It’s Ride of the Week time! This week we will explore the Bugaboo Dragonfly and its features in greater detail!
The Bugaboo Dragonfly is a one of a kind midsize stroller that weighs less than 17.5 pounds! In the world of strollers, the mid-size category strikes a perfect balance between compactness and functionality. The Dragonfly could easily function as a one-and-done stroller - great for everyday, but also easy for in and out of the car and travel!
Being a midsize stroller, the Dragonfly has features not seen on most compact, travel strollers. For example, the seat is reversible, the handlebar is adjustable, and the basket is roomier. The Dragonfly also has an impressive and unique one-handed fold - the bassinet can even fold with the stroller into a slim package!
Let’s take a look at its many features starting from the top down:
- Leatherette handlebar with folding mechanism on it plus ability to adjust the height of handlebar
- Extra-large 3-panel sun canopy offers exceptional protection from the sun and wind and includes a large, breezy discovery window
- Easily recline with one hand to an almost fully flat one-hand recline (143°)
- Machine washable seat with extra padded cushioning for ultimate comfort
- Extra tall and spacious seat perfect for taller children
- Seat sits 50cm from the ground - ideal for easy interactions with your child
- Quick-click harness is easy to buckle, quick one button release - can buckle the shoulder and waist buckles or just one or the other
- The straps are easily height adjustable, featuring Bugaboo’s signature no-thread harness system
- Integrated leg rest that’s easy to adjust for optimal comfort; easy to wipe clean
- Extra large storage basket that’s easily accessible from both front and back
- Easy to use, central brake
- All-wheel suspension
The Bugaboo Dragonfly has some unique, lesser known features and tricks too!
- The Dragonfly bassinet (sold separately) can fold with the stroller!
- When folding the Dragonfly, use a little momentum to bring the front of the stroller towards you and the seat will fold down automatically.
- The Dragonfly has one of the highest backrest of any midsize stroller, measuring 23” making it super comfortable for larger toddlers or older children and allowing their head to be supported longer!
- The Dragonfly reduces CO2 impact by up to 21%, promoting a cleaner future. Fabrics are eco-friendly, and PFAS-free for your baby's safety.
- ALL the fabric is removable and machine-washable!
- The basket is rated for 22 pounds and it can be easily accessed from the front and back!
- The fabrics are water repellent, durable, and soft to the touch.
- The Dragonfly has a rider board available for an older sibling that has a little comfortable seat on it as well! You can clip it up when not in use too!
- The Dragonfly does have a bumper bar that is perfect for hanging your baby’s favorite toy on it or having something for your baby to hold onto. Note that while Bugaboo does not sell a snack tray specifically for the Dragonfly, we’ve found some that will work by attaching to the bumper bar!
The Bugaboo Dragonfly fulfills the needs of parents that want one stroller that can do it all - compact and lightweight, but with bigger wheels to handle life’s adventures. A midsize stroller like the Dragonfly is easy to travel with and easy for everyday. It offers more features and comfort than an ultra compact travel stroller, but saves space (and your back!) in your car and home!
