The swoon-worthy Fox 5 is a multi-faceted grow-with-me baby stroller. It comes with a pram as well as a toddler seat — both of which easily attach to (and detach from) the stroller frame. Additionally, parents can connect both in parent-facing or world-facing positions.

PRAM MODE: The pram can be used for the first 6 months of your baby’s life (or until they can sit up unassisted). This gives them a flat surface that’s comfortable for napping while being chauffeured around town (what a life!). The pram has a breezy panel that can be folded up for more airflow and a mattress with aerated 3D comfort mesh to keep baby’s body temperature regulated via ventilation.

TODDLER SEAT MODE: The toddler seat is the next step up as your child grows. With one-hand reclining capability, the seat has multiple positions for a comfortable ride every time. It’s ergonomically padded to support their development, and comes with a new adjustable footrest to give growing kids a couple of extra inches to stretch out!

CAR SEAT MODE: The Fox 5 can be turned into a travel system by attaching your child’s car seat to the frame. It’s compatible with Bugaboo’s infant car seats as well as seats from Cybex, Nuna, Maxi-Cosi, and Clek.

The Freewheelin' Fox

Bugaboo makes operating the Fox 5 a total dream wherever you’re going! If you are looking for a stroller that can perform on all terrain, you won’t be disappointed.

SMOOTH AS BUTTER: A refined chassis design ensures the stroller moves with ease at all times. The central joint has been moved closer to the rear, making for lighter steering and giving parents extra room when pushing the stroller.

WONDER WHEELS: Designed with 8.5” wheels in the front and 12” in the back, the Fox 5’s wheels are durable and spoke-designed for a premium look and feel. The front swivel wheels can also be locked for added safety and stability on rough terrain or when jogging with the stroller.

HANDLE WITH CARE: Parents will love the handlebar, which is wrapped in high-end stitched leather. The handlebar also now features one-handed adjustability for perfect positioning during operation — no matter your height!

Baby-Orientated Design

Babies enjoy their time in the Fox 5 thanks to a number of design features that cater specifically to them:

HELPFUL HARNESS: Children stay safe and secure in the toddler seat via its harness, which comes with a 5-point buckle system for getting them in and out of the stroller easily. Dense padding is also included on the harness straps so your child stays comfortable at all times.

HIGH-UP SEATING: The seating position for the bassinet and toddler seat is quite high — this keeps babies closer to their caretakers and also makes it easier for parents to reach their little ones.

BENEFICIAL BUMPER: A bumper bar is included on the toddler seat to give children something to hold on to (it also protects them if you accidentally bump into something!).

COMPLETE CANOPY: Sunny days are great for exploring the great outdoors, but we can all agree that sunburns are no fun! Thankfully, you can protect your baby’s fair skin by deploying the extendable UPF 50+ canopy. This baby is a biggie! Your little one will be nice and shaded even on the brightest days. To accommodate growing toddlers, the hood also slides up (with one hand) to make greater length in the seat.

The Unboxing

Convenience for Parents

Not overlooking parental needs, Bugaboo includes features that will delight operators as well!

HERE, THERE, AND EVERYWHERE: The Fox 5 collapses in a one-fold (with the seat or carry cot) or two-fold configuration, making it easy to store out of sight or load into your vehicle when taking it with you for the day. The stroller has an automatic, self-standing position. 

COLOUR US IMPRESSED: Bugaboo gives parents an assortment of fashions to choose from that are trendy and will appeal to any sense of style.

WASH ‘N GO: Not only are the stroller fabrics soft, super durable, and water repellant, but they’re also machine washable for easy cleaning whenever needed!

BIG BASKET: The easy-access under-seat basket with extendable flaps that can hold up to 22 lbs. of daily essentials — perfect for stowing your purse, diaper bag, and anything else you may need when you are out and about.

ONE-HAND ADJUSTMENT: As a busy parent, it may always seem like your hands are full. Keeping this in mind, Bugaboo designed many of the Fox 5’s features to be adjustable with just one hand, including a one-handed fold, handlebar, backrest recline, footrest adjustment, and canopy length adjustment.

Accessory to Fun

The Fox 5 comes with a rain cover to keep baby warm and dry in inclement weather. The stroller is also compatible with the Comfort Wheeled Board to accommodate a second child. Perfect for toddlers looking to catch a ride, the connection of this accessory has been moved in by 2.5 cm to allow parents more foot room while walking.

In addition, the Fox 5 is compatible with most existing Bugaboo accessories. Here’s a quick list of all the possible add-ons:

Fox-y Stroller

The Fox 5 by Bugaboo is a top-of-the-line option for parents looking for a versatile, high-end stroller. With its sleek design, advanced features, and easy operation, it makes life with your little one a breeze.

Whether you're navigating city streets or heading out for a hike, the Fox 5 can handle everything you throw at it — and the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’ve picked the right stroller to keep your child safe, comfortable, and happy.
