Early June we saw the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge pictured in the Daily Mail with their bespoke Nipper buggy at the Houghton International Horse trials. Since then we have been contacted by a number of publications wanting to know how it started and how Prince William and Kate came to own a bespoke Nipper!
Following on from the original article in the daily mail which pictured the old Navy fabrics on a current V4 black chassis the Royal Correspondent from the Daily Mail Rebecca English got in contact with us here at HQ to find out more about the bespoke buggy.
It was a fantastic article and to see this in both print and online was great exposure for our brand. Unfortunately the incorrect image was used and was not a Nipper however, this was seen pushed by a friend with Kate and Prince George pictured behind. To read the full article from the Daily Mail please click here.
Just this week we have received contact from People Magazine in the USA!! Being huge Royal fans they were eager to find out more about the bespoke buggy the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge had most recently been pictured with! Being a UK based family run company it was incredible to have an overseas publication get in contact with us and want to find out more on the story and our products! We are yet to see a copy of the magazine, however here is a link to the online article- People magazine.
As you can imagine it has been a very exciting time here at Out 'n' About HQ with the knowledge that the bespoke Nipper Single which was created specifically for the young Royals over 18 months ago has been put to use! The local press have also wanted in on the story and have published in the Times & Citizen paper and online about the Royal Nipper! Watch this space for more updates....
With news of the Nipper Single pictured with the young Royals the hype is still building.... To read more about this incredible story please click on the links below:

After much social media coverage of Princess Charlotte and her newest buggy, many blogs and review sites had writtern about the Nipper Single, take a read-http://www.princegeorgepieces.com/#!George-and-Charlotte-at-the-Houghton-International-Horse-Trials/colb/574f91f50cf28b872a24f4ba
It's official the Out 'n' About Nipper has been pictured with the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge!!
it has been just over 18 months since we first received contact from Kensington Palace. The excitement here at Out 'n' About HQ was second to none. As a small family run British company we were thrilled and equally as shocked to have been contacted directly.
A bespoke Nipper was created from Navy fabrics and onto the current V4 black chassis. A carrycot was also required in the same colour way, leaving us hoping the Nipper would be used by Princess Charlotte also.
A family day out at the Houghton International Horse Trials has led to images of the Nipper Single being used by the young Royals. Pictured in the Daily Mail online you can see the Nipper Single sat behind Kate and Prince William can be see pushing the Nipper in a later photo. Click here to see photos.
The Award winning Nipper range has been manufactured for 15 years now, not only ideal for outdoor events such as horse trials and scenic off- road routes they are equally at home and a dream to push around town.

'The Little Nipper Double is so easy to fold by just raising two clips at the side of the stroller and then by pulling two tabs in the seat unit the pram folds down. This stroller really is fabulous and as I said earlier it truly ticks the box of easy to use, for a mum looking for a lightweight twin stroller I would 100% recommend the Little Nipper Double.'

A few of Sarah's favourite things....
@mamawifeyavery has kindly shared her latest blog post with us. When pregnant with her first child all 'celeb' endorsed and apparent 'must haves' were purchased without a second thought. Now realising that not all items are a necessity @mamawifeyavery has listed her top 5 must have items with a little one. The Nipper Single made the cut! Take a look at Sarah's latest blog post here:
The Little Nipper Double has only been available for a few months, however it really is being put through its paces!!
With fantastic feedback received so far, we wanted to share the below blog with you written by both a Mummy and childminder. In this review the Little Nipper Double has been tested in a local zoo, on the bus, through mud, round the shops and whilst feeding the ducks-
'I have been very fortunate to be given the opportunity to road test and review the new Little Nipper double, having known how highly Out N About are spoken about by childminders for their ease of use and durability I was very excited! Having previously used other brands of side by side doubles and tandems I have found this to be my favourite! It was very easy to put together and of course came with a large box which the children loved. Included in the box were the pushchair, a belly bar, raincover and basket, so no needing to buy extras to get you started. I currently use the Little Nipper for two boys aged 17 months and 2 1/2, my 2 1/2 year old is definitely not on the small side, he is very tall but is still comfortable in it, with both children in the Little Nipper is still really easy to push, another bonus is it is very easy to push with one hand when my older child wants to walk. The adjustable height handle means it is suited to varying heights of adult and can be lowered for a child to hold onto also. This model also has EVA wheels so no worrying about punctures when out for the day.
I have taken the Little Nipper to our local zoo, which is very hilly. On the bus, through the mud, round the shops, in lifts and through relatively narrow doorways and so far I haven't come across any issues.
My only negative I have come across so far is that the basket isn't very big but I have found ways around that and it hasn't really caused me an issue. The Little Nipper is easy to fold and fits nicely in the boot of my Ford CMax still leaving space for bags etc. I would recommend this pushchair to anyone looking for a double, carrycots are avaliable if you have younger children too. It would definitely see you through from babies to toddlers.'

