Now to be honest, even when packed down, this stroller is still pretty bulky. Again, yes, it is quite expensive. But I'll bet you also would consider purchasing another after years spent with your own first.
An article from Mother's Stroller Reviews says the Cameleon's"maneuverability is totally great" and appreciates "the all-terrain brakes are foam filled." And a survey of ratings left on the respected website Consumer Affairs revealed that the stroller comes with an average 4.5-star score among its most satisfied owners.
Disadvantages: Very expensive, rather bulky
We have also always loved the huge storage bag that slings beneath the stroller and also the grownup cup holder that clips onto the handle. With practice, I discovered to get the stroller into its traveling bag in about three minutes, a terrific source of daddy pride. (Dads know what I'm referring to. Moms, also.)
The Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a great choice for two key reasons: ease of use, and kid comfort. When I say ease of use, I mean 2 things. To begin with, it is quite easy to steer, reacting even as you navigate tight ends, trundle up or downhill, or push the stroller's foam-filled tires across demanding terrain. Second, the flexible, modular stroller is easy to configure in various manners. The framework converts from a toddler's bassinet into an infant's chair to some toddler-sized setup in only a couple minutes.
Experts: Great maneuverability, easy to accommodate varied configurations, smooth and responsive steering
Throughout its lifespan, our Cameleon likely logged over 2,000 miles by my rough estimation. That factors in a nearly everyday walk that has been more than just two miles long and tens of thousands of errands, zoo and museum visits, all-day trips through vacations, and so forth. We used our Cameleon five or six days each week from the first times when our son was born through the afternoon its central locking mechanism snapped, so rendering the staircase a fancy paperweight. All those years and the numerous miles help make the $1,200 price tag a lot easier to stomach.
Why you are going to love it: The Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is a transformer that converts from a bassinet to a three position, dual-direction chair that could carry kids from birth to age 3.
(And by the way, that is the correct spelling, not"chameleon" such as,y'understand , the chameleon.) But when our Bugaboo Cameleon finally broke after almost exactly four years of almost daily use, guess what stroller we bought to replace it? Another Bugaboo.
As for child relaxation, this stroller is tough to beat. The bassinet is deep, softly padded, and can keep a baby warm and protected from sunlight. As a seat for toddlers, it could be equipped with a snack tray and cup holder. The seat tilts to varying places to allow a youngster to recline for a nap or sit when they wish to view everything around them.
