Design-wise, the best on the market

4
  • lightweight
  • compact
  • variability of accessories
  • seat unit can be clicked on in both directions
  • extending canopy
  • easy manipulation (even with one hand)
  • removable wheels (possible to change the small ones for big in winter and difficult terrain)
  • large shopping basket with a weight limit of up to 10kg
  • bad access to the basket, when you have the carrycot on

I already have it for a second child. With the older one, we used it for short walks and moving around the city up to her 2.5 years. I didn't need an umbrella stroller or anything "smaller", Cam is compact and reasonably lightweight. We traveled with it also by air (2 times) - while using the convenient Bugaboo travel bag. Except for the really bad access to the basket, when you have the carrycot on, it has no cons for me. But after 7 months it is no longer a problem - the baby then passes on to the seat unit part. We even managed to tackle some difficult terrain - for those often passing through a forest, there is the possibility of changing the smaller wheels for larger ones. Great is also the extendable canopy, and the quick changing of the direction of travel with the seat - even when the child is sitting in it. For me, design-wise, the best on the market, at least at the time we bought it - 4 years ago. 👌🏼

I expected more

3
  • Hand operated central brake
  • Design
  • Driveability
  • Bad accessibility of the basket with a carrycot
  • Felt wobbly
  • Price
  • The hood seemed all the time creased
  • Cumbersome folding, and not in one piece

I expected more, especially with such a high price.

I will stay with Bugaboo - even for a second child

  • ease of manipulation
  • easy to fold
  • lightweight chassis
  • extended hood
  • many spare parts and accessories available
  • rattles on uneven surfaces
  • foam handlebar and bumper bar

I bought this pram because of its design, which appealed to me, and also because of its features. Easy to operate with one hand, super easy to walk with it between store shelves. The carrycot is lightweight and easily clicked off and on the chassis. I have a winter baby - the extending hood was an enormous advantage for me. It protects the baby from the wind and makes the inside of the carrycot much warmer, even if it’s cold outside.

I minded the most that the front wheels rattled (my husband solved the problem though) - it’s probably due to their easy replacement system for winter / off-road wheels. Thanks to the easy removability of the front and rear wheels, I could fit two carriages in the trunk of my car, so I could travel even with my friend with no problems. I will stay with Bugaboo - even for a second child.

The ultimate stroller

4
  • for almost every terrain
  • quick folding
  • fully washable
  • easy to change its look
  • brake on the handlebar
  • fold is not in one piece

The ultimate stroller - it meets about a hundred criteria for an ideal stroller.

From the practical point of view, it fell short

3
  • Design
  • Basket size
  • Price
  • Basket functionality/accessibility
  • Folding

This is a beautifully designed, timeless, and stylish stroller - but from the practical point of view, it fell short.

The first disappointment was the moment when I went to buy baguettes - and I couldn't put those few pieces in at the same time (so I ended up putting it one by one). The basket is large, but the access with the bassinet on the chassis is almost impossible. Good maybe for a book or a wallet 😜

The handlebar is kind of loose - given the fact that it can be reversed. But the pushing with a reversed handlebar is truly an art to be mastered, and I couldn't.

The folding was also difficult for me. Later on, the folding mechanism was getting stuck, which was another problem.

I loved the bucket-type seat, but my son liked to be in it only when he was awake - he didn't want to sleep in it.

I seem unable to give it up

  • perfect manipulation
  • design
  • interchangeable hoods
  • great accessories
  • bucket type of seat unit
  • easily folding/ unfolding
  • all-terrain ability (with the sold-separately all-terrain front wheels)
  • spacious shopping basket that you can close with the pull-on strap (kind of like a bag)
  • access to the basket while using the carrycot

We are very satisfied - a perfect stroller. The only downside is the difficult access to the basket when we used the carrycot (but when I was loading something bigger, I simply tilted the carrycot a bit, and there we go). So, I got used to it, and still consider this the best stroller - and it would always be my first choice. I seem unable to give it up, even though we don't use it much anymore since my daughter is almost 3 years old.

  • Bucket-type seat unit
  • Lightweight
  • Compact
  • Many many color combination
  • Reversible handle - convenient changing of the direction even while pushing the stroller
  • Optional large front wheels for harsh terrain
  • None really
  • With the optional winter front wheels is the manipulation more difficult

Absolutely satisfied with this stroller. Although we used only the seat part, I don’t regret buying it. My daughter sat in the bucket-type seat comfortably and literally slept in it for hours. Reversibility and low weight are also big advantages.

  • we conquered every terrain, even a forest
  • large carrycot
  • a little too low to the ground - it is, therefore, a bit more difficult to take the baby out from the carrycot

The little one still sleeps in it in the garden. He is already 73 cm tall and still fits in the carrycot.

  • compact
  • lightweight
  • a great center of gravity = easy to get up curbs or stairs
  • long carrycot
  • cannot be folded with the seat unit clicked on the frame
  • hard to get into the basket if using the carrycot

A perfect urban stroller, usable even in a forest (since you have the possibility of switching to off-road wheels). Variable - large selection of color combinations. Bucket type of seat part - a huge advantage; my daughters, even when sick, could sleep in it for 2-3 hours, which was not the case if we put them in their bed.

Absolutely satisfied

Very satisfied

We were very satisfied with this stroller.

With this stroller I was satisfied the most - even though the folding is not the greatest. But it’s amazing anyway.

The best stroller in the world

  • handy
  • easy to handle
  • safe
  • no disadvantages

The best stroller in the world.

The best I ever had

5
  • Practical
  • Extendable canopy
  • Beautiful design 😍
  • None, as far as I am concerned 😊

The best I ever had 😍 My beloved one 👍

Lightweight and agile

4
  • Lightweight
  • Reversible
  • Price
  • Access to the basket with the bassinet

Lightweight and agile, bassinet part long enough, bucket-type seat unit. The apron covering it could be higher so that the wind wouldn’t blow in - I used to put the footmuff higher because of that.

The best stroller I had

5
  • low weight
  • easy manipulation
  • design
  • summer canopy, but also the all-weather, extendable one
  • more difficult to reach the basket with a carrycot in place
  • two-piece folding

The best stroller I had. Easy to handle, and despite the small front wheels, we could pass through more difficult terrain as well as snow. Extendable canopy and the summer version are a wonderful invention. Even though it folded in two pieces, I couldn't give it up for a long time.

Perfect, stylish

4
  • Many color combinations
  • Large rear wheels
  • Reversible handlebar
  • Telescoping handlebar
  • Large shopping basket
  • Smaller wheels in the front

Perfect, stylish. A lot of accessories.

Made out of high-quality materials

5
  • Spacious
  • A “designer” stroller
  • Changing of the canopies depending on one’s mood
  • Washable
  • Deep, protective canopy
  • Basket hangs quite low, and it is impossible to use it with the carrycot

We were the second owners of our Camaleon - bought it from the first ones used, but in excellent condition. It is made out of high-quality materials that, moreover, are also recycled. Nice design and easy handling.
