The Urban Pushchair for Inner City Adventures: Meet The Brand New Bugaboo Bee5

So many of us these days are living crazily hectic lifestyles in the city, all while simultaneously raising a family. Like all parents, we have come to expect a lot of the products that surround us; we need to know that the big purchases we’ve made will be up to the job, and be able to meet the huge demands that city life places on us. Cue the Bugaboo Bee5.

The Bugaboo Bee5 is an urban pushchair specifically designed for busy parents, and since 2007, the lightweight, compact fold Bee has been a popular choice for inner city dwellers. The Bugaboo Bee5 sees the brand continue to improve on this compact and light stroller, with even more comfort and styling options, making this the best Bee yet for those urban adventures.

Easier to Accessorize

Bugaboo have done away with the fiddly adaptors a lot of buggy brands rely on to attach essential accessories, and instead, use nifty integrated attachment points for those all important extras, i.e. the cup holder, parasol and wheeled board for older siblings. These parts click easily on and off the pushchair, with absolutely no fuss.

Relax… Improved Comfort

The Bugaboo Bee5 has placed a huge emphasis on comfort – for both child and parent. There’s a height adjustable backrest, and an extended and padded seat, offering comfort that grows with your child. The suspension on this buggy is incredible, the luxurious leather-look handlebar grips offer soft handling, and easy manoeuvring, meaning this buggy offers one helluva smooth ride.

The Bugaboo Bee5 folds easily with one hand – a feature we know is very popular to the My Baba audience when it comes to purchasing a pushchair. The ability for compact fold means you can hop on and off public transport with absolute ease, keeping up with the speed of the traffic – pedestrian and otherwise!

Get Creative! Endless Options for Customisation

We’re huge fans of customisation here at My Baba, and give a big thumbs up to the capability of being able to separate the seat fabric from the seat hardware. This means the colour possibilities are endless, giving you a new-look buggy at minimal cost – making colour coordinating the family so much easier!

Bugaboo have 15 new colours to the portfolio; parents can choose elements from the Core Collection of solid colours, or the Premium Collection of mèlange colours, in addition to the newly introduced Signature Collection of Botanic or Wave prints -perfect for summer. What’s more, you can even go one step further and change the colour of your wheel rims!

Bugaboo have a fabulous customisation tool on their website – you can mix and match colours online to preview what your buggy will look like. Check out this adorable pink (you can tell I’m having a girl!):
