When I was first thinking about purchasing a stroller, I automatically wanted the Bugaboo Cameleon 3. I feel in love with it, it was my dream stroller. So, first, I started out buying this one. The one thing that I loved about it is that I could literally use it in 3 different ways. I could use it as a bassinet, which turned this stroller into a pram, or with my car seat, or even just with the regular seat once my daughter was old enough. When she was born, I mainly used it with just the car seat. I managed to find an adapter for my Nuna Pipa car seat and it was super easy to install and use. I wasn’t a huge fan of the bassinet and neither was my little one, but the car seat worked for the everyday life that I went through, especially since she falls asleep on car rides.
How I I found the Cameleon 3
This is one of my favorite strollers simply because it is so light and the frame is really small, so you can fit through basically any doorway. I have never wanted to have a bulky type of stroller, so I found one that would work well with a car seat and something that would be great for every day. It folds up quite small, its super lightweight, and it is quite easy to maneuver about. It is a lot easier to push than other types of strollers out there. I love the fact that the canopy is pink, but it is really great that it reclines so well. This is just an all-around well thought out stroller.
Then I found the Stokke Xplory.
How I found the Xplory
This is the coolest looking stroller I have ever found and being the impulsive person that I am, I bought it. It is a great stroller, but it isn’t really my favorite but I do love a lot of the features it has. I bought the adapter for my car seat which was really hard to install. Once my girl was big enough to just go in the seat, I found that I really liked this stroller.
The fact that this stroller is high up, and it means that she is closer to me. That is one of the things I love about it. I also like the fact that you can use it as a high chair, when your child is facing outwards. The seat is plush and the canopy is very sturdy unlike the Cameleon 3. Everything that is on the stroller is easy to use.
I didn’t like the fact that there wasn’t a lot of storage on the Xplory and that is usually the main reason why I do not use this stroller as much. I tend to carry a lot of things with me. It is also a bit heavier than the Cameleon 3. It is pretty cool and has a lot of good thing about it, I just do not think that it is worth the time. It is still a great stroller, but when compared to the Bugaboo Cameleon 3, it just doesn’t make the cut.
