The Bugaboo Donkey is a side by side double pushchair which is perhaps not as wide as you think - it’s party piece is that it can magically (well it’s not really magic) transform into a single pushchair. The Donkey 5 has not lost these elements but it does have some exciting NEW features, never seen before on a Bugaboo Donkey.
The carrycot is now a breezy carrycot giving all year round temperature control. We love this feature and think that it is a great addition to the carrycot, and one that parents will love and use during the summer months.
There is an improved fold making folding the Bugaboo Donkey even easier than it as before. Bugaboo have updated the fold mechanism to reflect that of the Bugaboo Fox. It is quicker, easier and less likely to trap your fingers!
The seating position is now higher on the Bugaboo Donkey 5, 3cm to be precise - and for us, this is wonderful news. When in situ whether as a single, duo or twin set up, the seat unit, carrycot, side luggage basket and car seat will all now be higher than on previous Bugaboo Donkey models. This is an aspect that is beneficial for both the child and the parents, not only making eye contact and verbal communication easier but also lifting little one away from passing dogs!
Another improvement on the Bugaboo Donkey 5 is the new quick click harness with even softer shoulder pads, making little one’s journeys even more comfortable than before.
Finally Bugaboo have included integrated accessory points on the Donkey 5 - no more adapters are required for your cup holder. In addition, the adapters for the Bugaboo Ride On board will now be built into the chassis - again making life easier for parents.
As you would probably come to expect with a new pushchair launch comes new colour, 7 in fact and a new graphite chassis - which we love! The Bugaboo Donkey has, for some time, been a favourite choice for parents looking for pushchair for one, a pushchair for siblings and a pushchair for twins. The improvements on the Donkey 5 have enhanced this already popular product and we are sure that parents will love the improvements.
