Cons: Very Pricey, rather bulky
Experts: Great maneuverability, easy to adapt to varied configurations, responsive and smooth steering
We've also always loved the massive storage bag that slings beneath the stroller and also the adult's cup holder that clips on the handle. With practice, I learned to get the stroller into its traveling bag in around three minutes, a terrific source of daddy pride. (Dads understand what I'm discussing. Mothers, also.)
Why you will love it: The Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a transformer which moves from a bassinet into a three place, dual-direction seat that can carry kids from birth to age three.
As for child comfort, this stroller is tough to beat. The bassinet is deep, softly cushioned, and can keep a baby warm and shielded from the sun. As a seat for toddlers, then it may be outfitted with a snack tray and cup holder. The seat tilts to varying positions to allow a youngster to bend for a nap or sit up when they wish to view everything about them. Along with the big, shock-absorbing wheels keep the ride comfortable even over solid ground.
(And yes, by the way, that's the right spelling, not"chameleon" such as,y'understand the chameleon.) Nevertheless, while our Bugaboo Cameleon eventually broke following almost exactly four decades of nearly daily use, guess what stroller we purchased to replace it? Another Bugaboo.
Through its lifespan, our Cameleon likely logged over 2,000 miles by my rough estimation. That variables in a nearly everyday walk that has been more than just two miles long and thousands of activities, zoo and museum visits, all-day excursions throughout vacations, and so forth. We utilized our Cameleon five or seven days each week from the first times when our child was born via the afternoon its principal locking mechanism snapped, so making the chassis a fancy paperweight. All the years and the many miles help make the $1,200 price tag much easier to stomach.
Now to be honest, even when packed down, this stroller is still pretty bulky. Again, yes, it is extremely costly. But I'll bet you also would think about purchasing another after years spent together with your first.
An article from Mother's Stroller Reviews states the Cameleon's"maneuverability is absolutely great" and appreciates that"the all-terrain brakes are filled." And a poll of ratings left over the respected website Consumer Affairs revealed that the stroller has an average 4.5-star rating among its many satisfied owners.
Every bit of the stroller that can be removed for storage or through a reconfiguration is controlled through clear white buttons, clasps, or locks that are readily identified and easy to operate.
When I say simplicity of usage, I mean 2 things. First, it's quite easy to maneuver, responding deftly even as you browse tight turns, trundle up or downhill, or push your stroller's foam-filled tires across rough terrain. Second, the flexible, modular stroller is easy to configure in various manners. The framework moves from a toddler's bassinet into a baby's seat to a toddler-sized setup in only a few minutes.
