The Bugaboo Frog is a very classic type of stroller that has been a real popular item with celebrities and other people. The one thing you are going to notice about this stroller is the fact that it is called the Frog. This is because it has frog like suspension. This is one stroller that will have a lot of accessories and features and there are a lot of stroller configurations for this one. There are two 6-inch swiveling wheels and two 12-inch non-swiveling wheels.
The seat happens to be reversible and comes with a 3 position tilt. It also will accommodate a bassinet. The one thing that many people have issues with is that you have to remove the seat before you can even fold it or unfold it and it isn’t a simple process either.
- Unfolded dimensions: 42 x 23.7 x 37 inches
- Folded dimensions: 10 x 20 x 35 inches
- Weight: 23 lbs
- Seat: accommodates children up to 44 lbs and reversible
- Safety harness: 5-point safety harness
- Handlebar: Reversible
- Wheels: Great suspension
The wheels are one of the best parts about the Frog Stroller as it helps to make steering quite easy. It is very easy to maneuver. Since the handlebar happens to be reversible, you will certainly find that the large wheels are able to be put in the front of the stroller which is great for pushing on those hard to ride on surfaces, but it could be a bit hard to steer this way. When it comes to maneuverability, it is very similar to the Peg Perego Skate.
The frame is made from some high grade aluminum. The quality is great and will take a bunch of abuse but the folding really sucks on this model.
Even though the seating height is lower and can’t be adjusted, the seat is good quality. All of the fabrics on this model are able to be removed and machine washed. Plus, the seat comes with a 5-point safety harness. The seat is completely reversible so you can either have your child facing your or facing away. There happens to be a bumper bar made of foam and it can get pretty dirty quick and it is hard to clean. The seat is made to hold a child up to 44 pounds, and it comes with a 3 position recline.
The biggest issue that I had with this stroller was the folding. There was little thought actually put into the whole folding process and the designers didn’t even try to use the stroller for any amount of time. The stroller can’t be folded until you remove the seat. Then the frame is folded by pressing buttons that are on the frame. The frame then can be lifted into your trunk and then you can place the seat in the trunk as well. It isn’t fun to do this especially when you are in the rain.
Like I mentioned before, the handle is reversible. It comes in handy when you are changing from being on a paved surface to a rough surface and vice versa. Once you flip that handle, you can have the large wheels in the front and the stroller has an easier time of going over rough surfaces without becoming stuck. It is best to have the small wheels in front on paved surfaces as the stroller a lot more maneuverable that way.
The frog has two large 12-inch wheels that aren’t swiveling and do not have suspension. There are then then the two smaller 6-inch wheels that have suspension and swivel. The suspension is where the name frog comes from. The suspension really works well and gives your child a smooth ride.
The best part about this that I have found is that the brakes are actually operated by a button that is located on the handlebar and it works quite well.
The shopping basket is large and is under the seat but it isn’t easy to access. Although this isn’t the only issue. When the stroller is folded, the one thing that you will hate is that anything in the basket gets pushed out of it. This can be a real issue and annoyance when you’re rushing and you forget to empty the basket.
How does the Bugaboo Frog Stroller rank?
This happens to be a well-constructed stroller and it looks amazing. It comes in plenty of colors and it is quite useful if you are walking a lot and it works great on smooth or rough surfaces. Even though the biggest issue was the folding and unfolding. It is still good for your daily walks.
