Throwback Bugaboo Cameleon At Giggle


In the words of the bard, This was a triumph. I'm making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS. It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.

Bugaboo has released what amounts to its first throwback edition, a 2012 Cameleon outfitted in one of the classic, single color Frog fabrics, navy blue, with an off-white lining. It's like it's 2002 all over again, only with extendable handles and better suspension and stuff.

I tell you, we liked our Cameleon, but when we were hitting the stroller zone the second time around, I found myself jonesing for the Frog. I looked pretty long and hard on Dutch auction sites for a nice vintage Bugaboo, from the days even before they were sold in the US. Instead of the circles logo, they had this kind of New Mexico-ish, petroglyphic snowflake. That's what I wanted. Old School.

But you could never really tell the condition of used strollers; hapless Dutchmen were unsure about packing and shipping; and then, of course, there were the performance improvements, like the front suspension, which were hard to give up. So we soldiered on.

I'd by this one in a second, though. It really is the best $800 stroller in the world.

The Navy/Off-White Bugaboo Cameleon is a limited edition, available while supplies last, only at Giggle. $979. [giggle via publicist]

It's truly very complex in this active life to listen news on TV, so I simply use world wide web for that reason, and obtain the latest news.
