- Bugaboo Buffalo
This is the NEW Bugaboo Buffalo!!
The Bugaboo Buffalo is an all terrain pushchair which looks very much like a Bugaboo Cameleon seat crossed with a single Bugaboo Donkey chasssis. The Bugaboo Buffalo will have a one piece fold with either the seat unit, or the carrycot left on the chassis! The Bugaboo Buffalo will also freestand when folded. However because the Buffalo is a true single stroller, the fold is smaller than the Bugaboo Donkey in Mono mode.
There will be ample luggage storage options – we love that the basket has the depth and shape of the Bugaboo Cameleon basket, but is part mesh and has the open access of the Donkey basket. There appear to be integrated storage clips to hold on the new style Bugaboo changing bag from low down on the handle. The Bugaboo Buffalo can take up to 16kgs (35lbs) of luggage! Thats a lot of shopping!!
There is also a two wheel pull along mode for those who love the beach or walking through snow! However the handlebar will not flip over like the Cameleon handle does. The Bugaboo Buffalo is definitely one for the family who like to get outdoors and go anywhere!
The Bugaboo Buffalo will have a choice of black or sand bases, with tailored fabrics in red, pink, petrol blue, royal blue, off-white and black.
The Bugaboo Buffalo boasts a new style of sun canopy, which is extendable, to give your child extra protection against the wind, sun and rain.
The Buffalo will comfortably take a child from birth to toddler hood. The seat is tall and spacious, and will hold up to 23kgs of child! The seat of the Buffalo is also high to offer your child a good vantage point. We love the swing away bumper bar like the Bugaboo Cameleon³.
We understand that the Buffalo is great to push and has sturdy wheels – two smaller (but not small!) front wheels and two large rear wheels. These will smooth out any bumps in your path whether in the city or across country! Given the similarities with the Bugaboo Donkey chassis, we are not surprised because the Bugaboo Donkey is amazing to push!
The Bugaboo Buffalo weighs 11.9kgs which is nearly 2kgs more than the Bugaboo Cameleon which weighs in at 9.6kgs. However it is 1.1kgs lighter than the Bugaboo Donkey in Mono mode.

The Bugaboo Buffalo is certainly on the top of the 2013 wish list here at Best Buggy!!! We have owned two Cameleon’s and a Donkey, and for us the Bugaboo Buffalo seems to offer the combination of the two Bugaboo pushchairs that we could have only dreamed of!!! With the great reputation that Bugaboo has, the Buffalo should be superb!
