Kids on Board

April 22, 2015

I've been pondering for a while my next move with Mundo. On a regular occurrence I end up an extra small person excited to come along for a ride. For short trips they are fine sitting in the special piece of wood and holding on. But I'd like a more permanent user friendly solution. 

Monkey bars from Yuba seem to me to be a great solution, however with these unavailable in NZ I'm left shipping them in from the U.S. or Australia.  

 Monkey bars can even fit around the baby seat so that I can still use that for the younger kids. But they make it possible for one or two kids to sit in front while still being enclosed and providing them with lots of room to hold on. 

So this has got me thinking. There must be a way I can make them. Or find another reliable DIY method of containing a couple of kids on the back of the bike. 

So I've done some searching with Google and found a few cool pictures along the way. Check out this article for a few great adaptions.

These two are a couple of my favourites. 

   
 

So onwards with the thinking, pondering and gathering of ideas. I'm playing with ideas of using different materials. And working out how to manipulate those materials. But more on that in another post . . .

Our Recyclable Packaging + Waste Management

October 29, 2021

Let's get down to the nitty gritty of fashion retail! It's incredibly common to find that all clothing items you buy in fashion stores are at some point individually wrapped in soft plastics. Clothes are taken out of these packages for display in stores. But the waste is out the back, building up. Since early 2018, we've requested our brands send us stock free of plastic. Many of our brands have been enthusiastically on board with our decision, and we are continuing to push for further change.
