Eyeballls Tue 29-Sep-09 16:37:27

pebbles79 Tue 29-Sep-09 16:39:07

Scorps Tue 29-Sep-09 16:41:58

Nope, i LOVE mine.

Til death do us part grin

traitors angry

They can't be worthy of 360 smackeroonies, surely?

btw, I already have a Frog (4.5 yrs old, was DS1's). I would be insane to buy a Bee too wouldn't I?

Fruitbatlings Tue 29-Sep-09 17:26:28

oh, and why do JL sell them for £417 still? They are £360/70 everywhere else. I thought the were "Never knowingly undersold" hmm

I love mine! Even considering selling my Cam as haven't really used it since got Bee.

Rosa Tue 29-Sep-09 19:54:43

They are cr*p. Totally hate mine. They fact that it reclines, turns on a pin , its compact , oh reversible,lightweight I can get one or the other child in it. Front and rear facing. The only thing I like is the silly price and the very silly price for the travel bag but I needed mine when I was in the Uk for 2 months....Sorry !

ruddynorah Tue 29-Sep-09 20:02:05

mine is really crap. crappy bright blue colour. crappy fold system. forward and rear facing and lies flat, totally inconvenient. AND i got in for a knock down price on ebay. i'm so pissed off hmm

Well, unfortunately I'll have to echo the others - they really are quite nice. But - and overall I still love mine - there are some negatives:

1) My first one's chassis fell apart. Apparently it's held together by 2 screws (or something, I might be making this up), one was never included (or fell out??), and it fell apart. I was walking down the road with ds, then still a tiny baby, thought it was going a bit odd, and within a couple of hours it actually slipped completely, so I had to carry ds home in my arms whilst lugging a damn broken buggy.
Bugaboo did replace complete chassis though, which was good.

2) Heavy to lug up stairs whilst carrying a toddler. I really can't do it. Then, perhaps I'm just a whimp.

3) Difficult to get ds in and out when rain cover in use.

4) Very small snug now ds is a fat toddler. I'm about to buy a Maclaren in the next week or two. Ds is 17months old, but quite chubby.

Still love mine, but thought I'd list some negatives for you.

ruddynorah - How much did you pay for yours on Ebay? Should I just buy a second hand one? Or are they not much cheaper than a brand new one?

LOL @ Rosa

DD is average size 20 months and fits just fine

Rosa Wed 30-Sep-09 12:11:10

My dd is on a diet at 11 mths she is a tubby thing and she has to fit in it for as long as possible my 3.6 yr old fits in it but she is a slim thing envy

I bought mine but it was via e bay and I got a bargain ( new) . Ihad it shipped to Italy and still spent less .

Fruitbatlings Wed 30-Sep-09 20:42:59

Ok, just seen one on Ebay. They want £350 for it, but it also has a "Make me an offer" option.
this one How much would you offer?

Fruitbatlings Wed 30-Sep-09 20:43:36

Thanks for the link btw Rosa smile

BertieBotts Wed 30-Sep-09 20:44:58

I don't like them! I think they look silly! <voice of reason>

<runs away>

Fruitbatlings Wed 30-Sep-09 21:11:48

Thanks Bertie (I used to think the same but for some reason have fallen hopelessly in love with them) - I've pretty much made my mind up now hmm

So how much should I offer for that one on Ebay then?
