Using the Bugaboo Donkey 5 with a newborn

With your first child the Bugaboo Donkey 5 is purchased with a Bugaboo Donkey5 Sun Canopy, creating the Mono setup. Families in tropical climates can consider the Bugaboo Donkey Breezy Canopy. The Mono is typically kept in the narrow setting with the bassinet (newborn rated, with new breezy panels, and an aerated mattress), and Side Luggage Basket. The Bugaboo Donkey5 is newborn ready right out of the box, no additional accessories required! For newborn use, attach the bassinet to give your little one a flat surface to nap on - or even sleep in overnight when used with the Bugaboo Stroller Bassinet Stand.

You can also use the Bugaboo Donkey Mono Maxi Cosi Adapter with several leading car seats, including the new Bugaboo Turtle Air by Nuna!

Seating options for after infancy

When your little one is 6-months old and sitting upright, convert the bassinet into the multi-recline seat. They'll have the option of facing rear and forward, have an easy adjusting harness, and a seat back that prevents your little one’s head from leaning to the side.


Unique Features

The side luggage basket adds a removable second storage basket to your Bugaboo Donkey 5. It sits up next to your seat/bassinet within your reach as a convenient shopping bag!

The Bugaboo Donkey 5 is the only convertible, side-by-side stroller. By doing this, the weight of the stroller and it’s passengers is perfectly distributed. The steering and handling is as smooth as a single stroller; you'll turn on a dime, roll up a curb, and pop up over a few stairs without ever thinking about it.

The Bugaboo Donkey 5 is the only all-terrain stroller with reversible facing seats. And one of the few all-terrains that even offers a bassinet, and they give it to you for FREE.

Box contents:
1 extendable stroller base
1 seat/bassinet frame
1 seat fabric
1 bassinet fabric
1 side luggage basket
1 rain cover

The Bugaboo Donkey 5 width myth

It's wide appearance is an illusion. At it's widest measurement it's right in line with popular full-size strollers. But even in Duo and Twin mode the Bugaboo Donkey 5 glides through doorways, and is only 2-4 inches wider than the average single stroller!

Was there a Bugaboo Donkey 4 release?

You didn't miss anything, there was no Bugaboo Donkey4. Bugaboo's manufacturing is done in China where the number four is associated with bad luck. Bugaboo skipped the Bugaboo Donkey4 and jumped right into the current Bugaboo Donkey 5.

Is a Bugaboo Donkey 5 stroller worth it?

Yes, absolutely! Plenty of families find themselves expecting less than a year after their first child. While a blessing, this cuts your single stroller’s timeline in half. A second stroller means jumping into a second round of stroller research, losing storage space, and a higher combined cost.

The Bugaboo Donkey 5 Base expands into a full-size double stroller that you can modify based on each child's age and developmental needs. Even while converting between Mono and Duo mode, the Bugaboo Donkey 5 stroller retains all its functions, features, and creature comforts. No other convertible stroller matches this capability.
