The Bugaboo Donkey is an extremely versatile high-end stroller for one child, twins or siblings with a small age gap. It was released in 2011. It is the first stroller to be priced at over £1,000.
Its unique chassis can be extended or narrowed in three simple clicks. On the chassis, you can attach one or two seats, carrycots, car seats or any combination of one of these with an optional side basket, which can be also carried as a handbag. The carrycot and the bucket seat textiles are attached to the same frame. The Donkey is only 74 cm wide despite the side-by-side seats. It will pass through regular 80 cm doors easily. However, you should keep in mind that the car seats with adapters widen the stroller. One car seat widens it to 80 cm, two to 86 cm. The large air-filled tires are easy to maneuver and can handle all kinds of terrain. When shopping, you will appreciate the huge basket with high weight capacity.
The stroller is available in different configurations. The Mono is designed for one child with one chassis, a carrycot, a seat and a side basket. The Duo is suitable for siblings of different ages with two frames with seats, one fabric set for the carrycot and a side basket. The Twin is designed for twins, and it comes with two carrycots, two seats and a side basket. In addition, it can also be purchased as a separate chassis and assembled according to your needs.
The Donkey has under gone several improvements. From2012, the exchangeable hoods can be extended. Models since 2014 have a longer brackets attaching the seat/carrycot onto the chassis. Seats from previous years will therefore not fit. Since 2017, the chassis folds more compact and can be folded with the seats or even the carrycots attached. The foam handles were covered with leatherette.
The Donkey also comes in special and limited editions. One of the most popular is the 2016 Weekender with a matching travel bag that fits into the place of one of the seats. There are also the Diesel Denim, or the 2017 collaborations Niark1 and the tiger-patterned We Are Handsome.
