If labels make you happy, but prices let you down, the Bugaboo Bee may be an option you can't resist. Celebs like Matthew McConaughey, Gwen Stefani and Dave Grohl probably didn't bat an eye at the $530 price tag, but it's a luxury many of us can't afford. The attractive pushchair does have a fair number of sleek features that many parents find worth the investment.
Crafted by the same makers as the Bugaboo Cameleon, the Bee boasts many of its characteristics and makes a name for itself with some significant differences. To see what the "buzz" is all about,
Falling into the lightweight category, the Bee weighs significantly less than the Bugaboo Cameleon or Frog at 17 pounds. Much to my surprise, the Bee easily collapses in one fell swoop without having to remove a bassinet or toddler seat, making storage and lifting a cinch. The stroller, however, only comes with one seat, which is reversible, reclining and extend-able. For parents wanting to use the buggy immediately, there are adapters available for various infant car seats. After that, toddlers up to 37.5 pounds can enjoy the posh set of wheels.
Parents find themselves flying down busy streets with ease, which makes errand running efficient. The basket underneath the seat allows for ample storage space and easy access. In keeping with the stylish Dutch brand, the Bee is available in five fabulous fruity colors.
