Mercedes of strollers!!

I purchased the fox cub after extensive research and conducting physical comparisons with other top brand name strollers. I needed an all terrain stroller with a reversible seat. The new bugaboo uses thick and hard wearing fabrics, has an ergonomic seat and the best steer and manoeuvrability of all, with robust suspension in its frame and wheels. You have to push it to believe it! This fundamental design edges out all its competition who try to sell their larger baskets or marginally easier fold. Getting a bugaboo is like buying a luxury car with an amazing engine.

Perfect Compact Stroller

I am so happy with my Bugaboo Bee6 and so is my daughter. I love the push with the bigger wheels and the all wheel suspension lets me get through the city streets with no problem. The seat fabric is more breathable and has a more elevated look and I really love the peek-a-boo window on the sun canopy! We really love that you can fold the stroller super easily with one hand, it is great for when I have to hold her while closing the stroller and for grandparents who sometimes find that one hand is stronger than the other. The built-in stand is really a great touch since living in a condo space is tight and it helps keep the stroller out of the way.
