Bugaboo Wheeled Board
Child loves it, but have to walk at the side, so a bit irksome.
I have to agree with one of the previous reviews about kicking the board all the time. I am 6'4, so I generally have to go through my life accepting discomfort with this type of thing. However, my 5'4 wife finds she has the exact same problem. It may just be the Bee plus that is effected, but it just seems the board is too long for the distance behind the main seat. We will keep it however as it's still very useful. 3 stars though. Good fun for toddler, very we'll made, but ultimately uncomfortable in use. Shame.

We have a 10 week old baby and a 26 month old. He generally quite likes the buggy board and looks forward to standing on it and "helping" us push the pram. From a practical point of view, there are a view minor annoyances with this product. Firstly, you have to walk to the side of the pram when pushing it with the buggy board attached or you keep banging your toes! Secondly, the board can't be folded up for storage so you have to detach it when not in use. This is very easy to do and shouldn't put you off buying the board. Overall, pleased with the product and it does make life a little easier when out and about.

Makes getting out and about much easier
Having a newborn and a three year old makes going out on foot for long distances very difficult. This allows you to use your existing chair and move at a good speed (be carefully not to hit any big bumps when the rider is not holding on :( ). Being slimmer and the same price as the generic ones this is a must.

LOVE IT: Life saver for mum with twins & a baby!!
I couldn't disagree more with previous review this is a brilliant piece of engineering especially if you own the Bugaboo Donkey (twin buggy). I have twins & a 14 wk old baby so couldn't get out of the house until now. I ordered a triple buggy elsewhere and couldn't even lift it out of the box so the only other option was try the buggy board. My twins are only 22months so it was a gamble but with a little coaxing to actually climb on my little boy twin loves it! My daughter twin won't get it on it yet but we've only had it a day! As the donkey is larger I don't kick the board at all as I walk next to it (spent all day out to really test it) I just pull the push bar down so my son can hold on and wow I can actually get out of the house again! Thank you bugaboo! It's a very sturdy board don't go for another brand if you have the bugaboo it's well worth the money & remember if you have the donkey you need to buy the adaptors also available at John lewis online. Got it all next day on click & collect at Waitrose so thank you John Lewis too I couldn't be happier!

I bought this as I have the bugaboo bee plus and thought made sense to go with matching buggy board. Unfortunately I have to return it straight away as I can't walk behind it. I'm 5ft 7", so not that tall but found that I kicked the wheel all the time. The only way I could walk behind it was to the side and I would worry what that would do to my back after some time. I'm surprised all the other reviews give it such a high rating as when you read them they all admit that you have to walk a little oddly behind it, to me that's a big fail for sone thing you need to walk behind everyday. Actually surprised Bugaboo continue to manufacture this.

Perfect for siblings
I love this board. It fixes on and off the pram with ease. Its stable and quiet whilst pushing the pram and my daughter loves standing on it. As it only has 1 wheel at the back, it will push over most obsticles. Only thing i cant do is go backwards off a step as it drops down. But otherwise perfect for what i needed it for. Extend the handle of the pram when baby is newborn.

Yes, you do have to walk off to one side, but it hasn't slowed me down one bit and yes you have to extend your handle bar right up so your toddler can stand comfortably underneath without having to bend too much, but that's fine. I went a whole week between arrival of number two baby and purchase of buggy board as I was 'ummimg and ahhhing' about the relatively high cost of a simple piece of plastic... Don't hesitate like I did, this is a brilliant piece of kit, our (fussy) little boy loved it immediately and as a family without a car (I do huge amounts of walking), this made my life 100% easier immediately.

Best accessory ever
My son loves this , he doesn't want to go back in the pram so this is ideal when you need to get somewhere quickly. Looks great and really showcases the donkey pram
Thanks John Lewis
