When we found out I was pregnant again and my first baby was just six months old searching for another buggy for me was easy. I had my mind set on another Bugaboo, it had to be! The Bugaboo Cameleon was such a fantastic buggy, surely they must sell one which carries two children, and yes they do, the Bugaboo Donkey.
Off we went to Mothercare again and there was the four by four of all buggies and it had my name on it. These are the reasons why I loved it so much. You are able to purchase a Maxi Cosi car seat adapter which fits on easily to one side of the buggy, left side or right side your choice, so transporting the new born baby is very easy. Whilst the other side can be the pushchair either facing you or facing outwards. If you would like the new-born baby to be in the carry cot again this can be put on the right or left side. If you only have one of your children with you then you can just have any of the options above but rather than the full width you can make the buggy narrow and have a side shopping basket.
There is plenty of room underneath the buggy for shopping and a nappy bag. This Bugaboo Donkey glides around even though you are pushing two children. When the baby is too big for the carrycot then you can make it into an additional pushchair seat. You again have the choice if one or both of the children facing you or outwards. The Bugaboo Donkey is a double buggy but still fits through most shop doors.
Similar to the Bugaboo Cameleon it has large wheels so pushing over rough terrain becomes easy, the front swivel wheels are lockable and again like the Bugaboo Cameleon it adapts from four to two wheels for snow and sand. You can choose your colour fabric for that personalised touch but we chose all black as we were not sure what sex baby number two would be and we wanted the buggy for his/her arrival.
The Bugaboo Donkey folds up and down very easily and has adjustable height handle bars. The Bugaboo Donkey was easy to assemble and a perfect buggy for two children of the same age or like ours 15 months apart.
