  • In 1733, The English Architect, William Kent, invented the first drawn baby carriage.

  • In the later years, soon the first shell-shaped basket attached with wheels was discovered. It was low to the ground to be pulled easily by the small animals.

  • These carriage names were called “perambulators” or “pram” as William Kent made them with wood, wicker, and heavy metals.

  • The first lightweight stroller was made by Owen Maclaren in the 1900s from aircraft aluminium, with the help of Maclaren, one of the best companies in England till now for the best baby strollers.
