Bugaboo stroller review

In spite of the fact that I do not have children, I have always been fascinated by high-end strollers and somewhat dumbfounded by the fact that some of these items may cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

As a result, when my brother just had a kid, and purchased a Bugaboo Bee5 stroller. It is a new model that comes from possibly the most well-known brand Bugaboo.

In his own words, here is how this relatively compact model of the Bugaboo stroller, which retails for approximately $800.


This item has a very sturdy feel to it, and it has a really neat appearance. It is designed in a contemporary style that is streamlined and does not have a lot of superfluous frills or other stuff going on in its appearance. Although it does not have significant weight to it, it has a substantial and extremely solid feel to it.

When it comes to baby products, the vast majority of options are unattractive and come across as both cheap looking and feeling. Not in the case of this one. It has a really high-quality feel to it.

Also, despite the fact that it is light, it is not excessively light, if that makes any sense. It has a weight to it and the motion of pushing it is satisfying.

It’s likely already common knowledge among recent parents that Bugaboo strollers have a reputation for maintaining their worth exceptionally well. On eBay, an early-model Bugaboo may be purchased for an amount that will astound you.

Through the resale market, I wouldn’t be shocked if every Bugaboo that has ever been sold is still in use today. One reason for this is the brand’s long-standing reputation among parents as somewhat of a status symbol.

Although they are not inexpensive, I suppose using one is comparable to operating a motor vehicle. Although both a Kia and a Porsche are capable of getting you to your destination, the Porsche is clearly the more luxurious and expensive option.


The assembly was a really simple process. We did not get the standard crib, but we did get the optional bassinet. This bassinet is of the highest possible quality. This heather gray cloth is the one that we have.

The bassinet is a feature that we hadn’t planned on getting because the basic seat is ‘newborn suitable,’ but we find that we use it rather frequently. When it comes to a newborn, it is recommended that babies be placed on their backs in a flat position while they are in any place for a significant amount of time.

The bassinet, particularly when used during the winter months, offers a level, cozy area that our baby, for whatever reason, falls asleep in relatively instantly, as long as we continue to encourage it to do so even after it has been awake for some time.

Folding And Unfolding

It’s nice that the stroller doesn’t take up too much space. Due to the fact that the handlebars can be easily adjusted, even though my wife is a shorter person than I am, we are both able to use it effectively and find it simple to operate.

Additionally, I like that you can turn the baby seat around so that it faces either forward or backward and that it can be folded in either direction. There are alternative strollers that do not behave in this manner.

Once it is closed, the fold takes up a very small amount of space. Although it’s not the most space-efficient thing I’ve ever seen, it’s still really good.

Because it is also possible to unfold it using only one hand and one foot, this implies that you may, in theory, hold your infant in one hand while you can fold the stroller with the other; however, you need still be careful about maintaining your balance. That is the reason why I recommend parents to shop Bugaboo when they need a stroller for their kid.

The majority of strollers fold up using hinges, which is the standard method. This one is a little bit different from the others because it has a tendency to sink into itself.

However, while it only takes one hand to unfold it, it requires two hands to fold it back up again. When it is folded back up, the basket does not have enough room for anything in it.

Because of the one-of-a-kind folding mechanism, the basket needs to be emptied before the stroller can be folded up. In contrast, some strollers allow you to keep stuff in there.


This stroller is able to manage bumps as they arrive and is very comfortable to roll, especially for a stroller that is on the smaller side. This stroller is ideal for lengthy trips along the sidewalk.

It features a rather robust suspension system, which makes it incredibly simple to navigate over bumps and other obstacles of a similar size. It has a lot of travel for such a small stroller, but I’ve observed that traveling over larger bumps or barriers makes it feel a little off balance.

I wouldn’t go so far as to call it unstable, but it does feel a touch off.

Because it is, without a doubt, the most comfortable stroller I have ever used, and because the only time I experience this is with the 6-inch step up to the door on the back side of our house, of course, I am being ridiculously picky about this aspect of the stroller.

In addition, we discovered that the issue might be resolved entirely by going around the hump in reverse. In general, it’s a very nice stroller to have around. To tell you the truth, I have little doubt that some of our close friends are green with envy.
