When I say simplicity of usage, I mean two things. To begin with, it is quite simple to steer, reacting even as you browse tight ends, trundle up or down, or push your stroller's foam-filled tires across rough terrain. Secondly, the flexible, modular stroller is easy to configure in various manners. The framework moves from a toddler's bassinet to an infant's chair into a toddler-sized installation in only a few minutes.
As for child relaxation, this stroller is not easy to beat. The bassinet is heavy, softly cushioned, and can keep a baby warm and protected from the sun. As a chair for toddlers, it can be equipped with a snack tray and cup holder. The chair tilts to varying places to allow a kid to recline for a nap or sit up when they would like to see everything about them.
During its life span, our Cameleon probably logged over 2,000 miles In my rough estimation. That variables in an almost everyday walk which has been more than just two miles long plus thousands of errands, museum and zoo visits, all-day excursions through vacations, etc. We used our Cameleon five or six days each week from the very first times when our boy was born through the day its central locking mechanism snapped, rendering the staircase a fancy paperweight. All those years and the many miles help make the $1,200 price tag much easier to stomach.
Why you are going to love it: The Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a transformer that moves from a bassinet to a 3 position, dual-direction seat that can carry kids from birth to age three.
Now to be honest, even when packed , this stroller is still pretty bulky. But I'll bet you too would look at buying another following years spent together with your own first.
Pros: Great maneuverability, easy to accommodate diverse configurations, responsive and smooth steering
A post from Mother's Stroller Reviews claims the Cameleon's"maneuverability is totally great" and enjoys "the all-terrain wheels are foam filled." Along with a poll of ratings left on the respected website Consumer Affairs discovered that the stroller comes with an average 4.5-star rating among its many satisfied owners.
Cons: Very Pricey, rather bulky
(And by the way, that is the right spelling, not"chameleon" like,y'know, the chameleon.) But when our Bugaboo Cameleon eventually broke following almost exactly four decades of nearly daily use, imagine what stroller we bought to replace it? Another Bugaboo.
We've also always loved the massive storage bag that slings under the stroller and also the grownup cup holder that clips on the handle. And with practice, I learned to get the stroller disassembled and into its travel bag in about three minutes, a wonderful supply of dad pride. (Dads know what I'm referring to. Moms, also.)
