    Over all a brilliant pram
    My nearly 2 year old fits in the seat unit which is brilliant , easy to push and light and fits through most doors and shops
    I do struggle to fit on buses when my partner is not around
    And doesn’t have a very big basket

    I love this pram!! I struggled to decide on a pram for my toddler and new baby and I am so happy I went with this one as apposes to a tandem pram. It’s easy to steer and so light when pushing I love it that both children can be facing either direction. Yes it is big but fits in most doorways (said width as a wheelchair). One you get the hang of the gold and how it will fit in your boot it’s fine any pram that’s a double and has 2 seats is going to be big in the boot overall love it!!

    Best pram I’ve bought I’ve had 10 prams in 2 years and this will be my last. The design is brilliant from how it can be single and duo when you buy the duo. To the fabrics. Never had a pram that’s so easy to push and go up and down kurbs! Would definitely recommend. Its a very dear pram but you won’t need another!

    We love this pram weather you have one or 2 children it really is a unique head Turner Pram. In single mode you can have 1 seat and basket which comes in brilliant for all your bits and pieces. You can also have the carry cot or car seat. When in duo mode you can have 2 carry cot, 2 car seat, and 2 seat units or if like me 1 carry cot and 1 seat. The carry cots are lovely and spacious and have a removable cover to wash. The seats are the same frame you use for carrycot u just have different fabrics which are easy to take off and on I did it with in 5mins it has a lovely strong velcro that comes off the frame and one buckle along the bottom. The frame it self is a bit on the bulky side but what do you expect for a luxurious side by side. It fits round most shops I only ever had a problem getting it through some wooden doors but 90% of the time it fits through most doors. Overall I would 100% recommend for twin or even tandem.
  • 4.50/5
    • Strengths:

      Can be used as a single or double and for a through most standard doors as a double.

    • Weaknesses:

      To many accessories to choose from

    I love love love my donkey. So much so i have accessoried it so much over the years. The hoods and seat covers them self come off and go straight in the washing machine for easy cleaning as does the under basket. Can be steered with one hand even as a double. Seats can be parent facing or world facing or either iver. Can be used as a double or a single and is very easy to adjust from both. Slightly bulky when folded but what do you expect a double like this to be... slender. Saying that it fits comfortably into the boot of my ford focus along with both seat units and also leaves room for shopping.

    This is the best pram! I've had this pram since birth of my twins and it's been fab. I've recently sold it due to no longer needing such a big pram but I just can not find one that even comes close to this one. It's cosy for the winter months and the hoods provide great shade in the summer months without the need of a parasol. It's easy to push and the suspension takes a lot of the weight so doesn't even feel heavy to push at all. Only down side to this pram is that the seats have to be disconnected to out into the car or house which can be a hassle in the wet days.

    I purchased this pram when I was expecting my second as needed a double. I was bowled over by how much I love it. At first whilst I was pregnant I used it as a single and my son loved having the side basket to keep his toys in. It was great for when we went down to the shops and didn't have to juggle and basket as we could use the one on the pram. After having my second I was worried that the pram would stop me getting in most places but even as a double it fits through a standard doorway! It is so easy to steer, and is beautifully designed. I am now expecting our third child and love that we can still use the bugaboo, as have now invested in a buggy board that simply clips onto the Base. I highly recommend this pram!

    I absolutely love my classic navy and cream donkey twin. It is a beautiful pram to look at and I have had many people stop me and comment on not only how beautiful my babies are but also my pram. When I was testing prams before they were born I felt that nothing on the market came close to the quality and that’s why I feel that the price of the pram is not overly expensive. I’m a great believer in paying that little bit extra for the added quality. I also like the fact that if I’m the future I decide to have more children I can use this as a singleton pram too.

    A couple of negative things are.
    1. The cost of the accessories. I would have loved to get matching foot muffs for the winter and I looked at the matching parasols for the summer but these items are extremely pricey and when you have already paid out a large sum on for the pram you don’t want to be paying ridiculous prices for extras.

    2. When using the car seat adapter for the double you have to make sure you check door ways. I have had a couple issues fitting in shops, and even the local chemist due to the size and have ended up with a few scratches down the side of the adapter trying to fit through. (Maxi-cosi double adapter)

    3. Occasionally I feel the good is not as good quality as the rest of the pram. When I have had it fully extended and trying to close it back it can sometimes fold only at one side or different sections at the same time and I have had to stop and use both hands to fold away.

    4. The bar on the front could be easier to remove and stay attached at one side. My sister has the chameleon and I prefer how her bar attaches and detached.

    Over all I’m very happy with my pram and would highly recommend it to anyone who was looking for a double side-by-side.

    Absolutely love the donkey, wouldn’t have anything else. Very easy to steer even with two children in. Love the addition of the basket in mono mode as it comes in so useful. So many colour choices and accessories to go with it. Very easy to extend into a double if needed.

    This pushchair is simply amazing.
    I’ve been using it as a 1.1 with the shopping side basket for around 3 months and come December will be using as a duo, it’s so easy to push and gets on and off buses great.

