Lascal mini or Bugaboo wheeled board on Bee+?

(10 Posts)

I just won an auction for a second hand bugaboo Bee+ and I'm looking for a buggy board for it. My youngest is 2 yo and the eldest i 3.5 yo and I guess they will be wanting to take turns riding the buggy/buggy board.

We walk quite a lot and I hope to find something that I'm not going to kick while walking... Currently, we are looking at the Lascal mini and the Bugaboo wheeled board (the one with the Bee+ wheel).

Does anyone have any experience with these two?

My worries are:

1. The wheel on the wheeled board seem to stick out a lot and being easy to kick. Is it really comfortable for the parent or do you get used to it?

2. The Lascal doesn't seem to have the problem of kicking the wheels, but my concern is - does it really fit smoothly on the buggy? Is it as good as the wheeled board (better?)? Or is Maxi even better?

3. I guess warranty is of no concern since the buggy will be second hand. Or does the warranty still apply even though I'm not the first owner? buggy is approximately 18 months old.

Or are there any other buggy boards worth considering out there?

Please help smile

I had the Lascal Mini and found it perfect really. It fitted well, wasn't too big or heavy or in my way, easy to go up/down kerbs. I didn't have anything else to compare it to but my DS was a heavy three year old when my DD was born and I used the buggy board for a good 6-9 months.

Thanks! How heavy was your 3yo? And why did you stop using the buggy board? Was it lack of interest from your child or was it the weight?

And did you kick the board? I can't find any pictures of this combination (Bee and Lascal mini)...

I couldn't tell you how heavy, but he was a solid little thing smile I only stopped using it as he lost interest, became better at scooting, and then I sold the Bee in the end.

I didn't find myself kicking it ever, I'm tall but therefore had the handlebar fully extended which probably helped. If you're shorter you might have the handlebar lower but a shorter stride to match, IYSWIM so I don't think it would be a problem.

I started off with a maxi board (because I already had it for a different buggy) then bought the bugaboo board. I prefer the bugaboo one.

I haven't noticed a problem with kicking the board but have been using buggies/boards for a living for 17years so have possibly adjusted the way I walk when pushing grin.

Once a week, I take a 3yr old to nursery with a 4 year old. One in the buggy, one on the board then they swap round halfway so that they both have a turn on the board!!

Why do you prefer it? Is it a smoother ride or something else?

The bugaboo one fits perfectly, is so easy to put on/take off, the adaptors are very neat on the chassis...whereas the Lascal ones used to stick out and have marked the frame.

The children seem to stand better on it aswell. On the Lascal, they used to want to stand on the raised sides or have one foot hanging over the edge but they stand perfectly on the bugaboo. No idea why, though confused

I like the bugaboo board on cameleon. It fits on and off in 2 secs, and so can store in basket when not in use. Having one wheel also means you can walk closer to pram as you can walk to one side of the one wheel. Which you cant do with lascal unless completely to the side

I'm not so sure how comfy it would be to push 3.5 on it though. We used ours from 15 months- 2.5years most days, but now with 3 1/2 year old it's v v rarely used ( only if raining as faster and can all shelter under one umbrella). I think it might be a bit heavy now to use a lot

We ended up buying the Bugaboo one and it is as expected - I kick the wheel as soon as I forget to think about it. But I love the Bee and walking slightly to the side is no problem. My kids have the same weight - 14 kgs and it still pushes like a dream smile They take turns in standing on the board/sitting in the buggy.

The only thing I'm a bit concerned about is the adapters for the wheel board. The other day one of them spontaneously fell off when I lowered the buggy board. Luckily I noticed it.

Thanks for all your help!!
