As mentioned in my post about Baby Accessories, here is my review of the Bugaboo Cameleon3. Bugaboo calls it the “iconic stroller”. Read on to find out if it really deserves that title.
We started shopping for a stroller about 3 years ago before Isabella was born. As new parents, we knew little about what to look for in a stroller. But we knew we wanted something of high quality and I wanted something with a decent design. If you read my blog regularly, you know that I’m a fan of Apple products and so the design is important to me. Quality was important so we could use the stroller for multiple kids. I think at that time we had still planned to have 3 kids. We have two now and decided we’re done!
- High quality
- Decent design
Shopping for a Stroller
One day, we walked into a local baby supply store and asked a sales associate to show us strollers he would recommend. While trying the models he showed us, we quickly realized that we definitely wanted a stroller that we could fold easily. We also wanted a stroller that would accommodate a newborn and a toddler overtime. Last but not least, we wanted to be able to use it together with the PegPerego car seat we had already bought.
- Easy to fold
- Accommodates newborn and toddler
- Works with car seat
I also wanted to go running with Isabella at some point but realized, that running strollers are an entirely different animal. Months later I ended up buying a BOB Ironman running stroller (review) for that purpose.
Based on our new requirements, we were left with two choices the store had to offer:
Both strollers are priced at the upper end but they are of high quality and versatility. Kathy and I immediately fell in love with the Bugaboo Cameleon3 and its clean design language. So we made our choice and bought the Bugaboo, together with adapters for the PegPerego car seat.
The Bugaboo Cameleon3 is a good-looking stroller that we have used by now for over 2.5 years. It comes with a seat frame that can be configured as a bassinet (for newborns) or toddler seat. Optional adapters allow you to use it with a number of different car seat models.
An icon from the start, this fully-loaded original adapts to every age and journey. From newborn to toddler, from the city to woods, sand and snow, the versatile bugaboo cameleon³ makes it easy to go everywhere you want to go. (Bugaboo)
Additionally, you can quickly change wheel-position to use it on trails or hard-to-maneuver terrain like sand.
