We understand it can be confusing when browsing the different ranges of car seats and strollers to quickly understand which adapters are compatible with which products. This is why we’ve created a simple guide so you know which car seat adapter you need with your Bugaboo stroller.
In this post, we have also provided examples of the most popular Bugaboo strollers and their unique features, just in case you’re still deciding which one is best for you and your little cherub.
Car seat adapters
What are car seat adapters used for Bugaboo strollers? Adapters provide a safe and easy connection between your Bugaboo car seat and stroller. The click-and-go system makes it quick and straightforward to go from vehicle to stroller or carrying to stroller in seconds.
The Bugaboo Turtle Air by Nuna car seat is the Bugaboo car seat that is compatible with Bugaboo strollers. You will need car seat adapters to attach the car seat to one of Bugaboo’s strollers. Different adapters work for different strollers. In addition, Bugaboo adapters are also compatible with some Maxi Cosi car seats.
Turtle Air car seat
The Turtle Air car seat is super lightweight, weighing only 3kg to make lifting and carrying easier. It’s compatible with all Bugaboo strollers, from the all-terrain Fox 3 and Fox 5 to the compact Dragonfly and Butterfly stroller, plus everything in between. The car seat is suitable for newborns up to around 12 months old or when your baby’s shoulders reach the height marker.
The Turtle Air car seat is designed for ultimate comfort with its premium foam padding and Merino wool insert for temperature control. Transform the car seat into a cosy cocoon with the sun canopy and snooze shade for when your little cherub is resting.
It has side impact protection and shock absorption with a high-strength handle, integrated foam and protective headrest to take safety to the next level. When paired with the Bugaboo 360 i-Size base, the Turtle Air is i-Size compliant.
Which adapters are compatible with which stroller?
While only one Bugaboo car seat can be connected to a stroller, there are several different adapters. In this section, we go through some of the most popular adapters accompanied by some of the most popular Buggabo strollers.
Butterfly car seat adapters
Butterfly compact folding pushchair
The Butterfly is made for the fast-paced city life with a 1-second fold, ultra-compact design and has been certified for air travel. The quick fold allows you to carry it down staircases, lift it onto the train or put it into the trunk of a car hassle-free. It even features a hands-free carry handle so you can walk with your little one holding your hand and have the stroller over your shoulder.
The Butterfly weighs only 7.3kg but doesn’t compromise on strength. It can easily support your little one and carry a basket of shopping. The optional bumper bar attaches to your Butterfly stroller and creates a safe and comfortable forcefield everywhere you go. The Butterfly compact stroller has extra padded cushioning, an extendable canopy and recline positions to keep your little passenger comfortable.
Dragonfly car seat adapters
Dragonfly compact folding pushchair
Meet the Dragonfly, Bugaboo’s most urban stroller. The Dragonfly’s innovative design can fold with the carrycot or seat unit into a compact, self-standing unit. City+ drive means you and your babe will experience outstanding comfort on urban terrains. The Bugaboo Dragonfly offers precision steering, smart suspension, and the new urban wheel design has enhanced traction for sharper handling and easier navigation.
The stroller’s extra large under-carriage basket allows you to carry everything you need with you, and it even has an expandable rear pocket. It has all the features that you’d expect from Bugaboo, including an easy-buckle harness, extendable canopy and adjustable sizing.
Fox car seat adapters
Fox 3 stroller
The Fox 3 is the ultimate stroller for a smooth ride on any terrain. You and your baby can feel equally comfortable roaming the city or countryside. The things that are immediately striking about this stroller are the quality and soft touch premier materials on the cover and handle, the strong and sturdy frame, and the bouncy suspension.
It’s super light and easy to manoeuvre, so as a parent, you’ll feel ready for a day of adventure with the Fox 3 stroller. Starting with the iconic central joint, it works in perfect harmony with the rest of the chassis and the four-wheel suspension to absorb any shakes and wobbles from going up tricky curbs or across bumpy cobbles. It also has a simple, one-piece self-standing compact fold for easy storage and travelling.
The Fox 3 stroller is strong, durable and designed to provide ultimate comfort for your newborn to toddler. The spacious carrycot with an aerated mattress and open and close breeze window helps your baby to regulate their temperature. With the large, extendable canopy, your sleepy baby can have long, restful naps when on the go.
The Fox 5 stroller is equally as impressive as the Fox 3 stroller but with impressive new and improved features that take the Fox stroller to the next level. This stroller has been engineered to perfection to make sure that every outing is simple and intuitive. It offers everything the Fox 3 does, as well as easy, one-hand adjustments, a new chassis design, an extendable seat unit, a basket upgrade, board attachments and new colours.
With just one hand, you can adjust the handle, seat until or fold the stroller for those times when you’re juggling your baby and shopping. The extendable seat easily accommodates your toddler’s ever-changing size as you can extend both the canopy and the footrest 5 cm each.
