Haha. The names are totally getting worse!



So far, I am loving the canopy...loving the wheels...1 hand recline, 1pc fold, 50lb weight limit. Honestly, I feel like they should've just redesigned the Cameleon! And they have no idea when the US release date will be...ugh.

Only change I'm not fond of is the open basket, I love that it cinches closed...so anything I have in there [extra blanket, cupholder, rain cover...etc.] doesn't fall out everytime I fold the stroller.

Stroller related anecdote: Chloe is strapped into the Stokke, watching TV...*face palm* We are meeting the hubs for lunch, last night he says..."There's no high chairs, bring the Stokke." Ugh. Spent the morning on a scavenger hunt to find it, seat here...cup holder there...where's the chassis, damn movers!? But, it's been so long since we used it, I had to adjust the straps. Once she saw me playing with it, "I sit, I sit!" Fine, get in kid...enjoy Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, I'm having a cup of coffee!!! ;]



Now, I am terrified to look over and make eye contact because she is sitting SO quietly. lol

Oh what you've ladies have done to me.
So I bought that frog back in May of last year for our newest, I never really found a pattern for a new canopy cover so we found all original bugaboo covers and replaced out the whole stroller. It's so blue and beautiful. Plus I matched a gorgeous PPB to it. I love everything ... But the 2pc fold :( It's such a pain sometimes, esp going to Busch gardens or any of the parks here in fl.
So today we went to Macrobaby and picked up the new Quinny Zapp Xtra with the folding seat. So far it's beautiful, we got the natural mavis.
Has anyone played with it yet and have any pro's / con's with the stroller? Folding looked a lot easier than when I got it home on my own and wasn't playing with the broken in demo lol

Why would you do such a silly thing!? ;] Snunkie does custom canopies/footmuffs/liners for the Quinny...http://www.snunkie.co.uk/index.html



And ♥Lauren had a custom set made for her Buzz, you might want to see who made hers [check the topic watch list to find her]!?

We had a Zapp Xtra, but not the one with the folding seat. I liked it with the Maxi Cosi Mico...it's a zippy little thing. But the Bugaboo Bee+ is my go to light weight, so no point in keeping the Zapp around. I think S.daud had a Zapp Xtra as well, pre folding seat as well.

thanks! i got it as a gift at my shower (the bugaboo) but before my shower i ended up changing my mind to save money. i got the bugaboo from a family friend and i told her i was going to exchange it and she said whatever, she just wanted to get me something "big" bc she was proud of me. i was able to get the buzz and other little stuff i needed for the baby with the exchange, so it worked out well.

yup i had a zapp xtra...i had three beefs with it...1. the two piece fold (N/A for u tho!) 2. the fact that it doesnt sit fully upright in rear facing mode and 3. the wheels made the most annoying rattling noises...after I sold it snd used thr Stokke and City Mini GT it was a relief...lol...id rather get something else than the Zapp...even tho its a tiny fold...i just HATED the rattling wheels...

I had the typical "graco travel system" in the beginning with my first... and then and Evenflo travel system... then I started researching when I was pregnant with my third. I needed something to fully function for our lives. I couldn't BELIEVE the options! I discovered Britax. Oh how I LOOOOVED my b-ready. It was fantastic! I could have two kids, it wouldn't tip over, the basket still held a fair amount of crap and it folded- WITH the second seat on. I was in looooove. And then I gave it to my SIL. And I got the b-nimble. Which is a fantastic umbrella stroller that has truly served it's purpose. One of my brakes broke and I called them... they sent me a whole new stroller because they didn't have just the brake part that I needed. How awesome? Yeah. It was awesome.
Now I'm having twins and I'm pretty keen on buying another b-ready. That's how much I loved it the first time around. I would willingly buy another one- but maybe in a different color this time! Hehe
I had used a friend's tandem stroller a few times and couldn't imagine having to push that sucker around all the time. I definitely prefer the inline capabilities. It was still like pushing a single stroller but it was really two! :)



But any recommendations for a double jogger would be awesome! Even if it's side-by-side!
