"Great if you do a lot of walking…"
We have the buffalo as our only pram and really love it, but suspect it's not for everyone.
Steers like a dream and ploughs through potholes/cobbles/fields etc... without waking baby
Bassinet is roomy and comfortable and the chair is great too
Carries a huge amount of luggage
Easy to fold and take apart - surprisingly compact in 2 parts, we can fit it, with other luggage into the back of a Toyota Yaris
Has options for baby facing you or facing out in pushchair mode
It's big - in pram mode it looks large on buses and in cafes, but actually I find it fits into places remarkably well and it's probably a bit deceptive
It's heavy - we live in a flat and the bottom half lives folded up downstairs so we only ever carry the top part around, I wouldn't have bought it if I was intending to carry the base anywhere
It's not cheap - but it should easily last until PFB is walking and do for any future DCs tooRead moreLess
"Massive, sturdy, love it!…"
I'll be honest, the Buffalo in carrycot mode is huge! No way we'd get away with it being our only pushchair; we have a Bee as well that we bought when we were expecting my toddler. The Buffalo gets used for weekend walks, trips to friends' houses and holidays. The Bee gets used if we're going into town, using public transport or out for a meal.
It's the sturdiest, roomiest pushchair I've ever known. The carrycot is easily big enough for bub to sleep in until 6m+. We went abroad recently and it was brilliant, we used it on the beach, it carried baby and loads of bags at the airport and she slept in it most nights parked next to our bed. We walk with it at the weekends and it will take our 2 year old as well as the baby when she gets tired.
It's easy to fold, a dream to steer and generally ox-like. I'm glad we bought it (given that we have a Bee as well, not sure I'd be quite so enamoured if it was our only option).Read moreLess

"High Quality Beautiful Buggy but large…"
Folds down into one piece and stands up on its own.
Can be folded down into two pieces by removing seat for even smaller storage.
The sun canopy unzips to expand further, which is great to keep the wind and rain out or to encourage sleep.
It has a separate bassinet so can be used from birth.
It can be adapted to fit a car seat.
It has lots of storage underneath for bags.
It is very easy to unclip the seat from the base to make it forward or rear facing.
Large range of colours.
Folded down into one piece it would be too large for smaller boots and the seat and possibly wheels would have to be removed.
It is quite heavy - 27lb.
Maxi Cosi car seat adapters have to be bought separately.
At £859 it is at the higher price end.
As you can see, there aren't many cons to this buggy. It is very clever, its ability to be pushed one handed and its smooth ride is excellent and it is honestly a beautiful buggy. You can easily and see how high quality it is and how much thought and time has gone into the design. It is definitely a buggy I would be proud to own.Read moreLess

"Fabulous, smooth ride, joy to steer, baby loved it…"
Have had my buffalo for 6 months, I also have a bee+.
In newborn mode, the baby is lovely and warm, nicely covered up and cosy. You can fold the buffalo down in one piece, however in carrycot mode it is still very bulky.
The hood comes much further forward than other bugaboos, in bright sunshine I didn't need to use an umbrella.
The basket is easy to get too, lots of room and hold loads
Love this buggy, wouldn't be without itRead moreLess
