    Pros .. Light .. Easy to use .. My girl slept so well in it .. Easy to wash .. Fits through small cafe with ease ..
    cons .. 2 parts .. Fold is kinda annoying .. Not great at all on gravel ( or off road ) ..

    Loved mine! I just gave it to my SIL

    pros: lightweight - bassinet great for newborns, pram perfect as a stroller and had 3 height adjustments (i used to use it as a high chair when we were out as it could be put totally upright and the handle turned around) it is rear and forward facing - accessories are great ( snack tray and foot muff a must!) - you can change colours - I'm tall and the handle is adjustable - it works well on all terrains - easy to clean -

    Cons - the only thing I would change would be the storage basket underneath could be bigger

    I love mine!! Sure the basket could be better but that's my only complaint. I've got a snack pod and organiser for it too.
    Love love love!!!

    Pros: With a 6ft something tall husband, the adjustable telescopic handle is awesome.

    By far and away the easiest pram (without being a stroller) to navigate through skinny and clogged up shopping aisles and very light weight.

    Easy to wash the covers and the myriad of colours is great if you feel like a change.

    Easy (once you know) to assemble and disassemble.

    Pneumatic tyres, so easy to pump up and nice and quiet.

    Cons: Comes in two parts which might be a pain if you are short on boot space.

    Not too crash hot off road, especially rough, gravelly surfaces.

    I love ours, it has seen 3 children from newborn in the bassinette right through to toddlers and has been an a dream pram. Well worth the $$$ I paid for it brand new.

    Just so you know the Bugaboo Buffalo comes out in Aus at the end of the month. Looks like the Cameleon but bigger basket underneath and offroad tires, seems they have addressed some of the Cameleon 'cons'

    I absolutely love mine!! We got it for a very cheap price on runout just before they brought in the 3.

    Pros:
    Lightweight
    Adjustable handle (another tall DH here!)
    Easy to manoeuvre around
    It's stylish (!!)
    Bassinet is great for newborns

    Cons:
    Takes up a lot of boot space
    Can be difficult to assemble before you get used to it
