FAQ - Bugaboo Donkey
You can find the serial number of your Bugaboo pushchair by checking the middle bar of the chassis, underneath the seat. Your Bugaboo Donkey has a unique serial number on the chassis and a different serial number on the seat frame. The base numbers (chassis and seat frame in the Mono combination) are joined by the Tag number starting with "X". You will find this number on the chassis itself and in the documentation that comes with your Bugaboo Donkey. These 3 numbers are linked, and all 3 can identify your Donkey. A separate number is assigned to the second seat frame if you have a Donkey Duo or Twin extension set. Whenever you need to contact us for queries concerning your pushchair, we advise you to locate the serial number or the Tag number as this will be helpful to identify your pushchair and assist you efficiently.

Both air filled and foam filled wheels are compatible with both versions of the Bugaboo Donkey. However it is important to ensure that 4 of the same type wheels are used. We do not recommend to use a mix of air and foam wheels.
With the many different configurations of the Bugaboo Donkey (25 seat positions possible), it is impossible to develop a rotating carry handle that will guarantee safe usage.
Clean the chassis with a soft towel and lukewarm water, then 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.
All the Bugaboo fabrics have their own individual care instructions. If you take a look on the inside of the fabric you will be able to locate a white label that has the washing instructions attached.

The Bugaboo Donkey is not designed to carry additional weight on the handlebar and doing so may damage the chassis and/or cause instability of the pushchair.
The Bugaboo Donkey 2 is improved on both performance and style. Changes include the capacity of the side luggage basket, the new side luggage cover and the many new colour options available. Other improvements include the introduction of foam wheels, an anti-shimmy solution integrated in the front wheel housing and a redesign of underseat basket.
No, the weight limit for children has not changed, however we have increased the weight limit for the side luggage basket to 10kg (22lbs).
The technical term is 75D knitted pique, a woven 100% polyester fabric that is soft to touch and has flexible properties without compromising on strength and durability.
The technical term is 600D Canvas, a 100% polyester fabric that has a more rugged look and feel compared to the 75D pique.
No, the apron for the Bugaboo Donkey 2 is now in the same material and colour as the carrycot for a more uniform look.
The apron is now part of the bassinet/carrycot fabric which now only comes in three colours.
Yes, the foam wheels can be purchased as a set of 4. However, it is important to ensure that 4 of the same type wheels are used. We do not recommend using a mix of air and foam wheels.
Consumer feedback was that regulating tire pressure and maintaining air-filled tires was not always achievable over the lifetime of the pushchair. We developed foam tires to replicate the feel of a perfectly-inflated air tyre without the possibility of punctures.
No, air wheels are not unsafe. The new foam tires are designed to look, feel and drive like perfectly pumped-up air tires throughout the lifetime of the pushchair.
Yes, the cover is treated with a water repellent coating.
The implications of updating the wheels to include wheel caps and chassis to include attachment points on the Bugaboo Donkey 2 would have impacted the product development and we would not have been able to bring you the Bugaboo Donkey 2 in 2017.
We updated the ‘front wheel housing’ (the part where the swivel wheel is attached to the chassis) with a construction that prevents the swivel wheel from shimmying at low speeds.

The Bugaboo Donkey 2 is the multi-purpose pushchair that’s ready for more. The name Donkey says it all: spacious pushchair storage means you can bring more along with you on your stroll. Keep the essentials easily accessible in the expandable side luggage basket and still have room to pick up more along the way in the expandable underseat storage basket. Plus, it can easily transform into a double pushchair for your infant and toddler.

As the seat frames are wider at the top (head) part, they do not fit between the handlebar when the seat frames are reclined. Therefore, we advise to keep sleeping children within view and thus reverse the seats to the parent-facing position.
This can happen when the adjustable tube of the chassis is not completely extended. Please ensure that you pull either side of the tubing before clicking/pressing the clips in place. Check out the demo on how to convert from mono to duo or twin - https://youtu.be/LtXzz-xe5eg

A puncture may deflate the air-filled tyres of the Bugaboo Donkey. Unfortunately punctures are not covered under warranty as they are not considered manufacturing faults but the result of external factors. Depending on the damage the puncture has caused, you may only need to replace the inner tubes. If there is obvious damage to the outer tyre you will need to replace the whole wheel. Click below to view Bugaboo Donkey spare parts.
Unfortunately it is not possible to purchase a complete Bugaboo Donkey Twin or Bugaboo Donkey Duo directly from us without the carrycot or apron.
A pressure gauge tool will allow you to check the pressure in the tyre (not supplied by Bugaboo).
Yes, the Bugaboo Donkey Seat Fabric including Comfort Harness is compatible with all Bugaboo Donkey pushchairs.
