FAQ - pushchairs general

  • How do I best protect my child against the sun while riding in a Bugaboo pushchair?

    The breezy sun canopy provides extra protection and ventilation during warm weather days. Its silver fabric offers UPF 50+ sun protection while the fine mesh allows for cool breezes. For additional coverage, add the Bugaboo parasol and your own preferred methods of managing your child’s exposure to sun.

  • Can I remove the wrist strap from the handlebar of my Bugaboo pushchair?

    The wrist strap is there for the safety of your child. In some countries you are legally required to use it, and Bugaboo recommends you wear it at all times. Please note the wrist strap is not available as a spare part and once removed, cannot be replaced.

  • When should I switch from using the carrycot to the seat?

    The carrycot is suitable for a child who cannot sit up unaided, roll over and cannot push her/himself up on her/his hands and knees. The maximum weight of the child in the carrycot is 9kg (20 lbs). In practice, this will be when the child is roughly 6 months old.

  • Can I use the carrycot in my car?

    Bugaboo is aware that in some countries, it is common to use a carrycot in the car. The Bugaboo carrycot is not designed for that purpose. For that reason and to ensure the utmost safety of your child, Bugaboo advises using an approved car seat instead.

  • I want to take my Bugaboo pushchair on a plane. Is it easy to travel with?

    Most airlines will allow you to push your child in his or her Bugaboo pushchair to the gate. There, you can fold it into its most compact and easy-to-handle size. The airline staff will place the pushchair in the general luggage compartment of the plane and will deliver it to you as you exit the plane at the end of your flight. Please contact your airline for specific information. If you need to know the folded size of the pushchair, please visit the compare page. 

    Bugaboo recommends using a transport bag for extra protection and checking in the pushchair as odd size luggage. This minimizes the chance of damage to your Bugaboo pushchair. Check here for information on the Bugaboo transport bag.

    Your warranty is not valid for damage sustained during air travel, with or without the transport bag.

  • Can I place the rain cover and the sun canopy on both the carrycot and the seat?

    Yes, the rain cover and the sun canopy fit both the carrycot and the seat of your pushchair

  • Can I recline the carrycot, similar to the seat?

    Bugaboo does not recommend it. Your child will likely slide down or experience an uncomfortable ride if the carrycot is in a slanted position. If you use this position, Bugaboo cannot be held liable for any incidents.

    VELCRO® is a registered trademark of Velcro Industries B.V.

  • Why should I buy a seat liner?

    The reversible and breathable seat liner keeps away unwanted moisture allowing your child to enjoy a more comfortable (additional padding) and dry ride. The seat liner is available in many colours and fits all Bugaboo pushchairs.

  • Are all Bugaboo accessories compatible with all Bugaboo products?

    Universal accessories fit all Bugaboo pushchairs. Bugaboo also offers accessories especially developed for a particular model. Find out which accessories are available for your pushchair in the dedicated accessories section of each pushchair on this website.

  • Why are there both elastic loops and a sleeve on the back of the footmuff?

    The footmuff fits all Bugaboo pushchairs. When using the footmuff with the Bugaboo Bee, the elastic loops fasten the footmuff to the seat. When using the footmuff with other Bugaboo pushchairs, the sleeve is used to attach the footmuff to the stroller seat. For detailed instructions on how to attach the footmuff to your Bugaboo pushchair, please refer to the user guide which came along with the product.

  • How can I clean my Bugaboo pushchair?

    Clean the chassis with a soft towel and lukewarm water and wipe off any remaining water with a dry cloth. Use a soft brush to clean sand from the mechanisms and sliding tubes of the frame. To clean the foam on the handlebar, please use a sponge, warm water and liquid soap and gently rub the area that needs to be cleaned. Wipe clean any soap residue left on the metal part of the handlebar.

  • Is it possible that my pushchair will leave marks on my floor?

    It is possible that on floors such as synthetic laminates, parquet, linoleum and carpet (organic surface floors), rubber black tyres may leave permanent marks. Should you have a floor as mentioned above we recommend to be careful with indoor usage.
