Bugaboo unveiled their newest stroller to the media today. Our first reaction is that the company must be extremely confident in their product to name it Donkey which doesn't have quite the same ring as Cameleon, Frog or Bee. The Donkey's target consumers are parents of twins, two young children, or who desire more storage space. Read on for more details&hellipThe Donkey uses telescoping technology to expand from a mono stroller to a duo stroller or to add a storage sidecar for groceries and other cargo. In the mono position the Donkey's width is the same as the Cameleon (23"). As a duo stroller, it is 29" which the company says makes it the narrowest luxury side-by-side stroller. We're not sure what Bugaboo considers a "luxury" duo stroller but we checked the widths of a few other side-by-side double strollers and they were all pretty close to 29" (the Maclaren Twin Techno is 29.5" and the Bumbleride Indie Twin is also 29", for example).
No word yet on price but we expect it to be high. The Donkey will be available in the U.S. in Spring 2011.
What do you think from this first glimpse? We'd be particularly interested in hearing from parents of twins or two young children.
