We currently use a very basic stroller for Ella but it's just not cutting it! Her legs are too long so touch the ground  and the foot rest is in a weird spot.

We need one that will fit her - 111cm height and her 20+kg weight, and also support bags hanging off it!

It's used to get us to and from the hospital, hence overnight bags hang on it, as Ella is often too unwell or energy depleted to walk.

Anyone have any suggestions? Happy to buy second hand too.

Her weight is going to be an issue with a stroller, she's going to be too heavy for most of them.
This one might fit the bill, it's got a high weight limit and my almost 4 year old still has plenty of head room to go.

I've seen a couple of Mountain Buggies sporting older children in my shopping centre and also maybe Phil and Teds are ok.

Not really a stroller but we have a MB Urban Jungle for our 18kg tall toddler. He is very comfy in it. You can pick up decent second hand ones for a good price. It will last you.

A second hand Emmaljunga would work, they're the sturdiest prams around and last forever, but they are heavy! They are good for tall/heavy kids and have a huge metal basket underneath that can take a lot of weight - great for bags etc.

I have the emmaljunga duo combi and it would work well for you (you'd only need the normal seat, not the bassinette). There are heaps of second hand ones for sale on ebay.

Fitnesswise sport buggy! You can usually pick them up 2nd hand off ebay or gumtree for about $100 or under.
Here is a picture of it.

I think they are called Pedigree Sports buggies now and are sold in NZ. They are slightly bigger than mountain buggys and can hold older children up to 45kg and are often used for children with disabilities.
You can still buy new buggys and replacement parts  here:

Baby Jogger City Elite has a weight capacity of 34kg and my 115cm, broad, 22kg DS1 fits in it very comfortably. It has a nice wide, deep seat and a very tall back.

Just an update - we ended up with a Baby Jogger City Elite and it's perfect! Plenty of room to still grow into.

Thanks for the recommendations everyone.
