There was lots of excitement going on at Bugaboo this year. The often imitated brand that revolutionized the modern stroller market, Bugaboo continues to forge ahead with both design and engineering.
On the design side, I’m going crazy for the first special edition stroller of Bugaboo’s three-year collaboration with Diesel. This first collection is the Bugaboo Cameleon3 by Diesel.
This military-inspired stroller comes complete with a dark green chassis, green canvas, faux leather handlebar and tons of distinctive details.
This will be available in stores in November 2014. The stroller will retail for $1300. Camouflage footmuff, seat liner, parasol and mosquito net will also be available as additional accessories.
The next notable new product at Bugaboo was the Bugaboo Stand. Use your Bugaboo carriage as a bassinet or your Bugaboo seat as a high chair.
The Bugaboo Stand weighs less than 6 pounds and folds easily into a shoulder carrying bag.
The stand is compatible with the Bugaboo Cameleon3, Bugaboo Buffalo, and Bugaboo Donkey using the required set of adapters. Expect to see the Bugaboo Stand in Spring 2015 for $130.
The really big announcement of the show was the Bugaboo Runner.
In a special evening event, Bugaboo presented the jogging extension that works for (almost) any Bugaboo model you buy or own. Just click your seat onto the specially designed chassis and you’re ready to run. This eliminates the need to purchase a separate jogging stroller. You can jog with your child front or rear facing.
The Bugaboo Runner will be available in the US starting in Spring 2015 and the jogging extension will retail for $425. You will also be able to purchase the complete runner (chassis, seat and seat adaptors) for $755.
We had a wheeled board for our Bugaboo but starting in December, Bugaboo will offer a new Comfort Wheeled Board. With a bicycle style seat, your older child doesn’t have to stand anymore. ($145)
This is also a good time to remind you that the new and improved Bugaboo Bee3 is currently available.
And Bugaboo fans (as well as diaper bag enthusiasts) will want to consider the Storksak + Bugaboo Leather Bag ($445).
