Egg strollers are stunning and come in a range of gorgeous colours, but the fun doesn’t stop there! With a range of handy accessories available and ways of mixing up your stroller’s look and functionality, you can make your egg buggy your own.
In this post, we tell you everything you need to know about egg strollers so you can choose the right one for your family, as well as how to customise your stroller and get the most out of it, from tandem strolling to warm and cosy footmuff attachments, your egg pushchair will work the way you want it to.
Egg understands the urge to nurture and protect your precious baby as they fill your heart with overwhelming love from the second they’re born. Creating a safe and comfortable environment for your bundle of joy is at the forefront of this mega brand’s baby travel products, so you can provide a place of love and security for them, even when you’re out and about.
Transport your little one with ease and style with egg strollers. This tried and tested brand serves both the functional and the style-conscious parent. Travelling with a baby has never been so effortless or fashionable with egg products that are intuitively designed and come in an array of stunning colours. It all began with the egg strollers, and the concept behind them comes from non-other than the humble ‘egg’ itself- richly signifying birth, warmth, shelter and sustenance.
The concept behind the egg buggy comes from non-other than the humble ‘egg’ itself- richly signifying birth, warmth, shelter and sustenance. The popular and luxurious black egg2 stroller has soft-touch marl tailoring, smooth curves, infinite lines and excellent design engineering, so you and your baby have a smooth ride and an exceptional experience. The superior egg2 provides maximum comfort for your precious passenger, and the ease of use has become one of the brand’s hallmarks.
The eggZ stroller is compact, lightweight and has an extendable basket that offers great length and depth, making it a great urban pushchair. A unique curved chassis profile invites the very clever z-fold system at the heart of the stroller, perfect for fast transitions on the go. A deceptively simple one-hand process using discrete buttons on the hand-stitched handlebar ends with a small freestanding fold. The handlebar area also houses two convenient hooks for hanging your backpack.
Without the need for a carrycot, the eggZ is suitable from birth with a 3-position recline, and it offers a cocoon-like environment for your baby and a sumptuous seat for toddlers with its soft-touch fabrics and deep padding. A simple one-touch handle recline makes life much easier than the strap recline systems on other strollers, and ease of use is pushed to the max with the ingenious magnetic buckle system on the harness. This stroller is the result of well-thought-out features and practical functionality, all in a small package.
Buying an egg2 bundle is great for getting everything you need for travelling with a baby in one purchase, and egg bundles are renowned for their quality, style, safety and comfort. An example of one of our egg bundles is this egg2 hunter green bundle, where you get the stroller, carrycot, car seat, ISOFIX base, car seat adapters, backpack and footmuff so you have everything you need to create a warm and cost shelter away from home.
To use the famous egg2 stroller from birth, you will need an egg2 carrycot so your precious newborn can be in a lie-flat position for the first 6 months. The egg2 carrycot has a spacious nest and features an ergonomic release lever positioned at the top.
Just like the egg2 seat unit, the carrycot features a ventilation net and viewing window to keep your little cool and their eyes on the world around them. The beautiful soft-lined egg2 carrycot includes a plush mattress, a fully adjustable hood, and a rain cover to protect your baby from the weather.
Egg2 Shell i-Size car seat
The bundles include the egg2 Shell i-Size car seat, which encompasses the same high safety standards, functionality and immense style synonymous with their strollers. The egg car seat provides optimum cushioning for your most precious passenger with an enhanced side-impact protective shell and a memory foam headrest. With the egg Shell i-size infant carrier, travelling on the road with your baby has never been easier with the 3-position handle and easy single-pull secure harness.
The egg i-Size car seats comply with the highest safety regulations and can be used rearward-facing from birth to around 15 months old (40-80cm). In addition, the egg Shell has removable, enhanced inner-body padding (for use from newborn), which provides key support for both the side and upper leg muscles on car journeys until your little one has grown enough not to need the extra cushioning.
This section is where the fun begins. You’ve chosen your egg and picked a gorgeous colour from hunter green and feather to quartz and eclipse, and now it’s time to customise. There are several ways to alter your stroller; first of all, you’ll need to adjust the straps as your little one grows, it might not be the most fun thing to do, but it’s essential for your child’s comfort and safety.
You can also add some gorgeous accessories to your egg stroller, like a fluffy footmuff or a fleece seat liner. Here, we have instructions on customising your stroller, including how to turn it from a single pram to a double.
How to adjust straps on an egg stroller
With the egg2, there’s no more complicated threading the straps through when your baby grows.
- Simply lift up the flap at the back of the seat
- Pinch the mechanism to adjust it up and down smoothly. Easy!
How to put footmuff on an egg stroller
The egg2 footmuff is made from a soft-touch, durable fabric finished beautifully with a plush fabric lining for the ultimate comfort for your baby. Suitable for use with a 5-point safety harness, the footmuff also features a side zip that gives easy access for lifting your baby in and out of the pushchair.
Chilly outside? No problem. Use these instructions to attach a cosy footmuff:
- Remove the safety bumper
- Slide the shoulder pads off the straps
- Undo the straps completely
- Place the footmuff on the seat
- Feed the straps and buckle through the slots on the footmuff
- Re-do the straps so they’re ready to be fastened.
How to turn a single egg stroller into a duo
As well as working beautifully for one little person, the fantastic egg2 stroller has also been designed to grow with your family and offers many solutions for parents of two. Whether you need transport for twins, a baby and a toddler, or even two toddlers, we have you covered.
The egg2 has been built generally taller and wider than the average stroller, making greater space for all six approved tandem configurations. To get started, you’ll need egg2 tandem adapters that simply attach to your stroller to make it a double.
From there, you’ll need the second seat and what you need depends on the age of your two children. You can choose from two seat units, two carrycots, or two car seats or mix and match if your children are different ages and have different needs. The egg2 tandem seats come in a range of colours, including seagrass and diamond black, so you’ll be able to find one that either matches your original egg2 exactly or very closely.
6 egg2 tandem variations
In tandem mode, you can use the adapters for any of the following 6 configurations:
- Upper world-facing seat unit and world-facing lower carrycot
- Upper parent-facing infant car seat (requires multi-car seat adapters)
- Upper parent facing carrycot, lower world facing carrycot
- Tandem parent-facing car seats (requires multi-car seat adapters and lower multi-car seat adapters)
- Upper parent-facing infant car seat (with adapters) lower world-facing carrycot
- Upper world-facing seat unit, lower world-facing tandem seat.
How to get the most out of my egg stroller
Another option is to use an egg Ride on Board, to be used from the age of 2 years old, to free up your seat unit for another baby. The buggy board is great for tired little legs when you’re out and about and don’t want to use a double stroller.
Not everyone likes the idea of a double stroller, or if your oldest child is getting to that age where they aren’t going to need to rest their legs for much longer, an Egg Ride on Board is a great option. It also helps you get even more out of your stroller if you have 3 children. You can have 2 in your tandem stroller and the eldest on the buggy board, perfect.
Whilst your second little one kicks back in their stroller, your older child can catch a ride on the back of the stroller on their slick board. When it’s not in use, simply click it up out of the way. The board is easy to attach to your chassis with the use of connector adapters. The adapters stay on the chassis of your pushchair, with the board clicking on and off when needed.
So there you have everything you need to know about the egg strollers, including what’s included in a bundle and how to customise them to make them work for you; the only thing left is to choose your colour and egg2 accessories!
