Bugaboo for a 20 month old?

Our nipper has broken, i have found a bugaboo for £100. Thinking of buying but wondering if it would be worth it? Will she be too big?... I'm drawn by the parent facing as we've never had one of those before. But will she even want to go parent facing?

Depends how often you use it. We have a cheap stroller which languishes in the boot of the car as day to day dd 20mo walks or goes in a shopping trolley. She is far too nosy to go parent facing now. Would be a total waste for us!

Also, my nephew 17mo is too big for his bugaboo now

If it's the cameleon then no, I bought one at about 12 months and regret it. If it's the bee I wish I had bought that as in still using a buggy for school run at 2.5

Depends what type.

My tall 23m dd fits in the chameleon no problem.

It can face in or out.

Do you mean bugaboo chameleon? She won't be too big, my 5 year old used for 6 weeks when he broke his leg and looked slightly like a large child in a pram but still fitted fine, straps did up loads of space and head fitted under shade

We have a bee and my 2 year 8 month old monster still fits in it. And he's huge! I wouldnt buy one for him at that age though, it was his baby pushchair too. I think you would be better off with a stroller

Sorry, it's a cameleon. I had a bee for my son (oldest version) and tbh hated the rickety wheels.
I'd like a stroller but with decent chunky wheels, and whilst I was looking came across this cam for £100. So far, it's the cheapest 2nd hand pram I've seen which doesn't have flimsy wheels

My nephew looked ridiculously large in the Cameleon by the time he was 2, so my sister had to put it away and use a stroller instead. He was 10 weeks prem so a small child too. His brother had outgrown it by 17 months as his head was over the hood.

Iuswanyname - this is exactly what I was looking for at the time - a sturdy off road stroller. They don't exist :-(

That said if you only walk and don't have to fold the pushchair the chameleons are really lovely pushchairs but they arnt an easy fold stroller by any stretch
