The new 2014 Bugaboo Bee³ is essentially a new updated version of the classic Bugaboo Bee Plus. The Bugaboo Bee³ can now take a hard bottomed carrycot for a newborn baby. The carrycot fits onto the Bugaboo Bee 3 using unique bassinet adaptors. The Bugaboo Bee³ can fold with the reversible seat on forward or reverse facing. The Bugaboo Bee³ has an extendable seat with a no thread harness which moves with your child as they grow. The basket is slightly larger than the Bee Plus. The Bugaboo Bee³ chassis is more sturdy with less give, which gives a better push. The wheels have been redesigned too. The Bugaboo Bee³ can also take a car seat as a travel system. There are new colour options and a different more stretchy extending canopy.
