HI!

I'm needing some advice with the Bugaboo Donkey please...

I'm expecting bub no 3 in March and I'm thinking about getting the Donkey...

DS is 4, and DD will be 2.4 by the time bub3 is born.

DD still happily goes in the pram at this stage, and I'm hoping it stays this way.

DS doesn't go in the pram anymore obviously but he insists on riding his buggy board on the back of the pram everywhere we go...which makes life easier as his little legs get tired easily.

I have a Chameleon and a Phil and Teds Vibe which I love however DS wont be able to ride on his Buggy Board when the P&T is set up in newborn mode (when newbie is lying flat he/she will be too far back for DS to be able to stand on the board if you get me...)

I'm wanting to check if the Buggy board can comfortably go on the back of the donkey when I have it in  Duo mode...

Thanks in advance for any help!

If you had the Donkey permanently set up as a double there might be a way to put the buggy on, but because of the extending width, I think it might end up quite fiddly.

Yes you can, it is actually easier when used as a double as its sort of to the side so its easier to push (without feeling like your arms are going around the child.)

Thanks for the replies girls.

Next question: If I have it to the side heatherbell89, does it pull the pram to the side at all...if you get me?

Thanks  wink.gif

Iwonder if a freerider from Mountain buggy  would work on the P & T because it is longer?  You can buy adaptors for the P & T

You could get the Duo or Duet and use the freerider with it - cheaper than the Donkey

I love my duet. Wanted a donkey (although I never saw one so could have changed my mind) but i couldn't afford it.
