Bugaboo Ant 2020 Updates | ( Ratings | Review )

The Bugaboo Ant made waves in 2019 for being one of the lightest travel strollers on the market, and it looks like this little travel stroller has no plans for slowing down in 2020. Today, Bugaboo announced that the Bugaboo Ant will undergo a variety of structural changes for the 2020 season. And what are these changes, you may ask? Well, you came to the right place! We here at Magic Beans are ready to share the whole story.

The Bugaboo Ant a lightweight, compact stroller that is most famous for being able to fold down and fit in the overhead compartment of an airplane. Because of its featherweight status, the Ant is pretty easy to move around. However, with the 2020 improvements, the Ant will be more portable than ever! Thanks to a new carry strap design, it will be easier and more comfortable to carry the Ant while it is in its folded-up orientation. Jet-setting, here we come!

In addition to the new carry strap design, the Ant will also have a newly-designed footrest, making your child’s travel even more comfortable. This footrest, as far as we can tell, will not change the light weight of the stroller. 

A release date for the Bugaboo Ant has not yet been announced, but there are rumors floating around that it will be released sometime in Spring 2020. In the meantime, you can purchase the original Bugaboo Ant at Magic Beans!

  1. Do you know if the footrest can be added onto the current version of the Ant?

    I would like to know if there is any rumor floating about bugaboo bee next version. It has been out for about 3years now since bee 5 is out. I would like to change a stroller from Fox to Bee 5, but if there is anything new bee coming out in 2020, then I’d rather wait.

    Your reply would be much appreciated.

  3. Hi! Bugaboo didn’t make any announcements about new versions of the Bee at any of the 2019 trade shows, so we don’t anticipate any new updates for 2020 at this time.

  4. Hi! You will be able to add the footrest to the current version of the Ant.

  5. hi!
    will the new version of the ant be suitable for bigger kids?
    i mean like for a three years old too?

  6. That depends on the size of the child: the Bugaboo Ant has a weight capacity of 50 lbs.

  7. Any idea when the foot rest will be available?
