An article from Mother's Stroller Reviews claims the Cameleon's"maneuverability is completely great" and enjoys "the all-terrain brakes are foam filled." And a survey of ratings left on the respected website Consumer Affairs revealed that the stroller has an average 4.5-star score among its most satisfied owners.
Disadvantages: Very Pricey, rather bulky
Every piece of this stroller that may be removed for storage or through a reconfiguration is controlled via clear white buttons, clasps, or locks which are readily identified and easy to operate.
The Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a wonderful selection for two principal reasons: simplicity of usage, and child comfort. When I say simplicity of usage, I mean 2 things. To begin with, it is very simple to maneuver, reacting as long as you browse tight turns, trundle up or downhill, or push your stroller's foam-filled tires over demanding terrain. Second, the flexible, modular stroller is easy to configure in various manners. The framework converts from a newborn's bassinet to a baby's chair to a toddler-sized installation in only a couple minutes.
Why you'll love itThe Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a transformer which converts from a bassinet to a three position, dual-direction chair that can take kids from birth to age three.
Throughout its lifespan, our Cameleon logged over 2,000 miles In my rough estimation. That factors in a nearly daily walk which was more than just two miles long and tens of thousands of activities, museum and zoo visits, all-day trips through vacations, and so forth. We used our Cameleon five or seven days per week from the very initial times when our son was born through the day its central locking mechanism snapped, so making the staircase a fancy paperweight. All the years and the many miles help make the $1,200 cost a lot easier to stomach.
(And by the way, that's the right spelling, maybe not"chameleon" like,y'know, the chameleon.) Nevertheless, while our Bugaboo Cameleon eventually broke after almost exactly four years of daily use, imagine what stroller we bought to replace it? Another Bugaboo.
We've also always loved the massive storage bag that slings beneath the stroller and the adult's cup holder that clips onto the handle. With practice, I discovered to find the stroller disassembled and into its travel bag in about three minutes, a great supply of dad pride. (Dads know what I am talking about. Moms, too.)
In terms of child comfort, this stroller is tough to beat. The bassinet is heavy, softly padded, and can keep a baby warm and shielded from the sun. As a chair for toddlers, then it could be equipped with a snack tray and cup holder. The chair tilts to varying positions to allow a kid to recline for a rest or sit when they wish to see everything around them.
Experts: Great maneuverability, simple to accommodate varied configurations, responsive and smooth steering
Now to be honest, even if packed , this stroller is still pretty bulky. Again, yes, it's extremely expensive. But I'll bet you too would consider buying another after years spent with your initial.
