    Thanks, Mottzo, did you find it suitable for a new born?

    Stop, stop, stop. Don't rush off to Jacardi just yet. They only offer orange and blue pushchairs but more importantly, they're selling the Frog which is actually now out of production! The Cameleon is the name of the new top end Bugaboo model and aims to fix all the niggles that people had with the Frog - bigger seat, bigger carrycot, more comfy matress, longer and taller frame, height adjustable, bigger bag et al. I asked in the shop and they very honestly said that they have no intention of selling the new model!

    Jacardi's Frog price is comparable to standard UK prices BUT I've just ordered a Cameleon from a Dutch company who ship to Hong Kong and are already set up to deduct the Dutch equivalent of VAT. What this means is that I've got a Cameleon, which has a RRP of £599 for HK$6,800 including shipping, instead of a Frog from Jacardi for the same price, which has a RRP of £499. In other words, a better stroller for the same money.

    Here is the web address for the company I've ordered from:

    www.babytrader.co.uk

    It sounds like a UK company, but this is in fact their English language web site. You'll also see that they're selling a Bugaboo called a Gecko. These are on sale in the UK for £399 from memory, so £100 less than the Frog and £200 less than the Cameleon. Unfortunately, they're of lighter construction then the Frog so are not as good a pushchair and according to someone I know who has seen one in the flesh and owns a Frog 'very disappointing for a Bugaboo'. Therefore, you'll be buying solely for the name.

    P.S. someone who has replaced their old Frog with a Cameleon says that the seat and sunshade fabric on the Cameleon breathes a lot better so is proving to be better in the Florida heat then their Frog.

    Hi Slee just had a look at the website. How did you decide on the colour?!
