UPDATE 9/30/2011: We now have the Bugaboo Donkey in stock and available for purchase online or by phone. Check out the Bugaboo Donkey Stroller on mbeans.com.
We have just received new information about pricing, configurations and availability for the Bugaboo Donkey stroller. The launch date is tentatively set for Spring 2011, and we are thrilled that Magic Beans will be among a very select group of retailers to introduce the Bugaboo Donkey. The launch will happen in stores only. The Donkey will not be available initially for sale online anywhere, though we are happy to help you in person or over the phone. In the beginning, demand will almost certainly outpace the supply, but we will be receiving new inventory each month throughout the rest of 2011.
And now, drumroll please.
The Bugaboo Donkey Stroller will be available in three configurations – Mono, Duo and Twin. At first, understanding the components may be a little confusing, but it does all make sense.
Mono – $1199
This configuration is for one child, and includes the base stroller, the side luggage basket and a bassinet that converts into a stroller seat. Because the bassinet and stroller seat use the same frame, you would need to purchase additional parts to use this with an additional child.
Components: Stroller Base, Tailored Fabric Set
Duo – $1499
This configuration is for two children who are different ages. With the Duo configuration, you can use the stroller with either a bassinet and a stroller seat or two stroller seats.
Components: Stroller Base, Tailored Fabric Set, Duo Extension Set, Sun Canopy
Twin – $1659
This configuration is for twins or two newborn babies. With the Twin, you can use the stroller with two bassinets, a bassinet and a stroller seat, or two stroller seats.
Components: Stroller Base, 2 Tailored Fabric Sets, Duo Extension Set, Bassinet Base Complete
What’s in the components?
Stroller Base – chassis, 1 seat frame, 1 set of canopy wires, side luggage basket, underseat basket, bassinet fabric, seat fabric and rain cover
Tailored Fabric Set - sun canopy fabric, bassinet apron
Duo Extension Set – 1 seat frame, 1 set of canopy wires, seat fabric and rain cover

There is not yet information about price or availability for car seat adapters, but according to the information I’ve received, they are planning to make them available for Maxi-Cosi, Graco, Britax and Chicco models. Those will not all be available at launch. As soon as I know more, I will post an update.
