Summary: Love the parasol, its very cute because it matches with my babys stroller. The only downside is that it doesnt move, the the sun hits my baby face Id like to be able to move it but doesnt have that option.
Excerpt: I love my Bee Plus because it's so lightweight, easy to fold, big shopping basket, steers beautifully, massive hood and only takes up a third of the car boot. The best feature is that it is both parent and world facing, unusual for such a light pram. It does feel flimsy considering how much it costs and it does fly away with the wind if you don't use the wrist strap, but the weight is a selling point.

Excerpt: We thought for a long time when considering our pushchair and selected the bee due to it being lightweight, small and easy to manoeuvre around shop isles, however there are a number of severe issues with this product which have put me off Bugaboo forever 1) The cocoon accessory which costs around £70 lost its shape after its 1st wash and the bugaboo transfer on the top peeled off!
Excerpt: Pros: Light to push and steer Big hood to shade from sun Fairly big basket Adjustable handle great for small car boots/bus Parent and forward facing Adjustable seat base for growing child Cons: I found it to feel quite cheap and rickety - very suprising considering the price Always had to remember to put the break on when I wasn't holding it as it would 'wander' off in the slightest breeze , quite scary if a small baby was in it!
Excerpt: I have owned my bugaboo bee plus since november 2011 when my youngest little boy was born, I had previously used a mothercare MY3 (never again would I use a 3 wheeler!!) I brought the complete package from an independent retailer online for £898, for that I got the bee plus, cocoon, hood, footmuff, maxi cosi carseat, carseat adapter, raincover and carseat raincover and carry bag I purchased the buggy board separate.
Excerpt: We bought the Bee after reading many positive reviews. We put a lot of thought into it given the incredibly expensive price tag and for the first few months, it was amazing. I loved this pram, it moved through London with ease and is so light. However, I am massively disappointed. We have had to replace pretty much the entire pram. It is shoddy and dangerous. Everyone I know with the Bee has had the 'shimmying' wheels. You can't push it forward, let alone run for a bus.

Excerpt: I bought this buggy new in June 2008 for newborn DS1 and loved it. Easy to push, lies flat, snug, etc. Unfortunately in the last 6 months (since I started using it mainly for DS2 and just out of warranty) the handle clips on both sides have broken which means that the height adjuster is knackered and requires duct tape to stop it sliding about. This is (according to a quick Google) not an uncommon problem.
Excerpt: I hate my bugaboo bee. I have the first model and understand that it has been greatly tweaked since then but I've had it two years and it's had to have three major repairs (one new seat unit, two new frames) and yesterday the back wheel fell off! I bought it because I liked its looks, it was parent facing and it was lightweight. The weight was very important to me because I have to lug it up and down five stairs to my front door.
