Looking for inspiration?

Sometimes I think we have way too many different Buggysnuggle designs & it gets too tricky for customers to choose their favourite! So I’ve been updating our Pinterest boards & thought they could be quite helpful if you’re a bit stuck!

FB FEEDBACK PRIZEHappy Buggysnuggle Customers shows you all sorts of Buggysnuggle designs, both old & new, in lots of different types of pushchair, so this one could be particularly helpful, as could the Buggysnuggles board.

There are boards for Babysnuggles, Dinkysnuggles, Hats (which, incidently, are all half price at the moment!) which will give you a great overview of these products.


I’ve just added a board showing off our fabulous Massive Picnic Rugs (300cm x 145cm), as the daffodils are convinced spring is here!

If you send any of your lovely Buggysnuggling photos in, I will add them to our boards – I love to see them, it makes me very happy! Have fun browsing the boards.

Trust me, it’s a Buggysnuggle

There are a lot of footmuffs or cosytoes to choose from out there. There are a lot of cheap footmuffs too. And yes, a Buggysnuggle footmuff is not cheap. But what I hope lots of Buggysnuggle customers will agree is that they are value for money.

One of the problems with internet shopping is that it’s sometimes difficult to tell the difference in quality, when you’re looking at a flat, cut out photo (& I’m the first to admit, new photography needs to be at the top of my to-do list this year!) For example our Sapphire Stars Fur is so thick & luxurious, but it’s hard to see that from this photo!

So, in an effort to sell the benefits of a Buggysnuggle footmuff to you & convince you that the “cost-per-wear” (as I always tell my other half when I’ve bought something new!) will be unbelievably low, consider this:

It really will be one of the most used nursery items you buy. So if you use your top-of-the-range Fur Buggysnuggle 5 days a week for 3 years, the cost-per-use is as little as 8p and that’s only for 1 child – we know many customers have used theirs for baby no. 2 or 3 too, and then sold them on Ebay! (not great for me I know!) 

FB FEEDBACK PRIZE                                       Lots of happy Buggysnuggle customers

Remember, the bottom half can be used as a liner in warmer weather, so it really is useful 365 days per year.

Also, bear in mind that a Buggysnuggle footmuff makes the scruffiest buggy look like new!

An old favourite

I started The Buggysnuggle Company in 1998 (OMG nearly 18 years ago, that truly makes me feel ancient!) because I’d purchased a Baby Jogger pushchair, which were brand new to the UK market then, & had no footmuff to go in it. In fact, whichever pushchair you bought, the only cosytoes or footmuffs available were horrible. Usually black or grey & made from stiff, harsh fabric.

IMG_9538                                                       The very first Buggysnuggle footmuff

So I designed the Buggysnuggle footmuff – a wanted something soft and snugly; roomy so it would last a long time; with the feel of a blanket rather than a stiff “cage”. It’s been copied often (& badly) & there are many more footmuffs & cosytoes around today to choose from, but I’m still inspired to keep designing beautiful fabrics to introduce new Buggysnuggles each year, secure in the knowledge that lots of happy children & parents remember their Buggysnuggle fondly!

One of the very first Buggysnuggle fabric designs, way back in 1999, was our Green Sheep Buggysnuggle. This proved an instant hit & we soon manufactured it in Navy & Red too. 1998-1999-BROCHURE-1crSHEEP

We still make the Red Sheep Buggysnuggle because customers still love it! In fact, many of our designs keep going for years & years because they prove so popular – the Cow Fur is another one. If they stay in our top 10, then I’ll keep ordering them!

Really, I’d be baaa-rmy to stop! (apologies for terrible joke!!)

10 reasons why a Buggysnuggle footmuff will make your life easier! Honest!

  1. Your baby will be happy, warm & secure in their pushchairPINK_ELEPHANTS_1
  2. You can remove the top half of the Buggysnuggle completely and use the bottom half as a soft seat liner in the summer months (useful 365 days of the year!)BSN106-4sq
  3. Keep teddy or snacks (or even eggs!) handy in the “teddy pocket” WP_ELEPHANT_JAN-16cr
  4. The Buggysnuggle will protect your baby from a light shower, so it won’t be the end of the world if you forget the rain cover (but if you’re looking for fully waterproof, then we have our Explorer range)
  5. The Buggysnuggle can stay in your pushchair even when folded making travelling easier
  6. You can use the top half of your Buggysnuggle as an impromptu blanket
  7. No need to dress your baby up in a thick snowsuit, just a fleece or jacket on top will be fine unless it’s arctic outside
  8. The Buggysnuggle is easy to remove so if you want to lift a sleeping baby & move indoors you can do so without disturbing your baby
  9. Buggysnuggles are very quick & easy to fit & can easily be moved to a different buggy
  10. Buggysnuggles wash & dry quickly & will last for years & multiple children!

Family Festival Fun!

Having kids doesn’t mean the festival fun has to stop, it just has to change a bit! A pushchair with a big basket underneath for all your kit is very useful (actually even if you’re not taking the kids!), and of course it must have a Buggysnuggle for your little one to snuggle up in when they zonk out after a day of running around in the fresh air!FAST ASLEEP IN HER BUGGYSNUGGLE IN THE MUSIC TENT AT ROCK OYSTER FESTIVAL

What with this being the UK, chances are it’ll be blooming freezing and 99% of heat is lost through the head apparently (well that’s what my mum always told me!), so a hat is a must – a little sun dress, jumper & funky hat is a great festival look for kids anyway!! Winking smile Buggysnuggle hats tick all the boxes! LOP200-3

A Buggysnuggle Picnic Rug is a must – honestly, you will love them! Sit on it in the sun, or use it as a shelter when it’s raining – I’ve used them in both ways several times! In fact it’s big enough that you can sit on it & have half of it folded back over your head! It folds up small & can be easily carried… PIC191-5

Finally, to snuggle up in the tent or campervan much later on, a Sofasnuggle is the ultimate festival luxury for kids!  SOFASNUGGLEsThere are loads of festivals aimed at families nowadays:
