Lovely and very stylish
We have just graduated to this and it is a dream to use after the uncomfortable piece of nonsense it replaces. My parents took pity on me (lol) and got this as a much appreciated gift. Folding it away is where this really shines. It such a well designed system and I have it in the boot in no time and I love having bub looking back to me - great design and easy to steer one handed!
Every feature i was looking for
A fantastic pram that i really cant fault. Lightweight and very compact fold which is great for my back. Great for a newborn all the way up to using it like a stroller for an older child. Beautiful to push and the quality is outstanding as always with Bugaboo. The only fault in my opinion is the price, alot to pay for a pram but well worth every cent.
Great choice for mom
I have been used it for more than one year, I'm very happy with this product. It's so convenient and not heavy. Very easy to fold and unfold. I can carry it easily and place it in my car back space. I will introduce this to my friends. Such a good one.
Okay for smaller child.
I got this pram for my first baby and used it with the bassinet for the first few months, then with the seat up till my son was around 7 months (I sold it after this).
Keeping it simple..
- small pram, great for shops/cafe’s that don’t have much room.
- folds up small, takes up very little space in the boot.
- pram is super light weight.
- smooth ride in metro areas (smooth paths, shopping centres etc).
- seat almost fully reclines.
- hood is extendable and provides excellent coverage.
Wonderful... Convenient size
So easy to set up and pack away. I have a big fancy mono pram but it is heavy and time consuming to set up and fold down but the bugaboo bee is the complete opposite and I can still clip my capsule into the seat for added convenience when out and about
The best pram
This is the 3rd bugaboo I have purchased, the bee has always been my favourite pram. It is so easy to get in and out of my boot as it’s light weight. I have no issues getting it down Isles in the shopping centre and maneuvering through crowds. It folds down with the press of two buttons and is very compact so fits in the boot easy. I am very happy with my purchase and recommend the bee5 to anyone looking for a new pram!
its such a perfect little stroller to take for quick trips to the shops. its light and very well made. only downfall is that everything extra is so expensive. other then that i have no complaints for it. i wish i would have bought it the pram from the get go.
I love my Bugaboo 3! We have had it for a little over a year now and I would buy one again and again! It folds/ unfolds so easily and I love that it is a compact pram with the ability to have the seat switched between facing parent or not.
I also find it fantastic that the canopy can be switched between a range of other colours on the market if you start to want to change the style of the pram. It is definitely a pram made for urban use as it struggles to move over bumps in the terrain so that's probably the only thing consumers should keep in mind.
I wish I had this pram from the get go.
We purchased this second hand off gumtree in good condition. A quick scrub and service had the pram looking like new. While in reality, it is really just a glorified stroller, it is very sturdy for it’s size.
It is very easy to manuvre around the shops and holds a surprising amount of shopping when you add storage hooks. While I did not use them, the option is there to add either a bassinet or an infant cocoon to make it suitable for a newborn. You can also get connectors to attatch a capsule which ...is awesome. I like that you can extend the seat length and height as your child grows, and you have the option to have the seat facing in or out. The handle goes up and down and clips in very securely so no issues with the bar slipping out when on travellators. It is really only suitable for city life due to the small wheels, but it suits our needs perfectly.

Easiest pram I have ever owned
The best pram I have ever owned, so light weight, was very easy to fold, one fold motion, very easy to maneuver as it was so light weight yet very sturdy. I would recommend the bee 3 to everyone if I could. Even better you have endless amounts of hoods to pick from to make your pram even better.
Stunning - Super light - Super Smooth
super cool - super light and just smooth glide very happy to buy this Stroller / Pram.
mother is happy because its light - baby is happy because beautiful canopy covers her fully, dad is happy because its safe.
strong breaks and easy to open and fold - even if you have rear facing seat.
close your eyes and buy it: If suits your budget
Not worth it!!!
