As with other luxury strollers, the Bugaboo Frog enjoys a sort of cult status among parents, and this stroller is frequently seen being pushed by celebrity moms and dads. Ordinary parents appreciate the Bugaboo Frog for its light 16-pound weight, smooth ride, sturdiness and easy-to-clean fabric. However, the Frog loses some points for difficulty of folding and storage, along with what some parents call inadequate weather protection. Needless to say, this stroller's hefty price tag also gives some shoppers pause. Professional reviews say this is mainly a nice-looking, average performing stroller.
We found the most balanced review for the Bugaboo Frog at the British review site Which? Online. Interestingly, results of this detailed testing differ from what we found at most user-review sites, where parents are largely enthusiastic about the Bugaboo Frog. Consumer Reports also includes the Bugaboo Frog in its latest comparison test of strollers.
British review publication Which.net uses professional panelists plus parent testers to evaluate strollers, and each model is also subjected to a series of durability tests. This is a well-balanced and credible review -- more thorough and detailed than reviews at Consumer Reports. Editors have tested several Bugaboo strollers, including the Bugaboo Frog, with surprising results.

Consumer Reports includes the expensive Bugaboo Frog in its evaluation of four other full-featured strollers priced from $50 up to almost $800. While we found it odd that editors lump a $50 budget stroller in the same class, it is interesting to see the Bugaboo Frog evaluated so dispassionately. The stroller is rated for maneuverability, ease of use and more, but editors don't say much about the stroller aside from the ratings.

Interestingly, the parent reviews for the Bugaboo Frog are more positive than the professional reviews we found.

About thirty parents review the Bugaboo Frog here, with most parents giving it high ratings. The most popular features cited are its lightweight frame and smooth ride, though some parents complain about the cumbersome, two-part fold. Also, some parents posting here feel that the Bugaboo Frog's extra accessories are expensive, and they recommend buying a second (cheaper) stroller for quick errands and travel.

A handful of parents post reviews here for the Bugaboo Frog. There aren't as many reviews for this stroller here as at other sites, however, making it less valuable.
