Have you ever thought about selling up, packing up all of your worldly belongings and hitting the road? This is exactly what Jennifer and her husband decided to do along with their young son. With a love of travel in common a motor home was purchased and the journey begun.
Travelling at the best of times with a little one (or 2 or 3 or 4...) can be challenging ensuring you have packed everything you need. From the small essentials to nappies, wipes & food to the larger essentials such as a carseat and buggy. These items maybe required to fit in with your lifestyle, from fitting in the car boot (or in this case a motor home) to being reliable and handling the terrain you may face.
Travel as they grow is a blog Jennifer and her husband have put together to document their travels and review items they are using on the way. The buggy of choice to take on their travels was the Nipper Single V4, which Jennifer has reviewed- 'I really love its ability to be versatile in all terrains, and how smooth it is to push. You never need to put much effort in to get from A to B, and that’s exactly what you need as a parent!' You can read the full review here.
Hints & tips from 53 weeks off
'Running with a baby reminds me of my ultramarathon training when things weren't as simple as putting my running kit on and leaving for a run. Running with a baby means that I need to pack some extras, and even more stuff for our long runs while half-marathon training.'
Running has always been a sport/ past time/ hobby for many, however in the past few years has become more popular than ever with families. Whether partaking in a park run, organised group or individually, taking your little one(s) along in their buggy there is no excuse not to get out & about (excuse the pun)!
53 weeks off is a blog written by a mum who is enjoying maternity leave and keeping us up to date with activities such as running, yoga and getting creative. The latest blog post is all about running with a buggy. Celina chose the Nipper Sport for her half marathon training as well as getting off road and taking scenic walks through the peak district.
Click here to read all the hints and tips from 53 weeks off when out running with a buggy. From packing for any situation from nappy changes to feeds, to planning routes and benefits of the Nipper Sport.
'I love it when things just work. Things that are easy to use, of good quality and do what they are supposed to do make my day. Since I've had a little one this has become even more of a priority and I have to say the Out 'n' About Nipper V4 buggy has been one of my top baby purchases.'
We just love receiving reviews and blog posts on the Nipper range. A big thank you to Northern Mama UK for sharing her latest blog on the Nipper Single with us. It is always so fantastic to hear how loved the Nipper is and how it can make everyday life with little one(s) just that little bit easier!

Email Review- 17/11/16
Dear Sir/Madam, It has taken me years to send this message and I hope that most of the employees, who manufactured my double buggy, back around in 2010, are still with you there. This is to say a loud THANK YOU for the excellent "machine" you produced back then (I trust it is still the case now). By the time I got my "out n about nipper 360 double buggy" I had tried (and almost destroyed) - thanks to 3 kids under 2yrs- a Phil& Ted, Jane and Mc Laren buggies. The freedom, reliability and mobility that I experienced with the "nipper 360" was amazing. I did not have a car back then, but your buggy allow me to move around supermarkets, buses, libraries, churches, halls, elevators, shopping malls. sound and safe in all weather. with my 3 little ones who were growing and getting heavier. From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU. You made a huge impact in my life. it was not a trivial contribution. so please keep making a difference to desperate mothers of young children. like I once was ( probably I still am!).
We have received a new blog post from Easy Peazy Family Breaks a family run company who specialise in trips, adventures and where to stay all over Ireland.
Getting out and exploring the gorgeous Irish scenery both urban and rural, this family required a buggy that would allow them to explore and get out and about (excuse the pun) with their little one in tow. The Nipper has well and truly fit their needs whether they are walking the Irish countryside, over rough terrain in the woods or visiting local shops the Nipper Single was exactly what they wanted.

Top Marks for the Little Nipper Double...!!
The 4 wheeled side-by-side buggy in the Nipper range has taken the market by storm since it's release in November 2015. With outstanding reviews from blogger's, parents and now a top score from Pushchair Expert.
Receiving a fantastic 5 out of 5 stars the Little Nipper Double really does tick all the boxes when looking for a double buggy!
'This beautifully simple, compact side by side double can offer parents a multitude of travel solutions without compromising on practicality. It seems to cover every eventuality whether you are a family with twins or have children of different ages. It's a simple yet comfortable pushchair with lots to offer. The EVA wheels combined with the light 11kg chassis means it can turn on a sixpence not to mention the incredibly effortless fold.
If you're looking for a no-full, reliable, double pushchair covering all eventualities then you need look no further than the Out'n'About Little Nipper Double.'

Wanting to find out which double buggy is best for you and your lifestyle between the Double Nipper & Little Nipper Double? To help you with your decision take a look at the latest review from 9 months & forever- Winstanleys Pramworld on the Little Nipper Double:
'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.'

