It all began in 1965 when Owen Maclaren designed and patented his prototype Baby Buggy -- the B-01. The iconic blue and white stripes and aluminium frame imparts a vintage style that is still hugely popular and modern today. The revolutionary lightweight, 3D fold design continues to be an important and timeless prototype for the industry.
A former test pilot and aeronautical designer, Owen Maclaren started manufacturing the iconic B01 buggy in the converted stables of his restored medieval farmhouse, Arnold House, in the village of Barby, Northamptonshire in England in 1967.
Based on Maclaren's knowledge as a retired aeronautical engineer and grandfather, the buggy had to be durable, safe, and lightweight. With a combination of modern materials like tubular aluminium, a durable structure that comfortably carries even a fairly large child, and 3D folding mechanism, the buggy weighed just 3kg/6lbs and would fit into the same amount of space as an umbrella. The revolutionary design liberated parents from the bulky pram and quickly became an object of design and desire.
Today’s Maclaren Buggys are descendants of the B-01 - from the lightweight frame, durable fabric, and 5 second one-hand fold -- to the above-industry standard safety features and innovative style. Safety is the most important consideration for Maclaren who have led the industry with the first 5-point safety harness, linked brakes and a fortified frame.
Proving their quality and durability, all Maclaren Buggys are now eligible for a unique Sovereign Lifetime Warranty. Parents simply register at maclarenbaby.com.
