Rated 1 out of 5 by lavned Unresolved Technical Glitches
Unfortunately this product has several severe problems that they have not been able to fix including significant "shimmying" in the wheels (as they have termed it) which makes the pram impossible to push foward. This occurs if you walk very quickly (which I do). They took over a month to send a "fix" which included fabric washers which did not solve the problem. Additionally, the carriage on one side did not click in and they still have not resolved that problem either, causing my daughter to sit perpetually twisted slightly in one direction. Sadly, their customer service is very poor and they take a very long time to respond to any matter. As they are a European based company, their service tends to be more European than American... If you are choosing between this product and another I would suggest you go with the other pram.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mariana Manuevers well and is narrow
After much speculation I decided on the bugaboo bee. I go to restaurants often and walk many hills here in the city. This stroller has been the perfect combo of a stroller that maneuvers easily and is narrow enough to take to the crowded restaurants and shops here in SF without feeling like I am in the way. Also, being able to easily push and steer with one hand is a major bonus. It's a bit awkward to lift once folded but I still think it deserves 5 stars. I also like that it folds in one piece. Would definitely recommend!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Zebra82 Not the best purchase
Pros: maneuverable, light weight, easily broken down, fits through small spaces, rides amazing, used from newborn to present (6 months)
Cons: Have to buy all accessories except rain cover. The accessories are expensive so you might as well get the Cameleon or Frog which have prams. If you or your significant other is good at putting things together you should be fine. However, others may find the online videos confusing. If you have a second child this stoller only offers a board for the older child to stand on. On the other hand, the UPPPA has some sort of attachable seat that you can use for the older child which is a lot more practical. If I had to do it all over again I'd probably get the BOB since I had to buy a jogging stroller after realizing that going to the gym was not going to happen for awhile and/ or the UPPA if you want most of the accessories to come with the stroller.
Good luck and happy shopping!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by alyssg Love the bee!
I did a lot of research before buying a stroller for my first child. Now that she is here, I have to say I love the bee! It is compact and easy to use and rides so smoothly even over the cobblestone streets near our house. Highly recommend.
