Good pram, not blown away
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.

The best investment I ever made
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!

Love it! Easy to use
Beautiful pram. Easy to use and manuever.. easy to customized by changing the fabric color.. such a head turner.. had tried few diff prams in the past but this one stayed on our family . Wheels are fom solid as well

As everyone knows it's expensive which isn't a problem but it is when after 8 months the steering gets tough and hard to steer!!!!
Isn't good for all terrain only good for flat easy surfaces!
I feel as though my first one 7 years ago lasted much better and longer then my new one!

This is our 3rd option for a pram and we wish we bought this from the start. Amazing pram for our boy and have all the attachments. Easy to pack away and store in the boot of a car. Highly recommend

Great customer service. Got replacement for broken wheel and Chassic
Bought it as my sister was raving about it. It was great for new born baby as included bassnet. The tilt function, long cover, rain cover, reversible handle..etc...the unique design and functionality was great. Once baby turn to 2, I was using less and less as it feels bulkier and the disappointment started as the hinge on chassis was getting loosened and one of wheel got cracked. Hence my satisfaction score was getting lower and lower. Also headhood was hard to remove, still cannot open the zip. Few days ago, finally I tackled these issues wit...h bugaboo before 3 year extended warranty expiry date. I am blown away by smooth, seamless process by bugagoo customer service (Rachael). They replaced the parts straight away after video, photo evidence. Job done well.

All the bells and whistles and attractive to boot
For our first baby we wanted to buy a top-of-the-line pram, and I'll be honest, it had to look good as well. As pram newbies our criteria was simple- can we fold it down with minimal assistance from the sales representative in store? The bugaboo cameleon 3 plus won the battle.
Although there were some other options which were easy to fold (some even with a one-hand fold), the cameleon actually attracted us with its two parts (the bassinet or infant fabric, and the pram base). This was because as a fairly petite female I found many of the one-...fold prams too heavy to lift easily. The cameleon 3 plus is a solid, well-made product. It was the newest version out when we purchased it at the beginning of the year, and there were a lot of competitive pricing deals on as a result to promote the upgrade. The entire pram can be configured in many different ways, and very easily- the handle can be flipped forwards or backwards and the bassinet/seat chassis attached either way. This is achieved by pressing handy click-in buttons on the side. This also means that you can have the larger wheels facing forwards (for any "off-roading") or at the back for traditional setup. I believe the suspension can also be adjusted, too. It has performed well taking to the shops or out on walks on the footpath and occasionally on the grass. The bar across the bassinet/seat also clicks off to the side for easy removal of bub. I felt very secure taking my newborn out in this pram as she had a fully-flat bassinet she could sleep in (which could be detached when we were visiting friends as a portable bed), and the canopy can unzip to fold very far down giving a lot of protection. She fell asleep easily in it, and is also comfortable now we have changed to the seat chassis (which can also be laid flat if desired so baby can sleep-again, a simple button adjustment at the sides). Minor issues but not dealbreakers: 1. With the bassinet attached, it is quite difficult to store much or access the basket at the base- I believe this has been somewhat improved since the last model but you still wouldn't fit much in there 2. The bassinet does take up a lot of space in the back of a hatchback. It can be collapsed, but is a bit more effort and I wouldn't routinely do it. However, once changed to the seat chassis it takes up a lot less space. 3. After collapsing the pram, there is no way I can find to "lock" the components in place so the base doesn't fold itself open again when you lift it up. This is easily rectified once you know to grab several of the bars at the same time when lifting.

Recommend this item with great experience.
Fantastic pram if your starting a family, comfortable and safe for your child great suspension no need to pump wheels,
Bassinet and seat covers attach to the one frame you won’t have any bulk pieces laying around only fabric.

Style over function
I'll be honest i bought this pram because the pink bassinet mode was just too adorable and it was super popular based on reviews and i thought i couldn't go wrong. I really didn't know what i even needed in a good pram back then.
It is a perfect pram for a newborn. I loved it!! DD looked adorable and random people in the shopping centre commented on how beautiful the pram was! The bassinet is easy to use and can be used off the pram base if travelling and washed if desired. With a newborn I was off work and had plenty of time so...

Has something no one else has!
The pram isn't cheap, let's be honest here, but you do get what you pay for. I like that it comes with a bassinet and seat attachments and the build quality is very good. It is very easy to move and not too heavy. It does take up some room though in your car when using the bassinet.
The up and down side of it are from the same part....the brakes. This was actually a selling point for me. In all other prams, they have a foot brake. This one has a hand operated brake on the right side of the handle. It was a selling point and up side as in all o...ther prams when holding the bar, it was impossible to see the foot brake without bending down to see it. The down side to it. It is very tightly sprung. There is a release button and if you manage to press it in (although it takes some effort) it flicks back painfully on your hand. It is recommended you take the strain with your other hand and press the button to release it and move the lever back slowly. It is annoying that really i need to use two hands and it does seem that a simple engineering fix could solve this issue. Maybe turn the brake around, pull back to engage rather than push forward. Releasing the would go away from your hand rather than towards. Also, back off the tightness a bit. You can still lock the wheels without so much power. Overall I would recommend but look for a sale. Accessories are also very expensive, for example, $50 for a cup holder! For a piece of plastic with no extra features, it should be closer to $5 if anything.

Could change a few things!
This pram is beautiful, especially considering you can change the colour of the canopy. My baby was comfortable in the bassinet, and has recently moved to the stroller. Besides the straps being a bit to high (they sit around her ears) she is quite comfortable in the stroller also.
Only downfall, hard to use the underseat basket with the bassinet.

Love this pram!
I have the Bugaboo Cameleon Classic and absolutely love this pram! My little one is still in the bassinet, which is so handy as they can sleep when you’re on the go.
The pram looks great and the inside lining of the classic is lovely, always get lots of compliments.
It’s easy to push, has an excellent turning circle and the handle bar is extendable.
Cons for this pram are that it is bigger so not one I’d recommend for air travel. You also need a decent sized car boot!
I’ve also purchased the bugaboo wool bassinet liner to make it softer as I personally thought the seat was a bit too firm.
This pram is amazing! I am 6ft and the handle adjusts quite high, so it is a good fit for tall people. It is really easy to steer. Once you know how it works it is all smooth sailing. I purchased mine from baby bunting and the sales assistant did a fantastic job of showing me how it all works. The handle is also very smooth and feels nice to push. It is a fairly large pram but we have a large car so this isn't an issue for us.
Highly disappointed in my bugaboo Cameleon purchase!!! Bubs will not sleep in it cause her feet are raised up higher than her head in the lying down position, for the stroller attachment. It is the dumbest design and i would never recommend to anyone!! Really disappointed customer. The basket space underneath is hard to get to as well,
The best pram on the market.
This pram is a dream to push even with unfavourable terrain. The suspension is so spongy it creates the most comfort for my daughter. The seat itself is so spacious for my daughter to grow into and she loves going in the pram. The best purchase I’ve ever made. The only negative I can think of with this product is the space it takes up when folded, however it still fits in our tiny corolla so isn’t that much of an issue.
