Stroller Depot

Baby Jogger is not just the name of the company, it is the name of the entire product category. Like Kleenex or Jello, the name Baby Jogger is synonymous with jogging strollers. Why? Because they invented the first jogging stroller more than 20 years ago. Today, they continue to provide many of the safest, most innovative and high quality products to the market. 

Established in 1984 by Phil Baechler, a journalist for a local newspaper and avid runner, Baby Jogger launched its first product called the "Baby Jogger". Constructed of a sleek, lightweight anodized aluminum frame with a Cordura nylon seat and three bicycle tires, the Baby Jogger became the original three-wheeled stroller. Two years later, they introduced the first twin jogging stroller and the category was born.

Today, the Company continues its unique manufacturing process where the strollers are made in a staged assembly process where all components are locked in place during each step of the manufacturing process. In comparison to a low cost assembly line process, the staged process significantly reduces the margin for error, ensuring proper alignment, unbeatable quality and long term durability. Baby Jogger strollers are designed to be extremely lightweight and aerodynamic, allowing air to flow freely through the stroller, reduction in wind drag and ultimately, making them easier to push. 

At Baby Jogger, safety is paramount and each stroller and bicycle trailer is tested to meet or exceed the requirements established by respected independent testing organizations throughout the world. Their patented quick-fold technology and generous features continue to establish Baby Jogger as one of the leaders in jogging strollers.

Baby Jogger Extended History

1984 Baby Jogger Company Founded

Phil Baechler, a local newspaper journalist, establishes The Baby Jogger Company. As Baechler wanted the opportunity to spend time with his then infant son without forsaking his favorite pastime, he began bringing his son along with him in his baby carriage while jogging. He quickly discovered that standard carriages were not made to endure the stress of long distance usage over various surfaces, so he designed a specialized stroller with features more conducive to running. He aptly named it the Baby Jogger.

 

1986 First Double Stroller

Baby Jogger developed the first jogging stroller made for two children called The Twinner. The original Baby Jogger and Twinner models were both designed for serious runners, as the wheels were bolted on and neither had a folding mechanism. Over the next 10 years, various models of strollers and joggers were developed to accommodate different needs in the marketplace, including the Zipper, WalkAbout, FunAbout, Super Jogger, and Super Twinner.

 

1994 Second Generation Strollers Released

The Company released the next generation of joggers, called the Baby Jogger 2 and the Twinner 2. Both strollers were highlighted by a folding feature which required no tools, as well as quick release wheels that were offered in three sizes. These features added a convenient element to the design of the strollers as consumers could now easily fold and store them, making them the best-received of all models thus far.

The City Mini by Baby Jogger has proven to be a superior stroller in the baby specialty industry, counting two Gold Awards to its name in its first year on the market. In April 2008, the City Mini received the highest product honor by the National Parenting Publications Awards, competing with a myriad of other strollers to be selected as the NAPPA Gold Award recipient. The City Mini was also the recipient of the 2008 Mother & Baby Gold Award in November 2008 after vigorous testing by numerous parents and respected baby experts who determined the stroller to be the Gold Winner in the "Lightweight Buggy" category.
