Today I was getting on a bus and only one of the front wheels managed to land firmly on the bus, because the wheels are like industrial 360 degree castors the wheel shot off to the right and the buggy nearly completely flipped over and threw my baby out of the pram, a problem even if both wheels have a footing. If I had not had a firm grasp with both hands at that moment my baby may have been killed. The wheels are wider apart at the front than at the back meaning I am always annoying people... (read more)

The great things about my Bugaboo Bee are its relatively small size, making it easy to push around, and easy to get in the car boot. Works well with the clips with a MaxiCosi car seat too. It looks good and the lie flat (well almost flat) is good for new borns. The not so good bits are the high price, not just for the bee but also for the bits and pieces, and I also find the removal of the seat from the frame really really hard - the seat has to be in exactly the right position and I have...

I bought the all black "limited" edition and it had faults all over. The frame was bent, swerved into the road when you push, the chair lifting handle was stiff, and recently discovered the seat belt shorter by more the two inches than model on display. BB fought hard and in the end admitted frame bent so sent a new frame but not a new chair. Went mothercare yesterday to admitted the belt shorter then display model and just swapped it. No apology no reference to going to BB to report the... (read more)

My experience with the bugaboo bee has been disappointing. The wheels are faulty and jam constantly. They can't go forward or backward without jamming. Bugaboo's solution was to send me some washers, which are basically some stickers to improve the quality of the driving experience. This is simply a ridiculous low cost solution which has only undermined the bugaboo brand and wasted my time in trying to get the faulty product fixed. I have now been without a stroller since the child was born.... (read more)

Be careful, If you get a faulty buggy like I did, you get questioned about your motive of a refund - told they will investigate the pushchair thouroughly after you return it as to why it should still be faulty even though they release a press publication stating such and I have had the wheels replaced 3 times, and then when you ask for another bugaboo product to restore your faith in bugaboo you get told that the RRP is alot more for the Cameleon and their policy is not to upgrade (but the...

Bugaboo Bee Plus purchased in May 2011 in Belgium - ordered by the manufacturer in Holland. Looks nice however front wheels are not operating well - it it extremely hard to navigate it's like if they have a mind of their own - if you want to turn right you have to push very hard and force stroller to turn and it only works in 10% of the time, if you want to go straight wheels tend to turn right of left - anything but go straight! Wheels also turn (sideways) and you're stuck completely and... (read more)

I've had this buggy for 2 and a half years now and I love it so much. There have been times where I've fancied a new one but haven't ever been able to find another that ticked all the boxes that my Bee does! After over 2 years and 2 children using it, the only damage is cosmetic. I've had the seat facing both ways and had a MaxiCosi on for my daughter when she was newborn. It is awkward to fold with the seat facing the parent so I'll be changing that soon now she's 6 months but that is... (read more)

We bought the bee as it seemed just perfect. Within a week the fron wheels would not swivel and then we discovered that it is a very common problem with this model. It looks great and is light but the front wheels are so often faulty. There is a facebook page about this and numerous clips on youtube with people with the same problem. So stay away from this style. we are now shopping for a new one. Plus all the accessories are pricey. (read more)

I previously had a Loola pushchair because of the parent facing & lie flat & folding with the seat on.
Now, only 2 years later it is completely worn out. Turning is heavy, the brakes don't work anymore, one of the wheel locks is broken and the seat no longer clicks into the middle position between lying down and sitting up.
This in spite of me taking care of this pushchair, cleaning out dirt from nooks & crannies etc.
Then we found the bugaboo bee. I didn't want to spend that kind of... (read more)

Ive bought the bugaboo bee after having a Graco push-chair, and although the bugaboo bee was pretty expensive it is the BEST pram I've ever used, and ive done a lot of research.
very light weight
extremly nice to manouver,
the seat reclcines to almost vertican and you can pull the hood very far up so your baby is all nice a cozy.
its very narrow, eventhough the seat of the baby is quite specious - can get in, around and through anywhere.
the bar to push the pram is adjustable so if... (read more)

The Bugaboo Bee and plus are brilliant, I have had both, just got the new one. I just love this buggy, if you are thinking about getting it then don't hesitate it is just excellent. And the plus has just had a few moderations to it so all the imperfections (the few that there were)have been corrected, its easier to fold, easier to adjust the harness, the harness is longer and easier to do up, the seat is easier to make longer or shorter plus the seat is slightly wider and the hood is higher...

