Yes, even the Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is extremely costly. (And by the way, that is the ideal spelling, maybe not"chameleon" such as,y'understand , the chameleon.) Nevertheless, while our Bugaboo Cameleon finally broke following almost exactly four decades of nearly daily use, imagine what stroller we bought to replace it? Another Bugaboo.
During its life span, our Cameleon likely logged over 2,000 miles In my rough estimation. That variables in an almost everyday walk that has been more than two kilometers long and thousands of errands, museum and zoo visits, all-day trips throughout vacations, etc. We used our Cameleon five or six days each week from the initial times when our child was born through the afternoon its principal locking mechanism snapped, so rendering the chassis a fancy paperweight. All those years and the many miles help make the $1,200 price tag much easier to stomach.
Why you'll love it: The Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a transformer which converts from a bassinet to a three place, dual-direction seat that may carry children from birth to age three.
Now to be honest, even if packed , this stroller is still fairly bulky. Again, yes, it's extremely expensive. But I'll bet you also would consider buying another following years spent with your own first.
We've always loved the huge storage bag that slings beneath the stroller and also the adult's cup holder that clips onto the handle. With practice, I learned to find the stroller into its travel bag in about three minutes, a great supply of daddy pride. (Dads know what I am talking about. Moms, also.)
As for child comfort, this stroller is tough to beat. The bassinet is deep, softly padded, and can keep a baby warm and shielded from sunlight. As a chair for toddlers, it may be outfitted with a snack tray and cup holder. The chair tilts to varying positions to allow a youngster to recline for a nap or sit when they wish to see everything around them.
A post from Mother's Stroller Reviews claims the Cameleon's"maneuverability is completely great" and appreciates "the all-terrain brakes are foam filled." And a survey of evaluations left on the respected site Consumer Affairs found that the stroller features an average 4.5-star score among its most satisfied owners.
Experts: Great maneuverability, simple to accommodate varied configurations, responsive and smooth steering
While I say simplicity of usage, I mean 2 things. To begin with, it is very easy to maneuver, reacting as long as you navigate 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 various ways. The frame converts from a toddler's bassinet to an infant's chair to a toddler-sized setup in only a few minutes.
Disadvantages: Very Pricey, rather bulky
