Why I Bought My... Bugaboo Frog

One of the reasons my husband and I chose the Bugaboo Frog was for the reversibility-the baby can face forward and towards you. I found this great articleat About.comabout other reversible strollers. Besides the moreexpensive strollers like the Stokke Xplory, Bugaboo Frog, Cameleon,Gecko and the Quinny Buzz (which is hard to find in the US), the lessexpensive models include Rock Star Baby, Fisher Price Infant toToddler, Hauck I’Coo Infinity and Peg Perego Venezia.

We wanted a bassinet, which the Bugaboo has. We have also read that it’s not good for babies spines to be inthe seated/curled up position for so much time- like they are when theyare in the infant car seat that many people use with a Snap and Go typeframe as a stroller. Yet, you CAN use an infant car seat (Peg Peregoand Graco only) with the Bugaboo. We also liked/needed thesuspension. Living in NYC, you do a LOT of walking and the littleplastic wheels on a $50 stroller were not going to cut it for us. Yes,I know tons of New Yorkers are quite satisfied with their inexpensivestrollers but…

The other reason we chose the Bugaboo Frog is it’s JUST so coollooking. My husband and I are into the way things look so Anya’svehicle was going to have to look cool.

As for the price ($729), I agree- the price is absurd but it had all of the features we wanted.
