I was lucky enough to attend the red carpet (seriously) launch of the Bugaboo Donkey at giggle’s Soho location last night. I’ve watched enough videos of the mono to duo stroller, so I kind of knew what to expect. High function, fashionable and smart, the Donkey didn’t disappoint. But it was better touching it! I wasn’t content to gaze, I wanted to play with this $1600 ride! Was it as good as the hype?

In a word, yes! It’s expensive, but for city parents who may not own a car and will use it through two or more children… it’s going to get lots of use, is pretty easy to keep neat and still have resale value at the end. And the push is divine.
Skylar loved it and I had the 5 point harness adjusted to fit him in about a minute (it was so easy). He loved sitting upright (probably because we still keep him in the Cameleon Bassinet). It looked great..and I loved seeing a one piece fold from Bugaboo. Now to find the $$$ to get one!

My red headed baby boy made WNBC NY’s coverage of the Donkey, reporter Ida Siegal called it the “Mercedes of Strollers” – go here to watch the clip.
Want one? I’d suggest calling giggle to get on the already full waiting list.
Disclosure: As much as I’d love it, giggle or Bugaboo did not let me go home with the Donkey.
