    I love this pram, if one twin is crying I can carry him and push the pram with one hand, it is so manoeuvrable, it even manages the beach. The price might be a little higher than some alternatives but I think you get what you pay for, it is well made and feels sturdy.
    The carrycots are bulky but you can take out the plastic struts to collapse them which was a lifesaver for me. With Bugaboo accessories the pram can fit through standard door width no problem but with the car seats you can’t, however that is not a Bugaboo issue.
    My only gripe is that the basket underneath is shallow and can’t hold much.

    I have owned a bugaboo donkey for the last 2 years, it saw me through my first child in mono mode. In mono it was a fantastic pram as there was so much space to store shopping etc. I have been using it in double mode for 2 weeks, though I am yet to get a second seat unit I have used with my original seat and a car seat, I am very impressed. Even with a heavier child on it is easy to steer. While it looks very wide I have only encountered one door in the basement of John Lewis I could not fit through! All in all, a fab single and a fab double!! Definitely a future proof purchase!

    I have 18 week old twins and have used the Bugaboo Donkey Duo from birth. We use both the bassinets and the car seat adaptor for our Maxi Cosi Pebble Seats. One great thing about it is that it can be a double or single pram as it can be widened or narrowed. At first I had my twins in just one bassinet together (yes they were that tiny!) It is quite easy to put up and down and fold. The only issue I have with it is that it is quite bulky and it does not fit through the front door of my house. When I’ve been out and about it has fitted through most shop doorways. However the ease of use and the smoothness of the pram makes up for this. It is easy to push and steer and is a sleek and modern design. I look forward to moving to the toddler chairs which can race forwards or backwards too so it can be used in many configurations! I’d recommend to other twin mamas.

    Single mum to now two. When the eldest goes to his dads I can use the buggy as a mono but when at home can use the double. Only down fall is when I need both seats it takes up a lot of room in my boot meaning I have no boot space for shopping

    Perfect buggy for a baby and toddler, especially if you need a single buggy to as it converts saves having two buggy’s or one side empty.

    Looks great I have had lots of compliments.

    Good storage and the seats are good size, easy to clean.

    This pram is ace, perfect for twins or children with close age gap, even works well. As a single. It converts quick and simple to a single and the side basket is perfect for carrying things around or shopping with a baby. The fold is on the bigger side but what do u expect from. A double side by side. It pushes with ease but can get heavy as the babies grow bigger as with any pram. Rain covers are not great and one of the worst I have used, you would. Expect more from. A big company like bugaboo. The goods are. Fantastic and great to keep wind and sun out of tiny faces. Overall great pram

    Having two children of different ages this pram is perfect as I can use the part of the pram that meets my child’s stage. I live how when you only have one child with you this pram can also be a single. It’s a little tricky to fold and unfold however doesn’t put me off. One thing I can’t seem to get to grips with is using the rain cover this is very tricky. Love how you can change the colours of the fabrics however these can be expensive.

    All in all I highly recommend this pram as it’s amazing for all stages and has good baskets on it too.

    An amazing pram! So easy to steer and so light even though it is a double. I have the pink and blue for my twins and I am always stopped and complimented on the look of my pram. I did get mine second hand and it is still going strong, only thing is a couple of scratches on the frame from struggling to get it through certain doors. Only thing is trying to collapse it can be a bit tricky at first and it is very time consuming having to take the carrycots off and fold the frame to fit it into a car boot.

    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

    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

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.
