Bugaboo International B.V. is a Dutch design company that makes mobility products such as pushchairs for infants and toddlers and luggage systems. Its products are available in 50 countries. Bugaboo employs over 1,200 people, working at headquarters in Amsterdam, The Netherlands or in one of the offices in the UK, Germany, Sweden, Italy, Spain, United States, France, Australia, South Korea, Japan, Shanghai China and in the assembly plant in Xiamen, China.
Bugaboo was founded in 1996 by Max Barenbrug and his then brother-in-law, Eduard Zanen, an entrepreneur and doctor, following an investment by Zanen. Barenbrug started the concept for Bugaboo as a graduation project two years earlier when he was studying at the Design Academy Eindhoven.
The first Bugaboo, the "Bugaboo Classic", was launched in Holland in 1999. In 2001, the "Bugaboo Frog" was launched in the United Kingdom and in 2002 in the United States, popularized by its appearance in an episode of the hit TV show Sex and the City.
In 2012, Bugaboo is listed as a partner of the (RED) campaign, together with other brands such as Penfolds, Belvedere and Apple Inc. The campaign's mission is to prevent the transmission of the HIV virus from mother to child by 2015 (the campaign's byline is "Fighting For An AIDS Free Generation").
