Disadvantages: Very expensive, rather bulky
(And by the way, that is the perfect spelling, maybe not"chameleon" such as,y'knowthe chameleon.) But when our Bugaboo Cameleon finally broke after almost exactly four decades of daily usage, suppose what stroller we purchased to replace it? Another Bugaboo.
While I say ease of usage, I mean 2 things. To begin with, it is quite simple to maneuver, responding deftly as long as you navigate tight turns, trundle up or down, or push the stroller's foam-filled tires across demanding terrain. Secondly, the flexible, modular stroller is easy to configure in various manners. The frame moves from a newborn's bassinet into a baby's seat into some toddler-sized installation in just a couple of minutes.
We've always loved the large storage bag that slings under the stroller and also the adult's cup holder that clips on the handle. With practice, I learned to find the stroller into its travel bag in around three minutes, a wonderful source of dad pride. (Dads know what I am talking about. Mothers, also.)
Experts: Great maneuverability, simple to adapt to diverse configurations, smooth and responsive steering
A post from Mother's Stroller Reviews claims the Cameleon's"maneuverability is absolutely great" and enjoys "the all-terrain wheels are filled." Along with a survey of evaluations left over the respected website Consumer Affairs discovered that the stroller has a typical 4.5-star score among its many satisfied owners.
In terms of child relaxation, this stroller is hard to beat. The bassinet is deep, softly cushioned, and can continue to keep a baby warm and shielded from sunlight. As a seat for toddlers, then it can be outfitted with a snack tray and cup holder. The seat tilts to varying positions to allow a kid to bend for a nap or sit when they wish to see everything around them. And the big, shock-absorbing wheels keep the ride comfortable even over bumpy ground.
Why you are going to love it: The Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a transformer that moves from a bassinet to a 3 position, dual-direction seat that may take children from birth to age 3.
Every bit of this stroller that may be removed for storage or during a reconfiguration is controlled through transparent white buttons, clasps, or locks that are readily identified and simple to operate.
Throughout its lifespan, our Cameleon logged over 2,000 miles by my rough estimation. That variables in an almost everyday walk that was more than just two kilometers long plus thousands of activities, museum and zoo visits, all-day trips through vacations, etc. We utilized our Cameleon five or five days a week from the very initial times when our son was born through the afternoon its own principal locking mechanism snapped, rendering the chassis a fancy paperweight. All the years and the numerous miles make the $1,200 cost a lot easier to stomach.
Now to be fair, even when packed down, this stroller is still fairly bulky. But I'll wager you also would look at purchasing another following years spent with your initial.
