Yes, the Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is very pricey. (And yes, by the way, that is the ideal spelling, not"chameleon" like,y'knowthe chameleon.) Nevertheless, while our Bugaboo Cameleon finally broke following almost exactly four years of almost daily usage, guess what stroller we bought to replace it? Another Bugaboo.
Experts: Great maneuverability, easy to adapt to diverse configurations, responsive and smooth steering
Why you are going to love it: The Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a transformer which moves from a bassinet to a 3 position, dual-direction chair that may take children from birth to age three.
Through its lifespan, our Cameleon logged more than 2,000 miles by my estimation. That variables in an almost everyday walk which has been more than just two kilometers long and thousands of activities, zoo and museum visits, all-day excursions through vacations, etc. We used our Cameleon five or five days per week from the first times when our son was born through the day its own principal locking mechanism snapped, so making the staircase a fancy paperweight. All the years and the many miles make the $1,200 cost a lot easier to stomach.
We have always loved the massive storage bag that slings under the stroller and also the grownup cup holder that clips onto the handle. And with practice, I learned to find the stroller into its traveling bag in around three minutes, a excellent source of daddy pride. (Dads know what I'm discussing. Mothers, also.)
An article from Mother's Stroller Reviews says the Cameleon's"maneuverability is completely great" and appreciates "the all-terrain wheels are filled." Along with a poll of evaluations left on the respected site Consumer Affairs discovered that the stroller has an average 4.5-star rating among its most satisfied owners.
As for child comfort, this stroller is difficult to beat. The bassinet is deep, softly cushioned, and can keep a baby warm and shielded from the sun. The seat tilts to varying places to allow a youngster to bend for a nap or sit when they would like to view everything around them.
Cons: Very Pricey, rather bulky
Now to be honest, even if packed , this stroller is still fairly bulky. Again, yes, it's quite costly. But I'll bet you also would look at purchasing another following years spent together with your first.
When I say simplicity of use, I mean two things. First, it's quite simple 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. Second, the versatile, modular stroller is simple to configure in a variety of ways. The frame moves from a newborn's bassinet to a baby's chair to a toddler-sized setup in only a couple of minutes.
