Buggy boards are a great investment when you don’t want to have a double pram. They are easy to use by simply attaching to the back of your pram (between the back wheels) and there are plenty of different styles of buggy boards available on the market to best suit your child’s needs.
Although many parents choose to purchase a double buggy, many soon realise that their older child doesn’t want to stay in the pram for long or may be too big and this is where the buggy board comes into play!
If you require a quick answer the best buggy board is the Lascal Maxi, which can be used from 2 to 6 years and has a universal design that is suitable for all types of prams and strollers. However, if you are purchasing to try and see if it works with your child or you just want a budget option, the My Child On Board might be the best choice for you.
To rate the buggy boards within this article, we based our recommendations on testing multiple boards that are universal, the latest research and several factors. Some of the factors that we considered included the age range, seat/stand options, quality of the construction, additional features and value for money.

Buggy boards are a great and safe way to get around with your child when a double buggy is not needed. They are practical and allow you to have a stress-free walk!
Below is a list of the best buggy boards, allowing you to have a safe and enjoyable journey with your children.
The Best Buggy Boards
1. Best Stand On Platform: Lascal Buggy Board Maxi
One of the most popular buggy board’s on the market is the Lascal BuggyBoard Maxi which has a patented easy-fit connection that allows the board to be used with most types of prams/strollers. One feature that we really like is the non-slip large surface and solid frame that ensures your child is safe at all times whilst riding on the board.
The Buggy board also features big wheels which allow for a smooth ride and ease of getting up and down kerbs. When I was testing this product, I was worried that the Maxi platform might be too big and make it difficult for me to walk and push the pram, however, this was not the case. Lascal has designed the board so it can be easily used to give you and your child all the space you need. I was able to push the pram with ease and not even notice that it was there!
In addition to the above, if you are not using the board but still want to take it out with you, it can simply be folded up on the back of your pram. This is done by clipping the hook onto the platform and attaching the strap to the highest point on your pram thus making it a very practical and easy solution without removing it every time it isn’t needed.
Lascal has designed the buggy board to be used from 2 to 6 years which makes it a practical all-round buggy board that will grow with your child, which of course, makes it a worthwhile investment.
2. Best Budget: My Child On Board Stroller Board
If you are looking for a buggy board that doesn’t come with a premium price tag then look no further than the My Child buggy board. It features an easy-to-attach clip and fold-away feature so you are still able to attach it with ease and when the board is not in use, you can neatly tuck it away into your pram.
The buggy board is universal and can be attached to the majority of prams/strollers on the market. It also features a 2-wheel suspension which makes the ride to be smooth and comfortable for your toddler.
To conclude, the My Child buggy board is a great alternative to the more expensive brands that are available. It does exactly what it should do and is great for parents who don’t want to spend on the pricier alternatives if they are unsure if their toddler will like the board.
3. Best Seated: TTLIFFE Portable Buggy Board With Seat
If you want a buggy board with a seat that doesn’t come with a premium price tag, the TTLIFFE brand has the answer. Their buggy board has been designed to come with the seat as standard and therefore there is no need to make additional purchases. The seat is great for children who get tired of standing and decide they want to sit down to rest their legs, but if they don’t want to sit down, the seat can be easily removed. If this is the case, the seat also features a hook that can be attached to the handle of the pram when it is not in use.
When I was testing this product with my toddler, he particularly liked the seat. He is 2 and standing for a long period of time for him can be quite difficult, so the sitting option was a great choice for us.
To conclude, the TTLIFFE seated buggy board is a great option for those who want a buggy board that comes with the seat as standard. There are three colours to choose from (wheels) which make it fun and appealing for your toddler. The buggy board also grows with your child and this is what makes it a worthwhile investment.
4. Best Comfort: HoldOneLight Buggy Board
If you are looking for the ultimate comfort buggy board, then look no further than the HoldOneLight buggy board with seat. It features a comfortable seat with a backrest and a soft grip handlebar, which was a winner for my toddler as he felt like he could control the pram!
This buggy board has a 2-in-1 feature which allows for standing and seating should your child need it. Its easy fold-away design is also great for when you are not using the board, making it very convenient.
Safety for your child is always at the forefront of any parent’s mind and with this buggy board they have covered all aspects. The brand has considered many factors when it comes to safety as the board has a non-slip surface for when they are standing and the seat has a buckle, giving you peace of mind.
Overall, the HoldOneLight option is a great choice if you are looking for the most comfortable buggy board. Whether your toddler wants to sit or stand, the brand has thought this through with the added backrest and handlebar, which provides your child with ultimate comfort when travelling around.
5. Best 2-in-1: Bumprider Sit Stroller Board
The Bumprider brand has taken parent and child into consideration with their design of the buggy board. It is a spacious board that can have the option for sitting or standing and no tools are needed for installation, making this a very easy and practical board to use. This is because the board features a ‘quick release’ for ease of putting it on and taking it off.
When walking out and about and your toddler decides they no longer want to ride on the buggy board, it can be easily hung up on your pram and out of the way.
To conclude, the Bumprider 2-in-1 buggy board is a great option for those who have a toddler who wants the best of both worlds. Its clever installation design is a winner amongst parents as it’s easy to attach when needed. Although it comes with a hefty price tag compared to others on the market, it’s a great investment that will grow with your child.
6. Best Compact: Lascal Buggy Board Mini
If you are looking for a compact buggy board then the Lascal Mini could be your answer. From the reputable brand, it features maximum comfort thanks to its intuitive suspension, even when going over bumps or up and down kerbs. It also has a quick-release button for installation and removal, making it easy for parents when they no longer need to use it.
In addition to the above, when the buggy board is not in use but you do not want to remove it, it has a nice and easy fold which then has a hook that attaches to the highest point of the pram.
For a compact buggy board, it has big durable wheels and a large enough platform so your child can stand comfortably whilst allowing the parent plenty of room to make it easy to walk behind.
To conclude, Lascal has designed a great compact buggy board that ticks all of the boxes. Although it does have a big price tag, it is definitely a worthwhile investment when it comes to getting out and about with your toddler.
How We Rated
As parents of two children, we understand the dilemma that can occur from deciding whether to purchase a double buggy or invest in buggy boards. Well after testing multiple buggy boards we were very pleased with the result and how well our eldest adjusted to buggy board life!
Over the last couple of months, we have tried and tested multiple buggy boards and found that there are so many different styles on the market and this then became so overwhelming, as I just wanted the best for our son. All have their benefits and features that make them a worthwhile investment and it is really down to personal preference.
As you can see in the photos below, we have tested multiple options on different types of prams/strollers so we can give our honest findings. An important feature to me was being able to stand and sit as my eldest is 2 and therefore gets tired very quickly. I personally really liked the Lascal brand and therefore I purchased the seat separately and was very pleased with the quality and comfort it had for my son.
After testing the Lascal buggy board, we also tested the Bumprider with and without the seat (as shown in the photos below)
During our testing, we look at the buggy boards’ build quality, usability, safety features, ease of putting it together as well as the different styles and looks.
