Accessories for protection against the elements

universal parasol for stroller

A list of accessories for your Stroller to cope with the vagaries of winter and summer.

Rain cover for Strollers

A must-have for every winter.

The anti-UV parasol

Make the most of the sunny weather with a universal parasol for your Stroller, which is essential for protecting your baby from the sun’s rays.

Sun shade cover and awning for Stroller

Bigger than a parasol, but you can’t adjust the sun shade cover to suit the direction of the sun as you can with a parasol.

Mosquito net

It’s often forgotten, but this accessory can be very useful when you’re travelling or in regions where mosquitoes are very prevalent.

The umbrella / umbrella stand

There is no umbrella as an accessory, but you can use this accessory to install the umbrella you use for yourself.

Storage travel bag cover

For parents wishing to store their Stroller outside, I recommend protecting it with a cover.

Stroller skis

Indispensable for your holidays in the snow, but also for taking your Stroller to the beach, as it can easily move through the sand without the wheels locking.

Baby comfort accessories

universal accessories for comfort stroller

Let’s continue with our list of universal accessories to keep your baby comfortable during your long walks. Here we’re going to focus on keeping your baby happy in his Stroller in both winter and summer.

The leg rest

During your many walks, I can guarantee that your child will be fed up of letting his legs dangle. It’s a big plus in terms of everyday comfort, and very useful if your child wants to settle into the stroller on his own without you having to carry him.

The universal footmuff

A must-have for winter and spring outings. The universal footmuff will keep your baby nice and warm.

Leg cover and windbreaker

When you’re out and about, you’re on the move, but your baby in his stroller remains static and is not protected from the wind.

Belt cover

Some Stroller models don’t have a cover to make the harness straps more comfortable for your child. As with long car journeys, the belt can start to irritate you, especially in summer when your clothes cover less of your body.

The stroller cushion

This is a very useful accessory, not only for positioning baby better in the Stroller, but also for making him more comfortable.

The cover for stroller

Different from the footmuff and the new born footmuff, the blanket will be perfect for protecting baby’s legs and body when it starts to get cold. Like a blanket, it can be placed over your baby.

The cooling mattress

A little-known stroller accessory that can save you from the summer heat. Your baby will thank you ;).


The ultimate in winter comfort for your baby. You won’t find a better accessory for keeping baby warm on your walks.

The new born footmuff

Smaller than a footmuff, but just as practical. The big advantage is that you can use this accessory for both your stroller and your car seat, to keep baby warm. This is not the case for a footmuff, which can only be fitted to a stroller.

Cervical cushion and neck support

Imagine your baby sleeping upside down for hours on end… And don’t forget your baby’s cervical vertebrae, which will appreciate being supported by a neck support.

Portable fans

One last little accessory that’s both practical and fun for baby. With it, your summer walks will be a success. I can’t recommend it highly enough. A bit of fresh air for baby when there’s no air around you.

Comfort accessories for parents

universal stroller storage accessories

Once you’ve looked at the comfort accessories for your baby, you also need to think about how to make your outings even more enjoyable. You’re the one pushing the stroller, so don’t forget about yourself.

Leather handlebar travel bag cover

Your hands will thank you ;). What’s more, a leather handlebar absorbs perspiration, prevents bacteria from spreading and protects your handlebars.

Stroller gloves and mittens

Your best ally for winter. HOP, gloves integrated into a stroller, now that’s a great invention. There are even versions where you can insert your phone into the mittens for the stroller.

The automatic stroller rocker

One of my favourite everyday accessories. An automatic stroller rocker ! These little automatic rockers will create vibrations that mimic the normal rocking of a stroller.

Baby will think: “Great, now we’re on the move and Mummy and Daddy are next door, I’ll be able to go back to sleep”.

The portable rocker

An even better everyday ally when you’re out and about if baby doesn’t want to sleep. A portable rocker that will remind him of his mobile in his bed with little tunes. A calm, sleepy baby is the promise of a successful outing.

Stroller phone holder

Choose this phone holder for Stroller to keep your hands free while staying safely connected with your baby and your phone within sight when out and about.

