    Have had this pram now
    For 3 years and still going very strong.
    Very handy and easily changeable rear and forward facing options.
    Comes in many nice colours.
    Easy to clean. Canopy extends to ensure full coverage and protection from cold and sun.
    Have the option of adding a buggy board and the cooler canopy.
    Pitfalls it is a bit heavy for its size and not very compact. Steering handle would have been better if it had a bit more height to it. Rocky rides die to small wheels on uneven terrains
    Excellent customer service they quickly exchanged a part which was faulty.
    Overall great buggy although does not come cheap.

    We push chair is really nice built and well-designerd. It will work for you if you are more of a city person, as difficult to push in the muddy parks

    I had high expectations of this pram, I really liked the cameleon and was after a smaller forward facing stroller so naturally I we went with the bugaboo bee and it was an expensive mistake the prams aren’t cheap but knowing that it was money well spent with the cameleon I went ahead and brought. Folding the pram super easy getting the pram back up is a bit of a struggle, okay if you have smaller feet though. It felt super heavy when it came to lifting the pram and wasn’t as smoother ride as prams was with a cheaper price tag. The hoods on bugaboos are always a bit flimsy but on the bee they are super flimsy. Overall I’d suggest trying out a few different prams before making an expensive decision to then not be happy like me.

    This is hands down the best buggy on the market. It’s a perfect city stroller and is convenient and small for any situation. The storage space is a bit limited, but definitely worth the buy.

    Although it seems quite sturdy, the product would be better with bigger wheels as can be restrictive when travelling on pebbles streets and uneven ground. It can be easily folded and fits into smaller cars which is great.

    Love my Bugaboo Bee! Couldn’t decide between this and a smaller, cheaper buggy but so glad we chose the Bee! Great for use in the city and countryside and baby is really happy in it!

    Use the bee for my daughter 6 years ago and now using it for my now. Goes up and down in seconds. So lightweight and the best thing is it's so narrow you can get through smaller gaps (in particular between cars in car parks!) Wouldn't have any other pushchair.

    I love my bugaboo bee! Living down a norrow road with a far few bumps this, stroller is just perfect. I don't drive so it's great for public transport but also folds up pretty small for my husband's car. Love the fact that the seat can go flat if the baby falls asleep whilst on the move. Yes, it is a little pricey but I don't feel ripped off. Also love the fact that you can change the hood. I have a little collection already!

    After lots of researching for a smaller folding pram that rear-faced, I choose the bee over the others on the shortlist due to being happy with our other bugaboo. I have found the seat spacious an extendable seat in both ways. Our 2 and a half year old who’s tall has plenty of growing room. The seat feels sturdier when world facing as it rests on the bars underneath. I love the large sun canopy and that it lies flat so can be used from birth. The basket isn’t very big but it’s a compact city pram. It feels sturdy to push and pushes easily on normal terrain ie street paths/ shops. It’s quite expensive as you buy all the parts separately this can be addictive as want to change colours etc.

    This is amazing, my little girl is comfortable in it and it’s fantastic for running about town and in and out of shops. It fits in the boot with ease, despite us having a boot that could only be described as it being designed for the borrowers. It looks great and my almost 3 year old has had a whirl and even he fits in it!!
  • 4.38/5
    • Strengths:

    Love the pushchair, price ain't cheap, but you do get to choose all different accessories, the stroller is lightweight and pushes and steers very well compared to other pushchairs, smooth ride, fits really well inside small boot as well, I would prefer if it was closed in a bit more around the side as my babies hand feels like it's just dropped on both sides of the pram and I'm scared incase they get hurt or if another pram brushes against close by, as I don't have a carry cot and that's for small babies, either then that happy with the product

    This pram is so lovely, we have the khaki colour with silver handle. It’s lightweight and easy to manoeuvre. It folds up and down so quickly and it’s so easy to change the seat to face you or the rest of the world. It’s easy to find lots of information online about this pram and what car seats are compatible with it- I loved this about it as it made it so easy to choose a car seat. I love this lightweight pram- ideal for city living.

    I bought this pram as it was recommended by a friend. I love the stylish look to it! It’s essy to put up and down (once you get the hang of it!) it fits into the boot of my fiat 500! The only negatives I would say are the fact that the wheels at the back could be bigger and it is heavy for a smaller pram. Other than that I love it!

