New baby on the way? Now’s the time to start thinking about how you are going to get around.
Clipping on to the back of a buggy, your toddler can hop on board when walking gets a bit too much! Generally designed for children between two and five years old, the buggy board is a lifesaver for those parents on the run.
Here’s our guide to the best buggy boards:
What ride-on boards are available:
Choosing a buggy board, or ride-on board doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Knowing the differences will help you on your way:
- Stand-on platform: The classic buggy board which clips onto the back of your buggy or pram. Your child can stand on the board as you push the pram.
- 2-in-1 boards: The converter board which encourages your toddler to have more independence. Converting into a scooter, this board can make the school run a bit smoother and less stressful as you don’t have to wrestle with a scooter and a pram.
- Adaptive buggy boards: The all-in-one board that works as a small seat, as well as a stand-on platform. An excellent option for those who don’t want to buy a double pushchair, as the adaptive buggy board can do it for you at a much lower cost.