I have the Bugaboo Bee for almost 3 years. I was never 100% happy with it as it is a bit hard to change the sit position, the bassinet is too small and doesn’t look very stable. After one year the problems started getting worse and I had to take to get serviced 2x as we were not able to adjust the height of the handle bar. More recently the front part of the pram broke down. If I could go back, I would never buy this pram again...way too expensive for what I get
- Bee 5
- Verified purchase
This is the best purchase I’ve ever made!! I never write reviews, but I had to come on and write this one as I wish I saw this before I purchased my cameleon. I previously had the bugaboo cameleon but sold it as the 2 piece fold was inconvenient.
This one swivels easily, can push with one hand with ease, folds in 1 piece and is easy to fold and open, is decently compact, sleek design with lots of different fabric/colours. Honestly if your tossing up between this or the cameleon, go the bee 5. The only regret is that I didn’t purchase this ear...
It's light & looks great
Its 360 and super light - one of the lightest pram that we found on the market. It also folds into a great compact size where we fit it into our sedan easily with plenty of rooms for other groceries. My son didn't mind staying in the pram for the whole duration of shopping/ coffee until he grew out of it after 18 months.
After having bub number 2, I decided to opt for a much lighter pram and one that is easy to maneuver. I fell in love with the bee 5 with the new range of denim seat fabric colours and how you can pick and choose your own chassi, sun canopy and wheels. I like that it is easy to fold up and pack away in the boot. It is not too bulky compared to my older 3 wheel pram. Also very easy to get around in shopping centres. However, given price and quality of build I still find it is on the pricey end as it is only really designed for one purpose for mor...e indoor shopping use and on smooth surfaces. I still need to keep my 3 wheel pram as backup. i have taken it out on train ride to city, outdoor walking to local cafes and found it doesn't get very far on rocky surface conditions!
This simple, intellegently designed pram is great if you have issues with space in the boot of your car, travel loads or just don't want a heavy, wide berthed pram to have to try and navigate through busy city streets or the shopping centre. Easy to fold, unforld and carry. My only little thing is it's difficult to spin the seat position around from front to back the first few times you do - there's knack to it
Can live without it!!!
I never thought about buying a bugaboo in fact I secretly laughed at people who did for spending so much money on a pram. One meeting with other mothers where one of them brought in a bee changed my mind forever. I was in awe seeing how sleek it looked and how small it is making mine look like a clumsy beast. As soon as hubby came home that day I announced that I was getting one too! The bee 5 is out but mine is a bee 3, you can still get one on the bugaboo website from their outlet store! My baby (3mth old) can sleep in it for HOURS. I love ho...w it can be parent or front facing and has so many recline positions. It's small size is a huge plus - I can walk around inside busy shops/cafes quite freely which I couldn't do with the previous pram. the bugaboo bee is so simple to fold, sturdy, functional, yet relatively light. It is the perfect city pram I love it!!!
It is comfotable
It is easy to control and push, it is very comfortable for baby sit and it is easy to close and open, the colour are lots of to choose, and all of them are beauty, one more nice thing it can be connect with a chair to sit for another child
Great for city life
Very easy to fold and move
Best bugaboo because it's 1 piece and has withstand a few overseas trip.
For new born I would recommend the cocoon to make it more comfortable
It's been discontinued but it's still a good choice....bee5 has gone more up market and the price is dearer
Perfect for city living
The Bee is robust and compact. It is easy to manoeuvre around the city and still strong enough to carry all of your groceries. Folds away easily for car, home or dining out. Good amount of storage space below (in use will impact ability to fold). High quality build like all bugaboo products. Definitely recommend!
Questions & Answers
My bugaboo bee3 2015 model seat height always falls down? Am I doing something wrong??
Can any of the bee5 seat, bassinet and capsule fit on other bugaboo chassis? Are there special adaptors to cater for this?
Is the Bugaboo Bee 5 baby cocoon compatible with the Bugaboo Bee 2010 model?
