What is the Bugaboo Turtle?
Bugaboo's stroller range is iconic, with something for every family lifestyle, destination and need - the original all-purpose Cameleon, single-to-double Donkey, town-to-country Fox, city-nipping Bee and now the globe-trotting Ant, as well as the Runner chassis. The journey has stopped at the car boot, though. Until now.
The Bugaboo Turtle by Nuna is a stylish i-Size car seat with the Dutch company's distinctive minimalist look and logo that Bugaboo says will enable you to "transition smoothly, seamlessly and safely from car to stroller".
Most parenting lives start with that first exciting, nerve-wracking trip home from the hospital and now Bugaboo can be there from the very beginning. The Bugaboo Turtle by Nuna has the credentials from two renowned brands to provide the safety, comfort and intuitive ease-of-use to give you peace of mind when travelling.
Based on the Nuna PIPA Icon with its 1.8 'Good' ADAC crash protection rating, the Bugaboo Turtle by Nuna features patented tailor tech™ memory foam for optimal side-impact protection, along with seven-step adjustable head support and a no-thread five-point harness. The two-part removable infant insert offers a better position for your newborn that can be adapted for the best fit as they grow.
The signature Bugaboo two-step canopy has a water-repellent finish and comes complete with mesh peek-a-boo window and a UPF 50+ ‘smart visor' for a quiet cocoon, secured by magnets. The Oeko-Tex certified fabrics are removable and washable for the cleanest, most hygienic space, and the Merino wool insert, also washable, will help keep baby warmer in winter and cooler in hot weather.
The Bugaboo Turtle by Nuna is designed to click easily onto your Bugaboo pushchair chassis and look the part too, complete with Bugaboo's trademark white buttons for adjusting the ergonomic carry handle (with leather-look grip) and strap lengths, and releasing the seat from the stroller.
As with any standard infant carrier (without a lie-flat function), it is recommended that a baby under two months is only in it for up to 30 minutes at a time, and for no longer than two hours at a time until six months old. This is to avoid any potential risk to airflow and associated oxygen levels or spine development.
The Bugaboo Turtle by Nuna can be installed in the vehicle with the adult seat belt - handy when using taxis or getting a lift - but is i-Size compliant when used with the Bugaboo Turtle by Nuna ISOFIX base. This is a true lock™ base providing triple installation confirmation via simple-to-view coloured indicators.
The seat is also aircraft certified, making it easier to take with you and giving reassurance for trips further afield. It weighs in at 5.1kg and measures 66(l) x 43.8(w) x 58.9(h)cm.
The Bugaboo Turtle by Nuna is available to buy from 15th August 2019, priced at £219 including specific adaptors for your Bugaboo stroller - Fox, Cameleon, Donkey or Bee. The Bugaboo Turtle by Nuna ISOFIX base is £129.
