    I am going to get a buggy board for DD and think I will need a new pushchair for DS. At the moment I have a Maclaren single but I don't think that's going to be sturdy enough, anyone got any suggestions?

    I want something strong, with a decent basket and really comfy for DS.

    Most prams will take a buggy board..

    Does it need fold small? or is it a pram thats not going to travel much?


    Also, does it need to parent face or is that not an issue?

    Are u anti three wheelers?

    Are u against any particular colours?

    Lemme know and i'll come back with some idea for you

    Ive got a relativly cheapish buggy and the buggy board fits it. It also fits my emmaljunga too but fits the buggy better. Its slightly tiring pushing after a while but it serves the purpose of wheeling jess around and she absolutely loves it. (bit too much, she is not light)

    I was surprised when I was fitting my buggy board just how 'universal' they are. The have so many different ways of attaching and even attachment for awkward buggys. They will fit pretty much anything. :D

    Right here goes.....

    It doesn't need to fold too small, I can deal with one that's not umbrella fold. I'll be using it for a fair distance, at most two to three miles walk (that will be when DD or DS are at the childminder). Doesn't have to face me, not against 3 wheelers but would prefer 4, only against light coloured fabrics because of the mess!

    Cheers Lozzi :rotfl:


    Re the buggy board - are they easy to take off if I want to just use the buggy?

    Forgot to ask whats the budget?

    Also, is it to be brand new? or would you consider something off ebay but obviously something that was as new, or as near to new as you get without buying new ;)


    Just having a browse now..

    Look at this which i came across..



    http://www.biz-e-kids.co.uk/product_det ... 1&c=164&p={AD8CACEE-33F6-4011-B9C8-7A6074FA3389}


    How funky is that, and it folds flat to the pushchair when not in use!!!

    Budget is up to DH! :lol: It will have to be a 2nd hand one, I've no probs with that though.

    I quite like the look of that Silvercross pram one, seen a few on Ebay.

    I like it when the baby looks all snug and comfy, which only seems to happen when they've got a big generous seat and one of those lap bar drink things :lol:

    It was the 3d one that I liked, but if it's really bad to push when bubs is big then prob not the best one to go for. :?

    My Maclaren is fine, just DS doesn't look proper comfy in it if you know what I mean?
