    Default Bugaboo Donkey Vs Bugaboo Cameleon

    I am having trouble deciding which one, i love them both!

    I love the wheels on the donkey & the larger seat and also the extra storage basket on the side!

    BUT I also fell in love with the limited edition black framed deep purple cameleon in baby bunting.

    What do you think?

    I think if you are planning of having another baby soon then go the donkey. otherwise I prefer the cameleon (I have owned both of these prams). The donkey I got for a double pram and I love it. However for just one baby I would go cammy as the donkey is extremely heavy to lift into the boot and very bulky when folded. Although having the 4 larger wheels is handy......but even though the donkey has the 4 pneumatic tyres it is hardly an off road pram. You can reverse the handle bar on the cammy so the larger wheels are in the front if you need to go off road.
    As far as the larger seat on the donkey goes, the seat on the donkey is actually narrower. But maybe you meant it is taller? They both seem much of a muchness to me.
    Good luck with your choice!

    I have the cameleon and LOVE it and I've seen that purple.....where was that a year ago bugaboo I say!!!

    But we are about to upgrade to the donkey cause we are TTC #2 and if the donkey was out a year ago, I would have purchased it instead, just to save on buying 2 prams!

    But if you really want the purple and possibly upgrading in a few years, the bugaboos do sell really well on eBay. That's what I'll be doing soon.

    if you want kids close together get a donkey. if you only plan on one or on a larger age gap the camy is great

    This is my LAST baby so there will be no more babies after this!

    I did some research and found i can actually buy pneumatic tyres to replace the smaller front wheels, major plus as this was my main reason for wanting the donkey.

    Cameleon it is

    My friend got the bugaboo cameleon last year and 2 months later the donkey come out. I was like 'haha i'll get the buy the donkey' but guess what, I ended up getting the cameleon anyway and not because of the price but because i dont plan on having another baby anytime soon and the cameleon seat is bigger and more comfy. also wife prams are a real hassle at the shops.
