Absolutely Worth it
We debated this purchased as it was $2500 for my 2.5 year old and new born and we weren't sure we would get the use but it is fabulous. So easy to use and to convert from single to double. It's a really sturdy walking pram and both my children sit happily in it.

The only double pram you will ever need
I wish I had just got this from the very beginning... But I have it now and that’s all that matters!
I love it, I can’t say enough good things about it.
It only weighs around 12kg. Easy to fold up and down. Easy to attach and remove seats.
Seats recline right back, easy to adjust straps, can face forwards or rear.
So so simple to convert from single to double and back to single.

- Donkey 2 Duo
Purchased this pram for getting around with 2 children (baby & 2.3 toddler) post C-section & ongoing issues with pelvic instability. Love that it is versatile - you can have 1 or 2 kids, 2 kids or 2 babies, front or rear facing. Easy to assemble & de-assemble (make sure you have practiced a few times before any major outings). It travels well on all terrain, is easy to push & maneuver, & height is adjustable for the 'driver.' Negatives are it's heavy (but all double prams are) which is not ideal for PGP, especially notable on any inclines, & the seats are not so tall for taller kids (headcaps can be removed for extra height at the loss of in-built shade protection).

Simple and parent friendly
I’m a mum of twin girls, my bugaboo donkey 2 is so easy to get them in and out of. The pram has no problem on paths or grassed areas, I’ve had no issues with the wheels of the pram. The suspension could be better but I’m happy with it.
My girls love the pram as much as I do, they will always fall asleep in it. I also love that the sunshade covers them up so well. There could be a bit more storage space there would be plenty if I had the basket with only one child but with 2 seats it takes away that option. Over all really happy with my bugaboo

Love it. Seats recline every angle, easy to push, light and easy to set up, lovely looking, fits through a normal doorway. Love this pram! Having 2 children close in age this pram is definately necessary.

If only the accessories were as good as the stroller
I bought this stroller when we had our second child and then we had a third so it's been in everyday use for several years now. Bought in 2016 and it's been mostly a brilliant stroller with a few minor disappointments.
Firstly the general quality of the product is excellent, and the versatility is really great. It has been used with a one seat, two seat and a one seat on bassinet configuration.
Although I highly recommend this stroller I cannot recommend all the accessories and would advise potential buyers to consider other brands that do si...mple things like cup holders much better. Here is a list of the accessories we've used and why they are (mostly) terrible. Since I've mentioned the cup holder I'll start there. It's truly a terrible cup holder. It's unique clip design means that it clips on the sides of the stroller very securely but there is no good place to put it. On the outside the stroller is suddenly too wide to fit through doorways and on the inside it's within easy reach of toddlers feet. I know, your thinking why not on the handle at the top, next to your hands, where it should be. Too bad it won't go there either thanks to it's inability to move on two axis. It's hard to explain, but trust me, don't buy one without asking to test it out first.

Great twin pram
At first I found this pram difficult to open and close, the clips were very tight and i struggled. after a few uses though i got used to it and found it super easy to use. It's is very easy to manoeuvre and the seats easily come on and off. My only issue is the canopy keeps coming off and i need to clip it back on.

Great but could be better
I had the bugaboo buffalo which I LOVED. It is the perfect pram(IMO). As I got pregnant with my second 5 months after my first, we decided to upgrade to the donkey2.
It looks awesome (I got the classic in grey melange with black frame).
It handles very very well.
It’s very strong and sturdy.
Storage options are good (when in mono mode the side storage is very useful).
The clips on the seat are very easy to use and adjust- even with a squirming baby.
The canopy is very large and covers almost the whole seat.
The recline options are good as my 11mth old still likes to lie flat and nap in it if we out and about....

Absolute lifesaver for twins!
We were very luckily gifted this by a member of family before our twins were born. Couldn't be happier with overall performance and if you can afford is definitely worth the extra money. A tiny bit heavy to lift in and out of the car but if it was lighter it would probably mean it wasn't as sturdy. All of the fabric components are machine washable which makes cleaning a breeze, it just takes a couple of days for them to dry. Feels nice and luxurious to push around and it steers extremely well compared to cheaper models. About to convert it to a...single with the basket attachment for my new little one which is due in a few months. Purchased a capsule which attaches to the pram for this time round to make life easier too instead of the bassinet. Oh and fits perfectly into the back of our Ford Mondeo station wagon.

Best Double Pram Ever!!!
I mainly use my Donkey for walking pram which is amazing.. the only problem if you do the fast walking.. its shudder alot.. I heard Bugaboo has way to solve this problem but I haven’t have time to contact them. It may take a few steps to fold and unfold.. to put in the car.. and I was like... OMG.. how to do those all steps!! But after tried so many pther double, I finally decided to bring the donkey on the car (its not so bad at all after you get use to it!) and I realised with donkey, my shopping times is waaaay much relaxing as both bubs hap...py and not fighting.. (the little one always grab his big bro when both facing the same way and its annoyed the big one, haha). The push such a breeze, my son is on its limit weight 17kg, my little one is 12 kg and I can push the pram with just one finger with both on the pram and the shopping bags. It’s not cheap but I never regret it. Purchased from David Jones and they also very helpful in term of claiming warranty.
EXCELLENT!! Best decision i ever made purchasing for toddler and newborn!!
Absolutely fantastic product! I have a 9 week old and 18onth old, i face my toddler outwards whilst walking and have bassinet set up on right for newborn! My toddler can see everything and my newborn can sleep peacefully undisturbed! I can also transfer her straight inside when sound asleep!
Sturdy, stylish and very comfortable! Very large so if you dont like large prams this isnt for you but feel best pram for double as i dont like the ones where babies are underneath or ontop of another child. This way they can both be comfortable.
One newborn is older i switch the bassinet into a seat like the toddler and face her either way to see outwards too!
very expensive but worth it!!!
- Donkey 2 Mono
This is such a great pram
I love my bugaboo donkey 2 it is such a beautiful pram, it is smooth to steer and I love that I can just extend it if I have another baby, love the range of colours and options there on this product, highly recommend to mums who want an extendable pram
- Donkey 2 Twin
I brought the bugaboo donkey 2 twin pram in February for twins. I do have trouble getting through some doors because of its width. It's not a pram you can take shopping, it is too large to manoeuvre in some stores, cafes. It is easy to steer though. I've developed muscles taking the capsules in and out of the car and clicking them into the pram. It takes up a large amount of space in the boot. It can be tough to fold up and unfold.
It was a massive purchase, over $2400. I tried to research the best prams for twins. I don't think there is a perfect pram. I would probably get the baby jogger city mini if I had my time again.
I'd consider myself a pram crazy momma, I have had over 20 different prams over the 11 years of having my 6 children. However after buying my bugaboo Donkey, it all stopped, I have not felt the need to replace it. It is exactly what I wanted all these years. Early days I couldn't justify the price of a Bugaboo, however after so many failed prams, I wish I had saved all that money and just bought the Donkey to begin with. Its light weight and probably the easiest pram I have ever pushed. I can still hold my younger daughter hand while she walks and push the other 2 babies in the pram. It fits through all registers and isles, and never had it stuck where I couldn't fit. Super stylish pram with everything you need.
Questions & Answers
We have been Bugaboo Donkey owners for around eight years. We love the mono and duo versions and found this pram so easy to convert. We upgraded to the Donkey 2 a few years ago ( dated 12/2017) but have found that we are no longer able to recline the seat. There appears to be a problem with the release mechanism. Is there something we are doing incorrectly?
Thanks for the question. It would be best to reach out to our service team directly as they can assist you with troubleshooting the issue. Their email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
