Bugaboo Fox 3 and Turtle One Review

Watch bugaboo fox 3 and turtle one infant car seat video review

The Bugaboo Fox 3 and Bugaboo Turtle One are one of our all time favorite stroller+car seat combinations. At a time when you have a million combinations of car seats and strollers, this remains one of the best travel systems out there. Whether you’re shopping for your first baby or looking to change it up for a younger sibling, the Bugaboo Fox 3 and Bugaboo Turtle One travel system lives up to its reputation for being easy to use and having buttery smooth steering!

And while there’s a lot of information out there regarding the Bugaboo Fox 3 and Bugaboo Turtle One, here are a few features you may not know already.

Each Bugaboo Fox 3 stroller is engineered to stroll over 2400 miles

That’s the distance from New York to California! Maybe you won’t walk 2400 miles with one or two children. But you’ll walk further than you did pre-kids and having a stroller tested for 2400 miles and uneven terrains is key. The Bugaboo Fox 3 has the smoothest steering of any single stroller. It’ll put up with cracked sidewalks, cobblestones/brick, grassy parks, and dirt, so you never even notice the terrain beneath you!

Bugaboo owns and runs their own factory with European work sensibilities

To guarantee the highest quality in our production process, Bugaboo has its own factory in Xiamen, China. They make sure their products are manufactured and sourced sustainably, and produced under safe, fair and humane working conditions. Bugaboo is one of the only stroller brands to own and operate its own factory and it shows in their materials and products.

Bugaboo’s website sells almost every part of the Bugaboo Fox 3

Just about every part of a Bugaboo stroller can be bought on their website’s Parts page. There isn’t another baby stroller brand out there that does this. Bugaboo sells replacement parts for everything from the major parts like replacement Bugaboo Fox Seat Frames and Bugaboo Fox Rear Wheel Replacements, to nondescript plastic components like Bugaboo Fox Chassis Central Joint Caps. If you have a cosmetic mishap or are beyond the 3-year warranty, no problem…the Bugaboo Parts page is easy to navigate with tons of photos to help you find the right part!

The Bugaboo Fox 3 has the largest UPF 50+ sun canopy and bug barrier

Three huge panels of UPF 50+ protection reach from the Bugaboo Fox 3’s head to about knee level. Even in a full reclined position, the Bugaboo Fox 3 Sun Canopy provides more protection than any other stroller.

And for the sunniest areas, you can swap out the normal Bugaboo Fox 3 Sun Canopy for the  the Bugaboo Fox 3 Breezy Canopy: an equally long canopy made of outdoor material, with extra mesh windows, a roll up window, and a mosquito mesh extension that closes the gap from knee to toe. 

Go ahead, shake the Bugaboo Fox 3 

The most overlooked, small detail on the Bugaboo Fox 3 is its silent frame. Our gear experts in our two brick-and-mortar stores love to have expectant parents give our floor models a good shake. You can actually “hear” the quality difference. Bugaboo Fox 3 joints are similar to your car’s all wheel suspension, designed to allow the Bugaboo Fox 3 frame to twist and bend over uneven ground without stressing the frame.

Here’s a snippet about Bugaboo’s quality and from our recent blog about the new Bugaboo Giraffe High Chair:

Love note to Bugaboo: Bugaboo products have some of the longest lifespans in all of baby gear. Seeing a 10 year old Bugaboo stroller on its third family and 9th child is completely normal. Instead of flooding the world with baby gear that needs trashing and replacing after its third child, Bugaboo designs their baby products to last longer than you could ever need it to. Longer product lifespan leads to a smaller ecological footprint…simply by selling high quality.

The Bugaboo Turtle One car seat installs with one hand

With the ISO-FIX based rigid LATCH system and load leg, the Bugaboo Turtle One snaps right into the car quickly and easily. The rigid LATCH system avoids the issue of manually tightening  any straps for a tight fit, and completely avoids any inter-spousal driveway conflict. And since the Bugaboo Turtle One un-installs just as quickly (also one-handed) you can get the car detailed and clean up any spills without struggling to reinstall it again!

Leave the car seat adapter on the Bugaboo Turtle One

You’ll need the Bugaboo Fox Maxi Cosi Car Seat Adapter to adapt the Bugaboo Fox 3 to the Bugaboo Turtle One, you can leave the adapters attached to the car seat. The adapters stay out of the way and still allow the Bugaboo Turtle One to safely lock into its base in your car. No risk of losing anything, nor forgetting the adapter at home!

The Bugaboo Fox 3 and Bugaboo Turtle One are a perfectly paired combination that equally supports a new parent as much as it protects its little passenger. With their dedication to style, functionality, and ethical manufacturing they’re the truest baby gear triple threat!
