Friday Face-Off: Bugaboo vs. Bugaboo

CAMELION VS BUFFALO

Clockwise from the left: Cameleon and Buffalo

This week we welcome two different Bugaboo models to the ring: the Cameleon and the Buffalo.  Let’s meet the contenders…

THE BUGABOO CAMELEON!

The Cameleon3 is Bugaboo’s iconic stroller: 3 terrain, 3-in-1 design, 3rd generation.  And we can see why people love it.  Weighing in at 21lbs, the 3-in-1 design easily adapts to car seats (with a variety of adapters for a variety of manufacturers), the reversible bassinette, and the reversible stroller seat.  Watch as it takes on the city with it’s smaller swivel wheels to the front; marvel as the handle bar pivots around to hit the trail with the large foam wheels forward to take on rough terrain; and stand in awe as it transitions easily from four to two wheels to take on snow and sand.  The seat and bassinet (independent and included) both flip easily to allow your child to face you or the world.  The easily accessible hand break allows you to stop on a dime and the handlebar is height adjustable to allow for easy, one-handed steering.  The foam wheels in conjunction with adjustable swivel wheel suspension in 4 positions makes the Cameleon live up to it’s namesake easily taking on a variety of environments.

THE BUGABOO BUFFALO!

A newcomer to the scene, we’re excited to invite the Buffalo to the ring.  It’s optimized for robust use, allowing you to put up to 13lbs of weight on the handlebar without the stroller tipping, 50lbs in the seat, and 22lbs under the seat for a combined weight of up to 80lbs.  You can also attach the wheel board at 31lbs and be ready to go.  Of course a stroller this robust doesn’t steer with one hand like the Cameleon, but it still swivels smoothly and is ready to take on any terrain.  This stroller has a more outdoorsy family in mind.  It has the largest seat of the Bugaboo models and it’s four foam wheels are prepared to provide a smooth ride in any environment.  It also has an extended canopy for extra protection against wind, sun, and rain.  It can fold up in one piece for garage/in-home storage or in two pieces to more easily fit in the car so you can get out and go.  The seat reclines to allow the little one to sit up straight when awake, recline when relaxed, or lie flat when fast asleep.  We also love the height-adjustable handlebar that offers a greater range of heights than ever before.

Shine Bright Like a Diamond

We’ve got gems galore from Mini Rodini this season!  Now we know that technically diamonds don’t shine, they reflect; but because they’re reflecting the sheer awesomeness of your kid’s style we figure we can get away with the phrase.

Friday Face-Off: Vista/Cameleon Smackdown!

VISTA VS CAMELIONClockwise from the left: Cameleon and Vista

Let the stroller games begin!

IN THIS CORNER: THE UPPABABY VISTA!

One step fold with or without seat attached, watch this stroller seamlessly transition between positions for easy travel.  The completely interchangeable bassinet and seat come included to keep you covered from birth to 50lbs and the easy to read red to green attachment indicators make switching a breeze.  The “no-flat” rubber and foam wheels guarantee a smooth ride no matter where you roll and the arched rear axle means you won’t be kicking the stroller with every step.

AND IN THIS CORNER: THE BUGABOO CAMELEON!

Keeping you covered from birth to 37.5lbs, the Bugaboo Cameleon’s classic silhouette is the king of convertibility and weighs in at just 21lbs.  The 3-in-1 design adapts to car seats, the reversible bassinette, and reversible seat with ease.  It’s also easily car seat compatible with a variety of adapters available for a variety of manufacturers.  Start your day in City Exploration mode with the smaller, swivel wheels facing forward for a smooth, stable, easy-to-control ride!  Watch as it easily switches to allow you to Hit the Trail simply by reversing the handlebars so the large, foam wheels are forward! Marvel as it converts into a two wheeled stroller for snow and sand!  The reversible seat allows your child to face you or the world in one of three recline positions: flat for naptime, semi-upright for relaxation, and fully upright for when they’re wide awake.  The adjustable suspension in four positions allows you to optimize the ride for a baby or for a toddler.  The Cameleon also features an easy on /off rain cover and an easily accessible hand break.  All fabrics are durable and machine washable so you can clean them as often as you need to without worry.

So, ladies and gentlemen, take your seats, lay down your bets, and hit the comments section to see which of these two excellent contenders takes the title this week!

Dressed to the Nines

Be dashing in the snow this winter in this gorgeous velvet tux from Mini Rodini.  We love it for special occasions or for making every day occasions a little bit more special (Hey, if I’d had this as a kid, I don’t know if you could have paid me to take it off.  I love it!).  Seriously, we can’t talk about how lux this tux is enough…
