Now to be fair, even when packed down, this stroller is still pretty bulky. Again, yes, it is very costly. But I'll bet you too would look at purchasing another after years spent with your first.
As for child comfort, this stroller is tough to beat. The bassinet is heavy, softly cushioned, and will continue to keep a baby warm and protected from the sun. The seat tilts to varying places to allow a youngster to bend for a nap or sit when they wish to see everything around them.
Disadvantages: Very Pricey, rather bulky
Why you will love it: The Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a transformer which moves from a bassinet into a 3 place, dual-direction seat that can take kids from birth to age 3.
Every piece of this stroller which can be removed for storage or during a reconfiguration is controlled through transparent white buttons, clasps, or locks that are easily identified and easy to work with.
An article from Mother's Stroller Reviews states the Cameleon's"maneuverability is totally great" and enjoys "the all-terrain wheels are filled." Along with a poll of ratings left on the respected website Consumer Affairs discovered that the stroller has a typical 4.5-star score among its many satisfied owners.
In my rough estimation, our Cameleon likely logged over 2,000 miles through its lifespan. That factors in a nearly everyday walk that was more than two kilometers long plus thousands of activities, museum and zoo visits, all-day trips during vacations, etc. We utilized our Cameleon five or five days per week from the initial times when our boy was born through the afternoon its own central locking mechanism snapped, so rendering the chassis a fancy paperweight. All the years and the many miles make the $1,200 cost much easier to stomach.
(And by the way, that is the right spelling, not"chameleon" such as,y'understand the chameleon.) Nevertheless, while our Bugaboo Cameleon eventually broke after almost exactly four years of daily use, imagine what stroller we purchased to replace it? Another Bugaboo.
Pros: Great maneuverability, simple to accommodate varied configurations, responsive and smooth steering
The Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a great option for two principal reasons: simplicity of usage, and kid comfort. When I say simplicity of use, I mean two things. To begin with, it is quite easy to steer, responding deftly as long as you navigate tight ends, trundle up or downhill, or push the stroller's foam-filled tires across rough terrain. Secondly, the flexible, modular stroller is simple to configure in a variety of ways. The frame moves from a newborn's bassinet to a baby's seat to some toddler-sized setup in only a few minutes.
We have 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 great source of daddy pride. (Dads understand what I'm talking about. Mothers, also.)
