The Lascal BuggyBoard Maxi+

When I fell pregnant with baby #2, we knew Archie would be a few months away from 3 when the new baby arrived and the question we batted around more than any other was do we need a double buggy? Considering double buggy's are quite expensive and I can barely fit a single pram in my teeny tiny car, we decided to look for another option. The buggy board was high up on our list but we thought Archie might get tired on days out and we'd preferably like him to be able to sit if he needed to—enter the BuggyBoard Maxi+ by Lascal.

Archie was so excited about his buggy board and since day one he has absolutely loved the independence he gets from it. He's able to pull the seat up by himself so he chooses whether he wants to stand or sit and he loves being close to the baby (though I'm not sure the baby would say the same). He'll always asks for buggyboard! whenever we get the pushchair out.

On the other hand, we have had occasions where he simply won't sit still (toddlers, ey) and is on and off every 5 minutes, in which case it's handy to be able to use the chord included to pull the BuggyBoard up out of the way and attach it to the handle of the pram. It's really easy to clip on and off and tends to universally fit the majority of pushchairs (we've had no problems with our Cosatto Giggle 2). As Archie is close to 3 now, the BuggyBoard Maxi+ has been the most ideal form of toddler transport we've had; A is desperate to walk most of the time but still gets tired on long days out and he's able to hop on and off whenever he pleases.

The only downside we've found is that we'd occasionally like to be able to strap A in as there are times when he refuses to sit still but also won't listen to us if we allow him to walk, but considering the difference in price between a double buggy and the Lascal Maxi+, we really can't complain!
