About the Bugaboo Cameleon 3 Sahara Special Edition
You might think of the camel as an awkward animal, but those who live with camels day in, day out, immediately appreciate their terrific endurance, their usefulness, and even their beauty*. Writer Barnaby Rogerson described a trip on the Sahara via camel as follows: “There is a sureness of way, a gentle dignity and steadiness of purpose about a camel. The Arab description of camels as ‘ships of the desert’ conjures up just the right image.”
The camel-colored Sahara Special Edition Bugaboo Cameleon 3 stroller combines the merits of the camel and the Cameleon: beige and woody tones on rugged fabrics harmonize with faux-leather details, atop the latest, toughest, and most adaptable version of Bugaboo’s flagship multi-terrain single stroller.
The special edition Bugaboo Sahara fabrics for the Cameleon 3 include:
2-tone yarn-dyed 600/2D canvas: This tough but lovely fabric adorns the outside base fabric on the Bugaboo Cameleon 3 stroller bassinet, seat, and under seat bag, as well as the outside tailored fabric.
Grey quilted jersey: Soft and snuggly quilting covers the inner lining of the stroller sun canopy, apron, and bassinet mattress cover.
Embroidery and faux leather: The Bugaboo logo is embroidered in same-color stitching on a vintage leather-look label; the handlebar and rotating carry handle are covered in faux-leather with embroidery stitching on the inside.
Bonus wool blanket: The Sahara special edition Bugaboo Cameleon 3 stroller includes a bonus grey-tone wool blanket measuring 31.5” x 47”, and made with 80% wool, 20% polyamide, with a Bugaboo label.
Of course, the elegant Sahara special edition Bugaboo Cameleon 3 stroller boasts more than just looks: the third generation of this famous and well-loved modular stroller is easier to use than ever. The Sahara’s merits include:
Re-framing the picture: The Bugaboo Cameleon 3 Stroller’s gleaming aluminum chassis is now easier to use than ever. Check out the impressive new unfold here, at our friend Jamie Grayson’s blog. Just pull up the folder and watch everything fall into place!
Ultra all-terrain: Like the camel, the Cameleon 3 stroller is made to go everywhere, and relishes a challenge. Your baby gets a fantastically smooth ride on city and suburban sidewalks, with fantastic maneuverability in turns and tight spots, but the Bugaboo Cameleon 3 Stroller really shines when the going gets tough. For bumpy roads and trails, reverse the stroller handlebar to put the big rear wheels in front, and for snow or sand (in, say, the Sahara), you can click into two-wheel position.
Ultra-adaptable: The Bugaboo Cameleon 3 Stroller boasts a versatile modular design that lets you click the seat on and off to face you or face the world, and has three recline positions in either direction. Got a newborn? The Cameleon 3 stroller includes a pram-like bassinet, or you can add an infant car seat adapter (sold separately) to make a travel system. The stroller seat can carry kids up to 37.5 pounds (about preschool age), and an included rain cover protects your baby from the elements.
Compact fold: Unlike a camel, the Cameleon stroller is easy to fold and fits easily in your car trunk. Removing the seat from the stroller chassis helps to divide both weight and bulk to save room, too.
As with the other adaptable and convenient strollers from Bugaboo, the Bugaboo Limited Edition Sahara Cameleon 3 stroller makes it easy for you to spot the interactive functions by flagging them with white buttons. Use them to adjust the stroller handlebar height, reverse the handlebar, recline your stroller seat, reverse your stroller seat, and more.
Unless you’re frequent beachgoers, your Sahara Special Edition Bugaboo Cameleon 3 is unlikely to see much sand. But, like the camel, this stroller boasts its own special beauty, and the more you use this “ship of the city,” the more you’ll love it.
