Yeah, sorry. Non-stroller related travel kept me from my Mutsy duties.
I see that Danielle at Celebrity Babies has taken note of Crown Prince Haakon's Mutsy Week festivities, so thanks for the shoutout [and, of course, for being the heralds for such royal tidings in the first place]. But I am a little shocked, shocked by the prices she mentions--over $1,600 US, or as we say in the biz, 1.8 Bugaboo Units--for US delivery of a Mutsy Urban Rider. Even if you don't get two carrycots, though, the delivered price from Pramsonline.com is almost $1,300.
Yow, you'd have to be the heir to the throne of a random Nordic country to afford Mutsys at those prices.
Considering that they--and other UK stores likeTwo Left Feet--run out of Mutsy to sell you and it's still only ¬£520 ($US950), that is some expensive shipping. And we haven't even asked about VAT, which is another ¬£100 ($182) or so off.
Considering you used to have to go far away to a country where you don't speak the language to overpay like that, I guess what you're really buying is time and convenience and avoiding the annoying hassles of shopping trips to Europe. And can you really ever put a price on that?