Triple Guinness World Record Holder and former International Slalom Canoeist Helen Barnes has traded her paddle for a Nipper Sport in preparation for the 2016 London Marathon.
Helen Barnes was 16 when she first took up canoeing and hung up her paddle in 2012 with 3 Guinness World Records and being a reserve in the London 2012 Olympics. With Canoeing being an upper body workout, Helen is now taking on the challenge of putting her legs to the test and training for the London Marathon. With a little one in tow Helen is using the Nipper Sport as part of her training. To find out more about Helen please visit her website-www.helsbarnes.co.uk

Helen has shared her review of the Nipper Sport, please see below what Helen has to say:
'So, new year, new challenge! After 25 years as a paddler and having never really used my legs for anything remotely sporty, I've decided to attempt the London marathon!
It's suddenly all getting a bit real...I have my entry confirmed, my 'Just Giving' page set up (NSPCC) and 16 weeks of training to get me there....
As a mummy of 2 young children, juggling training with child care could be difficult. However, thanks to OUTNABOUT, whilst my eldest, Max (4) is at school, I'll be able to take Oliver (2) out with me.... They have provided me with a 'Nipper Sport', one of the best running buggies on the market. Both myself and little Ollie absolutely love it.....and this is why:
* It looks amazing - In striking red, with a sleek black chassis and matching black wheel rims, it's incredibly eye catching.
* It's a pleasure to run with - It's lightweight (9.8kg), yet solid, with a great padded adjustable handle bar. Having a large, fixed front wheel, it tracks brilliantly. It's easy to forget you're actually pushing a child....it's effortless!
* Comfy and safe - With large pneumatic tyres and a rear suspension, it's a smooth ride even on a bumpy route. The seat liner is well padded and has a great fitting 5 point safety harness. It has various seating positions and plenty of room for the child. Comes complete with rain cover that's quick and easy to add in a hurry over the huge sun canopy, which incidentally offers complete shade on those rare brighter days! Having a second brake located on the handle bar, along with a wrist strap, simply adds peace of mind, especially when running down steep gradients.
* It's simple to put together - took a matter of minutes using the easy to follow instructions. The wheels are quick release and once the frame is folded down, it's impressively compact.
In my opinion, it's the best running buggy out there for long distance training. I have a regular buggy for everyday use, as the locked front wheel does make it slightly tricky around shops, etc, but for a buggy to take out for runs, I would highly recommend you try a NIPPER SPORT.'

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!'

The Nipper Sport V4 receives Silver from both the Men's & Women's Running Magazine Awards!
The new V4 range has only been available for a number of weeks, however the V4 sport has won 2 Silver Awards!!
Both the Men's & Womens Running Magazines have awarded the Nipper Sport Silver in the category Best Running Buggy/Pram in this years awards!!

Pushchair Trader have recently reviewed the Nipper Sport V3 and awarded it 4 stars out of 5! The Nipper Sport is the lightest buggy on the market today. With large 16" wheels, handle bar mounted brake lever and rear suspension it is the ideal buggy for jogging.
'If you're looking for a pushchair that will allow you to explore both on road and off, then the Nipper Sport could be the one for you. There are lots of great features, such as the large pneumatic wheels, the generous hood and the padded seat liner for extra comfort.
The Nipper Sport is a versatile set of wheels, suitable for daily use around the town, heading out to explore rough terrain and even for jogging. The fixed front wheel means it can handle pretty much anything – if you're used to a swivel front wheel though, this may take a while to get used to. The handbrake is perfect for extra control when off road or tackling a steep slope. I'm also a fan of the gated bumper bar to make access to the seat much easier.
Overall, I like this set of wheels. The suspension and large wheels make for a smooth ride on any terrain, and the seat is large and comfortable. And, at Ł299.95, it's great value too. If I were planning a lot of off road adventures (or taking up jogging!) then the Nipper Sport would definitely be on my short list.'

Pushchair Trader have also awarded the Nipper Double V3 4.5 stars out of 5!! You can view the full review here- http://www.pushchairtrader.co.uk/en/pushchair-reviews/out-n-about-nipper-v3-double-review/
Don't forget the Nipper Double is now compatible with bespoke carrycot's. Check out the shop section for more information.
'The Out‘n’About Nipper V3 Double is a bit of a hidden gem, perhaps overlooked slightly by those looking for the convenience of an umbrella fold, or maybe someone whose head has been turned by something with a higher price tag.
But let me tell you this, the Out‘n’About Nipper V3 Double would rate highly in either of those camps; it’s as lightweight as an umbrella fold, but significantly more sturdy and practical. It’s got plenty of features worth shouting about, and when combined with carrycots makes a great sibling, or even twin option. With a high weight capacity, good sized seats and realistic price tag it’ll also give you excellent value for money.
This latest version features a few tweaks which make it even more desirable than it always was, and it’s definitely one to look at if you’re looking for a fully loaded double, especially if you plan to venture of the beaten track.'

