See if the Bugaboo Bee's substance matches its style

When it launched, the Bugaboo Bee was the pushchair of choice for city-dwellers. It can be used from birth and, if you look hard enough, it's available in an eye-catching range of fashionable colours. You'll find its successor, the Bee3, in the shops now, but see if you should be on the lookout for a second-hand Bugaboo Bee by reading what our experts thought of the pushchair.

We're currently putting the shiny new Bugaboo Bee3 through our extensive lab tests and the full results will be revealed before the end of 2014.

But considering the new travel system could cost more than £700, you may want to know the buzz around the original Bee. It may be stylish, but is it comfortable and easy to use enough to be a Best Buy?

The only way to find out whether you should bag a second-hand bargain or pay more for a brand new buggy is by logging in to see the overall test scores for both. Not yet a member? A one month Which? trial costs only £1 and gives you access to this and all of our pushchair reviews.
