Bugaboo donkey or buffalo????
7

Babycino81 · 16/07/2013 22:03

I'm expecting my 1st baby and have my heart set on a bugaboo. Initially, I thought ill get the donkey as I'm planning another baby v soon after but have been dissuaded by various people in case it 'tempts fate'. So, as I'm back to the drawing board, I now have my eye on the buffalo but still hanker after the donkey somewhat..... Any experienced owners advice would be really appreciated!!!!

Donkey fold is massive,buffalo's should be slightly more compact...

The Buffalo is LOADS more compact than the Donkey fold!! Loads more!!
This is the Buffalo next to the Cameleon with photos of both folded. I thought the Cameleon was flat, but the Buffalo is flatter!! Its easy to go and see a Cameleon and a Donkey folded in a shop to get an idea of comparative size.
I have had 2 Donkeys and whilst I loved them, I never quite logically and perceptionally got used to the seat being off centre and having the side basket. I didn't like that people stepped aside to let me through either. I have ordered a Buffalo because having had 2 Cameleon's also, I see the Buffalo as being a really lovely combination of the two pushchairs - although the Buffalo really is more like the Donkey than the Cameleon to use and push etc. I can't wait.
You can always sell your Buffalo and buy a Donkey later if a future age gap requires one! Keep all the Buffalo boxes and paperwork :)

I've ordered the buffalo and I saw a display model in John Lewis on Oxford Street today. It's gorgeous!

I've ordered it but without seeing a display model, very jealous! Glad to hear it looks lovely in real life though.

I ordered it without seeing a display model too. Was glad to see it in real life though. I'm sure you know, but Sept 1st is the first date stores can let them out the door so I'd imagine lots more places will have display models then
