Wa-hoo! Bugaboo!!!

Check it out!!! My beautiful Bugaboo!!! I've wanted one of these since Bryn was a newborn. I wanted it so badly that I never even allowed myself to test drive one in any of the baby departments I visited from before Bryn was born!

Finally this last week I decided I needed a compact, reversible, fully reclining pram for Ari. On a whim I checked out ebay, just to see if people were reselling their Bugs yet, and there it was, with a Buy It Now sticker on it! I ended up paying about 1/3 the original rrp, which for a VERY gently used (it seriously looks "As New") is an incredible price.

This Bug is the original "Frog", which is now being superceded by the Cammy. The big differences are that this one has a smaller seat, non-adjustable handle height, non-adjustable suspension... Luckily for me, I WANTED the smaller carriage size (the more compact the better for me), and handle height is well and truly high enough for me (because I'm only average/short), and I don't know from adjustable suspension anyway, rofl, so am not worried about it...

Bryn loves it!

It came with a bassinet, but I realised this afternoon that I actually don't need the bassinet for Ari, and by using the seat exclusively, I can use it for both Ari and Bryn in one trip, simply by inclining or reclining the seat to suit each child...

The pram width is super narrow, so will fit well onto a bus. It has one handed steering, which for me with Ari in the sling and Bryn in the pram will be fantastic! And it's SO LIGHT to push!

Rave, rave, rave!!!


Other pics :)...

I LOVE this look on Ari, he gets this big O mouth look when he's contemplating something new and (to him) curious...


Foot praying...


Here he is wearing a knitted matinee jacket and matching bonnet that my Nanna (dad's mum) sent him a few weeks ago. I really must get out and get a nice card for her and send her a picture!!!

One handed steering is a VERY useful feature for a pram! But I discovered (after buying it) that my pram isn't quite as easy to steer one handed when there's a child in it, LOL. Should have thought to test that in the shop PMSL. Oh well... it doesn't get used that much anyway.

I love the pix, particularly the foot praying one - so cute! And of course, as you know, I love your new pram, can't believe I have pram envy, even though I LOVE both of my prams (and even though I mostly use my slings!). It is *very* cool, you are a lucky duck!
