The Bugaboo Cameleon3 Pram Review

Tinitrader loves the Bugaboo Cameleon3, a 3rd generation iconic pram that will last the test of time.

The Bugaboo Cameleon3 is versatile, compact and can tackle most terrains with ease making it one of our top choices when it comes to finding the perfect pram for your family.

The simple, easy-use functions make this pram a dream to use, the seat and carrycot just clip in and out at the push of a button allowing you to swap between your carrycot, forward-facing seat or parent-facing seat modes.

The 4-wheel suspension and smaller size of the front wheels make the Bugaboo Cameleon3 agile to maneuver; you can also reverse the handle bar to hit the rougher terrain.

From Infant to Toddler and fully loaded with exceptional functions and great styling, it’s hard to go past this pram.

We have summarised all the Cameleon3's specs and features below:

SEAT SYSTEM

The Bugaboo Cameleon 3 has a multifunction seat, this is a standout feature on this pram. Offering a 3-position recline in both parent-facing and forward-facing mode, making it easy to lay baby down for a rest when out and about.

You can also push the seat right up to the table to make it a high chair. This is great in cafes and most space saving indeed.

The seat also has it’s own self standing feature, so that if you are visiting you only need to bring in the seat for use independently on the ground.

HANDLE BAR

The foam-textured handlebar is comfortable to use and provides additional grip for easy steering. The height adjustment is generous and accommodates various heights comfortably. If you are wanting to tackle the tougher terrain simply flip the handle into reverse position and hit the road.

WHEELS

The Cameleon3 is a 4-wheel delight. The attention to detail and smaller wheels on the front make the one-handed steering and a seamless 360º turn a highlight. It really is impressive, great for shopping centers and get in and out of tight areas.

The excellent shock absorption allows you to glide up and down pavements and bumpy roads with ease, providing a smoother ride for you and baby.

CANOPY

The sun canopy is super long on this model, providing full coverage over baby to make a nice and dark space for sleeps. We also love that you have the ability to customise your canopy, you can choose from Breezy sun canopy or a colour that reflects your style.

BUMPER BAR

The bumper bar swings to one side, to avoid having to remove it completely when placing baby in and out of the pram. The bumper bar doubles as a carry handle, great for removing and inserting the Carrycot or seat.

SAFETY FEATURES AND BRAKE SYSTEM

The braking system is firm and located near the handle for ease of use. Adjustable, 5-point safety harness, easy to buckle and padded for added baby comfort.

FOLD/UNFOLD

The Cameleon3 is a 2-piece fold, makes it flatter and easier to fit into the boot in varying positions. The folding mechanism is really easy, and it compacts down pretty well.

STORAGE

An under seat basket accompanies this pram, it is VERY deep and most useful. It has a drawstring to keep all your goodies out of view and safe if required. Holds up to 10kg.
