Rated a Very Helpful Review
User Rating: Very Good
Ease of Use:
excellent suspension and tires
accomodates 1 or 2 (toddler seat)
time consuming to collapse, and alter
steering is very difficult, sharp turns are imposible
The Bottom Line: for city use and walks get it
if your in and out of a car then dont
This is the fifth stroller I have owned. I always admired the bugaboo strollers and other high european styles however my budget didnt lend itself to this line of strollers. My first stroller was a safety first stroller and it did the trick. Cons: basket was very inaccessible, didnt fold very small, minimal recline, not very attractive. Pros: fit with the car seat easily, cheap! I then found a graco stroller that was full sized but had an umbrella fold. This one I didnt like at all. Because of the umbrella fold, the basket was tiny and completely unusable. Moreover, the seat didnt seem comfortable for baby and was very impractical for a newborn. The stroller could not stand when folded and had no carry handle. I sold the graco and the safety first in hopes to find something better. I then invested in the Chariot strollers (my first big purchase). These strollers are extremely expensive but very versatile. Pros: can be a jogging stroller, normal 4 wheel stroller, bike trailer, and more. Has excellent suspension, and padded seats (unusual in bike trailers), wonderful insulating, beautiful, and more. Cons: HUGE! cant really fit in my car at all (I did get the two seater Chariot CX2). It would fit into a station wagon or van easily however. I then picked up a small umbrella stroller from a garage sale. This was no good at all, there was no basket, canopy, cup holder, tray, etc. It was very short and I couldnt use it and I'm only 5'6.

One day, when I was 2 months pregnant with my second I came across the Queen Bee. I wanted something that could accomodate two children that was tandem (as I found with my chariot, side-by-side's often dont fit through single doorways or gates, or into cars well). When I found this stroller I instantly fell in love.
I have had the stroller for 4 months and here is my opinion.
The stroller is so gorgeous, I am constantly getting complements on it. It is really nice to be able to reverse which way baby is sitting. I love being able to look at my son and make faces with him when shopping. The basket is soooooooooooooooo great. The best part in my opinion. It is very strong and 100% accessible from any side of the stroller. It can hold groceries (i dont even need a shopping cart), jackets, diaper bags, the works. The stroller has built in suspension and large 12" tire wheels that are great with all terrains. The recline is amazing and the canopy is perfect. I love the foot muff! The foot break works well and it easy to activate.
The stroller is very bulky. When folding it with the seat attached it takes up my whole trunk and we have a toyota matrix. The toddler seat doesnt seem all that sturdy. Its supposed to hold up to 35 lbs, but my 25lb son makes it bend. The fabric isnt very soft so we always line it with a blanket when baby is sleeping. But above all, the steering is a pain. It is very hard to maneuver. Folding it takes two hands and is a bit awkward as you must reach over the handle bar.
Its a lovely pram but all in all it is very bulky and too difficult to maneuver.