I recently purchasd a bugaboo bee plus and to be honest it doesn't deserve the bugaboo label and certainly is not worth the money, I regretted buying it soon after the first time I used it. I bought the frog for my daughter six years ago and that was a delight to use for the whole three years she was in it(I presume the cameleon and the greco are just as good as the the frog). I felt I needed something a bit "nippier" this time round but it hasn't really delivered. I would suggest if you... (read more)

i have had my bugaboo bee for a few days now and so far so good. its a dream to push, the fact that baby can face both ways is a real plus and one of thereasons i bought it, it folds small enough to fit in the boot of my mini, and most of all my baby seems very content in it. i havnt bothered buying the nest (cocoon) insted im using a bruin baby support which is working great. the fact that its not etirely flat (although its not far off) is ok for me as my newborn seems more comfortible at a...

I love this buggy! Honestly, I can't rate it higher. Yes it's pricey but not much more than the Quinny, which was my other choice. I chose the Bugaboo Bee though mainly because of the recline! None of the Quinny's recline without tipping the poor childs legs up in the air. The Bee also has a large hood, large shopping basket and the most AMAZING one hand turn I have ever seen. It is a delight to push and everything just works so well on it. Its stiff to put up and down when new but this... (read more)

I have only good things to say about the Bugaboo Bee. It is a fantastic buggy to push around the shops, steers with one Hand - No messing around when folding up. I have a Renault Clio car and was worried about the space but didnt need to because it fits very well with still room for more items in the boot. My friends with the big strolling prams envy the Bugaboo Bee because they only now realise their BIG pushchairs they have bought are not very practical especially if you like shopping... (read more)

I will never recommend the buggaboo bee to anyone, I have just over 6 months warrenty left and it has broke 5 times and the last time buggaboo couldn't be bothered to give me a chassis that was complete it was missing cap so two bolts came out, and now they are trying to get out of sorting this out, this is ment to be a "city buggy" but it's not fit to purchase, it's a safety hazzard, and with the brakes that have failed my daughter could have been greatly in danger of vearing into the road...

great from birth & you dont need baby nest- buy a head support in black off the net- looks smart and was only £10- can leave in and fold easily. Then you only need the foot muff- essential extra. Looks really smart- machine washable, dries quickly. Recline is almost flat so great for newborn. Easy to shop with , not too wide and I think unless you have a very large baby you will be fine in terms on the width that has been criticised. Mine is a broad shouldered 15 month old but is fine- looks... (read more)

Bugaboo Bee looks good, very easy to steer, great in small spaces - such as at the shops as very narrow and small wheels! Good when my son was a baby - he was snug in the bugaboo baby nest and slept soundly when I was out and about. Now too narrow for my son. He is only 11 months and in his winter coat loooks very squashed in. Not good value for money as I'll need a bigger buggy very soon. Also a bit stiff to fold. If buggy had been a few inches wider it would have been a much better... (read more)

I got my Bugaboo Bee as looked fab and wanted a light buggy that baby can face mum ,however I have to be honest its just too small
in the seat my little boy was squashed up by his shoulders .
it was however very nice to push .if your looking for a buggy i prefer the maclaren even though baby cant face you.or if your after a bugaboo i much prefer my cameleon ,which both my 4 month daughter,and 2yr son love .so have now sold my bee .
will look out for a maclaren in the near future. (read more)
