Bugaboo Cameleon 3 Review
The Bugaboo Cameleon 3 is a stylish and practical travel system designed to be flexible and scaleable.
The Bugaboo Cameleon has a premium design, we guess you could say it’s the Ferrari of the pushchair world. It’s designed to be multi purpose, and fits the job perfectly.
What does it come with ?
The Bugaboo Cameleon is flexible enough to enable colour customisation and accessories. You get a choice of base base fabrics, regular special edition styles. Bugaboo provide a 2 year warranty, under seat bag and rain cover. The under seat bag simply snaps into the frame, looking stylish and elegant and it also has the unique feature is being able to closed by a draw-string like mechanism.
The sun canopy is large and well covers the seat unit from the sun, and the included rain cover is great for any rainy days.
The fabric on the seat is easy to clean, and the seats are padded really well and adjustable, and it’s so comfortable (the kids often fall asleep in it). The included belly bar is foam covered for that bit of extra padding, and can unclip and swivel round to either let the child climb out or can totally be removed.
We love the carrycot and the ability to attach the car seat. The biggest bonus is being the ability to select if you want to face your child or give them an outward looking aspect.
With the 12 inch air-filled tyres back tyres and 6 inch lockable front swivel wheels, the Bugaboo Cameleon is easy to manoeuvre and has great handling as it simply glides. All 4 wheels are easily removable, and white buttons indicate which has a function. We love the fact that any button with a function in coloured white on the Cameleon as it makes trying to figure out what does what so easy!
The front wheels have adjustable suspension with 4 positions, making it easy to mover over tough terrain. The handle bar (which can be moved from 39 to 44 inches in height) itself are also reversible which enables the back wheels to become front wheels for forest like or sandy terrain. The Bugaboo Cameleon also has a 2 wheel mode, so is perfect for pushing over sandy beaches.
The brake is located on the side of the buggy, and clicks once to know when it is on. We liked the fact that the click confirmed it was either on or off.
The Seat unit has a 3 position recline, so is great for when your child wants a sleep. The seat is also reversible so can either be parent or outward facing, depending on how they’re feeling. There is a 5-point safety harness ensuring that you’re child is kept safe and secure. The seat unit can then either be changed to a car seat with the use of some adaptors (both sold separately).
The folding of the Cameleon is quick and simple. After removing the seat unit, white buttons located near the handlebars can be pushed and the stroller simply folds to the floor. It’s small and compact, and can easily fit into any small car boot.
