Bugaboo Donkey. (Don't they know I've had my tubes tied?) It's described as a mon-duo-mono- stroller with more storage space than ever before, and apparently it's the first ever buggy that can accommodate two kids of different ages, or twins. Hmmm....back in the late 90's I had a double buggy that did the very same thing.
The Bugaboo Donkey will not be available online, and of course, there's already a waiting list. It is available now to people who obviously have more money than sense. Now that I know I'm not reading these numbers incorrectly, allow me to share the prices with you:
The Mono (for one child) will be $1199 or 899 pounds. The Duo is $1499 or 1099 pounds, and the Twin comes in at an alarming $1659 or 1219 pounds.
I'm assuming a large price tag will be sewn onto the outside of the hood because the only possible reason for buying a Bugaboo Donkey is to show the world and his wife that you can afford one. There's probably a plastic pocket somewhere on the side where you can display your latest bank statement too.
I'm sorry but am I the only one who's speechless here? Normally I don't give a hoot how people spend their money but it's a baby stroller fer cryin' out loud. How can anyone possibly justify spending that much to wheel a baby or two around when half of the babies on this planet aren't going to make it to their second birthday? Come on people step back before you purchase this piece of luxury and consider your motives. Are you really that insecure that you have to wear your income (or debt) on your sleeve like this?
Disclaimer - I also have to tell you that although Bugaboo is charging ridiculous amounts of money for this product, they are donating 1% of purchases to the Global Fund to help eliminate AIDS in Africa. Oh well, that's alright then.
