Why you are going to love itThe Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a transformer which moves from a bassinet into a three place, dual-direction chair that can carry children from birth to age 3.
Disadvantages: Very Pricey, rather bulky
Pros: Great maneuverability, simple to accommodate varied configurations, responsive and smooth steering
Now to be fair, even when packed down, this stroller is still fairly bulky. But I'll bet you too would consider purchasing another after years spent together with your first.
An article from Mom's Stroller Reviews says the Cameleon's"maneuverability is absolutely great" and enjoys that"the all-terrain brakes are filled." And a poll of ratings left on the respected site Consumer Affairs revealed that the stroller comes with an average 4.5-star score among its many satisfied owners.
We've always loved the huge storage bag that slings beneath the stroller and the adult's cup holder that clips on the handle. With practice, I learned to find the stroller into its traveling bag in around three minutes, a wonderful supply of daddy pride. (Dads know what I am referring to. Mothers, also.)
In my estimation, our Cameleon likely logged over 2,000 miles throughout its life span. That factors in a nearly everyday walk that has been more than just two kilometers long plus tens of thousands of errands, zoo and museum visits, all-day trips during vacations, and so forth. We utilized our Cameleon five or seven days each week from the initial times when our boy was born via the day its principal locking mechanism snapped, rendering the chassis a fancy paperweight. All the years and the numerous miles make the $1,200 cost a lot easier to stomach.
Yes, the Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is quite expensive. (And by the way, that's the perfect spelling, not"chameleon" such as,y'understand the chameleon.) But when our Bugaboo Cameleon eventually broke after almost exactly four years of nearly daily use, guess what stroller we purchased to replace it? Another Bugaboo.
The Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a wonderful selection for two key reasons: simplicity of use, and child comfort. While I say simplicity of use, I mean 2 things. To begin with, it's quite easy to maneuver, responding deftly even as you browse tight ends, trundle up or down, or push the stroller's foam-filled tires over rough terrain. Secondly, the versatile, modular stroller is easy to configure in a variety of ways. The framework converts from a toddler's bassinet to an infant's seat to a toddler-sized installation in just a few minutes.
As for child relaxation, this stroller is not easy to beat. The bassinet is deep, softly padded, and can keep a baby warm and shielded from sunlight. The chair tilts to varying places to allow a youngster to bend for a nap or sit when they wish to view everything about them. Along with the large, shock-absorbing wheels keep the ride comfortable even over bumpy floor.
