Chasing your toddler down a busy street may feel like something out of a horror story, but for most parents, it’s just life! Fortunately, the masterminds of the pushchair industry came up with the perfect solution – the buggy board.
Having a platform for your little one to climb onboard has revolutionised the simple pushchair into a toddler’s out and about lifeline. From the sit-on board to the step-on platform, getting around with your child has never been easier.
Here’s our roundup of the best pushchairs for buggy boards around:
The innovative minds at iCandy didn’t only want to create adaptable pushchairs; they wanted to lead the charge with integrated buggy boards! So, here we have it – the iCandy Lime. This system is suitable from birth in carrycot mode, all the way up to when your child reaches 25kg in the seated unit.
Here’s where it gets exciting! The integrated ride-on platform is perfect for any older siblings up to 20kg – around the 5-year-old mark. As soon as your toddler is able to stand independently, they can safely use the buggy board when you’re on the school run, or out and about.
The buggy boards positioning means you’ll never feel limited by the space in front of you, and your children can safely move around with you within the safety of your arms.
Now, you can’t mention the iCandy Lime without introducing you to the pivotal iCandy Orange. This integrated buggy board pushchair is the one that started it all. First introduced back in 2017, the Orange has seen many upgrades over the years.
Unlike the Lime, the Orange can be converted from a single buggy to a double with the additional seat unit or carrycot. Which essentially means you can transport two children within the pushchair itself, as well as an extra one aboard the ride-on platform. The Orange has multiple configurations, as both seats can be swapped with a car seat or carrycot, and be reversed each way. A perfect addition to the growing family!
A top-selling pushchair brand amongst parents, the Bugaboo range is a must-have for strolling the city streets or taking on rougher terrain. Unlike the iCandy, you will need to purchase the add-on Bugaboo Comfort Wheeled Board as an extra. Fortunately, the board is universal with any Bugaboo system.
Easy to attach, your toddler can either sit on the saddle-style seat or stand up between your arms as you push. The board’s ingenious flexible positioning creates extra walking space, so you won’t need to worry about tripping or kicking the board in front of you.
We’ve highlighted the Bugaboo Donkey, as it is one of the range’s most adaptable pushchairs. It easily converts into a double buggy or pram for your growing family needs. If storage is what you need, the Donkey offers extendable side luggage space, as well as a roomy under-seat basket.
Made popular for its flexibility and easy usage, the Quinny Hubb has become an instant favourite amongst parents. Serving your growing family, the Quinny can accommodate up to two seats, carrycots and infant car seats as you see fit. It is unlike any from-birth tandem pushchair you have ever seen, and that’s why parents love it!
Like the Bugaboo range, you can easily attach the Quinny Hubb Hop-on Board to make your on-the-go journeys more manageable. With its skandi-inspired wooden design, the Hop-on board stands out amongst its buggy board peers. Attaching to the frame of the extra-large shopping basket, you won’t find yourself tripping into the board as you walk.
Lightweight and incredibly robust, the Silver Cross Zest Stroller is great for parents that want a compact stroller. Offering support for your newborn to toddler, the Silver Cross is a good investment for those on a budget.
The star of the show though has to be the Lascal Buggy Board – the buggy board that started it all! Its innovation is such that the Lascal offers a universal fit to pretty much every stroller, pram and pushchair on the market. So, your little one can climb on board when they get tired feet, or you simply need to get somewhere fast!
When not in use, the Lascal can be hung up behind your pushchair so that it is safely out of your way. Your child can grow in confidence as they travel around between your arms, and they can get a different view of the world from where they stand.
Designed with the expanding family in mind, the Joie EvaLite Duo is built with newborns and toddlers in mind. It is incredibly user-friendly with its one-handed folding mechanism and can be upgraded to a complete travel system.
Now that you have your pushchair sorted, clip a Lascal Buggy Board behind the seat, and you are ready to take on the day!
Popping with vibrant, colourful patterns, the Cosatto Woosh Pushchair is a fun addition to any family. The innovative design allows the pushchair to adapt as your little one grows from newborn to toddler.
Although the Cosatto doesn’t have an integrated ride-on platform, its sturdy aluminium frame is strong enough to hold a buggy board in place. All you have to do is clip a Lascal Mini Buggy Board to the frame behind the seat and transform your hellish school run to a blissful stroll with your babe and toddler on board.
As we have mentioned before, the Lascal brand is the most universally compatible buggy board on the market. With its built-in suspension and anti-slip platform, your little one can ride with confidence. When not in use, simply unclip the board or hook it up out the way.
Growing a family is one of the most challenging times of our lives. So why make it harder on yourself? Which buggy board caught your eye?
