We're super excited to announce there's a new member of the Bugaboo Pram Family - the Bugaboo Ant!  We have long-awaited the addition of a compact, travel-size stroller to their line up, and this delivers a high-quality, feature-rich option!


Bugaboo have compromised very little to get all of the great features of their full-sized prams into this little compact package. With a fully-reclinable and reversible seat this travel-ready stroller is suitable from newborn through to toddlerhood with a seat capacity of up to 22kg.


Although there are a few extra steps required to achieve such a compact fold, the components that have been designed to achieve this are super innovative.  The seat itself features an extendable back support that packs down for folding; the canopy folds away as normal, then there’s some really clever hinges built into the side that are going to lock it into place which allows for a super compact fold; the seat then folds over and down, and to complete the fold the handle pushes down and into a compact standing fold.

The frame packs down into a nice sturdy outer shell that comes in two finishes. It offers the same great padded seat, fabrications, extendable canopy, and the premium melange version features a mesh windows which is going to be great for summer strolling.

There’s a great travel pocket at the back that can be accessed while folded and holds up to 5kg, and is perfect for something like your nappy change wallet. The underseat basked holds up to 3kg and is accessible from the front. The pram also features integration points for Bugaboo’s existing accessories including a cup holder on the handlebard and an inbuilt connection for the Comfort Wheeled Board, so if you do have two kids and you are travelling, you’re going to be able to do that no problem with this pram. Suspension has been built into both the front and rear wheels, ensuring your baby has a smooth ride.

Additional accessories specifically designed for compatibility with the Ant, including an Organiser and a Raincover that attaches with toggles to the frame.

Coming in at 7.2kg, we recommend checking ahead with your airline if you are planning to take this travel pram onboard to make sure it meets their requirements. Size-wise at just 55 x 38 x 23cm when folded, it will easily fit in the overhead compartment.

If you’re looking for a premium, full-sized pram, but you want something that’s compact and lightweight, either to throw into the back of the car or to take on holidays with you, the Bugaboo Ant is going to be your perfect match. 

We hope this review has helped your decision about the best travel stroller for your family, as always we're here to help so leave a comment below or we'd love to see you in store for a test drive - book your demo today!
