That’s the result when you have not visited the post office for some days due to the activities concerning the Negenmaandenbeurs (‘Nine Months Fair’). In our mailbox was a press release about the new all-terrain stroller Bugaboo Buffalo. An all-terrain stroller by Bugaboo? Fancy name! We would like to know everything about it. I cannot really see the all-terrain aspect of it by throwing a quick glance on it, but we have to take a closer look. It has a high and spacious seat for children up to 23 kilograms and a retractable suncover for more protection against harsh weather conditions. I guess it has tougher wheels, but I am not completely sure. The Buffalo has plenty of space for storing things; the luggage net can hold up to 10 kilograms and other groceries can be suspended from the hooks on the pushbar. Many strollers can tip over due to the weight on the pushbar (such as groceries), whereas the Buffalo seems to be the first stroller that comes with a safety certificate for more than 6 kilograms suspended from the pushbar. That is a smart move by Bugaboo, but I then would like to know what the maximum weight is and how to control this as a mother doing groceries? Furthermore, the stroller looks robust and cool, although it shows many similarities with the Cameleon. This though ‘brother’ is available with a black or sand-coloured frame and with off-white, red, pink, petrol, blue, royal blue or black upholstery. I would also like to show you the various possibilities the Buffalo offers you. It will be available from the middle of March.
Another creative cooperation between Bugaboo and an artist! This time the Italian artist Alessandra Royeda fired her creative ideas at our Dutch design stroller. Allessandra has a passion for knitted and crochet objects and brings knitted colourful patterns to everyday designs. Woollen blankets and the distinctive design of the four-wheeler inspired her for the Bugaboo Cameleon3 Sahara. The winter proof packaging is of good use in this frost period.
Every once in a while, fashion designers are invited to design baby products in order for brands to make a fashion statement. For its Cameleon, in the past Bugaboo already cooperated with fashion designers like Missoni, Marc Jacobs, Paul Frank and Bas Kosters. This year, they contacted the designerteam Viktor&Rolf. During the project ‘My First Car’, they designed this limited edition of the Bugaboo Cameleon3, that shows characteristics from the car industry. The Viktor&Rolf Cameleon comes with a grey frame, a grey seat made of fabric from the motorsport industry and a leatherlook sun cover. The rear wheels have silver-coloured rims and the Viktor&Rolf emblem. Through the ‘rear window’ of the sun cover, you can easily keep an eye on the ‘future race car driver’. Both the foot-muff and the rear end of the crib have a custom-made license plate showing ‘bb-hearts-V&R’. The outcome is a stylish stroller that will not go unnoticed, but after all that was the aim of the project. For parents who want to stand out from the crowd: this limited edition is available everywhere for 1500 euros, and the foot-muff costs an additional 150 euros.
