Hubby wants a donkey....

One of the biggest and most important purchase a parents expecting twins would be making is the stroller. We would need a double stroller suitable for infants, preferably lightweight, easy to navigate and collapsed. The stroller must also fit our car :p Our decision is also influence by the fact that we have a toddler who would still be needing his own stroller after the baby is born (at least for a good 1-2 years or so)

We've done several stroller "test drives" and have narrowed down some choices but we still have not made up our mind. Hubby is doing his own "research" because technically he is more invested in the choices of strollers as he's the one who would end up pushing it :p

This evening I got this sms from him "stroller Bug.aboo ni menarik jugak". I was a bit confused as I didn't know that Bug.aboo make double strollers, so I asked him further and was told that it is called "Bug.aboo Donkey" (hahaha what a name kan??) but he can't find the retail price

So I did a bit of checking of my own. The Donkey is a custom made double stroller which can accommodate 1(mono),2 (duo- different age children) or 2 (twin- same age children). The twin specs come with its own Stroller Base, 2 Tailored Fabric Sets, Duo Extension Set, and bassinet base. With the Donkey Twin, you can use the stroller with two bassinets, a bassinet and a stroller seat, or two stroller seats. Sounds impressive? It looks impressive too...

It comes in several other colours I think : Navy, light blue, hot pink, white etc. Knowing full well how pricey the Bug.aboo range is, I already expected the price to be exorbitant, but I was blown away when I finally found out the price :$1659 - not bad?? that is the price in US Dollars darling. Conversion to Malaysian Ringgit bring the cost to a cool RM4985.30 (minus delivery + tax) So in the end the stroller would set you back RM5k or much more


Hahaha nak muntah tengok the price, kan. I told Lan NO way darling unless we won the lottery or something and even then I would consider it 5000 times before saying yes :p


Tapi kesian hubby, he had his eyes/heart set on it (at least he did b4 finding out the price) hahaha...In the meantime on with the stroller search (and lets pray for a jackpot so we can buy the Donkey :p)

i pun belum beli stroller.pening kepala nak pilih stroller, mengalahkan nak beli kereta! my husband pun dok survey2 tapi kitaorang belum decide lagi. macam2 jenis, specs and not to mention harga. yang penting, praktikal, senang nak guna, lipat, ringan and price reasonable. i takmau beli stroller bulky tapi kalau later nak travel, nak kena beli yang lightweight pulak. sesetengah tu beriban2, cam wth kan?

Izyan :I dah pening sbb Ryan itself dah ada 2 stroller. One Quinny Buzz: Bulky but very comfortable and sturdy and a lightweight umbrella stroller from Sweet Cherry for travel.Both berbaloi & in great condition but not suitable for the twins, so ni nak beli lg satu, pening-pening *sigh*
