      The Bugaboo Donkey is worth the investment. It is practical, durable and extremely hard wearing.

    The bugaboo donkey is expensive but well worth the investment. When I found out I was expecting twins I knew I had to have a Donkey because the side by side, parent facing position of the carrycots and seats.

    The donkey also looks great and I receive regular complements when out and about.

    This pram system is versatile, durable and extremely tough and easily withstands the busy life of transporting twins from birth onwards.

    Despite being bigger then most tandem style twin prams the Donkey is very easy to menuvre.

    I love my Bugaboo Donkey and so do my twins!

    • Strengths:

      The key strengths i found with this pram is storage underneath and on side cart, its easy to store

    • Weaknesses:

      My only weakness is that when the pram is being used as a double you cannot use tbe side storage bag

    As a first time mum this is a great system with all the storage that comes with it , it is easy to dismantle and store which is great when your on your own with no help with getting in and out of the car or when you are at home. My only dislike is that when i come to use it as a double pram i loose a key part of the storage.
  • 4.75/5
    • Strengths:

      Light and easy to steer, with a huge basket

    • Weaknesses:

      Quite bulky for boot, so have to take seat and bag off before folding for boot

    I have only used on single mode as bought for my first baby, thinking if my family grows I won’t need to get another pram. Using on single mode doesn’t look out of place, it’s not as wide as it looks and can easily get in and out of doors and walk round shops easily.
    The basket underneath is easy to access and has plenty of storage, which is perfect when we’ve got a sleeping baby!!! The hood unzips and extends fully which also is great for a sleeping baby.
    The foot beak is easy to use and at the wheel so not likely to be pressed on accidentally.
    The material is all washable, so I was able to completely strip it after my newborn was sick all over the carrycot.
    Only thing that I fee is missing is a peep window to keep an eye on the baby.

    I have been using my donkey for a few month now at first as a single for my one year old and now as a double with my newborn there are a few negatives i have found one being it is a nightmare to put the raincovers on it takes me at least 5 mins to but just one on also putting the pram up and down in double mode you have to remove seats and fold frame separate there is also a lot of positives with the pram a few i can mention are you can change the colours of all the fabrics so can have it for both girls and boys in single mode you have a handy side basket as well as a basket underneath the seat units are specious

      It's stylish, and simple.

      Raincovers

    I love this pram, my boys are side by side which means I can see them both at once, it's simple and easy to use, the one big downfall is the fiddly raincovers, they are a nightmare, they stick together and I feel twist the hoods out, not convenient with two kids and rain, they also don't have much leg room as my boys are really tall.
  • 4.00/5
    • Strengths:

      Travel system gives lots of different options and it is easy to manoeuvre

    • Weaknesses:

      It is bulky when folded down and take up the whole boot of a large car

    We bought this pushchair to use for our twins from birth and we love it! Even my husband who was not convinced due to its size, now thinks it is great. There are so many different options of combinations for how you seat your children. For the twins we can have them both in carry cots and later on both in seats either parent or world facing. If you also purchase the car seat adaptor it makes getting in and out of the car for quick trips so easy. If you have children of different ages the options are even more. It is bulky and would not be an option if you don’t have a big car. Me and my husband had to swap cars as I was not able to fit it all in my boot and even in the bigger car there is not a lot of space for anything else in the boot
    We have had some trouble getting it into places, this tends to be in older buildings but has not yet stopped us from doing anything we want to. The function that allows you to collapse the pushchair down to a one and half size (one seat/carry cot with the basket in place of the second seat) means that if we know we may have trouble with it we can put one baby in and carry the other. All round I would recommend this pushchair to anyone. I am so pleased that we have it and it will last us for a good few years. Very expensive but well worth every penny!
  • 4.50/5
    • Strengths:

      Very sturdy, different options as your family grows

    • Weaknesses:

      Bulky - takes up a lot of space in the car boot

    • Built to last

    • Easy to steer
    • Value for money
    I use this currently as a single with the side basket for my changing bag or shopping bag.
    It is well built, and as with other bugaboo pushchairs, there are a lot of different options eg to change fabric colour, or adding accessories.
    It does take up space - but if you have the single and side basket you can still fit through doors easily.
    I will use this as my family expands, with second child. I would recommend this, especially if you want extra space when you're out for the day or shopping. I suffer from back pain, and this has definitely made things easier.
  • 4.25/5
    • Strengths:

      Hard wearing and built to last

      A bit bulky for the car boot and around small shops

    I have been using this pushchair on and off for the last 4 years and still love it as much as I did when I first bought it. I first used it for a newborn and toddler. Was a bit of a faff getting through my small doors but I would put baby in first, take outside then extend to put toddler seat on. It was great that I didn’t have to have a separate single pushchair for when my toddler started nursery.
    I have got it out again for my now 3 month old, so only ever use as a single but having the side basket is great for the school run as it holds lunchboxes, book bags, coats etc. Being able to swap and change fabrics is great, as a self confessed pramaholic all I need is a new hood and I feel like I have a brand new pushchair again! The only downside is the size. It is quite bulky, and I struggle to fit it in the boot of my Ford Focus.

