Differences between Bugaboo Bee 5 and Fox

The main difference between these 2 great pushchairs is their size and purpose. The Fox is a bigger and more robust feeling pushchair. The Bee 5 makes for a perfect travel pushchair or even a small pushchair for grandparents house or short trips where a larger pushchair is not as suitable.

Carrycot materials are included with the Fox. While both Pushchairs are suitable from birth, the carrycot does give increased peace of mind that your baby is safe and comfortable in those important early days.

The Bugaboo Fox also features 2 wheel beach mode. In this mode you can use your Fox as a 2 wheel pull along pushchair. This feature is particularly useful over tougher to navigate terrain such as sand (hence the beach mode name).
