Better than a buggy board, discover the sidecar stroller

If you’re on this page, you’ve just had or are about to have your second child !

Congratulations !

But you don’t want to invest in a second Stroller.

So you’re looking for an accessory that will allow you to walk your two children at the same time.

Just the thing, there are sidecars for Strollers that are perfect for both you and your older child.

Here’s a quick explanation of where and which sidecar to choose, depending on your needs and your stroller.

Top brands offering Side Cars for Strollers

OK, I’ll keep it short.

There are two brands that sell or used to sell sidecars for strollers in France.

  • The English brand Buggypod no longer sells its product in France, or you can find the brand’s remnants in baby shops.
  • And the Eichhorn brand, which still sells sidecars and strollers in France.

Here’s their flagship model just below.

The main strengths of the Eichhorn product ?

  • First and foremost, the sidecar is universal ! With its adaptable mount, it can be installed on all stroller frames (YOYO, Cybex, Pockit, etc.). The sidecar is even compatible with a double stroller.
  • Secondly, the buggy board is uniquely comfortable for parents, with its side-fastening system giving parents plenty of room to walk around (unlike other buggy boards).
  • It’s also super-comfortable for your child, because it comes with a harness and backrest so he can sleep. Plus there’s a steering wheel so they can have fun when you’re out and about.
  • And last but not least, it’s attractively priced, so you won’t need to invest in a second stroller.

Why opt for a stroller sidecar rather than a board ?

And yes, I can only advise you to get a sidecar for your eldest child to complement your touring.

Why is this ?

For him: He’ll be much more comfortable with a better seat. Boards are notoriously uncomfortable for children.

What’s more, they’ll be able to take a nap with it because they won’t have to hold on to it constantly like with a board.


The big drawback of the board is that it’s in front of the stroller’s handlebars, so you’re going to be hampered when it comes to riding because your child will literally be in front of your feet.

I actually own a universal buggy board and I can tell you that it’s very annoying to keep getting your feet stuck in it.

With a sidecar for a stroller, your older child will be on one side.

So you can walk without getting your feet caught in it.

But, by the way,
Who am I ?
