Bugaboo Donkey Base Stroller

Made to grow with your family, the Bugaboo Donkey Base is the key component of the modular Bugaboo Donkey stroller system. The Bugaboo Donkey Base can be used as a Mono stroller for one child or paired with the Bugaboo Donkey Duo Extension Kit (sold separately) to create a Duo stroller for two children of different ages. Add a Bassinet Complete and you have a Twin stroller for two children of the same age. With 17 different configurations, the Bugaboo Donkey can adjust to fit your family's needs. Purchase a Bugaboo Donkey base and Bugaboo Donkey Tailored Fabric Set for a complete mono configuration stroller.

Modular Stroller System Grows with Your Family

The Bugaboo Donkey has a convertible design that converts from a single-child stroller to a two-child stroller and back again. By adding the Bugaboo Donkey Duo Extension Kit (sold separately) to the Bugaboo Donkey Base, parents can switch from the Mono to the Duo configuration with three simple clicks. Add a Bassinet Complete to the Bugaboo Donkey Base and Bugaboo Donkey Duo Extension Kit, and you can switch to Twin configuration to accommodate two infants. The Bugaboo Donkey Base comes with one bassinet that holds babies up to 20 pounds and one seat that accommodates children up to 37-1/2 pounds.

Convertible Stroller That Accommodates Newborns and Toddlers

The Bugaboo Donkey is ideal for traveling with one child. To keep babies cozy, the bassinet offers a supported space with aerated mattress for riding or napping until your child is able to sit up independently. The bassinet holds infants up to 20 pounds and can be used together with the side luggage basket. When your child is ready to sit up, change the bassinet fabric to the seat fabric, and he or she can sit in the toddler seat, facing the world or the parent. Both the bassinet and the seat can be carried and used independently.

Self-standing unit

Compact Design Folds into Self-Standing Unit

Whether in Mono, Duo, or Twin configuration, the Bugaboo Donkey can be folded into a self-standing unit (regardless of which direction the seats are facing). Even in Duo or Twin configuration, the Bugaboo Donkey is compact and streamlined, so you can comfortably push it through busy parks and down city sidewalks. For easy operation, this stroller offers the convenience of one-hand seat adjustment, a foot brake, and a height-adjustable handlebar.

Duo and Twin Modes Hold Two Children

With the Bugaboo Donkey Duo Extension Kit (sold separately), the Bugaboo Donkey Base easily converts from the single-child Mono configuration to the two-child Duo or Twin configurations. Whether you have an infant and a toddler or two children of the same age, the Bugaboo Donkey can accommodate your family. Duo and Twin configurations each offer seven seat configurations, letting your children face you or the road ahead. The seats or bassinets stay at the same level, so your children can interact with each other while riding side by side.

Adjustable Five-Point Harness

Height-adjustable shoulder straps on the seat five-point harness system make it easy to secure your growing child. Simply slide the shoulder straps up or down to adjust the harness and create the correct fit.

Expandable Side Luggage and Underseat Basket

To keep essentials close at hand, the Bugaboo Donkey Base offers the convenience of expandable storage baskets that are accessible in any of the three stroller configurations. A side luggage basket has a capacity of 5 to 6 gallons and can hold up to 11 pounds of goods next to the bassinet or seat when the stroller is in Mono configuration. The underseat basket has a 9-gallon capacity and can hold up to 22 pounds of goods regardless of the stroller's configuration.

Large, Air-Filled Tires for Smooth Rides on Rough Terrain

The Bugaboo Donkey offers a smooth, comfortable ride even on rough terrain or city sidewalks thanks to its air-filled tires, 10-inch front swivel wheels, and 12-inch rear wheels. The front swivel wheels lock for steering control. You can even pull the stroller behind you in the two-wheel position to make your way over sand, mud, or other uneven ground.

Easy-Care Construction

The Bugaboo Donkey Stroller has an aluminum chassis for easy care and durability. To clean, simply wipe with a wet cloth. All fabrics can easily be removed and are machine washable.

Customize Your Stroller with Optional Accessories

Bugaboo offers a range of accessories, including a sun canopy, tailored fabric sets, snack tray, cup holder, footmuff, and parasol.

Product Description

In just three simple clicks, the Bugaboo Donkey converts from a full-size mono to a full-size duo stroller and back again. With its flexible luggage options, there's plenty of room for your goods too. Going around town has never been this easy.

If you are considering the purchase of a high-end stroller, you are probably reading reviews on a million websites, so I will keep this brief.

In case it's helpful to know, I am also the owner of a Bugaboo Bee (which was purchased used but in good condition) and a Bob Revolution single stroller. With the addition of Baby #2 we needed a way to go out in the neighborhood with both kids, and since the Bee has held up so well and we like it so much, we invested in a Donkey.