Reviews can help assist any parent when looking for the perfect buggy. Here at Out 'n' About we are thrilled to have received 4.5 stars out of 5 in Pushchair Trader's recent review of the Nipper Single V3.
'On the face of it, I like the added features in this version of the Out‘n’About Nipper. It only enhances what is already a great product.
There is one thing that I really think would have me banging on the door of Out‘n’About HQ wanting a new version for myself, and that is the new colours. So what if the structural upgrades aren’t major, that’s a good thing, because we loved the Nipper just the way it was... BUT what I also love is choice and pretty things, and we shouldn’t have to compromise on that just because we want something to do a dirty off-road job.
With the new Out‘n’About Nipper 360 V3 you get all the great Nipper functionality, with a host of brand spanking new Nipper flavours. Can’t say better than that.'

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."
Setting a record for the first win with a buggy at Nonsuch Parkrun

Even pushing a buggy around the waterlogged course Kevin managed to cross the line first in a remarkable time of 18:17, setting a record for the first win with a buggy at Nonsuch Parkrun.
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

Nipper Double is reviewers favourite !!!
Mother&Baby featured the Outâ€™nâ€™About Nipper Double as one of 6 buggies put through their BIG TEST on Doubles. Reviewers loved the spacious and comfortable seats and said it feels remarkably light to push for a double, even over rough ground.
Both Zoe and Michael marked the Nipper Double as their personal favourite. â€śThe steering is a dream.â€ť â€śI really like this - both for style/looks and comfort and usability.â€ť â€śThis was so light to push - it went like a dream across bumpy fields. Itâ€™s quick to fold down flat and is easy to store.â€ť

'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! ;-)
See the published review at:
"An exceptional 3-wheeler that's comfortable, easy to push, and built to handle all terrain."
MadeForMums has the best independent reviews of parenting products around, with rigorous real-life testing and lots of behind-the-scenes research taking place. We've spent years in the pregnancy and parenting industry so understand what to ask, can spot what's special and know how to cut through the marketing hype and get the real answers.
The Out'n'About Nipper 360 single is a sleek, stylish, durable and hard-working 3-wheeler buggy that will take you from newborn to 4 year old with comfort and ease.
Out'n'About prides itself on being the UK's leading distributor of all terrain baby gear and kit that will let outdoor-loving parents keep loving the outdoors once they have a baby. They're the sole UK importers for leading brands such as Phil & Teds and Mountain Buggy.
The Out'n'About Nipper 360 single is definitely an all terrain 3-wheeler. It easily tackles the toughest of terrains with its pneumatic tyres and rear suspension. And while it's definitely built for all-terrain, it handles urban terrain just as well, if not better. You almost feel like the pushchair is floating on clouds with the pneumatic tyres - a shopping trip with the Out 'n' About Nipper 360 single a very pleasant undertaking!
WHAT WE LOVE
A friend of mine has the Out'n'About Nipper 360 single pushchair and I have been eager to test one so my expectations were high when I finally got the opportunity. The Out'n'AboutNipper 360 does not disappoint!
There's a lot to love about the Out'n'About Nipper 360 single. For starters, assembly is a doddle. An easy click of the wheels and a quick flip of the handle allow you to get going quickly. The seat reclines fully and has mesh ventilation panels on the back and sides, which makes it very climate controllable. The handle is padded with a thick foam layer so long walks seem like a stroll around the block. A pad for the seat can be added for extra comfort and warmth for your child and the 5-point harness is secure and sturdy.
We loved the storage pockets located all over the hood, which are fabulous for storing your mobile, a purse, toys or even nappies.

Good for: Pretty much everything !
Both nipper single and double models were reviewed by Parentdish, the online parenting experts! The review read:
One kid or two, the nipper is our top pick among ATPs. Both the single and double versions are pleasingly lightweight, a doddle to push, and offer good levels of comfort for babies and toddlers alike, thanks to excellent suspension and supportive reclinable seats.
The double is especially impressive - pushing two children over uneven ground is not an easy task but the Nipper makes light work of it and is a fantastic all rounder for parents with a baby and toddler or twins.
Good for: Pretty much everything!
