Disadvantages: Very Pricey, rather bulky
We have always loved the massive storage bag that slings under the stroller and the adult's cup holder that clips onto the handle. And with practice, I learned to get the stroller into its traveling bag in about three minutes, a terrific source of dad pride. (Dads understand what I'm discussing. Moms, too.)
Why you will love itThe Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a transformer which moves from a bassinet into a three position, dual-direction chair that could carry children from birth to age 3.
An article from Mom's Stroller Reviews states the Cameleon's"maneuverability is completely great" and appreciates that"the all-terrain wheels are foam filled." Along with a poll of evaluations left over the respected site Consumer Affairs revealed that the stroller features a typical 4.5-star rating among its many satisfied owners.
Now to be fair, even if packed , this stroller is still pretty bulky. But I'll wager you too would look at buying another after years spent together with your initial.
By my rough estimation, our Cameleon logged over 2,000 miles through its life span. That variables in a nearly daily walk that was more than two miles long and thousands of errands, zoo and museum visits, all-day trips through vacations, etc. We used our Cameleon five or six days per week in the very first times when our son was born via the day its own principal locking mechanism snapped, so making the chassis a fancy paperweight. All those years and the many miles make the $1,200 cost a lot easier to stomach.
Every bit of this stroller that 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 work with.
Pros: Great maneuverability, easy to accommodate diverse configurations, smooth and responsive steering
While I say simplicity of use, I mean two things. First, it's very easy to maneuver, reacting even as you navigate tight turns, trundle up or downhill, or push the stroller's foam-filled tires over demanding terrain. Secondly, the versatile, modular stroller is simple to configure in various manners. The frame moves from a toddler's bassinet into a baby's chair into a toddler-sized setup in just a couple of minutes.
In terms of child relaxation, this stroller is difficult to beat. The bassinet is heavy, softly padded, and will keep a baby warm and protected from the sun. As a chair for toddlers, it can be outfitted with a snack tray and cup holder. The seat tilts to varying places to allow a youngster to bend for a nap or sit up when they want to see everything around them. And the big, shock-absorbing wheels keep the ride comfortable even over rugged ground.
(And by the way, that's the ideal spelling, maybe not"chameleon" like,y'know, the chameleon.) But when our Bugaboo Cameleon eventually broke following almost exactly four decades of nearly daily usage, guess what stroller we bought to replace it? Another Bugaboo.
