The original Bugaboo stroller, the Cameleon 3 is the most popular and iconic Bugaboo stroller. The Bugaboo Cameleon, which was first revealed to the public in 2005, is currently in its third iteration and has been around for ten years on the market for upscale pushchairs.

Bugaboo, a Dutch firm that began operations in 1999, has grown steadily and, at the end of 2014, announced that its Cameleon 3 line would mark fifteen years of Bugaboo design.

In the past, Bugaboo has led the way in stroller innovation and has collaborated with leading designers like Marc Jacobs, and Diesel to guarantee that their range doesn’t compromise on style. The company unapologetically positions itself at the high end of the market.

The Cameleon 3, promises a comfortable ride, a clever design, and a reasonable price. It also has a history of winning awards; the Bugaboo awards rack is packed with prizes for this stroller, from parenting magazines to design awards.

Compared to other brands, it is undeniable that the Bugaboo Cameleon enjoys enduring appeal, supported by high-profile endorsements.

Its the perfect all-round stroller

The Cameleon 3 is suitable for usage from birth through age three. Additionally, it combines the strength needed to handle off-road conditions with the nimbleness of a city stroller.

It can be rather heavy, so I wouldn’t suggest using it on uneven surfaces. Its light maneuverability on sidewalks and in public transportation, in my opinion, has a tiny advantage over being heavy-duty.

The stroller is capable of being used as a travel system with car seat adapters that are sold separately. The stroller can be used to provide a safe and comfortable place for your child to sleep during long trips, and the car seat adapter allows you to snap your child’s car seat with ease.

The Cameleon 3 can get you through your child’s buggy life if you just have one.

The seat and carrycot

The Cameleon 3 comes with a comfortable seat, adjustable shoulder straps that are fixed in place at the top end of the seat, and a chest strap. This design ensures that the weight is evenly distributed across the stroller.

The stroller also comes complete with a large carrycot, providing a comfortable and safe environment for your child to sleep in.


The Cameleon is strong and robust without being overly hefty, and the suspension and tires appear durable.

The various components fit together smoothly and solidly once attached.

With regard to the seat, a combination of Velcro and clip/strap attachments hold the fabric to the frame, and they do seem to be extremely secure.

The straps are double stitched onto the material and appear to be sturdy. The bassinet also uses strong Velcro straps to fasten across its frame when used as a carrycot.

Easy to push

The Bugaboo Cameleon 3 is a high-end stroller that has been designed to be easy to push. It has a one-hand steering system, which means that there are no handles to control the direction of the stroller. The stroller also has an adjustable handlebar and it can be pushed with just one finger.

2 wheel system

The Cameleon 3 has a particularly unique feature in that it can be used on two wheels by folding the chassis such that it resembles a one-piece from handle to wheels and removing the smaller wheels.

Although I have to admit that I believe it’s a bit of a faff, this enables it to be pushed or dragged nearly like a wheelbarrow and is claimed to help with moving across uneven terrain like snow or sand.

Fold system

In order to fold the chassis back on itself, you must first remove the seat or carrycot, push latches on either side of the frame, lift the handlebar, and fold the chassis back on itself. This process is rather quick but cannot be done with one hand alone.

It is a complicated process. It’s not hard to accomplish once you get the hang of it, and unlike other buggies, it doesn’t take any strength, but it can’t compare to the fold of the Bee stroller.

The Cameleon 3 folds into a somewhat neat footprint even if it isn’t a small pushchair—it does so in two sections.

The seat securely tucks into the buggy chassis when it is folded. At the touch of a button, the massive back wheels can also be quickly removed to make them smaller.

The chassis and either the seat or the carrycot, may stand on its side or lie flat under a bed. There is the option to purchase the carry case, which keeps everything in one place and makes it appear exceptionally neat. But if you don’t have much room, I wouldn’t suggest this buggy.

Even though it will occupy most of the boot area, the Cameleon 3 will fit in the majority of compact cars. However, you can only store a few bags around the stroller, which isn’t ideal for weekend getaways.

It is possible to remove the bumper bar and the huge wheels from the chassis, which both increase available space. This is done by pressing the white button on each wheel.

Easy to assemble

The parts easily snap together, and the majority of the chassis’ removable parts have a one-button touch. The seat and bassinet, meanwhile, both employ Velcro straps.

Value for money

The Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller is one of the most popular strollers on the market today, and it offers a lot of value for money. For example, it can be used as a single or double stroller, so you don’t need to buy two separate products. It also has an adjustable handlebar to make it easy for people of all heights to push around.


The Bugaboo Cameleon3 is a good option if you want a stylish stroller that works with a car seat and can expand with your family. Although the expensive price makes it unaffordable for most families, the accessories that are offered and the positional flexibility add value. If you really need to carry a lot of items, the storage basket isn’t the best option because it can’t contain much.
