Meet the Bugaboo Fox 3 Stroller

The Bugaboo Fox 3 is an upgraded third generation model and the September/October 2021 iteration of the original Bugaboo Fox.

The Fox3 is the company’s versatile and most well-known flagship model. It differs from the Fox2 in terms of enhanced, more cushioned fabrics and new colorways for EVERY part of the stroller. It also includes a new graphite aerospace aluminum frame, as well as an additional ventilation panoramic bassinet window.

Between the Fox 2 and Fox 3 variants, the textiles of the latter can be switched out. Find out more about this stroller below.

Value for Money

It is currently available on Amazon for $1,249.00, which is an expensive buy for most. Since many of our parents who participated in our survey are satisfied with its functions and ease of use, they say it’s all worth it.

Typically, a full stroller system package is given with the stroller (with carrycot). The chassis, materials, and hood color can all be selected from a variety of versions to completely personalize your Fox 3. You can choose how you want your stroller to look by changing any of the parts, which are all also sold separately.

What parents say

“I thought it was expensive. Even though each item was purchased separately, why did it feel like a 1.3K stroller? So I gave it back. It was never used, thus I’m hoping for a complete refund.” – R. July 20, 2022, 3 stars

“Although the cost of this stroller is high, you unquestionably get your money’s worth. The stroller exudes quality, elegance, and usefulness.” – J. February 28, 2022, 5 stars

“The ease with which the tires move is amazing. I’m so pleased with this purchase.” – D. November 3, 2021, 5 stars

“Although we were able to figure it out and assemble it rather quickly, I wish the directions had some words to go along with them. We made a risk with this one, and I’m so pleased we did. It’s all worth it!” –J. October 19, 2021, 5 stars

Ease of Use

With the Bugaboo Fox 3, in just a few seconds, your growing baby will be ready for takeoff! This stroller features one of the safest seats in town, thanks to its incredibly soft shoulder pads, 5-point harness, and secure straps that can be adjusted separately.

The Fox 3 car seat helps to keep you on the go without waking your little one from his nap, from your first trip home from the hospital, and to all your subsequent travels. When you buy a Fox 3, adapters are included.

On the other hand, the carrycot’s bumper bar may obscure the pusher’s vision of the child while strolling. This isn’t a significant problem – the bar can simply be removed and placed in the storage basket underneath the stroller.

What parents say

“It’s smooth and actually feels like a luxury ride. The bassinet’s mattress is extraordinarily soft and convenient to clean.” – B. February 28, 2022, 5 stars

“The stroller is ideal for my husband and me because it is lightweight and simple to maneuver, especially with the adjustable handle. Even the stroller’s appearance is something he likes!” – A. January 11, 2022, 5 stars

“The Fox 3 is versatile, comfortable, and simple to use. Any stage of your baby’s development can be accommodated, thanks to its three various configurations.” – M. November 4, 2021, 5 stars

“It is as simple to use as it is comfortable. Due to the usage of the same frame, the bassinet to seat feature is attractive.” – A. October 18, 2021, 5 stars

Parent Tip!

To help parents learn about how to put the Fox 3 stroller and bassinet together, Bugaboo has produced some helpful YouTube videos like this one. Check it out!

Portability

It’s easy to locate the buttons for fast and easy folding. The Fox 3 makes it easy for parents to identify these buttons; these are white. Parents are also happy about its being lightweight. And to save on space, the wheels of this stroller may be easily removed even while the carrycot or seat unit is attached to the chassis.

What parents say

“Overall, the stroller is quite lightweight and portable for my husband and me.” – A. January 11, 2022, 5 stars

Maneuverability

The Bugaboo Fox 3 has large, puncture-resistant wheels. Its recognizable center joint and 4-wheel suspension combine for a smooth, steady ride that’s ideal for uninterrupted naps.

Its wheel spring suspension allows you to handle bumps with ease and quickly turn a tight radius when needing to make a surprise turn.

What parents say

“The wheels make getting around the city quick and simple. I like how it reclines and is simple to open and close. Every parent in a city should try it, in my opinion. Lightweight and convenient to transport.” – R. December 19, 2021, 5 stars

“I can only compare the ride to a hot knife into butter because it is so smooth and the maneuverability is so excellent. This stroller is definitely something I’d recommend!” – M. November 4, 2021, 5 stars

“The Bugaboo Fox 3 is great when it comes to pushing. It’s miles ahead of the competition.” – W. October 27, 2021, 5 stars

Safety and Quality

The chassis of the Fox 3 appears to be sturdy and long-lasting. Parents appreciate that the buttons for folding are white and distinct from one another.

This stroller model has more design options, thanks to the Fox 3 chassis’ availability in the new graphite grey color in addition to black. The Fox 3 is much easier to fold and lift because it isn’t as big or heavy as other strollers.

Its 5-point harness straps click into place with ease, and the shoulder pads are incredibly comfortable. However, each strap must be fastened separately rather than all being fastened together at once, which parents found challenging when a toddler was wriggling.

What parents say

“The fabric and all of the materials are of extremely high quality. This is by far my favorite stroller, and I have four children whose ages span from three months to thirteen.” – J. December 20, 2021, 5 stars

“Because of this stroller’s outstanding quality, I can be sure that I will use it for the next four to five years and eventually be able to give it to a new family.” – J. December 20, 2021, 5 stars

“Everything about this stroller is extremely well-made and serves a purpose, which I appreciate. It has strong fabrics and practical parts.” – A. January 11, 2022, 5 stars

Accessorize Your Bugaboo Fox 3 Stroller

Car seat adapters as well as the rain cover are included in the box. Meanwhile, you can purchase the cup holder for $39.95 on Amazon. The Fox 3’s roomy bassinet includes a unique ventilation system – it helps your baby to feel comfortable by regulating their normal body temperature, and it piques their curiosity to look at your strolling path.

What parents say

“I appreciate how easy it is to add accessories to make our life simpler. We are also receiving a diaper backpack, and we already have the drink attachment. The ability to use a stroller while keeping our hands-free makes life so much simpler.” – L. April 6, 2022, 5 stars

“Sometimes we take our toddler out for a nighttime stroll. The colder months are quickly approaching, so I bought a footmuff. For us, the accessories’ ease of use is crucial. The premium exterior fabric and buttery soft fleece-like interior material from Bugaboo are another triumph.” – J. December 20, 2021, 5 stars

Should You Consider the Bugaboo Fox 3 for Your Family?

The Bugaboo Fox 3 is a sturdy, super easy-to-push stroller that’s also a breeze to maneuver over different surfaces. It’s got good suspension and is simple to fold/unfold. You’ll find that it can fit easily into your car trunk, too. Another great feature is its breathable carrycot and premium finish.

It’s got a few hiccups though, like it’s fiddly to convert from the carrycot to the seat (you might need to spend at least an hour to do this), its canopy feels a bit flimsy, and the straps on the seat tend to unbuckle quite easily. And most of all, it comes with a hefty price tag.

But if these cons aren’t an issue for you, then the Bugaboo Fox 3 could be a great stroller option for your family.
