We have a newborn and a 2 1/2 yo. The board is pretty and sturdy. The only problem is it restricts a lot the maneuvering of the stroller. Also,our kid's head keeps bumping on the stroller's handlebar... Besides this, I highly recommend it (it's a head-turner as well haha)
Hoped it would save us getting a double buggy

I bought this for my 2year old daughter so she could ride behind the urban jungle buggy so when our newborn arrived she would be happier to give up the seat to him. She enjoys the scooter but doesn't really want it attached and it is quite heavy and difficult to manoeuvre compare . Our free rider attachment is not easy to use (it may be faulty) and the scooter fell off once!
For its weight MtB should have made it suitable for an adult too.
The other design flaw is you can't lie the seat flat or have the handle on behind a carrycot so it's not suitable for a newborn and toddler after all.
Easy to use

Pros and cons

I was meaning to buy a scooter for my son, so it worked out that I could get this two in one. It is convenient that it can connect to many different types of strollers. The cons however are that it's hard to walk when the scooter is on the stroller; I sort of have to go on one side and push with one hand. Also, I can't recline the stroller seat when the scooter is attached.

Purchased to complete our Duet stroller for after baby #3. Just took it out today with all 3 kids (age 3.5, 21 months, and 1 month). Impressed with how well the stroller still steered with this on it. My 3.5 year old loved riding on it. I don't think I would want to use this on a single stroller because it's so long and you have the handle that comes up high, but it's great on the duet because there's a little extra room for me to walk to the side without tripping up on it. It will take a while for my daughter to learn to steer when riding it on it's own, but she loves it so far and feels like a "big kid".

Purchased a month ago. It's a really sturdy product. My son loves it, and it works well with our swift.

I bought this a month ago and have used it a couple of times. The kids enjoy it is but it does feel pretty cheap and the grip tape is coming up a bit already. There's no brake on it either
Handy but awkward

My 2 year old loves using the board, but it is pretty awkward to walk around. You need to walk to one side, and I don't find that overly easy as it's heavier with the two kids to push.
But thankfully it's really easy to pop on and off the connector, or fold up which is a big bonus.

Bought for my 3 year old as I wanted to stop using my bulky double buggy (not MB)..he loves having the independence of using the freerider as a scooter then when he gets tired he enjoys the 'free ride'! Using the freerider with my MB swift does affect the handling of the buggy. You also have to walk to the side, but on the whole was a great purchase. The novelty of the lights on the wheels was a winner with my son. Initially I was skeptical about the steering of the freerider as the handle doesn't turn, but the tilt/lean of the board is very intuitive and he picked it up quickly
Very good for my child

I purchased the new Freerider recently along with the Joey basket for my Mountain Buggy Duet as i don't have a car and i needed a pram that would be versatile enough to use with my 3 children to go to Kinder, shopping or to the park and be able to use on public transport and I CAN!! It's amazing i loved my Duet before but now its a travel machine! My daughters love the new Freerider both on the Duet and riding it around the park and the Joey basket has so much room for all my shopping and its so sturdy. I'm always getting glances (even from the mums and dads with the bugaboo donkey :-P) and people stopping me to check out the pram. All in all im VERY glad i purchased a Mountain Buggy, thank you Mountain Buggy for making such an awesome Pram with Fantastic accessories :-) !

I bought this to use with my 2.5 year old to give him a rest in long walks but it is awkward to push and I have to walk to the side of it, but on the up side it's a great scooter when not attached to the pram

I am a massive fan of Mountain Buggy so I am saddened to have to give this product such a poor review. The first free rider stroller board that arrived was damaged (plastic base cracked and grip tape on base scuffed), the replacement stroller board arrived and got damaged after our first outing! The grip tape ripped! Although the stroller board appears sturdy, the parts seem to be of poor quality. I am desperately hoping this product will last me at least a year! As it is designed for toddlers you would think that the product would be able to withstand some wear and tear. Negatives for me - heavy (as a scooter on its own so not as easy for toddler to manoeuvre), quite long so when attached to pram you need to walk slightly to the side to avoid kicking it as you walk, plastic on base not strong, poor quality grip tape, cannot lower pram to sleeping position when board in use. Positives - I like how it folds up and attaches to pram when not in use, light up wheels, easy to attach and use.