    I absolutely love this pram. I like the fact that when one child has grown out of it you don’t need to stop using it - you can convert it into a single with a super handy side basket. I love this pram so much. Everything about it is easy to use, it’s smooth and heavy duty. It’s the same width extended as a wheelchair and only half an inch wider than an average buggy when it’s in mono mode. Excellent pram.
  • 3.50/5
    • Strengths:

      Loads of basket space

      Not the spectacular buggy it's made out to be

    I wanted this buggy for so long. There was no doubt in my mind. This bugaboo I had my heart set on. My toddler out grew the donkey very fast (he is a tall boy mind).
    You always have to make sure the tire pressure is just right or like a car it starts to pull to the side.
    After putting the frame down so many times the central joints start to come loose. After my son outgrowing the buggy I switched to mono. This was lovely but I felt that it seemed very heavy on one side (where the baby was).
    I fell out of love with this buggy very quickly which I really didn't expect. I thought this pushchair was the best thing but really it wasn't as spectacular as it was made out to be. Not for me.

    Love this pram, used it as a duo and a mono! Can feel big bit after a while you get used to where it will fit and where it can go.
    Love the side basket when it’s a mono!!

    I currently have a bugaboo donkey duo, it's lovely to push and is a beautiful pram but it's a pain trying to fit through normal doors and on public transport as you the have to make the double into the single whilst trying to hold your child.
    It's the lightest double I've ever pushed and I've had a fair few. I like that you can mix and match colours and bug so many accessories for them and have the seats facing different ways.
  • 4.25/5
    • Strengths:

      Looks amazing and so much space for my 2 year old and baby.

    • Weaknesses:

      It is very pricey compared to some other doubles on the market.

    Bugaboo donkey has to be the favourite pram I have had. I love the look of it and the feel. It's so easy to steer although some shops are not very easily accessible if the have stuff in middle of aisles, but I also found this with a single pram. Building with older doorways may not be easy to get through but most places should be accessible for reasons like wheelchair use. I get so many comments about the pram and people asking about it. So great that I can use it in single or double mode . This will ensure that I will get a lot of use out of it.

    The pram is quite high in price compared to some other doubles on the market but I think it is well worth the money for the quality and style. Now got my eye on the bugaboo bee as I love the donkey so much.

    Absolutely Amazing!!!! One of the best prams ever!!!!! I’ve had quite a few prams but this is by far the best I’ve had! I’m not one to keep prams for longer than 6 months but once I got my bugaboo donkey I was gutted when my babies got to big for it 1 MILLION % RECOMENDED!!!!!!!

    This pram is gorgeous. My most favourite double ever! So easy to push it's like a dream not nearly as heavy to push as you would imagine! So many great interchangeable parts to it! So many different coloured hoods, aprons, footmuffs you can buy! It's big to store but can go from a single pram to a double in just a few short clicks! Very pricey but in all honesty I think it's worth every penny! My kids are so happy in it (2years - 7months) the carry cot is huge! My daughter is a big girl and she still has plenty of room in her Carry cot and still loves it! Both seats can either be world facing, parent facing or one faving or one facing in! My toddler loves to look out while I like to be able to see my baby! The hoods have fantastic coverage better than I have ever seen on another pram! I could go on for hours! If you buy this product I highly doubt that you will be disappointed! It will be a sad day when my babies no longer need it!

    I love this buggy so much in fact that I have bought it twice. Sadly my first one got stolen.
    Great for my toddler and baby. I really like the flexibility. Often switch between mono and duo mode.
    Can be difficult to put in your car. I take the seats off and stand it up in mine which helps. Basket is a little small for size of pram and stuff can fall out so watch out.

    We purchased this buggy for our twins as I liked that they could lay next to each other rather than on top of each other in a layered system. The buggy is very attractive and the quality is brilliant, however it is incredibly heavy and the chassis plus ha attachments need a huge boot to fit it all in. Some tips would be to take the handles off the carry cots when loading them in the boot because then you can fit them in easier. My main issue with the travel system was the width, in modern shops and buildings your fine but I found a lot of my local shops I couldn't fit in. It got to be such a issue I have now sold it and bought a new one.

    very sturdy and great to go from tandem to single would recommend this pram to anyone who has two or more babas.
    only downside is the carrycot part it has no straps to keep baba from slipping down.

    I love my donkey. I have a 2 1/2 year old and a 1 1/2 year old and find it easy to steer around, it’s not too wide and has fitted through every door I’ve tried so far, it’s also fitted on busses with ease. Both children find the seats comfortable and they have plenty of room to grow.
    The pram is slightly stiff to put back up but it’s just a case of getting the hang of doing it right.

    It took my months of reviews and research into deciding what double Pram I wanted for my 20month old son and newborn baby girl . I fell in love with this instantly when I seen it ! There are a number of different colours you can choose from and works for twins or like me newborn and toddler. The storage for the pram is good , it very specious and always fits everything I need . This pram can also be used as a single by shrinking it down and when it’s used in this mode you can also buy a side basket for more storage !!! It has tested all all surfaces by me , as we have a lot of fields and country side near us and we walk everywhere , and so far haven’t had any issues . It’s deffiently been a god send for me as a very active and busy mum ! I would recommend to expecting parents 100%.

I get many complements on this pushchair from friends and family too.

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 Duo 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.
