While I say ease of use, I mean 2 things. To begin with, it's very easy to maneuver, responding deftly even as you browse tight turns, trundle up or downhill, 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 converts from a toddler's bassinet to a baby's chair into some toddler-sized installation in only a few minutes.
As for child relaxation, this stroller is not easy to beat. The bassinet is heavy, softly cushioned, and can keep a baby warm and protected from sunlight. The seat tilts to varying places to allow a kid to bend for a nap or sit when they wish to view everything about them. And the large, shock-absorbing wheels keep the ride comfortable even over rugged ground.
We've always loved the huge storage bag that slings under the stroller and the adult's cup holder that clips on the handle. With practice, I learned to get the stroller disassembled and into its traveling bag in around three minutes, a fantastic supply of dad pride. (Dads understand what I'm talking about. Mothers, also.)
Disadvantages: Very Pricey, rather bulky
A post from Mother's Stroller Reviews claims the Cameleon's"maneuverability is absolutely great" and enjoys that"the all-terrain brakes are filled." And a poll of ratings left to the respected site Consumer Affairs discovered that the stroller comes with a typical 4.5-star score among its most satisfied owners.
During its lifespan, our Cameleon probably logged over 2,000 miles by my rough estimation. 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 throughout vacations, and so forth. We used our Cameleon five or five days a week in the first days when our child was born through the day its principal locking mechanism snapped, rendering the chassis a fancy paperweight. All the years and the many miles help make the $1,200 cost a lot easier to stomach.
Pros: Great maneuverability, simple to accommodate varied configurations, smooth and responsive steering
Why you will love it: The Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a transformer which converts from a bassinet into a 3 position, dual-direction chair that may take kids from birth to age three.
(And by the way, that is the correct spelling, not"chameleon" such as,y'know, the chameleon.) But when our Bugaboo Cameleon finally broke after almost exactly four decades of almost daily use, imagine what stroller we bought to replace it? Another Bugaboo.
Now to be fair, even if packed , this stroller is still pretty bulky. But I'll bet you too would consider purchasing another after years spent with your initial.
Every bit of this stroller that may be removed for storage or during a reconfiguration is controlled via transparent white buttons, clasps, or locks that are easily identified and simple to work with.
