Bambini Prams begun in 2017 with a desire for a pram that would feel the best for them and their new baby Elodie. They wanted a pram with all the modern benefits, but that could also rock to give the old-age sprung pram experience every first time parent dreams of. With none of the rigid pram models available meeting this desire, they developed a vision to bring a unique design of pram to the Australian market. Their prams are engineered with an integrated rocking system; in the case of MILAN this is crafted alongside modern design and functionality; while their YORK model follows the traditional design that never goes out of style. For added value their prams are designed and manufactured in Europe, for the benefit of years of European craftsmanship and style. Finally, each of their prams has been tested to Australian Standards 2088 for your peace of mind. Bambini Prams feel like no other pram to use. Visit their website here.
