    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.

    We love our Bugaboo Donkey for our twin boys. It is stylish yet practical, which is obviously essential for twins! I am so glad we went for this side by side rather than a tandem.

    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.

    Couldn't fault the donkey it’s absolutely amazing i used this for my two youngest who were both at different ages and it was brilliant. I never got atuck in a shop i could use it on public transport no bother. Would have another in a heartbeat

    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.
  • 4.38/5

    So I have recently purchased the donkey duo I have a one yr old so she is in the seat position which fastens around the waist and over the shoulders all individually and clicks in, which is really good if you have a child like mine who likes to climb out of seats this one she can’t climb out of as you can get a really good tightening on the straps!
    I also have my son in the carry cot which is really comfortable and has a mattress at the bottom the suspension really takes all of the lumps and bumps while pushing and he barley moves even when my one he old is kicking off next to him.
    The steering on the pram is really good and lives with ease
    The only problems I have found is packing it away in the car can be time consuming and you have to take apart to load in the boot.
    Also you cannot fit through some single doors of the shops other then this I would highly recxomend

    After having & loving our Bugaboo Cameleon 3 for our first child, when I fell pregnant with my second & we knew the gap would be 2 years we would only be
    happy with a Bugaboo Donkey for our double buggy!

    We opted for a 2nd hand, as we only anticipate needing a double buggy for a year or so, and we know Bugaboo's are built to last we were confident that despite a few bumps & scrapes the buggy would work like new & we weren't wrong.
    We brought a set of replacement handlebar covers which made the buggy look new again, and the one of the brilliant features of a Bugaboo is that all the seats are machine washable so with a few washes, it was like new!

    In terms of use the Donkey is fantastic, and despite not fitting down all shop aisles very manoeuvrable, as easy as the Cameleon but with a more accessible shopping basket!
    In terms of folding, the fold from two to one (which I use every day to get in my front door) is a little sticky sometimes its just a case of making sure each of the 4 bars is fully in/out. And equally when folding for transport it folds down reasonably small (not significantly bigger than the Cameleon) again, you need to make sure every extending part is clicked in before you can fold.
    If you have the room for a large double buggy & enjoy getting out & about in parks etc I would 100% recommend the Donkey!

    I absolutely love this pushchair! I’m currently using mine for my 13 month old twin girls they always look so comfy and happy in it. I love they can both be side by side, they can face either way and one parent facing and one world facing. I love the different colour packs etc you can buy to make it your own. The push is amazing it’s so smooth and light you wouldn’t think you was pushing two babies. The extendable hoods have also been a lifesaver in this hot weather they cover my girls up better than a parasol could. Only downside I have with this pushchair is the raincovers are a nightmare to put on and then let in rain either side but I’ve now bought the high performance raincovers which are amazing.
    I would 100% recommend this to anyone that needs a double or single with the large side basket!
  • 3.88/5

    • Easy to steer
    • Value for money
    I was panicking about using a double buggy and convincing myself I would be better off with a single buggy for a newborn and making my just 2 year old walk everywhere! Apart from an initial stumble in a car park where a few other mums had to help me set it up for the first time I have been so impressed with this pushchair . Can easily get around different places and I feel both my children are safe in it. The basket underneath is pretty small but that may change when I’m not using a carrycot over it. It’s also pretty bulky and heavy to lift in a car but I guess that comes with needing a double pushchair!
  • 4.63/5
    • Strengths:

      This pushchair is amazing. The build is so strong. So easy to steer. My children are so comfortable.

    Bless Fabio are next to none. There pushchairs are built to last.
    I love how the donkey steers for the weight of it. My children are very comfortable in the donkey. I think the fabrics are brilliant. Very tough wearing.
    The only snag would be the weight of it when opening and putting it down.
  • 4.63/5
    • Strengths:

      Really easy to steer considering it’s a double. Love that the seat unit can be parent or world face

    • Weaknesses:

      Can be a little tricky to collapse and open. Frame quite heavy

    Lovely pram and well worth the money... can be tricky to open if pram frame isn’t completely collapsed. Very easy to steer. Would definitely recommend this to anyone needing a double... my 2 are 13 months apart so using Cary cot and seat at the same time. Love this pram!
  • 4.63/5

  • 4.63/5
    • Strengths:

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

    • Weaknesses:

      It is a little on the expensive side but worth the investment. Dosnt fit through ‘normal’ doors.

    • Built to last

    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!
  • 4.00/5
    • 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

    • Built to last
    • Easy to fold
    • Easy to steer
    • Value for money
    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

    • Built to last
    • Easy to fold
    • Easy to steer
    • Value for money
    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.
  • 4.00/5

    • Easy to steer
    • Value for money
    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
  • 4.50/5
    • Strengths:

      It's stylish, and simple.

    • Weaknesses:

      Raincovers

    • Built to last
    • Easy to fold
    • Easy to steer
    • Value for money
    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

    • Built to last
    • Easy to fold
    • Easy to steer
    • Value for money
    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 fold
    • 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

    • Weaknesses:

      A bit bulky for the car boot and around small shops

    • Built to last
    • Easy to fold
    • Easy to steer
    • Value for money
    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.

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.

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.
