Help! Pushchair for 12mth & 2 yr old

Our youngest is coming up for 12 months and our eldest is 2.3 months.

I've had a Mountain Buggy (double), First Wheels (double), Jane Rider (single), Obaby Zezu, M&P Pipi and a cheapy stroller. Hoorah for ebay!

I'm now looking to "consolidate" and need a bit of help.

The toddler likes to walk but I would like the option of a buggy board or seat for when she's tired. It needs to be lightweight and easy to fold (but not necessarily fold up small). It will be mainly used about town and on holidays.

Online I've looked at the micralite, thinking with a buggy board or maybe a Joovy Caboose.

Anyone had these or got any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Micralite Twofold grin
I can NOT wait!!!!

The way the board simply flips out is fabulous. The fold is just like a normal Micralite from what I can see.

In contrast, the Joovy Caboose is good, but its also longer, and the fold is long although thats not an issue for you. It feels more like a trolley to push. It is a lot of fun though and does the job pretty well.

I know the Twofold looks fab but I need something now not in bloody June Micralite take note

What about a Quinny Zapp xtra with a buggy board? I like the idea DD2 could still be facing me.

Then maybe I could make do with the MB and wait til June......

oooooooohhhhh please dont try the Zapp Xtra with a buggy board. I can't imagine how tippy that could be.

I would look at maybe a Baby Jogger Versa or a Mutsy Evo or Igo, or an Oyster with board, or even an Oyster Max - just as a starting point for other suggestions!

Buggyboard on your rider?

Oyster with board.

Do you think you can do without a double at this point? A joovy gives you the option of board or seat. I have also had a graco ready to grow which is quite cool, ff seat at front, at rear either a fixed parent facing seat or bench and buggyboard. Very versatile but the downside is they are long. And awkward with toddler in front seat.
