Bugaboo Bee Black

Bugaboo has given one of its most popular buggies, the Bugaboo Bee, a seasonal new look in time for winter.

The Bugaboo Bee is now available as part of the buggy brand's monotone 'All Black' collection, and features a matte black chassis and black fabric covers. The Bugaboo Cameleon – another travel system model that can be used with a car seat - has also been given the monotone treatment.

The special edition Bugaboo Bee All Black costs £539, while the Bugaboo Cameleon All Black costs £839. Both are already available in various mix and match colours, including red, blue, yellow and a special edition denim.

Which? baby product expert Victoria Pearson says: 'Bugaboo buggies have always stood out for their strong, vibrant colours at a time when many other pushchair brands stuck to more practical - but somewhat boring - black fabric. 

'Special edition buggies tend to cost more than standard versions, so it will be interesting to see whether the black frames will tempt Bugaboo's colour-loving customers back to black. The Bugaboo Bee is a popular pushchair choice among city-dwelling parents. 

We've tested both the Bugaboo Bee and Cameleon  in our lab and found quite a big difference between them for how easy they are to use.'

The All Black collection will go on sale in John Lewis and selected independent nursery shops.
