Bugaboo Frog: Will the Bugaboo wheeled board work on the Bugaboo Frog frame?

Rachel • 18 Sep 2021

Can I use the Bugaboo wheeled board on the frog? I saw it on the Cam and thought it looked like I could attach it in a similar way. But I don't want to invest if it won't work.

Thanks!!!

Hello, Rachel,

This question is a bit problematic because of two things. Bugaboo itself claims two opposite things: that the Bugaboo Comfort Wheeled Board can be used on all Bugaboo strollers:

Bugaboo Ant (no adapter required)Bugaboo Fox, Bugaboo Fox 2 and Bugaboo Fox 3 (no adapter required)Bugaboo Cameleon (2007 model) and Bugaboo Cameleon 3 (in combination with the Bugaboo Cameleon 3 adapter)Bugaboo Bee (2010 model) and Bugaboo Bee 3 (in combination with the Bugaboo Bee 3 adapter), Bugaboo Bee 5 (no adapter required) and Bugaboo Bee 6 (no adapter required)Bugaboo Donkey and Bugaboo Buffalo (in combination with the Bugaboo Donkey/ Buffalo adapter)

That means ALL but not all as the original Bugaboo Cameleon and the first Bugaboo Bee, and also the Frog and the Bugaboo Gecko are not even mentioned as Bugaboo strollers.

Officially, then, the sibling wheeled board accessory is not recommended and supported for these (and your) Bugaboo models. However, I do believe that with pretty much the same rear bars, the old Bugaboo Cameleon and Frog SHOULD be compatible with the wheeled board WITH ADAPTER for the Bugaboo Cameleon (2007 model).

The question also is that, as older models, these strollers could get seriously strained to damaged by being used with the extra weight of the board and the child on it on the rear axle that is more than 15 years old!

My own advice would be not to use it there... but if you absolutely need it, I would definitely try it with the Cameleon+ (2007 model) adapter. A good way is also to get an older board used with the older Cam before second-hand - it will be cheaper and you can even go and try it out in real life if the seller is close enough.

If not wanting to take risks while still absolutely certain about the buggy board, I have one more suggestion here. Try a Bumprider or a Lascal board that will work FOR SURE while, if your stroller gets damaged or you will swap it for a lighter or a more compact one, you can still use such a universal sibling board on a completely different model.

Your -very berry- Eli.

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