Buggy boards for older child.

Has anyone used a buggy board on an older/heavier child? I have a mamas and papas Joolz day (quite weighty) and need a buggy board for a nearly five year old who is over 15kg for occasional use (when he gets tired). Hubby says buggy board wouldn't be any good due to his weight. I am also debating whether to get a Joovy or Chipolino but still working on hubby with this one.

I have been looking into Bibi Strolli's on ebay as nowhere seems to sell them anymore but unsure now if they are safe, maybe that's why they don't sell them anymore. Any ideas?

Has anyone heard or tried the Chipolino Euphoria?

Just weighed lo, he is 20kg. Poor love gets tired easily due to a heart condition.

Decided Joovy Caboose ultralight it the best option for me. On order.

hi again, they are good and when it is just you and your youngest they can sit at the back and talk to you, the parent organiser that you can buy that go's onto the handle is really good and get a hook so you can hang bags off the handle because the handle is upright it takes loads of weight

Thanks pramsgalore. I will miss my swanky pram but like hubby has said it isn't doing it's job. I just think am I doing the right thing pushing an older child around but at the end of the day he has a disability and can't be good for him if I push him to walk everywhere.
Thanks for your help prams, your review really did help me decided. I think it comes with the organiser and will look into the clips.

Jovvys look great. I bid on one this weekend but the reserve was too high. Just to add the Strollirider has stopped production because apparently the maker invented it for his own child. But it's apparently not what they normally do as a company and thus have decided to stop producing them. I hope someone picks the design idea up and modifies it a bit ie higher child handles because they seem to get good reviews.

Thanks Guildfordnanny.
Ah that explains it then. I did find a company that sells then in Australia though and ship to UK but I my little boy with asd would not feel secure on one, so not an option for us. I'm sure I read though that the handles and foot rest can be altered.

i push my 5 year old around he has asd, i get the looks but i now don't care what they think, i know he's safer in a pushchair and i'm his mum so i know best!!!! good luck with your new joovy you won't regret it
