We've also always loved the large storage bag that slings beneath the stroller and the adult's cup holder that clips onto the handle. With practice, I learned to get the stroller disassembled and into its traveling bag in about three minutes, a great supply of daddy pride. (Dads understand what I am talking about. Moms, too.)
In my rough estimation, our Cameleon likely logged more than 2,000 miles throughout its lifespan. That factors in a nearly everyday walk that has been more than just two miles long plus thousands of activities, zoo and museum visits, all-day trips during vacations, and so forth. We used our Cameleon five or six days a week in the very initial times when our son was born via the day its principal locking mechanism snapped, making the chassis a fancy paperweight. All those years and the numerous miles help make the $1,200 cost a lot easier to stomach.
Now to be honest, even if packed down, this stroller is still pretty bulky. But I'll wager you also would consider purchasing another following years spent with your initial.
Experts: Great maneuverability, easy to adapt to diverse configurations, smooth and responsive steering
As for child comfort, this stroller is not easy to beat. The bassinet is heavy, softly cushioned, and will continue to keep a baby warm and shielded from sunlight. The chair tilts to varying positions to allow a kid to recline for a rest or sit when they want to view everything around them. And the big, shock-absorbing wheels keep the ride comfortable even over rugged floor.
Why you are going to love it: The Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a transformer that converts from a bassinet into a three place, dual-direction chair that could carry kids from birth to age three.
Yes, the Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is extremely expensive. (And yes, by the way, that's the correct spelling, not"chameleon" like,y'understand the chameleon.) Nevertheless, while our Bugaboo Cameleon eventually broke following almost exactly four years of almost daily usage, guess what stroller we purchased to replace it? Another Bugaboo.
When I say simplicity of use, I mean 2 things. First, it's very simple to steer, responding deftly even as you browse tight ends, trundle up or down, or push the stroller's foam-filled tires across rough terrain. Secondly, the versatile, modular stroller is simple to configure in various manners. The frame converts from a newborn's bassinet into an infant's seat into some toddler-sized installation in only a couple minutes.
Cons: Very Pricey, rather bulky
An article from Mom's Stroller Reviews claims the Cameleon's"maneuverability is totally great" and appreciates "the all-terrain wheels are filled." And a survey of evaluations left to the respected website Consumer Affairs found that the stroller comes with an average 4.5-star score among its many satisfied owners.
