First Impressions

Unpacking the Bugaboo Fox 2 Travel System was an easy experience from start to finish. Inside the box, I found a range of items, including the pram frame, a carrycot, a seat unit, and various accessories.
Assembling the pushchair was surprisingly straightforward, even for someone like me who isn't particularly handy with DIY tasks. What immediately struck me was the spaciousness of the seat. It's clear that Bugaboo designed this pram with growing babies in mind. Elle had plenty of room to move, so I could easily see this accommodating her even when she is a toddler.

Comfort and Ease of Use

The carrycot proved to be comforting for my little one during our outings. The soft mattress and cocoon-like design provided a safe and snug environment for naps. Transitioning to the seat unit was a breeze, and the well-padded seat offered excellent comfort. It features multiple recline positions, allowing my baby to sit up and take in the views or take a nap with ease. 

Pushing and steering the Bugaboo Fox 2 was a dream. It effortlessly glided over various terrains, from smooth pavements to bumpy trails, making it suitable for my hikes and runs. I tested this pram with a day trip to Penshaw monument, and it coped with the uneven ground very well, and it was much easier to push up the hill than I expected.

Cleaning was very easy, thanks to the removable, washable fabrics. A quick wipe-down or machine wash had it looking pristine again. This was particularly handy on our day trip to the beach, where I (accidentally) spilt some ice cream on the top of the pram, and after a quick clean, it still looks brand new!

Travel and Portability

Folding the Bugaboo Fox 2 was a straightforward process. It compactly folded, and I appreciated the fact that it easily fit into my car boot, leaving space for other essentials. 

However, I should note that while it's convenient to fold, it still takes up a significant portion of the boot space. I have a large car, and I wouldn’t recommend this for anyone without a big car. The pram remains bulky once folded and will take up a lot of space.

The basket beneath the pram was surprisingly roomy, accommodating a substantial amount of baby essentials, making it practical for longer outings.

Safety Features

The chassis of the Bugaboo Fox 2 felt incredibly sturdy, and I had no doubts about its durability. Even during our more challenging hike, it handled uneven terrain with ease. 

The brakes were user-friendly, engaging and disengaging with a simple push of a button. I felt confident that the pram would remain securely in place when stationary. This was incredibly handy when tackling the hill up the Quayside, if anyone is from Newcastle… you know the one, as when pushing a pram, sometimes I need a quick pitstop halfway up to collect myself - and I was confident that this pram would stay put even on a hill that seems never-ending and almost vertical.

Value for Money

While the Bugaboo Fox 2 Travel System comes with a premium price tag, it genuinely delivers on its promises. The blend of style, comfort, and adaptability for various terrains makes it a worthwhile investment for active parents like me who value both functionality and aesthetics. 

It's a splurge, but one that I believe is well worth it, given its longevity and performance.

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, the Bugaboo Fox 2 Travel System has exceeded my expectations. It's a pram that combines style, comfort, and practicality seamlessly. 

Whether you're strolling in the city or hiking in the countryside, it ticks every box. While the initial cost may be higher than some alternatives, the quality, durability, and versatility of this pram make it a wise investment for parents who seek a reliable and stylish companion for their parenting journey. 

I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a top-tier travel system that you can rely on.
