The Bugaboo Donkey 5 Duo: a combi pram for all circumstances
If you have two children or are just expecting your second child, the Donkey 5 Duo is a perfect fit for you because it adapts to all the changes in your family. For example, you can use one seat unit for the older child and the carrycot for your baby. Or you can use two seat units at the same time when your children grow too big for the carrycot. While you are still expecting your second child, or when your older child is no longer in the pushchair, the Donkey 5 can easily be pushed together and used as a mono pushchair with only one seat unit or only one carrycot. However you want to use the Donkey 5 Duo, it will delight you with flexible solutions and excellent quality. You can rely on it for years and use it later for a third and fourth sibling. You can always rely on the high-quality fabrics and enjoy the timeless design. When you order the Bugaboo Donkey 5 Duo, you will receive a frame, a frame for the carrycot with a matching fabric cover and two frames for seat units with matching covers. In addition, both a lower basket and a side basket are included. The side basket is used if you are only using one seat unit.
The Donkey 5 Duo is special
In the following we will show you what makes the Donkey 5 Duo so special. We are fascinated by the great quality and the clever solutions that Bugaboo has found.
Always comfortable on the road
Not only your children will be comfortable in the ergonomic seat unit and carrycot. Bugaboo has also thought of you. The push handle is height adjustable so that you can adapt it perfectly to your height. The canopy includes a ventilation window with mesh, so you can stay in touch with your children at all times. When your children get tired, you can also easily extend the canopy with the help of a zip.
The Donkey 5 Duo adapts to you
With the Donkey 5 Duo, you are always prepared for the future. You can push it together as a mono pushchair for just one child, use it as a combination pushchair with a seat unit and a carrycot or with two seat units, or if you are expecting twins in the future, you can transport two newborns in it with an additional carrycot. Even if you have three children, you can take one along with the separately available ride-on board.
Unpaved on any surface
The Donkey 5 is suitable for any terrain thanks to the non-marking PE wheels. The movable front wheels make for a tight turning circle, which keeps you nice and nimble even with two children. For uneven surfaces, you can lock the front wheels so that you can also explore woods and meadows. In two-wheel mode, which is possible with two seat units, you can pull the Donkey over snow, sand and pebbles behind you.
Compact and quickly stored away
Even if you have a small flat or a small boot, that's no problem for the Donkey 5 Duo. It can be folded in just a few easy steps, even if the carrycot or seat unit are still mounted on it. Alternatively, you can stow it upright. If a very small pack size is required, for example for a flight, you can remove the side basket, wheels, seat unit and carrycot.
What is the difference between the Donkey 5 and its predecessor?
Better air circulation
The net in the Donkey 5's carrycot is now even better. It is permeable to air, which means that there is always a very good exchange of air. As it is not opaque, babies can explore the environment and older siblings can make contact with you.
Seat unit and carrycot now even higher
Both the carrycot and seat unit are now even higher on the frame of the Donkey 5. This protects your back and gives the children a greater distance from the harmful exhaust fumes. The seat unit is now 57 cm high and the carrycot is now 51 cm above the ground.
Quick and intuitive stowage
The revised folding mechanism of the Donkey 5 now makes your everyday life with children even easier. Because the pram is now even easier and quicker to assemble and fold, you have more time for the other important things in everyday life.
The attachment points on the frame of the Donkey 5 are another new feature. They have been revised and now offer space for all kinds of accessories that you can get separately from us. These include things like the ride-on board or the cup holder.
Clever harness system
The new 5-point harness in the Bugaboo Donkey 5 is fascinating. It allows you to buckle and unbuckle your children with just one hand. This is possible thanks to the quick-click function, which now makes buckling up your children even more comfortable.
In addition to all the clever functions, the design is now even more beautiful. For example, the seams on the wind cover have been removed. The frame was previously silver and now comes in graphite. Overall, the design has become calmer. For example, the logo is now also embroidered and the wrist strap has been revised.
The Donkey 5 as part of the Bugaboo Mineral Collection
Bugaboo has a Mineral collection, which is characterised by high-quality fabrics and natural colours. The inside of the canopy here is light grey, which makes it stand out in colour and surrounds your child with a bright colour.

While the frame stands out with its black colour, black handles and matt black hubcaps, the covers of the seat unit and the carrycot as well as the sun canopy stand out in taupe.

Here, too, the frame with the handles is black and the hubcaps are matt black. However, the seat unit, the carrycot and the sun canopy are in a washed-out black.
