Ever since babies have been born, parents have looked for a convenient way of traveling with their children. From slings to pouches, babies have been transported in a number of ways.The idea of a baby stroller first came into being with a man named William Kent. He was a garden architect in England who had become very well known for his work. In 1733, the Duke of Devonshire asked Kent to build a means of transportation that would amuse his children. Kent obliged by constructing a shell shaped basket on wheels that the children could sit in. This was richly decorated and meant to be pulled by a goat or small pony. Kent’s idea caught on and soon other royal family owned similar contraptions.In 1840, the baby carriage became extremely popular. Queen Victoria bought three carriages from Hitchings Baby Store. If you wanted to be part of high society, you had to own a baby carriage. The carriages of those days were much different than today. They were built of wood or wicker and held together by expensive brass joints. These were sometimes fancy and became heavily ornamented works of art. Models were also named after royalty. Princess and Duchess were popular names, as well as Balmoral and Windsor.(wikipedia.org)
