I know this was covered a while ago but I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts to add now the buffalo has been out for bit longer?
Can't decide out of the two! confused

I absolutely loved everything about the Buffalo... Until I tried to fold it in the shop and could barely lift the frame without the seat unit attached! I'm only 23 weeks pregnant, and I'm pretty sure it weighed the same as my toddler grin

Oh no hmm do you mind me asking what you went for/are going for instead?

There was a few other things about the bugaboos that meant they weren't perfect for what I wanted (but this is second baby with a 3 year age gap, so not necessarily the same things as I'd be looking for with just the one) I decided on a Graco Evo, as its light, huge basket, seat is suitable from birth so don't always have to use the carry cot, gorgeous colour (grape) and less than half the price of the bugaboo!

I am sitting on the fence. I have had 2 Cam's, a Donkey and a Buffalo (amongst others). I loved my Cameleon's - they were neat, light etc. and TBH I loved my first one more than my second. But I had an older child on board and I suspect it wasn't as easy to push because of that. I have a Buffalo and I do find it a big pushchair. I love the sturdyness of it, the huge basket, seat unit, push etc. Its fabulous. However in the places I go eg smaller shops, school, nursery, it feels huge. I think as a walking pushchair it would be lovely. But we are very car based and I found it heavy and a bit unweildy to lift into the car - even in two parts. It is just too big for us (and we have a big boot). Maybe going back a year when we walked more, I might have had a different response because I loved pushing my Donkey. I think however the Donkey feels neater smaller although perceptually the side basket makes it feel wide.
