Pushchair/buggy suggestions for very tall 2 year old?

My (almost) 2 year old is really tall, about 105cm. Because of his age I still need him in a pushchair but he is far too tall for the one we have.

He leans side to side and this nearly tips it over when I’m pushing him. He’s also started resting his feet on the wheels which makes it a nightmare to push. It look like I’ve strapped a 5 year old child into a buggy!

Does anyone know of a good pushchair/buggy that suits tall children?

I have joolz which he outgrew before he was 1! And a silver cross buggy I use currently but too small.

A baby jogger city mini GT for sure! Or a Phil and Teds. Both have very tall and deep seats suitable to age 6. The city mini has the super convenient folding system though.

Mountain Buggy. Or the Britax agile which is quite similar.

Neither will probably last you very long, but given he's the size of a 4yo, you are getting into SN buggy territory for anything larger. I'd look for a second hand one and expect to run it into the ground.

We love our Bugaboo Bee.

DS is 2 and around 100cm and still looks small in it

It has an extendable back and an extendable leg rest so it grows with them

Quite pricey new, but you can pick up a second hand bee3 for less than £100

Ooh no actually I think I was thinking of the Babyjogger, not the Moiuntain buggy!

Baby jogger City Mini. DTs were in the double until the were 4 (small and lazy, plus it was a great thing to cart all their stuff around in).

Otherwise you'll need to look at the McLaren SN buggies.

Yes definitely the city mini GT, and definitely not a Bee. The babyzen yoyo is also amazingly good for seat height, though not sure how it would be if toddler is wider.

We have an old out and about double running buggy that easily fits my tall 3 year old twins in. My 5 year old can also fit fairly comfortably too.

confused isn't the Bugaboo bee miniscule?? I thought that was the point of it!

We have a mountain buggy urban jungle. Large seat and is great for tall DC
