Frequently Asked Questions
Is the Bugaboo Butterfly worth it?
The Bugaboo Butterfly's premium price reflects its high quality, compact design, and ease of use. If you prioritise convenience, urban mobility, and innovative design, the Bugaboo Butterfly could be a worthwhile investment for your family.
What is the difference between the Bugaboo Butterfly and other Bugaboo strollers?
The Bugaboo Butterfly stands out for its ultra-compact, lightweight design, making it ideal for city living and travel. Unlike the Bugaboo Donkey, which can convert from a single to a double stroller, the Butterfly is designed solely as a single stroller, focusing on portability and ease of use.
In terms of size, the Butterfly is significantly more compact and lighter than the Donkey 5, making it perfect for navigating busy city streets and public transportation. It also features an easy one-second fold mechanism, making it incredibly convenient for on-the-go parents.
While the Donkey is designed for all-terrain use with larger wheels, the Butterfly is optimized for smooth urban surfaces, offering a comfortable ride in a more compact package. The Butterfly is also designed with a focus on quick trips and travel, emphasizing ease of carrying and storage.
Why is the Bugaboo so expensive?
Bugaboo strollers are priced higher due to their advanced design and functionality. Features like swivel wheels, shock absorption, and adjustable components contribute to the cost.
How long will a Bugaboo stroller last as my child grows?
Bugaboo strollers are designed to last for years as your child grows from infant through the toddler and preschool years. The generous weight limits of around 22kg allow use from birth through age 4 or 5 years in most cases. Both the seat and bassinet are roomy enough to accommodate growing children. The versatility to use as a single or double stroller also extends usefulness for families. With Bugaboo's premium quality and craftsmanship, their strollers are built to stand the test of time.
Which is heavier the Bugaboo Donkey or the Bugaboo Fox?
When it comes to weight, the Bugaboo Fox is noticeably lighter than the Bugaboo Donkey. The Fox weighs just 10.42kg with the seat attached, while the heavier duty Donkey Duo comes in at 14.9kg. The Donkey's added weight comes from its more substantial frame and larger wheels needed to convert into a double stroller. This heavier weight may make the Donkey more difficult for some parents to lift in and out of a car trunk. However, when pushing, the Donkey's weight is balanced nicely so it doesn't feel too heavy or difficult to maneuver. The Fox's lighter weight makes it a bit easier to carry and manage. So the Fox gets the edge for portability, while the Donkey offers greater versatility.
What age is Bugaboo Donkey for?
Bugaboo Donkey strollers are designed for use from birth. They come with a bassinet for newborns and can transition to a stroller seat around 6 months of age. The stroller seats are suitable for children up to between 37.5 and 50 pounds.
