Bugaboo Bee 3 – My Review


Bugaboo Bee 3

A couple of months ago I wrote a post on ‘our pushchair of choice‘ and why we decided to go for the Bugaboo Bee 3. In that post I listed all the reasons why I felt the Bugaboo Bee 3 was the right decision for us, after my extensive online research.

We had a Bugaboo (Cameleon) pushchair in the past, so I knew that the quality and durability of the brand was good but this time I wanted a smaller, lighter version – which is why we went for the Bugaboo Bee 3.

When you’re having a baby, there are so many things to think about and buy – but the pushchair/ buggy will probably be your biggest expense and therefore the most difficult and emotional decision. There are so many options out there on the market – different brands, designs, colours, sizes and systems. For me the Bugaboo Bee 3 was the one (for many reasons) but did I make the right decision?

As baby Iris is now with us, my husband and I have been able to use our stylish new grey Bugaboo pushchair and therefore I’m now able to give you our honest opinion.

For me the biggest and most obvious benefit is that this pushchair is light and very easy to push and steer. I can even steer it with one hand – which is useful as I also have a three year old daughter who often wants to hold my hand while I push the pushchair.

I love the look and design of the Bugaboo Bee 3 and the fact that it comes with a baby bassinet. This is the first Bugaboo Bee to come with a bassinet, which for me is a big bonus as we can also use it as a mobile carrycot bed when you’re at home.

When Iris is older, we’ll be able to change the bassinet with the chair (which comes with the Bugaboo Bee 3) – turning the pushchair into a buggy suitable for older babies and toddlers.

The Bugaboo Bee 3 is not the cheapest option on the market, neither is it the most expensive but it is very well made and of the highest quality. Setting up the base and bassinet was easy and uncomplicated – as is folding it away and storing it.

So am we happy with our decision? Yes, very happy!  I would go so far as to say that I am over the moon with this pushchair, it’s everything I hoped it would be and more. If you’re looking for a small, light weight, stylish pushchair/ buggy that will easily last you for up to two years, I full recommend the Bugaboo Bee 3.

    I have a Cameleon, but I seriously considered the Bee and I do still really like it (my sister has one, so I end up pushing it a fair bit!) I think if I lived in a city the Bee would absolutely be my first choice – plus, it’s just such a good looking pushchair – I love the grey hood you’ve gone for.

    This is a really lovely looking pram – does it fold down well into the car boot.
    You look lovely on your day out to park xXx
