The Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a excellent option for two key reasons: ease of usage, and kid comfort. When I say simplicity of usage, I mean two things. First, it is quite easy to steer, responding deftly as long as you browse tight ends, trundle up or down, or push your stroller's foam-filled tires across rough terrain. Secondly, the flexible, modular stroller is easy to configure in a variety of ways. The frame converts from a newborn's bassinet to a baby's chair to a toddler-sized installation in just a few minutes.
We've always loved the huge storage bag that slings under the stroller and the grownup cup holder that clips onto the handle. With practice, I discovered to find the stroller disassembled and into its traveling bag in about three minutes, a terrific source of dad pride. (Dads know what I'm talking about. Mothers, too.)
A post from Mom's Stroller Reviews claims the Cameleon's"maneuverability is completely great" and appreciates "the all-terrain wheels are foam filled." Along with a survey of evaluations left to the respected site Consumer Affairs discovered that the stroller comes with an average 4.5-star score among its most satisfied owners.
Every bit of the 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 easy to operate.
Throughout its lifespan, our Cameleon logged over 2,000 miles by my rough estimation. That factors in an almost daily walk which was more than two miles long and tens of thousands of errands, zoo and museum visits, all-day excursions during vacations, etc. We utilized our Cameleon five or six days each week in the first days when our boy was born via the afternoon its central locking mechanism snapped, so making the chassis a fancy paperweight. All the years and the numerous miles help make the $1,200 price tag a lot easier to stomach.
In terms of child comfort, this stroller is tough to beat. The bassinet is heavy, softly padded, and will keep a baby warm and shielded from the sun. The seat tilts to varying positions to allow a kid to recline for a nap or sit when they would like to see everything about them. Along with the big, shock-absorbing wheels keep the ride comfortable even over bumpy floor.
Pros: Great maneuverability, easy to accommodate varied configurations, smooth and responsive steering
Now to be honest, even if packed , this stroller is still pretty bulky. Again, yes, it's very expensive. But I'll wager you also would think about buying another after years spent together with your first.
Why you'll love it: The Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a transformer that goes from a bassinet to a 3 place, dual-direction chair that may take kids from birth to age 3.
Yes, the Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is extremely pricey. (And yes, by the way, that is the perfect spelling, maybe not"chameleon" such as,y'understand the chameleon.) But when our Bugaboo Cameleon finally broke after almost exactly four years of nearly daily use, imagine what stroller we purchased to replace it? Another Bugaboo.
Cons: Very expensive, rather bulky
