Single to Tandem Stroller Conversions
The Buggypod by Revelo converts your solo stroller to a tandem system, allowing an older child to tag along. It’s a sidecar! Who wouldn’t want to ride in a sidecar?
Your second child sits in a clip-on seat supported by a single wheel, with the whole thing attached to an aluminum tubular frame. The Buggypod folds flat against your stroller with one click when not in use. It is intended for parents with a second, walking child who occasionally gets tired.
The seat adds 15.3 inches to your stroller’s width and supports up to 33 lbs.
Unfortunately, Buggypod is only sold in Europe. Revalo states the Buggypod fits “most” strollers, including jogging and tandem strollers, via universal attachment brackets. Not surprisingly, its customer-submitted product photos don’t show it working with any strollers sold in the U.S.
If I had a second child, I’d simply buy a tandem stroller and deal with occasionally pushing a half-empty stroller.
A few additional tandemizing products are listed below.
Stroller Connector by Prince Lionheart is a molded piece of plastic which snaps two umbrella strollers into one double-wide tandem stroller. See a list of retailers on Froogle.
The following “buggy boards” are platforms for a second child to stand on:
