Being a happy user of the Bugaboo Cameleon I did want something that was extra compact and lightweight for the car to use in conjunction with y cameoen. As a new mum of 4 now, space in the car is limited as we need to use 6 seats in our seven seater.
When the Bugaboo Bee arrived (In khaki) I was pleasently surprised at how compact it is and the fact it has so many features crammed into such a compact pushchair I was serioulsy impressed.
It does take a bit of getting used to to fully unfold but once you have done it a couple fo times it is extremely simple. The fold is very easy just pull up the two catches and push down and it folds itself and stays folded. so handy for the bus and car and can be done one handed once you have done it once or twice. It is compact folded here is a picture folded in rear facing mode..
To remove the seat from rear to forward facing again not diifficult once you have done it a couple of times but you will probably find you prefer it facing one way or the other. It folds in both rear and outer facing mode too which is handy so if you want it rear faciong it can be kept that way round for as long as you want.
It turns on a sixpence, lovely spaciouls easy to access shopping basket. Height adjustable handle which is simple to extend, extendable seat so handy when your baby grows and needs the extra space. I would say with the footmuff it is suitable from birth without the nest but if you want the added padded luxury for your baby then get the nest. The seat is fine for a toddler but it does seem quite basic so i would use it with a liner or footmuff so your little one is comfy. Here is a picture of it with the footmuff in laying flat rear facing
It has 4 fab seat positions from flat to sat upright in both modes so there will always be a comfy position for your little one.
I have sat my 3.5 year old in it for size and she had room in it although the hood did skim her head so I would say you can use it birth to 3 years but if you wanted any longer use out of it then the hood would be in the way.
I have the car seat adapters (extra) and haven't used them as of yet but can form a travel system with the maxi cosi cabrio which could be handy just for the school run or quick trip to the shops.
All in all a fab, compact, lightweight, travel system compatible, rear facing one fold peice pushchair. Most mums perfect pram with the backing of an excellent 2 year warranty by one of the best quality pram makers around. you really can't go wrong with this pushchair. I love it!
