From the moment I knew I was pregnant I was so so excited to order the stroller of my dreams. I have first seen the Bugaboo brand years before I even had in mind to get kids and loved it right away. The cool styles and vibrant colors were so different to other strollers than I have seen and I definitely wanted to have one when the time has come.
And my time came. I was so excited about it and had to contain myself not to order right away. Nevertheless I made to week 20 before I ordered our stroller. I went with the Bugaboo Donkey Duo and here is why.
The Bugaboo Donkey Duo Review
That I wanted a Bugaboo was crystal clear to me but what model would it be. After I saw the Bugaboo Donkey on Rachel Parcell´s blog I was sold. I have never seen a stroller with a bag on the side before and oh my is it practical. Not only for transporting all of the baby´s stuff but also for small grocery runs or even if you just want to put your handbag in there.
It folds up in under one minute which is super convenient when you are in a rush but the one upside it takes up a lot of trunk space so if you are having a small car it won´t fit in your trunk. I am still wondering how our first vacation will be with limited luggage space plus the frame itself is pretty heavy. It is manageable to put it into the trunk by myself but it needs some muscle strength.
We got the all gray version and I purchased the yellow cover for the side bag and a yellow sunroof. To be honest I wanted the off-white version but it is no longer continued and also the bright yellow is such a beautiful and happy color for both genders.
The wheels are huge which makes them run very smooth and silent. You can also buy silver rims for your stroller if you like it extra fancy.
One of the additional pieces that I definitely needed was the cup holder – I mean as a new mom I need my coffee and doesn´t it look great to have it with you why taking a stroll.
You can also get an adapter for your car seat so you don´t have to take the bassinet with you everywhere.
The Bugaboo Donkey Duo includes the bassinet as well as the seat for kids from 9 kg and up. You can also make it wider and have both of the seats side by side. So in conclusion, the stroller is expensive but if you are planning on having a two kids close in age this will really pay off.
