Summary: The parasol is exactly as pictured. It's great for providing extra protection while my baby is in her Bugaboo at the beach or out on walks. It fits in the basket under the stroller, but it would have been ideal if it could fold up more compactly for storage.
Summary: does what it says on the tin good and the best price i could find (for a genuine one) and i looked for days, if you got a bugaboo bee and need a new rain cover buy this you wont go far wrong...
Excerpt: Great, lightweight, looks lovely and can push with one hand! (Great when you need to hold the hand of your other children). Hood is a bit flimsy and I find it can be very temperamental to fold which can be a nightmare when out in public trying to put it in the car. Can be a little bit rattely but nothing major. Would still recommend though despite this and the high end price tag!

Excerpt: My son is 19mo and I have used the bee daily since his birth. We used the base + car seat initially then went onto the main buggy. It is the smallest lightest travel system I have come across that folds without taking the seat off and is extremely easy to manoeuvre. The break on ours works fine still and whilst the wheels have spun a handful of times it has never been regular or posed any issues. Not had any issues with the rain cover.
Excerpt: I loved my bee. Beautiful, lighter weighted than the chameleon and easier to use, transport. However brake was not always working well and wheels would swirl ... But this stroller is so expo sieve that I had mine stollen while at droppin... Could not buy a new one and knowing that I would not even buy one used.
Excerpt: DH and I debated forever over what buggy to buy. On our shortlist: Bugaboo Bee+, Bugaboo Chameleon and the iCandy Cherry. In the end, we went for the Bee+ for two reasons: it was the lightest and it was also slightly cheaper whilst seeming to offer just as much. DD is now 5.5 months and, so far, we both love it.
Summary: The canopy works well with the bee+. Has really good coverage as it comes quite far forward for when baby wants some privacy to sleep. Did find it tricky to attach but once its on, you only really need to take it off to wash!

Excerpt: I researched travel systems extensively to find one that was light, easy to turn in a small space and could fit into a relatively small car boot. The bee fitted these criteria (the only other major contender I had at the end was the icandy cherry) and seemed to be much smaller overall than most other systems. I initially used it with either a maxicosi car seat or the newborn cocoon in. Very happy with both. The cocoon kept my baby so warm and comfy.
Excerpt: If I were being fair the bugaboo bee has both good and the not so good attributes. Aesthetically, I think the bee is very pleasing with good additional accessories like the cocoon/nest for newborns. There is a color choice to suit all. Functionally, the bee is a breeze to collapse and fold up alike. The steering can be off at times, with the front wheels having a mind of there own.
