Disadvantages: Very Pricey, rather bulky
Experts: Great maneuverability, easy to accommodate varied configurations, smooth and responsive steering
A post from Mother's Stroller Reviews says the Cameleon's"maneuverability is absolutely great" and appreciates "the all-terrain brakes are foam filled." Along with a survey of ratings left on the respected site Consumer Affairs discovered that the stroller has an average 4.5-star score among its most satisfied owners.
In terms of child relaxation, this stroller is difficult to beat. The bassinet is heavy, softly padded, and will keep a baby warm and shielded from sunlight. As a chair for toddlers, it can be outfitted with a snack tray and cup holder. The seat tilts to varying positions to allow a kid to bend for a rest or sit when they would like to view everything about them.
When I say ease of usage, I mean two things. To begin with, it is very easy to maneuver, reacting as long as you navigate tight ends, trundle up or down, or push your stroller's foam-filled tires over demanding terrain. Second, the flexible, modular stroller is simple to configure in a variety of manners. The framework converts from a toddler's bassinet into an infant's seat to a toddler-sized setup in just a couple minutes.
Why you'll love it: The Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a transformer that converts from a bassinet into a three position, dual-direction chair that can take children from birth to age three.
Now to be fair, even when packed , this stroller is still pretty bulky. Again, yes, it is quite expensive. But I'll bet you also would think about purchasing another after years spent with your first.
In my estimation, our Cameleon logged more than 2,000 miles throughout its life span. That factors in a nearly everyday walk that was more than just two kilometers long plus tens of thousands of errands, museum and zoo visits, all-day trips during vacations, and so forth. We used our Cameleon five or six days per week from the very initial days when our boy was born through the afternoon its fundamental locking mechanism snapped, so rendering the staircase a fancy paperweight. All the years and the numerous miles make the $1,200 price tag a lot easier to stomach.
(And by the way, that's the ideal spelling, maybe not"chameleon" such as,y'know, the chameleon.) But when our Bugaboo Cameleon finally broke following almost exactly four decades of nearly daily use, suppose what stroller we purchased to replace it? Another Bugaboo.
We've always loved the huge storage bag that slings beneath the stroller and the adult's cup holder that clips onto the handle. And with practice, I discovered to find the stroller into its travel bag in about three minutes, a excellent supply of daddy pride. (Dads understand what I'm referring to. Moms, too.)
