View Full Version : Skateboard Pram Thingys
I laybyed the beema when i found out i was pregnant, thinking that i didnt need a pram with a toddler seat as i wouldnt go out that often alone with 2 kids. however.. now i realise this was a silly idea... i should have got one with a toddler seat.
so now i have picked up the pram as i would have lost $70 if i didnt.
i am thinking about those skateboard type things that toddlers stand on, does anyone use one of these? Do toddlers like to stand on them? are they a waste of money??
i would really appriciate any advice on these as i dont want to waste money ($150 or something from Babyco) if there arent any good.
I wanted to get the skateboard attachment but am unable to as my brand of pram (babyco) will not take it. Just check with Babyco or Baby Bunting before buying it (give them the brand of the pram). Some prams where the skateboard attaches are not strong enough.
Hope all goes well :)
i have a beema 3 wheeler from babyco and the valco skateboard thingy doesnt fit on it and there is no way u can make it fit :mad: luckily i bought mine off ebay so didnt pay full price
I had one of those skateboard thingys and my DD hated it. She had to arch her back in a weird possi to hold the pram handles. She also had trouble staying on when cornering. We only used it twice.
We have one which we used a lot when Bella was still too little to walk everywhere. It was great, went up and down curbs with ease, over bumpy terrain and if she was tired of standing, she sat on the edge of our basket (metal rimmed) and her feet were supported off the ground by it.
Take your pram into a baby shop and try one on it ... some prams have axles that will not take the ... also, using one my void your warrantee if your pram isn't designed to have one.
If yours does fit ... try eBay ... they are only used for a short time, so there are a lot of them for sale that are practically brand new and for less than half the original price.
The other alternative is that if you have a metal rimmed basket, you can get your older child to stand on that with their head poking up between the seat and the handle ... because Bella is such a light weight, we have also had her curl up in the basket for a sleep! She is still light enough at nearly 5 years old!
I have seen them in the stores, and have seen a couple being used. They sound like a great idea, and I will be one to give them a try (if I get the opportunity). I think anything is worth a go, I have seen women with twin prams to fit 2 children and they look so awkward (only from what I have witnessed).
My hubby is a top skateboarder, so he thinks they are great.
Thanks for all the replies..
i didnt think that they could go on the babyco prams but apparently when my mum picked up my pram they said that they sold them, so i will have to go down and check it out.
hmm.. still dont know what to do....think i will check out ebay if i do decide to buy one.
