Perhaps, when you encounter the term pram as you go shopping for some equipments for your baby or perhaps you just heard it from someone or from an advertisement, you also get the same confused reaction that is felt by store sellers of baby materials. Buggy or pushchair are the terms that are being used in United Kingdom to refer to prams. A different set of terms are being used in the United States to refer to prams cause instead of using the terms “pushchair” or “buggy” as what United Kingdom does, they pertain to prams as strollers, even though the most appropriate and suitable term to be used is carriage. If we are going to tackle about the history of prams, during the Victorian Era, the traditional prams were introduced to the public looking much taller and largely built in comparison to what we have now. Although nowadays, the most common baby equipment that is being used by parents are strollers (thus, coming the increasing demand for a more compact and lightweight one), baby prams are still being produced widely, which starts to become more popular once again.
