I have seen one on ebay near me and wondered if it was worth bidding. We have tried the bugaboo chameleon and liked it but i have read reviews that say the gecko isnt as good - i.e the seat is too small? A new one is totally out of our price range and seem to go for alot second hand as well so our choices are possibly this or a cheaper travel system. Are these ok I dont know much about this kid of pushchair! also can you use a buggy board with this?
yes the buggy board will fit, the gecko is smaller seat, no suspension, no adjustable handle and no bumper bar, i think it is the same as the frog but the frog has a bumperbar, i had a cam but sold it on a few years ago, i have been looking at buying another second hand, as i want someting i can colour change, looked at the geckos and frogs but could not bring my self to buy one, so i paid the extra and got a cam again as i think i would regret getting one of the others, you will get a good resale for it, look at the thread about the difference between 1st gen and 2nd gen, mine is a 1st
yes i would not go for one of them, i had a pliko which are the same and not that great, have also read they are heavy is push and lift, and baby would only be facing you for max of 5 months then its forward facing. if you look and wait you would get a cam for 300 plus postage as i have seen them go for this on ebay, granted the ones that won't post go for less. will have a think
The Gecko seat is the exact same size as the Cameleon seat. I have a Gecko and it's fantastic! The handle is a good middle of the road height, the suspension is great and it is so easy to push. You should be able to get it a lot cheaper than £300 with extras (I'd say £150 or less easily).
Other options for less than £300 second hand would be a Babystyle Oyster, OBaby ZeZu, Concord Neo, Joolz Day, Micralite Toro.
