Was good but didn’t like basket

3 out of 5, reviewed on Nov 02, 2018

Was pretty good off road.
Suspension was good especially because you can change the suspension according the the babies weight.
Bub was always very comfortable in the pram
I did however get rid of it after only a few months as I did not like the basket I found it extremely hard to get shopping into

No problem
I have been in store and had a look at the new cameleon that has just been released and it is exactly what I wanted in the original cams. If I ever have another baby I know the new bugs will have exactly what I want

Over rated?

3 out of 5, reviewed on Oct 02, 2018

It looked very good so I had to buy one. Everyone told me it was the best. I admit it’s a smooth ride, but it’s heavy, doesn’t fit in my car, the sun canalopy is useless. I had to buy another pram. I found the additional accessories were expensive, so I never bothered to buy them.

Lightweight, folds easily, fits anywhere.

5 out of 5, reviewed on Sep 21, 2018

I purchased this pram because it was one of the lightest prams and is compact and folds easily. When you have a screaming new born, the last thing you want to be doing is spending 15 minutes trying to put your pram in the boot.
The pram is easy to use and you can put it away very quickly with two steps. I took this pram with me to europe and my son ate in it when we were out and about. The pram got very dirty and i had to wash it twice, the quality of the material is great and everything came off, the pram looked brand new.

There are two things that are annoying about the pram and i hope that they fix it for future releases. The first one is that the pram doesn't lock when you fold it which means when you are getting it in or out of the car it goes all over the place unless you place your hand on the bottom and top folding bars. The seance is the bag that sits underneath. It feels like you can't get much in there and again when you fold to put in the car everything falls out because the bag doesn't sit upright. Someone at bugaboo please fix this.
Despite those couple of improvements needed everything else about the pram is 5/5. Its versatile reliable looks great and very durable.

Great Pram but not perfect

4 out of 5, reviewed on Sep 18, 2018

This pram is great, very study and durable. Baby enjoy sitting it there. It is a must, not to bulky. It is manageable when you out by yourselve and your baby. The wheel is very smooth in every condition. The downside is that the accessory are too expensive, like one cup holder is $40

We're glad we spent the extra money

4 out of 5, reviewed on Sep 01, 2018

We spent quite a bit of time investigating the right stroller before the birth of our son, travelling to baby stores across Sydney. We were initially settled on an iCandy or Stokke, but found flaws with both that we just couldn't live with. When we spent some time with the Bugaboo Chameleon 3, we both agreed that it offered the best balance of functionality, quality, style and safety of all the products we'd looked at.

While the Chameleon 3 is by no means perfect (more on that later), it's a real head turner. Let's face it. That's a big part of the decision to buy a Bugaboo over other brands. We bought a limited edition in navy with brown leather trim. Later, when we changed from the bassinet to the seat, we added a sky blue breezy sun canopy to break up the navy and now it's even better looking.

The stroller is not petite or light, but that means it's very sturdily constructed. It was immediately apparent that the product was built to last while I was putting it together. We also have the peace of mind that we're backed up by Bugaboo's excellent warranty and customer care.

In terms of features, there is not really much in the way of innovation, but for us that is secondary to practical requirements such as quality and safety. What it does, it does well. When the handle is reversed (so the larger wheels are at the front) it can handle surprisingly rough terrain. We wanted the flexibility of having a stroller that could handle urban and off the beaten track environments equally well. The lockable smaller wheels and adjustable suspension provide a greater degree of customisation to suit multiple applications and cater for a growing child.

But while the Chameleon 3 is fantastic, there are definitely some frustrations that could be address in a 4th gen. Unless you have strong hands, the brake system is not easy to manage one-handed. There is a real danger that it can very quickly snap back and wrap you on the knuckles. There must be an easier way to implement this while maintaining safety standards. Possibly with a squeeze trigger to release? The basket underneath the seat is very difficult to access and quickly becomes a source of annoyance when you need to quickly retrieve something to pacify a screaming toddler. It's also an awkward concave shape that limits what you can practically store under the pram. The sturdy construction comes with a trade off on weight making it a challenge to put it in the boot of a car with anything but an empty basket. We've also found that the cup holder is was very poorly constructed. The inside attachment that holds drink containers in place had very flimsy lugs locking it into the main component. These broke fairly early on and we were certainly not rough with the product.

Having lived with it for 2 and a half years now, we're very satisfied with the Bugaboo Chameleon 3. Despite the small flaws, it is a high-quality product that well and truly justifies the price premium over a cheaper product. We look forward to a few more years of happy use.

Perfect for my bub

5 out of 5, reviewed on Aug 29, 2018

Easy to manoeuvre, has this heavy duty feel easy to fold ( so far using my isofix capsule with it or the bassinet as my bub is 4mo old only)
My bub loves it n has no complain.
Bought this item last boxing day from baby bunting on sale.. i can say worth our money

Stylish and easy to manouvre.

