Pushchair Trader UK

G-LUXE scores an impressive 4.5 out of 5 stars in this review by UK’s Pushchair Trader.

They love the generous seat size, padded seat liner, hand-operated fold, and included cup holder.

“It is exceptionally lightweight – both in terms of the carry and the push. This would be a perfect public transport pushchair – a combination of the weight, the freestanding chassis and the quick and easy fold would mean a stress free bus or train ride.  I like the recline – super simple to use, and the range of recline positions is good.”

National Multiple Sclerosis Society

A staggering 400,000 Americans live with MS.  This debilitating autoimmune disease affects the brain and spinal cord, resulting in loss of muscle control, vision, balance, and sensations. In recognition of National Multiple Sclerosis Month we are donating to the National MS Society. Our monetary contribution will help people affected by MS through education, support, advocacy and research.

To support on a local level we are participating in several events by providing time, staffing and product donations. On March 1st we participated in the Climb To The Top fundraising event put on by the National MS Society – Greater New England Chapter.  As the official water stop sponsor, we were on hand with a team of UPPAbaby employees to distribute water bottles to all the thirsty climbers. These dedicated walkers climbed over 1,200 steps and 61 floors!
