    Default Skateboards for prams

    I've got a baby and a 3 yr old. Sometimes the 3 yr old loves to 'ride' on the pram, but most of the time, he likes to be 'independent' and walk.

    I thought a pram skateboard would be a good idea for him.

    Are they safe?
    Do you have any recommendations for pram skateboards at all?

    Thank you!

    Hi Gello,

    We haven't done an indepth review of all the brands out there but have covered off a few as part of a review we did on a variety of double strollers and options. However I will suggest to our product testers that we do (it's a great idea : ) In the meantime here are some of the basic guidelines we have on these products.
    • Platforms clip or bolt to the rear of your stroller and give an older toddler a place to stand while you push the stroller. They can be good way to give a child a chance to rest when they’re tired of walking, or just a fun ride making outings more enjoyable.
    • The child must be old enough to stand steadily while holding onto the stroller frame; the Kid-Sit is claimed suitable for 1.5 – 4 year olds, while the Lascal and Valco are claimed suitable for two-year-olds and up. Check the maximum weight allowance too.
    • In the test, the Lascal and Valco are standing only, while the Kid-Sit (as its name suggests) also has a detachable padded seat so it can be used for either standing or sitting.
    • The platforms will fit a variety of strollers; some brands such as Lascal have a range of models with different attachment mechanisms. Check the platform will suit your stroller, and that your child will have room to comfortably stand and hang on when on it. In particular, make sure you can still access any foot-operated stroller brakes.
    • For longer trips, when your child is more likely to tire and need to sit down for a long period, a toddler seat or two-seat stroller is a better solution.
