FAQ - Bugaboo Bee
Please contact our Service team to identify the model of your Bugaboo Bee stroller. You will be asked to provide your stroller or part serial number if available.
Check what is covered under stroller warranty. If you’re unsure if your stroller is still under warranty, please contact our service team with your product’s serial number.
If repair is covered by a valid manufacturer’s warranty, Bugaboo will bear the expense and risk of transport from and to the retailer where you purchased the product. The manufacturer’s warranty is not transferable and may therefore only be invoked by the first owner. Contact our Service team with questions about strollers no longer under warranty or finding your nearest retailer with a repair center.
Yes, the Bugaboo Bee Seat and Bugaboo Bee Sun Canopy fabrics are machine washable while the Bugaboo Bee Pram Body fabrics are hand washable.

The Bugaboo Bee Baby Cocoon is a soft, flexible accessory which needs to be placed on top of the flat lying seat unit. In the Bugaboo Bee Baby Cocoon, your child needs to be secured in the harness. The Bugaboo Bee³ Bassinet clicks on to the chassis instead of the seat unit, offering your child a safe and comfortable ride without the need for a harness. For questions about using your Bugaboo seat unit, the Baby Cocoon or bassinet, please contact the Service team.
