Complete this sentence: I had a Bugaboo Bee and didn't like it ...

Bee's are rubbish though. It was so hard to fold, and can't be done with one hand. Bits kept falling off it. My 18 month old looked like she barely could fit inside it, the accessories all broke, the wheels shimmied everywhere and the brake didn't work.

Worse five hundred quid ever spent.

Felt like it would snap or my child would fall out of the side.

Mac xt all the way!

I hated my bee. We used a maclaren triumph and a sling until the versa came out. My mum had a bjcm which she loved but has got my maclaren one now she's changed cars.

There won't be any more Mothercare 20% off codes now sad They are in store ones only so I have heard.

Just to add there's not much difference between the Bee and the Scoot folded. The Bee is longer (by15cms) but the Scoot is wider (by 10.5cms) and deeper (by 5cms). The more square fold of the Scoot makes it fit into my car much better. Plus the Scoot freestands whereas the Bee really needs a wall to be balanced against. The Scoot seat doesn't flap when folded like the Bee.

I hope you like your Bee. Its a good pushchair.

Royal blue! I'm quite excited now :D

Go for it, you know you want to. And they sell really well so if you change your mind you'd get almost what you paid for it. Go on..what colour are you getting?

I saw the scoot a couple of weeks ago I also love it but it really doesn't fold down very small unfortunately and would be a nightmare to travel with!

Thanks everyone, I am hovering over the buy button for the bee and this somehow seems like an impossible decision. I think I will go for it!

I lurved my bee .....sorry!

Sorry, love mine. Have had many pushchairs and I keep coming back to it. I'm just in the process of selling my others as the Bee does everything I need a pushchair to do.

Do you really like the Scoot ?
I'm so tempted to bring one over to Oz, just waiting for a 20% off mothercare code

Tiggywunkle Fri 25-Jan-13 02:17:54

Just to add, thats a like for like replacement in my book - I have a basic set of pushchairs and if one arrives that is a similar size, weight, fold size, and functions in a similar way, then the old one goes ie I am always trying to replace with something better but like for like.

There's loads of other good pushchairs including the Baby Jogger Versa - in fact all the Baby Joggers are great. I have an Easywalker June and I love my iCandy pushchairs.

Tiggywunkle Fri 25-Jan-13 02:14:33

Do you really want the full list since I got my Bee????????? We could be here a long time!
Being honest the Bee is still here - much against my better judgment because I couldn't find anything as small and neat folding with the seat in either direction.....until now.....and I will finish your sentence with the one pushchair that will replace my Bee......

....the Stokke Scoot!

The fold is fantastic, but I got rid of mine because I'm too much in love with my Cameleon. I'm tempted to hang onto it for my grandchildren that's a really bad start to grandparenting, isn't it?

RooneyMara Thu 24-Jan-13 16:54:16

I have to admit the folding mechanism is great. It really did look like a bee!

blackteaplease Thu 24-Jan-13 14:12:25

I love mine too. It's on dc2, still in excellent condition.

wonkylegs Thu 24-Jan-13 14:09:45

Sorry I loved my Bee but it really depends what you need it to do. Mine was perfect for our situation and where we live but I can see situation where it wasn't so great.

Mosman Thu 24-Jan-13 14:07:34

A phil and teds I think was the replacement

Thingiebob Thu 24-Jan-13 14:03:57

Babyjogger! Awesome compared to the sack of shit that is the Bugaboo Bee.

HappyJoyful Thu 24-Jan-13 10:52:22

can't say I had one and not even sure they all still have them - but loathe, irrationally, the white wheels.

RooneyMara Thu 24-Jan-13 10:49:45

Well I haven't even had one and I still don't like it! Having seen one rattle down a subway with very wonky wheels and a frustrated owner.

And having been shown one in the shop and seeing it had NO SIDES. Where do you keep the dummies/bottles/old biscuits?!

I'd look at a BJ versa if I were you. <vicarious>
