In true Bugaboo form, the Donkey is sleek and sturdy. Though easy to maneuver, it is cumbersome on steps, though most double strollers tend to be so.
More importantly, it's costly. When Bugaboo first entered the stroller market, it set the standard for luxury stroller prices. The Donkey will be no different. For the Mono configuration (the base and one seat set) it will run $1200, the Duo (the base, one seat set and one extension set) $1500, and the Twin (the base, two seat sets and one extension set) $1660. And for families that start with the Mono and then have another child, an extension kit can be purchased for $300.
Is it worth the price? It really is one of the most innovative strollers I have ever seen. The fact that Bugaboo hasn't lost any of its signature characteristics will make it a must have on many mama-to-be's registries. My best advice – ask your friends (a lot of them!) to get together and buy it for you. You'll certainly use it more than many other items on your list!
