The Bugaboo was the original stroller released by the premium stroller brand Bugaboo. It introduced a unique modular system to the stroller market, with a seat that can convert from a bassinet into a harnessed toddler seat. The stroller is built for rugged terrain and claims to be manoeuvrable in such difficult conditions as sand and snow. The Bugaboo Frog was discontinued at the end of 2010.
