Expert Review: With a simple click of three latches on the frame, the unique design of the Bugaboo Donkey expands from a single stroller with a side luggage basket to a double stroller. Parents will appreciate the reversible seats, interchangeable bassinets, easy recline and extendable handlebar. Plus, both the bassinet and seat can be used independently of the stroller for midday naps at Grandma's house or giving your child a seat at your park playdate. The all-terrain tires handle everything from grass and gravel to snow and sand but do require pumping up. The folding process involves a number of steps and isn't compact. But the folded stroller does stand on its own.

What We Love: Seat versatility; ability to grow as your family grows; using seats/bassinets independent of stroller; maneuvering; extendable handlebar.

What We Wish It Had: Peek-a-boo windows; more compact fold; smaller price tag; included accessories like cup holders and parent compartment.

Great For: Twins; parents who don't need to fold up their stroller; buying one stroller to grow with your family through multiple children; the ability to easily switch from a double stroller to a single with storage; varied terrains.

Bottom Line: The unique expandable frame means one stroller can last you through a growing family. But the price tag and size may be too hefty for some parents.

Parent Rating:
"My favorite feature for my child had to be the comfort of the seat. Both the bassinet and child seat material and design are very comfortable."

"A nice feature of this stroller is that you can adjust the length of the handle depending on your height, and it was very simple to do. I also like that you can have the seats face you when your child is smaller or away when they are a little older."

"I was a little disappointed in the size of the underseat storage considering the size of this stroller. My diaper bag had to be shoved in and didn't leave much additional room for anything else. For smaller items the space is easily accessible from the front and back of the stroller."

"The maneuverability is the best feature of this stroller. I was able to do circles with the double stroller using one hand. That was pretty cool."

"It is a very large stroller, so maneuvering through a store when using as a double is rather difficult. I can't imagine taking this stroller to the mall or shopping. It is just too wide for maneuvering through doors and aisles."

"The first couple of times I tried folding the stroller, I found it very difficult. You need to press in two buttons, which because of the distance apart it is a little awkward, but with a little practice it got much easier."