    I love my bee!
    It’s great from newborn and is available in all different colours
    Few negatives - I’m short so it’s the perfect height for me but my husband sometimes struggles with it, also the basket opens from the front so when kids are forward facing you might get kicked in the face begging your shopping in and out but other than that. Its fab!

    I bought the bee 5 a couple of months back because I wanted to try it for my one year old daughter, I was so excited over it at the time, but after buying it I was left dissapointed I've found the pram tips when you go round a corner or up high curbs so isn't suited to my needs. Lovely pram other wise. I'd recommend it for someone who doesn't do a lot of walking.

    I really love our buggy - it’s perfect if you live in the city. It’s small frame makes it ideal for wheeling around shops and narrow pavements. It is light so easy to get in and out of the car. We live in a narrow Victorian house and it’s good for getting in and out of the house and fits a space under the stairs perfectly! I hadn’t thought about having a buggy in the house all the time before we bought this buggy but I’m so glad we didn’t go for a larger one that we’d be tripping over all the time.
    Downsides are that when you pack it down the seat has to be taken off - not a big deal but I’d prefer to have one that stayed all together for ease!
    Also sometimes if I have lots of heavy shopping in the basket it can be a bit difficult to steer! Also not a buggy to take on bumpy country walks but we tend to use the sling for that.
    However I think in the main this is a great buggy for urban areas and small houses! Really pleased with our choice.

    We got this buggy after a lot of research and viewing a few in store. The turning circle is excellent and it is generally perfect for city living especially if you are using buses. as it is slim. The basket underneath is not large but you generally only get large ones if you have a large clunky buggy. The basket can fit in a lot of shopping if you pack it right particularly when the seat is facing towards you. We got the cot with it but baby hated it and would not settle. We then realised we could just have gotten the cocoon that fits the seat as this works for newborns and my baby loved it. The seat lies almost completely flat which is huge selling point. We used it sometimes with our Maxi Cosi car seat and the two fit well together. Great accessories with this buggy like cup holder, cover for air travel and high performance rain guard. I would recommend looking for second accessories as there are a lot online to choose from. I would definitely recommend this buggy.

    Love the bee 5. Have the carrycot and also car seat adapters so this grows with your child and it doesn’t feel like a travel system and is a lot smaller. So easy to push and lightweight. Folds small so if you have a small boot like me this will probably fit in. It is a one part fold with the seat on means no messing around having to take the pushchair apart. It can be either world facing or parent facing which is a brilliant feature depending on what your child prefers.

    There are some aspects to this buggy which are fantastic, hence why it is so popular.
    However, unfortunately i think it is incredibly overpriced at £350+, then additional hoods/accessories are also very overpriced.
    It is a good design but it’s not built for strength.
    The bars are thin and feel flimsy.
    The manoeuvrability is the biggest selling point, it is slim, lightweight and easy to move.
    You need 2 hands and you have to push a button whilst pulling levers to fold down and you have to have the seat forward and the base un clicked too. It’s a faff folding it and it doesn’t fold particularly small.
    It has easy fit adapters for car seats and an easy fit raincover.
    The handlebars aren’t great for holding bags/buggy organisers because they don’t fold out anymore and so items just slip down.
    It’s very low to the ground compared to other buggys, which can be a positive in certain situations, like when sitting on a park bench (closer to baby) but also a negative, when passing past the back of a car thats on, baby is closer to the exhaust fumes.
    The hood is fantastic, covers baby totally in very sunny weather.
    The cacoon is a very unique design, attractive to the eye and looks super comfortable for newborns.

    This buggy is great, we don’t have a car so I needed something that would go onto buses easily and if needed be folded quickly or carried down flights of stairs at stations. It has been great for all of those things. It is small so it can nip through spaces other buggies can’t. My only complaint is that the basket is quite small and not very easy to access. Lastly my son is about to turn 3 and he has outgrown the buggy now ( he is not particularly tall) so we will sadly have to move on now.

    The bugaboo bee may be a little pricey when we purchased it, but it truly is an easy pushchair to use. We found it easy to steer on the bumpy streets of Paris. However, we did find the push chair a little heavy. But, if you have another person with you to lift it up.and down stairs, you should be fine.
