Bugaboo Donkey vs. Uppbaby Vista V2 - for a newborn and a 15mo?

Jackie • 03 Jul 2023


I’m having my second baby in November, my first is going to be 15 months old, so I need to buy a double pram.
I’m looking between the Bugaboo Donkey and the Uppbaby Vista V2. I live in a place where we rarely use a car it’s mostly walking, I want something nice looking but it has to be good quality all terrain bc of the heavy usage.

What do you advise and what’s pros and cons of each?

Hey, Jackie,

Out of these two, I would definitely go with the BGB Donkey. It will simply be 1000% better to push. With a heavier kid and a lighter baby, a tandem with one in the front and one in the back is a pain to lift up curbs as well as to turn. The center of gravity is simply off. A side-by-side is a MUCH more comfortable option.

Otherwise, both are nice, sturdy strollers, the Vista has a great basket and is heavier - but also sturdier, but still, the nimbleness of the Donkey is simply the winner here (from my point of view).

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
