Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, November 25, 2008
FREDRICKSBURG, Va.—Strollers have hit specialty boutiques this month from Trends for Kids, a well-known German company founded in 1997.
TFK provides premium class single and double strollers, including innovative and versatile jogging strollers and compact urban strollers for the sporty consumer.
The strollers have a German ergonomic design and are quick-folding designs for easy storage and transport.
|Trend for Kids has brought its strollers to the U.S. from Germany, including this twin stroller.|
The jogging models and twin model feature disc brakes with a brake handle on the handle bar, allowing the parent to slow the stroller while in motion or lock the wheels while parked.
The seats on those models feature a four-position recline and breathable, well-padded material. They have fine tuning adjustments for brake system and wheel alignment; adjustable foot rest (three different positions or horizontal for a sleeping child) and adjustable handle bars for the comfort of parents of all heights
The ergonomic seats on all models, developed together with doctors, feature several support plates which help to absorb shock, encourage a healthy and natural sitting position, and help to ensure a smooth and comfortable ride for the child.
Appropriate from birth, all of TFK’s strollers have the option to attach a bassinet or car seat.
The twin stroller may be used for twins (with two bassinets or two seats) or an infant and a toddler (one bassinet and one seat).
The strollers will be sold through “green” stores as they contain very few chemicals and have PVC free rain covers.
TFK, based outside Munich, Germany, was founded on the idea of involving children in the recreational and sporting activities of the parents. TFK sells its strollers in more than 30 countries, is in the top 5 best selling strollers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, and continues to grow and provide parents with a continually evolving line of strollers and accessories.
