Bee 5.

Product: Bee 5

Price: £150+

Weight: 8.9kg.

The Place to Buy: ebay

Delivery: Worldwide.

My Ranking: 8.5/10.

After viewing all of these features this stroller is truly amazing and it’s only a single stroller. The Bugaboo brand has always surprised us with their quality products.

Although the stroller is not suitable from birth it is compatible with a carrycot and car seat. It’s not only compatible with Bugaboo car seats.

Buy the necessary adapters to match it up with car seats from Maxi-Cosi, Britax, etc. Your options are not limited. Which is good and if you are familiar with these brands then you will know they offer top products.

Now, let’s quit the babbling and begin, shall we?

Suitable from birth the Bee 5 it’s just 8.9kg offering a light and easy manure. A lightweight frame to make things easier. Made from aluminium one of the best materials out there.

It makes the stroller last for years and keeps it clean and new. The seat unit can be attached and detach when you are ready to have your Travel System.

The seat offers adjustment for your baby and toddler. Is your toddler tall? Do you want them closer to you or you want more space for them?

Adjust it to suit their age and needs. With the reclining positions, it’s also easy to recline it  into a position that’s easier for your baby or toddler.

Reclining it to give your baby sleeping, sitting and playtime area. If you want to keep things cosier and relaxing how about the footrest?

Let them rest their feet and legs. It can be super useful if your toddler is tall. They won’t be able to sleep well if their legs and feet are not adjusted.

Is There Anything Else?


A backrest is also included in with the features. They can rest their backs while on a long journey. It’s not easy for them to seat for long periods.

The seat is forward and rear-facing. What do you prefer? Whatever it is you have the option to choose which is good. Sometimes you will want them facing you and other times not.

Keep it safe with the 5-point harness system. Strap them and fasten their shoulders, legs and hips. It will keep the body and head steady.

Extra needed for babies. Whatever season you are using the stroller a canopy can be a lot of help. The extended canopy with a  sun cover and a UPF 50+ protection.

The sun, rain and other elements can make it difficult for our babies to go out, but you can make it easy with a canopy.  Fold it using one hand.

This Bugaboo Bee Stroller can be folded with or without the seat. If you are using it with a carrycot or car seat you don’t need to worry about it not being able to fold.

Fold the frame and hold on the car seat in public transportation. You will need the space.

Any Additional Benefits?

Yes, there are other benefits to this stroller. Wheels that offer a smooth ride and will work on many grounds. To have with you on holidays and travelling to the city.

If you live in narrowed streets then no need to worry about the stroller. You can change positions and swing it at ease. Easily accessible brakes.

Washable fabrics. Not all strollers come with this benefit. Wash the fabrics to keep them clean and fresh. It will also help the stroller last longer.

Depending on where you live and your baby you will need to constantly wash the fabrics. Water-resistance can help against the rain and snow.

If you forgot to bring a rain cover with you then don’t worry, the fabrics won’t get the damaged. A shopping basket underneath to place many things.

It’s easily reachable both at front and back. If you are at the front you don’t need to go all the way behind to take out things. A rain cover is included with the package.

No need to worry about that one. Buy your car seat and nappy changing bag and you are good to go.

If you want to match it up with another additional accessory view a Bugaboo Stroller board review I did here.



  • Although this is not a con for the strollers itself, it’s a single stroller and doesn’t come with the necessary accessories.  You have to buy them separately.
  • Bee 5 is not the latest model. The Bee 6 is.
  • Can’t be converted to a double stroller like other Bugaboo strollers.
  • It’s expensive.

A Single And Quality Stroller.

A Single and simple stroller that offers quality fabrics and features. The colours match with many things and it’s also suitable for your daily life.

Do you agree to it being suitable for many lifestyles? Or am I rambling nonsense? What stuck out most for you? You have probably have heard of this stroller. Through who and do you know anyone who has it.

Many parents want to keep it simple and yet have quality thinks to make life easy. Are you for that lifestyle?

Keep the stroller for many years by washing the fabrics and cover it and always keep it compact so the materials can even last longer.
