Buggy Boards, Trikes & Accessories to help parents during ‘Walk to School Week’

This week (20th-24th May) sees the return of Walk to School Week 2019 organised by Living Streets, a charity dedicated to getting the nation moving again. Only one generation ago (in other words us!), 70% of children were walking to school, now it’s less than 50%.

Lots of people don’t get enough exercise and something simple like walking your kids to school will give you and your children a little fitness boost to get your day going. Walking to school doesn’t cost anything and it gives you a good opportunity to chat to your child about their day, and what’s on their mind.

Research also shows that children who walk to school tend to arrive in a calmer frame of mind & in a better mood, ready to cope with the demands of the classroom or nursery.

Think of the environment, statistics show that around 20% of all rush hour traffic is down to people doing the school run. Walking to school means that there will be one less car on the road, which can only be a good thing for reducing congestion and pollution.

To raise awareness and help more children walk to school Direct4Baby have teamed up with Lascal and Cheeky Rascals to giveaway a Special Edition Maxi Buggy Board. The perfect accessory for growing families. Head over to our Facebook and Instagram pages to enter.

Let’s take a look at some of our most popular buggy boards and accessories to help get your family moving.

Lascal Buggy Board

The Lascal Buggy Board fits on to over 99% of pushchairs, prams and strollers so that toddlers and young children can ride on the back of the buggy when they get tired. Ideal for the school, pre-school or nursery run, as well as days out. The clever design is available in a Mini or Maxi size and there is even a saddle seat with the Maxi Plus so your child is able to take a seat after a long day. This is a fantastic value product with prices starting from £44.99

Easy X4 Universal 4 Wheeled Buggy Board

If you have 2 children close in age but don’t want the hassle of a tandem or double pushchair then the Easy X4 Universal 4 Wheeled Buggy Board could be the option for you. The mini seat is padded for extra comfort and the mini steering wheel keeps little hands busy as they hold on.

It includes safety flashing lights on the back wheels for additional safety. Plus the telescopic arms to fit the majority of pushchairs.
