Parent Facing Pushchair with Footrest???

I have a Bugaboo Bee which I LOVE but my DD is 2 years old now and her legs hang off the front of the buggy by a long way. The problem being there is no foot rest when the seat is facing the parent. I've tried having her outward facing but she isn't used to this and spends her whole time trying to talk to me. I can't hear what she is saying!

Does anyone know of a parent facing buggy which has a foot rest when in the parent facing position? As my DD is 2 I'm not looking to spend too much cash.

Thanks in advance.

Loola/Loola Up does. I would go for the Loola Up out of the two. They are reduced in a lot of places because the branding is being changed to Maxi Cosi. Or they are on ebay second hand As a bonus if you are planning on another baby, it takes a buggy board very well and lies flat parent-facing for newborns. (Also has compatible carrycot and carseat)

However it's heavier to push than the Bee and quite heavy when folded so if you use public transport and have to fold it regularly, or live in a flat (ie stairs) etc I wouldn't reccommend it. It's fairly easy to steer and push though, I live on a huge hill and we manage!

Its one of my bugbears with the Bee, in fact most rear facers. Manufacturers assume you will turn forward at some point and just havn'y cottoned on that some people DONT want to use puschairs forward facing

Its such a shame on the Bee as it has a lovely foot rest
