History

In 1994 Max Barenbrug graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven with double honors in two subjects: mobility (for his double Dutch city bike) and leisure (for his Bugaboo stroller).

Eduard Zanen, an entrepreneur, became involved and in 1996 Eduard did the first investment in the Bugaboo stroller. At that time Max and Eduard set up Bugaboo as a company. In 1999 the first Bugaboo – the Bugaboo Classic – appeared on the streets of Holland. In 2001 the Bugaboo Frog was launched in the United Kingdom and in 2003 in the United States. 2004 was the year where the Limited Edition Bugaboo By Bas Kosters was introduced. In 2005 Bugaboo launched the Bugaboo Gecko and the Bugaboo Cameleon. In 2007 the Bugaboo Bee was added to the product family.
