Let’s talk stroller accessories! Do you want to turn your hand-me-down Graco into the Porsche 911 Roadster Express of Library Storytime? Have you always dreamed of putting your baby in one of those faux sheepskin stroller burrito bags even though it’s not actually that cold out? Or do you just want someplace to rest your giant coffee while you pull that CVS receipt your baby has been chewing on out of his mouth?

Either way, we’ve got you covered. Here’s our list of all the best gear to trick out your stroller.

Best Stroller Accessories

Do Not Touch Stroller Tag

Babies are irresistible so it's not surprising that well meaning people often reach in and touch a newborn without thinking about what's on their hands. I came up with these durable signs that can go on a stroller, car seat, or carrier if you are too hoarse from screaming, "keep your filthy hands off my precious baby!" at old ladies at the supermarket. 😉 You can find them all here.

stroller cup holder

Skip Hop Cup Holder

Great for coffee, water bottles and more, this Universal Cup Holder offers hands-free convenience on the go. From strollers to shopping carts and more, the holder securely connects to the included universal hub to keep drinks at your fingertips as you stroll. You can find it on the Skip Hop site.

toys clips

Baby Buddy Secure-A-Toy

Safely (and inexpensively) secures toys, pacifiers, teether, etc. to your stroller. There's a ton of color to choose from at buybuy Baby and on Amazon.

veer misting fan

Veer Misting Fan

This sucker is a fan AND has a misting function with up to 10 hours runtime (low fan, low mist), using a rechargeable battery. It was made for the Veer Wagon but it can fit any standard cup holder (including your cup holder in the car – sorry kid, mama needs misting!) You can find it at Pottery Barn Kids.

Bug Net

Basically, mosquito netting for your stroller (can use with pack n’ play too) that protects against bugs, bees, mosquitos & flying insects. Tropical vacation, anyone? I found this one at Target and on Amazon.

Grab & Go Stroller Organizer

Skip Hop Grab and Go

Made out of neoprene, aka wetsuit material, so good for insulation (and very sporty) and includes a detachable wallet/phone pouch with a wrist strap. You can find it on the Skip Hop site.

stroller bunting bag for baby on a walk with mom

7 A.M. Enfant Blanket 212 Evolution

Perfect for very cold weather, this is like a warm little sleeping bag for your baby. The top is adjustable and removable for temperature control and it forces baby to keep their damn socks on because they can’t reach their feet to pull them off and throw one into a black hole, never to be found again. Wish this came in adult sizes and I could be strolled around in a fuzzy sleeping bag, permanently. I found this one at Target and on Amazon. If you're looking for something a little more affordable, check out the JJ Cole options on Amazon.

Winter stroller mittens from 7AM Enfant

7 A.M. Enfant Warmmuffs

At first glance, these may seem dumb but they are actually brilliant because they stay with the stroller bar – not on your hands. Easy to access your baby, your phone, your coffee without dropping or losing a mitt. You can find them at Target and on Amazon.

stroller lock

Buggyguard Anti-Theft Retractable Stroller Lock

I think it takes a special kind of asshole to steal a baby stroller, but they are pricey so it happens. This lock has an extended cable length to loop through one or two wheels to lock your stroller to any stationary object. It has a 4 digit resettable combination dial so you don’t have to worry about losing any keys. It fits all strollers and keeps lock tucked out of the way until you’re ready to use it; Also doesn’t interfere with collapsing the stroller. You can pick it up at Walmart or this one on Amazon.

snack pod

Munchkin Brica Deluxe Snack Pod stroller accessory

Who doesn’t love snacks on the go?! The tray easily detaches for dishwasher cleaning and the quick-attach clamp can attach to almost any shape, tube, rail or seat. You can find it on their site or on Amazon.

toddler riding on stroller board with mom pushing stroller

Guzzie + Guss Ride-On Stroller Board

When you have a toddler who wants to walk but needs a place to hang when they poop out. This board fits most strollers and no adaptors are needed. You can find it at Walmart or Amazon.

Note: if you have a Mockingbird stroller, their riding board is amazing!  It sits off to the side so you're less likely to kick it while you're walking.

skip hop avocado stroller toy

Stroller Toys

There are tons of great toys out there. Keep an eye out for ones that can be clipped to the stroller so they aren’t jettisoned on walks. Skip Hop makes some of the best ones.
