While I say simplicity of use, I mean 2 things. To begin with, it is quite easy to maneuver, responding deftly as long as you navigate tight ends, trundle up or downhill, or push the stroller's foam-filled tires over demanding terrain. Second, the flexible, modular stroller is simple to configure in a variety of ways. The framework converts from a toddler's bassinet to an infant's seat to a toddler-sized setup in just a couple of minutes.
(And by the way, that's the right spelling, not"chameleon" like,y'understand the chameleon.) But when our Bugaboo Cameleon finally broke after almost exactly four decades of daily use, suppose what stroller we bought to replace it? Another Bugaboo.
Throughout its life span, our Cameleon likely logged more than 2,000 miles by my estimation. That variables in an almost daily walk which has been more than two kilometers long plus thousands of errands, zoo and museum visits, all-day trips throughout vacations, and so forth. We used our Cameleon five or six days per week from the initial times when our son was born via the day its own fundamental locking mechanism snapped, so rendering the staircase a fancy paperweight. All the years and the many miles help make the $1,200 cost much easier to stomach.
Now to be honest, even when packed down, this stroller is still fairly bulky. But I'll wager you also would look at purchasing another following years spent together with your first.
In terms of child relaxation, this stroller is tough to beat. The bassinet is heavy, softly padded, and can continue to keep a baby warm and protected from sunlight. The chair tilts to varying positions to allow a youngster to bend for a nap or sit up when they would like to view everything around them. And the big, shock-absorbing wheels keep the ride comfortable even over bumpy floor.
Experts: Great maneuverability, simple to adapt to diverse configurations, smooth and responsive steering
Why you are going to love itThe Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a transformer that converts from a bassinet to a 3 position, dual-direction seat that could carry children from birth to age three.
Cons: Very Pricey, rather bulky
An article from Mother's Stroller Reviews claims the Cameleon's"maneuverability is absolutely great" and enjoys that"the all-terrain wheels are filled." And a poll of evaluations left over the respected site Consumer Affairs found that the stroller has an average 4.5-star score among its most satisfied owners.
We have also always loved the massive storage bag that slings under the stroller and the adult's cup holder that clips onto the handle. With practice, I discovered to find the stroller into its travel bag in about three minutes, a excellent source of dad pride. (Dads know what I'm referring to. Moms, too.)
