    After finding out i was pregnant with my second and knowing i only had a 2 year gap between my 2 boys i needed a pram that would last from before baby til the end of pram days. I went to try and test a few and found that this one fit all the criteria I needed (extendable handle, both forward and rear facing seats, from single to double and back again and lastly from birth)
    Reasons why i love it; it pushes brilliantly on most terrains (haven't tested them all) even with holding a dog lead in one hand. It is versitile for almost every situation I've been in.
    My down sides i couldn't afford it brand new (got it second hand) so the older model is a bit stiffer collapsing but its still running after the previous owner.
    Overall its a fantastic pram!

    We had another pram previously which was a tandem. I decided a side by side was nicer as both kids had a nice view as opposed to a tandem.
    Bought ours at the baby show in Birmingham. Have been so so happy with this purchase. I love that it can be single or duo, and I love the basket on the side when in mono mode. So handy for shopping and I don’t have to lug my baby bag with us! Only downside for us is that it takes up the whole boot: chassis basket and two seats. We have an SUV so it’s a large car too. We go away often for weekends and weeks away and have no boot space left for our luggage so have invested in a roof box.

    Beautiful pram, my favourite actually! I used this pram with my newborn and my 17 month old they loved it and it grew well with them it is beautiful and so easy to push only down side it’s it is very wide and it’s difficult to fit in shoes and car boots!

    I have recently purchased the pram ready for my twins. I needed a very lightweight pram because of my fibromyalgia and this was recommended for that. I believe it’s more lightweight than other prams and is very well put together and quite straight forward to set up as well. However the only downfall is that to extent the frame you have to get just exact which be quite heavy and you have to take off the carrycot or seat off before you can fold it down even to get it in the car so it’s not quick if your in a rush.

    We loved our donkey not only is it gorgeous to push but looks well made and very comfortable. Down side is the size its a big pram and pricey especially for twins when you need car seat adaptor and other addedd accessories. It does take up a bit of space. It didn't fit through our front door but it was worth it when the babies were in carry cots as they just looked very comfy and really liked it. Qhen they went in the bigger seat units they wasnt so kean. But then thwy were 8 months old and didn't want to be in the pram if they could help it. We had a black frame which shows scratches . It's such a lovely pram we got lots of comments it does fold very good too. We have just got a different twin pushchair and I was gutted to see the donkey go but for twins it was a brilliant purchase and worth the big price tag . It was nice to have the twins side by side i dont like the prams with one underneath who can't really see out. If the pram didn't take up so much room (carry cots and addedd bits which wasn't always needed) I would of kept it forever haha. It such a great lasting pram . The donkey two tyres are different to the donkey one and more hardwaring . If your expecting twins definitely have this on your list and go try it despite the price I'm sure you will fall in love with the pram. Another thing that got on my nerves was the rain cover was a nightmare to put on I just use to pull the extendable hoods right over in the end as the rain covers so tight to put on which use to take 10 minutes. over all such a dream to push and if you have alot of walking its a purchase you will be glad to have made.

    Our bugaboo donkey has been absolutely fantastic for our twins and I’ve recommended it to other twin mums too. It’s more pricey than some other twin prams but so worth it as it’s build to last and so lovely to push! Our twins are now in the pram seats and they love them, it’s so practical and also stylish we get lots of people asking us about it. Other thing I love is that fact it can also be used as a single if you need to just take one twin out for whatever reason.

    The bugaboo Donkey literally saved our lives in the beginning months of having our twins and even before they were born! We have a toddler and we had purchased the pushchairs before the arrival of our beautiful twins! We used the pram for our toddler as you can take off one of the seats and replace with a handy basket! Brilliant for storage when shopping of storing the nappy bag. The pram itself holds and retains its value for reselling as all the parts are compatible to sell together or seperately. We live in a rural area and the the wheels have been brilliant on every type of walk we have set out on! The stroller chairs/pram compartments can come off; they can either be placed facing the handle bar or forward facing - or one in either direction! You can accesserize with the pram and order different sections in different colours and add accessories such as a drinks holder or umbrella. We even placed a buggy board and seat on the back of ours for our toddler! The steering is so light and the pram even when full with shopping underneath feels weightless and easy to manuevour. Although the pram is quite wide I rarely had an issue with doors. Once or twice we had to take a stroller part off to be able to fit through a door! All parts come off and the chassis folds down small in the boot but the only thing is i would recommend the pram if you have quite a large boot as all the parts together do take up some room! These prams are indeed worth thier weight in gold!

    This pushchair is the top of the range for me. It’s the Mercedes or BMW of all pushchairs. It’s pricey that’s s fact but it has so many options and it is so durable and strong it will last you and others if you sell it on. It has a great resell value too! It’s so easy to push. I’ve got three kids and people admire me on the school run! I love it that i can transform it into a single with a handy basket on the side or I can use it as a double in various seat combinations even with a maxi cosi which was important to me! If you plan to have more children this is the pushchair for you!! The buggy board for the donkey is amazing too. My 7 yr old daughter either sits on it or stands on it and it is so strong!