The stroller cup

“Thirsty mummy”, you can already hear this phrase in your head. With a stroller cup, baby can either be independent and take his drink on his own, or you can give it to him quickly and avoid the drama of you taking too long to look for the water.

The handlebar extender

For big mums and dads who break their backs because their strollers are too small and the handlebars aren’t high enough. This is the accessory for you ;). With this, your back will thank you.

Transport and storage accessories

Universal accessories to make the most of your Stroller on the move. Because there’s never enough room in your buggy.

Stroller tray

A very useful accessory for carrying baby’s toys and bottle of water, and also for feeding baby during your break. You’ll need to install a support and protection bar beforehand.

Stroller hooks

A must-have, because we always need to attach bags or other items to the Stroller. The numerous storage compartments are quickly filled, but not with extra hooks.

Organisers and storage bags

A bag that attaches to your handlebars so you can get the accessory your child needs in a flash.

Racing net

As well as having more storage space, the big advantage is that you can see directly where the items you need are without having to rummage through a bag.

Stroller stocking basket

Some strollers don’t have a basket at the bottom to store useful items when you’re out and about. Fortunately, you can always add an extra one ;).

Universal safety accessories

universal accessories for safety stroller

The protection bar bumper

It’s a must-have, because it will protect baby as well as allowing him to use it as an armrest or hand-rest. One of my favourite accessories and the one I see most often installed on strollers.

The harness securer

A moment’s inattention and baby removes the straps from his harness and starts to fall out of the stroller… But not with a safety clip that will prevent him from removing his straps. You can also use it in the car on the car seat.

The anti-lost bracelet

Yes, it does exist :). At first I was sceptical but in fact this accessory is very practical when baby wants to get out of his stroller to walk. With this accessory, I can guarantee that you’ll be much more relaxed. It will also save you the hassle of having to post a wanted ad at car boot sales ^^.

The strap for Stroller

A must for me, because if you forget to activate the brake, at least the stroller is held by your hand. The one on my YOYO has saved me more than once. Thank you for your help.

Stroller locks

Also for the safety of your stroller, a stroller lock is essential if you leave your stroller unsecured. I recommend the U-shaped models from Kryptonite, for which I have written an article in more detail.

Anti-theft alarm for Strollers

With this accessory, no-one will get near your Stroller. One click activates the alarm installed on the Stroller, and as soon as a thief handles your stroller too much, an alarm sounds just like for a car.

Accessories for managing a second child with your Stroller :

Two YOYO Babyzen strollers attached with an adapter

You’ve got a stroller and you’re expecting a second child. But how can you get organised now ?

Here are all the ways you can enjoy your stroller outings with your two children.

Example above with a connector to link two Strollers

The buggy board for strollers

The best-selling accessory when it comes to transporting both your older child and your newborn. A universal buggy board that fits onto the back of the stroller, allowing your older child to sit on it when the ride starts to get long.

Additional seat for Stroller

A cross between a buggy board and a sidecar, this extra seat will provide great comfort for your little one.

The sidecar for Strollers

Yes, you’re not dreaming, there are sidecars for Strollers and they’re universal too !
The advantage is that they won’t get in the way when you’re out and about, because like a sidecar for a car, it’s on the side and not in front of your feet

The connector for connecting two Strollers

If, like me, you want to have one stroller for each child, then I can only recommend a connector that will link your two strollers horizontally.

Early-learning games for the Stroller :

universal games for Stroller

And yes, don’t forget to keep baby entertained on your walks. Because in the first few months, he’ll be strapped into the stroller harness for the whole ride. So these accessories are there to help you stimulate him ;).

Stroller play arch

The ideal accessory for “just like at home”. The hoop or arch attaches to the canopy or protective bar of the Stroller 😉

Stroller steering wheel

Another fun and playful accessory for baby. I can guarantee that he’ll be asking you to go out more often to enjoy his beautiful steering wheel with his stroller.

Plush for Strollers

Yes, because a cuddly toy helps to calm baby and make him happier. It’s even better when it’s attached, so it doesn’t fall out every 5 minutes.
