While the price of a brand new Frog is outlandish, I was fortunate to snag a 2nd hand frog in good condition. I had heard the buzz, but not actually used one before. The second it arrived, I threw my youngest daughter in it and took a quick spin in our very small house. The maneuverability was second to none.
I was so impressed that I immediately hopped online and bought the Board attachment for my older daughter to ride on. It was easy to install and when the girls are both facing each other, they completely entertain each other (more so even than when they are in their side by side double). Amazingly, you can barely feel a weight difference from pushing just one to pushing both (and my 3 year old is 37 pounds). Also the single wheel on the board attachment means it does not affect the maneuverability of the stroller at all. Backwards is fine, forwards is fine, still turns on a dime. Board folds up easily when not in use.
Other features I enjoy are:
The storage bag closes with a pull string so you don't have to worry about anything falling out when you are running to catch a flight.
Reversible handle bar.
Mine came with a cup holder and clips for holding your bags (very nice additions for the road).
Also mine came with a parasol.
Durability (my stroller was 4 years old when I got and still in great shape).
I purchased the Frog for a trip to Ireland (needed something with bigger wheels for the terrain there), but it is quickly becoming the girls favorite ride. I realize now if I had bought the Frog when I had my first, I could have gone from bassinet (or infant carrier) to seat, to bassinet/infant carrier and board, to seat and board, and saved myself hundreds of dollars searching for the perfect strollers for different occasions.
Yes, I suppose even the outlandish price might be worth it for a stroller that is in it for the long haul!
As a former nanny I have used every stroller from the Kolcraft umbrella stroller to the highest-end Peg Perego model out there. So naturally, when the Bugaboo strollers came out, I was intrigued. And when I was having my own baby, it was research time. I tried out every current model of stroller in stores. The Peg Perego steered sideways. The Graco Quattro (the most popular model out there) seemed really bulky. I must confess however, that I was planning for the prestigious Bugaboo all along.
My initial concern with the bugaboo strollers is that they are two pieces. Being in Minnesota, and the fact that I was having winter baby, I didn't want to be fussing around with stuff outside. It probably WOULD have bothered me, but I solved my own problem by getting the car seat adaptor. It made everything really convenient, and took very little time setting up or putting away.
Having this stroller is GREAT if you are a heavy traveler - if you get the transport bag, that is. We used the bassinet attachment & chassis for 5 months as a bassinet when we traveled. It was one less piece of gear that we had to haul luggage wise, and we had a comfy stroller wherever we went!
It navigates excellent on sand, and the hood is overgenerous to keep your little person out of the sun.
In short, my complaints (and solutions) about the stroller are this:
THe storage basket is lame and hard to get to - bag clips are a great solution, but the stroller will easily tip over if it is in an upright position and there's stuff on the handle.
There are no cupholders for mom or baby, but a company called Jolly Jumpers makes nylon ones that are compatible for both areas that works great.
Overall, I use my Bugaboo daily, and wouldn't settle for any other.
There are things I love about the Bugaboo, but for the price, there are a few things that I'm very disappointed with. The whole parasol accessory is a joke and money making gimmick in my book. I'm really annoyed that without the parasol (which I STRUGGLE with) the baby has no protection from the sun! With most other strollers, the canopy rolls forward, but with the Bugaboo it doesn't. My other issue is with the under basket. It's difficult to get anything in or out of the small container with the seat on the frame. On a positive note, it is very portable - fits into my convertible, it's lightweight, very maneuverable and my infant seems very comfortable in it. Still, I question my choice to spend almost 700.00. And how about havng to PAY extra for something as simple as a cupholder??
When looking at strollers, my hubby and I really wanted something versatile, lightweight and compact. After reading many reviews on www.epinions.com, we decided that the Bugaboo Frog was the stroller for us. It transforms from bassinet to seat, from two wheels to four, and your baby can face you or face out. The only thing that made us squeamish was the price tag. Starting at $850, the Frog is quite expensive. Ebay to the rescue!! We got a gently used stroller for $550 including shipping. We immediately took it for a test drive and LOVE it. We can't wait until our little one gets here to use it!!
I do love my stroller...well it is stylisch and my girls just loves it.But there are many things i do not like!
First of all the basket.It is very hard to put something in it or take it out.
Second,the canope does not go forward enough to keep the sun out of my Babies eyes.You need to buy the parasol which is also very expensive.This feature does any cheap stroller have only bogaboo needs the Parasol.
The reversible Handlebar is great but did you try to go with the big wheels in front?No chance.So you end up with turning the seat arround.
I do love tha part that you can change everything and wash it.
I also dont like that there is nothing for the Mom's to put their water or keys...No Snacktray for the Child.
Of course,you canbuy something which is again pretty pricey!
I think it is a great looking Stroller but a bit overpriced.
I am from europe and we have plenty good strollers out there.A lot cheaper with much more details...But not as stylisch!
