“Four products manufactured by well-known baby products brand Childcare have been ranked the best and safest on the market by the independent consumer rights organisation Consumer New Zealand.
In April the not-for-profit organisation’s Consumer Magazine conducted a rigorous safety and durability review of a number of double baby strollers and buggies currently on the market in NZ.
Childcare ‘s Two-Up stroller ranked number one, in terms of safety, durability and practicality, while Childcare’s Twin Rover XT came in close behind with the magazine recommending it as an option consumers should consider buying.
The magazine said: “The Childcare Two- Up stroller passed all our safety tests and durability tests – and is reasonably priced.”
Childcare’s Galaxy GL and Childcare’s 4 in 1 portacots were among those tested and both achieved a highly recommended ranking by the magazine, in terms of safety and ease of use.
“The Childcare Galaxy GL model passed all the safety checks,” the magazine states.
“It’s also light weight and reasonably priced.”
The Childcare range is a highly trusted and regarded brand in Australia so it’s great that the range has received the same accolade here
Particularly, mother’s need the reassurance that the items they are buying are safe.
The Childcare range is stocked in leading baby retail outlets nationwide.
