So What’s New with the Buagboo Cameleon3
The Cameleon3 is a 90% new design when compared to the original Bugaboo Cameleon. Lots of improvements have been made to make the Cameleon3 even better. It was hard to think that this fantastic stroller could be improved and credit goes to the Bugaboo design team to achieve such a feat.
The refreshed design of the Cameleon3 details more clean lines and a more sturdy construction. The demands of today’s parents are constantly changing and offering more longevity was key to upgrading the Cameleon Stroller. The Chassis is made even stronger with connecting plastic joints and aluminium inner tubing together the make the stroller stronger and more solid. Billed as the All Terrain Stroller, the Cameleon3 has even more rugged central joints and streamlined wheels with puncture proof foam filled tyres.
The Folding mechanism has been modified to make it even easier to be on your way. The outgoing Cameleon needed the user to kick the bottom bar to fully open the chassis. Whilst not a major issue, sometimes in big boots it could be a little tricky. This issue is resolved on the Cameleon3 as the chassis automatically opens upon lifting of the handle bar.
The Cameleon3 Carrycot is flat folding for easier storage and comes complete with attached fillets to provide more rigidity when being used for overnight sleeping and can be removed with one hand. The handle bar now has 6 step adjustable height positions and the under seat storage basket has increased in size. The adjustable front suspension wheels are now easier to remove thanks to the signature Bugaboo white buttons. The Padded Adjustable Harness is taken from the Donkey and features a sliding height adjuster to ensure a safe fit for a growing child.
The Bugaboo Cameleon3 is again stronger and better than before and is compliant with all current and foreseeable future safety standards and regulations.
The Bugaboo Cameleon3 is compatible with all old Cameleon accessories including footmuff’s and tailored Fabrics and is available in many different colour combinations. Simply choose the colour of the Base Fabric and the colour of the Canvas Tailored Fabrics and you can create a colour combination to suit you and your child’s personality.

The Complete Bugaboo Cameleon3 range is being launched to the UK market on September 1st 2012.
The Bugaboo Cameleon3 Stroller is one of the few 'all terrain' 4 wheel Strollers on the Market. The main issue with 4 wheel strollers is that they usually have 2 small wheels at the front which are not ideal when used on un-even surfaces. The Bugaboo Cameleon has adjustable suspension on the front wheels as well as the unique feature that the handle bar can easily be flipped over.This effectively switches the front and back wheels so that the two large rear wheels are now at the front. In this mode the it is much easier to tackle rough terrain such as cobbles, gravel and snow.
The ride comfort of the Bugaboo Cameleon3 is also one of the best on the market. The adjustable front suspension and foam filled rear wheels give a soft comfortable ride. We also found that the Bugaboo Cameleon3 was still easy to manouver as Sam got heavier which meant we didn't need a second lighter weight stroller.
The Seat unit on the Bugaboo is a good size and is both forward and rear facing with 3 recline positions in both directions. The seat unit is also easy to remove and as it uses the same bumper bar and frame as the carrycot. You can remove the seat unit with your child still in it and it forms a self supporting seat that can be used on the floor.
The Bugaboo Cameleon is made from high quality lightweight materials and is engineering at its best. Bugaboo offer a 2 year warranty as standard on the Cameleon with extra warranty available with product registration on the Bugaboo website. In the 3 years we have been working with Bugaboo we have had only a handful of issues with the Cameleon3 and these have been resolved with a minimum of disruption to our customers.
The Bugaboo Cameleon3 Stroller is suitable from Birth as it comes as standard with Carrycot fabrics which get replaced with Seat Fabrics at approximately 6 months. The Carrycot mattress has a special aerosleep pad which allows for better air circulation and temperature regulation of your baby.
As a travel system the Bugaboo Cameleon3 Stroller takes either the Maxi-Cosi Pebble or CabrioFix with the addition of adapters.
Overall the Bugaboo Cameleon3 is a fantastic stroller which is great value for money. Just take a look at how much second hand Cameleon buggies fetch on auction sites.
