2014 – Shortlisted for 'Best Multiple, Twin or Tandem Pushchair or Accessory' Award!

The Bugaboo Donkey can be used as a single or double buggy and is a comfy ride either way. It's suitable for newborns and toddlers, and steers well on all terrains.The seats can be forward or rear facing and recline independently. The hood is a good size but the storage basket is quite small. 

The pushchair is very wide, even in ‘single mode’, and struggles to get through narrow doorways and hallways, shopping aisles can be a problem too! It’s even big when folded, which makes transportation and storage complicated. The rain covers are different sizes (and fit differently) but are not appropriately marked – some good advice is to figure them out before you leave the house (avoiding a certain drenching when you can’t get it right in the moment)!

It’s an expensive product but if you’ve got cash to spend, you won’t be disappointed.

Review

Expensive, but amazing quality and superb flexibility make this a deluxe convertible choice. It is however, big and heavy, so make sure you have the muscles and the storage space to handle it.

If you can afford it, you’ll appreciate the incredible flexibility this innovative pushchair offers. The Donkey works with any combination of one or two pushchair or carrycot-style seats, or car seats, meaning that you can use it for one child, two children of different ages, or twins. 

When you don’t need a double, three simple clicks convert it back to a single with a shopping basket to the side.

It has lots of handy features like reversible seats, adjustable handles and you can operate most of the functions with just one hand, leaving the other free.

Despite the size, it’s easy to push and maneuver and the large wheels means that it gives a smooth ride on rough terrain. It’s heavy, though, and tricky to get in and out of a car and does take up a lot of storage space. Make sure you have room in your car boot and a decent sized hallway to park it in before you part with your cash. The Donkey is at the top end of the price scale, but worth it for the superior engineering and flexibility.
