We have always loved the massive storage bag that slings under the stroller and the grownup cup holder that clips on the handle. With practice, I discovered to find the stroller disassembled and into its traveling bag in around three minutes, a great source of dad pride. (Dads understand what I'm referring to. Moms, too.)
The Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a terrific selection for two main reasons: ease of usage, and child comfort. When I say ease of use, I mean two things. First, it is quite simple to maneuver, reacting as long as you navigate tight ends, trundle up or downhill, or push your stroller's foam-filled tires over demanding terrain. Secondly, the versatile, modular stroller is easy to configure in various ways. The framework moves from a newborn's bassinet into a baby's seat to some toddler-sized setup in only a few minutes.
Why you are going to love it: The Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a transformer that goes from a bassinet into a three position, dual-direction chair that may take children from birth to age three.
Now to be honest, even when packed down, this stroller is still pretty bulky. Again, yes, it's quite costly. But I'll wager you too would look at buying another after years spent with your first.
An article from Mother's Stroller Reviews states the Cameleon's"maneuverability is totally great" and enjoys "the all-terrain brakes are foam filled." Along with a survey of ratings left to the respected site Consumer Affairs discovered that the stroller features an average 4.5-star score among its many satisfied owners.
In terms of child comfort, this stroller is hard to beat. The bassinet is deep, softly cushioned, and can continue to keep a baby warm and shielded from sunlight. The seat tilts to varying places to allow a youngster to bend for a nap or sit when they wish to view everything around them.
Disadvantages: Very expensive, rather bulky
(And by the way, that is the ideal spelling, not"chameleon" like,y'understand , the chameleon.) But when our Bugaboo Cameleon eventually broke following almost exactly four decades of nearly daily usage, suppose what stroller we purchased to replace it? Another Bugaboo.
In my estimation, our Cameleon probably logged over 2,000 miles through its lifespan. That factors in an almost everyday walk which was more than two miles long and thousands of activities, museum and zoo visits, all-day excursions during vacations, and so forth. We utilized our Cameleon five or five days a week in the initial days when our boy was born through the day its principal locking mechanism snapped, rendering the staircase a fancy paperweight. All those years and the numerous miles make the $1,200 price tag a lot easier to stomach.
Experts: Great maneuverability, easy to accommodate diverse configurations, responsive and smooth steering
