The Bugaboo Donkey 5 Has Arrived

The Bugaboo family just got bigger with the launch of the Bugaboo Donkey 5. The new and improved Bugaboo Donkey features a cleaner and more functional design; more compact fold that reduces space; a redesigned carrycot with added ventilation; new colour ways and more.

It's never been easier to go out with twins. With two children, you'll have twice the joy, but you'll also need to be twice as prepared to face the day. The Bugaboo Donkey 5 Twin has several characteristics that make it the finest pushchair for you and your twins, including as side-by-side seats and simple manoeuvrability.

As with the previous models, the Bugaboo Donkey 5 converts from a single stroller (mono) to a side-by-side double stroller for twins or siblings close in age (duo or twin).

Here's a closer look at the new Bugaboo Donkey 5.

It’s smaller than you think!

With so many configurations, the Donkey 5 is perfect for your growing family and it's smaller than you think! Believe it or not, the Donkey 5 is just as narrow in mono mode as the Bugaboo Fox 3! And, when you switch from mono to duo stroller mode, it’s only 14cm wider so you can still get in and out of every space and doorway easily.

Bugaboo Donkey 3 vs. Bugaboo Donkey 5 Size

Both the Bubgaboo Donkey 3 and Donkey 5 both weigh in at 12.3kg in mono and 14.9kg in Duo/Twin. However, Bugaboo has improved the fold of the pushchair reducing the one piece standing fold by 16cm – the most compact fold yet.

The reduced fold of the Donkey 5 allows for easier direction for getting through doorways and spaces without difficulty.

Bugaboo Donkey Manoeuvrability

Thanks to its front swivel wheels and tight turning circle, the Donkey 5 can be pushed with just one hand, a rarity in most double prams. The Donkey 5 has a new and improved fold and unfold which means you are ready for an adventure in a flash, despite having your hands full with twins! The large puncture proof tyres ensure that every walk is as smooth as can be. Whether you are going up and down a curb or exploring rougher terrain it's always easy to push, turn and manoeuvre.

What’s New with the Donkey 5?

Breezy Bassinet

The beautiful new breezy bassinet will keep baby or twins comfortable and regulate their temperature, making it the ultimate year-round stroller. It becomes breezy in just 1 second, and when sealed, the insulated padded panels offer superior protection from the elements. For twins, it also allows them to connect with each other from their very first adventures together.

Improved Folding - Most Compact Yet

The improved ease of folding and unfolding enhances the user experience. A lighter and more compact fold allows for easier transport, which makes going on family days out even easier.

Seating and Harness

The seat, bassinet and side luggage basket position has also been lifted from 54cm to 57cm, giving parents that much needed storage space.

The higher seat positions on the Donkey 5 means that your children are closer to you than on previous models. Being the same height means that no twin is left behind unlike many double pushchairs. The cosy ergonomically padded seats are great for your curious and active toddlers and the quick-click harness means you're ready to go in seconds. 

New and Exciting Colours

Premium styling with innovative soft touch fabrics with water repellent technology and added padding to keep baby safe and comfortable. Easy to clean and always perfect thanks to machine washable care and durable Bugaboo quality

The exciting new colour palette and premium detailing including new graphite chassis allows customers a greater level of customisation.
