Yes, the Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is extremely costly. (And yes, by the way, that is the right spelling, not"chameleon" like,y'know, the chameleon.) But when our Bugaboo Cameleon eventually broke following almost exactly four decades of daily use, suppose what stroller we bought to replace it? Another Bugaboo.
The Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a superb option for two key reasons: ease of usage, and kid comfort. While I say ease of use, I mean 2 things. To begin with, it's very easy to steer, reacting even as you navigate tight turns, trundle up or downhill, or push your stroller's foam-filled tires across demanding terrain. Secondly, the versatile, modular stroller is simple to configure in a variety of manners. The frame moves from a toddler's bassinet to an infant's chair to a toddler-sized installation in just a couple of minutes.
We have also always loved the huge storage bag that slings under the stroller and also the grownup cup holder that clips onto the handle. And with practice, I discovered to find the stroller into its travel bag in around three minutes, a fantastic supply of daddy pride. (Dads know what I am referring to. Mothers, too.)
In terms of child comfort, this stroller is tough to beat. The bassinet is deep, softly padded, and can continue to keep a baby warm and shielded from sunlight. The seat tilts to varying positions to allow a kid to recline for a nap or sit up when they want to view everything about them.
Now to be honest, even if packed down, this stroller is still pretty bulky. Again, yes, it is very costly. But I'll wager you too would consider purchasing another following years spent with your own first.
Cons: Very Pricey, rather bulky
Every bit of this stroller which may be removed for storage or through a reconfiguration is controlled via clear white buttons, clasps, or locks that are readily identified and simple to operate.
Why you'll love itThe Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a transformer that goes from a bassinet into a 3 position, dual-direction seat that could take kids from birth to age three.
Experts: Great maneuverability, easy to accommodate varied configurations, responsive and smooth steering
An article from Mother's Stroller Reviews claims the Cameleon's"maneuverability is absolutely great" and enjoys that"the all-terrain wheels are filled." And a poll of ratings left on the respected website Consumer Affairs found that the stroller comes with a typical 4.5-star rating among its many satisfied owners.
By my estimation, our Cameleon likely logged more than 2,000 miles throughout its lifespan. That variables in an almost daily walk which was more than two kilometers long and thousands of activities, museum and zoo visits, all-day trips through vacations, and so forth. We used our Cameleon five or seven days each week in the very initial times when our child was born through the day its fundamental locking mechanism snapped, so rendering the chassis a fancy paperweight. All those years and the many miles make the $1,200 cost a lot easier to stomach.
