So, I’m totally obsessed with Maclaren strollers in case you all didn’t know. My obsession started when I saw their Techno XT in an issue of Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine. It was the beginning of my love affair with this totally line of high end but functional stroller company. Most people window shop for clothes, cars and jewelry. Well, I enjoy window shopping for Maclaren strollers. I’m still waiting on the day when I can afford one of my dream strollers and hopefully Moo won’t be too big to ride in it.
Anyways, you can imagine my excitement and glee when I discoverd that The Beatles chose Maclaren to help bring their Yellow Submarine to life in the form of a totally awesome looking buggy.
For those of you who don’t know the Yellow Submarine was an animated film based on music by The Beatles. Pepperland, a musical paradise under the ocean, falls under a sneak attack from Blue Meanies. Blue Meanies hate all things music and decide to seal the band in a music proof bubble while turning Pepperland residents into statues and sucking away all of Pepperland’s color. Thus it’s up to Lord Mayor and sailor Old Fred to find the Yellow Submarine to save Pepperland. The Yellow Submarine is manned and operated by none other than Ringo, John, Paul and George-The Beatles. And thus the quest to rescue Pepperland begins.
Maclaren has created a buggy that evokes ‘the timeless appeal of The Beatles for a new generation of Fab Four fans’ and is ‘styled to reflect the iconic artwork and feel of The Beatles Yellow Submarine.’
“The Beatles came to Maclaren because they were convinced our design aesthetic would create the perfect embodiment of their vision,” Carolyn Komminsk, Head Designer for Maclaren said. “We look forward to using this addition to our product line to reach a new generation of parents and children.”
