When life gets chaotic (which feels like 24/7 at the moment) our walks are a chance to reset and come up for air. I pile the pram with snacks and always make a pit stop for caffeine (multiple times) throughout the journey. Fair to say I’ve done a LOT of sanity kms during Corona Virus isolation in Australia with two young kids I have become well acquainted with my Bugaboo Fox. The Bugaboo Fox the third pram in my life and this is how I feel about it:
EASY ON THE EYE:
Yeah yeah I know it’s what’s on the inside that counts (that’s what I tell my kids anyway), but I fell for this sexy Bugaboo Fox instantly on looks alone. The Bugaboo Fox is sleek and sophisticated and draped in luxurious, quality fabrics such as the uber soft leather hand grips. I opted for the black and navy combination with black chassis and haven’t shot a longing glance at another pram on the footpath since.
The Bugaboo Fox looks a million bucks but what surprised me most was how tough she is. The Fox takes on gutters and bumpy terrain like an absolute boss (no coffee spillage) while still remaining agile and smooth to manoeuvre on the streets, even with coffee in hand. You may have guessed by now I also have a thing for coffee.
While I didn’t really know exactly what I wanted in a pram, there was one thing I was certain I DIDN’T want … a bus. The Bugaboo Fox weighs less than 10kgs and isn’t arrogant on the footpath or a selfish parker. Although she does take up a decent amount of boot space, so I generally leave her behind and throw the kids in the trolley at the shops.
The key boxes the Bugaboo Fox ticked which made me make the commitment:
Generous: Large, durable basket. My four year old actually climbed in there once when he refused to walk and it didn’t break. Although I knew I was being heavily judged on the stroll home.
Easy: Fabric removes and cleans with ease.
Simple: Brake smoothly pops on and off, even with bare feet or sandals on.
Not fussy: Quick and simple to fold. Two hands are required but it’s not fiddly.
