    This pram has been a dream to use, quite simply it has been put through its paces from sub zero temperatures in Finland and the Alps to warmer climates in France. I have used the same pram for both my children (eldest now 4) and they have felt nothing but safe and comfortable, the dark fabric on the infant bassinet is soft and soothing and the 6month + seat 3 recline positions mean that baby can sleep comfortably as well as have perfect views either forward or rearward facing. Even with a perfectly upright mode which means feeding on the go is a possibility. We invested in the high performance footmuff and the two interchangeable covers mean we can be prepared for varying temperatures without concern. The hood is far reaching with an extendable section for those sunny days it can be pulled right over to shade baby. The only minor complaint would be that access to the shopping basket under the pram is limited whilst in the infant mood de which may not suit many who require walking with large amounts of shopping- the capacity itself is generous but there is only a small gap to access, this issue does go away once baby is 6 months and the basket is fully accessible for the majority of its use ie up to 4 years old. On a recent trip to Disneyland we were able to use the same pram for our 6 month old and even when our 4 year olds legs needed a break we could pop her in with very little adjustment so that she could get some rest. The pram folds in two pieces which can make travelling particularly on aeroplanes a bit daunting but we have never had an issue. Overall a very reliable and versatile piece of equipment that is well worth the investment.

    Brought this pushchair back in December for my new born which he was born on 06/05/2018. He absolutely loves it so much room to lay in super easy to use. Comes in so many different colours which is great! Highly recommend!

    I absolutely love my bugaboo. When my son was newborn, the carrycot was very comfortable and safe. It’s a lightweight buggy, very easy to steer if your out shopping or pushing in the woods. my Son is now in the seated position and he loves it. He loves looking around.

    • Strengths:

      Looks amazing! The pram top is spacious and so is the seat.

    • Weaknesses:

      Not eat or quick to fold, large so storage is an issue.

    I love this pram and despite the weaknesses, I would always recommend it, if you have the budget. Firstly the carry cot is spacious, so much so I kept my first baby in it until she was 8 months old! The seat is a lovely size too and can be mummy faced or forward facing. I have had to buy the seat liner and foot muff too but most can be picked up second hand as they are such good quality. The quality of the pram is amazing although there was a fault with my chassis and this was replaced no questions asked by bugaboo and that shows the great customer service. I love the accessories that can be bought with the pram too and have made lots of use of the cup holder and the car seat adaptors. Recently I’ve had a third child and now we have the pram seat attachment which means we didn’t need to get the double and this works perfectly with the pram and can be taken off easily when I only have one of the kids with me!

    I love this buggy! I think it’s great that you can change colours if you wish and they sell adapters for car seats to click onto the frame!
    Feels lovely to push and my son seems very comfortable in it (currently in the carry cot).

    Although so after purchasing the bumper bar snapped and parts can be expensive if the warranty has ran out.. I also have a problem with one side of the handle clicking into place.

    I would still strongly recommend though, hoping this are rare faults.
  • 4.25/5

    All around a brilliant pram from a popular brand. The pram is perfect for anyone as you can customise it with different hoods and liners. The seat unit is a large one which can easily seat a child until they are walking meaning you will only need one pram. Pushing this pram is a dream in all terrains.

    I love my orange bugaboo and receive a lot of compliments on the appearance. Its easy to use and even the Grandparents use with ease due to the colour coded functions (if its white it does something).
    When it snowed recently I switched the handle over and walking to school in the snow was easy!

    I absolutely loved this pushchair/pram. It was so easy to use. To change from baby pram to a toddler buggy took me about a minute. Incredibly smooth to ride and that was the one think that I miss in my everyday little stroller. And finely looks very stylish in any colour.

    Love this pram, carrycot seems bigger than most prams meaning more space, covers & hood are changeable for personalisation, rain cover easy to put on and take off, break is good although break clip can sometimes snap.

    We have a special edition Victor and rolf pram which has its own numberplate too. Its so easy to steer and make my morning walks so easy. Carrycot and the pram both has one frame so once you used up the cot it converts in to a pram. No extra space for srorage needed!

    I absolutely love my bugaboo! So stylish and easy to put away! I have all three travel systems in light pink! It’s great?! Only issue I have is pushing the pram as it’s hard to steer sometimes! Other than that it’s great.

    I love the look of this buggy it’s extremely stylish, in fact I use every excuse to take my little one out so I can show him and the chameleon 3 off. The chameleon 3’s features are really good too. I especially love the hand break, which makes me feel more in control and I love the way the handle bar moves from one side to the other. It’s just a shame that the shopping basket is not easily accessible with the bassinet attached. I often have to take the bassinet off to put shopping in the basket.

    I have had this now for 3 years, I love the chameleon and although expensive the quality is great. It is strong and sturdy and built to last. I love that it is a travel system and easy to use with lots of accessories and great to look at, I love how safe it is, how comfortable my little one is in it and even though he is now 3 think I will struggle getting him out of it when his new sibling comes in a few months. I also really like the fact that the brake is a lever at the top took a little while to get used to initially but as time goes on actually a really good solution which i love!
    There are a couple of negatives:
    - Its sturdiness means its quite heavy so not easy lifting in and out the boot and not very compact
    - Small storage conpartment underneath so little space for bags and shopping
    - Accessories quite expensive and you literally have to buy everything separate
    - Raincover that comes with it is hard to put on and keep on

    All in all if I was to buy a pram / travel system again I would definitely purchase a bugaboo chameleon. I love it!

    I have used the bugaboo chameleon for my last 2 children and absolutely love it! It ticks all my boxes a strong, robust pram/pushchair. I love that the prambody is so roomy & comfortable for a newborn & the pushchair just grows with the child. The seat is very room a very secure harness and so lovely and light to push and steer.

    Fantastic pram. Really easy to assemble and manoeuvre. The break is near the handle so you don’t need to struggle finding a break with your foot! Only negative point is that the same base is used for the carry cot and older child seat, so you can’t quickly change between those options.

    This is my first bugaboo and third son, I wish I had one for the other boys! Love the fabrics, and the durability ( it spends a lot of time on football pitches and wood walks!) , I love the amount of accessories you can get to make it your own and super comfortable for baby.

    We have used the cam3 from day one with our little boy and he is now 2.5 yrs old, I love the look of the pushchair and the hubbie was very impressed with the build quality. I appreciate this is at the top end with regards to £££ but personally think it’s worth every penny. It’s so easy to manoeuvre with one hand, and isn’t too heavy even with a toddler on board. We use it daily, and a fair bit off road and have never encountered any issues.

    Love, Love, Love 💕. Having purchased
    2 for both my boys given there’s 8 years difference. I found it such a lovely pushchair. It was lovely to manoeuvre. It was a little tricky getting use to putting up although was you knew how it was fine. A little annoying that you had to take too bit off when folding down. But everything else I loved. Lovely quality, lovely packages to make it look like a totally new pushchair going from summer to winter. I always knew my babies were so comfortable too. They had plenty of room. I did find the break could do with some improvement after getting a blood blister after trapping my finger. It would definitely recommend to any new mummy.
