Bugaboo Bee stroller is usually a choice for a second time parent or secondary smaller stroller. For some reason most people tend to buy the biggest and most expensive stroller the first time. In reality, what your child needs is to get from point A to B, same as your car. Bugaboo Bee, as all Bugaboo strollers has a really smooth ride. It is very easy to roll. It has the car seat adapter and the basinet that allows to use this stroller from birth. It has tons of personalization options and accessories.  The folding and unfolding mechanism is ok but not very easy, definitely not one hand operation. It is not small when folded but once the basinet is gone is still better than the traditional, big 2 part strollers. The black metal option is really great and is durable. The seat material is not very durable and shows significant wear after just a few months. The basket underneath is spacious and fits lots of items.

This stroller is not designed for tall child so will not be able to use past 3.5-4 years.

Overall: the stroller is a good alternative to the traditional stroller options. Keep mind that you can buy all the pieces separately.

Ingredients/Materials

All fabric components of the Bugaboo Bee are made with a washable and weather-resistant fabric that is rated 600 denier strong with an ultraviolet protection factor of 50+. Canopies are available in various colors. Fabric components are easily uninstalled for cleaning and just as easily reassembled. The chassis frame is made of high-grade aluminum and plastic.

Necessity Scale-5

You need to have at least one stroller. This is a good alternative to the traditional stroller options but still pricey.

Price/Budget

High-$700-1000 depending on options purchased.

Siblings Friendly-Can engage together

Stroller is not really an item that can be engaging between siblings.

Durability/Multi Kid Survivor/Longevity Scale 4

This stroller will easily last for 2 kids and even 3.

Development Friendly-Helps with specific skills

Strollers are the first item that allows babies to explore the world around them. The ability of switching seat position facing front and back allows the baby to get the best view of the world around them. The more comfortable the stroller the more time the baby will want to stay inside.

Girl Friendly

The best part of the stroller is the ability to customize it and select what you want the stroller to be for you and your child. Definitely there are many girl friendly color options.
