8 Reasons You’ll Love The New Bugaboo Donkey 5

Bugaboo has updated its award-winning pushchair to bring you the brand new, side-by-side Donkey 5. Jam-packed with lots of new features to make it even better than before, the Donkey 5 is available in up to 30 new colour combinations for a truly customisable pushchair the whole family is going to love.

The Donkey 5: Bugaboo’s side by side double pushchair

There’s so much newness in the updated Bugaboo Donkey 5 and we’re here to give you the run-down.

1. Designed to grow with your family

The Donkey 5 is made for adventure. Designed to grow with your family, this pushchair offers unrivalled versatility when it comes to keeping siblings close – even from birth. Bugaboo’s clever design means this pushchair is easily convertible depending on your family’s needs. It can change from mono to duo mode and back with three simple clicks. What’s more, you can even add a buggy board to transport three children on one stroller!

2. The Donkey 5 is smaller than you think…

You might need to see it to believe it, but the Bugaboo Donkey 5 is smaller than you think. In mono mode, it measures only 60cm wide. The side luggage bag can carry up to 10kg, and the under-seat basket carries another 10kg, so you can stash changing bags and shopping with ease. In double/twin mode, the width comes to 74cm, which is incredible when you think the global regulation size for door width is 80cm. The upshot? You won’t have to worry about getting out and about with two little ones.

3. Improved ease of folding and unfolding

The pushchair’s updated ergonomic design means you can fold and unfold the pushchair with complete ease. The new and improved unfold is thanks to a nifty friction lock, that allows you to unfold the frame without the hassle of operating any buttons.

4. Higher seat and bassinet for closeness and connection

The Bugaboo Donkey 5 has been designed to enhance the closeness and connection between you and your little passengers so you can enjoy every outdoor adventure together. The new bassinet height of 51cm and the seat height of 57cm from the ground make it easier for you to access and communicate with your children.

5. Advanced breezy bassinet

This stroller is perfect for newborns. Its new ventilation system works to quickly regulate your baby’s temperature, so they can be comfortable 365 days a year, whether you’re at the shops or  busy enjoying the great outdoors. We love how the soft transparent mesh of the bassinet gives your baba a glimpse of the world around them, and their siblings when used in twin mode.

6. Integrated accessories attachment points

There’s nothing clunky or cumbersome about the Bugaboo Donkey 5, so you won’t ever find yourself wrestling with your buggy mid-trip. This stroller offers seamless integration with all Bugaboo accessories. For the ultimate in future-proofing, you can attach a wheeled board to the pushchair so older siblings can jump on when they’re tired. There’s also the obligatory cupholder for your bottle of water to keep you refreshed on the go.

7. Quick-click harness with soft shoulder pads

The Bugaboo team covered all bases when it comes to this pushchair upgrade. The pushchair boasts super-soft shoulder pads offering extra comfort, while the quick-click harness with 5-point buckle and straps can be secured independently, so you and your little adventurer can be ready for take-off in seconds.

8. Exciting new colour palette and premium detailing

For the ultimate stylish adventure, Bugaboo’s new on-trend colour palette gives you the opportunity to create a pushchair in a whole host of super-sophisticated hues. From vibrant tones to muted neutrals, along with Bugaboo’s new premium graphite frame, you can have fun tailoring your pushchair to suit your very own personal taste. Bravo, Bugaboo!

Heelys Rolls Into Spring With New Collection

Heelys, the original two-in-one wheely shoe launched in 2000, is preparing for the upcoming Easter holidays with its new spring collection. Ideal for encouraging an active, healthy lifestyle, the stylish designs will ensure kids (big and small) will roll through the holidays with ease.

The collection consists of 19 designs, including three brand new Heelys shapes: Reserve Ex, Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood. The Reserve Ex has a basketball shoe style, while the Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood tap into the current Y2K trend for an extra chunky sole.

Match your Heelys to your mood, with designs split across two main aesthetics – a darker colour scheme vs. a lighter, spring-inspired palette. Think camouflage print, graffiti text and paint drips contrasting with pastel colours, tie-dye, metallic laces, foil and rainbow print.

Available in the UK and Europe on the Heelys website and retailers, the collection is available in sizes C12-7 across single or two-wheeled styles. RRPs range from £49.99 to £69.99.
