Our family loves being outdoors, we walk every single day, so I love active things for Audrey! She is at a age where she doesn't need to be in the buggy much now, so if we have another baby, then this would be a perfect solution rather than upgrading to a double buggy! Your baby, or smaller child could sit in the buggy, whilst your older child scootered clipped onto the back for pushing! Genius!
Hollie Schultz of babygizmo.com gives her take on freerider as a stroller board and a child scooter.
"For those of you that don't know, the freerider is a terrific alternative to a wheeled board. It's a three-wheeled scooter that attaches to the back axel and allows your child to ride along, then pop the scooter off when they want to be a bit more independent." - Jamie Grayson, The Baby Guy NYC
Perhaps the real deal clincher here is, your free-standing stroller passenger won’t be quick to outgrow this stroller board. As a scooter, the Freerider grows with your child, with the handlebar adjusting to any height between 68cm and 90cm and can withstand up to 50kg.
"The end result, mum and kids very happy. The youngest seemed most impressed with the Urban Jungle (as was mum) and the toddler LOVED the Freerider. I had some reservations about how well it would steer and if I would have to walk like a sumo wrestler pushing the buggy, but I needn’t have been concerned."
"The freerider pops off and, with a flip of the wheel, becomes exactly what it looks like, a freewheeling scooter. And I can tell you that this is a very popular feature. Just knowing that it pops off and turns into a scooter, makes my 3 year old more willing to ride when I need him to, but actually using it as a scooter is his favorite thing to do right now... life with the freerider is so much more pleasant for us here."
