2019-01-07 - An icon from the start, the Bugaboo Cameleon has been helping families get out and explore for more than a decade. In this journal, parents from around the world share their Bugaboo love stories and tell us why the original stroller is the one for them.
“Back in 2009 when I was pregnant with our now 9-year-old daughter, I didn’t need to do much research — I already knew it was going to be the Cameleon. I not only loved the look of it but the fact that it is so well designed and built. I knew we’d have it for the long haul and it’s the only buggy we’ve had to this day. Our Cameleon is still going strong after nine years with all its original parts, in fact, everyone is amazed when I say it’s the same buggy we had for our daughter. I love that we can fit our car seat onto the base, use it as a pram and later as a pushchair.”
“Although I knew about Bugaboo as a brand already (ahh Pinterest), I met the Bugaboo Cameleon in person for the first time via a friend of mine. It is indeed the best all-terrain option on the market. After reviewing all the different styles and colors I went for the all-black design that is perfect and goes with any outfit options ;) The Cameleon comes everywhere with us – we are always taking walks in the countryside, and in the summer we go to the beach. We just recently came back from our first trip since having baby Greta. Greta’s first flight was to Berlin! We chose to bring the Cameleon along because it’s compatible with our travel system.”
“Besides being super comfortable, the Bugaboo Cameleon 3 is cool, I feel I'm in fashion. I knew I wanted a Bugaboo Cameleon even before I got pregnant, lol. I wouldn't stop showing it to my husband in the streets and telling him: this is it, this is it! When I first saw the limited-edition Kite, I knew it would be ours. All my friends love Bugaboo, but now even the grandparents love it too :). One of our favorite hobbies is going out to take pictures when it gets dark. The landscapes in Northern Spain are amazing and perfect for that. Now, the Bugaboo Cameleon comes with us on every trip.”
“I first saw the Sahara special edition Cameleon online - the day it came out I went and picked it up, and that was six years ago now. This stroller is ready for any situation. It's not just beautiful, it's versatile too. Our Cameleon folds for our VW Tiguan and I can take the wheels off to take 3 kids and the stroller in our Fiat 500. I love how easy it is to remove the fabric for cleaning, the ventilated canopy for summer vacations, and the ride-on board is perfect for going out with our whole team. It really is true love.”
“We have had our current Cameleon for seven years, and three kiddos have laid in its bassinet, but it still looks like new! Our favorite function is the reversible handlebar, it’s so easy. When hiking uphill it’s a great feature to make sure the baby’s head is pointed upwards and not downwards. We also love all the different color combinations. With our first son, our Cameleon was beige, now our Cameleon is in black. That’s actually what we love most, all the different options to personalize and customize your stroller. We’ve traveled with our Bugaboo Cameleon quite a bit and thanks to the awesome comfort transport bag which is super easy and handy our Cameleon has always arrived in one piece.”
“After extensive research, I realized that the Bugaboo Cameleon was the best on the market. I also knew from other friends talking about how much they loved theirs due to its ease of operation and handling. Some of my favorite features are the fact that this pram is the only one to date that my husband can operate, without referring to instructions all the time! The most exciting place we have taken our Bugaboo too would have to be interstate to Sydney and Melbourne and an overseas jaunt to Singapore!!”
“It was love at first sight. The Cameleon stroller won us over with its unique design, lightness, functionality, comfort and high quality. For me, as for a mother, one of the most important features of Bugaboo Cameleon 3 is its light weight (especially, in comparison with strollers of other brands). Moreover, it is so cool that all fabrics are machine washable. The Bugaboo Cameleon 3 is our companion in all adventures, wherever we go – to the beach, to the mountains or to the woods. This stroller is really maneuverable and performs really well on every type of terrain.”
“We first met the Bugaboo brand in 2013 when we bought the Bugaboo Bee+ for our daughter. I knew then that if we could have another baby, we would a pick Bugaboo Cameleon. Despite the fact that we waited almost seven years to have another baby, the Cameleon was and still is the best stroller on the market. When compared to other strollers, the Bugaboo Cameleon is very lightweight, which is I think its greatest advantage. I love how easy it is to fold, even its storage is excellent.”
“It was pretty straightforward, I walked into Bugaboo store in Amsterdam and fell in love with all of Bugaboo’s strollers, but especially the Bugaboo Cameleon. Once I got back, I told my husband, “Honey, the stroller for our baby is going to be a Bugaboo.” My husband is quite tall in comparison to me so it’s really nice to be able to adapt the handlebar to our respective heights. Also, I use the under-seat basket a ton as it can hold so much (a mom always leaves the house prepared for any possibility).”
“The Bugaboo Cameleon came into our life as we were waiting for our first daughter to arrive in this world and we were moving from Latvia to Denmark. I was searching for something that would not stop us from exploring every day. I heard about the Bugaboo Cameleon where good design, light weight, easy maneuverability and durability is rolled into one amazing stroller.”
