Yes, it's true, America saved Europe's butt in WWII; if it weren't for us*, they'd be speaking German in Holland right now.**
And how do they repay us? By leaving the cupholders off their irresistable strollers? Danke schoen, indeed.***
Never fear, because while you might think all's been quiet on the Bugaboo cupholder front, it turns out valiant American drinkers of Venti mochalattes, Diet Cokes, and even Alaskan Amber beer, have been hard at work, preserving our American Way of
Life insisting on taking our beverages with us when we head out with the stroller.
First off, DT reader Marcia suggests the Milan Stroller Cup Holder Attachment Accessory, which has two seatback-style pockets as well as two fabric cup holders. Looks like an awful lot of solution to me, but at least it's thin and decently designed.
And second, from Seattle DT reader/researcher Jonathan comes the SKY Chair solution [above]:
ThisGod Bless America.
apparatus is easily attached to the Frog by wrapping the straps three
times around the handle before looping the holder through the loop at
the end of the straps. The loops are dressed, and voila a drink holder that looks like it came directly from the Netherlands. For a longer drink holder, one could wrap the straps twice around the handle...This will fit any standard size latte cup, soda bottle, etc. As this was a brainstorm session, the only thing I have in the house to demonstrate the holder is said Alaska Amber. Bear in mind that responsible daddy types never drink and Bugaboo at the same time.

* I'm told that Canada, not the US, liberated Holland.
** I'm also reminded that Dutch sounds like German spoken by an American--or a Canadian, for that matter.
*** I don't need reminding that New York was founded by the Dutch, so I will cut them a lot of slack.
