GOOD PRODUCT WHICH OFFERS EVERYTHING WE CURRENTLY NEED.
suzy patel, Made for Mums
4 February 2008
Summary: Great product but probably not worth the money. However, I wanted something with the ease of movement of a three wheeler, with big back wheels and a non fixed seat option so baby can face me and away and it seemed to be the only product which ticked all the boxes.
Pros: Very lightweight - makes it easy to put in the car and lift up and down stairs etc. The cot is lovely (esp if you add a sheepskin!) and doubles up as her travel bed. Its very easy to turn - has a very small turning circle so great for shops and town. Great back wheels, big and useful for going do...
Cons: Price - seems a bit silly to price it so high - but hey, we still bought it! The cot is placed quite low so the baby feels quite near to the floor - but you get used to it. The chassis is quite complex - a couple of times I have had a new mum blank moment and not been able to collapse the frame. ...
Excerpt: I've love my Bugaboo Gecko! I've had it for 3 years and I bought it second hand so it's a bit old but it's still got plenty of life left and would easily serve another child. Great bargains on eBay if you want a Bugaboo but don't want to spend loads!
Excerpt: My husband picked this up second-hand as a "spare" pram. We paid £60, although I believe that, when new, they are much more expensive. Bugaboo is good at looking good. You've got lots of colours to pick from (ours was bright green) and about a million accessories - footmuff, nappy bag, cup-holder...
Excerpt: I love my gecko! The things I like is the fact you can have baby facing or not, the ease of pushing the pram, the basket is big so you can fit lots on! The brake is easy to use and it's on handle so easy! No scuffed shoes! The wheels come off easily so if you have a small boot you can fit in!

Excerpt: My problem with the gecko is that it doesn't seem to sit up fully-my toddler won't sit in it as is always slightly reclined. The chameleon sits up far more and would have been a better buy. Also, at 2 years old she is already too tall for it and the hood skims her head when I put it up.
A gorgeous pram in a gorgeous colour to hold my gorgeous granddaughter!

Excerpt: When my 20 month old granddaughter was born my daughter bought the Bugaboo Gecko Stroller because she loved the design of the old fashioned looking carry cot, without the heaviness and bulk of using a real carry cot as she had eight years previously with her middle daughter.
Excerpt: Im surprised there no other reviews on this as I think its a really great buggy. Apart from being stylish and a celeb favorite with the likes of Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow, its bright and minimalistic looking. Its an absolute dream to push and I never once had a flat tyre.