    The bugaboo donkey is amazing double Pram. It has various combinations with car seats, bassinets and toddler seats. Aswell as buggy board and various changeable hoods etc. It’s convenient and useful and handy to have. Although it is fairly heavy, can b awkward to push if a lot heavier on one side and take a lot of room when folded which can be awkward depending on boot size! Can be tricky to fold at first but easy once you are used to the buggy.
  • 3.63/5

    Having kids is a wonderful thing but sometimes outgoings can be a real task! The bugaboo can offer many things other pram can’t but it’s all for a price! I have a 2 year old, 7month old and due another in April. I purchased the pram 2 months before I was due my 2nd, mono mode is great!! The side luggage basket is a dream come true haha! No more trying to find stuff I need under the pram. It’s so much easier to put things to the side then looking for things underneath, I could be at the shops, on the bus or simply strolling along and everything I need can be in front of me!
    Duo with a carry cot is no problem! Duo with 2 seats is great as well! Both kids are comfortable either way! My 2yr old is every big and seats are still completely comfortable! One of my worries was the he would last long in it as his size but I was wrong!
    When pram is in duo you don’t have the side luggage basket but underneath does open to a reasonable size. Pram in duo mode does fit on busses and threw my doorways which are just the normal size. I’ve never had a problem getting this pram into anywhere, I live in a upstairs flat atm too!!
    The chassis seems to be taking to toll of my child’s weight, It seems weaker then it was at the beginning and ave only had it 9months, the bugaboo does come with a warranty.
    Considering the size of the pram it does fold up to a reasonable size .
    It is easy to push( would have rated 10/10 but always room for improvement)
    Family of 1 child or 3 this pram will adapt to your needs( buggy broad for eldest)
    It is a very pricey pram to most, I saved and saved for it. I don’t regret purchasing it, I only wish it lasts!
    It is a beautiful pram! I wish I got it for my 1st pram !!!

    Best pram for toddler and newborn . Can't recommend enough. So much space for all the bags you need to take around and easily changes to a single pram with even no respect within the top basket.

    I absolutely adore my bugaboo it's been amazing. I love if I'm just with one of the children I don't have to unpack and repack a single pushchair. It's easy to push with both in too. It's pricey but worth every penny.

    This buggy is fabulous in every way apart from the fact that trying to get it in my 7 seater folded, there was just too many pieces and it just didn't fit but I love that you can change the colour of the hoods the seats you can have a car seat carrycot or 2 seats. The seats are a great size even my 6 year old fit in them.

    I have had this pram for a long time now used it for 3 of my kids and is still in great condition, it's easy to use and very lightweight. I would recommend this pram to anyone with twins or 2 kids of different ages. It's fits in everywhere easy to store away and love that it comes it a variety of colours.
  • 4.13/5
    • Strengths:

      This pram pushes wonderfully either as mono or as a double it is so easy to push up and down curbs

    • Weaknesses:

      It is so tricky to put up and down and has to be done outside of my house as it is so big.

    This is a fantastic looking pram as a double or a single and you have the option to change the fabrics making a whole new look. I love using this pram in single mode as the side basket it wonderful for shopping. The pram is excellent to steer and goes up and down curbs with ease. I find the seats nice and big as my 2 year old daughter is quite tall but is extremely comfortable in it.
    Now the bad things i find with this pram is that its so wide it doesn't fit inside my house as a double so have to pop it into mono to keep in my hallway, even folded down its huge.
    The underneath basket isnt big at all for a double so its a struggle to get much under there.
    The seats dont recline whilst on the pram so if my daughter falls asleep i cant lie her back so this is a pain compared to other models of bugaboo which have this feature on other prams.
    Other than the bad points it doesn't put me off at all and i love my donkey.

    I love all bugaboo prams when needing a double they are stylish compared to other buggys. The only down side is the size it folds. It's easy to steer and lovely to push. However they are expensive but definitely worth it.

    Absolutely love this pushchair for my 2 year old and new born. Easy to fold, steer and lightweight too. Love how it can also be used as a single too.
    The only downside is the basket underneath, it's a bit on the small side but I guess as it's a double there will be a compromise somewhere.

    I nannyed for a family who had this pushchair. I absolutely love pushing this pushchair as it's easy to steer and is lighter then you think. It has a huge basket, can use as single or double, forward facing, backwards facing, can use from birth to 3 years. It's quite bulky and I had to take all 4 wheels off just to fit it and 2 seats into the back of my Yaris.

    Amazing buggy love it!!
    It's heavy and to fold is annoying but going from single to double takes 2 seconds.
    Baby and toddler both love it as much as I do.. recommend it "yes" but it's a little on the wide side.

Description

With 2 young children, anything that makes life easier is worth its weight in gold. Going out with two can often present a dilemma and you need a means of safely and comfortably doing so. The Bugaboo Donkey 2 Duo / Mono is the ultimate doubles answer, whatever ages you are catering for. It is versitile because it is readily convertible, with 17 different configurations, thanks to its interchangeable seats and bassinets, and flexible luggage options.

You can also reverse the seats so your children can face you, the world or each other. In just 3 simple click steps it can convert from a duo to a mono pushchair. And, in duo it is only 5.4 inches wider than mono, so you can still navigate through doors and relatively small places with ease. Whilst ease of adaptability is key, equally, no compromises are made on comfort or functionality.
