The Bugaboo Buffalo appears to combine the looks of the popular Bugaboo Cameleon 3 with the storage capacity of the Bugaboo Donkey, as well as some brand new features.
Which? pushchairs expert Victoria Pearson says: ‘Bugaboo seems to be responding to how people actually use their pushchairs – allowing parents to hang shopping safely from the handlebars is a step forward.
‘We look forward to testing out how much you can really hang from the handlebar without tipping the pushchair and how much will fit in the under-seat shopping basket – something we investigate with all the pushchairs we test’.

Bugaboo Buffalo pushchair storage
The Bugaboo Buffalo is designed for heavy loads – the large seat can carry kids up to 23kg, so it can be used for taller and heavier children.
Bugaboo claims that it will also be the world’s first pushchair to have official safety certification that allows up to 6kg to be hung from the dedicated bag hooks on its handlebars.
The shopping basket under the seat will take up to 10kg too – most pushchairs are limited to between 2kg and 5kg of shopping and nappy bags.
The Bugaboo Buffalo designed to go off road
As its rugged-sounding name suggests, the Bugaboo Buffalo travel system has been designed with a sturdy chassis and big wheels for use on rough ground.
It includes an extra large sun canopy to protect your baby from the weather.
A major step forward is that you’ll be able to fold the Buffalo with the seat on, something which parents tend to find a real plus.
Bugaboo Buffalo – designer pushchair price
It will come as no surprise to Bugaboo aficionados that the Buffalo won’t be a budget option. It’s priced at £859 which is slightly more than the Cameleon and slightly less than the Donkey.
Europe will be getting the Buffalo in March this year but UK customers are going to have to wait a bit longer to get their hands on one. There’s no official release date yet but Bugaboo is aiming for a late summer/early autumn launch.
We hope to get one into our offices as soon as we can to give you our first impressions.