I have not had a chance to really use the stroller yet, but I got it put together in about an hour by myself. It came in four boxes and was very easy to assemble, which is important to know if you are considering a purchase on Amazon. I think if you buy from a brick + mortar shop they will sometimes put it together for you.

If you would like the stroller configured for a toddler plus infant, you need to add 4 unique items to your shopping cart to complete the purchase on Amazon:
-- Base stroller (which includes one complete seat that can be used for an infant or toddler and the basket for the "mono" configuration)
-- Duo extension kit (this gives you an additional seat for your toddler)
-- Tailored fabric set in the color of your choice (includes a "blanket" and sun canopy fabric for the bassinet)
-- Sun canopy in the color of your choice (for the toddler seat)

Note that if you do not buy both fabric sets you will not have sun shades. The seat kits DO include the sunshade "wires," which are more like frames, but they do not include the colored fabric. No way to avoid buying those fabric sets.

I will update the review after we've had a chance to use the stroller a little bit.

We knew we wanted two kids and we didn't want to end up having to buy a second double stroller if they ended up being close enough together to need that. We didn't want a "stacking" double stroller which seemed to be the only option aside from the Donkey for strollers that expand to a double. The shopping basket was a neat feature that I thought I would use a lot. I tried to dissuade myself by going to a few higher end baby stores and trying out every other stroller I could find and none rode as smooth as the Donkey. It is supposed to be only as wide as the old version of the Cameleon that my sister in law had.

It is only as wide as the old Cameleon but it *looks* much wider as the whole stroller is as wide as just the wheelbase for the Cameleon. It feels wider when you are steering it through a store. The shopping basket is indeed super handy, when baby is asleep I don't have to wake him up and put him in a carrier or put the car seat in a shopping basket I can just put my groceries in the side compartment. It does ride super smooth and handles rough terrain very well. It collapses easy enough. It isn't *super heavy* but it is a bit heavier than I would like and I definitely can't lift it into the car without removing the seat. I have a Mazda5 and I can leave one of the third row seats folded up and still fit it in there but just barely. I haven't tried fitting it behind the third row, I would definitely need a cargo net and some bungee cords.

The standard tailored fabric set is useless. The part that covers the foot of the bassinet pops off too easily and doesn't seal off from wind very well. The "sun shade" part is just complete garbage, it is cute but does not a lick of good for keeping sun off of baby.

With baby #2 on the way, we are in the market for a double stroller. We have loved our Bugaboo Frog (a hand-me-down) and naturally thought the Donkey would be the way to go, given our past success with the brand and the reputation. Plus it just looks so much nicer than all the other side-by-side doubles.

I didn't want to spend $1,700 (this base plus the duo kit plus the various accessories) on something I hadn't test driven, so we went to a store and brought our older child with us. Much to my intense surprise, he is already tall enough that we could not comfortably extend the canopy (his head was level with where the canopy meets the top of the seat). I normally don't review items I do not own, but as I had not seen this mentioned previously I thought it would be important to point out.

My son is in the 80th percentile for height with a long torso, but he's only two and a half, and one would hope that a stroller would last until at least age 4 or so--and it's rated for 38 lbs, so it seemed reasonable to think my 27lb kid would fit!

If I were expecting newborn twins, I'd probably go for this as it's so pretty and conveniently sized and the options are fantastic. Plus I love how Bugaboos handle and think they are incredible versatile. But we can buy a less attractive double stroller that is the same width for 1/3 the price without cramping our older child or having to deal with the ridiculousness of folding up a Bugaboo (you'd really think they'd have fixed that by now).

I agree with another reviewer who mentioned this wasn't as good in quality as the Cameleon.
I had my Cameleon for 3 years and when I re-sold it, it was still as good as the day I bought it. That was despite pushing it all over city sidewalks and parks (some very bumpy!) multiple times every single day.

We bought the Donkey when we had our twins last year. It seemed so awesome when I tried it out in the store and it still has many of the features that make Bugaboo one of the most sought-after strollers. Some of the pros:

1. Very easy to assemble. Took me about 30 minutes to put it all together which I think is great for a double stroller.
2. Still feels as smooth as the Cameleon even with double the size. Getting up and down sidewalks is a breeze.
3. I love, love the single hand recline adjustment!
4. It's really nice to have the option of front and back facing and combinations of those.
5. The ability to use it as a single stroller. I have used it only once in the single stroller + basket configuration. It wasn't exactly hard to collapse it and then expand it again later, but I can't imagine doing it very frequently.

The cons, starting with the reason for only 3 stars:

1. The rear wheel is already damaged, 8 months in. Initially the tire kept deflating slightly, so I used the pump to fill the air. As far as I can tell, I never rolled over anything sharp and I can't really make out any holes or rips or tears in the tire. So, I'm not sure what made the tire start deflating so early on. Now, the tire is sort of coming off the rim. The stroller is still under warranty, so Bugaboo is sending me a replacement. The customer service was very pleasant and not too bureaucratic.
