Universal Stroller Board Attachment for Toddlers | 2015 Reviews

Updated on April 27, 2015

Finding the Best Toddler Stroller Board

Stand Only and Sit and Stand Stroller Board Attachments

Stroller boards are a solution that works well to extend the use of your current stroller when you have a toddler, as well as a baby. As your older child grows, he will want more independence, and may not want to be in a stroller full time and a double stroller may be more than you need.

If you already have a stroller, you are happy with, then a stroller board might be just the solution for you and your needs.

This attachment lets your toddler have the freedom to either walk next to you or take a ride when her little legs get tired. You can have either a plain stand on board or you can choose a sit and stand stroller attachment if you know your toddler would prefer the option to take sit when she needs a rest.

These options usually work out cheaper than getting a full blown sit and stand stroller, so if you are on a budget they should work well.

What to look for when buying stroller boards

  • Fit:
    Whichever stroller board you buy, make sure it fits your stroller. Read the reviews, often they will give you which strollers that are compatible or which are not. In general apart from the brand-specific platforms, most of the stroller boards reviewed here are universal.

  • Durability:
    Make sure the material used is durable, can take the weight of your child and the design can handle the terrain you usually ride on.

  • Stable:
    When fitted you will need the balance to be centered, the last thing you want is for your attachment to cause your stroller to tip over.

Best Rated Universal Toddler Stroller Board

Valco Baby Hitch Hiker Ride on Board

Valco Baby Hitch Hiker Ride On Board, Black

The Valco Baby Hitch Hiker Ride On Board is probably the best-rated toddler stroller board that you can find. It is easy to attach onto a stroller by hitching it to the rear end of most strollers and can adjust to suit the way you like it.

The board itself is a sturdy build as is the connection to your stroller, so it is safe and will not inadvertently get detached. And best of all the board is comfortable for your child to stand on and will be an added source of fun on your walking trips, be they in the park a mall or anywhere else.

Though this is a universal stroller board and is made to fit most strollers and double strollers, it does not seem to fit the Bob single strollers. So if you have a Bob stroller, you should check the Englacha Plastic Board Rider below.

Special Standing Platform for the UPPAbaby Stroller

The UPPAbaby PiggyBack Ride Along Board is made primarily to fit UPPAbaby Vista strollers. It is easy to attach, and has a unique tether that you can use to hang it when detached.

Also because it is made especially for the Vista, UPPAbaby constructed it so that you do not need to disconnect the platform when folding up the stroller.

It looks very classy with its natural, wooden material, and the non-skid surface prevents your little one slipping when riding on the step up.

If you have a UPPAbaby CRUZ, the UPPAbaby CRUZ PiggyBack Ride-Along Board is made particularly for that model.

Platform Attachment for the Bugaboo Stroller

Bugaboo Stroller Wheel Board

Bugaboo Stroller Wheel Board

The Bugaboo Stroller Wheel Board is made specifically to fit the Bugaboo Stroller. This wheeled platform for a stroller is unique in that it has just one wheel instead of the more usual two-wheeled stroller platform.

It attaches to your stroller in seconds and comes with a full, roomy flat surface that will provide your child with a safe and comfortable ride wherever you go.

One complaint is that while it works well it does get in the way of your stride behind the stroller. Some people seem to find this more uncomfortable than others. The kids love it, but I think someone who is on the short side may find it more difficult than a taller person to stretch to the handlebars.

This board works with the Bugaboo Frog, Bugaboo Donkey, Bugaboo Cameleon, and Bugaboo Bee strollers.
