We've always loved the massive storage bag that slings under the stroller and also the grownup cup holder that clips onto the handle. With practice, I learned to find the stroller into its travel bag in about three minutes, a fantastic supply of dad pride. (Dads know what I'm talking about. Moms, too.)
In my rough estimation, our Cameleon logged over 2,000 miles throughout its lifespan. That variables in a nearly everyday walk which has been more than two miles long plus thousands of activities, zoo and museum visits, all-day trips during vacations, and so forth. We utilized our Cameleon five or seven days per week in the very initial times when our son was born via the day its own central locking mechanism snapped, rendering the staircase a fancy paperweight. All those years and the many miles make the $1,200 cost much easier to stomach.
Every piece of the stroller which may be removed for storage or during a reconfiguration is controlled through clear white buttons, clasps, or locks that are readily identified and simple to operate.
In terms of child comfort, this stroller is really tough to beat. The bassinet is deep, softly cushioned, and can continue to keep a baby warm and shielded from the sun. As a seat for toddlers, then it could be outfitted with a snack tray and cup holder. The chair tilts to varying positions to allow a kid to bend for a rest or sit when they want to see everything around them. And the large, shock-absorbing wheels keep the ride comfortable even over rugged ground.
While I say ease of use, I mean 2 things. To begin with, it is very simple to maneuver, reacting even as you navigate tight ends, trundle up or down, or push your stroller's foam-filled tires across rough terrain. Secondly, the flexible, modular stroller is easy to configure in a variety of manners. The framework moves from a toddler's bassinet into a baby's seat to a toddler-sized installation in only a couple minutes.
Why you will love itThe Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a transformer which goes from a bassinet to a three position, dual-direction seat that could carry children from birth to age 3.
Pros: Great maneuverability, simple to accommodate varied configurations, smooth and responsive steering
Now to be honest, even when packed down, this stroller is still fairly bulky. Again, yes, it is extremely costly. But I'll bet you too would look at buying another following years spent together with your own first.
A post from Mother's Stroller Reviews claims the Cameleon's"maneuverability is completely great" and enjoys that"the all-terrain brakes are filled." Along with a poll of evaluations left over the respected site Consumer Affairs found that the stroller comes with a typical 4.5-star score among its many satisfied owners.
Cons: Very expensive, rather bulky
Yes, the Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is extremely expensive. (And yes, by the way, that is the right spelling, maybe not"chameleon" such as,y'knowthe chameleon.) But when our Bugaboo Cameleon eventually broke after almost exactly four years of daily usage, suppose what stroller we bought to replace it? Another Bugaboo.
