Before moving to Manhattan, my family took a trip to pick out a neighborhood that we liked. While my guy was taking measurements of the rooms in the place, I was scoping out the stroller population. It would seem that Bugaboo strollers were a major part of this neighborhood. Most people were pushing these strollers around and I knew that I had to get one. The problem was there are so many to choose from. Having a little one who tires out easily, was going to need a stroller that would fit in with the population. There was no way that I was going to let my little one be out of style. I tried three different Bugaboo strollers: The Donkey, Cameleon, and Frog.
The Frog gained its big popularity on Sex and the City. The one thing that I liked about it was that it was packed with features that you wouldn’t find on a regular stroller. It not only looks different from other strollers, but it even acts differently. The frog has frog like suspension in the small wheels which makes it easier to go over those bumpy sidewalks and rough park terrain. The frog has car seat adaptors which will work on various types of seats. It is light weight and it is a bit bulky to go through certain doors and there are no cup holders or trays that you can set things on.
The Cameleon 3 is multi-terrain, versatile, and compact. It works for children up to 3 and the bassinet does convert into a seat and it is self-standing. The seat is able to sit up straight, lie flat, or recline for long trips. It is completely reversible and is able to face the front or back. There is also adjustable suspension, height adjustable handlebar, foam filled tires, and swivel wheel suspension. It also comes with a 5-point harness that has adjustable shoulder straps.
The Donkey really stood out to me. It expands width wise to accommodate a second child if needed. It is able to hold two kids side by side and still fit through an average door. For me that means that if I had another child neither one of them would be fighting over to sit in front. This model holds a shopping basket with ease and still has plenty of room for my little one to ride. It does have air filled tires and it easy to push without really having to struggle or feel the impact in my upper back and shoulders. Both seats are able to be adjusted to face forward or backwards. The brake has a once click movement.
Overall these models of Bugaboo are the best and most popular. I tend to lean more towards the Donkey for those who live in the city like I do. Plus, it is a great thing if you are planning a second child or are having twins. You certainly can’t go wrong with a great Bugaboo model.