The well known nursery website Pushchair Expert arranged for a Little Nipper to be sent to a product tester to review over an 8 month period. Being able to review a buggy over this time allows a true refection of the product and how it fits into every day life. Connie and Hattie loved the Little Nipper and found it was perfect for their lifestyle. Even taking the Little Nipper abroad was a breeze.

We Just LOVE receiving great feedback and sharing this with you! Please see below an email from a Nipper fan :)
'To all the good folks at Out n About,
My wife and I have had a nipper double for a while now, and it is sadly reaching the end of its life, but I just wanted to share with you the great experiences we have had with it. I never email companies either in complaint or commendation, but I feel compelled to write to you to comgratulate you on your excellent product. We bought the Nipper double as we are outdoorsy type people and wanted a buggy that could come with us and our 2 kids on our adventures. We have had some amazing adventures, both on and off road, and the fact that the nd can take both kids but be pushed one handed is amazing.
The wheels can handle dirt and mid without problem and we have had great times pushing pulling and squelching through muddy puddles and fields.
I attach a couple of photos for you to do with whatever you wish, but I think it highlights how great your product has been.
You have helped us inspire our kids to love the great outdoors and for that we thank you.
Keep up the good work!'

Mother&Baby Big Test on 3-wheelers
Mother&Baby have road tested 6 of the top 3-wheeler buggies to find out which one suited them best, giving the Out'n'About Nipper Single an overall winning score of 5 out of 5.
All three testers gave top scores to the Out'n'About Nipper Single. The editors verdict said,
"Larger wheels and excellent suspension make this a proper off-roader, but with the refinement needed for about town use. It's robust and comfortable, yet not too heavy. An outstanding all-round performance meant that all three of our reviewers rated this is their favourite."
Jason Goodwin, one of the reviewers on the panel, commented, "I love this! It's a solid, comfortable ride that's suitable for all terrains. It steers like a dream too. It was brilliant when Freddie's mum took him over wet and bumpy fields - we've never seen him so content and comfortable."

Runner and new mum Katie says buying a running buggy has been great
Trendy parenting magazine Gurgle has featured the Nipper Sport in the lifestyle section of the November issue. Mums were asked how they got back into shape after being pregnant.
Katie, 34, mum to Rosie seven months spoke about running during and after pregnancy.
â€śIt was after having Rosie that I realised how much I missed it and thought about how much running defined me as a person. It was a big part of my life and I especially missed the adrenalin rush I got - not to mention the bonus of burning 600 calories a day. When I did start running again I bought a running buggy (pictured with Outâ€™nâ€™About Nipper Sport) which has been great. Rosieâ€™s seven months now and Iâ€™m enjoying running just as much as before. Just because youâ€™ve had a baby doesnâ€™t mean you should give up on who you once wereâ€ť
Gurgle, October/November 2012
The long awaited carry cot for the Nipper 360 Single is now in stock !
It has finally arrived ! The new Nipper carry cot easily clicks onto the buggy - simply remove the bumper bar and click the adapters into the fixing holes.
Designer Andy Fensom said "Customers have been asking for a carry cot for a number of years now. We wanted to make sure that what we produced was feature packed and practical. The result is a carry cot that is stylish, easy to handle, comfortable for the child and very easy to fit on the buggy. This makes the award winning Nipper 360 Single even more newborn friendly."

'This Week Iâ€™m Loving Outâ€™nâ€™About Nipper 360'
The search for a cool buggy that has style AND substance is over! The Out'n'About NipperÂ 360Â not only looks great, but it can cope with high streets AND off-roading!Â My love affair started when I chased a woman down the road to ask for details ofÂ her push-chair (sorry if that was you!)Â Suitable from newborn, the 360 has amazing maneuverability down to itsÂ namesake front wheel that can swivel 360 or be locked in position. Akiraâ€™s soÂ excited to go in it, largely because itâ€™s so comfy with its lovely padded seat andÂ great suspension on the back tyres. With its five point harness and five options forÂ seat position, Akira now complains when I get him OUT! Who knew!? At 5ft 8"Â mummyâ€™s loving the height adjustable handle, and itâ€™s deceptively light with itsÂ aluminum frame.Â
And the proof that itâ€™s a desirable set of wheels? Now mums chase ME down theÂ road to ask about it!Â What goes around, comes around! ;-)
