The Bugaboo Dragonfly Pushchair is the perfect in-between stroller – not too big and like the Fox or Donkey, but not as compact as the Butterfly. It's that just-right size, equipped with robust, larger wheels that effortlessly tackle challenging terrains. The best part is it includes a bassinet, making it usable from day one with your newborn!

This stroller is tailor-made for bustling urban families who prefer strolling over driving, yet it's compact enough not to go unnoticed by those seeking a lightweight option. While it's not feather-light as a bassinet stroller, with just the seat, it comes in at 9kg. Overall, the Bugaboo Dragonfly is a fantastic upgrade from Bugaboo's already fantastic line-up of luxury strollers.

I was so happy when the Bugaboo Dragonfly finally arrived on our doorstep, and when it did, I was relieved to find the only thing I had to do was attach the canopy and handlebar, and thanks to the user-friendly YouTube instructions, we were out for a stroll within minutes. The seat is spacious and the padded straps ensured my daughter's comfort throughout our outings. What sets the Dragonfly apart is the clever addition of side panels on the seat, which provided an extra layer of security, saving us from the constant struggle of losing toys.

One of my favourite features has to be the ample storage space. When we venture out for the day, I can pack as much as I need, knowing it'll easily fit in the generous under basket. This makes getting items in and out a fuss-free experience.

No matter what the weather has in store, the Dragonfly's canopy is a champion. It offers great coverage, ensuring that the sun never gets in my daughter's eyes. And if it is extra sunny, there's a handy clip included in the package for attaching a parasol.

The Dragonfly proved to be an excellent companion for both city and park adventures. It glided effortlessly along pavements, making it the ideal urban stroller. We even put it through its paces at our local park, tackling bumpy terrain without any issues. When we returned home, the small wheels wiped down super quickly, and the stroller folded down into a compact package.

The added strap when folded made it easy to carry, especially when my hands were already full. And let's not forget the practical canvas material used for the seat – a real lifesaver when kids are involved.

The only minor setback I encountered was that the stroller felt a tad stiff when folding and adjusting the handle. However, I'm optimistic that with a bit of wear, this stiffness will ease over time, just like any good, reliable product.
