Top 5 Best Bugaboo Stroller | 2018 Reviews
So you've heard everyone raving about Bugaboo Strollers. You know that Bugaboo is a reliable brand. But with so many different models to choose from: Donkey, Cameleon, Fox... how do you choose what's best for you?
As usual, we at ParentsNeed HQ have done the hard work for you and distilled the choices down to what’s important and what fits with your lifestyle. So let’s get started with our Top 5 Best Bugaboo Strollers review.
Criteria for Choosing the best Bugaboo Stroller
1. How many kids do you want to transport?
If you're looking to transport more than 1 precious passenger inside the stroller by yourself, there's only 1 stroller in Bugaboo's line up that's up for the challenge. It's the Bugaboo Donkey. The Bugaboo Donkey comes in 2 different configurations: one for carrying children of different size and age; one for carrying twins. Other Bugaboo Strollers can utilize the comfort wheeled board to carry 2 children of different ages.
Bugaboo Wheeled Board (with seat)
TAKE NOTE: The bugaboo wheeled Board is an excellent addition to your Bugaboo Stroller for letting an older child hitch a ride when they're tired. It also has a detachable seat so your older child has the option to sit or stand. Don't forget you have to purchase the right adapter for your model of Bugaboo Stroller. A Bugaboo Wheeled Board adapter for the Bugaboo Bee will NOT fit a Bugaboo Cameleon.
2. Active and Outdoor use?
If you're active and are looking to use the stroller to take your baby/kids along for a run, rollerblade, or a speed-walk, look no further... the best bugaboo stroller for you is the Bugaboo Runner. This Bugaboo stroller has a sturdy fixed front wheel design with 3 large wheels to handle any surface with ease.
3. Is space an issue?
If you're living in the city or a place with limited real-estate indoors or out, then the best bugaboo stroller would be the Bugaboo Bee. This is the smallest, lightest and cheapest stroller of the Bugaboo lineup and comes in at a mere 19.6 lbs / 8.9 kgs.
Do you live in the city, like to go out for a run, but also enjoy exploring malls and shops? Then the best bugaboo stroller to fit your bill is the Bugaboo Fox. The Bugaboo Fox is the most versatile stroller in the Bugaboo Lineup. This stroller is designed for the city, for travel, and for the outdoors. Its got excellent ground clearance, and has built-in suspension for a smooth ride.
5. But I want it all what can I do?
The beauty of the Bugaboo system, is that a lot of parts are interchangeable. You can use the bassinet, seat, drink holder, sun canopy, from any Bugaboo Stroller, in any other Bugaboo Stroller. So, if the best Bugaboo stroller for you is the Bugaboo Bee, but you're serious about running, well you don't have to buy the entire Bugaboo Runner, you just buy the Bugaboo Runner chassis (at half the price), and then clip the seat/bassinet from the Bugaboo Bee, and away you go.
Finally, last but not least, a very important criteria is price. Bugaboo strollers are not cheap. But due to their versatility, they can end up saving you money and space, especially if your lifestyle demands multiple strollers. If price is an issue, but you still want a stroller that's good around the city, but also a capable companion when traveling or outdoor, then the best Bugaboo Stroller for you is the Bugaboo Cameleon. While the Bugaboo Bee is cheaper than the Bugaboo Cameleon, the Bugaboo Bee is only for light duty and is not recommended for use outside city streets and parks.
