    Ah right. Cool.

    FWIW we used our Bee for some offroading and it got walked about 5km a day for a year over some fairly uneven and changing terrain and it still looks and feels as good as new.

    If we have another child I don't think we will bother with our Cameleon and will just use the Bee.

    Peach! Had it for 2.5 yrs and I love it! So easy to steer and easy to fold. Don't have a bad thing to say about it. New version coming out too.

    I think the new cameleon will be easier to fold up/down and have slightly more storage... Just what I've gotten from their press release.

    A friend has a cameleon and she hates it for anywhere but on the footpath, she said it is terrible to steer 'off road' but not sure if she has tried it with the big wheels first.

    Having said that I am still in love with it
    DH hates the look of the stokke but I think it's awesome!

    Just thought I'd say that I have an iCandy and i love it!

    We live rural & I take it for walks where we go across paddocks, gravel etc & its superb.

    The turning circle is great & steers really nicely & it's not too wide for shopping!

    I'm another one who would recommend checking out the Bee. It's smaller, lighter, niftier, one-piece fold, cheaper, and will do you from birth to toddler. It may have small wheels, but they don't puncture and the suspension is surprisingly good

    What color did u get? I would love pink!!(if I have a girl!)
    How do u find it on different terrains? What do u use for storage? Can u buy extra storage? If u put a bag on the handle does it tip?
    Sorry for the million questions haha

    I used to nanny and used the chameleon- even though it's marketed as an "off-road" pram, as the PP said, it is a PITA to steer using the bigger tyres. In the slightest uneven terrain with the small wherls in front, the front wheels get caught. It is not great for taller kids either. And although it is light, it takes up a lot of room in the boot. It is lovely to use in shopping centres, even footpaths etc though. I now have the bee and although i wouldn't take it on rough terrain or running, I have no other complaints! And suitable from newborn to a large toddler.

    I love my chameleon but it's terrible on anything other than standard surfaces, especially when you put big wheels first it's very hard to go in a straight line, wobbles around and drives me crazy, now I avoid using it "off road" so very annoying
