This seems to be a natural transition for a company who has been manufacturing European town bicycles since the Forties.
Many companies have worked out that a good way to diversify is to tap into the lucrative baby and child market, and that’s
exactly what Kronan
have done with the release of high quality,
Swedish-designed prams. The first on the market will be the Duovagn –
the international launch was at our very own Life In Style
I think they’re quite Emmaljunga-esque and will definitely appeal to
those parents looking for luxury at the high end of the pram
market. It has a comforting familiarity about its styling – European,
four-wheeled and with both layback seat and bassinette.
The seat attachment features a footrest and bumper bar and comes in
chic plain colours of red, black and brown. The
large shopping basket should accomodate quite a few purchases rather
Kronan were concerned with all the extras parents must shell out for on top of the cost of purchasing a pram. For
reason the Duovagn comes complete with bassinette and seat attachments,
along with a nappy bag and a footmuff tailored especially
to fit the pram, all for the RRP of $1799.
It may have been designed with snow drifts in mind, but this pram
can handle the harsh Australian sun with an innovative sunshade built
into the hood of the seat unit. Take it out at dusk and its reflective
strips will make it known to drivers that you’re crossing the
road. Go for luxury with the stylish, clean-lined and numberplated
Melbournites can meet the Duovagn at the Kronan shop in Greville St, Prahran –
shop details can be found at the Kronan Cycles Australian site.
