboo based fabric…

A Lighter Stroller

The Bumbleride Indie is 25% lighter than its “active stroller” competitors. I  know this because I took my trusty Luggage Buddy scale and picked up each of our strollers on display (pictured above). While my device may be off as to the true weight, the relative weights of strollers is the right way to consider the “How heavy is the stroller?” question….

Made in Taiwan

Bumbleride’s factory is in Taiwan, not China. This is not a really big deal but it is nice to know the strollers are made in a smaller, family-owned factory with a real interest in making high quality products….

Getting Even Greener

In early 2016, Bumbleride will launch its new running stroller the “Speed”. Coincident with that, all of their strollers will use fabrics that have drastically reduced water consumption during the production process while improving the colour fastness. The process creates an 84% energy savings which results in 67% less CO2 emissions. How is this done? I understand it is due to the process dyeing the thread before it is made into fabric, much like the Crypton process waterproofs Clek seat fabrics. Is this a big deal?…

Safety and Health

The fabrics used in all Bumbleride stroller are Oeko Tex certified, which means they have been tested for 110 toxic substances and none have been found….”
