    I should clarify because my post makes it sound like we don't use it anymore!

    We bought our Bee when they were first released in the US, in September 2007; almost five years of constant use later, I still use it almost every day, and it's still in fabulous condition .

    I have a cameleon and absolutely love it, although the bee sounds amazing too!

    Don't know if you know, but there is an improved cameleon coming out in September

    I have the cameleon, there are pros and cons for me.

    Hubby HATES it!!

    Pros:
    Easy to steer
    Rear or forward facing bub
    Looks nice
    Nice storage basket

    Cons:
    Hate the two piece
    Heavy
    HATE going for walks with it, it gets bogged a LOT coz of the small front wheels.
    Really hard to push on grass, gravel etc

    Also we had a VW golf and the boot is a decent size but the pram would take up my entire boot and I had nowhere to out my grocery shipping. I'd have to put in on the back seat, front seat, on the floor behind me etc. nightmare!!

    We have had to buy a bigger car now, Nissan xtrail for the boot space.

    I'm about to sell it and buy a bee. I think I'll still have the wheel issue but at least it's one piece and lighter/smaller

    Thanks so much for this ladies! Our car is a Mazda 3 but I just can't see it being in the car that often with our lifestyles. I'm leading towards the Cameleon because I know that if I can't walk around with it (footpaths only) then I won't go walking at all, and trust me, I'm going to need some exercise when all this is done

    I checked out the Cameleon 3 online. I was hoping it might have a true one step fold, but you still need to remove the seat first. Only difference is that you don't need to click the handle back before you kick up the pram. Since Baby Kingdom is selling Cameleons online for $1,089, but pre-ordering the new one for $1,399, I didn't think it was worth $400. If it could fold without removing the seat I might be tempted.

    The Bee is just such a perfect size though! Maybe I'll win the lottery and buy both... sound like a plan?

    I was looking at ebay, but it says on the Bugaboo site that there are heaps of fakes going around. I have no idea how to spot a fake so I'm nervous about ebay!

    Really? Oh well I'm about to sell mine on eBay.
    But I would think only buy off ppl that obviously look like they're selling from their home in the photos.

    The ones you need to look out for are the new prams from overseas that look too good to be true. They are .
