Quick lightweight and easy
Ive had the bee for years love everything about it its easy to open close light weight all attachments such as wheeled board cup holder are super simple to put together as for the washing of seat that also is very easy to dismantle and reassemble machine washable love it best purchase ever
I love this pram, it’s so easy to set up with a one piece fold. It’s easy to steer, the basket is a really decent size and can hold a lot. It’s really easy to carry, use and it’s held up really well. I use this for my 3 and 5 year old. They still fit really comfortably.
Really good if you only have a small car
Very light and easy to carry even for a woman. Easy to control with only one hand. We have a small car so this bugaboo bee is perfect for us. We can put this in the car also with groceries and other stuff. When come to places only with stairs (no lifts) I can still lift it up even with my baby sitting in it.
I have used other bugaboos and they where great apart from having it in two sections in a boot! So I went for this one as it is easy as to put down and set up and it stays all in one. But it is not good unless it is on a very smooth easy floor! Not the most durable of rough with as kids do.
Stylish, compact, light, easy to maneuvre, baby face forward or rare, many colours and designs to choose from, unique! Folds into one compact piece. I had some problems with folding and unfolding the pram, sometimes tje seat would fall while closing it, but I bought it as a like new secound hand pram, so may be the first owner was the one who cuased the fault. Very easy to resell online, because it was a very popular piece.
Light and sturdy. good colours available.
You can actually steer it with one hand.
The suspension springs are quite effective.
it is a bit heavier than it looks. it doesnt stand properly after you fold it. other brands like Redsbaby do stand after you fold it.
Does not come with a bassinet. You need to buy it separately.
Another downside is that it is difficult to unfold when the when the seat is facing towards you (rearward).
but it is good as an overall package.
The Bee 5 Rocks!
I purchased the limited edition Bugaboo Bee 5 and absolutely loved the colour combination. It's a very chic shade of taupe and lavender and works well for either a baby boy or baby girl. What I really love about this is that while it's on the smaller side, it's actually very sturdy (compared to other light-weight strollers like the Yoyo zen). I wish the handle was a little more like the Chameleon where you could swap sides easily so baby is either facing you or facing out but on the whole it's a great option if you live in the city or want a run-around hybrid stroller that can be used for travel and daily use.
This is my favourite pram I have tried by far. My baby loves that he can face me and it's very convenient to use with the toddler board for my older child. It folds easily and manoeuvres well. The only down side is that it does take up a considerable amount of space even when folded and accessories are fairly expensive to buy. That being said the quality is excellent and it will be used for many years to come.

Light, easy to fold with good quality
We were looking for a pram which needs to be light, not too big and easy to fold. After lots of research,reading reviews and trying different prams in shops we decided bugaboo bee5 which has all we want.Also it has been made nicely and comes in different colours for canopy, frame, seat and handle.
love my bee!
I really recommend the bugaboo bee. It looks stylish and has heaps of storage which is very handy. It took.some getting used to folding it but once you get your head around it..easy!
Its a bit heavy but its ok because i like its sturdiness.
It comes with a great add on bassinet which you must get and dont forget the cup holder! love it.
Best pram ever!
My bugaboo bee3 is the best pram out there! Its easy to fold, unfold and carry. I love some of the features this pram has to offer such as being able to choose what handle bar height i have espcially for a short person like myself, also love the fact my baby can fall asleep in the baby capsule and it becomes the main feature seat to my pram, i can customise my pram seat to any fabric i like and also love the cool attachments i can put on my pram such as snack trays, pram organisers, phone, cup,and drink holder and also custom pram hoods.
Can't even fold it away!!!
Not happy i purchased my bugaboo in Jan 17 and have only just started to use it with issues issues issues. I cannot even fold the pram to put it in my car to use it. The white button is faulty and doesn't go up. Considering I spent close to $1000 for this pram and the function to not be working properly is very frustrating having a 5 month old and not being able to use my pram what a joke. Quality Poor, can't fold!!!!
Lighter Pram And Easy To use
We had this pram for 6 months now, it is very light to carry around and easy to fold up. Good comfortable cushion for sitting & bassinet. Only drawback is that you need to buy a good canopy to protect baby from sun and wind. It can slide down 90% but there is still 10% left on it.
We have been using this stroller for our daughter for a couple months now and we love it! What I love most about it is that it is lightweight and space-efficient, yet still very secure and sturdy. For a petite mom like myself, I wanted a stroller that wasn't too bulky and I found it! We have brought it to all sorts of locations including shopping malls, parks, roads, grass, gravel road.. all without problems!

First pram I purchased as a first time mum and I am quite impressed with the pram. It looks great and love the accessories that can be purchased but are they very expensive! The pram feels solid, sturdy and is easy to maneuver. Baby loves to sit in the seat and always seems comfortable. It's easy to fold however the frame is quite heavy when carrying it into the car. I have a SUV but when the bassinet and frame are in the car -- it does take up most of the boot space. When unfolding the frame it is a little awkward as if it just 'flips' out and...needs to be rearranged properly when on the ground. When bassinet is on the pram - you can barely fit anything into the under basket. Perhaps the bassinet needs to be elevated more so you can reach into it and store things underneath. This function of the under basket can not be used when bassinet is in use.
Small, Light, Nimble & Comfortable
The perfect runaround pram. I use it in conjunction with my Bugaboo Cameleon, so depending on where I am going and what I am doing, depends on what pram I take. It's small, light and nimble but super comfortable and tough but the seat is surprisingly large and adjusts to my growing child. Folds easily and quickly for putting in the car or storing at home.

Great everyday pram
My wife loves this reasonably compact pram stroller as it is light and folds easily. Build quality seems good. Is at home on sidewalks, the shops and manages little bumps in the park well. We bought it with the bassinet (extra cost) which feels very secure. Very happy overall with our purchase,
Love my bee
The bee is a fantastic pram. We have the bee as a second pram (buffalo is our main pram) but the bee still gets a heap of use. It is so light and easy to fold, fits into the smallest of car boots and has a large shopping basket, for its compact size. We recently took it to the US where it survived 4 flights (in the bugaboo travel bag) and is still perfect.
BEST small pram! Perfect!
The best small pram I have ever used being my last child I decided to buy this pram second hand. It is easily managed with one hand to push. Lightweight and can seat child up to 15 kg. Simple to close and open with plenty of accessories to brighten and make the Bee your own. The bugaboo pram is fabulous in every way and I do not want my child to stop sitting in it as I love the Bee.
Excellent small stroller
I love how this is compact than the Bugaboo Cam3 & DOnkey. I travel with it, perfect for a toddler 1 years onwards as they just want to hope on and off. Its like and folds into one piece. I didn't like it for a newborn as its not as sturdy as the other bugaboo prams.
The basket is a great size, and fits into my boot with extra room. disadvantage would be not holding on my shopping /baby bag on the handle bar as it can tip.
Questions & Answers
My bugaboo bee3 2014 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?
