Confession: When it comes to baby strollers, I have been through most. I bought into the Bugaboo hype and started out with the top of the line Cameleon and what a bug-a-bust. I despise the stroller. I tried to love it. I will say there are definitely some perks to the bug-a-wallet-buster. The ride is amazing and I love the look. I even ran a 5k with my first born in the Bugaboo and had zero complaints from my little love.
However, the stroller is an absolute beast to get into the trunk. There is nothing graceful about lifting a ridiculously heavy and awkward piece of machinery. Don’t even let me get started on the car seat adapter debacle and my major meltdown in the hospital parking garage when I couldn’t get the car seat unattached from the stroller with my arm candy strapped inside. Disaster.
I even tried to pimp my ride a little with the fun fabrics and after market accessories. I still hate it. You definitely need another stroller to travel with. Sure, you can purchase a travel case for the bugaboo if you plan on checking it through to your final destination, but then you have to check it and pray you don’t get stuck somewhere between Point A and Point B. We know how that goes. I could go on and on, but I won’t.
I recently read that Harper Beckham will be cruising in the ICandy Peach Stroller. To be honest, I haven’t tried the ICandy stroller. I love the name, but it is priced like a Bugaboo, looks like a Bugaboo and well….you know the rest.