4 out of 5, reviewed on Aug 01, 2018

The bugaboo is a great pram. Its easy to open and close aswell as moving around in tight areas. I feel the only critisism I can give is the under basket could be a bit bigger. The colour choices are exceptional and the ability to switch from forward facing to rear facing is just what we needed.

Good recommendation by babyshow we bought one

4 out of 5, reviewed on Jul 27, 2018

We just had our first child and before brith went to one of those expo shows and this stroller was demoed. Loads of bad reviews but we got it because it's a lot stronger than anything else and we do a lot of bumping about where we live and wanted to get this because it should last longer!

5 out of 5, reviewed on Jul 15, 2018

Love my Bugaboo. Bought one during babyexpo in Sydney. It is very sturdy and easy to maneuver. A bit heavy for small frame person like me but still manageable. Everything is perfect except that it would be a bit hard to bring it around if travelling overseas/ on a crowded train.

5 out of 5, reviewed on Jun 29, 2018

We only have a small car so needed a pram that would fit the limited boot space. This pram was perfect for the job and our Bub loves being in it. The pram handles very well apart from on grass or gravel as it can get really bumpy. The handle is a really good length aswell

Traded up

4 out of 5, reviewed on Jun 21, 2018

At the disapproval of my husband we traded up to the Bugaboo Cameleon from a lesser known brand as was simply too cumbersome to operate with 3 other children in tow. Mother duck felt like a truck license was previously required to operate which can confidently say is not the case with the Bugaboo. Easy to operate and stylish as well I am quietly enjoying telling hubby "I told you so".

Worth every cent ... and more!

5 out of 5, reviewed on Jun 19, 2018

This pram can easily be manoeuvred with one hand. It’s easy to use, folds with little effort and it looks great. Ours was used for two children and has now been given to a relative for some more love. The bugaboo is also very easy to keep clean and the additional holders for the maxi cosy were a great and well loved addition. No complaints about this pram!

Sturdy but bulky

4 out of 5, reviewed on Jun 12, 2018

This is very good pram. very easy to maneuver. i had this for 4 years. when I have baby number 2, I don't use this as much because it takes a lot of space in the car and take more time to set up and pack down. I also don't use this for travelling (by plane), as it has two components and make it hard to pack them.

Great pram

3 out of 5, reviewed on Jun 06, 2018

Great pram but can be a hassle setting up and break down of the pram - having to detach the seat before collapsing the frame is annoying at times when in a rush.
It’s easy to manoeuvre, however it can tip if you have shopping attached on the handle bars with a pram hook and you lift baby out of seat.

Good sturdy pram but don’t hang anything off handle bar

3 out of 5, reviewed on May 29, 2018

Easy to manoeuvre and great suspension , but heavy and bulky to put in car or travel, fold in 2 pieces , known problem mechanism on chassis /frame can brake easily so the handle won’t lock into place! Repairs and parts expensive! Replacement chassis is $480. Reconditioned chassis $280 , only place in Sydney can repair is pramsafe brookvale however couldn’t repair it ! Repair would of been $150 but as couldn’t repair it wanted $55 to put the pram back together without even repairing it! Very disappointing

The Best Buy!!!!

5 out of 5, reviewed on May 05, 2018

The best pram that I could ever have. Tested many others before making final decision. Easy to manoeuvre, practical and the most important light so while being alone with a child you can easily manage and load it / out of the car. The deign is great while having bugaboo tu will not need another one. While started with an maxicosi capsule that can be easily attached to the pram so there was no need to carry baby from pram to the car, while waking you can use bassinet and while Bub gets bigger additional stroller/set attachment .

After doing a lot of research we decided to buy this pram for our new baby and we couldn't be happier with our choice. The seat is large enough to fit a 3yr old and the pram is so easy to maneuver. It folds into two pieces but we don't mind that at all. The quality of the pram is pretty good and it's very steady. Overall we are very happy with our choice and highly recommend it to everyone! :)

My newborn loves his pram, super comfy, amazing turning circles and is super easy to use. It is very easy to fold up and not too heavy to lift into the boot. My partner and I love the different colours that you can choose from and the different attachments. We will keep this pram for several years and hopefully for bub number 2 :)

Hello. I have a Cameleon 2. I would like to know if theres a difference between Cameleon 2 and 3 in the connect bars on the side where we fix the canopy/ car seat adapter. I need a car seat adapter for a Graco Click connect car seat. The only one i found wha the Nuna Pipa but they say it only works with Cameleon 3... please help. Thanks

Stéphanie asked on Nov 30, 2018

Answer this

Hi Stephanie,

Thank you for your inquiry, both the bugaboo cameleon 2 and 3 use the same car seat adaptors. Unfortunately we do not have a car seat adaptor in Australia which is compatible with the Graco car seat.
