We had one of these ones:

But my plates of meat kept on kicking it so we switched to one of these:

There's a bit more room there. But any buggy board involves the pusher having to adopt an awkward posture. If your buggy handles extend then this helps.

There are plenty of the older versions of the second buggy board around which are cheaper and does what it says on the tin.

Forgot to mention that the plastic hook/tab that you use to secure the board in the up position is useless. I drilled a hole and used a karabiner to hold it.

Thanks for your reply

I have two different buggy boards one for each buggy ...
I have this one but the original design.

The main problem is when you are walking the bit the kid stands on is not very high and consequently you keep kicking your toes off it. I have had a look at the new design and I think the same problem would apply. It is non bulky so good for travelling and clicks on and off the buggy easily for getting in and out of the car.

This is the second type I have. I have it fitted to a buggy with long handles so there is alot of space between the back of the buggy and where I walk. I think if the buggy did not have long handles it would be a pain and you would be walking with your arms over stretched. I like it better than the first for going long distances as it is higher off the ground and my toes don't kick off it. That said it is a pain in the ass to dismantle and therefore to take in the car. It is also a pain in the butt if you have to reverse as it kinda gets tangled up on itself.

Another but more expensive alternative:

The best I guess depends on how long the handles of your buggy are. I think the sit and go one might be pretty unusable if the handles are not long?

Buggy boards are definitely worthwhile for short distances but personally I wish I had bit the bullet and bought a double buggy. Especially since my three year old can't just stand on the damn thing but feels the necessity to do stunts on it.

What is a karabiner??? Been trying to stop that damn thing whacking down on my feet since I got it.

Karabiner/Carabiner:

Like this, except I used a cheap one that cost £1. I drilled a hole into the actual plastic of the board and attached the carabiner to the strap that is supplied with the buggy board. Now it never falls down unless I unhook it.

Looks likes men's stuff ... I show to husband :-D