    I struggled finding a double buggy I liked the look of aswell as being good for a baby and toddler and finally picked the donkey 2. Yes the price is steep but for what you get, how long you’ll use it for and how it looks I think the price is pretty good!
    You can get near to anything to accessorise it. Choose what colours you want. My baby and toddler absolutely love this buggy and it’s so smooth to push around

    As a triplet mum I have the donkey and the buffalo
    I am so in love with the donkey pushchair it is super easy to maneuver and quite slimline for a double I rarely have issues getting around shops I love I can change the fabric from summer to winter and the sun shades built in with a zip which extends the hood is a lifesaver when Mr sunshine makes an appearance

    Overall I love the bugaboo donkey it looks styish and fits through any doorway I tired. My favourite thing about it is my babies can face me and we can have a chat while walking. Down side is having to fold it down and take it apart every time I put it in the boot of the car BUT i would definitely still choose this pushchair over any other double I tired including phil and Ted's navigator, out and about, graco tandem

    We bought a Bugaboo Donkey2 Mono in all black, for a number of reasons. It’s so flexible and practical - we’re both in our 30s and planned to have two children in reasonably quick succession, so the ability to have this pram as a single or a double means that although it wasn’t cheap to buy, we won’t need to buy another when we expand our family. In its ‘mono’ state it is actually only the size of the average wheelchair, so we haven’t experienced any access issues that wouldn’t be encountered by any other pram. It can even fit folded into the boot of my little Yaris! I can’t recommnd this pram enough, it’s fab!

    I have the bugaboo donkey 1 which is basically the same product I use it for my 2 year old and new born it’s so good and looks so nice! I don’t like the doubles where there is one child on top of the other so we went for this as side by side and can also have as a singe with the small shopping basket next to it which I find useful. Easy to steer and collapse into the car.value for money

    As soon as we found out we were having twins the pram was the first thing we looked for as it would also have an influence on our vehicles as was also needing to upgrade that as we'd now be a family of 6. After having a look at some and being quite bewildered I asked advice on some twin pages, the Bugaboo Donkey and 1 other were the clear contenders of side by side ones as this is what we prefered to the ones where they are in front of one another. We went and compared both prams and the Donkey was our clear favourite due to it's wonderful smooth and easy movement even with 1 hand. The 2nd winning point was the size of the carrycots / seats. The alternative seemed mearly big enough for a doll not two growing twins. We took into consideration the fact that t h e other could fit through all doors etc whereas the Donkey wouldn't but decided that was a small compromise. Our twins are mow 7wks old and we've been putting it through it's paces. We love the fact that you can have the attachment meaning you can use the carseats on the frane, it's so much easier whilst they are young and means you don't have to disturb them to transport from 1 to the other, also meaning a little more peace and quiet. Everything just clips in placec really easily. Another major plus for us is the extendable handle as we're both tall and found others we were hunching down to, but this extends to a perfect height for us. Being able to see both babies all the time is fantastic too rather than having to peep around one another in the other style prams, I think this will beceven better once they are older and I can interact more with them, I won't miss any little smile, gurgle or even any issues. So far the only downsides we have found is that it's a bit tricky to collapse and open up, definitely not a smooth 1 hand job, can take a few minutes, although that could just be us getting used to it, it is nice that you can take the rear wheels off though to help collapse it further to fit in the car boot. The only other downside is that yes it doesn't fit through all doors and as we found out not all lifts either. Overall we are really really happy with our Donkey and look forward to it seeing our twins through the next few years.

    We all love our donkey. It's so easy to push (even one handed) comfortable for the babies and they love being able to see me when i am pushing it. The car seats clip on easy with a twin adaptor which was great for quick journeys round town . We have just progressed from the carry cots to the bigger seats and my 8 month old girls love looking out . The only down side is its a big pram to keep in the house , it does fold down but with the seat units taken off it takes up some room . With five children and the school run to do it can be a pain to put up and down all the time in taking it in and out the house so I tend to leave the frame in the car . Much easier to put the car seats on for school run but now the weather's colder the girls prefer to be in the seat units. Other than the size no issues what so ever and happy thay we went with this pram.

    As soon as I knew I was having baby number two this was the pram I permanently kept going back and looking at. No matter where I was I was always drawn to it because of its ability to go from a single to a double which would mean I could use for my daughter before the new arrival then use for them both then easily just put it back down to a single for the remainder of the time using it. I have to admit it is rather pricey and was what initially put me off buying but in the end caved and I’m so happy I did as this is possibly the best one I’ve used since having children. It’s surprisingly easy to push even with a large boisterous 1.5 year old. My only really dislikes about this is the fact unfortunately this doesn’t fit through the door of my house and the hall as a double so it has to be put from single to double outside to either get in or out of the has, I’ve noticed if I don’t take a car I find myself walking more with this as I struggle to fit onto some public transport but all in all I absolutely love it and would recommend to anyone I can’t absolutely love mine

    Best buggy ever, so happy with mine and would never choose another buggy again and iv had 10+ buggies. Love how you can either have it in double or Mon mode. Losts of space and so easy to push, you can push with one hand.

    Brilliant quality, a little pricey but definitely worth the money. I use for my 4 month old and my 1.5 year old. Both have lots of room in the carrycot/seat unit. Very easy to steer, and light to push. Easy enough to fold, basket is huge! Only downfall for me is that when in duo mode it doesn’t fit through a standard sized door. I can’t fault it other than that.

    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!!

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.
