If you have two (or more) kids, but don’t want to purchase a double stroller to accommodate them both, it’s time to consider a stroller board.

Also known as buggy boards, gliders and ride-on boards, stroller boards look a bit like a skateboard or scooter, with a flat wooden or plastic surface on wheels. The board attaches right to your existing stroller to create a streamlined, comfortable and safe tag-along tool for your tot. Many also work with double strollers, so if you already have one, you can accommodate three kids with one stroller!

When shopping for your stroller board, keep in mind that some brands offer universal connectors that allow them to be attached to any stroller, while others are made just to work with a particular type or brand of stroller. Also consider that each board will have its own specifications when it comes to age or weight—important to note for safety and functionality.

Ready for a stroller board? Here are eight solid bets that will have your kiddos on the go in no time.

Best Universal Stroller Board

Compatible with more than 99 percent of strollers, the BuggyBoard Maxi is a sturdy, three-wheeled plastic ride-on stroller board that holds kids from ages two to five, and up to 66 pounds. Its universal adapter allows it to be attached quickly, easily and securely, and removed just as simply for use with additional strollers (with additional connectors). And when it’s not in use, the board can retract via a strap that will keep it stashed and secure. (The BuggyBoard Mini offers the same streamlined functionality—up to 66 lbs, too!—for most lightweight or umbrella strollers.)

Best Two-in-One Stroller Board

Mountain Buggy is known for sturdy, hyper-functional strollers, meant for families on the go. So it’s no surprise that their version of the stroller board is solid, streamlined and super easy to attach and use. What is surprising? The Mountain Buggy Freerider stroller board also works as a freestanding scooter, complete with rear brakes and light-up wheels, for your toddler—offering double the functionality with just a literal flip of the wheel. Plus, it’ll hold kids up to 110 lbs, which means this stroller board-turned-scooter is in it for the long haul.

Best Stroller Board for a Higher Ride

A universal stroller board that’s compatible with about 99 percent of strollers on the market, the Hitch is easy to install with the included connector. Meant for kids from ages two to five and up to 62 lbs, the guzzie+Guss offers a higher placement for your tot, which has grateful parents noting that they don’t kick the board as they’re pushing the stroller.

The UppaBaby Stroller Board

Sleekly designed out of wood and plastic, the Uppababy Vista Piggyback Board—meant for use specifically with the Uppababy Vista stroller from 2015 or later—is an easy-on stroller board that attaches quickly. Meant for tots up to 55 lbs, it also lifts away when not in use, and folds with the stroller, to make your life on the go as streamlined and simple as possible. (If you own the Cruz, another popular UppaBaby stroller, there’s a piggyback board for that model, too.)

The Baby Jogger Stroller Board

If you’re a Baby Jogger fan, this is the stroller board for you! Meant to hold children up to 45 lbs, the Baby Jogger Glider is compatible with the City Mini 2, City Mini GT2, City Select and City Select Lux. Made of plastic with an easy-on connector that attaches to the rear axle of the stroller, it’s lightweight and flips out of the way when not in use.

The Mockingbird Stroller Board

Though still relatively up-and-coming in the stroller market, Mockingbird 2.0 strollers have a reputation for being sleek and versatile yet affordable. So it should come as no surprise that the Mockingbird Riding Board attachment is similarly stylish and is one of the most versatile and affordable stroller boards around. It holds kids up to 55 lbs, attaches and detaches from the stroller with just one click (or flips up out of the way) and offers two different travel options—the standing board or removeable saddle-style seating. But our favorite part: it stays slightly off to the side rather than directly in the middle, so you’re a lot less likely to kick it while walking, and kiddo rides next to you rather than right in front of you. The bad news: it’s only compatible with Mockingbird strollers.

The Bumbleride Stroller Board

Made of eco-friendly wood with plastic wheels, and compatible with the Bumbleride Indie and the Indie Twin strollers, this skateboard-style rider clamps on easily to the rear axle of the stroller and offers a wide, sturdy and slip-resistant platform for your child, supporting kids up to 44 lbs. When it’s not in use, it’s easy to remove and stash away, but you can’t fold your stroller with it attached.

The Joovy Sit-and-Stand Stroller

If the idea of a stroller board makes you a bit uneasy, then the Joovy Caboose sit-and-stand stroller is a great option. It’s a compact but full-featured stroller that offers all-wheel suspension, a deep recline, ample storage and a built-in stroller board, so your child can be towed with no attachments necessary. The stroller seat and board each support up to 45 lbs, and the stroller is compatible with many car seats! Add on the rear seat option to transform the board into a proper seat for your tot, too.
