What are buggy boards? They are an attachment that you can add to your buggy that allows you to ferry two kids around. The younger one sits in the buggy and the older one can stand on the board instead of walking. Heres one in action:
Does this do any damage to your buggy or stroller?
No, not if installed correctly they shouldnt cause any damage to your buggy. They simply clip to your buggy, you dont need to make any permanent alterations to the buggy itself.
Will the buggy board make my pram harder to push?
In a word, yes! The buggy will be heavier, especially with another child stood on it so why bother? Simply because pushing a heavier buggy is far better than having a tired child whining about how their feet hurt, and its to hard to walk etc etc.
Where can I get one?
Amazon have loads of them, do a search!

The baby jogger clips onto the axle of your buggy and has a nice anti-slip surface for the child to stand on. Well made and reasonably cheap makes the baby jogger a great buy. Another fantastic feature is that it just folds away when its not in use. Its superb.
The oyster is a great addition to your pushchair and it simply unclips and can be put away when not in use. The oyster looks a little slicker than the others but feels slightly less sturdy and seems to be a little less easy to stand on.
Some mums say that their buggy board is the best purchase they ever made.
