Bugaboo Dragonfly: The Game-Changing New Pram Made For City Life

By Phoebe Youl

Calling all new parents! If you’ve been searching for the perfect pram, you’ll know how hard it can be to find one that ticks all the boxes. For city-living families, finding the right pram can be even more difficult—as your list of wants for your daily driver becomes even more important when you’ve got things like space constraints, busy sidewalks, stairs, and public transport to consider. 

Thankfully, the team at Bugaboo has been hard at work, designing a pram that’s specifically created to minimise compromise. Say hello to the brand-new and innovative Bugaboo Dragonfly Pram, the latest game-changer that’s set to redefine your parenting game with its patented, one-hand compact folding technology. 

As most city-dwelling parents will know, typically when it comes to choosing a pram, if you want a lightweight, compact, and on-the-go-friendly model, you’ll usually have to sacrifice other important things like comfort, carrying capacity, and versatility. This is exactly the dilemma the team at Bugaboo was looking to solve.

Taking its lead from Bugaboo’s existing iconic designs, the new Bugaboo Dragonfly was created to make city life even easier. Weighing in at a mere 7kgs, this baby is designed to glide through the concrete jungle, easily navigating busy streets and crowded cafes, while being lightweight and compact enough to make travelling up and down stairs and on and off public transport as seamless as possible. 

The standout feature has to be the Bugaboo Dragonfly’s patented one-hand fold technology, which allows you to compactly fold it into a self-standing position without having to remove the seat or bassinet. It also features a convenient carry strap, so you can comfortably carry it on one shoulder when not in use, leaving your hands free for the more important stuff!

Designed to take your child from newborn, all the way through to 22kg, the Bugaboo Dragonfly offers up unmatched comfort for your child, whether using the full-size bassinet or the seat configuration that can be easily switched between forward-facing and parent-facing positions. 

Other key features include the Bugaboo Dragonfly’s all-new high-performance urban wheels and full suspension, that will comfortably navigate you across all types of urban terrains, from rough sidewalks to the tiniest of shopping aisles and even grassy parks. Its smart and flexible storage system features an expandable rear pocket that can move to wherever it’s needed most and the extra-large underseat basket will take a load off your shoulders during your daily trips to the supermarket, thanks to its 10kg carry capacity. 

The Bugaboo Dragonfly, along with its innovative accessories, is available to order in Australia from Tuesday 8 August 2023. Head here to shop it now
