UPDATE: The Bugaboo Buffalo was released in the US in September 2013, retails at $1,129 (I was only 29 bucks off with my prediction :)) and is available NOW in 12 colors at one of my favorite shops for all things baby, Magic Beans!
When it came to choosing a stroller, we did our research and ultimately chose the UPPAbaby Vista vs. the Bugaboo Cameleon (read about our decision-making process here). Recently, we bought a BOB Revolution because we needed a jogging stroller.
And now comes the Bugaboo Buffalo! Although the Buffalo won’t be available in the US for a while, here’s why it looks like it will be a great choice:
- All terrain – this stroller will be able to handle pretty much anything, including sand and snow, with a special two-wheel position and larger wheels. On the downside, the handle won’t be reversible. But there won’t really be a need since the wheels are larger.
- It is a one piece fold!! Unlike the Bugaboo Cameleon C3, this stroller folds with the seat attached. This is one of the number one reasons I still recommend the Vista, but I will seriously reconsider since I always preferred the Bugaboo’s chassis.
- Extendable sun canopy. Our Vista and BOB have pretty long canopies, but the sun still gets in Olivia’s eyes. This one looks like it will have even more coverage.
It will be a bit of a wait here in the US (I’m guessing early 2014), but the Buffalo will be available on March 15 in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Russia and summer 2013 in Australia and New Zealand. This is pure speculation, but my guess is that the price of the Bugaboo Buffalo will be around $1,100 – in between (or maybe even on par with) the Donkey Mono, which currently retails for $1,199 and the Cameleon (C3) currently retails for $979.
