Bugaboo Donkey Guide
We specialise in selling parts and accessories for the Bugaboo Donkey. The Donkey is a unique buggy as it can be used as a single pushchair in 'mono' configuration (with a handy side luggage basket) and then the frame unclipped and expanded to add a second seat frame for more than one child. In 'duo' configuration, the Donkey is used with a seat for an older child and a bassinet for a baby. In 'twin' configuration, you're using either two bassinets or two seats, depending on the age of your twins. This makes the Donkey the most flexible double buggy available as it grows with your family.
You can use our site to configure the perfect pre-loved Donkey for you, either by selecting from a pre-built Donkey that's ready to ship or by customising your own from our wide range of parts and accessories.
The Donkey was released in 2011, followed by the Donkey 2 in 2017 and the Donkey 3 in 2020. Most of the parts are cross-compatible and we try to describe as clearly as possible what fits with what, as we know it can be confusing! This does mean you can pick and choose based on what's important to you, for example lots of people like to upgrade their Donkey chassis with Donkey 2 wheels as the wheels on the Donkey 2 are foam-filled, which many prefer to the air-filled original wheels. Or maybe you're expecting a new baby and want to give your Donkey a fresh look with a new colourful sun hood and matching bassinet apron.

If you have a Mono and want to make it into a Duo, you'll need what's known as a 'Duo Extension Set'; this is a seat/bassinet frame, a sun canopy plus wires and clamps, a carry handle and a raincover. You will also need to choose between a seat fabric (for toddlers) or bassinet fabric set (for infants) for your second seat.
