A stroller is one of the most important items of baby gear you’ll buy and you need to rely on it to safely transport your little one when you are out and about. If you’re in need of some help on what pram to purchase, take a peek at what our local celeb moms are choosing to cart their precious cargo around town.
Gail Mabalane: Mima Xari
Actress and model Gail Mabalane pushed her daughter Zoe in a Mima Xari stroller when she was still a baby. This style of Mima (R19 999) can easily switch from a carrycot to a seat unit once your baby is six months old or can sit unaided.
Radio and TV personality Pabi Moloi is also a fan of the Mima for her baby son.
#KeNako He arrived a month ago. He is awe inspiring, beautiful and has made the world a lot brighter. I did not know God until looking into my own child’s eyes. Could not bring myself to share earlier… But now you know! Let the rest of our amazing lives begin. ❤️??? #MothonyanaOFihlile #KeMamaWaMotho #ImHisMama #LekholokoeLeLetle #mimafamily
DJ Zinhle: Stokke Xplory and Babyzen Yoyo
In the cold months, DJ Zinhle used a Stokke Xplory (from R19 999), which has a winter kit, to take her daughter, Kairo, for a stroll. This pram is height adjustable, so you can promote interaction and eye contact while exploring the world together.
When travelling around the country, DJ Zinhle pushes Kairo in the Babyzen Yoyo, which goes for R13 998.
Letshego Zulu: Thule Urban Glide
It’s no surprise that celebrity fitness guru Letshego Zulu chose a Thule Urban Glide (R9 000) for her daughter, Lelethu. This is an all-round sports stroller with a sleek and lightweight design, making it perfect for active moms like Letshego.
Jo-Ann Strauss: Doona
Model and TV personality Jo-Ann Strauss loves Doona (R6 000) and we don’t blame her. It acts as both a car seat and a stroller. And there are no attachments necessary. Just pull down the folded stroller wheels to start your journey outdoors.
Celebrity chef and mom of three kids Siba has an amazing pram that is able to carry all her three kids. Unfortunately, we don’t know the brand of this stroller and how much it retails for.
Lee-Ann Liebenberg: Bugaboo, Orbit, Stokke, Maclaren Juicy Couture and Quinny
Model Lee-ann Liebenberg says one can never be too prepared when it comes to strollers, so she’s got five: Bugaboo, Orbit, Stokke, Maclaren Juicy Couture and Quinny.
