Bugaboo Donkey Pushchair Base 1.1

Product information

Meet the Bugaboo Donkey; the convertible pushchair for kids and goods that is fully adaptable and expandable, making it ideal for growing families. In just three clicks it can be converted from a mono pushchair to a full-sized duo pushchair and back again. Ideal for your first child, second child, both or twins. It's the compact pushchair that's big on storage space.

With an easy on piece fold that’s self standing for quick storage, the Bugaboo Donkey 1.1 now features an all new fold that means it can be stored even more compactly when the wheels are removed. The improved chassis is now only 24cm high when folded. You'll also find an improved wrist loop and secondary locks on both folding locks. The compact design is 60cm wide in mono configuration and 74cm wide in the Duo configuration. Featuring reclinable and reversible seats to suit you and your family’s needs, which can be operated with just one hand for easy control.

The big swivel wheels provide a smooth journey and help steer over rough terrain, furthermore you can adapt from 4 to 2 wheels for use in snow or sand.

Bugaboo Donkey is packed with spacious luggage option which allows for additional storage when on the go, the expandable side basket can carry up to 5kg of goods and the under seat basket has a 10kg capacity.

Additional functional features include height adjustable handlebars, footbrake and a 5 point harness to keep little ones tucked in.

Compatible with one or two Maxi-Cosi infant carriers (adaptors sold separately)

Do I need a Mono, Duo or Twin?

The Mono is suitable for one child, the Duo is ideal if you have two children of different ages and the Twin is designed for two children of the same age. The Mono features a carrycot that transforms into a seat when your child is older. The Duo configuration features a seat for an older child and a carrycot that adapts into a chair when your younger child gets older. The Twin formation includes two carrycots, for younger babies, that transform into seats as your twins grow up. The seats and carrycots can also be used independently of the chassis.

Editors Notes

In 1994 two men had an idea that revolutionised an industry and created one of the most sought after pushchair brands. In 1999 the first Bugaboo Classic appeared on the streets of Holland and since then they launched the Bugaboo Cameleon in 2005, the more compact Bee in 2007 and then the versatile Donkey in 2012.

Q & As

Bugaboo Donkey Pushchair Base 1.1 5 5 3 3
Didn't disapoint I brought this for my new born and Toddler. My biggest concern was my eldest not fitting in the seat as the Cameleon bugaboo was getting too small for him, but so far we are fine as there is a bit more head room due to the hood sitting a bit higher off the seat. I love the ease at which I can move it around. It is very versatile and is a pleasure to use. I am positive I will keep using it for future babies. Fabulous service from Bluewater team as usual. 06 January 2014
Bugaboo Strikes Again! We got our Donkey two years ago so this review is a bit late... but perhaps that's a good thing. Two years on, it still looks great and wheels brilliantly. Easy to push with one hand. Our children are now three and two years old and our third baby is due any day. The Donkey has evolved with our family, particularly with the recent addition of the buggy board. Worth every penny! 22 May 2013
Versatility at its best. The Bugaboo Donkey has great versatility being able to grow from a single mode pushchair to a double (or can be purchased for twins) as your growing family requires by purchasing the required accessories. Packed with features to ensure your little one has a comfortable ride over all terrains, plenty of storage space for you. Several colour combinations of base and tailored fabrics are available for you to choose from. John Lewis website gives all the information – come and try it for yourself! 13 December 2012
