Excerpt: I was unimpressed with this Bugaboo Bee Stroller. It really bummed me out because I thought it was such an adorable stroller. I loved the shade of pink it came in! I found a good deal and decide to go for it.
Summary: I borrowed this buggy to use with my toddler when visiting a friend who had just had a baby. Perhaps for her new born it was ok, but i found it very clumbsy and unstable to use with my toddler. It was not easy to change from rear to forward facing.
Pros: forward and rear facing, from birth to 4 years.
Cons: fiddly to change from forward to rear facing. Could not manage to change the back rest height to use the hood for my toddler or adjust the seat. felt like a wonky trolley when pushing it. Very unstable to get up onto the kerb when crossing the road or getting into shops. Not easy to push at all. ...

Excerpt: I was initially pleased with this pram but like many others have subsequently had issues with some design faults. Most recent is that the handle bar doesn't stay up. I've had this before (when the pram was within warranty) and bugaboo replaced the part.
Excerpt: When everything is working as it should, this pram is easy to steer and smooth. However,two really annoying design faults make this pushchair, in my opinion, a bad buy. Firstly, the adjustable height handles are good. Unfortunately the clips that secure them in place wear out very quickly.

Excerpt: Considering its considered the must have pushchair for any wannabe we were very disappointed with the build quality and ease of use. Very disappointed with it as a whole so we sold it and bought the Jane Rider instead to replace it.
Excerpt: I've owned this pram for almost 2 years and I regret buying it. The only positive I can think of is that it is lightweight, which is also part of the problem. It's not sturdy and not built to last. We use this pram almost every day and it makes me want to tear my hair out.
Excerpt: This is a buggy to stay away from. Wheels are dangerous, the handle won't lock, bugaboo bee customer services are really slow. This is the case of the emperors new clothes, don't let the price tag fool you as it did me. big regret
" Rubbish pram. Too expensive and numerous design faults…"

Excerpt: I cannot understand why this pram gets such great reviews. It costs much more than other makes but in my opinion is not worth the money. There are a number of design faults. I have owned my pram for five months. First of all one of the back wheels has started to spin.
Excerpt: What a fashionable piece of tat. Seriously you'd think between the wheel "shimmying" and the frequent frame misalignment that this is a pushchair better consigned to the history books as nice looking but totally useless.
Excerpt: I have had a bugaboo bee for 2 months, and onto my second one. The seat does not come out of its slots easily when changing seat, not does it click back in as easily. In addition, if the universal footmuff is used whilst the buggy is parent facing, it is extremely difficult to apply brake, and then...
