Bugaboo Donkey Twin Review – The Best Twin Pram
When we first started trying for baby number two, the plan was just to reuse all the stuff from when Lucas was a baby – including the pram, which was a Steelcraft Strider Plus. And so when we found out we were expecting twins, we had to start looking for the best twin pram. I wanted a side-by-side pram rather than a type with one seat in front of the other, and also one that could have the seats (once they’re out of the bassinets) facing me. Turns out the latter requirement excludes a lot of twin prams. I turned to my Multiple Birth Club’s Facebook group for advice, as well as other in store and online research, and decided on the Bugaboo Donkey Twin.
Overview and Features
I honestly believe this pram is the Rolls Royce of prams. It’s a very smooth ride, and includes all features you would ever need.
- Seats can face the world, face yourself, or you can even have the two seats face each others
- One piece fold with seats and bassinets
- Mono configuration should you go out with only one kid
- Car seat compatible
- Easy to recline seats
- Height adjustable handlebar
- Multi terrain smooth ride
Pros and Cons
- Includes bassinets and seats – you don’t have to buy the bassinets separate like you do with most prams
- Did I mention the ride is extremely smooth?
- This is a QUALITY and very functional twin pram!
- You can fit through any standard door way with both the bassinet and seat configuration
- It looks great!
- There are heaps of accessories you can add, although you won’t really need many. We opted to get this twin pram with the Bugaboo Breezy Sun Canopy rather than the standard canopy (which actually ended up slightly cheaper) – perfect for the Australia summer weather!
- As much as I love this pram, I find it very expensive. If I could have found another quality pram that fit my requirements, I would have probably opted for the alternative if it was a lot cheaper – however, I see it as an investment and I have found that the resell price on the Bugaboo prams are great too. With my first born, Lucas, he was out of the pram after about a year. With Emma and Lily being my babies number 2 and 3, I figure I would probably want to keep them in the stroller for as long as humanly possible
- You cannot fit through a standard doorway with the car capsule configuration. I have done my research, and it looks like this is the same for any other side-by-side pram that has car capsule compatibility. I can still fit it through most shop doorways and all lifts, just not in to my own home.
Despite the chunk out of my wallet, I am so so happy with this pram and glad that I decided to invest in a quality product. At the moment, I’m actually using the pram with the bassinet after a few of the night feeds too as the babies settle well in there.
I definitely recommend the Bugaboo Donkey Twin as the best twin pram/stroller on the market! Undoubtedly, I will be mentioning the Bugaboo in several of my ‘daily life’ post as the girls get older too.
