Hi, can anyone recommend a buggy with a harness that fastens, or specifically UNfastens without too much effort?

Both sets of grandparents struggle to open the plastic catches on bouncy chairs etc. Would like it to be as lightweight as possible too but the buckle is really the most important thing.

There seems to be a gap in the market for baby stuff designed for older folk who are less dexterous than they once were!

The Baby Jogger City Mini and GT buckles are pretty easy to unfasten - in fact its probably a minor niggle with me because I often catch one side and unpop it as I am doing the other side up.

Thanks Tiggywunkle, I went to Mothercare yesterday to try and see one in the flesh but they didn't have any, I'll have to find a local stockist.
I asked in Mothercare, and the assistant advised that she thought the Maclaran strollers had the easiest to fasten and unfasten harnesses, but I tried myself and I thought they were a bit stiff for someone like me - who has no issues with strength!!

No not a maclaren! Mine is v stiff, MIL struggles with it and she is very capable with most things.

The uppababy vista harness is easy, you just push a button in the middle. The rest of the uppababies might be worth checking if you wanted something more stroller like. e.g. cruz/g-lux.

Maclaren definitely the hardest I've tried. Sounds like she was trying to sell you a maclaren because that's what she had in stock. I used to break nails on the buckle all the time
