While I say simplicity of use, I mean 2 things. First, it's very easy to steer, reacting as long as you navigate tight turns, trundle up or down, or push your stroller's foam-filled tires across rough terrain. Second, the flexible, modular stroller is easy to configure in a variety of manners. The frame moves from a newborn's bassinet into a baby's chair to some toddler-sized setup in only a few minutes.
Experts: Great maneuverability, simple to adapt to diverse configurations, smooth and responsive steering
Why you'll love itThe Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a transformer that moves from a bassinet into a 3 place, dual-direction chair that can carry children from birth to age 3.
A post from Mother's Stroller Reviews claims the Cameleon's"maneuverability is totally great" and enjoys "the all-terrain wheels are filled." And a poll of ratings left over the respected site Consumer Affairs discovered that the stroller comes with a typical 4.5-star score among its most satisfied owners.
We've also always loved the large storage bag that slings under the stroller and the adult's cup holder that clips onto the handle. And with practice, I learned to find the stroller into its travel bag in around three minutes, a excellent source of daddy pride. (Dads know what I'm talking about. Moms, too.)
Every piece of this stroller that may be removed for storage or through a reconfiguration is controlled through transparent white buttons, clasps, or locks that are easily identified and easy to operate.
Yes, even the Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is very costly. (And by the way, that is the ideal spelling, not"chameleon" like,y'know, the chameleon.) Nevertheless, while our Bugaboo Cameleon eventually broke after almost exactly four years of daily use, suppose what stroller we bought to replace it? Another Bugaboo.
Now to be fair, even if packed down, this stroller is still pretty bulky. But I'll wager you too would consider buying another after years spent together with your initial.
As for child comfort, this stroller is tough to beat. The bassinet is deep, softly cushioned, and will keep a baby warm and shielded from the sun. The seat tilts to varying places to allow a kid to recline for a rest or sit up when they wish to view everything around them.
In my estimation, our Cameleon logged more than 2,000 miles during its life span. That variables in a nearly daily walk which was more than two kilometers long and tens of thousands of errands, museum and zoo visits, all-day trips through vacations, etc. We utilized our Cameleon five or five days each week from the initial days when our child was born through the day its central locking mechanism snapped, so rendering the staircase a fancy paperweight. All those years and the numerous miles help make the $1,200 cost much easier to stomach.
Disadvantages: Very Pricey, rather bulky
