Is your stroller your home-away-from-home? Your shopping cart? Your primary mode of exercise?
Here are 13 stroller accessories that you might not realize you need/want:
1. Baby Buddy Secure-A-Toy
These tether straps snap on anywhere you need them — stroller, car seat, high chair, etc.
2. Buggyguard Retractable Stroller Lock
Need to keep your stroller unaccessible to thieves and hooligans? This stroller lock is perfect for those who leave their strollers outside of restaurants or nursery school, as well as frequent travelers.
Tired of a draped blanket falling during your baby’s on-the-go nap? Wish you could block out more of the glaring sun? The SnoozeShade (made of breathable fabric) blocks out 94% of the sun (and provides UPF 50 protection) for a dark and cozy daytime nap.
4. Child Tray
You love your Bugaboo — you really do — but you could really use a snack/activity tray for your frequent on-the-go strolls. Right?
5. Stroll By Petunia Pickle Bottom
This luxurious stroller bunting bag is lined with super soft chenille in a pretty PPB-fabric pattern. (Designed to fit MOST strollers and can be used until around your baby’s first birthday or 30″.)
6. Jumbo Swirly Hook
If you use your stroller as your main shopping cart, you’ll need somewhere to hang your shopping bags. (Note: not for light umbrella strollers, which could tip the back of the stroller.) This extra-wide aluminum hook attaches with velcro to any stroller, and is designed to hold multiple bags.
7. Ankle Weights
But if you ARE worried about your lightweight stroller tipping over from shopping bags on the back, just add some ankle weights to the front! We saw this brilliant (BRILLIANT!) tip over at Parent Hacks a few years back.
8. Soft Buggy Cup
This soft cup holder (that easily attaches to most strollers) is perfect for holding your Starbucks, your keys or some snacks. You can even drawstring the top closed, if you need. And because it’s made from soft materials, you don’t have to remove it when you collapse the stroller.
9. X-Large Stroller Hook Set
Too many things to carry during a day out with the kids? This hook set allows multiple bags to hang while you continue with your day.
10. Deluxe Stroller Organizer
Need some extra storage for drinks, snacks, cell phones and keys? This attachable storage organizer fits pretty much all strollers and is affordable to boot.
Have the older kids follow along in a scooter, giving them the option to either walk or ride without a bulky double stroller.
One of Maclaren’s most recent accessory additions is this attachable extra-large sunshade, providing UPF 50 protection for up to 99% of UVA and UVB rays. It attaches to all Maclaren strollers and most umbrella strollers (that have a hood), so you don’t have to go buy a new stroller just because of an inadequate shade.
