You know we love the idea of the Bugaboo Donkey! Our undercover (unauthorized!) video of the Bugaboo Donkey should have told you that! Well, we have breaking Bugaboo Donkey news! This is what we’ve all been waiting for. The prices! The availability date! The configurations! We have it all! (We got it from our good friends at Magic Beans!)
Let’s get to the specifics!
TENTATIVE LAUNCH DATE:
April 1, 2011.
It’s important to note that initially the Bugaboo Donkey will ONLY be sold in stores. Not online (at least to start with!). That’s right – you will have to pick this bad boy up at a real, brick and mortar store. And only a select retailers will have the privilege of selling it. If you don’t live near one of these special retailers, I’m sure they will be taking phone orders!
The Bugaboo Donkey base colors will be black and sand. You will then have the options of the Tailored Fabric colors of Black, Red, Pink, Royal Blue, Off-White and Sand.
We know, we know. Get to the price, right!! We’ve all been wondering – how much is the Donkey going to set up back? How much are we going to have to convince our husbands that it is a good idea? The short answer is: $1199, $1499 and $1659. Why three prices for one stroller? Well, there will be three configurations to choose from – Mono, Duo and Twin.
MagicBeans.com described these three configurations the best:
Mono – $1199
This configuration is for one child, and includes the base stroller, the side luggage basket and a bassinet that converts into a stroller seat. Because the bassinet and stroller seat use the same frame, you would need to purchase additional parts to use this with an additional child.
Components: Stroller Base, Tailored Fabric Set
Duo – $1499
This configuration is for two children who are different ages. With the Duo configuration, you can use the stroller with either a bassinet and a stroller seat or two stroller seats.
Components: Stroller Base, Tailored Fabric Set, Duo Extension Set, Sun Canopy
Twin – $1659
This configuration is for twins or two newborn babies. With the Twin, you can use the stroller with two bassinets, a bassinet and a stroller seat, or two stroller seats.
Components: Stroller Base, 2 Tailored Fabric Sets, Duo Extension Set, Bassinet Base Complete
What’s in the components?
Stroller Base ($1109) – chassis, 1 seat frame, 1 set of canopy wires, side luggage basket, underseat basket, bassinet fabric, seat fabric and rain cover
