Are you looking for the best of the best in baby strollers? Want to make all the other parents jealous because your kid is rocking the stroller equivalent of a Louis Vuitton handbag?

Look no further than the Fox 3 Complete Stroller from Bugaboo!

Premium in both look and feel, the Fox 3 is a stylishly chic stroller that comes in a variety of fabric colours and frame options to satisfy any parent’s fashion sense.

We should also mention it grows with your child, can go on any kind of terrain, and pretty much works like a dream.

Let us explain…

Why We Love the Fox 3

The Specs:
  • Suitable for children up to 50 lbs.
  • Dimensions: 33 - 42" L x 24" W x 35 - 43" H 
  • One-piece fold: 18.5" L x 36.4" W x 23.6" H 
  • Two-piece fold: 33.8" L x 20.4" W x 13.4" H 
  • Stroller Weight: 21.8 lbs. 
  • Front Wheel Size: 8.5" 
  • Rear Wheel Size: 12" 

There are many reasons for parents to love the Fox 3 Stroller, but our favourite has to be that it’s designed to grow with your child.

The stroller comes with two seats — the pram and the toddler seat — but can also be used with a car seat as well. All seats can also be positioned facing parents or facing outward. Of note, you can only use one seat at a time.
  • PRAM: The pram can be used for babies up until around six months of age. It allows your little one to lay flat and get the endless amount of snoozing they require. One of the best features of the Fox 3 is the mesh ventilation on the pram, which increases airflow and keeps baby nice and cool. 
  • TODDLER SEAT: Once infants reach the six-month mark (or can sit up unaided), they can graduate to the ergonomic toddler seat. This seat has three positions (180° flat, reclined, and upright) and comes with an adjustable footrest for proper leg support at all stages of development. 
  • CAR SEAT (optional): You can attach an infant car seat to the Fox 3’s frame if you wish to make it a travel system. It’s compatible with seats from Cybex, Peg Perego, Nuna, Maxi-Cosi, and Clek with adapters (sold separately).

Outdoor Coverage

We all know weather can be unforgiving at times!

As a premium all-terrain stroller, Bugaboo designed the Fox 3 to withstand extensive outdoor use in pretty much any environment:
  • Frame & Wheels: For such a solid frame, the stroller is remarkably light for any parent to push. A telescoping handlebar adds comfort and feels great in the hand when maneuvering. Extra-large puncture-free tires are mounted on a full suspension system to tackle the toughest of surfaces. Bugaboo wheels have a famous central joint, which is essentially shockproofing the stroller for effortless gliding. Additionally, the front swivel wheels can be locked in place for stability when used on rocky surfaces. 
  • Seat Harness: The 5-point seat harness has dense padding with a “quick click” release button for easy unbuckling.
  • Large Canopy: The included canopy is HUGE, providing children with adjustable protection from the sun. It comes with Bugaboo’s signature mesh peekaboo window to increase airflow while allowing parents to keep an eye on their child. Another nice feature is that the canopy connects to both the pram and toddler seats! 
  • Fabrics: Bugaboo is known for using superior fabrics and the Fox 3 gives you a number of stylish colour options to choose from. They’re also fully padded and water-resistant for superior comfort, with high-quality stitching for longevity. 
  • Rain Cover: A translucent vinyl rain cover keeps your little one from getting soaked in a downpour and can also be used to protect them in snowy or windy conditions.

In the Fold

You’ll never have to worry about stroller size hindering your plans for a fun day out!

The Fox 3 can collapse a few different ways to fit the stroller into your vehicle — with the pram or toddler seat attached, without the seats, and with or without the wheels.

Leaving the seats on is best for quickly stowing the stroller in your trunk or out of the way until you need to use it again, whereas fully removing the seats saves a bit more space.

The removal of the wheels is a nice feature if you have minimal storage space or small doorways you need to fit the stroller through. Additionally, the pram can collapse flat, to take up even less space if required.

Accessorize Your Ride

The Fox 3 includes some clever accessories to add a touch of convenience for busy parents on the go:

Basket: A large storage basket under the seat holds up to 22 lbs, so you can bring along all your must-have items like your diaper bag, purse, and your little one’s comfort stuffies and toys.

Wrist Strap: Use the wrist strap to keep the stroller secured to you at all times. This is especially important on downhill slopes, as you don’t want your precious bundle taking off!

Parents can also add a few extras to take their Fox 3 to the next level.

Holders: The cup holder ensures your water bottle is never out of reach, while a smartphone holder keeps you connected to the rest of the world. Both of these items mount to the stroller’s handlebar, with the phone holder having a 360° ball joint for perfect placement and the cup holder being the right size to hold your coffee.

Snack Tray: Babies need their sustenance! The snack tray mounts to the stroller frame and positions food in front of baby, so they can easily grab their bottle or munchies. This is the perfect place to store those goldfish (before they inevitably end up crunched up into the cracks of their car seat).

On the Road Again

The Fox 3 Complete Stroller may cost a pretty penny, but given the premium-quality of the product, it’s not unreasonable. With comfortable and stylish fabrics, a grow-with-me attitude through its multiple configurations, and a smooth-as-butter effortless push, this stroller is a genuine treat to operate. If that weren’t enough, the durability and agility of the stroller are truly impressive as is its lightweight feel — at just 21.8 pounds this stroller is one of the lightest full-sized strollers out there.

If you’re looking for a high-end stroller with premium construction and a sleek look, be sure to add the Fox 3 to your shortlist!
Happy shopping!
