British Pram...

I'm freaking out right now. The following Pram just sold on ebay for $60.00. I can hardly believe it. My only guess is that the seller said it was a pick up item only which leaves most without a chance. Although this isn't a Silver Cross, it's beautiful! Can you imagine? Baby with a bonnet stolling along.


I'm not even going to talk about the pricing on these guys. The one above is listed at Harrods to throw you a bone. But aren't they so beautiful? My heart has been racing just as I browse around at the different options out there. If these at all interest you but you gag at the thought of paying $3,000 for one of these (okay, I said it), read this story. I guess there is hope to find one.

Sweetie - I have one of these in my attic - just like the one that Prince William rode around in - Little Kent was a prince in his own right! You are welcome to use it but it too will be a pick-up item - that way I will get to see you - Love to you and Andrew - Charlotte

Hi there;

I'm a collector of vintage prams & baby carriages (I love them too! :) ...Looking up pics of them just now, is how I came accross this site/posting!

Keep looking for them (Craigslist, Kijiji, eBay, yard sales ~ they are out there!) Keep in mind, you can find vintage prams in very good condition that are priced more affordable for most of us. & remember to take care of them, so they can be passed down to future generations (or hold their value, if you want to resell when you are finished with them)... don't leave them out in the sun, when you are finished your walk, as the hood & aprons will fade, don't put the hoods up & down, in cold/freezing temps, as the vinyl can crack, & don't leave them outside, as the chrome will rust in damp weather.

It's so nice to hear there are lots of people who still admire these (I realize there are also alot that don't care for them), but if they appeal to you, they are wonderful to have, as a second 'baby vehcile' to walk around your own neighbourhood with! Such a dream to push! (I had a vintage Gendron baby carriage, I bought second hand, for my boys, when they were infants), & I've never parted with it. I just started collecting them a few years ago (my boys are both teens now), & before our last move, I babysat, & took the little girl out in one 2ce, every day, & we loved it!

Hope to see more of this generation enjoying these heirloom peices!

Take care :)

As a collector, I can tell you the white pram at the top of the page is none other than a late 1980's Emmaljunga Ringo. I have one just like it in mint green. They are gorgeous prams. The $60 price was a steal - I paid $250 for mine, which included the matching bassinet, seat enclosure, and boot.

hi, I found a emmaljunga pram aside a dumpster... I think its a early '90's Ringo navy blue with light blue interior. I couldn't let it go to dump but don't know what to do with it. would be willing to donate to a good home where it will be appreciated. any suggestions. Thanks Carah
