When it comes to UPPAbaby and Bugaboo, parents can’t get enough of their sophisticated and sleek looks–and rightfully so. They both produce head-turning strollers that are sidewalk superstars. It’s likely that you’re thinking about the UPPAbaby Vista and Bugaboo Calemeon simultaneously! Let’s compare the two.
Folding and storing your stroller can be a big part of your day. Take a closer look at your lifestyle and how weight and storage might affect you! The Bugaboo Cameleon is lighter than the Vista as single stroller, but the Vista does fold standing up in one piece. The Cameleon folding in two pieces can intimidate people, but in the long run it tends to not be a big issue. Many parents prefer storing two lighter objects over one heavier object. We suggest giving both a test run!
The Cameleon is also 2 inches narrower than the Vista at the wheel base. With the Bugaboo Cameleon, you also have the ability to reverse the handlebar and push its larger wheels in the front. If you’re navigating tougher terrain, this could be a really useful feature.
Both strollers give you a bassinet that is completely safe for baby to sleep in! With the Bugaboo Cameleon, you’ll have to switch the fabrics on the universal frame to turn it into a bassinet. When strolling around with an infant, this likely won’t be an issue as you’ll be using the bassinet out and about as well.
The UPPAbaby Vista is a single-to-double stroller, while the Bugaboo Cameleon is not. A single-to-double stroller can be a real elephant in the room. Do you need to prepare for your second? Many parents expecting their first child, who eventually want a second, often think a single-to-double stroller is absolutely necessary. That’s not always the case! We firmly believe you should buy the stroller that best fits your needs for right now and for this child. You really never know what models will be available for you once you eventually have your second child. Also, consider the potential age gap between your children. Most children are walking on their own around the age of three. You might not even need a double stroller when you have two children! So, let yourself fall in love with the stroller that fits you best today.
