Bugaboo Fox 5

Arriving at Natural Baby Shower earlier this year, the Bugaboo Fox 5 Pushchair was the all-new, updated version of the ultimate travel companion for your little one.

With an adjustable suspension for a smooth ride, this stroller has everything you need for a comfortable journey. Featuring excellent manoeuvrability and maximum space to keep everything close while you explore different terrains effortlessly.

Plus, it's designed with a super cosy seat and SPF 50+ canopy hood for optimal comfort and sun protection. Suitable from newborn with the carrycot and around six months old, or when they can sit unaided with the seat unit, the Bugaboo Fox 5 is a good size for your growing little one up until 4 years old (22kg).

Maximising on convenience, the Fox 5 also features a one-handed folding system and transport hooks for easy transportation!

The Bugaboo Fox 5 is by far one of the best pushchairs I have had the pleasure of using! From the way it's packaged on arrival to the easy assembly and smooth motion when pushing, the Bugaboo Fox 5 is the perfect pram for any parent!

The assembly was quick and easy- only taking 15 minutes from when I opened the box to the final product which you can see pictured. The product arrived all in one box with easy assembly instructions.

Fast and effortless delivery from Natural Baby Shower made everything even easier and the customer is second to none.

It's a lighter weight compared to the previous Bugaboo, the Fox 3, which we own and it is far easier to push; the handle is a better thickness than previous models and this in turn makes it much comfier to push. 

The best feature of the stroller is the ease in which it can be folded down when placed in the car. It's a one hand fold with 2 buttons which makes it so easy when out by yourself with the little one!

After a few weeks I changed from the bassinet to the seat and the process of changing over was so easy. The bassinet came off effortlessly and the assemble of the seat was so easy with the amazing instructions which show by picture how it's done.

The fabric which has been used feels a lot better than previous models and is an easy fabric to wash any sick or food off of with a wipe. 

The only negative my partner and I could find is that the frame doesn't lock up when folded down like it did on the previous model which does mean there is the chance of the wheels opening whilst in the boot of the car.

In our opinion if anyone is on the fence on wether to purchase the Bugaboo Fox 5 then go for it as we love it compared with our Fox 3 - we would give the Fox 5 a five star rating as it is excellent!
