Grandparents dream PramCameleon 3rd Gen
What an amazing pram, so easy to push and move around the shops, light weight, easy to put up and down and get into the car. My granddaughter loves it and sleeps so well in it.

Long lastingCameleon 2nd Gen
I got this pram as a hand me down and it looks like new. No one believes me that it's second hand. Such great long lasting quality!
I like the suspension and easy maneuverability. I can navigate it with one hand easy. We used the bassinet for our newborn and bub loved his pram naps. All terrains. Now that he's grown out of it, I really enjoy using the seat and that you can change the recline so easily. I'd prefer a foot break over a hand break but that's just my choice.
Good design but very questionable build quality and gear components.Cameleon 3rd Gen
I think the design and concept is great. We have the turtle car seat and the chameleon 3 pram. It's easy to fold the pram and getting bub in and out with the turtle is a breeze.
Unfortunately, the central locking joint on the Chameleon 3 chassis has failed after only 5 months. This means that the handle bar is wobbly, loose and flexes excessively.
The central locking joint is just a small plastic gear with two (very small) plastic pins (I have attached an image render of the part). So, only four very small plastic pins hold the handle bars... Read morein place and they are prone to failure. We have just had our chassis replaced under warranty (to Bugaboo's credit), but we have been told that we can't pull the pram up and down stairs and that nothing can be hung from the handlebar as this would not be "correctly using" the pram. Note: Bugaboo sell an organiser bag which is specifically listed as being compatible with Chameleon 3 and have numerous photos on their website of prams going down stairs and being tilted up over gutters. But you aren't allowed to use it as depicted in the images. I'm grateful that the chassis has been replaced under warranty, however, I can safely say that we have been very careful with the pram up until this point, and it has only been used for 5 months before breaking. I just don't think it's good enough.
This is the perfect Pram!!Cameleon
This pram is absolutely perfect, it is compact, easy to fit in the car! It's very light, so easy to get in and out of the car. It's also extremely easy to push! And comes with so many amazing accessories! Would definitely recommend!

Great maneuverability, storage not so great!Cameleon 1st Gen
Very easy to use, assemble, push on all surfaces and, get in and out of car. Takes a bit more room in the boot than other brands. Light weight, but others are lighter. Comes with a bassinet option for up to 6 months (depending on your baby’s size). Storage room beneath pram while bassinet is on is minimal. Slight improvement when bassinet option is removed and seat is used. Comfy in both settings and child can use still at least 3.5 - 4 years.

Great Long Lasting QualityCameleon
Received this as a hand-me-down after if was used for my two nieces. Currently in use for my second child so has held up to use by 4 kids. People are shocked when I mention it's a hand-me-down. It is still in perfect working order, easy to clean and once you get the hang of folding it up/deploying it it's an excellent pram/stroller. Not as light as others on the market (although there are definitely heavier ones). If you want something to last for years to come it's a great investment.
Not grandma friendly !Cameleon 3rd Gen
No doubt this is a quality product BUT in my view it is over engineered . Having to pull the seat out in order to fold it and get it in a car is not easy and cumbersome . My preference would be the old technology - one press at the bottom and everything folds . It’s not car or grandma friendly that is for sure .
Good pram, not blown awayCameleon 3rd Gen Plus
Moves easily on grass, can steer the pram with one hand, which is very helpful. The brake isn’t easy to use. I wish it was a foot brake.
The fabric on the hood creases very easily and crease marks stay visible when hood is drawn.

Bugaboo CameleonCameleon 3rd Gen
I love my Bugaboo Cameleon 3. The turning circle is great, dad loves doing donuts and zipping round the house during lockdown. The I love the wheels, the ability to power through different terrain really makes a difference. We live in a hilly area and compared to other prams on sloping hills this one is a breeze. The bassinet is longer than some others on the market which came in handy for us, because bub was so long. The three different seated positions come in handy once you transition to the seat. The canopy extends ensuring the sun is out o... Read moref bubs eyes but it can be a little flimsy when bub begins playing with it. To make cleaning easier you will want to get a liner. But everything generally comes off and fits in the washing machine. Now the only down fall... It's not compact. I could fit it into a Getz, but it wasn't easy. Plus it folds in two, a single fold is ideally what I wanted. But overall this has been a great pram.

Best pram I have had.Cameleon 1st Gen
This pram has lasted me over 3 years for 3 children and I got it second hand.
It handles a lot of different surfaces really well, it feels very smooth to push unlike my other prams! I like the fact it has really noticeable suspended it really helps a lot and my children all love this pram. I would give full stars if the baby bassinet attachment had a harness but otherwise perfect pram.

Love it!Cameleon 3rd Gen
Good sized pram, easy to push and is a smooth ride. The hood is a great size, the bassinet is great and bigger than a lot of other bassinet prams. Love all the different colours you can get. I purchased this 2nd hand but it feels brand new! Great quality pram!

The best investment I ever madeCameleon 3rd Gen Plus
I was so hesitant to buy this pram due to the price tag but I am so glad we did. We used this pram so much when my son was young we jokingly referred to it as our car. It was worth every penny and I would definitely purchase one again if we ever needed to. Highly recommend!

Great all rounderCameleon 3rd Gen
After a lot of trial & error in the first couple months we finally settled on the Cameleon. You could say I was a pram addict, but I was really just trying to find one that suits everything I needed & a lot of prams would suit one thing but not another... the Cameleon suited mine & bubs every need. I love the 2 piece fold as both parts are light. By far it has the lightest steering can push with one finger & turn on a dime. Can't rate it more highly. If I could find just one thing wrong it would be that my bubs grew out of it too quickly at about 2 & a half years old.

Well worth it!Cameleon 3rd Gen
I kept seeing bugaboo pop up in recommendations but I was very much daunted by the price however I am now completely satisfied.
I know it’s superficial but it looks really good. Less like clunker on wheels and more like a stylish convertible. Strangely important when it’s hard to get dolled up as a new mum.
The tires aren’t filled with air so they don’t puncture. I have friends with prams and this happens to them. Not to me.
The fact that it’s so easy to take apart is immensely helpful. The white button system makes it so e

ExcellentCameleon 3rd Gen
This pram was well worth the price. Easy to use, strong, safe and reliable. I used it sever times a day and loved the features. Additionally the add on features such as cup holder etc were an extra luxury. My child loved being in it. To add resale value is great. Mine was in mint condition and sold in days.

Questions & Answers
I have a chameleon 3 and am wondering if the seat will click into the chassis of a fox 2 or buffalo ?
I'm after a replacement bumper bar. Are all the cameleon bumper bars the same size/compatible with different models?
Hi team, we have a Cam 3 and find the under basket too small, I have seen in other chat groups people commenting that the buffalo under basket will fit the Cam3, can you please confirm if it is interchangeable, and is it much bigger than the cam 3 basket thanks so much
