The first baby carriage, which is called “buggy” in England, was created in 1733 by a famous landscape designer William Kent.
But only in 1840 the buggy fashion started.
The Queen Victoria, who was a mother of nine children, wanted to walk with her kids along the park personally and needed the buggy for the princes.
The first carriages were personalized and considered to belong to the richest class.
The most popular model was called Windsor.
But it was not comfortable at all; it was very high and unstable, it had no handles and it had to be pulled all the time.
In 1877 the first baby carriage company was founded in Great Britain. It had the name “Silver Cross”
Only after 1920 in USA some models of carriages appeared which had plastic and rubber parts instead of wooden and braided parts.
The first carriages were presented to the single moms by the charity organizations.
