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).
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 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....
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!!!
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.
Excellent sturdy pram
This pram is very sturdy and manoeuvre is great, the seat belt straps are very good quality and easy to push.. even for our 5 year old. Only thing is that we find it is a bit tight to have both seats reclined to the full 180 degree sleeping position with the canopies attached, so we have detached those, the pram still looks really good even without the canopies. We have the all black version.
I purchase this one for my second baby cos it can use for two baby. It is quite good but i still like the icandy peach 3 more than this one. The design look better but the storage is not good than peach 3 . It had small storage so it not good for shopping . But it good that you can carry 2 baby and it not that heavy to push.
Love getting out and about with my donkey
I upgraded from a buffalo to a donkey when our second baby came along. I love being able to use it in mono or duo mode depending if I have one or both of the kids. I also like the flexibility of being able to click on the capsule or use the bassinet for longer trips out. I wanted a side by side but didn’t want my newborn facing out so the donkey was the perfect choice. Easy to put together and push but it does take up a lot of boot space. Build quality is fantastic and I love the stylish fabrics (I have grey melange).
The only negative is the seats are quite small and shallow so my toddler will outgrow it before I’m ready.
