Folded cms: 88 x 40 x 31
Handle: Height adjustable
The Bugaboo Bee comes with a silver frame and a black base which can be reversed (forward and backward facing), recline and extend. The handle offers easy one-handed steering and is height adjustable.
The tyres are foam filled and have individual suspension springs making a bump-free ride. You can mix and match the colours of the hood and footmuff (currently they offer black, red, blue, yellow, dark khaki and pink). Included in the price are: frame, sun canopy, shopping basket and raincover.
Originally had a quinny but as Ben grew it didnt fit the boot with the seat attachment so did some research and we bought the Bee. Its great wish we had bought from birth. Everything is washable, its easy to manoevre, only prob is DS head is touching the top of hood now and the Bugaboo customer service we have found to be appauling despite the cost of their products. Still waiting for my break attachments!!!

Bugaboo bee - Simply the best buggy ever! After my son was born I spent months researching buggies until I settled on the Bee. I wanted a lightweight buggy that was also rear-facing, and the Bee beats all comers by a mile. It copes well on grass, gravel and cobblestones (thanks to locking swivel wheels), the suspension gives a smooth ride on city streets and it glides over most curbs effortlessly. I know some people worry it looks a bit small but my son is above the 75th centile for his age and fits just fine and I can definitely see this lasting till he no longer uses it. I've returned to work so the time we share is limited and I love interacting with him in his buggy on the way to and from nursery, which you simply can't do with a forward facing one (I know because we used one while waiting for our Bee to arrive - it's just not the same). Hubby's over 6ft so the extendable handle is a must, and the one-handed fold is very useful if you're catching a bus. With it's huge shopping basket, narrow frame and tiny turning circle the Bee is a dream for taking shopping, and the flat recline with huge hood makes for a cosy sleeping environment for baby. I love the fact that it's so light I can carry it up steps with baby on board, yet it's design feels sturdy and reliable. The Bee is expensive next to others such as Maclarens but then they don't do rearfacing so for me there's little point in comparing the two. I cannot reccommend this buggy enought for urban mums!!! To sum up, the plus point: Sooo light & easy to steer one handed (light enough to carry up and down steps with ease) Rear facing (& collpases rear-facing too) One-handed fold & unfold(great when you're cathcing a bus) Huge shopping basket Surprisingly sturdy & great suspension Extandable handle yet compact when folded & collapses in one piece And to be balanced, the negatives: Not free-standing when folded Expensive No viewing window in hood (hasn't bothered me as I've not used it forward facing) Rain cover not great once baby's legs are long enough to kick it!
