The Bugaboo Cameleon set the standard for all other strollers in the luxury modular market. Despite an aging design, the Cameleon still holds its own against newer designs by combining popular features with an ever-expanding array of color options that allows each parent to express their personality. The Cameleon is currently available in 90 color combinations comprised of six base fabrics and 15 interchangeable liners which are easily removed from both the stroller seat and included bassinet for machine washing. Bugaboo's Cameleon is a bit smaller and lighter than most of its competitors though under seat storage is the only aspect that suffers from the size as space for the child remains comparable. Unlike most newer strollers, the Cameleon cannot fold with the seat or bassinet attached, however, there is a convenient carry handle which allows parents to transport the entire package folded with one hand.

I first have to point out that the Bugaboo Cameleon it is simply the easiest rolling stroller on the market. Although the Baby Jogger City Select is a close second in this qualification, there is a noticeable difference thereafter. In other respects the Cameleon may be showing its age a bit. Although it has many of the same features of newer stroller models, the Cameleon's mechanisms are a bit less refined than even lower priced alternatives (ex. the telescoping mechanism on the handlebar is a two-step process whereas others adjust at the push of a single button). The Cameleon also folds awkwardly though most parents get used to it and develop a routine within a few days of purchase. Personally, I find the biggest drawback is that there is no height adjustment for the shoulder straps on the stroller seat's five point harness... this oversight renders the straps virtually useless when the child reaches a certain size. Never the less, the Bugaboo Cameleon is a great stroller with personalization options that make it worthy of consideration by anyone shopping for a new stroller.
